Great visit in ST:Ives and at Rivendells B&B. The room, the breakfast and the service was fantastic. Perfect located, only a short walk from the city center. Don't miss to visit Land's End nearby. A magic view. / Frida and Jonas B from Sweden.

Rivendell Guest House is charming, clean, comfortable, and smartly designed. Not one wrong note here! Its location is perfect - close to town, beaches, and public transportation. Perched above Porthminster beach it offers quaint, quiet, and impeccably clean rooms with wonderful views. The owners Angela and Barrie are the perfect hosts! They're warm and hospitable, and so knowledgeable about the... More

Angela and Barrie run a little gem of a place here! The rooms are well appointed, and spotlessly clean. Great brekkie in the morning and onsite parking, in a perfect location. Can't wait to return!! The pic is the view from room 6.

Lovely room overlooking the harbour. Spotlessly clean. The breakfast was second to none, all you could eat and really set you up for the day exploring. When we came back to change there was a nice touch with a Halloween chocolate on our pillows.

Super location and very close to restaurants and beaches. The owners are lovely, welcoming and very helpful. The breakfast was included and it was perfect as well. Free parking is available as well which is necessary in St. Ives.

Rivendell sets its own standard in hospitality and quality. Angela has been a wonderful caring host and her house breathes an atmosphere of style, beauty and warmth. Rivendell keeps a great balance between personal touch & professional standards. We can recommend Rivendell Guesthouse to everyone who is looking for really good place to stay in St. Ives.
