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!

The Anchorage is in a perfect location right in the heart of St Ives. I stayed in the winter so crowds were not a problem. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The stairs to Room 1 are steep but manageable and worth it for the view. Chris is an excellent host and very helpful with information and local knowledge.... More

Loved this place, it was everything we hoped it would be and more. Cosy, central to everything in the town, a lovely breakfast and spotlessly clean. And a marvellous host to look after everything. Thank you so much.

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights over the August Bank Holiday weekend and very much enjoyed our stay. Located on a cobbled street with lovely flowers covering the exterior, tourists were regularly taking photos of this picture perfect street. Shops, restaurants, the harbor and beaches are literally on this B&B's doorstep. The owner, Chris, helped us with... More
