We chose 3 Porthminster due to its close location to town (short distance of a few minutes walk) and also the fact it was set back from the hustle and bustle of st. Ives. We spent three nights for our anniversary here, we found Lynn to be a fantastic hostess as she was always on hand to help and even... More

Stayed here last week and glad with the choice we made. My wife has a bad knee so not great for the walk up and down to town but we made it. It's not bad for the able and takes about 5 mins down and 8 or so back up. We had the smallest room, which was a twin but... More

We visited John and Lynn last year and was wowed by this lovely b&b, so much so we returned again this year taking our Daughter and Son-in-law who were as equally impressed. We stayed in room 1 which has the most amazing views. Highly recommended.

rooms were pretty and clean. the owners were kind enough to let us eat in the kitchen late at night and even lent us some dinnerware for our takeaway dinner. The location is really close to the beach but is also high enough on a hill which gave us amazing sunset and sunrise views. Breakfast was delicious and parking although... More

We stayed for four nights to explore the surrounding area and couldn't have been happier with our choice. We stayed in Room 1 which has a sofa looking out over the sea - a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. Our room had plenty of space and was extremely clean. The bed and pillows are good...

Absolutely brilliant little place to stay and get the best out of St.Ives. Had a lovely warm welcome and although we arrived early our room (3) was ready. Exceptionally clean throughout and everything you could need was there. Our room had the most beautiful view and would definitely recommend it. Was really impressed with the anniversary card left in our... More

Stayed at 3 Porthminster for 3 nights in June 2015. It was a great base for St Ives which was only an 8 minute walk down into the town, beaches and harbour. John and Lynn were great hosts and happy to advise on what to do in and around St Ives and made our trip to Land's End much better... More

This B and B is in a great location and includes a parking space - anyone who knows St Ives, will verify how valuable this is. The beds and rooms were great. Lynn and John were very friendly and helpful. There were a few areas that could be improved. The food was lovely and plentiful with freshly brewed coffee for... More

Lynn & John were very welcoming hosts for our honeymoon visit to St Ives. The location was fantastic and we had a very relaxing stay due to our gorgeous room and surroundings. We definitely look forwarding to returning here and to St Ives.
