We booked to stay 3 nights in Shun Lee House at the beginning of August. We flew over from Los Angeles and hadn't been to St Ives before. From the moment we arrived and got out of the car, we were very happy to have booked this place. Although we had read the reviews, there is nothing like the view... More

We booked our August stay at Shun Lee House back in January this year after reading some of the many reviews on this website. We have been abroad twice this year to two entirely different styles of five star hotel, both of which were excellent, but without hesitation or exaggeration them the Shun Lee was better than both. From the... More

I have stayed in many leading hotels in the world but none beats this. The Shun Lee is superb. Terry and Paul go out of their way to ensure guests have the perfect stay. The room was immaculate, the sea views perfect, the location ideal, for the most relaxing break ever! Breakfasts were sumptuous , nothing was too much trouble.... More

Always a pleasure to return to see Paul and Terry. You may pay at the end of your stay but you always leave feeling you've just spent time with friends. Nothing is too much trouble. Undoubtably the place to stay if you're ever in St Ives, you will not be dissapointed.

Small is beautiful! The setting, the furnishing and the unfussy but attentive hospitality make Shun Lee House the perfect venue for quiet relaxation. Paul and Terry are perfect hosts with first rate local knowledge and connections. We cannot overstate how much we enjoyed our stay with you.

We had the opportunity to stay three nights at Shun Lee House. The reception and hospitality offered by Terry and Paul was superb and our room was spacious, well appointed and the view over the water to St Ives was fabulous. The location is handy as you can walk into St Ives in about 10 minutes which we did several... More

I have not been able to get down to St. Ives and Shun Lee for a while but the reception I received from Terry and Paul was so warm. As before, I was looked after very professionally and my room, the 'Raffles' Suite, was as welcoming and spotless as always. The bed has to be the most comfortable I have... More

Just returned from yet another wonderful stay at Shunlee. I think it must have been the coldest days St.Ives had ever experienced, but the welcome was warm and so was the house, breakfast as ever delicious and so much choice. Thanks again boys keep up the good work. Peter Folkestone

My husband and I stayed with Paul and Terry when we visited St Ives because of the wonderful reviews we read on Tripadvisor. We were in no way disappointed. They were the warmest of hosts and from the moment we met them we felt at home. The room was spotlessly clean with every amenity thought of. A lovely vase of... More
