Having lived in St.ives previously, I knew we would want a hotel near the harbour to avoid the steep walks back every night, but not too near the harbour to be noisy. Skidden is perfect. We wanted oak beams, quaint character; got it. The doors squeak, and the floors.. but it is 16th century! We had room 6, 4-poster, very... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Skidden House. The historic hotel is located moments from the harbour, beaches, shops and pubs. It is definitely on a steep incline, as mentioned by another reviewer, but I think everything in St. Ives is on either an incline or decline. I have arthritis in me knees, and managed just fine....

There is the good and not-so-good to report from my stay at Skidden House Hotel in early June, 2009. The more positive aspects included the welcome and treatment I received from the ever-smiling, friendly, approachable, hugable, energetic, Marianne Faithful look-alike manager Terri, who went out of her way, during her long working hours, to make sure my eleven-day stay there...

I stayed for two nights in May with my wife and 16month old daughter. The hotel is located on a narrow street close to the harbour and is thus well located. The car park is small and worth checking for availability in advance, but remains a big asset in St Ives, as parking is difficult. I concur with an earlier... More
