I made a very last minute booking and Cheryl was most helpful, when we arrived late she even lent me a pound for the bus as I had no change! Ken and Cheryl genuinely care about their guests and ensure they make your stay the best it can possibly be. The guesthouse has a very interesting history and is so... More

Much truth as been said in recent previous reviews so we don't want to repeat to much. The place is a winner,we met friendly folk there and the hosts kept our travel home... More

This is a beautiful B&B which is warm, friendly and cosy. Ken and Cheryl who own The Old Count House are lovely people who go beyond their duties to ensure you enjoy your stay. The breakfast is delicious, the beds are extremely comfy and the rooms are spotlessly clean! The centre of St Ives is a short walk away which... More

We stayed at Wheal Trenwith, the holiday apartment & received fantastic customer service right from the start. Ken & Cheryl were so helpful, friendly & warm & the apartment was lovely & brilliant value. The cream tea on arrival just added to the great service - thanks so much x

What a nice place to stay while in St Ives! The Old Count House is managed by a friendly couple doing their best to make you feel welcome. The sea view from my room certainly added value. Close to almost everything, beach and shops within a few minutes walk. Breakfast very good and quite a few possibilities. If they add... More

The hotel is excellent: impeccably clean and comfortable. The rooms are big and many have sea view. The breakfast is simply perfect. The cost is totally fair. The owners are kind and friendly. We would definitely stay there again!

My fiance and I adore St Ives and decided to return to The Old Count House for the second year running, after a brilliant first stay. We were not disappointed! Cheryl and Ken greeted us like old friends, and the place now feels like a home from home. We had a very comfortable room with a good hot shower and... More

We stayed 5 days at The Old Count House, our room was very clean and the bed was so comfortable. The breakfasts were great with plenty of home cooked dishes to choose from. Our hosts Ken and Cheryl were very friendly, they have a great home we will definitely stay again.

A very good stay. The location was great, even though the walk to the town centre was easier going down than returning uphill. Good to share the history of The Count House and observe the old photos. Very welcoming and helpful hosts with good local knowledge. The room was small, adequate but the bed was not the most comfortable. We... More
