Great location in the heart of the town. Lovely hosts in Carol & Mike and high quality modern accommodation in a traditional property. Excellent quality food for breakfast including a daily special. Perfect for our romantic break.

The location is literally in the centre, 2 minutes walk from anywhere, and it is such a find.......an old converted fisher mans style cottage....but bang up to date, with the best of everything, including...

Just got back from St Ives and our first stay at The Keep. The owners of this bed and breakfast made our visit. The accommodation was fantastic. But it was Carol and Mikes welcome that made it a truly wonderful experience. THANKYOU

Words can (nearly) not describe what a wonderful stay we had at The Keep. We stayed for one night in November to celebrate my birthday. Very easy to book, and we were even offered a parking space too (an absolute Godsend in St Ives...) The B&B itself is STUNNING - in a very central location, beautifully decorated with all mod...

Yet another perfect visit to our favourite home from home. As always a genuinely warm welcome from MIke and Carol. This time Mike had a tip for a secret beach in the Cot Valley. The room was as ever immaculately clean and comfortable with a Hello Again chocolate plaque to welcome us back again. The breakfasts were delicious- one of... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for a couple of days at The Keep and it was simply wonderful. The bedroom/bathroom was immaculate and very tastefully decorated. The breakfast was fantastic and there was plenty of choice - there's also a daily special (for example the Eggs Benedict was great). Likewise Mike and Carol (who run the place) were perfect hosts,...

The Keep is such a find i almost dont want to tell anyone else about it! The location is perfect for Porthmeor beach, the harbour and all the shops on Fore Street. Carol and Mike are the most perfect hosts. Very kind and extremely friendly. Breakfast was perfectly cooked with some lovely specials that my husband had on both mornings... More
