3Porthminster is a lovely b&b, with a warm and friendly atmosphere. The guest lounge on the ground floor has comfortable chairs and a selection of reading materials. Out the front is a timber deck with chairs and tables though we didn't have time to use it during our stay. Our room was spacious and had a sideways view of the water. Recommended.

Tips:

It's a 5-10 minute walk downhill to the waterfront and cafes, restaurants, shops etc. Be aware the return walk is uphill. We had a hire car which we could leave at the front of the b&b, and easy exit from the town for day trips.

The warm hospitality combined with a well kept and exceptionally clean room contributed to a very enjoyable time. Soundproofing between rooms was good and with the large and comfortable bed sleep was peaceful and undisturbed.

Tips:

The new extension at Tate St Ives means this is a 'must visit' when in St Ives. It has transformed the gallery. The Barbara Hepworth Museum is a joy to see, her spirit lives on in the garden.

We recently returned from a 6 night stay at 3 Porthminster and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We were met by a friendly & welcoming Lynn on our early arrival & was able to park our car on site prior to check-in. As it was too early for our room to be ready, Lynn kindly offered to send us a text to advise us when we could check in, which was much appreciated. The B & B is a lovely, well kept house with wonderful views over St Ives. We had room 2, a small but really nice double with sea views over the roof tops. The breakfasts were very good, plentiful with a special mention for John's homemade mixed berry compote. We found both John & Lynn lovely, friendly & helpful hosts - always on hand to answer our queries. We would not hesitate to book a return stay. Thank you John & Lynn for a lovely holiday

Tips:

Lovely walk to Clodgey Point along the coast path towards Zennor. We spotted a seal pup in a small cove en-route. Fantastic meals at Cafe Pasta & Blas Burgerworks.

Lovely place to stay for us as we like to get out and about with minimal fuss .. Hosts were there when if needed but left us un harassed to come and go . Convenient for the town and restaurants but not the noise. The room was nicely furnished with all the necessary requirements and the shower was good with no water restriction. Happy to stay again if the visiting area

Tips:

We used 3porthminster as a base and visited Landend , The Lizard and other great places all within easy reach of St Ives . A drink in The Sloop was a must and there are a lot of nice local restaurants to choose from for a nice evening meal ..

I cant believe this is only a 3 star place. The Victorian property is very well decorated with interesting artwork and pieces and some original features. Location is superb and the hosts are faultless. Will stay there again.

Tips:

Two minute walk to the beach and 5 to the local town centre. Recommend live music venues and Barbara Heptworth a must. Pay attention to the unique colour of St. Ives sunlight and I would recommend the bistro in the town centre.

A delightful stay in lovely St.Ives made all the more enjoyable by the warm welcome we received from Lynne and the attention to detail she gave to ensure we had all we needed - even down to recommending local restaurants and places to visit. Breakfast menu is chosen the evening before and was ready as soon as we appeared in the dining room - nicely cooked and with plenty of choice along with tea, coffee, fruit juices, cereals, toast and fresh fruit. Our bedroom (No. 1) overlooked the front of the house with wonderful big bay windows giving views over the town and down to the sea. Lynne also ensured we had a parking space (off road) and, had the need arisen, would have been able to move our car should it have blocked anyone in. 3 Porthminster is about 5 minutes walk from the town centre and harbour with all its galleries, shops, pubs and restaurants. Truly a little Cornish gem. We'll be back !! Thank you Lynne.

Tips:

Make the boat trip to Seal Island on the Dolly P - but try to go at low tide as this is when the seals are more likely to be basking on the rocks. Tickets available at the harbour near the lifeboat station. If you love open air theatre, the Minack Theatre at Porthcurno is a must. The views from St.Michael's Mount are wonderful but, again, go at low tide and enjoy the amazing walk along the causeway to the island - return by the regular boat service if the tide is in - £2 per adult per trip (plus a charge to enter the Castle and gardens if you wish). Another (quirky) favourite of ours is The Potters Shop in Fore Steet, St.Ives - pick up a genuine Cornish Pisky !!

