It was half term madness and St Ives was awash with families and tourists all enjoying this very special place in the West Country…….Tim, ‘Mine Host’ of Cornerways sorted out my parking and we were all set for a few days of sheer indulgence in this wonderful costal resort.
I have stayed many times at Cornerways and the standard has never faltered and always with lots of attention to detail and a whole variety of guests who are all made to feel very special with the customer care element being top of Cornerways priorities.
Tim’s breakfasts are legendary and there is always a varied selection available to satisfy the most discerning patrons, including his signature tomato dish and some very fresh ‘Catch of the Day’.
Cornerways is both quaint and bijou with historic links to famous author, Daphne De Maurier.
What more to be said about this top quality venue, affordable, clean, great location and a proprietor that cares.
- 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
