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 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

I'm not one from writing reviews but my experience was so good I felt I had to. I've just finished a 6 night stay with Lynn and John and was made to feel very welcome and at home. I stayed in room 3 and it was excellent. Very clean and comfortable. There is a stunning view across St Ives, including... More

We had a wonderful stay at 3 Porthminster earlier this month. The B&B is very handily situated just before the streets start to get prohibitively narrow - there is also parking space for three vehicles outside. The centre of St. Ives is a 3-5 minute walk away. We stayed in Room 1 which is the largest at 3 Porthminster. It... More
