This is a traditional al guest house. It might not be boutique style but the room we stayed in (3) was large and we'll supplied with chairs and storage. A lovely view of the sea at Porthminster. Quiet yet very well located for access to the town. The free parking is an added bonus. Linda and Graham are pleasant but... More

On arrival we were warmly greeted by Lynne, the owner. The guest house is in a great location, 5 minutes from the town downhill (10 back up the hill!) and the beach 10 minutes away. We were allocated room 5 with a partial view of the sea and harbour. The room was fine with a small bathroom with shower, plenty... More

Reading other reviews, I cannot be as complimentary as most of the others so perhaps we were unlucky. The owner is very friendly, the B&B is in a good position and our room was large with a good view. BUT there are certain issues: others have mentioned the poor wifi and we got none during our stay.The room has a... More

I stayed for two nights, it was very comfortable, the location is ideal for the centre of St Ives, you can walk down into the centre for all the pubs and restaurants. I was well looked after, great breakfasts

I stayed just one night in this lovely BnB. It was very comfortable, the bed was so nice with crisp fresh cotton sheets and lots of feather pillows. My room was very comfortable and had a very nice view down over the village which was only a short walk down the hill. I had safe parking for my rental car.... More

Clean guest house with stunning views of St.Ives. Breakfast was tasty and loved the yoghurt and fruit that guests can help them selves to whilst waiting for breakfast. Free parking saved a small fortune and only had to walk 5 minutes to get in to town. Perfect place to stay for a long weekend away.

This place was just what we needed, nothing fancy but it had everything we required for our 4 night stay in St. Ives. The breakfast was lovely, great scrambled eggs and we enjoyed the coffee. There was a good selection of fruit and cereals too. The location of this B&B is great, just 5-10 minutes walk to everywhere really in... More

Great view from window/seat. Car parking a great plus. Good breakfasts, good hosts. Clean and comfortable. Wifi very weak and tv/kettle sockets a bit fiddly. Had to go through sons bedroom to get to loo in night- luckily he sleeps like a log!

Lynne and Graham are the perfect hosts. Clean, friendly and an ideal guesthouse. Excellent service for breakfast with plenty to choose from. Its location is only 5 minutes walk to both the town and beach which means you can leave the car in the parking facilities. Plenty of recommendations of where to eat. Ideal location and would recommend.
