I wanted to stay in St Ives and use it as a base to explore Cornwall. I picked Rivendell because it was the closest available to the harbour and the price was as much as I wanted to pay. First impressions on arrival were the pleasing decor and general cleanliness of the property. I was met by Barrie who immediately...

Family atmosphere in the breakfast room, breakfast lovingly prepared with fresh fruit and more. St Ives harbour is only a five minute walk away.

However if you like a lighter...

Angela and Barrie were the most welcoming and accommodating hosts we could have asked for. They brought my mother a birthday candle and card for her birthday; researched cafes and galleries for us based on the interests we expressed; and just generally ensured that we were looked after at all times. Their house is lovely, clean and cozy and breakfasts...

Lovely comfortable B&B. Angela a great host and Barrie cooks a nice breakfast. We were in room three around the back. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Harbour close but a steep walk down, but it is St Ives! Nice and close to the train and bus stations. Will definetly book again.

You can't go wrong staying here. Barrie and Angela are the nicest hosts you will ever meet. Their place is very clean, kept up-to-date and always friendly. Beds are comfy, views are lovely & breakfast is yummy! One of the best B & B's left in St. Ives.
