Lovely welcoming and friendly b&b. Sian and Jackie come in to serve up delicious breakfasts and are happy to answer any questions requiring local knowledge. There’s a comfortable lounge and a fridge for use by the guests which is a nice touch. It’s in a great location too just off the main shopping street and a minute’s walk from the harbour.

Tips:

The Union Pub is great for live music. Take earplugs if you don’t want to be woken up early by the seagulls and re-cycling vehicles.

The B&B is in a fabulous location - everything on your doorstep. It's good to note that direct car access to the door is sometimes not possible, but that's the nature of St Ives and its windy cobbled streets. It wasn't an issue at all for us but for those with mobility issues the steep stairs to the entrance and bedrooms might be a problem - but again, was fine for us. Bedrooms are well appointed, and have excellent tea & coffee making facilities. Everything was very clean and comfy. The top floor room gets very hot, but again, not much you can do, and a fan is provided in this room - I assume for this very reason! The shower room for the third floor is tiny, so won't suit anyone over 5'9, but again, all part of the charm of this old and characterful building. The other bedrooms were just as lovely. Communication with Sian (owner) was great - Sian was very quick to reply and helpful. Breakfast was served by the lovely Wendy...a great cook and made sure we had enough food! I would definitely stay here again!

The Anchorage is so well placed. We are very frequent visitors to St Ives but this was our first stay here and it was a joy. Staff were unbelievably friendly and so kind. Only thing I will say is if you have any mobility issues Room 1 is not ideal for you. And I can't remember seeing it stated anywhere whilst booking

Jackies Breakfast was so excellent that Sunday's was slightly disappointing- poached egg slightly overdone, bacon fat not crispy, first lot of Toast was cold - had possibly been standing, mushrooms cut too small, coffee too strong. Was still a good breakfast but Jackie's was PERFECTION. Also the place and everything was well up to standard and above many. Thank you very much

Tips:

Happy Hour at the Rum and Crab sat on the high stools overlooking harbour was brilliant - stayed on for very good meal Barbara Hepworths Studio an absolute must for all - art lovers or otherwise

Fantastic B&B in a great location. Wonderful breakfast & Sian is really friendly & helpful.

Tips:

There is no parking on site, although the B&B has a parking space that you can pay for in a nearby car park (about half a mile). If you're going to do this, I recommend using wheeled luggage, as it's quite steep to carry bags. Finding the B&B by car is very tricky, if you don't know St Ives, as the streets are very narrow & the one way system baffling. Take care in the B&B if you are tall, as there are loads of low beams, but I got used to it quite quickly. Bars & restaurants are excellent & we would recommend the Sloop Inn.

Best location in the heart of St Ives. Quaint little cottage, very Cornish! Superb breakfast & very friendly landlady & staff who were always willing to share useful local knowledge. Parking space a bonus. Would stay there again.

Tips:

Gorgeous village but tricky to drive round, follow signs for harbour to get in, park & ride best for day trippers. Great shops, art galleries, restaurants & pubs, try Harbour Fish & Chips & the Italian past the Sloop Inn. Sloop sometimes has live music, full of character. Worth exploring far west of Cornwall, Minack theatre is amazing.

Lovely room, view of beach and sea, very central location. Comfy bed and everything provided. Delicious breakfast too. The owner, Sian, is warm and friendly and made every effort to make our stay enjoyable.

Tips:

Being so central in St Ives it takes only minutes to walk anywhere in the town. The Tate is about 4 mins walk away. The beach about 50 yards . Lots of great cafes and restaurants very close as well as other shops etc. It takes about 8 - 10 mins to walk to the railway or bus station, probably less. Train us a brilliant way to get there, stunning journey by the sea and no hassles with parking. Frequent local buses.

Lovely location, lovely staff and fabulous breakfasts. Stayed with my six year old daughter in room 4 with a private bathroom across the landing and it was lovely and clean and plenty big enough for us both. The only problem my daughter had was opening the bedroom door as the door stuck a bit at the bottom and the door closer made the door quite heavy but she was never on her own so I could do it for her.

Tips:

Fab location for all shops, restaurants and harbour also very easy to get to the surfing beach

Thank you so much. Our accommodation was absolutely perfect in every way. It couldn't have been bettered & the wonderful breakfasts set us up for the day! There was one small hiccup with the boiler (re water heating) but even that was overcome in a practical & sensible way, so there was no real inconvenience for us. We would also like to thank you for letting us delay picking up our bags on the morning of departure.

Lovely friendly little B&B. Breakfast was excellent and location ideal.

Tips:

You're ideally positioned for the Tate and the Hepworth here, as well as the harbour and several beautiful beaches. The top room is delightful, but not suitable for taller travellers as I knocked myself on the beams several times. It has a lovely spacious feel to it, however, with a large window and beautiful light. Definitely a room with a view.

