My wife and I stayed here with friends a couple of weeks ago and it was fantastic with a lot of character and atmosphere together with all the modern requirements of life. Tim was a great host and we all started the day with one of his Cornish breakfasts - don't miss it. I first sampled the pub on the... More

We've just come back from a great weekend in St Ives and stayed at the Cornerways guest house. Tim was most welcoming and our room was fabulous, with fantastic views. It is very stylish, traditional mixed with modern and some very interesting art pieces. Breakfast was also excellent and the bed extremely comfortable. Highly recommended and we will be back.

Myself and my wife and our fiends stayed here for 3 nights and I can say that everything was superb. The owner goes out of his way to make sure you are comfortable including helping with parking arrangements. Our room (Sandra) and our friend's room (Rebecca) were both top notch and cleaned everyday. Very comfy, bed, tv, fridge, plenty of... More

We booked this as we wanted to spend a few days in the centre of the old part of st Ives. Despite the the weather we had a great time, accommodation in the Sandra room and habour views were fantastic. Breakfast was great and what a lovely B&B we were well chuffed. Stay here I recommend it

Tim Tait is a perfect host! Cornerways is a great location in charming St. Ives. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfasts were extraordinary. Tim was friendly and attentive to our every need and an incredible cook besides! We would return in a minute and highly recommend Cornerways!

A tiny cottage with some steep tiny stairs, but leading to a beautiful room, lovely bathroom and a view over the rooftops to the harbour. Lovely warm welcome, Tim was really helpful and a generous host. It would have been useful to have an email confirming my booking!

My wife and I have been visiting St. Ives for many years. I will guarantee that you will not be able to find a better location, very clean and friendly place to stay than "Corneraways" The breakfast choice is fantastic including the good old English to Salmon and Haddock. We would like to thank Tim very much for a unforgettable... More

From the hanging baskets and the lovely entryway to the unique decor of the room, everything was, once again, just wonderful. The spread for breakfast caters to all tastes with a variety of cereals, yoghurt, jams, and a fried selection, frequently including a fish option. Simply delicious. We were greeted by Tim as returning friends, and the hospitality at Cornerways... More

We had stayed the previous week in St Ives and wanted to extend our stay a little longer over the following weekend. We had spotted Cornerways earlier and thought what a pretty place it looked, so we popped inside and met Tim to ask about accommodation. He mentioned he had a room available, with ensuite and sea view (it was... More

My grandson, wife and I stayed one night last weekend and were made to feel very welcome. Tim was very accommodating and breakfast was good and particularly well presented. Slight minus point was that the fridge mentioned for the room was missing and had we been staying longer this would have been a major problem. Certainly stay again and would... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Spend your holidays with us in Downalong, a labyrinth of cobbled lanes which used to be the fisherman's quarter in the oldest part of St Ives. Cornerways was built in the 1830s and has been a Guest House for over 70 years. Only 50 yards from the harbour, beaches and restaurants, Daphne Du Maurier stayed here in the 1940's. The Tate Gallery, for which we provide complimentary tickets, and St Ives Art School are only 150 yards away. Two of our rooms overlook the harbour and bay beyond. With a modern feel that echoes the artists’ quarter in which it sits, Cornerways’ rooms have been renovated and totally redecorated over the last 7 years and all have new en-suites. All bedrooms have LCD TVs, DVD Players, Wi-Fi, tea and coffee facilities, fridges and complimentary Cornish bottled water. The 3' thick Cornish Granite walls and no passing traffic will ensure you a snug & quiet night’s sleep.Breakfast is served in the uncrowded dining room with only fresh produce being used. We also cater for vegetarians. Fresh local fish is available daily, which includes smoked salmon, local mackerel, kippers and smoked haddock. Tim & Shelley ... more   less
