This delightful B&B is just what you need for a gorgeous stay in St Ives :) Breakfast very tasty Owners very approachable & friendly, although some may find Ron a bit 'dry' !!! - you'll get used to him , think faulty towers ;) Room was brilliant, had our 10 year old daughter with us & she loved the harbour...

OK, so I used the online booking form to make an initial enquiry and on getting no reply I phoned up and spoke to Mr Rooke who did have a vacancy. The provisional booking consisted of a slight interrogation about the name of my husband (a big assumption there as I was in fact traveling with my sister) and then... More

A great stay here with lovely views into St Ives. Very clean rooms with everything you would need! Very helpful hosts providing an excellent breakfast! Rooms at the front were very noisy with traffic and the bus station was opposite which created more noise but the views did make up for it. Need to be fit to get to and... More

Just home from our return visit to the Rookery, it was just like returning home. The staff are attentive and helpful, and Ron and Barbara are on hand to help with anything and everything. The room was fantastic with wonderful views of St. Ives bay. I didn't want to come home! Great room, great food, great service and great weather... More

Stayed here in July for 3 nights. Did not expect much in the way of a single room but was pleasantly surprised. Lots of space to store clothes and room had everything one needed. Hairdryer, toiletries, daily stocked refreshments tray with good selection of items. I even found a room fan, and a laptop tray and a pull out drying... More

The rooms are of a very high standard. Very central to St Ives so noise levels can be on the high side but good double glazing reduces this. High standard breakfasts. Staff in the dining room are funny in that an elderly waiter forgets the order within seconds and is back again. A young teenager waitress got an order wrong... More

Cleanliness excellent. A warm friendly greeting. Breakfast again excellent. So close to bus station and taxi's for daily stress free day trips. Ron and Barbara were the perfect hosts. Everything you could want in a relaxing break away for it all.