Sian and her team were friendly, helpful and very welcoming. The room was great with views of the harbour and Smeatons Pier. The location is good for all the shops, restaurants, bars and the harbour is only yards away. We enjoyed our stay very much and were sorry to leave but happy to say we have already booked for New Year 2018/19! - So highly recommended.

Tips:

Lots of restaurants and bars, the food is very good in the Sloop pub, the steaks are excellent. The restaurant Caffe Pasta is also very good (a favorite of ours) and all a short stroll away. There are lots of shops and art galleries including the well known Tate and the Barbra Hepworth Museum. Many coastal walks and much more. Just a great place to be.

Tips:

Take a guided walk around historic St Ives and you might also enjoy the evening Ghost Walk. Also visit the St Ives museum. A boat trip to the seal island if you have your sea legs, it can get rough!! St Ives is awash with art galleries and, of course, it has it's own Tate gallery. The beaches are fabulous!! Love St Ives!!

Excellent room, nicely furnished, brilliant breakfast and great staff.

Tips:

Ideal for all beaches only 50 metres from Porthminster beach(Harbour area)and Port hmeor( West side) only 300 metres away.Advised not to take a car here, no parking outside due to narrow lane, although a space is available on a first come basis a short distance away I believe. Only 4 rooms but worth it, steep staircase to first floor and low ceiling so beware. However the stay is recommended due to the close proximity of the beaches, local restaurants and amenities.

Tips:

Lots to do and see. St Ives is beautiful even when it's raining. Eating out can be a problem if you prefer healthier food but if fish and chips are your preference then you have a great choice. The pubs can get quite busy but offer a great atmosphere.

Very friendly welcome. Clean & pleasant accommodation (Room 3) in St Ives. Have stayed before, and will do again! The breakfasts were excellent. Good wifi coverage. Handy for painting school, shops, Tate, Porthgwidden beach. Handy parking in town where parking & driving is very difficult!

Tips:

Local restaurants we would recommend - The Searoom on harbour side; and Porthgwidden beach cafe (both evening meals, both excellent service). The Mermaid Restaurant, whilst the fish (John Dory, sea bass, plaice) was excellent, the decor is a bit more garish, no views, and seating is cramped.

Being a 6 Foot 5 man, i found the hotel to be a challenge for my size. however this did not stop me from enjoying my stay and led to some extremely pleasant laughs with my partner and staff. others may not appreciate the age and the beauty of the buildings size but I found it to be rewarding and exactly what i wanted from my stay. I had to walk backwards down the stairs and sadly could not stand up straight in the shower but this did not deter me from the warm and friendly feeling that the hotel offered. the breakfast was delicious and the comfort from the hotel was second to none. Thank you for everything, we shall be back and we shall be requesting room 1 again.

What can I say. It was amazing. The location was excellent with easy access to the habour and beaches plus restaurants. The room we stayed in was very clean and it had everything we needed with a great view of the sun rise over the habour. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was definitely worth it. The only minor thing is noise due to the proximity to the habour.

Tips:

In terms of things to do. I would recomend visting the Main Street and a walk around the three beaches. I would also highly recommend Porthmeor beach which has a great cafe to eat and a great view of the beach and surfers. One other place to eat is Porthminister beach cafe which might be pricey but well worth it. Carbis bay is also a nice beach to visit.

I would recommend staying at the Ancorage. Future clients should be aware that room 4 is very small and that the bathroom is across the landing . The good thing is that this bathroom is just for the room. Also, they need to be aware the drawback to being in such a central location is the evening noise in the busy months . Personally , I got used to this .

Tips:

All local bars and rest is good , plenty of choice .need to reserve in busy months. Everyone should visit all the beaches and all that is on the Tate card.

I was looking for a central, cozy, comfortable and homely place to stay. This ticked all the boxes and more for us. It was a surprise birthday weekend away for my man and he was impressed with everything from the unusual entrance to the room, to the view and the generosity of Danielle's service... We will be back!

Tips:

If you go in January be prepared for many places to be shut but on the upside you get the beach to yourself!!! PS Seagrass's mussels, the Sloops' Arbroath smokies and Seafood Cafe sardines are all competing for the beast meal!

Had a great overnight stay, Danielle was very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely and the breakfast superb - great coffee too!

Tips:

The Crab and Rum shack is a friendly and cosy place for a drink or something to eat, amazing view of the harbour, and the rum is fabulous - the staff can help you choose which rum would suit your taste. St Ives is unique - beautiful beaches and scenery, lovely individual shops and friendly locals - what more could you want!

Danielle is very friendly and helpful

Tips:

The Mermaid restraint is wonderful. Reasonably priced, a short walk from the Anchorage and, of course, lovely food
