Very nice Hotel
Reviewed 23 hours ago

Very nice Hotel, staff extremely polite and very helpful about 20 mins walk into St Ives
a bit longer along the costal path.The cooked breakfast was prepared very well and presantation excellant.The only down side was that our room was very small exspecially the bath room, ok for a couple of days but no longer.
They also need to take the picture of the pool of their Gannet profile as very misleading.

This was a lovely hotel for our 3 night stay for our wedding anniversary. The food is absolutely fantastic for the money, so much so that we ate there every night. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Helen, Tina & Martina who made us feel so welcome. You can clearly see that they are passionate about providing a warm friendly atmosphere and a stress-free stay. Access to the Carbis Bay Spa facilities was most welcome, we had some treatments which were VERY relaxing. All in all a very nice stay in a wonderful part of the country.

"A Wonderful Experience"

We stayed at The Gannet in September to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversay. The staff were amazing from the moment we walked in to the time we left, nothing was too much trouble. We had a beautiful room overlooking the bay and we were blessed with good weather. The bedding was all top quality cotton and the pillows wow, so comfortable. The food was truly delicious and served by very engaging staff. The lounge was comfortable with discreet seating areas to enjoy a drink before or after dinner. We very much liked taking the train into St. Ives, Carbis Bay station is only a short walk away. We were able to use the C Spa at the Carbis Bay Hotel and I had a massage and a facial which were very good, we also ate dinner one night at the Carbis Bay another great culinary delight.

Would certainly stay at The Gannet again, the hotel was welcoming, warm and friendly.

Lovely experience. Great hotel

We stayed in October for a short break. The staff were very helpful and changed our room easily to one with a bath when requested. The hotel is really well situated with a 5min walk to the train station for Carbis Bay which is only a 5min ride to St Ives and it’s wealth of shops and harbour.
The hotel is modernly furnished with a superb style and the food we had was wonderful. Being linked to the Carbis Bay Hotel itself meant we were able to use their lovely beachside spa facilities. Breakfast was included and was a really good quality. Have already booked to come again in November and will certainly recommend to others. Thanks all at the Gannet for our very pleasant stay.
