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

The location is excellent.....just a few minutes walk from the harbour , shopping and restaurants.

Friends and I had 5 nights in January and we were warm and cosy in our clean and comfortable rooms. It will definitely be my first choice if... More

Another lovely holiday, staying with Chris at The Anchorage, on Bunkers Hill, St Ives, which is in a very central and convenient location. Chris is a great host - we had Room 3 which is exceptionally comfortable, and Chris always provides superb breakfasts. Thank you so much Chris for making our stay so enjoyable - hope to see you again... More
