Trish and Mike are always on hand if you need anything , but achieve the holy grail of hosting by being on hand while at the same time making... More

The totally perfect St Ives experience - we loved staying in the fisherman's quarter and Downlong is the perfect location. The facilities are lovely, the room was great, the hosts were fabulous - nothing was too much trouble and we chatted like old friends form the minute we arrived. Thank you!

This is a lovely little B&B in the heart of Downalong just around the corner from the harbour. The rooms are beautifully presented and spotless with nice firm mattresses and a selection of pillows to suit all. The breakfast is cooked just as you like it and served with a welcoming smile and chat by Thish. I'd thoroughly recommend it.

We decided short notice to grab a weekend away and fortunately were able to secure a room at Downlong. The guest house is situated at the end of St Ives, just steps away from the harbour wall, and only minutes to the pubs and restaurants around the harbour. Our room was freshly decorated and the whole house spotlessly clean and... More

My friend and I stayed for two nights and the hosts Michael and Trish were fantastic. The cottage itself was in a great location and our room and bathroom very clean. On the downside the room was very small, as was the bathroom. As there was no guest sitting area, when we stayed in in the evenings, the only place... More
