Very very happy with the Rivendell Guest House. Everything about this place is brilliant. We arrived to a very hearty welcome. The parking spaces were full but one was being used by the owners daughter who moved her car straight away. We didn't even need to ask about parking. Barrie was lovely and showed us to our room - which... More

The hill is very steep and not suitable for those with mobilityproblems. there is a shuttle bus service but it stops at 7pm. We booked room 7 because it boasted a "sea view". However this room is built into the attic and has... More

Rivendell Guest House is a lovely place just a short walk from plenty of beaches, restaurants and other attractions that St Ives has to offer, very clean and tidy, brilliant breakfast and on site parking which is very handy and worth a lot when staying in St Ives, we will hopefully be visiting again soon

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.

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

We have had a lovely 2 night break, booked last minute. The room was the cleanest I have ever stayed in. Angela made home made scones with jam and clotted cream for our arrival. The breakfast, cooked by Barrie was 5 star. The hotel is welcoming, Angela and Barrie are lovely, you are only 300m from the centre and there's... 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.
