Old Coach Road Lelant Downs
Tel: 01736 797572
Our family-run country inn with bed and breakfast has been in business for over 40 years and comprises of traditional factors with a modern twist. Balnoon Inn is located within seven acres of land, which is ideal for our guests to benefit from our many footpaths for country walks during their stay. We're not far from bustling town of St Ives where there is more lovely scenery including the harbour and beach. Throughout the day our restaurant serves up great food whilst our bar stocks a wide range of fine wines and cask ales. We're a child-friendly establishment and enjoy serving those who return regularly as well as those who are new to Balnoon. Our friendly staff are always happy to offer advice and recommendations for local attractions and days out.

The location was great. It wasn't to far from the town itself- little short drive. Room was nice. Liked the little extra touches with the lovely coffee, milk from the cows across the road :) and the home made biscuits...very nice.The breakfast was lovely too with all local products used...nice touch. We had dinner in the pub on 31st and we just wish we did not eat as much during the day. The food was lovely. Highly recommend.

Tips:

We went to a lovely Spanish/Tapas restaurant (La Casita) about 10 minutes drive from Balnoon Inn. The food was excellent there. Highly recommend.

Nice friendly staff offering a good and attentive service. Food in the restaurant was excellent. Set in a quiet location on the outskirts of St. Ives, it is ideal for a relaxed break. Extensive parking, a very well presented hotel.

Tips:

Very handy for St. Ives town but without the parking issues associated with St. Ives. There are plenty of places to visit, all within easy driving distance. Grevor Tin Mine is a superb visit to consider. Kynance cove is also a beautiful location.

Breakfast was great with plenty to choose from (full Cornish was amazing). Rooms were lovely with ample tea,coffee and biscuits and complimentary toiletries.

Although quite a basic room it was really large with lots of storage and exceptionally clean. A small but very sufficient shower cubicle. Lovely views over the Downs. Locally sourced coffee and tea. A small fridge would have been useful as we stayed for a week and the milk supplied didn't keep that well even in container given. The meals offered in pub were lovely and delicious but it would've been nice if the menu was changed slightly or specials offered. Breakfast was delicious especially the bread but more choice would have been nice ie kippers or salmon/eggs. Staff really lovely and we were made very welcome as was Ronnie our Labrador.

Tips:

St.Ives nearby is busy but beautiful with lots of lovely beaches with Bamaluz being the best dog friendly beach. Porthkidney and Hayle Towans beaches are superb. Carbis bay a lovely beach and well worth the early morning trek down along footpath! The train ride from Lelant Saltings to St. Ives is very scenic and well worth doing. The nearby Watermill and Countryman pubs are very friendly and serve good food.

We stayed for 5 nights and from the moment we arrived Liam and Lissa made made us more than welcome and and gave us great advice on places to visit. They recommend the Minack Theatre as a place to see and experience and my god it was excellent. Liam and Lissa do a mighty breakfast with fruit, Cereal and a full Cornish which kept us going for the day. Lovely bar to have some local craft beers and local gins in the evening. The location suited us as we did a lot of traveling around Cornwall.

Tips:

We recommend visiting Minack Theatre, St Michael’s Mount, Tate Modern St Ives, Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden St Ives, St Ives bay, Padstow Town, Eden Project. The Driftwood Restaurant in Rosevine is excellent for fine dining.

This was such a beautiful hotel in an equally beautiful location. Staff couldn’t do enough for you. We were always spoken to like we were firm friends. The breakfast was incredible - I don’t think there were loads of rooms, so they could really take the time to get her to know the other guests, who were also lovely. This also seemed like a plus for when it came to breakfast as so there was no limp bacon in a bufffet style dish, it was all cooked fresh. Would definitely recommend and we would definitely go back.

Tips:

St Ives is a beautiful town just to walk around, with lots of really nice pubs and places to eat. Paradise Park is a bird sanctuary thats only a few miles down the road, which is definitely worth a visit.

Tips:

A lovely place to stay, and about an hours walk to St Ives harbour - a bit less to walk to Carbis Bay. I enjoy walking +++ so not really an issue for me personally. Local public transport was a bit limited - about 1 bus an hour - number 16. Take flat shoes for walking :-)

Viv and her staff were very good and helpful with regards the local area. Bathroom was small and main sink was in the bedroom, however, not too much of a problem. We were near the road so there was traffic noise from 5.00 am, again not really an issue for us as we are use to it where we live. We enjoyed a quiz night and curry on our first night at a very reasonable price. We also walked into St Ives, it took about 30-40 mins.

