We loved Jacks! We've stayed in a few properties in St. Ives and we reckon this was the best so far. Lovely décor and furnishings, trendy & chic, a warm & comfortable environment. The coal-effect gas fire is very cosy. A great location on Back Road East and you can unload the car a few yards away outside the Chapel. Even better, a one minute walk to The Sloop! We'd definitely stay again.

Mr Cashin

Perfect location close to shops and beach but not noisy. Really comfortable beds and everything you need for a relaxing time. Enabled us to really relax which made it hard to leave.
