We stayed here for two nights from NYE 2015. The owners were really fantastic, great hospitality and very attentive. The location was very good, only a two minute walk into town. Breakfast was very nice, all free range and high quality ingredients cooked to a high standard. The rooms were lovely and we were lucky enough to have one with... More

Lovely room overlooking the harbour. Spotlessly clean. The breakfast was second to none, all you could eat and really set you up for the day exploring. When we came back to change there was a nice touch with a Halloween chocolate on our pillows.

Super location and very close to restaurants and beaches. The owners are lovely, welcoming and very helpful. The breakfast was included and it was perfect as well. Free parking is available as well which is necessary in St. Ives.

Rivendell sets its own standard in hospitality and quality. Angela has been a wonderful caring host and her house breathes an atmosphere of style, beauty and warmth. Rivendell keeps a great balance between personal touch & professional standards. We can recommend Rivendell Guesthouse to everyone who is looking for really good place to stay in St. Ives.
