Fodor's Review

Everything in St. Ives seems squeezed into the tiniest of spaces, and this cottage B&B in the quiet Downalong quarter is no exception. The light, tastefully converted rooms are pleasingly simple in design and enlivened by an eclectic collection of curios; all have modern bathrooms and the more expensive have sea views. Most rooms are named after characters in Daphne du Maurier's novels (she once stayed in one of them). Breakfast choices include smoked haddock and fresh fruit salad, and you can use complimentary tickets to visit the Tate and Hepworth galleries, which are just minutes away.
