So we stayed here as a last minute thing, picked it due to it’s location, fab views and within walking distance of the town. The room was amazing, bed was super comfy, all the bits and pieces you would expect in a room were there and the staff were really friendly. Swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna were lovely, as was the pool side bar, which has amazing views. We would definitely stay here again but wouldn’t have the breakfast another time. We do a lot of last minute random nights away in the area. At the other places, breakfast has been included in the price of the room or a small charge on top, these other breakfasts have matched the quality of The Garrack breakfast. We both felt £15 per head was too much. This is not to say the food wasn’t enjoyable but the price was just a bit high for what we got. Aside from the breakfast, there was nothing that would put us off from staying again!

I just cannot believe how many of my wishes came true when we visited The Garrack!
My husband and I were lucky to get away for a break just after New Year and had booked a bargain with The Garrack with another website. Given the price we paid we had quite steady expectations but oh my goodness the VIEW from the bedroom was STUNNING! We could see Porthmeor Beach and the harbour clearly and the room was really large and with a comfortable bed. We ate breakfast in the cafe bar next to the indoor pool, with an equally stunning view. What made this extra special was the no-hassle parking and being able to walk into St Ives without any stress about the car. We will most definitely be returning! Thanks to all at The Garrack!

Room tip: Ask for a sea view! We were in Room 20 :-)

We had only one night in this lovely hotel, but we will be back again. The reception team were very welcoming and the receptionist carried my case to the room and made sure our room was ok. The view was lovely and the room comfortable. This is an old building so some may feel the room needed an update, but for me it was great- warm and comfortable with good shower and bath.

The meal in the restaurant was outstanding, the service was absolutely fabulous.
We enjoyed a drink in the lounge by a real fire, so found it very relaxing.

Bed very comfortable, then breakfast was delicious- many diets catered for including gluten free.

There is a lovely garden surrounding the hotel, and an indoor pool café and bar- which we may get to use next time.

We loved our short stay, very relaxing!

The breakfast variety and quality was the best I’ve had in a hotel. The food was exceptional. I also had one of the best expresso martinis in the pool bar.

The staff were fabulous, the rooms are well equipped and the beds are very comfortable.

The only improvement that could be made would be the shower pressure, often the shower lost all water pressure but, this is understandable in an old building.

Would highly recommend and definitely stay again.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at The Garrack. We think a comfy bed and a great breakfast are two of the most important things in a hotel stay. That is why our hot breakfasts are cooked to order rather than being cooked and kept warm under hot lamps; it may take a little longer, but we think it is worth the wait.
Remember to book direct with the reception team for your next stay on 01736 796199 for any deals and to choose the room spec you require.
