“Coming back home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2012

Again we enjoyed beeing with Terry and Paul (and the little girls(dogs))for another 8 days. And the view over St. Ives and Godefrey is always amazing! It is very quiet and if you want some more tourists you just have to walk 5 minutes downtown to St. Ives. It is one minute from the South West Coast Path! The days startet with an individuell breakfast for each of us. Then the boys finished a thermo-bottle with coffee and the danish cookies for our daily picknic and got some tipps what we could do or see.They also made reserverations for dinner in some very nice restaurants for us. Again we had the feeling beeing pampered but we liked it very much.
We hope we can come back very soon!

My partner and I had the best time over New Year. terry and Paul are just the perfect hoteliers, breakfast is delicious and one is always spoiled for choices.
Our room had perfect views over the town and the bay.
This is the perfect place for walks towards the beaches or into town. Or else, one can rent bicycles or a car and explore the magnificent Cornwall coastlines.
Thank you, Paul and Terry, for a beautiful holiday!

There are innkeepers and then there are Innkeepers. Terry and Paul are two of best that we have had the good fortune to meet at the dozens of B & B’s we’ve stayed at over the years. They are warm, professional to the max, and just great people. Their many years of experience as airline stewards have served them well. Their attention to detail is amazing.

We were met at the St Erth Railroad Station by Paul and driven to the Shun Lee House where we were introduced to Terry. We stayed in the spacious Raffles Suite, which has one of the most beautiful views of the town and harbor of St Ives. The furnishing and window treatments were well done. We appreciated the fresh flowers from their garden on the mantle. The bed was comfortable with nice linens. The bathroom was large, very clean, had ample toiletries and plenty of towels. Once we unpacked, we were invited to have cream tea in the living room—which consisted of tea, cookies, fresh scones, jam and clotted cream. Both Paul and Terry could not do enough for us, in fact they went well above expectations to accommodate our needs. From the wonderful breakfast items to information on restaurants, these two innkeepers were outstanding. The property has one of the great locations for visiting St Ives and this area of Cornwall. It’s just a few minutes’ walk down a tree covered path to one of the many beaches in the area and the town of St Ives. We will plan another visit back St Ives and the Shun Lee House in the future. Again, thank you both for making our stay memorable.

Our second visit within 2 months and planning a third after Christmas. Beautiful rooms, fantastic views over St Ives Bay, wonderful breakfasts with so much choice of perfectly and freshly cooked food. Above all we appreciate the kind attention of Terry and Paul who devote themselves to making their guests welcome from arrival to departure - in our case from collecting us from the station to returning us there. The service is outstanding and nothing is too much trouble. Cannot recommend highly enough and cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: Raffles has double aspect windows giving a panoramic view over St Ives and round to Godrevy Lighthou...

This was our second stay at the Shun Lee; first class establishment, first class hospitality, first class.......................well, everything!!!! Sometimes when you return to a holiday destination second time round it never quite lives up to the previous experience, this could never be said about the Shun Lee. We had the most wonderful and relaxing time, never wanting for anything; all our needs were caringly catered for. Terry and Paul, we can not thank you enough and look forward to seeing you in 2012.

Room Tip: Both rooms are equally as impressive with stunning views. We stayed in the Raffles Suite again whic...

This was not my first time staying at Shun Lee but the welcome, the room, the food and the attention to detail was as professional as ever. Terry and Paul's standards are exceptionally high and it is that which makes every stay at Shun Lee House so special, perfect and memorable.
I am, already, looking forward to my next visit.

If you need to recharge your batteries from the hurly burley of life we haven't found anywhere better than Shun Lee House. From the moment of arrival, body and soul can begin to unwind. Paul's cooking and Terry's attention to detail ensures that you will relax.
Add to this a lovely room with stunning views you are assured of a wonderful break in St Ives.

Room Tip: Both rooms have fantastic views.
