We came here for our first wedding anniversary after reading reviews on here and were not disappointed. It is ideally located in the centre of St Ives, only a minute from a beach and a couple more from the shops. The Keep is beautifully decorated to a very high standard and imaculate in every way.We stayed in the mermaid room, which was perfect. The owners are lovely, friendly people, who were more than happy to offer advice on where to eat, places to go. The breakfast is cooked to order and it is delicious, i must recommend the berry pancakes and maple syrup - truly divine.Although it is in the centre, it is hidden away nicely. We would definately go back to the keep, thank you for making our 1st anniversary one to remember.
- 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
