We had room 2 allocated on the ground floor outside with separate entrance. Lovely cosy hideaway very convenient to downtown St Ives. Staff friendly,nothing too much trouble, all our needs were met. Own reserved parking which is a bonus. Good breakfast with local produce. We will return.

Just had a wonderful 3 night stay at this little treasure of a b&b. We stayed in room 4 the smaller of rooms, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The separate shower room is across the very small landing, sole use for this room which was no problem probably making this the biggest room in this quaint cottage. The owner was... More

This is a perfect B&B for easy access to the harbour beaches trips etc. We stayed with Chris on our first trip here who is a hard act to follow but Danielle, Mary, Jane and Caitlin (and not forgetting little Ellie) who made our visit as equally a pleasure. They are perfect hosts food was always hot and more than... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in August. The room was really comfy and great value in high season. Staff were friendly and helpful. Delicious breakfast with lots of options. This B&B is great for couples and friends. Maybe not great for late risers as breakfast finishes at 9.15! But as its a very small B&B this is to be expected.... More

Excellent stay. Spotlessly clean. Danielle and Jane perfect hosts. Breakfast high quality. Arrived by train along the coast from St. Erth. No need for a car. Will definitely return Central location near the harbour. Good quality restaurants nearby.

Just spent two nights in St. Ives. Danielle is a wonderful hostess - full of great advice. The building itself is historic - this the "mind your head" plaque above the staircase. You park in a car park and walk to the B&B - the cobblestone streets are extremely narrow and charming. Don't make the mistake of trying to drive... More

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner, Danielle who is very friendly and helpful. We were showed to our room (number 1) which had an en-suite and was very clean and tidy. It also had a lovely view of the beach. The stairs to number one are quite steep... More
