We've been coming here for years and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. We could not be better looked after. Angela and Barrie are the best hosts you could wish for - so welcoming and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. All the rooms are spotlessly clean, with great views, and the breakfasts are great. Can't wait to come back...

Probably my best ever guesthouse/ bnb stay. Hosts were lovely, breakfast was really nice and the room was very tidy, with a fab view of the harbour. Would definitely stay again. We had no problem whatsoever finding the place and it's in a perfect spot just a few moments from all the restaurants and stuff you will want to do...

Spent two nights at Rivendell and was really pleased with the high standard of accommodation. The house is extremely clean and the room we had was modern and beautifully decorated with a new ensuite. The mirror in the en suite was particularly pleasing to my daughter, as it was "like a film star" with touch sensors to operate the lights...

This is a lovely B&B located well above the heart of the town - so it's well away from the touristy bits. It's an easy enough walk down the hill, and the views from the upper rooms are spectacular. The B&B can be a challenge to find. Navigating St. Ives is no picnic in general (in a car), and finding...

We have stayed at the Rivendell on four occasions of the past five years. Angela and Barrie are great. They are really helpful and Angela is always on hand at breakfast to advise on different places you may wish to visit, while Barrie is busy cooking your lovely breakfasts. The Rivendell is a wonderful choice of accommodation and we wouldn't...
