The Anchorage B&B St Ives
Ranked #47 of 102 St Ives B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 June 2017 via mobile

Returned to the Anchorage after many years since our last visit and it was fantastic. Lovely rooms with everything you need. Great breakfasts too. Nothing is too much trouble for Danielle who runs the B&B, even helping us out when we got stuck in the busy front road on arrival and providing us with parking. A very lovely place to stay and we won't hesitate to book again.

First holiday with my boyfriend and glad we booked this lovely little place. The staff were very friendly and were happy to help in any way they could. Wifi throughout which is always a bonus! Amazing breakfast (which is a must). Rooms were small but we didn't need anything big personally. It did mean our private bathroom was across the landing so it was a bit strange in my pjs and towel head!

The only reason we have rated three is the parking was a distance, however in st Ives I suppose it's just a good thing we got parking at all. And it was still within walking distance.

The downside was the check out on booking.com said 10.30, but on the day to leave we were asked to leave at 10.10 for the next visitors. It wouldn't have been a problem if I didn't think it was 10.30, maybe just clarify this with guests at check-in? Otherwise great place to stay! :)

Perfect location for enjoying everything St Ives has to offer. A very friendly welcome and a lovely room despite it being the smallest. Breakfast was the best we've had anywhere we've stayed before.
I would give this a five star rating if toiletries and hair dryer had been provided as stated on the website. I didn't bring my own and had to ask for some. I was kindly offered shampoo and shower gell but I didn't like to have to ask.
We'd highly recommend this beautiful B&b and hope to return in the summer.

Just enjoyed two nights here. Danielle directed us in and was excellent. Breakfast was fresh and tasty. The beds were very comfortable. Everything was very clean and pretty. The location being just yards from the water in the harbour was perfect for us. Car parking, as it is almost everywhere in St Ives, is minutes away in a public car park. We intend to return in the Autumn.

Wonderful B & B, really quaint in the heart of St Ives. We were in Room 1 at the top of the Anchorage & had views of the harbour & sea which was perfect. The room is nicely done out, very clean & a comfortable bed. It was small but ample for our needs. The stairs up to it were awkward but manageable. You have to realise its a small old fisherman's house (I think?) & not a Victorian town house. Danielle and Mum made us feel extremely welcome & their breakfast was superb. Nothing was too much trouble & their recommendations of where to eat (cafe pasta) and drink (the balcony) were spot on. The b & b couldn't be better placed & the offer of parking £6 per day should be taken. We didn't need the car till time to come home. Wonderful stay, lovely people. Definitely on our list to revisit.

We stayed at The Anchorage for a birthday weekend. Both staff members were extremely helpful and friendly. We had the last room available and it was very well appointed with everything we needed, even wine glasses. It was clean and warm and cosy. The only very minor thing was that the bed was a little on the hard side but this might suit some people. The house is very old and has lots of charm.

It is situated right near the front and is great for pottering around the galleries and restaurants and easy to nip back to. Parking was a bit tricky, as everywhere in St Ives (we drove around twice before we found the place) but we popped the car overnight in the nearby short stay and then moved it up the hill in the morning to the long stay.

I would definitely recommend The Anchorage and would stay here again. Suggest you book early if it is in season though.

Another great stay in The Anchorage, a lovely B&B in the heart of St. Ives. We chose room 3 which from previous experience has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is always spotlessly clean with fresh towels and linin. The tea and coffee facilities were very welcome and were refreshed every day. The B&B itself is ideally located in the middle of town giving easy access to beaches, eateries and lovely walks. To return after time outside exploring provides a warm and comfortable haven to relax and recharge your batteries before heading off out again. Breakfast sees a selection of cereals, fruit and juice along with the option of a fantastic cooked breakfast with tea and coffee. The attention to detail along with the (as always) lovely welcome from Danielle and Jane is second to none and as a customer you feel truly valued. We will happily return to The Anchorage again in the future. Thank you for a lovely stay!
