We had a three night stay at Rathlena in May and everything was just perfect. The rooms are spotlessly clean with very good quality furniture and fittings. Breakfast was varied and excellent choice even for quests on a special diet. We will defiantly return.

Evelyn made us feel welcome from the start. The room was clean and tidy, a great size with on-suite, settee and a lovely balcony overlooking the sea. The breakfast was excellent and nice to sit with the other 2 couples chatting away first thing in the morning.

What a lovely place to stay. The room was enormous, even had a settee in it. It was much bigger than some of the 4 star hotels we have stayed in. The breakfast was great and the proprietor was ready to cook any combination you wanted. I even had coddled egg which was a first. Can fully recommend this bed... More

A lovely place to stay with a large room and great breakfast. Evelyn cares for her guests and has thought of everything. It is hard if not impossible to take your car down to the town. Quite a hike back up the hill after dinner in St Ives but taxis are available. Would return even though this was the most... More
