Bay St Ives Bay Hotel
The St Ives Bay Hotel is the perfect base for exploring the picturesque seaside town of St Ives with its quaint harbour and award-winning Blue Flag beach. Set on the edge of the beach, guests can relax in the spacious open plan lounges and enjoy stunning views across the golden sands to the translucent waters of the Celtic Sea. This glittering backdrop, framed by waving palm trees, has a tropical feel that’s characteristic of St Ives, which benefits from one of the mildest climates in the UK.

Throughout the summer, the hotel’s Courtyard terrace is buzzing with conversation, laughter and light, as the hotel’s vocalists, comedians and entertainers take you late into the evening.
The Bay Hotel is located close to St Ives’ town and harbour, with plenty for guests to see and do in the vicinity. The narrow cobbled streets, plethora of independent shops and soft sands of the picture postcard beach can occupy hours of your time, with a host of delis, ice cream parlours, tea rooms, traditional fudge shops along the way to keep you refreshed.
With its eclectic mix of art galleries, festivals, shows and museums, St Ives enjoys a rich culture and undeniable natural beauty.
