This was our second visit to Shun Lee and it was as superb as the first time.
Outstanding views, comfort, facilities, food, service and friendliness.

Terry and Paul are the perfect hosts, they leave you feeling like you are one of the family, everything was perfect, from the room, with its fluffy white warm towels, dressing gowns, luxury bathroom accessories, vanity kits and sewing kits in the drawers and a bed with an unbelievably comfortable matress, to the food, which was the best I had ever eaten. Shun Lee is a short costal walk from St. Ives and the scenic views are fantastic from the hotel, eating breakfast looking out over the bay was awesome. You are made to feel so special it's unbelievable, can't wait to return.

Thank you Paul and Terry for a truly memorable weekend. We came to Shun Lee to visit the hotel as a potential Wedding location for our ceremony and reception. From the minute we arrived be were looked after and made to feel so very welcome. A beautiful house in a stunning location, our room met every need, extremely comfortable, with incredible views over St Ives. We had a lovely meal on our first night followed by two faultless breakfasts which certainly set us up for the day. Nothing was too much bother, tea and coffee offered frequently and a lovely unexpected aperitif before heading out for the evening. Thanks once again, we are very much looking forward to returning to Shun Lee in October for our Wedding ceremony and reception.

In only 50 words . . . can't be done ! We went to "Shun Lee House" St. Ives, Cornwall, for Lunch on Valentines Day. We were greeted with a Glass of Pink Champagne, a very stylish setting, plush and great decor. The roast meal was excellent, 5 Veg., plus Roast Potatoes, now the Puddings (all home made) were something - we tried 3 WOW! - we then went into the Lounge for Coffee and Mints; and if you know St. Ives the views from windows were breath-taking, there were even Dolphins popping up and down in the Bay.
Terry and Paul - "you know how to treat people".

I have just returned from a perfect Christams at Shun Lee House. I was well looked after from the moment I arrived on the 23rd Dec till I left on the 28th. Paul & Terry are the perfect hosts nothing to much trouble. I had either dinner or lunch with them every day just like a member of the family, a real old fasioned Christamas. Good luck you guys you deserve it.

My husband and I have just retutrned from our honeymoon in St Ives, which we spent at Shun Lee House and we struggle to fault it. Terry and Paul were hugely welcoming and helpful. No favour was too big - offering us tea at the end of our cliff top walks and helping us out in whatever way they could. The room was like being enveloped in a warm blanket, white fluffy robes, huge bathroom and comfortable bed - and in addition the views to the harbour and out to sea were 'to die for'! The breakfasts set us up for the day with a huge variety of choice on offer (I particularly recommend the porridge with clotted cream, brown sugar and honey - dieters beware!). A wonderful choice for a honeymoon, and somewhere we are sure to return.

We recently had our wedding at Shunlee House, and it was the most wonderful day we could have wished for.Terry and Paul made it all so perfect, flowers in all the rooms, beautifully laid table and the most delicious food. We had our ceremony in the conservatory which has a fantastic view out accross the sea looking down on to St Ives, really stunning.The two bedrooms are luxurious, with everything you could possibly need, also with amazing views and such a comfortable bed it was hard to get up in the morning, but breakfast was a treat not to be missed, Paul will cook you anything, from black pudding to smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, aswell as fresh croissants and fruit salad. Luckily there is a beautiful footpath that starts from the garden, so you don't have to go far to walk it off! Everything was gorgeous, I couldn't recommend it more, we will definitely be going back again, soon I hope!
