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

Evelyn is a wonderful host and takes pride in her lovely B&B. My sisters and I took some time out of our hectic lives and headed down to the coast of St Ives, a wonderful place to relax and unwind. As soon as we arrived, Evelyn made us feel so comfortable and welcome. The place was spotless with a lovely... More

We have just returned from our first (and definitely not our last) visit to Rathlena. We have already decided/started looking to book Rathlena again. The room was absolutely gorgeous with everything you would possibly want. We had sea views on two sides and a slipper bath to relax in. There is a mini fridge, iron and mini ironing board so...

We stayed at Rathlena for three nights in August and left very reluctantly with nothing but the highest praise. The house itself is very pretty and well located with the additional benefit of plentiful off-street parking - a luxurious rarity in St Ives! Our room was spacious with a powerful shower, exceptionally comfortable bed and charming outside terrace looking out... More

What a stay! This was our second visit to St Ives. Evelyn, could not have made us more welcome and more comfortable. The house is second to none, with lovely views and sheer tranquility. Breakkie can not be beaten, Evelyn far exceeds most 5* hotels. Perfection on a plate. The rooms are spotless and our bed was so comfortable. We... More

My husband and I were in England from New York. We found Rathlena through booking.com. It truly did live up to the expectations. Evelyn and her family could not have been nicer from the first moment on. The room was beautiful: nice bed, roof terrace with amazing view, spotless bathroom. The food was amazing: everything from full English breakfast to... More
