There is parking on site which is important but disabled travellers...

Thank you for leaving your review and for choosing the Chy an Albany for your recent stay. Our partial sea view rooms are the same size as our standard rooms but with the advantage of being on the side of the hotel and facing the bay. Our deluxe rooms do offer larger accommodation but this is reflected in the prices....

In total there was over 20 of us staying so it was a real family affair and i had done the original booking for everyone after seeing reviews on Trip Advisors so i felt the 'booking pressure'. However, the hotel did not disappoint....

The staff were wonderful and although we didn't eat in the restaurant the breakfasts were generous and offered something for everyone. Rooms were a...

A mile from the hustle and bustle of St. Ives town centre situated in an elevated position overlooking Carbis Bay and facing westwards for wonderful sunsets over Godrevy Beach, this hotel offers good accommodation at reasonable prices. The restaurant is certainly 'five star' with beautifully cooked full English and continental buffet breakfasts with an optional cooked-to-order menu (no additional charge)...
