Lovely place to stay! Very friendly helpful hosts who made us feel really welcome. Amazing breakfasts with huge variety of veggie & non veggie foods. Excellent location within a few minutes walk from the town. Would definitely stay there again and highly reccomend this B/B to others!

Tips:

Lots of super eating places. Particularly enjoyed fish meals at the Beach Restuarant in Warf St. overlooking the harbour! Sand Bar on Praa sands near Penzance was also a good place to eat plus super beach there! And check out the little cafe in St Ives owned by the B/B hosts! Great pasties, GF food etc.

The Olive Branch is the perfect place to stay in St Ives, a short stroll into town and with the added bonus of parking makes it ideal! Room 3 is lovely with a beautiful sea view. All rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfast is so delicious. The hosts are so friendly and warm, always so welcoming and lovely to stay with. We visit St Ives every year and have stayed at The Olive Tree two years in a row with next year already booked, it’s perfect for us!

Tips:

Favourite restaurants are Caffe Pasta, Beer & Bird, Sea Food Cafe and Beach restaurant. Love the Beach bar for a chocolate cocktail and Balcony bar has a good choice of cocktails too! Beer & Bird have the best range of ales - and their food is delicious if you love burgers, nachos and everything topped with melted cheese!! Places to visit - depends on the length of your stay - if you’re only staying for a weekend you’ll have plenty to do in St Ives. If you’re staying for a week, I’d recommend visiting Padstow, Watergate Bay, Sennen Cove, Minack Theatre, Porth Levan, St Michaels Mount...the list goes on but they are our favourites.

I had a wonderful stay here. The owners were so welcoming and friendly and gave me tips on where to visit etc. The room itself was lovely and clean with everything I wanted and a fantastic sea view! I found this to be in the perfect location as it is situated just out of the main town away from the hustle and bustle, yet a 5-10 minute walk away down to the town and closer still to the beautiful beach. An added bonus was the available parking at the property. Thank you for a lovely stay - I will definitely be back!

Lovely guest house with super nice hosts and an amazing breakfast. Clean, good quality throughout and well situated. Great value for money.

Tips:

Nothing not to like but, if possible, get one of the larger rooms, like room 3. We had room 4 and it was a bit small but we only booked the day before and that was all that was available.

It was our first visit to The Olive Branch, but you are greeted by Justin and Julie as if you have been going there for years. A lovely welcome on arrival and a much needed cup of tea and chocolate bar, are amongst the many little things that make this a lovely place to stay. Gorgeous breakfast, with plenty to choose from and served piping hot. Would definitely recommend this B & B , a great combination of being looked after whilst still doing what you want to do.

Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed with a tea and coffee and shown to our lovely room. The house was beautiful and felt like a home away from home. Our room was immaculately clean and the facilities were great. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice. It was also a chance to stroke George’s their gorgeous dog! Our hosts could not be more helpful with their local knowledge of what there was to see and do as well as were the best pubs were! I could not rate The Olive Branch high enough, fantastic location, lovely hosts and an overall great mini break away. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you.

Tips:

Just wander! The winding streets and cottages are very pretty and the views are stunning. The Rum and Crab Shack has really great food and good cocktails. The mulled cider at The Sloop Inn was delicious!

Friendly and homely B&B. Ours was nice ensuite room with the sea and St Ives 'island' visible over the rooftops. Impressive TV! The only negatives (both minor) were the heavy duvet (we used the bedspread instead, which was fine), and the somewhat cramped breakfast area. But neither of these issues are too significant and certainly wouldn't deter us from further visits.

Tips:

We like the Porthminster Kitchen (though not much vegetarian choice) with views over the harbour. Also, although a 'chain', Pizza Express has always been reliable (although do not take bookings so there could be a queue at busy times)

We enjoyed an amazing time at The Olive Branch. Julie and Justin made us so welcome, the breakfasts were wonderful with so much choice, the rooms were lovely and really comfortable. The location is fantastic too - perfect for our stay in St Ives. The Olive Branch, Julie, Justin and George of course helped to make our stay in St Ives a very happy and memorable one. Thank you so much!

