For our first visit to St. Ives we decided to stay at 3 Porthminster and what a fantastic choice we made! It was within easy walking distance to the town centre & the harbour. Lynn & John were great hosts who made us feel extremely welcome. John helped us with our bags and we were treated to tea and biscuits... More

A simply lovely place to stay in an amazing location. Our room was just perfect with thoughtful touches. We cannot recommend it enough. John and Lynne made us feel most welcome and John's breakfast is to die for. We will definitely be back.

This lil B&B is an absolute gem to say the least. John and Lynn made us feel right at home and their knowledge of the area was a massive added bonus and kept us busy viewing sites all the time. Thanks to the both of you for making our stay in St Ives memorable.

Our room, (n.3) on the top floor was quiet and comfortable with an amazing view of St. Ives. Great cooked breakfast! John's homemade compote is delicious too. The House has a free parking... More

We had a wonderful stay with Lynn and John at the 3 Porthminster B&B. The room was excellent - bright and clean with spectacular views of the harbour. The breakfast was delicious and all you could wish for. We will definitely return!

We stated in 3 Portminster for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. Lynn and John were so welcoming and friendly, ready to help with anything. Our room was very elegantly decorated, with a lot of space and light and views of the sea over the town. The bathroom was a touch on the small side but well equipped with a... More

I stayed at 3 Porthminster B&B for one night, but even only staying short, I had a nice time and felt very welcome. It was great to be able to only book one night as there are not many B&B´s who give a room for such a short stay in the high season. Lynn and John are very friendly and... More

We stayed two nights at 3 Porthminster and we could not find a better place. After spending a week in various B&B's in Cornwall we finally found our favourite. Definately the most beautiful City and for sure the best place to stay. Breakfast was simply first class, prepared with love and passion. We lived in room one, enjoying a spectacular... More
