My day was perfect. All down to the planning team and a special thank you to Maxine for keeping my day just perfect.... she held everyone together and kept spirits high and stress levels low. Our stay was brilliant. Our room over looking Carbis bay was superb. The staff were very attentive. The food in the Sands restaurant was delicious....

I have never added a review before but felt saddened by our experience at the Carbis Bay Hotel. We booked a Deluxe room with sea view on my 50th Birthday with my husband, as wanted to go to St Ives & visit Minack Theatre.

We have just had a lovely 2 day stay at Carbis Bay. The staff are fantastic as usual and the food quality gets better and better. We walked into St Ives which was great but a bit hilly. Went to a cafe called scoff troff which was a good find.

Our promise to return from a winter break last year has just been fulfilled and as before, this hotel is quite delightful. The food, I think, is as good if not better than last winter. Generally We could not fault it. hoping to return next winter.

Visited here mid January. Plenty to do. Fantastic food, scenery and beach-even in winter. Good base to explore. Staff couldn't do enough. Spa also great and one staff member remembered me from last year. Outside Jacuzzi -hot-outside pool-warm!
