Why We Love It

  • It's a boutique hotel that overlooks its own Blue Flag beach
  • The luxury spa boasts a 5-bubble rating, and the hotel holds a VisitEngland Silver Award for its high-quality service
  • There's a heated outdoor pool, a sauna and a champagne bar
  • The 2-AA-Rosette-awarded restaurant serves fresh seafood caught daily by local fishing boats

Overview

Carbis Bay Hotel was built in 1894 and is perched on a hillside overlooking its own white-sand Blue Flag beach, which is currently part of a beach regeneration project. The hotel was the inspiration for The Sands Hotel in the novels of Rosamunde Pilcher, and Virginia Woolf -- a former guest -- is said to have used Godrevy Lighthouse across the bay as her inspiration for To the Lighthouse.

Facilities at this Cornish gem include the award-winning C Bay Spa, which boasts a heated outdoor pool, a hydrotherapy pool, a sauna pod and a Ruinart champagne bar. There is also an accredited watersports centre, where you can hire canoes and paddleboards at an extra cost.

You will be spoiled for choice with three dining options at this hotel. The fine-dining Sands Restaurant serves seafood that arrives daily from fishing boats in St Ives, and you can sip a cocktail, cognac or champagne at the bar, and watch the sun set over the sea. The Beach Club Restaurant and The Conservatory serve lighter bites in a more casual environment.

St Ives -- with its "pretty jumble of slate roofs, church towers and turquoise bays" (Lonely Planet), home to Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum -- is a 10-minute drive or a 1.2-mile walk away. The South West Coast Path runs past the front of the hotel, and offers a leisurely walk into the town. Godrevy Lighthouse, St Michael's Mount and Penzance are all within 25 minutes' drive. Wi-Fi is free.

LOCATION IS SUPERB RIGHT ON LOVELY BEACH FRONT, RESTAURANT STAFF AND THE SERVICE WAS FIRST CLASS UNFORTUNATELY FOR MY WIFE AND I THE SWIMMING POOL WAS CLOSED, WHICH WAS A DOWNSIDE, ALSO DUE TO WORK GOING ON YOU HAD TO WALK THROUGH THE DINING AREA TO GET ACCESS TO THE SPA, WHICH PUT ME OFF A LITTLE IN USING THE SPA FACILITIES. ALSO A FITNESS SUITE WOULD BE A GOOD ADDITION TO THE SPA IN MY OPINION.
