Had a fantastic three nights at Rivendell, Angela and Barry are very welcoming and full of knowledge of the local area which enhanced our trip immensely. The rooms are of excellent standard and breakfast was delicious. Will definately stay again if we are ever in St Ives.

They are really helpful and Angela is always on hand at breakfast to advise on different places you may wish to visit, while Barrie is busy cooking your lovely breakfasts. The Rivendell is a wonderful choice of accommodation and we wouldn't... More

Had a wonderful stay, Angela and Barry were attentive to all we needed. Room 5 has a super view overlooking the harbour, although a bit compact it was clean and catered for our every requirement, with plenty of draw and wardrobe space, only drawback were the seagulls who liked to roost on the roof above. Breakfast was plentyful to set... More

Every time the welcome, service and food was second to none.Comfortable, clean, in one word, "Perfect" Views breathtaking, amenities good. Plenty of places to eat and drink whatever your... More

Rivendell is a lovely guest house run by Angela and Barry, who are really friendly and make you very welcome. The rooms are beautiful, great value and clean. Rivendell is quite conveniently located - just off the road into St Ives - and is a very short walk from town as well as a short drive out. There's parking and... More
