Spend an afternoon exploring the local area and you'll see that there are delights to discover around almost every corner. A wealth of interesting independent shops, cafes and artists' studios line the streets leading down to the town's ancient harbour, where you can still watch the local fishing boats unloading their catch at high tide.
Take a boat trip out to Seal Island to watch the Atlantic Grey seals lounging on the rocks
and enjoy fantastic views of the coast and Godrevy Lighthouse, or try your hand at fishing on a traditional Cornish lugger.
And of course, there's the art. The Tate St Ives art gallery
- the flagship of Cornish art - and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Gardens
, together with a plethora of small independent galleries, are all within easy walking distance of the hotel.
