There was 10 of us (6 adults, 4 children) looking for a place to eat, we came across the Balnoon. They accommodated us, there was a games room for the children, the food and staff were great! i highly recommend visiting here.

Stayed there for three nights with my partner and child. I am well aware of the high prices of accommodation in the area, so found the price of the stay very reasonable. Found being asked to pay on arival while trying to sort bags and family out etc...can be a bit unsettling and unusual, as it is often nice to... More

It is a really lovely place to stay. Viv and Mike and all the staff who run it are very friendly, helpful and hospitable. The food is great. A lovely Carvery on Sunday, worth booking that even if you aren't a guest. If you are staying, the rooms are exceptionally good value. Nice and homely and comfortable and bright and... More

The Balnoon is in a lovely location-lots of fields with picturesque footpaths into St Ives. The hosts were great and happy to share their knowledge of the locality. I did a fantastic coastal walk from Lelant to Carbis Bay that I would never have found for myself. My plan was to meet a friend down in Cornwall but unfortunately she... More

Eveyone has to visit St Ives, at least once in their lives. What a really cool and crazy place. Every cottage stacked up on top of the next one, with extremely narrow lanes no car should ever attempt to navigate. DONT TRY IT!! The Balnoon is about three miles outside town and has a great car park, close to footpaths,... More
