We have been staying at the Old Vicarage for the past 31 years. It has kept its wonderful old world charm through all that time. The bedrooms are lovely and warm and very comfortable and the traditional Cornish breakfast is excellent. Our hosts always make us feel very special and welcome and getting away to the Old Vicarage is one of our yearly treats.

Tips:

You need to concentrate a little bit to find the road up to the Old Vicarage - Parc-an-Creet is an ordinary suburban road and the entrance to the hotel is tricky to find on your first visit

Really enjoyed our stay st the Old Vicarage! A lovely place where we were able to relax despite a family funeral. Great service, a lovely room and wonderful breakfast. The only thing I would say is that you’re not easy to find on google which means you may be loosing out on new business. (Which is a real shame as fabulous stay!) might be worth looking at how to raise your profile/join booking.com or similar.

Would definitely recommend to friends and family and have done already!

This was for my wife’s 65 birthday as we had last visited many many years ago. Everything was fabulous from the warm welcome on arrival to departure from Martin supplying us with an atlas to the wonderfully cooked breakfast by Dianne plus a lovely honesty bar - a lot of the hotel chains could learn such a lot from here Bedroom was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom - how you got all that in a small space amazed me and the toiletries were lovely. Hopefully we will be back sooner rather than later

Tips:

There are so many good restaurants in St Ives and surrounding are Dianne has listed some in the book in reception So many places to visit Mousehole, the Eden Project all the beaches in St Ives

It was very plesant stay for two nights. Very quiet and cozy. The breakfast was excellent, and the staffs are friendly and helpful. We forgot one personal stuff in our room but it was kindly sent to us by post immediately. It has been delivered. Thank you for providing a very good service.

Tips:

It took 15 minutes to go to the centre of St. Ives and 20 minutes to come back to tge hotel on foot, and it was a bit steep. But it was perfect for us to do a little excercise especially after a big dinner.

We enjoyed a very comfortable stay at the Old Vicarage. The rooms are spotless, very generous tea and coffee facilities and the opportunity to collect fresh milk for beverages is a lovely touch. Bathroom amenities provided are of a high quality and the staff very attentive and welcoming. Finally the breakfasts are the best encountered on our 30 days of travelling- very good choice and perfectly executed. Would highly recommend

Tips:

Just wandering around St Ives is a pleasure. It has a beautiful harbour and quaint shops. There are also lots of other towns and villages in a close vicinity to drive to or you can hop on a bus tour.

We loved this place. It's wonderful to come upon it so unexpectedly; the building and garden are marvellous, there's a help-yourself bar and sitting room downstairs, and the breakfast was absolutely great. It's not the cheabest B&B we've stayed in, but may be the one with the best value for money.

Tips:

You can walk down to the beaches and restaurants of St. Ives in about 20-30 minutes (depending on the beach); even better, you can also easily go out into the fields and reach the coastal path in about 20 minutes.

Such a friendly welcome and relaxed surroundings. Breakfast was the best I've ever tasted at a B&B. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very old fashioned and quaint bedroom with perhaps a bit too many clashing patterns for some, reminded me of sleeping at my nans as a child, which wasn't a bad memory, far from it, but may not be to everyone's taste. Access to St Ives a walk down the hill, plenty of taxis waiting to bring you bavk at the end of the night if you dont fancy the 20ish min walk, reasonably priced and regular too.

This was a friendly, clean and comfortable B and B. The food was good with special diets taken into consideration. A 15 minute walk to the beach may be too much for some but a cheap taxi service sorted this problem. Free parking was a special added bonus. There was nothing that I could fault with our room or the service we received.

Without doubt this is one of the best B&B's. This was our third stay and as usual we were warmly welcomed by Dianne and Martin, the proprietors. The premises and the grounds are absolutely beautiful and provide a wonderful back drop to a great holiday. The staff are very friendly and do a great job! The atmosphere is so special that it really does feel like home. All respect for Dianne and Martin who do a great job here - a true example of excellent hospitality. Note: The breakfasts are second to none!!

Tips:

We love this part of Cornwall to go exploring and we would recommend that you buy a good travel guide to make the most of your holiday.