Hosts were extremely welcoming and made us feel at home right from the start. We stayed in room 3 which had a great view down over St Ives. Our room was immaculate, and had a very comfortable bed. The cooked breakfast was really good, and there was lots of choice. The 'communal' fridge was a great bonus and it was brilliant being able to have fresh milk with our cuppas in the room. Could find nothing to fault at all - a great stay, thank you.

Tips:

We stayed in August, so the town of St Ives was very, very busy - definitely need to book in advance if you are wanting to eat there in the evenings. We had a really nice meal at The Badger Inn in Lelant - only a short drive away from St Ives. We also found a gorgeous little tea-room in a tiny place called Coombe, on the edge of the lovely Tehidy Country Park, we had an awesome cream tea there - they have a great choice of food and drink at very reasonable prices in a lovely setting (sorry don't know it's name - but it's right on the entrance to the country park at the south-western tip on the park's map) and it will apparently stay open throughout the winter too, though then only at weekends.

This house isn‘t only an B&B. For me in my vacation, it was a romantic, warm and clean home. Lynn and John are very good and lovely hosts. They had always „an ear for me“ and were very courteous. They helped with tips and deeds. There house is very lovingly designed and they also appreciate little things. Whether it was a good-smelling Soap in the bathroom, the biscuit on the tea tray or the nicely designed room. Breakfast in the morning was always fresh and delicious for every taste. If I visit Cornwall again, then I would like to stay at 3 porthminster again!!!

Friendly, helpful proprietors. Bright, immaculately clean accommodation. Very good breakfast with wide choice (not greasy) - homemade compote delicious. Efficient shower. Elevated position means great views but quite hard work for older or less able visitors; however, taxis are plentiful and not too expensive and there are buses during the day (not in the evening).

Tips:

Good restaurants: Beach Restaurant and Porthminster Kitchen by harbour - mainly fish, average prices; Porthminster Beach Cafe - excellent, quite expensive. Worth seeing Penwith Gallery (as well as Tate & Barbara Hepworth Museum & Garden).

Great B&B, lovely light room on top floor with very comfy bed and nice view of the sea from one of the windows. Breakfast was very nice too. Lynn was most welcoming and helpful. Didn't meet John, would have been nice if he had come out and said hello. Overall a lovely stay.

Tips:

This property is a little way up a hilly street if you're not the fittest but certainly good workout and nice views.

Lovely place, definitely the cleanest place we have stayed in. Comfy bed. We enjoyed the walk from town but if you are not very fit this could be a problem very hilly. Location wise though brilliant 5 min walked into the main centre. Lynne who runs he b& b is loely so friendly and tentative. Breakfast very good, although we would have preferred a later time. Sometimes on hold it's nice ce to have a lay in

Tips:

We had a great time in the centre, boat trip to seal island was nice only 1 hour trip but great to see the seals. We went in a couple of places each night to see live music and had a great time. We ate at the firehouse with a great view from the window, lovely and peppers Italian was good also would recommend both. Silvia cafe at the end near the pier brilliant food and local Gin cocktails. We will be back

You could choose what you like to have for breakfast and all of it is freshly made by Lynn. We can recommend this B&B and would Love to come again to this lovely place.

Made very welcome upon arrival. Breakfast was excellent. Although I only had the cooked breakfast there were other choices available. Our room (3) was very nice with a lovely view of the town.

Tips:

If you pick room 3 or 4 be ready for the stairs as it's at the top of the house. The Beach Restaurant and Mermaid are excellent places to eat, everywhere we ate in St Ives was great but these two stood out for us. Do go and see the Minack Theatre and visit Lands End as they are both really close to each other. The Barbara Hepworth Museum was a nice find and worth a visit. We shall be returning again in the future.

