“Comfortable, Cosy Relaxing Retreat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2012

We escaped to the Portarlington at very short notice, having found our original booking not suitable for us.

The owner hosts are charming and their local now ledge is second to none. Our room was extremely comfortable with lots of extra touches that made it a home from home. Things like fresh milk, a delicious breakfast each morning and really lovely fresh bed linen. The owners work hard to make everyone welcome and the place is spotlessly clean.

The location is perfect to walk into St Ives for an evening, and then to walk off your supper up the hill on the way back.

This place is a credit to St Ives, I would definitely recommend it, we found it by accident but will certainly return!

Really nice guest house, close to the beach and town shops.
Super breakfast, served by a battle-axe of a land lady....(actually she is great fun!)
Would return any day!

Stayed at Portarlington for three nights and would recommend to others looking for good base to explore south west Cornwall - very friendly B&B within walking distance of St Ives main beach and Tate gallery. Located on quiet street in residential area with parking spaces available. Good cooked breakfast, with fridge in room and very reasonable price.
