If you want a warm and friendly welcome ,comfy beds in an immaculate bedroom, super breakfasts with plenty of choice, then the Rivendell is the perfect place to stay. Although only a short walk to town, it's in a nice quiet area . We spent 5 lovely days there and we are really looking forward to our next visit.

Rivendell guest house , St. Ives We stayed for two nights and found our stay pleasant and comfortable. Nice little touch upon arrival with the drink and cake! We selected Rivendell as it was the best balance between good online reviews and price, although we did feel that all the accomodation in St. Ives was a little overpriced. We found... More

When it comes to making people feel welcome Angela & Barrie have it down to a fine art. Nothing is too much trouble with Angela going the extra mile with a pot of tea and home made cake upon our arrival.The breakfast cooked by Barrie was first class and always set you up for the day.The room was spotlessly clean...

This B&B is welcoming, clean, tastefully decorated (no multiple florals here!) and in a magnificent place with a view to die for from my room no. 5. Breakfast was very good and I would definitely stay there again.

Our second visit and it was as good as we remembered. The rooms are big enough for a holiday need, are clean and tastefully presented. We were lucky enough to have room 5, with the view over the harbour. Barry and Angela are marvellous hosts, very knowledgable on the area and fabulous breakfasts

We've been coming here for years and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. We could not be better looked after. Angela and Barrie are the best hosts you could wish for - so welcoming and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. All the rooms are spotlessly clean, with great views, and the breakfasts are great. Can't wait to come back... More

Probably my best ever guesthouse/ bnb stay. Hosts were lovely, breakfast was really nice and the room was very tidy, with a fab view of the harbour. Would definitely stay again. We had no problem whatsoever finding the place and it's in a perfect spot just a few moments from all the restaurants and stuff you will want to do... More

Spent two nights at Rivendell and was really pleased with the high standard of accommodation. The house is extremely clean and the room we had was modern and beautifully decorated with a new ensuite. The mirror in the en suite was particularly pleasing to my daughter, as it was "like a film star" with touch sensors to operate the lights... More
