Booked in for one night only and asked for a sea view and a bath and got both! Well happy about that. The room was clean , bed comfy, heating in good working order. The staff very helpful and pleasant. Very good inexpensive hotel booked through late rooms.com. Will come again. One thing st. Ives is a steep hill away not so good if you have reduced mobility. could have provided shower cap and shower gel but not complaining as the room makes up for that.

Room Tip: Room 209 twin, sea view with a bath and shower fantastic view from window

The views overlooking Porthminster beach are stunning whatever the season. As a Shearings hotel we have many great offers available which enable you to have comfortable accommodation, traditional food and evening entertainment most nights. Currently there is available a book before you leave offer that allows some great discounts to be had. This comes in handy when planning the next break away and this could be in any of the hotels in the Bay or Coast and Country brand.
Thanks for completing this review its always pleasing to know that someone has enjoyed the break with us.

We have family in St Ives and this time decided to try coach hol. How can they do it for the money! We have paid £90 night for seafront position just for b&b and room wasn't any better in fact half the size had to find money for petrol etc!! Although hotel outdated etc clean and staff excellent. Food although not brilliant good enough and comes very hot and enough for anyone. We were so impressed booked weekend to Isle of Wight while there!

Thank you for your positive reviews and taking the time to post it. Certainly hope that you enjoy your next break to the Isle of Wight. Shearings have many great offers on at the moment, and it is worth taking up the opportunity to get that fantastic deal of the discounts available for the book before you leave.

Went to this hotel for a Birthday break away! What a nice time we had! I asked for a View which I didnt expect to get as I didnt pay a high price, but the view from the room was the best I have ever had, the room itself was big and the bed was very comfy! the staff was nice and friendly and very welcoming, just want say a BIG thank you to caroline (I think her name was) with shortish brown hair for the welcome and remembering who we was and for the Birthday card, working front of house myself in a hotel her friendly approach was great so a big thank you. only small let down was the breakfast but im not a big breakfast fan anyway but the st ives bay hotel is a very nice place to stay not far from the shops. we will be back in the summer.

I agree that the views from the sea view rooms overlooking Porthminster beach are stunning even when out of the main season.
The staff here are very keen to make everyone feel special , its great that your birthday was remembered and hopefully a memorable one.
The breakfast choices range from cereals to fresh fruit, to ham and eggs to full English, vegetarian choices are always available.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review and look forward to seeing you again in the season.

Its great to hear that you liked the newly refurbished room and the new lounge furniture. The chefs pride themselves in serving good, hot food and it would appear that you were well satisfied again with the food.
As you are seasoned travellers you will be aware of the great deals Shearings have available at the moment on breaks throughout the year. Give us a call at the hotel when you need your next visit arranging and we will be more than happy to obilge.
