“A lovely friendly atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble”  Mrs D Walker

The exterior of Chy Morvah with gardens in frontRed, white and blue logo with four starsChy Morvah, meaning “house by the sea” in Cornish, is certainly an appropriate name for this characteristic seaside hotel. From the panoramic lounge and dining room, the view stretches across the golden sands of St Ives Bay to the lighthouse at Godrevy Point. There are 40 bedrooms in the main house or adjacent Lanyons House, plus a heated outdoor pool in the mature gardens. A short stroll will take you down to the bustling centre of St Ives, a delightful town with art galleries, a colourful harbour and glorious sandy beaches.
