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

Couldn't fault anything. Superb location,hosts,room,breakfast and facilities. We stayed for 2 nights and had a wonderful weekend. Situated in the heart of St Ives this b&b is so quaint and quirky with beautifuly decorated and furnished rooms. The owners were so freindly and helpful. Would definitely recommend and return. Best b&b breakfast and shower we have sampled!!!

We stayed here for a couple of nights just before Easter and had a wonderful time. The location is perfect, mere minutes to both the town and Porthmeor beech. The accommodation is brilliant, super comfortable bed, powerful shower, very clean and the little touches are perfect. Breakfast is served at a time of your suiting and was delicious and plentiful.... More

It is always a pleasure to receive an extremely friendly welcome with professionalism knowing your are going to get the best service and accommodation.

We stayed during the end of February 2015, and it could not have been better! Carol and Mike are absolutely wonderful people (especially considering we didn't use the front door when we arrived and walked through their home, rather than the B&B). The accommodation is beautiful, very well thought out, stylish and so, so comfortable! The breakfasts are amazing (especially... More

I spent 5 nights over New Year in The Keep (again!) and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The warmth of the welcome and the quality of the service provided can't be matched - and all at such fantastic value! Would strongly recommend to anyone and the location can't be beat. This is THE place to stay in St Ives!
