You can't go wrong staying here. Barrie and Angela are the nicest hosts you will ever meet. Their place is very clean, kept up-to-date and always friendly. Beds are comfy, views are lovely & breakfast is yummy! One of the best B & B's left in St. Ives.

Had a long weekend at Rivendell with my hubby. Angela & Barrie are a very friendly welcoming couple. Nothing is too much trouble for them, the Guest House is superbly decorated and exceptionally clean. The breakfast was second to none. Excellent all round. well recommended and would defiantly stay there again.

The parking spaces were full but one was being used by the owners daughter who moved her car straight away. We didn't even need to ask about parking. Barrie was lovely and showed us to our room - which...

However this room is built into the attic and has...

Great visit in ST:Ives and at Rivendells B&B. The room, the breakfast and the service was fantastic. Perfect located, only a short walk from the city center. Don't miss to visit Land's End nearby. A magic view. / Frida and Jonas B from Sweden.

Rivendell Guest House is charming, clean, comfortable, and smartly designed. Not one wrong note here! Its location is perfect - close to town, beaches, and public transportation. Perched above Porthminster beach it offers quaint, quiet, and impeccably clean rooms with wonderful views. The owners Angela and Barrie are the perfect hosts! They're warm and hospitable, and so knowledgeable about the...

We have had a lovely 2 night break, booked last minute. The room was the cleanest I have ever stayed in. Angela made home made scones with jam and clotted cream for our arrival. The breakfast, cooked by Barrie was 5 star. The hotel is welcoming, Angela and Barrie are lovely, you are only 300m from the centre and there's...

Angela and Barrie run a little gem of a place here! The rooms are well appointed, and spotlessly clean. Great brekkie in the morning and onsite parking, in a perfect location. Can't wait to return!! The pic is the view from room 6.
