Stayed here in July for 3 nights. Did not expect much in the way of a single room but was pleasantly surprised. Lots of space to store clothes and room had everything one needed. Hairdryer, toiletries, daily stocked refreshments tray with good selection of items. I even found a room fan, and a laptop tray and a pull out drying...

Just spent 9 nights at The Rookery, excellent room with fabulous views and comfortable bed, the cleanliness was exceptional with nice little touches. Fabulous breakfast with good choice, lovely owners Barbara & Ron and great staff, would highly recommend this Guest House. Looking forward to our next visit.

The rooms are of a very high standard. Very central to St Ives so noise levels can be on the high side but good double glazing reduces this. High standard breakfasts. Staff in the dining room are funny in that an elderly waiter forgets the order within seconds and is back again. A young teenager waitress got an order wrong...

Cleanliness excellent. A warm friendly greeting. Breakfast again excellent. So close to bus station and taxi's for daily stress free day trips. Ron and Barbara were the perfect hosts. Everything you could want in a relaxing break away for it all.

This was a lovely place to stay at the end of our week in Cornwall. Although we were on the ground floor, we still had lovely views across the bay. We arrived earlier than anticipated but were made very welcome and were able to access our very comfortable room straightaway. Breakfast was good and there was no problem about leaving...

Lovely B&B in St Ives brilliant location short walk into town and beaches great rooms and breakfast. The hosts Barbara & Paul are excellent and nothing is too much trouble - rooms very well presented and spotlessly clean lovely views from rooms at the front overlooking the harbour - also free parking close by. Will definitely be back later Inge...
