We returned to' The Keep 'for a second visit as the first was over too quickly ! Carol and Mike were as friendly as ever and welcomed us like old friends. We chose to stay in The Pilchard Press this time as it had already been booked on our last visit. It was another beautiful room with a very elegant four poster bed which was really comfortable with lovely egyptian cotton sheets and very high quality soap and shower gel.
Breakfast was gorgeous again, but like last time, it was difficult to choose as it all sounded delicious. I opted for Eggs benedict and my partner went for Fruit pancakes. What a great start to the day !
This B & B is a real find right in the heart of St Ives, very close to the beach and The Tate but really peaceful as it's hidden away. You must try and book a room here, if you can get one ! We are already planning our third visit !
- 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 and the Harbour, The Tate, and the town itself. With no passing traffic at all, THE KEEP, a recently converted 16th Century Pilchard factory, offers a rare sense of peace and quiet, although the many amenities, restaurants and coastal walks are right on our doorstep. We provide a tasteful and relaxing bolthole exclusively for one couple, with sole use of a comfortable dining/living room. Visit us for a romantic stay in the Pilchard Press room, with KS four poster bed, generous storage, large flat-screen TV and spacious drench-shower en-suite. Enjoy a delicious locally-sourced breakfast in what used to be the central, now glass topped, courtyard, then step outside and explore. (NB For two couples travelling together, or two singles wanting separate rooms, we can offer a second bedroom on request.) ... more less
