When we arrived at the train station in St. Ives, the owner Evelyn met us and took us to the B&B. My first impression was that is was a beautiful home set back in a nice quiet neighborhood. And from there it just got better. Our room was lovely and it had all the amenties you could ask for. There... More

We stayed at Rathlena Bed & Breakfast for two nights. We were delighted with the accommodations, the generous and varied breakfast and the excellent advice from Evelyn what to see and where to go. We were able to park our car on site and walk down into town. We could have shown the business card from the b&b and used... More

Large bed and walk in shower and toilet. The balcony is a bonus, wit a view over St Ives to the sea. St Ives is an attractive... More

Beautiful house in very comfortable surroundings complete with a most charming host! The room was spotless with the most unbelievable bed to boot! Close enough to the town centre to walk but not so close as to feel engulfed by it, all in all a lovely retreat!

My husband and I stayed at Rathlena for a couple of nights after getting married. We thought that the B+B was excellent. The room was of a good size and the bed was total bliss to sleep in, it was so comfortable! We were made to feel very welcome and also at the same time didn't feel "suffocated" like you... More

The Rathlena was everything we had hoped for and more. The room was excellent. We had all the facilities you would expect from a 5 star establishment. The breakfaast was great and our host Evelyn did everything to make our stay a one to remember. I would definitely recommend this place.

I wanted somewhere to stay to just get away from everything and really couldn't of asked for anything better than Rathlena, which is made all the more pleasant by the owner Evelyn and of course the most impressive breakfast to start the day, it was the best breakfast I have ever had when staying away. The house is beautiful, I... More
