Lovely hotel, food & staff

Reviewed 25 november, 2021

Booked a 2 night stay originally for April 2020 but was rescheduled 3 times due to the pandemic. We finally got to stay here & it was well worth the wait. Our room on the top floor overlooked the bay & was lovely and comfortable with all the usual ammenities. We ate in the restaurant both evenings as well as having breakfast there and the food was absolutely superb, good range of choices, well sized portions & beautifully cooked/presented. All of the staff were very helpful with nothing being too much to ask. A very pleasant break - hope we will come back again but in the meantime, would definately recommend it.

If it’s good enough for G7

Reviewed 15 november, 2021

We originally booked the Gannet through Travelzoo in February 2020. This booking was then cancelled 3 times because of Covid but last week we finally got to stay at this beautiful hotel. From the moment we arrived to the time we left we were treated so well by every staff member from Reception, Bar Staff, Waiting and Cleaning. All staff were friendly and happy to engage in conversation and to tell us their stories of when the G7 came to Carbis Bay. My husband and I are local to the area so it was interesting to hear first hand from the staff how it impacted on them. The cocktails, evening meal and breakfast were perfect and thoroughly enjoyable. The rooms are immaculately presented and comfortable. We used the spa facilities at The Carbis Bay Hotel which are free to use if you stay at the Gannet. Amazing facilities and if they were good enough for Boris they were certainly good enough for my husband and I. Once again all staff encountered were beyond helpful and friendly. We swam in the outdoor pool which was a very pleasant 29 degrees, relaxed in the jacuzzi at an even better 40 degrees and sat in the sauna overlooking the bay taking in the view. We were only away for one night but came away feeling that we had been away for a week. Thoroughly recommended and can’t wait to return.

3rd time lucky

Reviewed 13 november, 2021

Came with my daughter after changing the booking due to my husbands ill health. Reception staff friendly and very helpful with the change. Stayed in a quirky room which was nicely furnished and comfortable. Spotlessly clean. Great lounge area to while away the time and enjoy some pre dinner drinks. Fabulous meal - this was one of the best meals I've had out for a long time, really tasty and the fish was so fresh and delicious. Fantastic breakfast the following morning too. A really nice ambience to the whole place. Have stayed at Carbis Bay Hotel before but actually preferred it here and would definitely return.

So disappointed

Reviewed 11 november, 2021

Booked nearly 2 years ago & was finally looking forward to staying here as part of a weekend in St Ives. Booked through secret escapes & I don’t know if that influenced things. I booked to stay in a quirky room at the Gannet inn. On arrival we were lead back down the road to another building which is fronted by a pub & a salon. Down past the toilets on the ground floor was our room Cloverleaf. This room is made of 3 parts which were modern & nicely decorated. Now anyone walking past can tell this as you’re on street level & 2 large windows look out onto a small enclave with passers by rubbish & a staggered fence to try & hide you. Pictures added. This means you spend your time in the room with the curtains permanently closed, especially when lying in bed. The other problem is it’s very hot in there & as there’s no air conditioning, you have to open the windows. This made it impossible to sleep. Either too hot or risk somebody coming in through the window. Now to dinner. A Short walk in the drizzle back up to the hotel to the restaurant. Not ideal. Followed by a pretty bland tasting meal. The highlights for both of us were the starters & it went downhill after that. Maybe it’s what we ordered, chicken Kiev for my wife & the surf & turf for me. But my fillet steak lacked flavour & juice & the fondant potato underneath was just a dry boiled potato. The langoustine is pretty pointless as they’re painful to break open for little meat & with no finger bowl, you have to disappear to the toilet to wash your hands before continuing. Deserts again not great. I guess the room made me feel like a second class citizen at the hotel & it never seemed to get better until we spent the morning down at the Carbis bay spa. That part was very nice & I can’t fault the reception girls as they were polite & friendly. For the cost of the rooms & the food, I’ve stayed in much nicer & cheaper places. As I said at the beginning, I’m just so disappointed as I was really looking forward to staying here. That’s probably made the whole experience seem worse. Though I’m not sure as it probably was.
