Don't hesitate to book the room with panoramic sea view. Any other room is probably also nice as it is a beautiful house. The owner Susan is very welcoming, nice and helpful. And the food is great, delicious fruit salad! There is parking close to the building and for everyones well being the car should stay there when you go...

After seeing great reviews for Channings we decided to book for the bank holiday weekend. We can happily say that the reviews were accurate! Susan and Marcus run a fantastic B&B. We stayed in Room 1 which was clean and had an amazing view out over the water. Breakfast was outstanding. The location is up on a hill which offers...

Stayed here for 3 nights in a beautifully decorated single room with a spacious bathroom and sea views. It was spotlessly clean, breakfast was delicious and Channings is only a 5 minutes walk from the town centre and harbour. A special thanks goes to Susan who gave me a really warm welcome and was always happily ready to help you...

We had a great week at the Channings in lovely St Ives. Susan and Marcus really looked after us and are so friendly. Our room was really clean and fresh, fantastic breakfasts and location is excellent - the beaches and town just a few minutes walk. Already looking forward to returning next year!!!

There isn't a great deal to add in praise of the Channings. Having read the excellent reviews that guests have given to the B & B, I can only agree with them. We ,as a couple, stayed at the Channings for two weeks in July, occupying room 1. This is a large room that has unsurpassed views over St. Ives...

Our family of four stayed for a week in late July and couldn't believe just how fantastic Channings is. Located on a hill above the station and the golden Porthminster beach, the B&B is easily accessible for those without a car and is just a few minutes' walk from the centre of St Ives. Our well-appointed room (6) was ideal...
