Our stay at Rathlena was very enjoyable. The bedroom was very spacious, the view was great and the breakfast was huge. Nothing was to much trouble for Evelyn, a very friendly guest house. A little gem in St Ives, would definitley use again.

Stayed in the Rathlena guest house for a couple of nights this week and it was idyllic. Lovely bedroom and balcony and a wonderful hostess Evelyn. A wonderful cooked breakfast to set us up for the day and only a short walk into town. We had a lovely time.

We stayed at Rathlena for 3 nights and were quite pleased with the experience. Evelyn is a great and friendly host, the room is nice, clean and with lovely views, and the breakfast was huge and delicious. The B&B is located 5-10 min walk from the busy town center which was perfect for us.

Really enjoyed our 7 night holiday. The rooms, especially the beds were extremely comfortable and Evelyn's breakfasts always delicious - and huge! Evelyn (owner) was a great source of information for places to visit and the bedroom balconies with sunloungers were lovely to relax on. Would definitely recommend for a relaxing stay.

From our arrival until our departure after seven days Evelyn could not have done more to make our stay at Rathlena more comfortable and relaxing. Her personality is such to put you at ease as soon as you arrive and shown to your luxurious accommodation. It is no exaggeration to say we recognise quality and value when we experience it...
