The Olive Branch is wonderful! Not only was it in a great location near to the sea, the town centre and a whole host of restaurants it was both spotless and accommodating. Justin & Julie really put in maximum effort to ensure you have the best stay possible and as a result both myself and my girlfriend had a great... More

My partner and I have just returned from a long weekend at The Olive Branch and would 100% recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone. It is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The owners Julie and Justin were very helpful with weather updates, maps, directions and recommending places to eat. We stayed in room 3 which had a lovely comfortable... More

Thank you for your review, but I think you stayed with the previous owners of The Olive Branch. We took over June 10th 2013 and have no recollection of your stay. We hope we get the opportunity to meet you the next time you stay in St Ives. Kind regards Julie, Justin & George More

We have just recently returned from our second 7-night stay at The Olive Branch and if it were possible to give more than 5 stars for this lovely B&B we would. The rooms are extremely comfortable - spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. Justin and Julie are just so friendly and welcoming - nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts cooked... More

My wife and I stayed at The Olive Branch in July 2014, having chosen it out of a shortlist of five in January. Boy, did we make the right choice!

The Olive Branch is one of the best finds we have ever made - almost to the point of not wanting to let the rest of the world know about it (just in case we cant get booked in next time!) Julie, Justin and George are a perfect match for this beautiful house. John and I had a wonderful 7... More

Stayed here in May for 3 nights and can honestly say its the best B&B we have stayed in. Easy to find and lovely to be able to park with no problems and off the road. Just far enough away from the town centre but only a short walk. The property is spotlessly clean with very welcoming. Nothing is to... More
