What a lovely place to stay. The room was enormous, even had a settee in it. It was much bigger than some of the 4 star hotels we have stayed in. The breakfast was great and the proprietor was ready to cook any combination you wanted. I even had coddled egg which was a first. Can fully recommend this bed... More

A lovely place to stay with a large room and great breakfast. Evelyn cares for her guests and has thought of everything. It is hard if not impossible to take your car down to the town. Quite a hike back up the hill after dinner in St Ives but taxis are available. Would return even though this was the most... More

As a couple who normally stay in hotel accommdation, due to high ratings on Trip advisor we thought we would try Rathlena. What a great decision it proved to be, a cross between a quality B&B and a stop over at your favourite aunties! We stayed 3 nights and Evelyn and Tony could not have done more to make you... More

Stayed for 3 nights, slept very well in large comfortable room with a sea view, then enjoyed a great home cooked breakfast with warm croissants, pancakes etc. at a long table shared with 2 other couples. The house is in a nice quiet neighborhood not far from the Leisure Centre car park, which has a bus connection to the town... More

Stayed here in July for 4 nights and we had a fantastic time. The b&b is really well maintained and clean, from the lush gardens to the spotless bathrooms, Evelyn and her hubby Tony do a stellar job of making sure that all details are attended to. We had a large room with a balcony that looked out onto the... More
