We stayed at the Keep for two nights in October for my friends 50th birthday. I had read some of the reviews before booking and everything looked good from the reviews and I can honestly say that the reviews I read praising the B&B were spot on. It is clean and modern, a great location just around the corner from the Tate and the beach a few minutes from the centre of town. Mike and Carol are great host and were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great with fresh fruit and fresh orange juice and a daily special breakfast choice for example salmon,scrambled egg and bagel or you can have a lovely English breakfast To give you an ideal of the standard of the room and service we had for comparison I was working in Sicily the week before and I stayed at the Hilton there and the Keep beat Hilton hands down in every respect! Would highly recommend the Keep will definitely being going back there!
- 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
