I have stayed at Cornerways many times over the last few years and always use this top class B&B as my first choice when in the town of St.Ives...........St Ives was packed tight over this last weekend yet Tim, the owner, found me a parking space at very short notice and helped me in with my luggage for a three night break.
The rooms are always in tip top condition and immaculately kept and the quaintness of this building that is steeped in literary history, never ceases to amaze me.
Tim had also had some family members down for the weekend along with two couples who book this same week every year and some other guests there on recommendation, so it was a very friendly atmosphere with everyone chatting in the dining area whilst enjoying Tim's 'Signature Breakfasts' !!
Still way top of the league as the 'Premier' B&B in the center of the 'Old Town' and yet is only 50 Meters from the harbor, town beach and a selection of restaurants to cater for all tastes and pockets
Cornerways is open all the year round so if you cant stand the hustle and bustle of peak season call in anytime and soak up a true 'Geordie' welcome from this top accommodation provider.........I have already made my next booking !!!
The one this you wont see in St. Ives is a Badger !...........plenty of seagulls........but not a Badger in sight !!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Spend your holidays with us in Downalong, a labyrinth of cobbled lanes which used to be the fisherman's quarter in the oldest part of St Ives. Cornerways was built in the 1830s and has been a Guest House for over 70 years. Only 50 yards from the harbour, beaches and restaurants, Daphne Du Maurier stayed here in the 1940's. The Tate Gallery, for which we provide complimentary tickets, and St Ives Art School are only 150 yards away. Two of our rooms overlook the harbour and bay beyond. With a modern feel that echoes the artists’ quarter in which it sits, Cornerways’ rooms have been renovated and totally redecorated over the last 7 years and all have new en-suites. All bedrooms have LCD TVs, DVD Players, Wi-Fi, tea and coffee facilities, fridges and complimentary Cornish bottled water. The 3' thick Cornish Granite walls and no passing traffic will ensure you a snug & quiet night’s sleep.Breakfast is served in the uncrowded dining room with only fresh produce being used. We also cater for vegetarians. Fresh local fish is available daily, which includes smoked salmon, local mackerel, kippers and smoked haddock. Tim & Shelley ... more less