Thanks Loki (and Martin) for washing the car. It looks great. Good luck Loki on earning enough money to go to Tanzania with your classmates. We appreciated the suggestions for meals and the ride into town so we wouldn't be late for the Porthminster Beach Cafe reservation. Not having a reliable internet was frustrating but I understand that Martin is resolving that problem. The reading lights were great in the bedroom. Thanks for that. I appreciated the bar and the honor system.

Tips:

This B&B is a 20 minute downhill walk to the center of town and a beautiful beach. The B&B is peaceful. The breakfast offered both hot and cold dishes and the choices were ample. The hosts were friendly and helpful.

Old well kept house. Rooms and bathrooms spotlessly clean and decorated in sympathy with age of house. House kept very warm. Lovely garden. Excellent breakfast, homemade granola first class and Cornish breakfast made to order. Taxi into harbour only £6.

Tips:

Old Vicarage is surrounded by houses and gate into it can be missed. Drive in and gardens very cleverly give impression the house is on it's own in the country. We had an excellent meal at Caffe Pasta in the harbour and very good lunch at the Beach Restaurant also in the harbour. New Tate gallery worth a visit

Dianne and Martin were so welcoming and helpful, they clearly love their home and grounds. Peter was super attentive at breakfast. We felt at home from the minute we arrived which was great. We were in Room 5 with views over the garden, we loved the décor and really beautiful bedding, plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. The bathroom was well equipped with toiletries and the blue and white Victorian toilet was so unusual. The breakfasts and packed lunches were excellent. We were only here for 3 nights but would have stayed longer and hope to return in the future.

Tips:

Cliff top walks are lovely. The Seafood café in St Ives is well worth a visit, there is an excellent range of fresh fish as well as pork, chicken or steak. A visit to the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Gardens is a must. If you are able to time your visit to a guided 'tour' then do so it brings everything to life. This is a small garden but so much to see and very tranquil. If you want a good beach with plenty of space for all try Carbis Bay a short drive or train journey away. The Eden Project is about 90 mins away, expensive for a family and a long day particularly for the old or young - Take a packed lunch. The Lost Gardens of Heligan is supposed to be brilliant but we didn't have time to visit. The Old Vicarage is a fair walk uphill from the town. The walk into town is pleasant but do take a taxi (£5) or bus (£2) back - we did walk back once, it is steeper than you think and our legs ached for days!

Charming accommodation in a beautiful garden setting. Very friendly and helpful staff. Spacious comfortable room with lots of little extra touches such as the heated towel rail in the bathroom and the biscuits which were a welcome touch to have with a cup of tea, to name just a couple. One of the best breakfasts I have experienced.

Tips:

Allow plenty of time to explore the surrounding countryside, the cobbled streets and Tate St Ives, or sample one of the local Cornish pasties while enjoying the view over the bay. Make sure to ride the scenic train between St Ives and St Erth....more than once. It's awesome!

Lovely place to stay with gorgeous bedrooms beautifully decorated, with tea and coffee making facilities, fresh milk and bottled water all available on arrival, with very posh biscuits all complimentary. Wonderful friendly welcome, both by email in advance of the visit (with excellent tips for arrival and routes to avoid due to traffic), and in person by Dianne. The Vicarage has bar facilities, very nice to be able to have a quiet drink at the end of the evening. Lovely breakfast. The Vicarage is not in the centre of St Ives, a 15 walk away, but it is therefore wonderfully quiet and peaceful and away from the melee of central St Ives, with easy parking. Highly recommended, I wish we could have stayed much longer

Tips:

Coast walk to Zennor Barbara Hepworth Museum

A lovely hotel which is a real haven & one immediately felt very much at home. Dianne & her staff are very kind & considerate whilst allowing space / privacy. The hotel has a very interesting decor /furnishing so any minimalists will be in for a shock- I loved it . The breakfasts were superb with many home made products on the menu . Highly recommended

Tips:

Be prepared for 15/20 mins walk down to SI - going down is fine but climbing back is a challenge . There is a bus service about 100 yards away at the SI Ives Rugby Club during the day & probably longer in the season. The Tate & Barbara Hepworth Galleries. Most of the restaurants offer good modern menus & excellent service but I found the Porthmeor Beach Cafe to be outstanding. outstanding

Very friendly and nice staff, clean and beautiful rooms. Excellent breakfast. I had a very happy time in this b&b and I'd recommend it to other travellers.

