Excellent hotel, spotlessly clean and probably the best cooked breakfast we've ever had. Put it this way, a couple of years ago we splashed out on a big anniversary and booked a night at the Savoy in London, and the breakfast at the Old Vicarage was better than that! Home made yogurt and "granola", fresh fruit etc. also available, served... More

I had a fabulous stay in St. Ives & was pleased to retreat to The Old Vicarage, situated on the outskirts of the St Ives' hubbub for the most comfortable & quiet night's sleep I've had in ages! The breakfast was wonderful with great choices - I loved the homemade fruit compote & had a very satisfying cooked breakfast too!... More

Stayed for one night only but enjoyed the atmosphere and helpfulness of the staff, the room was comfortable and nicely decorated. The breakfast was very good both the full English and especially the Smoked Haddock and poached eggs.Would certainly stay again.

Lovely stay at The Old Vicarage with Dianne & Martin who could not have been more welcoming. Extremely comfortable room; superb breakfast choice and standard - other B&Bs could learn a lesson. Superb position just out of the town in extensive grounds with copious amount of car parking. An appetite enhancing walk into town on an evening or a bus... More

What an absolutely fabulous stay me and my family had, we could not fault a single thing from the time we arrived to the time we left. The staff were so polite and made you feel welcome no matter the time of the day or night. This was our first trip to this bed and breakfast and we are most... More

Driving up to this you would be right to be confused, how could there be a B&B among all these houses but then you arrive at the top of the road and see The Old Vicarage sign on the left, once you have parked your car in the large car park you find yourself faced with a quaint 150 year... More

When you're invited to a wedding in St Ives and you live in Walsall you think "it's gonna be expensive!" However, The Old Vicarage was far from it. Very reasonable. Comfy and old-fashioned but not outdated. Beautiful room and so peaceful.Ideally placed to take the back road into the town. Breakfast to die for and, an honesty bar! What more... More

A perfectly nice and quiet spot within walking distance from the city centre. If you felt like taking a bus, there is shuttle buses two minutes walk away. Nice rooms, really good breakfasts. Nice and helpful hosts.

The breakfasts were just superb with plenty of fresh choices everyday. The bed was so comfortable it was a case of once asleep, you don't wake up until alarm clocks go off. The place itself is really interesting in historic value and has been turned into a b&b superbly. The couple who own it really look after you and are... More
