We had a lovely, clean, comfortable room with a sea view. The b&b is located within walking distance of St Ives town centre or a short bus ride. Car parking is available at the rear of the property. Peter & Heidi are very friendly, welcoming hosts and provided us with a delicious breakfast with plenty of choices.

We stayed in St. Ives for one night. It is hard to find the car park, it is actually behind the B&B, reachable via a small single lane road. But that was the only little trouble we stumbled over, the rest of our stay was superb. Nice people, clean room with great views, smoked haddock for breakfast, what more do... More