Hi Lynn. Thank you for a wonderful stay at your B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and experience with you. I have no suggestions on any improvements as our time with you was fantastic in all ways. Sorry about the hair dryer and fire alarms

Tips:

Our 4 night stay at 3Porthminster was fantastic and Lynn is a wonderful host. Before our stay there were a couple of emails and her communication was excellent with prompt friendly and courteous responses. We stayed in room 3 which had amazing views of St.Ives and I believe other rooms also have great scenery to look out on. A full English Breakfast was delicious (as well as continental options) and made to order each morning. The location is brilliant. The hill into town is steep but short, and legs get used to them in a day or so. 3Porthminster also offers car parking, and parking in St.Ives can be an issue. It’s a great home base to tour South Cornwall and only a short distance to many local attractions. We would recommend 3Porthminster to anyone considering quality accommodation in the region.

We were given a friendly welcome from the host on arrival and shown our room which was beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard. It was light, bright and airy with two big windows, one with sea views. The room was spotlessly clean too. Breakfast was cooked to order with cereal, fresh fruit, homemade fruit compot & yogurt to help ourselves to. All lovely! We would definitely stay again.

Tips:

The B&B is situated at the top of the town so it is close to walk down to the town where there are plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants to choose from, as well as the lovely beaches. sensible shoes are needed as the roads are really steep down from the B&B.

This B&B is ideally located and within easy walking distance of harbour and town centre. The walk back up to the accommodation is relatively steep but the less able and willing can always get a taxi. The quietness of the location compared to the bustle of the town centre especially during peak periods outweighs the incline! Our room had a lovely view over the entire harbour and town centre and It was very comfortable and spotlessly clean ...and there was always plenty of hot water for washing and showering, etc. The delicious breakfast was freshly cooked by the host and served with a smile by the hostess! Would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Tips:

Being a popular resort there is wealth of eating places scattered throughout the town and seafront so difficult to recommend any in particular. However, if you want something different in the evening we found a little gem of a restaurant called The Hidden Kitchen which offers fine dining, again to be highly recommended.

I couldn't have picked a better guest house! We stayed in room 3, which had a good view of the harbour and a very comfy bed. There was also the benefit of a parking space, and was within easy walking distance into town. The owner, Lynn, was very friendly and helpful, and breakfast was tasty and well presented. All in all we had a pleasant stay in very tasteful surroundings. I can highly recommend this guest house, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Tips:

As we were self catering we didn't go out all the time, but can highly recommend 'The Queens Hotel ' for food and 'The Hub ' on the harbour for food and atmosphere. Give the Albatross (fish and chips) a miss though! We just love Cornwall, and in particular St Ives. Go to Sennen Cove and Gwiithian to look at Godrevy lighthouse, and try and leave those spectacular seas!

Our 4th visit to 3 Porthminster. Excellent B&B. Very good hosts. On site parking. Spotless room. Powerful shower. Tasty breakfast. Sensible prices. We will definately be back!

Tips:

Beware the feathered threat! The seagulls around the harbour are extremely aggressive if you have any type of food. Rent a deckchair on the harbour beach all day and watch the birds strike. The Curry Garden served an excellent meal. The Seafood Platter for 2 at The Sloop was very good too but the beer and cider in there has London prices. All of the beaches are very clean and sandy. Parking is a problem in the town so head for the leisure centre and get the bus down and back unless you're particularly fit.

Porthminster B & B was very welcoming. Our hosts responded positively to any requests and gave helpful advice about the area's activities and facilities. In every respect it was a delightful stay. A car is a distinct advantage for out-of-town visiting, but you can walk into town quite easily if you are mobile.

Tips:

The Barbara Hepworth Museum and the Bernard Leech Pottery are well worth a visit. While the Tate St Ives is a splendid modern building, the exhibits are only for those who like rather specialised contemporary art. Places to eat include the Porthmoer Cafe and the Porthminster Kitchen which are both highly recommended, as is the Backstreet Bistro in St Andrew's Street, St Ives.

