Myself and my husband visited St Ives in September and we decided to stay at Shun Lee house from the fabulous reviews given on this site. Well, we were not to be disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were met by Terry and Paul and became friends instantly. We were greeted with a glass of wine which soon became a bottle, and a wonderful Cornish Cream Tea. After a long journey, that was such a lovely gesture.
They really do know how to provide top quality service. From the bedroom which had amazing views overlooking the bay and to Terry and Paul who certainly know how to look after you. Breakfast was amazing with so much to choose from and all freshly cooked by Paul. I never normally comment on places i have stayed before but i had to send this review as i was so blown away by this fabulous service and hospitality.
Apart from the spotless rooms, what Terry and Paul give extra (and give this the 5 star appeal), is little things like booking restaurants for you, giving you local information on where to eat, where to visit, what NOT to buy, etc. They did all of this for us, and we really appreciated their local knowledge and friendliness. Breakfast was such a wonderful experience not just because of the food or the spectacular view of St Ives Bay, but because of the lovely conversation from Terry (whilst Paul was busy cooking), and the great local stories of events going on in St Ives.
Thank you to Terry and Paul for making our trip so memorable and love to the 2 dogs. We have loved our time in St Ives, even though the trip was short (4 days), you made it one to remember. We will be back.
