Cornwall is popular throughout the year, due to its "mild climate, breathtaking scenery and long stretches of sandy beach" (Condé Nast Traveller), and its Atlantic coast is dotted with some of the UK's most beautiful coves and bays.

The Gannet Inn is in the village of Carbis Bay on the North Cornwall coast. The country-style property opened in 2015 and has "unique interiors with all the style and finesse of a boutique hotel", according to The AA.

The art galleries and winding cobbled streets of St Ives are five minutes' drive away, while the hotel's sister property, Carbis Bay Hotel, is 15 minutes' walk away -- guests at The Gannet Inn can head there to use the hotel's spa facilities, outdoor pool and Blue Flag beach.

The Gannet Inn has a restaurant that serves classic British dishes, burgers and pasta, and a bar with a dartboard and a pool table. There is also a lounge with a fireplace and leather armchairs. Breakfast is served daily from 7:30-10am.

"Stylish, high-standard" (The AA) bedrooms are individually designed and soundproof, and feature neutral décor and bespoke furniture. Wi-Fi is free.

A good location on the St. Ives bus route, which stops almost outside the hotel. Very courteous staff and a great breakfast selection. Dinner was good too.
Other Comments
Probably because we did a deal on-line, on a 'dinner inclusive' package, we were allocated a very small room, which was comfortable, but with very little in the way of drawer space etc. to put anything away. We therefore lived out of the suitcase for our stay. Just a minor point, whoever designed the shower, didn't provide for anywhere to put the shampoo/shower gel. How does that work?
