This place is just wonderful! I booked a Cornish holiday for my parents visiting from Australia for a week and wished we had stayed here the entire time. My parents took one room and my partner and I the other and it honestly felt like our own little home in St Ives. Carol and Mike are lovely people, always ensuring we were comfortable and made the most delicious breakfasts - I will also throw my hat in the ring and say the pancakes are to die for!
They also had some great tips of places to visit and things to do in St Ives and as a result, we had a fantastic experience at a restaurant they recommended.
I would recommend this sweet little getaway, in the heart of St Ives, to absolutely anyone. My partner and I will definitely be back and I will recommend The Keep to any of my friends visiting Cornwall.
Thanks so much Mike and Carol!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- THE KEEP B&B occupies a unique, central position tucked away in the heart of coastal St Ives, only a few yards from Porthmeor Beach, The Tate, and the town itself. With no passing traffic at all, THE KEEP, a tasteful 16th Century Pilchard Press conversion, offers a rare sense of peace and quiet, although the amenities, restaurants and coastal walks are right on our doorstep. Our guests have a choice of just two individually designed bedrooms, each with spacious modern en suite drench showers, flat screen TVs, free high-speed WiFi, underfloor heating and King-size beds (one a romantic four poster). Enjoy a delicious locally-sourced breakfast in what used to be the central, now glass topped, courtyard, then step outside and explore. ... more less
