Felt like I was back in school

This must rank as the worst hotel I have stayed in. The owners are quite rude and have lots of rules. The place is not child or disability freindly and the carpark is small so you have to keep moving your car twice daily for others to get out. Our room was right in the roof but we could not open our window as a soil outlet tended to blow sewer smells in.Our friends had a room on the second floor and theirs was tiny and musty smelling. If they opened their window in the evening they got smoke blowing in as the outside smoking area for the bar was just below.Two evenings our friends tried to go to bed around 10.30pm due to early day trips but the bar stayed open until 1am and along with it the noise kept them awake. We did have ensuite bathrooms but the shower in both rooms was old and hard to get a temperature in between scalding and freezing. I did mention a couple of issues to the owner but was given short shrift so I will not waste my hard earned cash in the Longships hotel.

Throughout the stay the staff were brilliant with my residents that are disabled mentally and physically. The food was excellent, the rooms were spot on. We will be back

It did not feel like a holiday

Well the reviews are either excellent or terrible for this hotel which is odd. Personally I hated the hotel and agree with every negative comment concerning the hotel and owners. I stayed last year and it has taken that long to even think or write about the unfortunate experience.

We hated this place

Very rude owners make it plain you are staying in their house rather than a paying guest. Crazy half hour breakfast window,smelly tiny rooms. We had an en-suite bathroom but the shower was a joke(we did not have a bath) Oh and if you complain it is not warmly recieved. The owners seem to have some very old friends that visit annually(god knows why) but they appear to be the only welcome guests.The rooms have been carved up at some time so your room is small and you can hear all the activities of your neighbours so I assume the reverse is true.

Rude owners

This is the worst hotel i have ever stayed in. The owners are very miserable and rude. On arriving we were locked out as the elderly male owner was busy booking his friends in. My five year old child needed the toilet desperatly but we were told we had to wait.The family room was pokey and dirty and the breakfast was a laugh a minute and felt we were in a prison camp. We went for a drink into the empty bar and the atmosphere was awfull. We tried to make polite conversation with the owner but all we got was yes and no and were treated like we should not be there. The people who are giving positive comments about this establishment are obviously the owners friends or enjoy people being rude to them. whenever we went out we did not look forward to going back. This spoilt are holiday in the beautiful Town of st Ives.

Just reading the reviews and all I can say is WHAT A LOAD OF TOSH. Me and my family have been visiting the Long Ships Hotel for over 17 years and with our children for over 10 and every time we arrive we get greeted with warmth and friendliness from all who are involved in a fantastic family run hotel.
My children who are now 10 and 13 always look forward to having our holidays in St.Ives and get treated like part of the owners family.
We are unable to have our holidays at the Long Ships this year but will look forward to next year with loving people and friends, fantastic food and gorgeous sunny weather. I had a surprise 40th Birthday 2 years ago and it was fantastic.
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK .

Comfortable and Homely

We have stayed here many times over the past fifteen years. It is spotlessly clean, comfortable and welcoming. Our boys used to come when they were little and were always made very welcome. Clive, Olive and Staff are very friendly and helpful and are very knowledgeable about the local tourist attractions. We are going again for a weekend in May this year with another couple who have also stayed at the Longships before. We are so looking forward to it. Fabulous hotel, great value, great views. We thoroughly recommend it.

Terrible

I had a family reunion at the Longships and it was ruined by the miserable owners. No smile on arrival just a list of do's and dont's. Our room was a reasonable size but not very clean. The bathroom was functional. The breakfast is served from 8.30 to 9 and on the second morning due to baby issues we arrived at 9am to be told we were too late. There were lots of other issues, but I think you get the idea. I never looked forward so much to going home after this holiday.
