Beautiful room with nice decor. Welcoming and comfortable. Sea views from window. Breakfast was great and always quick to be served. Owner was very welcoming and pleasant. 10 min walk from harbour very close to get to places within st Ives. Would visit again if back in the area.

My husband and I stayed here over the last bank holiday weekend in May. Lynn is an amazing host, replying promptly to my emails and also giving us great local recommendations. Their B and B is a short walk either to the center of St Ives or to the Beach. Our room was very spacious, with lovely views across the... More

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at 3 Porthminster. We had a gorgeous room with a huge bay window looking across the bay. The room was very clean and comfortable and we really enjoyed relaxing on the sofa watching the world go by. The breakfasts were excellent and Lynn was a great host. We thoroughly enjoyed our...

A gorgeous B&B right in the heart of St Ives. We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of June. The host Lynn was extremely welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. There is free parking right outside which is a rarity, especially in St Ives. The B&B is a 5min walk to Porthminster Beach and a 5/10min walk into the... More

We have just returned from the most lovely break in this beautiful B & B. John and Lynn were so welcoming. The room was stunning with views over the harbour, pristinely clean with tea, coffee and water replenished daily. Delicious breakfast.We would certainly stay here again. All amenities were within walking distance.

We arrived by train and it was a 10 minute walk to the guest house (it's the train station side of town). Lynn met us and showed us our room and gave us a great overview of the town. The B&B was spotlessly clean and full of personality. She could not have been more helpful and friendly. We had a... More

John and Lynn run a beautiful B&B. Meticulously clean rooms with everything thought out…a place to put everything. Delicious breakfast. Close to walk into town. A very homey and warm ambiance. We would definitely go back for another stay.

Wonderful room, perfect stay in a lovely B&B. Friendly hosts, and a fabulous breakfast. I couldn't recommend this more highly (and I'm very very fussy!). We shall definitely be returning as soon as possible.

We chose 3 Porthminster due to its close location to town (short distance of a few minutes walk) and also the fact it was set back from the hustle and bustle of st. Ives. We spent three nights for our anniversary here, we found Lynn to be a fantastic hostess as she was always on hand to help and even... More
