We had a super few days away at The Cornwall. It is a hotel we know well as we have stayed there before. Staff are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. We have stayed in the lodges and in the hotel and we would return to either. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the housekeeping team are ...
Great hotel with fabulous views 5 minutes walk from the centre of St Ives. A room with a sea view is a must if it’s within your budget. Comfort cleanliness and breakfast all very good. Staff very pleasant and helpful. See photo for view from a beach facing window.

My partner and I stayed here early November and on arrival were given a free upgrade to a room with balcony which was a lovely surprise. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be coming back.
Excellent hotel, very clean, extremely modern with very lovely staff... The rooms were a pleasure to stay in and the food was perfect at a good price! I will be back..
Nice old hotel,beach only a two minute walk, great views from the top. Hotel staff really good as expected, good size car park.
We only live locally but were in town for 40th birthday celebrations, so thought we'd give the Alverton a try. Had a lovely room in the courtyard with a giant bath and generally very clean and tidy room, would absolutely recommend in a heartbeat.
The hotel was easy to get to and a lovely 'stop off' whilst on a long journey down to Cornwall. The facilities were just what we needed and although we arrived slightly later than planned, we received a friendly welcome by staff. The room had everything that we needed and was very comfortable.
With glistening waters and abundant countryside, it's hardly surprising that Cornwall is emerging as one of the country's most popular holiday destinations. Tucked away in the far south-west of the country, Cornwall is an ideal spot for those seeking some relaxation on their holidays. Conversely, there's also plenty of opportunity for visitors to try their hands at various extreme sports. Whatever's on your holiday itinerary, you can be sure that one of the county's many four star hotels will make for the stay of a lifetime.
The undulating moors and sleepy fishing villages are sure to help clear your mind during your time in Cornwall, but if you're looking for something extra to take the edge off, the county's spa hotels are sure to have the answer. Spa hotels in Cornwall typically offer a variety of unique treatments, which range from massages to facials, and from pedicures to soothing aromatherapy. Whatever your ailment, whether it's a sore back or just stress from work, you can be sure that the spa professionals will be ease you back into good health.
Many of the spa hotels also have indoor pools, meaning you can get a good swim in, even if the weather isn't welcoming enough to lure you to the beach. Fitness centres are also common.
Food typically plays a central role in holidays, with sampling the local cuisine high up on most tourists' lists of things to do. In Cornwall, the central theme tends to be seafood but most towns will offer a plethora of restaurants, serving foods from all over the globe. For the best selection of restaurants, head to the county's bigger towns, such as Newquay, Falmouth, Truro or Penzance.
In terms of local specialities, there are a few to choose from, and Cornwall is fast becoming one of the country's most attractive 'foodie' destinations, thanks to its wealth of local produce and, of course, that bounty from the sea. But you can't visit the county without trying a classic pasty - best enjoyed by the seaside (but watch out for the seagulls!).
Many of the county's four star hotels will feature an in-house restaurant. For smaller hotels in Cornwall such as guesthouses and B&Bs, the staff will always be happy to point you in the direction of the best local eateries.
Cornwall's coastline is undoubtedly its foremost charm. Spanning rugged cliffs and tranquil, idyllic coves and harbours, the Cornish coast features something for everyone. Those looking to jump right in and get to grips with the surf should head to the north coast. The popular town of Newquay houses plenty of surf schools for beginners. The coastline just to the north of Newquay offers some quieter beaches, many of which are equally good for surfing.
If your idea of enjoying the coast is more laid-back, the south coast is probably right for you. There are plenty of four star hotels offering luxurious retreats just minutes from the beach. In summer, the south coast has a wealth of sheltered coves ideal for swimming. In winter months, the gorgeous Channel is best viewed from the cliffs.
