The idilic town of St.Ives is somewhere you can’t help but fall in love with (That’s why we moved here over a decade ago).
St.Ives is just north of Penzance and set on the stunning Cornish coast surrounded by 4 individual beaches with plenty of room for sunbathing, surfing and strolling as well as kayaking, paddle-boarding and a whole host of other activities spread across the town.
The town is full of little shops, quaint streets, festivals, artists, restaurants, pubs and eateries so you’ll be spoilt for choice as to how to fill your time here.
“STILL the Gold Standard for all B&Bs. This is still one of the best places I have ever stayed. This place doesn’t need any more excellent reviews, clearly all other guests who have stayed there agree. Every time I have stayed here I have had nothing but exceptional hosting, breakfast, sleep quality and cleanliness and that is a great achievement. Just keep on doing what you do so well!”
“What can i say about this place that hasn’t already been said? having stayed in many places over the years i can honestly say the rookery is well up there as the best i have stayed in…couldn’t fault this place..from the lovely room,to the excellent welcome i received,also including the delicious well cooked breakfast….a big thanks to Ron and Barbara for their fantastic hospitality and to their staff too….i would most definitely stay here again and strongly recommend it as a brilliant place to stay in….top marks!”
“Wonderful place to stay so clean with great little touches making it worth another stay. Room was great with lovely bathroom. Great choice on tea tray very impressed with quality of the room and breakfast great choice.”
“Lovely B&B by the sea, very comfortable sea view rooms and great ensuite with shower; very modern. They do a great breakfast, not just the usual fry up. I enjoyed smoked salmon and scrabbled eggs; beautiful! I would definitely stay again when visiting St.Ives”
“We have just returned from a wonderful two night stay at the Rookery Guesthouse in St Ives it has a lovely location a few minutes walk from the town, beach’s and a good selection of Restaurants with superb views over the harbour and bay from the front bedrooms,. the room we had was spotless with lots of little added extras to make you feel welcome and comfortable and what can we say about the hosts Ron and Barbara with their lovely staff they were the best and could not do enough for you. They had special car parking arrangements which would have caused a problem and a breakfast to remember.”
“We stayed for a few days in December and found the location perfect for lovely winter walks on all the beaches. Also the views from the front bedrooms are spectacular. The accommodation was perfect with our suite having a 4 poster bed, separate shower room and a cozy lounge. Everything was to the highest standard and could not be faulted, even to the witty inclusions in the locality guide. Barbara and Ron are perfect hosts and a mine of information and go out of their way to help. I would fully recommend The Rookery to anyone.”
“Simply one of the best B&b we have stayed in and we have stayed in many across Europe. Great location, 4 min walk to shops, rooms are beautiful with harbour views, excellent breakfast and lovely hosts Ron and Barbara”
“I’m from Cornwall so wanted to head to the home county for the weekend, booked for me and the Mrs to stay at the rookery, all I can say is 10/10, room was perfect (even had a small fridge), proper local service, breakfast was lovely. Will definitely be staying again, well impressed. 10/10, thanks Ron for making our stay so enjoyable.”
“This is a friendly, conveniently-located B&B in St Ives. Nicely appointed rooms. I enjoyed the American pancakes for breakfast, and I’m from the States originally. I especially appreciated that the owners took time to advise on local sightseeing, because without their help, we would not have known to visit St Michael’s Mount in Marazion, which was a highlight of the trip.”