Tips:

A walk from Porthminster, to the harbour then on round to Porthgwidden beach and then onto Porthmeor beach up onto the coastal path - there's a bit of everything to see Pen Olva hotel for a meal and also for the lovely views from their bar and roof top terrace Caffe Pasta - a lovely restaurant in the harbour A day on Porthgwidden beach - its sheltered and you can watch the seals swim by the rocks. The cafe is also great for a snack and drink

Beautiful B&B in perfect location for St Ives and surrounding areas, car parking a real bonus ! Bright, clean rooms with comfortable beds and everything you could need, serviced daily. We stayed for four days but wished it could have been longer. Delicious home cooked breakfast and nothing too much trouble. A really lovely, welcoming destination and we will definitely be back.

Tips:

Short walk to the rail branch line from St Ives to St Erth,well worth the train ride for the views of the coast along the way. Try the Ped N Olva for bar food, lovely views of the beach at sunset - good food.

Every meal we had was excellent - we ate at The Sloop, Pedn Olva hotel, Golden Lion, Indian restaurant, and the Lifeboat Inn. We found the staff everywhere we went were very friendly and helpful. Lots of lovely fresh fish dishes on the menus!

Wonderful hosts, fabulous breakfasts, and perfect for us. Such a warm welcome and we were made to feel very much at home. And thank you for recommending A-1 Cars - Aaron was terrific to deal with. Only one thing - the bed closest to the window in Room 2 is rather lumpy and (I just found out) made for uncomfortable sleeping for my sister.

Tips:

The busses are pretty easy for sightseeing tho one must pay close attention to the schedules and routes, and plan carefully. Do not miss St. Michael's Mount. Porthminster Beach Cafe is excellent food, right on the beach, with wonderful staff. Union House has the best mussels. Olive Branch has a great location for walking to so many things.

What a lovely B and B. Excellent balance of just the right things coupled with not being over burdened with rules and regulations. I felt very welcomed from the beginning of my stay to the end. My room was just right, enough facilities, gleaming bathroom and very comfy bed. Lots of choices for breakfast ( hearty!) and the little touches such as gluten free snack bars in my room for supper which I hadn't asked for but magically appeared. Plenty of milk and tea bags for cuppas in my room, there is nothing more annoying than having to eke out hot drink supplies. A lovely friendly couple and not forgetting gorgeous George the dog.

Tips:

I stayed as I was on a painting course but other guests were given tips about interesting places to see and good pubs/ places to eat. I had the heads up about a gluten free pasty supplier. You can't go to Cornwall and not have a Cornish Pasty!

Julie's full English breakfasts were fab, always piping hot and very tasty! Would highly recommend.

Tips:

Fab location, only a short walk to town which has a comprehensive range of eating places...something to suit everyone. Both Porthminster and Porthmeor beach cafes very good. Minack theatre at Porthcurno is something that should be on everyone's to-do list, absolutely stunning setting.

Just returned from a fantastic long weekend in St Ives for my birthday. From the moment we arrived, Justin, Julie and George gave us a very warm welcome. We stayed in Room 1, which was warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast choice was excellent and delicious too (the sausages were scrumptious!) - it was plainly evident that nothing was too much trouble as pretty much everyone ordered variations of the choices on the menu. This was our second stay at The Olive Branch and it has to be said (in our opinion) that Julie, Justin and George made our stay a much more enjoyable experience than the previous owners. We know now that we will always go back to stay at The Olive Branch because it was simply perfect. Coincidentally, Justin and I shared the same birthday and I was delighted to receive a birthday card from our hosts - a very nice touch I thought. Just book and experience great hospitality yourselves.

Tips:

We had an excellent meal at The Firehouse,so we would highly recommend anyone to go there.

