“A Fabulous Stay!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

We recently stayed at the Villamorva and were really impressed. The owner, Linda is so warm, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. She cooked gorgeous breakfasts and went above and beyond to accommodate our food requirements, eg how you like your eggs cooked, vegetarian preferences etc....Our room was beautifully decorated and it had the touches of a four star hotel with the fancy toiletries & tea making etc. Would definitely stay again. Thanks Linda!

Linda runs an excellent B&B close to the centre of St Ives. Our bedroom was spacious, scrupulously clean and well furnished. We both slept like logs as firstly the bed was very comfortable and secondly the road is quiet.
Every day started with a splendid breakfast both well cooked and plentiful I liked the salmon with scrambled eggs and Shirley usually went for the full English. We both loved the fresh fruit which was provided every day with the cereal.
Even the weather was perfect for the week.
We'll be back next time we go to St Ives.
Well done Linda.

St Ives was rammed when on the internet we were lucky enough to find Villamorva with a free room (there are only 2). The room was lovely, all white, fresh and clean with a dinky shower room ensuite. The view to the sea was made even better by a well placed chair and some binoculars! A nice hospitality tray was very welcome.

Breakfast was varied, plenty of it and tasty. Linda was helpful in advising where to go and we enjoyed some good walks.

I would go back again but it is worth pointing out 2 things (1) the shower room is small and would not suit a large person (2) there is some street noise as reported in other reviews - nothing can be done about this but if you are a light sleeper the back room may be better (although I didnt stay in this one it did look nice as well).

Room Tip: Great sea view from front bedroom

We stayed a few days here and had a wonderful time! Linda is a brilliant thoughtful host who goes out of her way to make your stay as perfect as possible, sorting out car-parking and giving restaurant recommendations/phone numbers. The rooms are light and airy with lovely little touches. There was a good choice of breakfast and Linda was happy to adapt the menu to your tastes. The location is central and there was noise from other St.Ives visitors and seagulls into the night, so if you need it to be silent to sleep you should bear this in mind. Overall we had a great time and wouldn't hesitate in recommending this as a place to stay to our friends and family.

A lovely B&B where a great deal of thought had gone into layout, decor and facilities. A nice welcome, excellent breakfast (artisan breads and jams in particular)and an ideal location for exploring St Ives. A bit lively, from the street scene, in the front room at night but the weather was that good that we had to have the window wide open. A thoroughly relaxing week.

Everything was perfect. The room was comfortable and stylish, breakfast was lovely with a great choice of everything and Linda was very nice. Location very Close to the centre. One of the best B&Bs we've ever had in England.

Lovely B&B set in a good position for exploring St Ives. The owner, Lynda was very welcoming and friendly. The room was clean and spacious and the bathroom was too. Wi-fi was no problem. The full English breakfast was well cooked and there was a good choice of cereals and jams. The only thing that stopped me giving an excellent rating was single glazed windows, which did affect our sleep, due to late night ravers walking back! Apart from that we had a lovely time at this great little B&B.
