The Queen's Hotel is a late-Georgian, three-story building in the heart of picturesque St Ives. 5 mins from the harbour and beaches, we have ten en-suite bedrooms, which have been redecorated with vintage furniture and Cornish artwork hanging on the freshly painted walls, plus sparkling new bathrooms with new showers. Downstairs is a relaxed and friendly bar with delicious pub food that has been awarded AA rosettes consistently since 2011. Everything is prepared here - the menu is chalked up on the board and uses the finest local, seasonal ingredients Cornwall has to offer. Favourites include Beef Stew with Dumplings. Local beers. Warming fire. Children are very welcome: a camp bed and a travel cot are available to borrow plus sofa beds, all windows have black-out blinds; downstairs there are boardgames + toys; baby-changing; children's menu. The harbour front and Fore Street are under five minutes walk away. Selected by Alastair Sawdays.
