I visited Cornwall with my husband on August Bank Holiday weekend this year. We booked 2 nights stay at Downlong Cottage B&B. We were nicely suprised, because it was so close to the St Ives centre and harbour- 5 minutes walk to the pubs, shops etc. There were no car park, because cottage is situated on the small alley, but...

Every morning we woke up to a lovely great quality breakfast. Michael and Trish are excellent hosts,... 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
