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

we were disappointed . ron sounded very friendly on the phone but when we arrived we saw that the guest house is right by a busy main road and this dominates as does the bus station opposite . The price of the rooms is nearly the same as guest houses nearer the sea with nicer views . I think its... More

This is a friendly, conveniently-located B&B in St Ives. Nicely appointed rooms. I enjoyed the American pancakes for breakfast, and I'm from the States originally. I especially appreciated that the owners took time to advise on local sightseeing, because without their help, we would not have known to visit St Michael's Mount in Marazion, which was a highlight of the...

Looked at good and bad reviews before coming. And bad ones are all unfounded. Ron and staff are credit to the industry. And ive beento a lot of places. As for stone steps. Thats called hhistory folks and if you walk up a bit further you will find easier access to the terrace

The Rookery was our first B & B stay while travelling around the UK recently. My husband, daughter and I stayed for 2 nights with our hosts Ron and Barbara, thoroughly enjoying our stay. Our warm welcome was appreciated along with the excellent accommodation that was clean and modern. The B & B is located close to the main shopping... More

This is still one of the best places I have ever stayed. This place doesn't need any more excellent reviews, clearly all other guests who have stayed there agree. Why am I writing an updated review? Because consistency is really important and yet so hard to achieve. We can all visit restaurants that are having a really bad night or... More
