  • We stayed here at the end of February 2016 for a mini break with our 6 month old son (we live in Devon so it was a last minute break).

    Our room was really big and we were delighted when we got a room overlooking the beautiful St Ives harbor. The room was so clean and staff had put cot in the room with bedding laid out on it already. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast the next day was wonderful. We really felt special and not just hotel guests. I would definitely recommend and we will be back again.

  • We just came back from a 4 night stay at the Chy An Albany and it was fantastic.

    Room was lovely it was spotlessly clean with a lovely sea view and we even got fresh tea and biscuits everyday. Staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful and breakfast was lovely in a beautiful room with stunning sea views. The hotel is ideally situated with just a short stroll to Porthminster beach and St Ives town.

    We will definitely return to this hotel in the future and highly recommend it.

  • This quaint hotel overlooking the bay in St Ives was perfect for a long weekend in Cornwall.

    We were on the top floor and the views of the bay were amazing. The room was small but cozy and with everything you needed, even a “walk in wardrobe”. The staff were delightful and the breakfast was the best I have had for a long time. Everything hot, tasty and good quality. There is also ample parking front and rear.

  • This was our first trip to St Ives and we stayed at Chy-An-Albany Hotel.

    What a fantastic location and experience and a short walk to the lovely beach. We also had the evening meal and it was fantastic. Will certainly return.
