“Top Notch Guesthouse”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Little Leaf was beyond comfortable, the whole house was immaculate & our fabulous room had amazing views.
We stayed 3 nights over the New Year & Danny & Lee couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome & comfy without being overbearing in anyway. As for the breakfast........well you'd better have a good appetite if you order the scrumptious full english & the daily specials are to die for. Don't be put off this wonderful guest house due to the lack of parking as there are plenty of spaces in the car park almost next door.
This really is an excellent B&B run by a smashing couple, which we highly recommend

Room Tip: No5 Top Floor has amazing views

Stayed for New Year. Had a really warm welcome, Danny and Lee make sure they cater for your needs. Lovely clean room with everything you need. Views from the hillside overlooking the harbour of St Ives were great even in winter weather. Breakfasts were perfect, full English is available each day or you can choose a daily special. Didn't want to go home! Thanks for a great stay.

We stayed at Little Leaf for 3 nights in between Christmas and New Year and couldn't have asked for a better guesthouse! Lee and Danny are really friendly and made us feel at home and they have added many personal touches to help elevate this above so many other B&Bs.

Our room (number 5 at the top) was superb with great views across St Ives. The guesthouse is only a few minutes walk away from the various bars, restaurants and shops of St Ives, and Lee and Danny were only too happy to offer advice on things to do etc.

And after a day of walking and drinking Cornish beer the breakfast in the morning was delicious.

The only negative? We couldn't stay longer.

I visited Little leaf since October, Hosts are lovely and great. I stayed here for 2 nights. Driving from here to penzance/ Land's End / Minack Theatre by 30 mins. You may walk to St. Ives town only 10 mins which you can find a nice restaurant and bar. Warm welcome, perfect room and super clean. Breakfast is delicious. I upload a lot of pictures to share with you, check it! I recommend you to stay here!

We can't recommend Little Leaf enough! From the friendly, warm welcome, lovely room, fabulous views (- and from what I can tell is a common theme!) tasty breakfasts, our stay was great. Danny and Lee are the perfect hosts and it really did feel a bit like a home away from home for a couple of days.

The local advice was invaluable and really added to our trip as we had some great fresh, local food and caught all the local activities (there was quite a lot at the beginning of Dec!)

We both want to head back in 2013, and have already recommended to friends and family. You won't regret booking here!

Room Tip: Room 5! At the top of the house, an interesting room and brilliant views!

Danny and Lee encourage their guests to leave constructive feedback so they can do everything they can to make Little Leaf a great place to stay. Form our point of view, there was nothing we could find that warranted any improvement. Our stay coincided with some fairly wild Cornish weather, but the house was warm, cozy and welcoming; with hot cups of tea and homemade biscuits on arrival.
We have stayed in St Ives several times before, but the advice from Danny on the best places to eat (and easiest ways to navigate the hilly streets) was still invaluable as we had dinner in fantastic places we had never thought of going to in the evening (such as the Porthgwidden beach cafe).
We stayed in room 5 which is right at the top of the house, with stunning views of the harbour. It was clean, comfortable and very tastefully decorated. Breakfasts were awesome: really good quality produce, very well cooked (not a smidgen of grease to be found!), both carnivore and veggie-friendly, and there were some great daily specials if you wanted a change from the full English. If you're there on a Sunday, we highly recommend the cinnamon French toast with berries and cream cheese!
All in all, this is a really great little place and it will definitely be our first choice of B&B when we are next in St Ives.

Lovely b&b. We stayed here for a couple of nights and loved it. Really friendly and relaxing atmosphere - felt very welcome when we arrived. Really nice room with some nice designer touches (neat fittings and really nice toiletries) and amazing view over the sea. The breakfasts were amazing - great full English (all quality stuff nicely cooked) and loved the idea of a daily special (I only got to try the French toast with fruits and cream cheese but I'm sure the other options are just as lovely!). It's in a great location - probably takes maximum of two minutes to walk into town (maybe a couple more on the way back up the hill!). Would happily stay here again - only good things to say about it!
