Atlantic Heights
Ranked #22 of 102 St Ives B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 9, 2008

We have just returned from Cornwall where we had an absolutely great weekend. We felt exhausted after a long drive on Friday evening, but Marilyn and Rueben greeted us very warmly and immediately made us feel at home. Added to the great welcome we found that we had been upgraded to a different room, which was a lovely surprise.

The B&B was one of the best that we've stayed in. It's situated on a hill overlooking the breaking waters of the Atlantic, and even if you don't (as we didn't) have a sea view from your room, just opening the door in the morning is an exciting experience.The room, which was spacious and tastefully decorated, was also immaculately clean. The breakfasts (there were a range to choose from) were very tasty and the ingredients fresh.

Knowing very little about St. Ives M&R provided us with a chunky welcome pack to Cornwall. They also gave us the low-down on where to go to within the town (sights, restaurants, bars, etc), but also points of interest outlying areas in the penninsula (the Minack amphitheatre which overlooks the Atlantic at Porthcurno is one we definitely want to go to on our return).

Basically this B&B is of the highest quality with a management who you really feel enjoy having you there. The weather was quite terrible while we were there but we'll definitely be back to St Ives and Atlantic Heights.

My wife and I spent a few days at Atlantic Heights while celebrating our wedding anniversary.

We enjoyed a clean, pretty and well-equipped room, a stunning view from a great location, good breakfasts, and convivial and helpful service.

Our only complaint - if it can be called a complaint - is that the bed was a lot higher and softer than we like. But - hey! - that's just us.

Another excellent stay at this 'contemporary' guest house. Room 4 has wonderful sea views and is very comfortable. Rueben and Marilyn are both friendly and helpful- nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts are well cooked and presented. We were very fortunate to have a weekend of sun and clear blue skies. We would recommend this Guest House and rate as 5 star!!

Hi Reuben and Marilyn. Just got home after a really lovely week in St.Ives. Wanted to say that the rooms were in excellant condition and the breakfast will take some beating! Going to spend the next couple of days recovering from that coastal walk! After spending 4 nights in that lovely bed, we're now off to the shops to try and find one to match!
Again, thanks for making us feel very welcome and providing a 1st class service.

We found this B & B by using trip advisor and must say what a wonderful time we had staying here. Marilyn & Reuben could not have been more attentive or polite. They have the right level of interest in all your needs as a guest and have good advise on where to go and what to do.
The room was fantastic. We had room 4 - double at the front of building - the sea view was just what you needed in the mornings when you get up! The breakfast was great and they even catered for my restrictive diet - very personal service.
Overall the B&B was spotlessly clean and had everything and more you would expect from booking at a small and attentive place.
Parking is very restrictive in St Ives so this B&B having a parking space for each room is a real bonus.
When we come back to visit Atlantic Heights will be the first call we make.
Well Done to the management (Marilyn & Reuben) & Thank You
