Good Hotel Guide Review

St Ives in summer, for all its charms, is crowded. But stroll along the Coastal Path, or take the train one stop to Carbis Bay, and you can be sitting here on the sun terrace, drink in hand, gazing out to the lighthouse that inspired Virginia Woolf. Marianne and Jonathan Bassett have gone for boutique chic at their 1930s hotel, with ‘big glass doors’, ‘clean, light open spaces’, and shades of cream, sand and sea. Most bedrooms have an ocean view; all are well supplied with a cafetière, bottled water, magazines, bathrobes and slippers. Splurge on the spacious ‘celebration’ room, with a sunken bath in the room. At breakfast tuck in to ‘a better-than-average buffet’ with fresh fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice and home-made muesli; a ‘delicious’ full English uses locally sourced ingredients, with ‘lovely Cornish-made brown sauce’. Lazy afternoons call for a Cornish cream tea anywhere you care to sit; in the evening, ask for ‘good advice’ about local restaurants, or enjoy a simple supper ‘with a hint of the Med’. More reports, please.

Guest comments

'Stunning sea views from dining room and expansive decking. Staff friendly and helpful throughout. Meals very good with prompt service. Lighting not quite good enough to read in lounge or bedroom. ' - Geoffrey and Sue Bignell - June, 2016
'It has a very good feeling; a refreshing attitude of 'what can we do to help?' Our standard room was immaculate; and had a view of the sea. Downstairs are clean, light open-plan spaces. Breakfast was excellent. The station for the branch line to St Ives is five minutrs' walk away. They give good advice about restaurants but I stayed in and enjoyed a simple supper on the terrace. The service was delightful. ' - D B - July, 2012
