We have just returned from our stay at Cornerways and cannot praise it high enough. We stayed in the Daphne room with our eldest daughter and grandaughter in a travel cot and it was plenty big enough for us. The rooms are individual and boutique style with lovely bathrooms and are so comfortable with all you need. The dining room is gorgeous and the breakfasts are fabulous with so much to choose from. We had a four seated table (the same for the whole stay) and I changed seats just to have a different view of the room. Tim is a truly wonderful host, he is so genuinely friendly and helpful without being obstrusive which to us is exactly what we want. The position of Cornerways is ideal with 2 minute walks through to the harbour and Porthgwidden beach. The ambience sat outside with a bottle of wine on an evening is wonderful. We will most definitely return to Cornerways without a doubt and Tim helped to make out visit to beautiful St Ives an absolute treat.
- 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
