After reading the reviews. I was slightly worried about our upcoming visit to the castle. But the reviews could not be further from the truth.
Our visit was amazing from the start to end.
The drive up to the castle is breathtaking. The entrance is plush and transforms you back in time.
Our room was a west wing sea view. WOW
The room was massive. A huge bed , sofa and chair in the room.
The views were to die for. The view of St Ives simply stunning. Day and night. We could see the outdoor pool and wonderful grounds.
The room was serviced every day. Tea and coffee topped up.
The food in the castle is first class. Breakfast was full of choice. Staff are all very friendly and helpful.
The brassiere restaurant is lovely ,the crab linguine is perfect.
Again the staff friendly and helpful. Thank you.
The spa is lovely and relaxing. All the facilities make your stay even more special.
We loved the short cut through the woodland walk to get to St Ives.
Cannot wait to return to play golf.
A must for couples and families.

As always we really enjoyed our stay in one of the lodges. Apparently there's a rolling upgrade programme & it was great to see the master bathroom had a spanking new corner bath....the timeshare staff were coy about this & the maintenance staff confirmed it was because there had been a problem with the original one. Anyway, an improvement is an improvement! Hopefully the (dated) kitchen will be next...green plastic sink.....grim!
Of course the views were great &, despite it NOT being one of the many hot sunny weeks of the summer (a few mornings we awoke to drizzle), the micro-climate won out & nothing stopped our enjoyment of the facilities, although the tennis courts are very long overdue some attention
See you next year!

We had a really lovely 4-night stay at this hotel. The grounds are just beautiful and the hotel has so much charm. We stayed in a sea-view room and it was lovely, with really high ceilings and a gorgeous sash window looking out into the gardens with the sea in the distance. The room and bathroom were both spotless with everything you could want for a short break. We ate twice in the brasserie restaurant and thought the food was delicious, with the Sunday roast being very good value for money - highly recommended.

Breakfast was fantastic with a hot buffet that was regularly replenished so stayed fresh, with all the elements you could need for a full English. There was also plenty of Continental options with patries, breaks, cakes, fruit and cereal if you prefer. We honestly thought the breakfast was just brilliant.

All of the staff we met were polite and friendly and made us feel welcome. The indoor and outdoor pools are also not to be missed. The location was also excellent, only 15 minutes walk from the centre of St Ives, although it's a little steep on the way back - good for burning off all those breakfast calories!

All in all we had a fabulous stay here. I have made lots of a large hints to my boyfriend about getting married there so we will hopefully see you again in the future :D I can just imagine the stunning photos with that cracking view :)

Room Tip: Pay extra for sea view - you won't regret it

The property is very beautiful, especially the various gardens and nature walks. The hotel is castle like and has spacious rooms, lobby, resturant and bar. There are also private event rooms that were holding wedding receptions during our stay. The bar area is adequate and food can be ordered. The restaurant is nice. The food was very good. There is an indoor and outdoor pool which were very nice. A golf course is also on property but it appears shorter than a typical USA course. The room was spacious but a little updating would help. However, if you stay in your room your missing out on a lot around the property and St. Ives. It is walking distance to town, which is lovely and can be crowded, but fun. Plenty of good bakery’s, food shops, shopping, restaurants, and other highlights. The hotel has good parking and all of St. Ives can be reached by walking or a short cab ride. The hotel,property has a walk path towards town. We used the hotel as our base for touring Cornwall, which turned out to be a good choice. Any site of interest is no more than one hour or less away and good planning can have you acessing several tour sites in one day with the castle giving great respite at the end of the day.

Room Tip: Some rooms offer sea views from atop of a hill.

This resort is perched on the hill above St Ives with amazing views of sea and the Town below. They offer both self catering cottages and hotel rooms. We were self catering and enjoyed a really peaceful week there. We used the heated indoor pool and the gardens and were delighted by both. There are lots of other things on offer so check their website including a children's play area heated outdoor pool leisure and beauty centre. All of the staff were extremely courteous and helpful, Gill from reception was outstanding when we had a problem with our first cottage and offered an alternative immediately. The area around St Ives has so many beaches and such a beautiful coastline for walking and family days. The town is bustling with shops art galleries and bakeries. We visited Lands End whilst there which is an easy journey by car. We were blessed with 6 sunny days and spent most of each of them out of the cottage, had we wanted to stay in the cottage more it was very comfortable and clean with tv and an excellent WiFi connection. There are lots of other attractions in the area and I would highly recommend it for a family or couples visit. It is a wonderful wedding venue we saw one on either weekend we were there. The walk up and down the hill to the town would be challenging for anyone with walking difficulties but again easy by car.

Room Tip: Stunning views from sea facing rooms lovely quiet resort with great leisure and beauty facilities
