What a fantastic B&B and what a fantastic couple are Trish and Michael. Nothing was too much trouble from individually prepared breakfasts using local ingredients, to spot on advice about places to go, to eat, to drink, things to do. We only had two nights there but wished we could have stayed longer. Trish and Michael are the perfect hosts,... More

Super friendly. Individualised full English breakfasts. Home grown fruit! Family run and very helpful and welcoming. WARNING: satnav is not helpful. Arrive after 6 or park out and walk in to get directions. Expect to drive on harbour front.

Feels like going in to your favourite relative's house. Classic decor, beautifully clean and comfortable rooms, Trish and Michael who run the place treat you like a friend but respect your privacy. Less than 5 minutes from the sea. Amazing breakfasts like your nan used to make. Don't be lured in by the boujis Wimbeldon-on-sea places elsewhere in town...

We have just returned from a great 3 night stay in St Ives at the Downlong Cottage. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and made sure we felt comfortable throughout our stay. Our room was very clean and comfortable and breakfast was good! Would defiantly stay at this lovely B and B again!

Nothing was too much trouble for Trish and Mike. They really work hard to ensure you have a great time. Weather was mixed for the long weekend we were there, sunshine two days and rain one day but lots to do. Location is really fabulous but not noisy at night .

We struggled to find a B and B at the last minute and my wife gave Trisha and Michael a call as a last attempt. They had a room so we took it for one night and were not too bothered what it was like as it was last minute. However, it could not have turned out better. Lovely B... More

Let me start off by saying that I totally loved St Ives, and my accommodation just made it all the better. It feels good to come home to a nice place after a day of walking around and people watching. The communication between me and Michael (B&B owner) was brilliant from the start, prompt email responses, all queries answered. They,... More

I was vey pleased about spending two nights in this lovely bed&breakfast. Trish and Michael made us feel very welcomed. Service with a genuine smile. Rooms are very pretty and bathrooms are extremely clean. Comfortable bed for a great sleep. Located on a quite street, but a minute walk from a lively embankment with lots of shops and restaurants. Good... More
