Made extremely welcome in this boutique style B&B. Very comfortable bed, lovely linen and all necessary accessories. Splendid breakfast!!! (Try the home made compote with your yoghurt). Excellent views from the room we occupied and a pleasant stroll to two bays. Hosts very friendly and ccomodating

Came down for New Years. John and Lynn were very welcoming and gave more than just a bed and breakfast. We were in the top room which looked over the harbour, stunning view. Rooms were lovely, clean and tidy. The breakfasts were delicious and cooked to perfection. They were happy to help with any queries. Will be looking at staying... More

We had a lovely stay over New Year. It's in a perfect location in one of the terraces above the town, just far enough away to be quiet and close enough to make it easy to enjoy the beaches, pubs and shops. We enjoys walking along the beaches and around 'the Island', visiting the Tate and browsing the shops and... More

Lovely stay at Porthminster. The rooms are clean, bright and airy and the beds are so comfortable! Best nights sleep we've had in months! Our room was at the top of the house and we had a beautiful view down to St Ives harbour. We could have stood and stared all day. Walk into town takes about 5 minutes so... More

A B&B in a period property which has been recently modernised. It's a charming B&B run by two friendly and welcoming people. The largest room has a lovely sea view towards Carbis Bay, Hayle and Gwithian. In addition the B&B has parking space and is within a short walk to St Ives town, the railway station and the beach. It... More

I stayed for one night only but would have been delighted to stay longer. John and Lynn's package offers excellent value - immaculate room and bathroom, comfortable bed, lovely breakfast and a warm welcome.

Our room was very tastefully decorated,very comfortable,spotlessly clean and had a great view of the harbour. The station,buses,town... More

Our stay at 3 Porthminster was short and sweet. After successfully getting drenched in a soggy tent up town, John and Lynn's welcoming sea view twin room was nothing but sublime. A perfect breakfast in a perfect location with lovely hosts..you'd be silly not to stay here.

Lynn and John were friendly and welcoming. The b&b was in a great location - walking distance to everywhere in St Ives, with a fantastic view of the harbour from our room. Our room was spotlessly clean, comfy and nicely decorated (with a great shower). The breakfasts were really tasty, with a choice of cereal and fruit to start and... More

I would definitely recommend 3 Porthminster. Lynn and John are the perfect host and hostess. The famous "John" breakfast was huge and delicious. The bedroom was spotless and was cleaned every day. Thank you both for making me very welcome. Chrissy Miklaszewska
