- "A beautiful old building, well maintained and cared for, lovely gardens, pool and views, inside was modern and elegant. The service throughout our stay from all the staff was top class. Our room was modern with every amenity. Breakfast was delicious at every meal and so well presented. A wonderful hotel in a wonderful setting with views over the bay - hopefully we will return one day and in the meantime will recommend to everyone."
- "Am always on the search for bed and breakfasts in Bexhill and think I’ve found the champion. Obviously the location plays a big part, but the rest of the facilities really add up to an excellent experience. Staff were, for me, a personal highlight. So professional! Always very kind, in the way you don’t always get. Anyway, would certainly return."
- "Happy after spending a weekend in this hotel. The room was spacious, came with an en-suite and big windows. I did notice that some of the floorboard creak (especially at night) but the comfortable nature of the bed (and clean, fresh sheets) meant I slept very well. They have a restaurant, plus it’s not too far to walk into town."
- "It stayed at the Garrack with my fiancé and it was a great experience. They have very nice spa facilities and it was really nice to for a swim in the morning. It’s about a 10-15 minute walk into St Ives town centre and also close to the harbour. The staff were very efficient and friendly. Superb breakfasts, recommended."
