Our favourite rooms
Room Six (the Harbour View Roof Suite) is a romantic hideaway in the eaves with Fifties-style white and blue decor, twin butcher sinks and views stretching out to Virginia Woolf-inspiring Godrevy lighthouse. Room Four (the Harbour View Petite Superior) is cosy and charming with white slatted-wood decor and a textured glass-block feature wall.
A Barbour waterproof for when brisk sea winds blow and a sturdy pair of boots to tackle hiking trails (you can follow the South West Coast Path all the way to Penzance), alongside some swimwear and sunnies of course.
Owners Olivier and Angela are more than happy to organise Champagne cream teas on the beach, spa days or treatments, and tailor-made outings around St Ives and the local area.
This refined hotel has few family-friendly activities, so it’s best enjoyed with your chosen first mate, without a kiddy crew in tow. Young Smiths aged 12-and-up are welcome.
All breakfast and afternoon tea ingredients are sourced from local suppliers and all packaging is recycled.
