We enjoyed our stay here my son (who is nine) and I. We were given a friendly welcome and the key to the door. Breakfast was fantastic. There is a bus service that runs reguarly from directly outside to the town but you can always walk. It was beautifully sunny both days we were there but we wouldn't have had...

Excellent hotel, spotlessly clean and probably the best cooked breakfast we've ever had. Put it this way, a couple of years ago we splashed out on a big anniversary and booked a night at the Savoy in London, and the breakfast at the Old Vicarage was better than that! Home made yogurt and "granola", fresh fruit etc. also available, served...

I had a fabulous stay in St. Ives & was pleased to retreat to The Old Vicarage, situated on the outskirts of the St Ives' hubbub for the most comfortable & quiet night's sleep I've had in ages! The breakfast was wonderful with great choices - I loved the homemade fruit compote & had a very satisfying cooked breakfast too!...

Stayed for one night only but enjoyed the atmosphere and helpfulness of the staff, the room was comfortable and nicely decorated. The breakfast was very good both the full English and especially the Smoked Haddock and poached eggs.Would certainly stay again.

Lovely stay at The Old Vicarage with Dianne & Martin who could not have been more welcoming. Extremely comfortable room; superb breakfast choice and standard - other B&Bs could learn a lesson. Superb position just out of the town in extensive grounds with copious amount of car parking. An appetite enhancing walk into town on an evening or a bus...

Driving up to this you would be right to be confused, how could there be a B&B among all these houses but then you arrive at the top of the road and see The Old Vicarage sign on the left, once you have parked your car in the large car park you find yourself faced with a quaint 150 year...
