Very nice B&B with a great location. Very good breakfast with plenty of varieties incl. vegetarian, freshly cooked by the owner. Newly renovated with quite comfortable rooms - No. 5 & 6 do have the very best view over the entire bay of St. Ives. Also reserved parking at the train station (3 minutes walk) is provided. That place will... More

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

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

Just spent 9 nights at The Rookery, excellent room with fabulous views and comfortable bed, the cleanliness was exceptional with nice little touches. Fabulous breakfast with good choice, lovely owners Barbara & Ron and great staff, would highly recommend this Guest House. Looking forward to our next visit.

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
