An excellent breakfast is being served. fresh fruits, yoghurt, cereals, freshly prepared egg dishes.

I can't recommend this place enough. I've travelled to St. Ives several times, once staying at a terrible B & B in Carbis Bay, and the rest at a hotel geared for walkers. For return visits, and there will be many because I love St. Ives, falling in love with it when I was 12, I'm staying at the Rivendell....

Angela and Barry were the perfect hosts. The bedroom was more like a boutique hotel, and beautifully kept. Breakfast was not only delicious but was an event in itself as Angela brings a birthday cupcake, card and balloon for guests celebrating their birthday. Barry's beautiful photography of the area also decorates the house. Outstanding hosts and outstanding good value.

We booked to stay 3 nights at the Rivendell on a recommendation from a colleague. We were very impressed by the hospitality and the lovely warm welcome we had after a very long drive.

We've just returned from a lovely weekend in St Ives & doubt we could have found a better place to stay! Angela is so friendly, made us feel totally welcome & upgraded us to a sea view room on arrival as they were quiet, a gesture we really appreciated as the room was beautiful. The guest house is light, airy...
