Occupying a wonderful, elevated location overlooking St. Ives Bay, this award-winning hotel offers a host of modern comforts and stunning sea view rooms. The hotel offers comfortable en suite rooms, many with fabulous sea views. Chy-An-Albany provides an ideal base to explore St. Ives and its renowned Tate Gallery, as well as the quaint harbour side, cobbled streets and collection of beautiful beaches that have captivated artists and tourists for over a century. The hotel is also just a short walk from the train station at the bottom of the hill (approximately 3 minutes).
