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

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

Quirky eighteenth century house in great location, right in the centre of St Ives. Nice decor, very clean, great breakfast and an extremely considerate host - Chris. Can't recommend this place highly enough!

My husband and I have just returned from a three night stay at The Anchorage. Firstly, we were blessed with the warmest temperatures of the year so far! More importantly, we were very impressed with The Anchorage. It is right in the heart of St Ives so easy for popping in and out to the beach, harbour, shops, restaurants and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and the location, décor and service were first class. It looks small from the outside but the room we stayed in was very spacious. The only down side is the sound from the gulls at 6 in the morning. However, I like this. My wife was none to keen!
