Cornwall is popular throughout the year, with its "mild climate, breathtaking scenery and long stretches of sandy beach" (Condé Nast Traveller). St Ives is no exception; it has a well-known art scene, winding cobbled streets and "turquoise bays" (Lonely Planet).

The Gannet Inn, a country-style boutique hotel that opened in 2015, sits in the seaside village of Carbis Bay, around five minutes' drive from St Ives. It's also 10 minutes' walk from Carbis Bay railway station, which is 10 minutes by train from St Ives.

Guests get access to facilities including a heated outdoor pool open all year, a hydrotherapy pool and panoramic sea-view treatment rooms at sister property Carbis Bay Hotel -- 10 minutes' walk away. Carbis Bay Hotel sits along a private 25-acre picturesque beach that's been awarded a Blue Flag for the last 10 years. You can access the South West Coast Path from the hotel.

The Gannet Inn has a restaurant/bar, and a cosy lounge with a large fireplace. The bar has a dartboard and a pool table, and breakfast is served from 7:30-10am.

Good location and a very nice, well appointed property. Nice bar area, restaurant and lounge.
Other Comments
Disappointed that our room had windows with frosted glass (to conceal the poor outlook) which became a little claustrophobic. Some aspects were a little more form over function with a shower over a roll top bath which was awkward to manage with a wrap around shower curtain. No mirror over the sink made shaving difficult. Would request a different room if we were to go again.
