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.

We've met the best hosts, very caring, which we very much appreciated. Centrally located, a few minutes walk to the waterfront of St. Yves. Very well maintained, clean and designed with great attention to detail. Even a car park was made available for us. Thank you Lynn and John for your warm welcome.
