We've just returned from a lovely weekend in St Ives & doubt we could have found a better place to stay! Angela is so friendly, made us feel totally welcome & upgraded us to a sea view room on arrival as they were quiet, a gesture we really appreciated as the room was beautiful. The guest house is light, airy & spotless, with a fab cooked breakfast provided. The location is also excellent, with just a short walk into the town. We would definitely recommend staying here - it's a real gem!

Room Tip: Room 6 is amazing!

Rivendell is the best in Cornwall to stay, fantastic couple who own it, so friendly, clean, fantastic breakfasts, so convenient for the shops, quaint cafes and beach. A must for anyone wanting a great holiday. We loved it there.

A wonderful welcome sets the scene and everything goes on from strength to strength. Good rooms, excellent breakfast, tea and coffee making in rooms.

Each guest is made to feel important and to be honest it feels like you are staying with friends, even if it is your first visit!!

It is well situated for all that St Ives has to offer as well. You could be there and never need to use your car if all you want is St Ives. There are plenty of walk books available if you are more energetic!!

We had a wonderful stay at Rivendell in May. Angela and Barrie made us so welcome. Its the sort of guest house that I would really like to keep a secret as it is quite perfect really. The breakfasts are lovely. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean.The parking is a real bonus too. Will certainly go back.

Room Tip: All rooms beautiful but some smaller than others.

Great place, great hosts.
Was thinking about staying with a hotel but very expensive.
This was cheaper so was a risk, paid off massively as it was a really nice place.
Breakfast could not be faulted.
Room had everything required.
Space was limited in room 5 but thumbs up regardless.
Ace view from room.
I hope they get good business in the future as its deserved!!
