Very warm welcome here at 3 Portminster. Beautiful room and absolutely wonderful breakfast. Lovely views over St Ives bay and we had a really relaxing break. Thank you Lynn and John for your hospitality.

We have stayed at several B and Bs in England and elsewhere over several years and this would be one of the best. We really appreciated Lynn's warm welcome and John's breakfasts but we also appreciated the view from Room 3. Superb! Our room was very clean and well presented, and we felt comfortable. We recommend 3 Porthminster highly.

Email communication prior to the stay was very quick and helpful which made the decision to book easy. John and and Lynn were very welcoming. Absolutely beautiful, characterful, well decorated house. We stayed only one night for a child-free break and loved the relaxing wander into town (and back after a few beverages!) which is literally 2 minutes away, so... More

This is a great B&B both homely, modern and clean. The location is perfect and the view second to none. And to top it all off the breakfast was DELICIOUS! John & Lynn were incredibly welcoming, friendly and helpful. I will defiantly go back to this little gem!

A really great B&B, we were totally comfortable and made very welcome. The owners made sure all our needs were met and helped us with some local tips as well. Would definitely recommend. Our room had a beautiful view of the sea and the place itself is within easy walking distance of the beaches and town.

Best views in St Ives! Lovely welcoming b&b with beautiful and stylish decor, fully equipped rooms and helpful hosts! Extremely comfortable bed with the most incredible view St Ives harbour! Breakfast was delicious and full of lovely touches such as homemade compote and a chalk board with the days weather! Would (and already have) recommend to others! We'll definitely be... More

Perfect 3 night stay at the beginning of Easter school holidays. Beautiful room with the most comfortable bed that I've ever slept in. John & Lynn very welcoming and John cooks a mean breakfast. If only I could replica the poached eggs....... Wouldn't return to Cornwall without a return visit. Loved it.

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