Another short stay at The Olive Branch, always a warm welcome waiting from Julie and Justin where nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are fantastic with all diets catered for. I will be back and would thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting St Ives for its easy access on foot to the town. Parking is definitely a bonus.

Julie and Justin deserved the recommendation we were given via a friend - our room was lovely, bed very good, breakfasts scrumptious with a thoughtfully wide range of choices. Homemade vegetarian sausages a happy choice even for meat-eaters! For one of us the uphill return from the centre of town was a slight challenge, but that wouldn't put us off coming back to the Olive Branch, just want to get a bit fitter!

Tips:

Every restaurant we tried was good - town is packed out with a huge variety of places to eat. Good walks in either direction along the coast, both short and longer, and the harbour is beautiful

The stay was well worth the longish journey. The accommodation was excellent, the breakfast first class, the location was just right but above all Julie and Justin were the perfect hosts. Not forgetting George of course who made it all worth while. Thank you all, we shall be back. D & E

Tips:

There are plenty of very good eating places and shops. St. Ives is within easy reach of all parts of that section of Cornwall so a good base to start from. You don't have to go far to see what Cornwall has to offer, and it has loads.

Fabulous B&B in convenient location for town and beach and has parking. Steep hill from town ( it is St Ives) but at least on the bus route. Run by lovely friendly couple who have got the welcome friendly touch just right. Excellent choice at breakfast. Our only niggle would perhaps be an extra half hour on the breakfast times, but that is just us and doesn't detract from anything . Would definitely stay again.

Julie and Justin made us feel so at home. They were great to talk to, and they gave us invaluable travel itineraries for day trips. We had a lovely room at the front of the house with large bay windows. Our room was very nicely furnished and much detail had been given to the decor and lighting. We are so glad we stayed here and would recommend the Olive Branch to anyone.

Tips:

I wish I could have stayed longer in Cornwall because there is so much to see and do. We enjoyed St. Ives, Lands End, Lizard, Mousehole, St Michael's Mount, Trengwainton Gardens, and most of all the Minack Theater. There's a lot of variety and each place is as special and scenic as the next.

There are lots of different restaurants in St, Ives a lot serving fish dishes, are favorite was Smeatons in Wharf Road the fish and chips in there are delicious and very generous portions. St.Ives is a very good base for all the different places to visit, Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lands End, Minnack Theater etc.

A friendly, welcoming couple who made us feel relaxed and at home. Comfortable beds, though ours where a bit narrow. Breakfasts most enjoyable with lovely bacon. I can not fault you, well done and good luck for your future.

Tips:

If going into St Ives for the day take a taxi. All day parking is £6 a Taxi costs £4.50 A return journey is £9 This is only £3 more than all day parking and is little to pay for a stress free trip to town with possibly no parking spaces left. There are plenty of eating houses.

Excellent service and very friendly as always. Hard to find any negatives, but extract fan didn't work in ensuite, lights were a bit dodgy and shower kept spinning round on shower rail!

Tips:

Minack theatre, St Michaels Mount, Sennen Beach, Poldark Mine, Geevor Mine all worth a visit. Good restaurants: Alba, The Bean, Porthminster beach cafe. Avoid Blas Burger works. We booked a table and when we arrived they said come back in 15 mins. We came back and they then proceeded to give our table away to someone else! We ended up in Weatherspoons and paid half of what we would at Blas. Gd food & service at Spoons as always!

Tips:

This is a really good base to see the west of Cornwall the bus station is only a few mins walk away if your going to travel about on the buses get a saver ticket. Go down to the harbor at high tide and you will probably see a couple of the local seals. and if your after the perfect sun set head up to the (island) by the little chapel

Justin,Julie and George are the perfect hosts. This was our 2nd stay with them and we will be deinitely back in the future. Their home and rooms are beautifully decorated and make you feel at home.Each day your room is cleaned and topped up with complimentary water and teas coffees. Breakfast is delicious and sets you up for the day. Nothing is too much trouble and Justin and Julie are on hand to give plenty of tips and useful knowledge of the area so you can plan your days. Justin also has his daily weather and uv report which is very handy. We would recommend a stay at the olive branch.

