Why We Love This Hotel

  • This boutique hotel overlooks its own Blue Flag beach
  • The luxury spa has a Good Spa Guide 5-bubble rating, and the hotel holds a VisitEngland Silver Award
  • There's a heated outdoor pool, a sauna and a champagne bar
  • You can dine on fresh seafood caught by local fishing boats at the 2-AA-Rosette restaurant


Carbis Bay Hotel was built in 1894, and sits on a hillside above its own white-sand Blue Flag beach. 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.

St Ives -- a "pretty jumble of slate roofs, church towers and turquoise bays" (Lonely Planet), that is home to Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum -- is 20 minutes away by bus. You can also walk into town in about 30 minutes along the South West Coast Path, which runs past the hotel. St Michael's Mount and Penzance are within 25 minutes' drive.

Facilities within the "handsome 125-acre estate" (The Daily Telegraph) include the C Bay Spa, which has a 5-bubble rating from the Good Spa Guide, 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 for an extra cost.

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 while watching the sun set over the sea. The Beach Club Restaurant and The Conservatory both serve lighter bites in a more casual environment. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel.

It took forever to order our dinner choices. We were early for our 18.45 table, so we’re encouraged to have a drink. We sat in their conservatory , with our bottle of wine, and had to ask for the menus at 19.00. After 10 minutes we asked to sit at our table and the menu was presented again, and we still had to ask to give our order, After that all staff were very attentive and charming, BUT, we did feel that we had been ignored for being early.

There seemed to be a lack of care & service from the reception staff. Arriving after a tiring journey with a sore damaged hip I just wanted to rest & was limping badly. Instead we were made to walk up a steep hill to accommodation away from the hotel. ( a superior room inside the hotel was on our travelzoo invoice). This alternative was out of the question due to the pain I was suffering- we had told the receptionist about it before she walked us there. So we said this accommodation was out of the question & they then placed us in a room at the top of the building (no lift). Which we had to accept. I also found a similar lack of caring in the spa & pool area although to a lesser scale. It was probably just thoughtlessness by the staff and not malicious but I often felt embarrassed & uncomfortable. Not The kind of service I have experienced at other hotels. Probably needs better staff awareness training. Otherwise the stay was faultless as has been all other travelzoo deals I’ve experienced.

We had booked a room in the hotel for two nights as a treat to ourselves during our annual getaway (our only time during the year when we get to leave the 4 kids at home) On arrival we were told we had been given an "upgrade" to an apartment...however due to the fact that the apartment was not in the hotel, nor was it just a room that we had been wanting, this completely destroyed the atmosphere of our getaway and left us feeling let down/disappointed. We had been looking forward to our time in the hotel as we only get this luxury once a year, and when this booking was not honoured, it certainly didn't feel like the upgrade it was meant to be.

The first room we were offered was a health and safety nightmare, is was very small with an open staircase to the room door only a meter from the side of the bed. We did request another room and got on immediately. The furniture in the conservatory was filthy with unknown stains. The Maitre D took our lunch order of two rounds of sandwich’s and for £17 I would have expected the table to have been cleaned. Seriously overpriced in my opinion.
