Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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 this very coastline, and it has "unique interiors with all the style and finesse of a boutique hotel, while also offering a warm and friendly place to pop in for a catch up or a bite to eat" (The AA). The country-style property opened in 2015, and it is five minutes' drive from the art galleries and winding cobbled streets of St Ives.

You can walk to sister property Carbis Bay Hotel in less than 15 minutes and enjoy the leisure facilities for free -- including the hydrotherapy pool and sauna -- or take a dip in the heated outdoor pool before heading down to the privately owned Blue Flag beach below.

The Gannet Inn has a restaurant and a bar, and a lounge with a fireplace and leather armchairs. The bar also has a dartboard and a pool table. Breakfast is served daily from 7:30-10am.

Bedrooms are individually designed and soundproof, and feature neutral décor and bespoke furniture. Wi-Fi is free.

There is no lift and no handrails on some of the staircases so people with mobility issues will struggle. In fact this is an issue I will be pursuing with the local Building Control Officer.
