History of The Regent
From a private sea captain's residence, The Regent was converted to a hotel in 1926 by the well known local architect Frank Nicholls and been running continuously as such ever since.
The hotel was the meeting place of St Ives Rotary Club until the commencement of hostilities. During the war the hotel was first of all the co-ordinating centre for the coastal gunnery around the Western Approaches. Later to be taken over by the American General Omar Bradley for his G.H.Q and over the door the sign read 134th U.S. Infantry and a large curved sign board over the main entrance door proclaimed "All Hell Can't Stop Us".
After the war the hotel continued as a small family run hotel and ever since that time visitors have been enthralled by the views from most of the rooms in the building.
