    The breakfast was very good. Apleasant 10 minute walk into St Ives. Bedroom was not big but was comfortable and had a view over the sea.

    Shower was weak and bathroom a bit cold, but nothing major.

    Breakfast was good but that's the only thing that was

    O my god ! Where shall I start ? As we were taken to the room the hallway was totally full of cleaning stuff and laundry,then the room was so small and smelt old,damp and dirty, the receptionist then told us that if we could be out tomorow because the "maintenance man" needed to paint the bathroom !!!!! Ok so we all know these things must be done but before guests get there, looking at the shower it was clear that something need to be done........the ceiling had paint falling off , the shower was mouldy and it was so small ! Now the bed !!! It was quite comfortable if you could ignore the old dirty pillows that must have been full of skin cells and dribble . We also had no idea that we had intact booked into an old folks home .

    Fabulous

    The room was quiet and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was very good with nice quality food and plenty of choice. The evening snack menu served us with an ideal top up without being a full meal which we did not want during the evening. Fantastic views from the breakfast room.

    Car park a bit uneven thanks to the torrential rain that pours out of the sky. Not the fault of the hotel.

    Staff was friendly and efficient. Breakfast was good and food in the restaurant and bar in the evening was excellent. The Sun Lounge was a very pleasant place to linger over a drink.

    Bed in single room was small and a bit uncomfortable.

    Exceptional

    Very freindly and efficient staff. Nothing too much trouble.Rooms with sea view are worth the extra. The food in the Lighthouse restaurant was excellent and exceptional good value and equal to anything we found in St Ives Town but at better value. Breakfast was self serve from a hot buffet with plenty of choice and we ordered poach eggs that were served along with the Tea Coffee etc to the table. Exceptional value for a very comfortable hotel with great sea views.
