“Fantastic B&B in St Ives”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

We had a great stay at the Olive Branch. I had been impressed by the other reviews and am pleased to say it lived up to expectations - it is a very clean and tidy B&B in a good location and we felt well looked after. Justin and Julie were very welcoming and cook a delicious breakfast with nice coffee - a great start to the day. We also loved George, the dog. I would certainly recommend staying at the Olive Branch!

This is our 2nd visit to the Olive Branch and the experience is even better! A wonderfully positioned b & b with the added bonus of on site parking. Large rooms with all the usual amenities and the largest TV I have ever seen ? We stayed on room 3 a double aspect room with armchair. The bedding and quilt was sumptious giving a lovely nights sleep.Julie cooked a super breakfast and Justin pointed us in the right direction for all the local places to walk and dine. Can't wait to return!

We had only planned to stay for one night, but quickly changed that to two nights. Justin was very helpful, the room/bathroom were spotless and the B&B was well located with a parking spot. I am vegetarian and Justin whipped up a full veggie breakfast - fantastic. I would also dare anyone not to fall in love with George. Would recommend and we are planning a return when the weather is a tad warmer.

Room Tip: The room was large, with a great bed. Bedding was luxurious. Bathroom was spotlessly clean.

Wonderful New Years stay. Justin and Julie were very welcoming, friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble. The B&B was very well presented and very clean. Our bedroom was lovely, the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was lovely. Really, really great stay in a great B&B with great hosts, can't wait to visit again. Dave and Deb x

We have returned from a 3 night stay at the Olive Branch, it was part of my recuperation after a knee replacement. We were given a very warm welcome and the family dog, George to walk. The many steps in around St Ives along with George were a great tonic for my knee. The rooms were very comfortable with a mighty breakfast and a friendly smile. We will return.

My husband and I stayed at the Olive Branch for 4 nights. We had room 3 which was such a lovely room. Bright and very spacious with fantastic sea views. The place was spotless and Justin and Julie made us feel very welcome, not to mention George the dog too. The location is perfect with only a short walk into the town. It was easy to find and offered parking which is always an added bonus. The breakfasts were spot on, nice quality ingredients cooked to your liking. We would highly recommend staying here to anyone, we didn't want to leave!
