I'm a difficult one to please, being the hotel trade for over 25 years, so I'm heartened when I find accommodation being delivered at the very best. This was my first trip to St Ives for over 30 years and I'd been reccommended Salt House by friends - I wasn't disappointed. The two rooms at this B&B are faultless -... More

We had a marvellous stay at the Salt House, with excellent views across St Ives Bay. The room had a superb designed interior (we stayed in the South Room) and in addition we were greeted so warmly and felt welcome the whole time. We were served breakfast in our room at a time of our choice and it was wonderful,... More

Salt House is a beautiful place to stay. We took a weekend trip here in early December. The North room has a fantastic view over the bay. The decor is very tasteful and complements the scenery perfectly. The bathroom is huge and has a walk in shower and a big bath. It's just a short walk down to St Ives... More

Just got back from a 3-day break with my wife, staying in the South Room. We'd heard lots of really good things about Salt House so arrived with high expectations - all of which we're met. It was fantastic. The house itself is beautiful and our room was extremely well-appointed and to an exceptional standard. Then there are the incredible... More
