We spent 6 nights at this lovely B&B recently and knew immediately upon arrival that it was going to be special. Lynn and John were very friendly and welcoming and our room (Room 3) really had the wow factor. Not only was it spotlessly clean, it was very stylishly decorated and had the most wonderful view across St Ives to... More

I stayed for one night prior to a week's holiday in St Ives. I arrived late but was made welcome by Lynn. The room was perfect with a glorious view of St Ives. Breakfast was superb and taken in a relaxed atmosphere. I would thoroughly recommend 3 Porthminster to anyone.

We stayed at 3 Porthminster for two nights in June. The room was very clean and nicely decorated and the breakfast was very good. We were welcomed by John and Lynn who were very friendly and fantastic hosts during our stay. The B&B is close to the town and close to Porthminster beach which makes it a great location. We... More

My partner Alison and I were lucky enough to stay for 7 nights with Lynn and John at their stylish B&B in St Ives in July. We both knew as soon as we'd arrived that we'd made a great choice and that comfortable, relaxing feeling about the place never left us at any point during the week. Lynn and John... More

Lynn and John made us feel so welcome. Our room was light airy and well equipped. 4 minutes to Porthminster beach and 5 minutes into town.We chose 3 Porthminster because we could park on the front of the property a bonus in St Ives.Would certainly recommend to friends.

We, my sister and I stayed in number 3 Porthminster for three nights, and it was perfect. The room was absolutely spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated. Lynn and John couldn't be better hosts, there was nothing they wouldn't do to accommodate us. Thier home is bright and welcoming with a lovely little patio area in the front to enjoy... More

My boyfriend and I stayed 3 nights at this B&B and have no regrets whatsoever. It was just perfect! We had researched other hotels and B&B in the area and found 3 Porthminster more appealing. I must say that we were really happy with this choice and have already recommended it to our friends visiting St Ives soon. The view... More

We have just spent 6 nights in this very nice, clean and well run B&B. We researched a wide variety of accommodation in St Ives and were very pleased with our final choice, and we were also happy with what we paid, as you can pay an awful lot for places to stay in this beautiful little town. Our room... More

We booked this B&B at short notice and we had a great surprise with not only the standard and cleanliness of the accommodation, but also the helpfulness from the owners. This was shown when on our arrival we had to drop off our equipment to our work location and John (the owner)very kindly offered to pick us up which he... More

Just spent a couple of nights at this wonderful B&B. It is everything you look for in a B&B. Spotlessly clean, comfy bed, good breakfasts and lovely hosts in John and Lynn. It's a short walk to the beach or into town, an ideal location. Looking forward to next year already.
