We have stayed with Paul and Terry twice now and I can say without trepidation that 5 stars barely does justice to the quality of the service we have experienced. Perched high above St Ives, the stunning costal views are simply spectacular and you would be forgiven for thinking that very little could top the beautiful vistas, however the personal service provided by Paul and Terry is more than a match. Instantly welcoming and accommodating they are the perfect hosts and it is a pleasure to be able to share the wonderful ambience they have created at Shun Lee.
Both the accommodation and food are of exceptional quality, and the homely family atmosphere feels just right. The rooms are tastefully furnished and benefit from the exceptional sea views.
The beach is appoximately 10 mins walk away down a winding path that will keep you fit if you attempt the climb back up, but it is well worth the effort. The harbour town of St Ives is picturesque, with many different bars and resturants catering for all tastes, and Paul and Terry will only be too happy to recommend some wonderful trips out for the more adveturous.
Personally we can't wait to visit again and would recommend the experience of Shun Lee to anyone visiting St Ives.
Don't forget to say hello to the girls if you go!
