        Staff were very helpful and the room was of a good standard. Location was spot on and restaurant nearby very nice.

        Food menu was not extensive.

        It was exactly what we were looking for at that time. We would certainly return.

        Not really but the absence of a lift might make the second floor a problem for some visitors.

      • Older travelers

        the staff were very helpful and friendly and dealt with our small problems efficiently

        The staff were very friendly and helpful. They were very helpful with regards to the problem commented on below also. Overall, a pleasant stay.

        we ran out of hot water, so as i'd already started my shower, i had a cold shower - which was not pleasant, and my husband had to go to another room to have a warm shower, as we needed to check out. Also, we had to wait too long to be seated to our table at dinner, even though we booked.

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        it was near the attractions i wanted to visit

        i think it was over priced for what it was. the water in the bathroom and especially the shower was either freezing or scalding. it was almost impossible to have a shower. in the end i settled for cool

      • Older travelers

        Friendly, helpful staff, large comfortable room. Hotel is in a nice area, although not quite on the cliffs we had good sea views.

        Pool not available when we stayed.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        Generally the hotel was what I would expect from 3 star AA. The bed was comfortable and a good view.

        The bathroom shower was inadequate and the bath water ran very brown.It was very difficult to get the temperature of the water right in the shower and the power was poor. The fire alarm rang at about 7.30 am and we were obliged to stand outside for at least half an hour without explanation.

        Sea side walking. Good breakfast and food + free WiFi!

      • Group of friends
        9.2

        The room was brilliant for the money. bright, clean and good freeview reception. lovely views over the bay.

        Main evening meals were a bit overpriced and the bar service was slow.

      • Older travelers
        4.2

        Poor service at breakfast, bed extremely soft. Will not use again.

      • Couple
        6.6

        I liked the hotel and breakfast the staff were very helpful.

        The bathroom was very very small and the shower was so slow that it took forever to wash my hair. The sauna is only available certain times and I do feel that the dinner should have more variety.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Very welcoming, pleasant and friendly staff, spotlessly clean and a damned good hearty breakfast.

      • Single
        7.8

        This was a good base for visiting the Eden Project and the other surrounding attractions.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Good location, spacious room

        Furniture is dated and tired. 4Poster bed is old hat and makes the room feel smaller than it is.

      • Older travelers
        5.4

        Travelled around the local area. Were on our way to St Ives for a week

        Room small overlooking fire escape and over kitchen, kitchen fan on until after 11 pm and started again at 5 am. The hotel was not full, so why use this room? Faulty fire alarm. Had us all out of our rooms several times within 20 minutes. .Breakfast very slow. Not enough staff on to cover the amount of guests "who all came down at 9 am" Was this surprising on a Sunday? Reception could not find a bill for us to pay. they eventually sent one through the post to us
