The hotel is at the end of St Ives which is closest to the G7 Summit venue resort of Carbis Bay, located roughly a mile away.
World leaders are set to meet in Cornwall in a couple of months as the UK hosts the G7 summit.

With hotels almost entirely booked out in a 30-mile radius of the summit, MailOnline reports that 400 members of the US Secret Service, as well as other staff, have hired huge motorhomes to stay in.
