We were showed to our room (number 1) which had an en-suite and was very clean and tidy. It also had a lovely view of the beach. The stairs to number one are quite steep...

A lovely little place run now by Danielle who looked after us very well with brilliant breakfasts and good attention. The house is centrally located really near the harbour, shops and restaurants. Friends and I had 5 nights in January and we were warm and cosy in our clean and comfortable rooms. It will definitely be my first choice if...

My husband and I have just returned from a three night stay at The Anchorage. Firstly, we were blessed with the warmest temperatures of the year so far! More importantly, we were very impressed with The Anchorage. It is right in the heart of St Ives so easy for popping in and out to the beach, harbour, shops, restaurants and...

We stayed here for 2 nights and the location, décor and service were first class. It looks small from the outside but the room we stayed in was very spacious. The only down side is the sound from the gulls at 6 in the morning. However, I like this. My wife was none to keen!

The Anchorage is in a perfect location right in the heart of St Ives. I stayed in the winter so crowds were not a problem. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The stairs to Room 1 are steep but manageable and worth it for the view. Chris is an excellent host and very helpful with information and local knowledge....
