We recently had a perfectly lovely stay at The Rookery. The location is great. We came by train and it is a very short walk from the station. Our rooms were large, comfortable, spotlessly clean and had great views of the harbor. Our genial host, Ron, could not have been more obliging - he even took us in his car!... More

My wife and I have just returned from a trip to cornwall for the new year festivities. The welcome we received from the proprietors of the Rookery was really good. The place is relaxed and friendly with a good standard of accommodation and excellent views. The breakfast is excellent. The house is part way up a large hill so may... More

It's worth starting any review of this Guest House with the phrase "Ron is a character", because that's the abiding memory I'll have from our couple of night stay here! The Rookery is perfectly situated for St. Ives, you can walk anywhere in town within 5 minutes. This important, as St. Ives does not like the car, and parking is... More

We stayed last weekend and I have to say it was a perfect choice. We travelled by train and it took us about 5 minutes from the station to the front door. We had a heavy bag with us, so it must be a shorter walk without. Our room, number 3, had a fantastic view over the beach, a good... More

We had a great break in St Ives and enjoyed our stay here. Our room wasn't the largest and could do with a little renovation but it was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The best aspect of it though was definitely the view which is fantastic. Breakfast is only served between 8:30 and 9:00 and you need to decide what you... More

Very impressive B&B. Amazing views of the harbour from our room (No 3) - clean, spacey and bright. Superb choice of breakfast to set you up for the day. Great hosts, friendly, welcoming, lovely people. Have no problems in recommending the Rookery and will definitely be back. Ron is a card!!!