Tips:

Porthcurno beach and theatre, st michaels mount, porthminster beach are all great days out.Take the open top bus from St Ives and see the sights. Restaurants we would recommend are cellar bistro,porthmeor beach cafe to watch the sunset and harbour fish and chips. For drinks we would recommend the sloop inn you can sit outside and watch the world go buy, union inn is also a nice pub.

Lovely stay in The Olive Branch thanks to Julie, Justin and George, thr dog. We felt very welcome and got very good advises where to go and what to do. We definetely will come back. Next time we will try to get a bit bigger room. Room 4 was the only room available. If weather would not have been that good the room would have been too small. But we were lucky and have been all time outside and discovered parts of Cornwall.

Tips:

Things to do, to see: Minack theatre, lovely open air theatre with perfect view on the sea Porthleven, small harbour village with good possibilities for walks (beach, The loe) The Beach Restaurant serving fresh fish but also good meet,reservation recommended, view on the sea Seafood Cafe chosing fish or meat directly from the counter, very good quality, booking in advance is recommended Pubs: The Sloop Inn (serving also food, haven't tasted),The Lifeboat Inn (food also not tasted)

Warm welcome on arrival, Julie met us and took our bags from taxi to our room, asked what refreshments we would like and served us tea and biscuits whilst she settled us in. Julie and Justin, plus George of course are the perfect hosts. Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast was cooked to order and there was a good selection to choose from.

Tips:

Would reccomended a taxi if arriving by train, its a bit of a climb up the hill with baggage. Check which floor your room is on if you have a problem with stairs. For good pub food we liked the LIfeboat Inn, good views out over the harbour. The Sea Food Cafe was another one we liked although booking is reccomended.

Fantastic. Very welcoming and helpful, without being overbearing. A very good place to stay, will be recommending to family and friends

Tips:

Local restaurants are pretty good, beaches are top notch and the local area is stunning. The Minack theatre is worth a visit, and The Sloop is a great pub to relax in. If you like South Cornwall St Ives is a great base from which to explore, but there's enough in town to keep you busy. The seafood is pretty good in all the restaurants we visited, but book ahead in most places if you want a decent table.

We had two wonderful days in St Ives and cannot recommend highly enough The Olive Branch. Justin, Julie and George their adorable dog were great hosts. Such a clean and bright room (room 3 with sea views is where we stayed). They were so helpful and very friendly - home from home. Breakfast was fabulous and the room was cleaned daily to an extremely high standard. The location was perfect too - everything we needed within walking distance. We were able to park right outside the front door and leave the car there for the duration. 10 out of 10! Thank You! We'll definitely return.

Beautiful location and easy short walking distance into the town. Super friendly and nothing too much trouble. Have stayed twice and would recommend highly.

Tips:

Best fish restaurant we think is the seafood cafe, quite pricey but quality superb.

Me and my partner stayed here between 21st and 25th of January 2015. We received a very warm, friendly welcome on arrival from Justin, Julie and of course George (the dog). We received loads of great advice about places to eat, directions around town, walks, attractions and drives etc. Me and my partner stayed in room 3 which has a great sea view from the bay windows, a massive TV, a settee, 2 chairs in the main bay window for looking at the view, really comfortable bed, pristine clean on-suite with heated mirror. The full breakfasts were great. The location was perfect as long as you don't mind a few inclines (but the whole of St Ives is like that anyway). It was only a couple of minutes walk to the main centre and 15 minutes to the furthest point of town. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to St Ives in the future.

Tips:

Restaurants/Cafes: Sea Food Cafe, Alba Restaurant, Harbour Fish & Chips, Firehouse. Pubs: Sloop Inn Things to Do: Coastal path walk from St Ives to Zennor, Coastal path walk from Sennen Cove to Land's End, Seal Sancuary (45 min drive).
