Evelyn made us feel welcome from the start. The room was clean and tidy, a great size with on-suite, settee and a lovely balcony overlooking the sea. The breakfast was excellent and nice to sit with the other 2 couples chatting away first thing in the morning.

What a lovely place to stay. The room was enormous, even had a settee in it. It was much bigger than some of the 4 star hotels we have stayed in. The breakfast was great and the proprietor was ready to cook any combination you wanted. I even had coddled egg which was a first. Can fully recommend this bed...

A lovely place to stay with a large room and great breakfast. Evelyn cares for her guests and has thought of everything. It is hard if not impossible to take your car down to the town. Quite a hike back up the hill after dinner in St Ives but taxis are available. Would return even though this was the most...

As a couple who normally stay in hotel accommdation, due to high ratings on Trip advisor we thought we would try Rathlena. What a great decision it proved to be, a cross between a quality B&B and a stop over at your favourite aunties! We stayed 3 nights and Evelyn and Tony could not have done more to make you...

Stayed for 3 nights, slept very well in large comfortable room with a sea view, then enjoyed a great home cooked breakfast with warm croissants, pancakes etc. at a long table shared with 2 other couples. The house is in a nice quiet neighborhood not far from the Leisure Centre car park, which has a bus connection to the town...
