Location is excellent if using public transport - I arrived by train, and departed by bus, and both are close to the Golden Hind on The Terrace. It is also only a short walk to the High Street, the waterfront, and the laundrette! My room was on the third floor, with an amazing view of St Ives Harbour - I could have just sat at the window in the sun and watched the tide go in and out if I didn't have a responsibility as a tourist to see everything St Ives has to offer. My room had separate toilet, and ensuite shower and basin. Breakfast was substantial and well cooked. Gluten free not a problem. (However, my tablecloth was soiled the first time I ate, and not replaced.) Alex, the owner was kind and helpful, without being too involved. I spent a lovely 4 nights here.

This b&b was such a lovely surprise positioned opposite the harbour and close to the bus station (the latter being small and unobtrusive). I was on the top floor and really enjoyed the views across the bay, mornings and evenings. There's a car park at the back (my satnav had difficulty in finding this) and the car can be left there as it's so easy to walk into and around the town - or get buses to ... well, almost anywhere.

A lovely welcome and great room with fantastic views over the bay. The room was spotless and ensuite shower really powerful. Only a five minute walk into town. Lots of choice for breakfast and the full english as good as any 4 star hotel. The owner Alex recommended places to visit and they didn't disappoint. The free parking icing on the cake. Would definately recommend.

Stayed for 4 nights. The view was absolutely fantastic of all of St Ives Bay and harbour (see their website). Bed extremely comfy. Room cleaned every day. Very generous 'full English' breakfast with nothing lacking. Run very efficiently by Alex, who was very helpful. The location is really ideal - right near the small bus station and train station with good services. If you have a car there is a parking space available at the guest house. Re one of the reviews and the comment regarding the dog - in all the four days I was there I didn't actually know there was a dog, only when I knocked on Alex's door for something, and then it only barked twice, that was it!.

A warm welcome from the owners upon arrival. A great room with an outstanding view over St Ives harbour.

Fantastic location in the town centre with the benefit of free car parking on site. All rooms were ensuite - this isn't always the case in guest houses.

Will certainly return for another stay - highly recommended.
