“Perfect Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We are two students at Exeter University, staying in St Ives for 4 nights. We left after having the best time in both town and accommodation!

It isn't an over-exaggeration to say that everything was perfect! It was. The host was friendly and smiley, there was a great communal feel amongst the guests (swapping what each other had done in their days) and it was great value for money!

The room was clean and bright! A home away from home!

I would definitely recommend!!!

Four of us stayed at Lord Ryans in April on a road trip around the south of England. We had a four bed bunk which was incredibly clean and beautifully brightly furnished, it was a perfect place to stay with friends. Mariana was a lovely host and supplied an excellent breakfast. The eating area was decorated in bright seaside colours and was also very clean. The B&B is located very close to St Ives town and close to public parking. High recommend and will be back to stay again.

My partner and I stayed for three nights in the Studio Apartment which we found to be very comfortable and clean. It was decorated in a seaside theme and all furnishings appeared new and in good repair. The room was clean tidy and warm. The bathroom facilities were small but more than adequate. The shower was easy to use and always warm.

Mariana was a pleasant host and helpful.

Breakfast is continental. There is always more than enough to go around but it may not be to everyone's liking and a traditional breakfast would have been preferred.

Location is OK. St Ives is hilly and LordRyans is positionned on a hill meaning that return trips can be tiring. I would say that this is the only factor that let down the property. If you are elderly then you must consider its location carefully.

Overall a lovely introduction to St Ives and I would definitely recommend this establishment to friends.

Last week I stayed for 4 nights at Lord Ryan’s House. I was in the room next to the dining room and entrance, which the website mentions can be noisy at times. I had no problem at all, which might have been because all that sea air and healthy walking tired me out, but I like to think that in general, people are considerate! The room is beautifully decorated, and very comfortable.

There is an excellent selection of yummy things for Continental breakfast, including plenty of fresh fruit, and the fridge, kettle, etc are available for use at any time.

The B&B is perfectly situated for getting to most places. It’s not far from the Tate Gallery, as well as the harbour and town centre. The Leach Pottery is an easy walk - uphill, but more of a gentle incline than some. I walked to and from the station, which is mostly fairly easy, but avoid Windsor Hill, which doesn’t look much on the map, but is almost vertical!

Mariana is friendly and very welcoming, and has thought of everything for an enjoyable visit. I’m not sure when I’ll next be in Cornwall, but I’m absolutely sure of where I intend to stay.

Mrs Mariana is a perfect host, her apartments are very clean and comfortable, it's all very good value for money, the abundant continental breakfast buffet really is worth a try, and they are a nice family. St Ives is absolutely gorgeous, with its 3 stunningly large sandy, golden beaches. Worth it. Very good for families with children - and pet-friendly!

Room Tip: Only one room available for pets, so book early.

The atmosphere was so friendly, the staff were welcoming and easy to chat to. The rooms were beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable. The location was ideal and allowed us to get wherever we were going quickly. The breakfast each day was delicious and freshly prepared. The dining room was open and airy and allow for a lot of sunlight, a wonderful place to eat. The guest house was comfortable and easygoing. I rarely sleep well when away from home, but this was not the case here. I would recommend Lord Ryans to anyone and plan on visiting again myself.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room with the twin beds. It was comfortable and beautifully decorated. All the room...
