In most respects this is a perfect B&B. All the basics are excellent and the view from our room was truly stunning. The bed was comfortable (if a bit small) and the shower worked well. The breakfast was great - although if you want a cooked breakfast (we didn't) you have to give notice and it costs extra. The parking... More

I have have just spent a lovely weekend at this beautiful guest house. The landlady, Alexina is a credit to her profession. People who have met her will know what I mean. The guest house is spotlessly clean and is in a fantastic position overlooking the harbour of St Ives. The rooms are exactly what a good guest house should... More

We love staying in b&bs when visiting Cornwall. We stayed in the top room with the most amazing views over st Ives. The room and bathroom were clean, light and airy as well as a good size. The location is great just a couple of minutes walk from the beach and town centre. The car parking is great benefit and... More

Very nice clean and comfortable boutique hotel with free parking and stunning views, we was lucky enough to see dolphins playing from our bedroom window which was amazing. The only downside was the breakfast, we had a allocated time slot for breakfast, a choice of first or second shift, we chose the second and the cooked breakfast was served Luke... More

Firstly some positive points . The bed was very comfy and the views were amazing. Unfortunately the window was so filthy the view was hazy . The bathroom was a huge let down , the toilet seat was wonky and as a breeze hit the roller blind the whole thing came down on my head! Upon mentioning this to he... More

Have stayed at the Golden Hind several times over the years. Central location that includes parking - which is incredible for St Ives. The Golden Hind now offers a lovely twin room too - a great addition to our favourite guest house in Cornwall which used to only have single or doubles. New rooms are fresh and good standard with...

Approaching St.Ives from direction of Lands End is liable to produce a mental breakdown for both driver and Satnav so when a parking opportunity appeared near the foreshore "greater powers" must have been at work. Fate must have led to me knocking on the door of the Golden Hind and as soon as I was shown the room with that... More
