Stayed for 2 nights, made very welcome. Room comfortable and clean, excellent breakfast.
The hotel is at the end of a quiet road, front rooms of the hotel having sea views.
Short walk to the train station, which takes the most scenic route into St Ives. The beach is only a 5 minute walk down the hill.
Would be very happy to stay there again.

We stayed here for a couple of nights on a recent tour of the West Country. The property is in the charming village of Lelant, where we enjoyed lovely walks along the coast. Our accommodation was in the Old Laundry which is the smaller option but ideal for a couple. Sue is a charming hostess and very knowledgeable about the local area. Breakfast is cooked to order, plentiful and taken in the main house, which is charming and full of artworks and other interesting bits and bobs! The other accommodation is larger, over two floors, we had the opportunity to look at it and it is stunning. Everything is based around a charming little courtyard with lovely planting and pottery (Adrian runs his pottery business from the site). Great local pub opposite and another pub a short walk away, meals available at both.
friendly reception on arrival.off the beaten track with good views across countryside.good selection for breakfast,cooked food good.very friendly public house detached from b&b rooms.very large double room,(could accomodate another 2 single beds and still be a spaciousfamily room), en-suite ,(shower no bath),modern & spotless.Will use again when in this area.THANK-YOU HELEN & STEVE FOR A VERY PLEASANT STAY.
Situated in a quiet village about 5 min driver from Hayles golden beach. The room we stayed in is separate from the pub with it's own front door. The room itself was lovely, possibly recently refurbished. We had dinner in the pub, we ordered a normal portion and a small portion of scampi and chips from the bar menu. If I'd realised how big the small portion was going to be, I would have ordered that instead of the normal portion! (Not a complaint by any means!!).
The breakfast was nice. The table was already laid for us when we got there with a choice of cereal. We were then brought coffee/tea and asked if we wanted full english. We took this offer up and the breakfast was lovely.
Would stay again.
"hotel ok but they have got the leisure side wrong"
There are some really goods points; the bar area and lounge are very well done - although these areas clearly have been this way for many years and the regal look remains attractive. Room was ok; basic TV with no sky or movies as options.
My only reason for classing this hotel as generaly OK was the dissapointing spa area - sauna was the size of a telephone box, changing room had 1 seat to seat down on, tiny lockers, two showers which took up 3 times the space that everyone had to change in; whilst i was changing there were 7 people trying to dress in a 3 metre square area. Pool cleaning kit left by the bubble spa but easily the worst thing was the amount of locals that poored in, there seems to be a membership option meaning both the gym and pool area were populated by alot of them particulalry young lads aiming to get buff with their mates - I did speak to a couple of hotel guests who found it intimidating and far from inviting.
One more thng - the resurant staff were at times inexperienced; i had to ask for knives and forks etc which i thought was a given in that job.
Very nice people, the breakfasts were delicious, and the room we stayed at was spacious and comfortable. If we travel to Cornwall in the future, we would hope there is an open room available. Close to St Michael's Mount and St Ives as well.