Tips:

The train into St Ives is well worth it, just check on times, parking can be tricky as gets very busy at the station.

St. Ives is wonderful at any time of the day. Maybe you even spot a seal in the harbour! We recommend for a day out: Tintagel Castle and Mount St. Michael.

You've got it right. A comfortable stay in an attractive place close to tourist spots. It's a hotel / guest house which has the right balance of old and new. A character house with clean, modern, welcoming feel after any journey, especially a long one.

Tips:

A lovely place to stay if you want a good mix of hotel and guest house. Although on a main road, it's situated in a quieter area within striking distance of St Ives and other lovely places. Balnoon staff are friendly, the place is comfortable and the food is pretty good too.

Mike and Viv are great hosts very friendly and welcoming, the Balnoon is a lovely house in a great location just few minutes from St Ives , with ample parking and lots of space ! That is a premium and a blessing in St Ives , They also do a very popular Sunday Carvery which is brilliant ! but make sure you book a table as it is very popular , our room was very nice , well decorated clean and fresh.

Tips:

Get up early for a parking space in St Ives , and have plenty of coin put aside for this as it gets quite expensive if you are there for a week or two , then just walk and explore all around the beautiful town and stunning beaches, of which there are several very close to each other, the sea is so clean and clear , especially when the sun is shining, it is stunning !! Beware the Seagulls though if you are eating a pastie or an ice cream, because they will take it from you very easily ! they are fearless and very cheeky

No complaints about the accommodation at all. It was clean & comfortable. The only drawback is that it is a short car journey from St Ives centre, however this is reflected in the price and it is easy to get a cab into town. Every taxi driver I had recommended the Sunday lunch there and whilst I wasn't able to stay for that I did have dinner one night which was delicious, as was the complimentary breakfast each morning. The best bit about the stay though was how friendly the staff were, the owner Viv seeming to take a genuine interest in her patrons and happy to talk about the local area. I would definitely stay here again and recommend others do too.

Tips:

The Inn is located in a peceful area, a good half an hour walk from the centre of St Ives, so recommending a 10 min car drive and parking nearer the centre instead. There are several pay&display car parks in and around the centre. If you fancy a night in, I recommend a dinner at the Inn's cozy pub restaurant.

Would be hard pushed to find a better place to stay in the area now

Tips:

The hotel is well placed for access to all the usual tourist sites on the peninsula. It's a way from st Ives station so would suit those with a car better, but still consider if you are happy to yomp or use other transport options.

Tips:

If you are touring in the area, I strongly recommend a visit to St Michael's Mount - just a short drive down to the south coast. The coastal path between St Ives and Zennor is a fantastic walk if you feel energetic, and the Tinners Arms at Zennor well worth a call.

Stayed for 6 nights, having not been sure as to what to expect based on old tripadvisor reports, thankfully the Inn has been taken over by Viv and Mike who are a lovely couple and intent on making the Inn a success and keen to ensure their guests enjoy their stay. They are approachable and always willing to chat without being interfering. The rooms are freshly decorated and kept very clean. The en-suite is small but this is pointed out on their website. The breakfast is extremely good and well cooked. We only ate one evening at the Inn , and once again the food was excellant. Should you stay over the weekend suggest you book for sunday lunch as, not surprisingly, it is very popular. Staff all friendly and helpful.

Tips:

To be honest we ate in other pubs/restuarants and quite frankly none were better than the Inn.

We stayed at the Balnoon for a mini-moon following our wedding a week before. The venue was excellent; the rooms were really good and had all we needed. We only had breakfast for one morning but it was a nice full-english. We had an evening meal there on the final evening; the steak was well cooked and the lasagna was tasty though very rich. All the staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend the Lodge at Balnoon to friends planning a trip to St Ives.

Check out St Michaels Mount and make sure you take the train park and ride to St Ives itself, even if you drive as the views are fantastic from the train carriage.

Location ok but not in walking distance of St Ives sea front and town centre, which we thought it would be. Taxi £9 one way but when u pay the extra to stay in the centre and parking fares, this is not a bad expense. Try the evening meal as it looks very nice and reasonably priced.

We stayed for a long weekend and our stay was wonderful. The room was clean and welcoming, the breakfast was very good and the two dinners we had there were excellent. Everyone, from the owner down to the bar staff and waitresses were very pleasant and friendly, going out of their way to be helpful. If a restful break in a lovely little country hotel is what you're after, then I would recommend The Lodge wholeheartedly.

