Booked months ago for Mother's Day lunch only to have them ring up 6 week before saying we couldn't go now everywhere else is Fully booked very upset mother. One star is too good a rating

Thank Rik K
Management response:

Dear Rik, we're very sorry for the disappointment. It is stated on the back of our vouchers that they're not applicable Mother's Day unfortunately. If you would like to contact myself Nancy at the hotel we can hopefully work with you to get something else arranged? Kind regards More

Finding a place to park in St Ives is a nightmare! We drove around (and around), and gave up! We saw the Carbis Bay Hotel on the way out of town. What a gem! We walked into the bar and were greeted by the delightful Penny. What a treat to be served by such a lovely person! We had a... More

Took in a brunch when in the area walking the beach. Quite high end for this locale. Good if you have time to soak in the scenery as no one seems to be in much of a rush to serve, but worth trying at least once.

Booked here for afternoon tea... On arrival you get stung £5 for parking! No staff interested in greeting you as you arrive, they just snapped at us that we couldn't bring a dog in, when we were wondering where our table might be outside... Staff all look dazed, scruffy and dumb. We had to talk to 4 members of staff... More

Whilst on holiday in Lelant at the end of May, my wife and I came across this delightful establishment whilst walking along the beach into St Ives. It is situated right on the beach, roughly half way on our journey and was like an oasis for us, somewhere to stop and refuel. On both occasions we visited, we experienced friendly... More
