We have just returned following a four night stay at The Anchorage and we generally loved it. Do not try and find it from the train station as we did, the taxi firm told us they had nothing for over half an hour and that it was a 5 minute walk - trust me, it isn't. If arriving by train,... More

We stayed at the anchorage last week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The room was spacious very clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and the host Danielle was very friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this B and B. We are regular visitors to St. Ives and the Anchorage is in Downalong very close to the beaches.... More

We had room 2 allocated on the ground floor outside with separate entrance. Lovely cosy hideaway very convenient to downtown St Ives. Staff friendly,nothing too much trouble, all our needs were met. Own reserved parking which is a bonus. Good breakfast with local produce. We will return.

Just had a wonderful 3 night stay at this little treasure of a b&b. We stayed in room 4 the smaller of rooms, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The separate shower room is across the very small landing, sole use for this room which was no problem probably making this the biggest room in this quaint cottage. The owner was... More

This is a perfect B&B for easy access to the harbour beaches trips etc. We stayed with Chris on our first trip here who is a hard act to follow but Danielle, Mary, Jane and Caitlin (and not forgetting little Ellie) who made our visit as equally a pleasure. They are perfect hosts food was always hot and more than... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in August. The room was really comfy and great value in high season. Staff were friendly and helpful. Delicious breakfast with lots of options. This B&B is great for couples and friends. Maybe not great for late risers as breakfast finishes at 9.15! But as its a very small B&B this is to be expected.... More

Excellent stay. Spotlessly clean. Danielle and Jane perfect hosts. Breakfast high quality. Arrived by train along the coast from St. Erth. No need for a car. Will definitely return Central location near the harbour. Good quality restaurants nearby.
