Having stayed in St Ives on several occasions, we will now look no furthur...as our title suggests this is 'simply the best'. From the moment of our arrival, after a long drive from Wiltshire, we were treated to Tim's wonderful hosting skills..insisting on carrying our bags etc. We stayed in 'Sandra', the most delightful and 'quirky' room with views of...

We stayed in the Rebecca room from 24 to 29Apr and we absolutely loved it. Nice design bathroom, with slate walls. Although it is an older house, it breaths design. The house is located in a very quiet area with various little art galleries closeby and only a few steps away from restaurants and shops. St. Ives is a lovely,...

We just returned from a Bank Holiday Weekend to St Ives, with a wonderful stay at Cornerways. Tim and Shelley were perfect hosts, and catered to our every wish. And Tim's breakfasts will be sorely missed! Hotel location is perfect for access to 3 of the major beaches, and is a 2 minute walk to 'The Island' for fantastic views....

I chose Cornerways after reading all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and I can't speak more highly of it. Tim is a great host and his breakfasts are out of this world - must be the best in St Ives! I shall definitely be going back to Cornerways again and am recommending it to all my friends.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Spend your holidays with us in Downalong, a labyrinth of cobbled lanes which used to be the fisherman's quarter in the oldest part of St Ives. Cornerways was built in the 1830s and has been a Guest House for over 70 years. Only 50 yards from the harbour, beaches and restaurants, Daphne Du Maurier stayed here in the 1940's. The Tate Gallery, for which we provide complimentary tickets, and St Ives Art School are only 150 yards away. Two of our rooms overlook the harbour and bay beyond. With a modern feel that echoes the artists’ quarter in which it sits, Cornerways’ rooms have been renovated and totally redecorated over the last 7 years and all have new en-suites. All bedrooms have LCD TVs, DVD Players, Wi-Fi, tea and coffee facilities, fridges and complimentary Cornish bottled water. The 3' thick Cornish Granite walls and no passing traffic will ensure you a snug & quiet night’s sleep.Breakfast is served in the uncrowded dining room with only fresh produce being used. We also cater for vegetarians. Fresh local fish is available daily, which includes smoked salmon, local mackerel, kippers and smoked haddock. Tim & Shelley ... more   less
