Staying at Headlands House and visiting St. Ives was one of the nicest trips I ever had. I loved it and I was very happy there. The place is wonderful and just after I arrived I felt like home. It is very lovely and stylishly decorated and the breakfast is very delicious. But it is not only the house which... More

What a pity we could not have stayed for our two booked nights. One day was terrific. Owners and staff very nice. Rooms very comfortable. We lost the first night because the local airline FlyBe cancelled our flight from Gatwick.

Thank you so much Mark and Fenella for a very relaxing and comfortable stay. We stayed in 'Senna' room which was very comfortable and had lovely views across the bay.Nothing was too much trouble and there were lots of little extra touches which added to our holiday, from the smoothy shots at breakfast to the yummy cake in the afternoon...

Beautiful house near to Carbis Bay beach. The hosts were very warm and made us feel like home right away. We stayed in the Boat House which is spacious and decorated with taste, but does not have a sea view which we have enjoyed from the terrace. The footpath to St Ives is a very beautiful walk to make.

Great location with excellent views. Owner was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly, making us feel right at home. Room was perfect, tastefully decorated with fresh milk and water in the fridge. Breakfast was superb with a great variety of locally sourced products.

This hotel is special. The rooms are furnished to a high standard. The breakfasts were superb and there was a good variety on offer. The owners were very friendly and gave advice on restaurants and places to go. They also put a bottle of sparkling wine in our room to celebrate our Anniversary. We shall certainly return to this Hotel.

2 nights just isn't enough! This is a truly luxurious Boutique B & B. Exceptional in every way - accommodation, attention to detail, breakfast and more. Fenella and Mark go above and beyond to delivery a truly luxurious stay. They are warm and extremely helpful hosts. Fab breakfast using fresh, local produce. Wonderful sea view and train into St Ives... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our honeymoon in May and couldn't have had a nicer stay. It is listed as B&B but really is more like a very homely hotel! The decor is beautiful, facilities top class and the staff really helpful and friendly. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at Headland House Hotel for two nights in early June. I say lucky, but there had been alot of research taken before we booked. 'Time spent in reconnaissance is time never wasted' is a well known quote and believe me it was worth the search! Headland House was just a perfect... More