Tips:

We didn't eat out because the food here was so good. Use the train park and ride if going to St Ives, as the parking is bad,Lands End is now very commercialized and only good if you have children who want theme parks and shopping villages. However, at Zennor is a little gem of a museum and a very good cafe, a pretty,unspoilt village. Also, the bay at Porthcurno, with its beach of crushed shells and turquoise water is the prettiest imaginable.

Nothing is to much trouble for ether of them and my room had everything the traveller could want, spotlessly clean, quiet,great breakfast, loads of tea and coffee in room, internet,parking,lovely comfy bed and then you wake up to birds singing outside, perfect. My advice is book the Balnoon which is just outside of St Ives, you cant beat the price, its amazingly cheap for what you get. Don't stay in the centre of St Ives as its a nightmare if you have a car. The only negative I could find is I had room 6 and there was no place to hang my towel in the bathroom, I'm being picky but its the only negative in my stay.

Tips:

In St Ives, Tate and defiantly go to the Hepworth Museum, Porhtminster Cafe for top-end food and great beach and view. St Michael's Mount,take the boat across and look around the house. If you do one thing go to the Minack Theatre, its cut into the cliff face and they do live theatre in the night with the waves crashing below you and a back drop of more cliffs in the distance its unbelievably beautiful, breath taking.

Very good breakfast and food in general, very nice bar/restaurant area.Will surely recommend you to friends . Impossible to ask for everything, but if there was a ''shuttle'' bus or taxy or similar service passing nearby (even 2-3 times a day only) either to st ives or carbis bay it would be perfect. On the pub green area, next to the car park, maybe as a future project, I would put a few slides/swings for younger children to play and some chairs + tables so the parents can have a pint (or two) while keeping an eye to the children..These are only suggestions, I am not criticizing at all, the place is really nice and we had a really good stay there...shame you are 290 miles away otherwise i'll be there every week end !

Really nice hosts, location and relaxed atmosphere. Appreciated tips on the local area,good footpaths etc. I thought my single room was very good value for money. The only thing I didn't like was the plug in air fresheners that I found overpowering and was allergic to but this was easily resolved when I mentioned it. The cooked breakfast was up with the best and gluten free was provided from day 1-thank you.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Lodge. It was a lovely place to stay and the bar was a nice place to sit in the afternoons and evenings. It was a good location for exploring South West Cornwall and getting to St Ives. The owners and staff were very friendly.

Tips:

An easy way to get into St Ives is to park at St Erth station in the morning and then get the train to St Ives. It is a lovely scenic train ride and only takes about 15 minutes. But you would probably need to get there early - we parked at 10am and there was plenty of space to park but by the afternoon the carpark was full. Walking down to St Ives from the Lodge is also a good option although we didn't try walking back from St Ives to the lodge as it would have been all uphill. We got a taxi back instead.

A great venue for a relaxing base to visit places within the south of Cornwall !! Good value for money !

The Lodge at Balnoon is about three miles outside of St Ives. You can drive there without the need to struggle through the traffic congestion in the town. You can easily access the car parks above The Tate if you want to spend time in St Ives, and the A30 is only a couple of miles away if you want to go further afield. The rooms are clean, comfortable and a decent size. The shower/toilet is compact but perfectly adequate. There is a large bar/restaurant area. The cooked breakfast was excellent, but the continental offering is too limited and needs to be extended. If you want to avoid the hassle of bring in the centre of St Ives, but be close enough to enjoy it, then The Lodge is a very good choice. Some of the hotels are considerably more expensive but I doubt they offer any more. We will be back

Tips:

If you like eating out there is plenty of choice in west Cornwall. We ate at the Balnoon a couple of months back and would certainly eat there again when we are next in the area. If you like waking there are miles of coastline to enjoy.

Perfect location in easy distance of everywhere we wanted to go and still far away enough to be peaceful. The room was lovely and the staff were very friendly, welcoming and made us feel at home throughout our stay.Beautiful surroundings and overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Wouldn't hesitate to come back when the Summer weather arrives.

Tips:

St Ives is only 10 minutes down the road by car. The harbour is lovely and the town is quite busy on a nice day. We followed the parking signs past the harbour and parked by a beach, where in seconds of being there we spotted 4 seals, was amazing. Carbis Bay is also 10 minutes from the hotel and I would strongly recommend going there, the beach was gorgeous and doesn't feel like an English beach at all.

Thank you for the comments and constructive views. The idea of a comfortable reading chair in the rooms is a good one and we will look to introduce this asap. You were unlucky to stay during the coldest few days of the winter to date and yes we were annoyed that the heating system struggled to keep our bar area warm. Since your stay we have worked with a local heating engineer and hopefully some planned changes to the heating system will improve the temperature in the bar during future cold evenings.