Tips:

The place is only 10-15 walking distance from the city centre. The area is very safe and it's possible to get to city centre also during night by walking.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Old Vicarage; the owners were extremely friendly and helpful and the location is ideal for exploring all of St Ives. The rooms are light and airy and the standard of cleanliness is second to none; my wife remarked 'this is the cleanest room I've ever stayed in'!

Lovely warm and friendly reception on arrival by Dianne. Grand old building, full of interesting features with large, private parking area. Grand breakfast room in which were served a good choice of breakfasts - very tasty too! Bedroom was clean, tidy and comfortable.

Tips:

Walk along the rugged Cornish coast to spot seals, birds of prey and then back to the beautiful sandy beaches with turquoise waves rolling in. Go back in time walking through the old town and have a drink beside the harbor. We particularly liked the Seafood Cafe for evening dinner. Great short stay.

A beautiful house, a real home from home. Lovely welcome, superb breakfast, we will certainly stay here again on our next visit.

Tips:

As we arrived in St Ives earlier than anticipated we parked at Lelant Saltlands and caught the train into town. Lovely views right along the coast, not having to drive into town was also a bonus! Ate at "The Seafood Cafe" which was excellent. Walked part of the coastal path, quite a challenging section but stunning scenery.

Lovely Edwardian ambience but with modern facilities.....a lovely place to stay with a great commodious bedroom room and also a lovely lounge and dining room. The breakfasts are excellent with a great choice and the service friendly and efficient. Certainly a place to re-visit and enjoy.

Tips:

My main tip is there is so much to see and so much to enjoy at all levels you will love every minute.

Dianne and staff helpful, friendly, unobtrusive but there if needed. They make you feel welcome. The breakfasts are wonderful and a good choice of menu. The house itself is very interesting with attention to detail.

Tips:

Fair walk into centre of St Ives but steep walk back. Old Vicarage is a good location for driving to and parking, which is a plus for the location as it is difficult to drive and park in the centre of St Ives. Location good for driving out to other areas. St Ives itself has plenty to see and do with many places to eat.

Very welcoming and relaxed feeling--we were made to feel at home. Excellent cooked breakfast--wide choice and very well cooked. Rooms spotless and beds very comfortable. 4 for location due to long walk uphill from the town, otherwise quiet area and pleasant garden. E-mail communication prior to arrival helpful and very thoughtful.

Tips:

We enjoyed two meals at The Queen--Sunday lunch being very good. Also enjoyed a meal at the restaurent on the sea front at Porthmeor beach where they were especially good with young children. Service and food very good at both venues. Booking ahead is worth doing, and is essential at the Fish Cafe.

We were delighted with The Old Vicarage. A quiet location with space to sit outside in tree lined gardens. Ample parking space allowing freedom to leave your car behind and so not have to battle for parking in St Ives centre. All rooms were clean and tidy, the staff friendly, helpful and available. The breakfast was magnificent with a wide choice available to suit all, set you up for the day. The location is about 15 to 20 minutes walk down hill into St Ives, but there is ample local transport e.g bus from the Rugby club 200 metres away (£1) also local taxis available at reasonable prices. Do the walking if your able.

Tips:

There are many local restaurants to visit, depends on your taste. Would recommend Blas Burger normally a first come first served small restaurant specialising in great burgers, brill. For something special Porthminster Kitchen, excellent food and service with good views over the harbour. Lots to choose fromin St Ives, for large parties 6 and over suggest do your homework and try and book a few weeks before you travel.

Our room was spacious and clean and we enjoyed the generous and tasty breakfasts. The location was a bit of a walk from town, but it allowed for excellent parking and a quiet place to stay. We did not mind the walk as it was scenic and allowed us to walk our dinner off in the evening!

Tips:

Be prepared for a bit of a walk into town and to the beach area. It is fairly steep. but is a nice bit of exercise if you like a walk. Also, it is a fairly cheap cab ride if you don't want to walk.
