We stayed in the Mermaid room for 3 nights. Carol and Mike are the most charming hosts! They make a wonderful breakfast and offer plenty of excellent advise when it comes to restaurants and activities. The location is perfect. Would definitely recommend!

We had a wonderful week's stay at The Keep in The Mermaid Room. Very comfortable, clean, individual, lots of lovely little touches from our hosts like chocolates on arrival and a rose in the shower room and bedroom! Great ensuite shower room. Breakfasts were very good with English breakfast or a daily special, or continental to chose from. Fresh fruit... More

Had a fab stay in the Pilchard Press room, large and comfortable and wonderful hosts Carol and Mike. A superb choice for breakfast each day. There is a communal area where we had breakfast with the guests from the other Bedroom. There is a small fridge there with Tea and coffee making facilities and somewhere for any drinks etc you...

We and another couple had The Keep to ourselves for 5 days since we booked both rooms. The Keep is wonderfully located a few blocks from Porthmeor beach and the coastal path which makes for great walks along the coast. It is also an easy walk to downtown St. Ives. Mike and Carol were wonderful hosts, welcoming us in the... More

It was an idyllic 3-day stay enjoying excellent breakfasts, tastefully decorated and comfortable accommodation perfectly positioned to enjoy St Ives' delights. Carol and Mike are perfect hosts providing all possible assistance to ensure a wonderful stay in the area. The Keep will be my first choice on return to St Ives.

We had a lovely two-night stay in the Pilchard Press room. Very comfortable, clean and stylish. The breakfasts were fantastic and Carol and Mike were the perfect hosts - very friendly and keen to help. Strongly recommend it and we would happily return ourselves.

The location is tucked away up a street that is moments from the heart of town. Our hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming, and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we could possibly need. When I fell ill around check out time, they made sure I was well taken care of and rested before continuing... More

This was my 7th visit and that speaks for itself ! There was the usual warm welcome, comfortable and sparkling clean room. Little details included the fresh flowers in the room, (a rose bud in the bathroom) and a "flask" of drinking water. In the shared area, fresh milk with tea/coffee etc and biscuits. Breakfasts as always superb. I can... More

We stayed at The Keep over New Years 2014. This I think, was our 5th stay at The Keep over the New Year celebrations. The Keep is a very clean, modern and comfortable place to stay made better still by the best hosts of a B&B we have ever met. Carol & Mike make you feel incredibly welcome ensuring your... More

We regularly holiday in St Ives and have tried various guest houses and Hotels but we thought we would try The Keep, based on other TA reviews. We were not disappointed! The building itself is a unique 16th Century conversion, perfectly positioned in the middle of town and all its amenities and a stones throw from the beaches, but you... More
