A lovely family run B&B. The room was beautiful with amazing far reaching sea views. Ron and Barbara were welcoming and helpful. We will definitely be coming back! Thank you for looking after us so well.

Me and my wife were in St Ives for the day yesterday and decided to try and stay overnight at the last minute. The Rookery luckily had 1 room left and what a lovely room it was. We were in room 2 which was spotlessly clean, had a lovely en suite bathroom and stunning sea views. All the staff were... More

We returned to the Rookery for our second visit on the 5 July. We had Rooms 2&3 and we could not fault our stay one bit. The rooms were exceptionally clean,the hospitality was great,the views were superb and the breakfasts tremendous. We love this place and will return again next year.

We were pleasantly surprised by our delightful second floor room overlooking the harbour. The bed was very comfortable, the window table and stools were great to sit at to watch the tide come and go and the bathroom was excellent and of very good quality. Ron was a very kind host to us and far exceeded our expectations by helping... More

My wife and I have stayed here twice, and Ron remembered us second time round. My wife had just come out of hospital on our first trip and Ron and his colleagues could not have been any more helpful. Perfect location, 5 minute walk from the beach, train and town centre. The sea view from our room was perfect. Breakfast... More

My daughter and I stayed here in the summer of 2013 and it was great. Very friendly and nothing was too much trouble - if it hadn't been for Ron and his knowledge of the area we would never have known the best places to visit in Cornwall. We had a great time in a lovely relaxing atmosphere with very... More
