We had a great stay at Atlantic heights , tony and carol are lovely hosts nothing is too much trouble. We stayed for 3 nights in room 2 which was lovely clean and very comfortable, hospitality tray with assortment of teas was the best we have seen by far. We went to visit the Tate gallery which is why we came to st Ives and the whole experience was lovely we both had the best weekend.
We are looking to book for new year for another long weekend of R&R
See u soon tony and carol

Having been holidaying in St. Ives, on and off, for around thirty years, and always staying previously on the other side of town, with views of the harbour, we thought we would have a change of scenery by overlooking Porthmeor beach.
We chose Atlantic Heights for our short break, 4 nights, based on the really good reviews we had read whilst looking for suitable accommodation.
We chose and were able to book room no4. This room is at the front of the guest house, on the top floor and has spectacular views overlooking Porthmeor beach, part of the town,Godrevy Lighthouse, and the surrounding ocean.
On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Tony and Carol, almost as if we were long lost friends.
Tea and Coffee was made immediately for us, and everything we needed to know regarding the breakfast arrangements and our room was explained to us.
Tony cooks the breakfasts, and Carol serves. The choice is good covering all tastes and Tony also does his own baking if you require a continental breakfast. The breakfast is excellent and will set you up for the day.
You would go a long way to find more friendly hosts for your stay and I can't recommend them highly enough.
Details of all their rooms, along with photo's, are available on their own web site, but I would add, that all furnishings, tea and coffee making, and soaps are of a very high standard. Also, everywhere is, as many others have mentioned, spotlessly clean.
One small detail that I would mention, is that in our room, a pair of binoculars was provided; a nice touch that enabled us to take full advantage of our panoramic view. I would assume that room no1, also with fine views, has the same facility.
All guests have the use of the well furnished lounge area, so that those without rooms at the front, and consequently no views over Porthmeor beach, can still enjoy views from the large bay window in the lounge.
Car parking is free, and is directly in front of the guest house, in their own private parking area. A small feeder road, Ocean View Terrace, gives access to the front of the guest house and car park.There is also a very well laid out garden accessed by some steps down from their parking area.There is a decked area with table and chairs overlooking Porthmeor beach and the ocean beyond.
All in all, we found everything about Atlantic Heights as perfect as is possible, and will ,circumstances permitting, be returning for our early yearly visit to St. Ives, next year.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have the spectacular views.

This was our first visit to St Ives and also to Atlantic Heights,Carole and Tony were so welcoming,nothing was too much trouble ,the b & b was absolutely spotless and so was our room,we were in number one on the first floor which had amazing views over St. Ives,the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a lovely jacuzzi bath.We had a gorgeous full English breakfast but there was also plenty of other choices if needed including home cooked pastries ! Carole and Tony were extremely helpful with local knowledge and if you want fishing gear or surfing they offer to lend.

We stayed in this lovely B&B for 4 nights. We were received my the lovely couple that runs the B&A. Carol and Tony made us feel welcome since the we stepped into their house. The B&A is super well located. About 2 minutes from Tate and 5 minutes from the town centre. The view from the living room, from the garden and from the front rooms is breathtaking.
The room we stayed in (5) was spacious, comfortable and spotless.
The breakfast was simply fantastic. They have a menu so you can order the night before. The full English Breakfast was superb! The porridge was the best we've ever had. And believe it! Tony makes the pastries for the continental breakfast himself! Everything fresh and locally produced!
No doubt I will stay there again when back in St Ives!

We arrived on a wet afternoon to be met by a smiling Tony. Carol made us a very welcome cuppa, which we drank as they gave us advice on the area ,places to eat and short cuts into the town. Our room was spotless, the bed large and very comfortable.Plenty of choice for breakfast, cereals ,yoghurt, fresh fruit salad,and a cooked breakfast of your choice. A short walk into the town, down hill, but when you see the location, the views, you forget about the climb back.A big thank you to Tony and Carol for looking after us so well.We will be returning and maybe next time book a sea view room.

I stayed here with my friend for two nights, and despite our short stay Tony and Carol, the couple who own the b&b, made us feel so at home, giving great advice about a short cut to the beach, things to do and places to eat. We stayed in room 5, the family room, and it was spotless. The photographs online don't do it justice, it is massive! The bed was sooo comfortable, the en suite was lovely, and it had a flat-screen tv and wifi which was great for chilling out in the evening. Overal, very tidy and clean without feeling clinical like some palces- still very warm and homely, and with plenty of storage to stow your things away. There was private off-road parking right outside to leave your car; it's just a 2 minute walk to the beach, and 5 minute walk from the town- excellent for St Ives, where driving your car down to the sea front isn't practical re parking. Tony and Carol really went the extra mile; they offered us the loan of wetsuits, surf boards, wind breaks etc which was so sweet, and they took our breakfast requests the previous night so it was ready for us bang on time, and not only did you get exactly what you ordered (from a large selection!) but there was a table of fruit salad, yoghurt and cereals you could help yourself to, which I thought was a very nice touch. I rarely stay in b&b's because of the cost; this was inended as a one-off treat for me and my friend, but we've defintely been hooked- we're hoping to go back for New Year!

Room Tip: We've only stayed in one room (so far!), Room 5. It didn't have a view but you're welcom...

Staying in Atlantic Heights was brilliant. Really great hosts, they were very friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home. They had wet suits and boards we could borrow if we wanted to go surfing. The location is perfect, it's a really short walk to the beach and into town which was perfect for us. The vegetarian breakfast was really yummy, and the croissants were delicious. There was a lot of choice! The room was really nice, and the beds were sooo comfy. Was a really brilliant stay :)
