Good Hotel Guide Review
On a hill above the beach at Carbis Bay, Marianne and Jonathan Bassett’s ‘well-situated’ 1930s hotel is a stylish, bright and breezy retreat with ‘stunning sea views’ across the water to Godrevy lighthouse. The staff are bright and breezy, too, Guide readers report this year: ‘They were friendly and helpful throughout, and took a real interest in our plans each day.’ Sunshine streams through glass doors on to stripped floorboards; the decor is in fresh, seascape-inspired shades. The bedrooms vary in size, but all are supplied with cafetière coffee (fresh milk on request), good toiletries, bathrobes, slippers and magazines. (‘One niggle: we thought the light a little dim for reading.’) Choose a room facing the sea: the best in the house has a panoramic view of St Ives Bay. Walk the South West Coastal Path or catch one of the frequent trains into the buzzy town; return for an alfresco cream tea or, most nights, a simple but ‘very good’ supper – maybe a beetroot and feta salad, or fish soup with rouille. Plenty of choice at breakfast: local farm sausages and dry-cured bacon, French toast, oak-smoked salmon, Burford Brown eggs, ricotta hotcakes. (Geoffrey and Sue Bignell)
