A group of us stayed at the Regent over the New Year for the New Years Eve celebration in St Ives. The owners of the hotel Keith and Sandi looked after us really well, with lots of very thoughtful extras. Despite the undeniably plain exterior and the compact rooms this hotel offers excellent service. Everything was spotlessly clean, the sea...

My wife, family and I have stayed at Keith and Sandy Varnal's B/B in the 1980s, 1990s. and again in October of 2016. The property is in the best possible location as the view of St.Ives and the bay below are spectacular. The rooms and for that matter the entire property are spotlessly clean. Keith Varnal's breakfast is wonderful, and...

We stayed at the Regent last week. We had a nice room with an amazing view. The room was very quiet and we had a good night sleep. After a great breakfast the hosts helped us with our travel plans, which was excellent and also very kind. Overall, a very nice experience.

Our second time here, and already trying to plan another visit. Keith and Sandi are so friendly and welcoming. We were again fortunate to have a room with stunning harbour views, this alone is worth the cost. But you also get excellent cooked to order breakfasts, a parking space (trust me that is VERY important), and easy access to the...

Just shared a delightful week with friends in St Ives, staying at the Regent. The proprietors, Sandi and Keith, offered such welcoming hospitality and much helpful advice as to many beautiful places to visit. The room had a stunning view of the harbour and over the rooftops of this lovely little town. It really was the view one would never...

This summer I walked the entire South West Coast Path to raise money for FORCE and Over and Above, two South West charities that support cancer patients and their families.

After staying the previous night at Tregenna castle resort we called into the Derwent on the off chance and we're delighted to be offered a room. On checking in Keith informed us there was availability for 4 night if required which we quickly accepted. We stayed in room 3 which wasn't one of the sea view rooms but it was...