A lovely period house with character, not too many people staying so a very personal touch. we were able to come and go as we pleased. Lovely welcome, excellent breakfast and wonderful attention to detail. Comfortable room, spotlessly clean, lovely fluffy white towels and quality bedding.

Tips:

Lovely walks along the coast, plenty of places to eat and drink, lovely art galleries. The lifeboat Inn is very good, also, the Harbour Pool club which has lovely views of the harbour and beach. Do go on the train to St Erth and back as its so picturesque.

Although the walk was slightly steep into town, we managed very well and I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone.

Lovely accommodation; close walking distance to town & beach. Greeted by friendly & welcoming owner, Lynn. Who, from onset offered to carry our luggage to our room on the second floor! Room & bed comfortable, with well stocked complimentary tea/coffee tray. Bathroom very spacious. Breakfasts delicious & filling. Tariff reasonably priced, considering location & amenities. Would definitely recommend family & friends to stay. Hope to return next year to our favourite UK holiday destination! Thank you Lynn for an enjoyable stay.

Tips:

Short walk to shops & beaches. Highly recommend The Mermaid; fab place to enjoy some wonderful fish/ steak meals. It's tucked away, up a side street, off Fish Street (on the beach side) Really worth finding...book in advance; very busy place! Plenty of places to eat, to suit all tastes. Has a mix of high street shops, as well as quirky boutiques.

We stayed in room 1, which was breathtakingly beautiful and immaculate. The view from the room was stunning and there was lots of room and storage which made the stay so much more comfortable. The service was so personal, attention to detail really made us feel special. We got married whilst we were there and Lynn and John decorated our room with balloons, bunting and love heart chocolates even leaving us a poem... So thoughtful. The breakfast was very well organised and so yummy especially the thyme tomatoes! Having stayed in st Ives before we had experienced problems with the parking so it was a relief to find somewhere with parking! Only a 5 minute walk into the shops and restaurants. Perfect location.

Tips:

A few restaurants to eat are, the Hub, Alba, the tea rooms, Blas Burger, Porthmier, all fabulous. The Barbara Hepworth museum is a must, as is a drive to Cape Cornwall.

Our room had lots of space for all of our things and was always cleaned on a daily basis! Breakfast was gorgeous and never had to wait for it due to a form we had to fill in the night before about what we'd like and what time! Thankyou so much for a lovely stay!

The only thing I would grumble about is the bath didn't have a plug so after a long day of walking around you can't have a nice relaxing soak!

Tips:

The rum and crab shack and the seafood cafe are both very nice places to eat although book early to go seafood cafe as it gets very busy.

Thank you for your review, we're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed our breakfast. We source our food as locally as we can to support the community we love. Thank you for your feedback about the bath - we would happily have given you the plug if you had wished! It's not left in there as a matter of course due to an unfortunate incident where our home was flooded and for this reason the room is advertised as having a shower only. We do hope to see you both again in the future. Best wishes, Lynn & John

My wife has a knee problem otherwise I would have scored Location as 4. We had the twin room which was a little small but the very best had been made of the space available.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! And thank you for taking the time to post up a review. We're pleased you've recognised that we've tried to make the most of our space in our twin room. Like much of our lovely town we are an uphill walk from the centre which means that our location affords us panoramic views and also the benefit of off street parking for our guests, a bonus in St Ives! We look forward to seeing you both again. Best wishes, Lynn & John

Lovely B&B, spacious room (room 1) although shower small and took a while to drain. Breakfast very tasty, friendly service and helpful with advice. Would definitely recommend.

Tips:

Book restaurants in advance at weekends, a trip to Porthleven to Rick Steins restaurant highly recommended.

We loved exploring St Ives on foot, leaving the Car parked safely in the drive at 3 Porthminster.
