Susan and Marcus, two wonderful hosts, made our stay quite memorable. We decided at 4 in the evening to go a week's vacation and started scouring for accommodation in St Ives and by 9pm we were on our way.
Just 5 mins uphill (not too steep) from the train station and overlooking the sea from some rooms. And if you know what a BnB is, Channings will pretty much defeat that. They did not have a double room but assured that the room they would provide will suffice and it really did. Bath was clean with good shower (a rarity in BnBs).
Breakfast was really nice to set our day. The main bus station is 2 mins walk and frequent bus service connects St Ives to all other towns and attractions-Land's End, Penzance, Truro etc
There is a small bar near the reception and you can enjoy a pleasant evening with other guests after all the day's work.
Wifi was a bit shaky but I gathered that it is being worked upon. Lot of books in your room and in the bar; you can grab and spend your day at one of the 3 beaches in St Ives.
Ideal hideout which I look forward to returning !
