We stayed here for 4 nights in September 2013 and loved every minute of it. Carol and Mike are the perfect hosts, providing everything you need and happy to chat at any time (and very knowledgeable about the area). Our room (the Pilchard Press) was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Fantastic shower too! We also loved the guest lounge (with lots of magazines and local information). Breakfasts are delicious; we particularly liked the fresh fruit, Greek yogurt and pancakes.
The location couldn't be better; the Digey is right in the centre of St Ives and close to the Harbour and Porthmeor Beach.
We look forward to returning here and meeting up with Carol and Mike again......why would we want to stay anywhere else?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- THE KEEP B&B occupies a unique, central position tucked away in the heart of coastal St Ives, only a few yards from Porthmeor Beach and the Harbour, The Tate, and the town itself. With no passing traffic at all, THE KEEP, a recently converted 16th Century Pilchard factory, offers a rare sense of peace and quiet, although the many amenities, restaurants and coastal walks are right on our doorstep. We provide a tasteful and relaxing bolthole exclusively for one couple, with sole use of a comfortable dining/living room. Visit us for a romantic stay in the Pilchard Press room, with KS four poster bed, generous storage, large flat-screen TV and spacious drench-shower en-suite. Enjoy a delicious locally-sourced breakfast in what used to be the central, now glass topped, courtyard, then step outside and explore. (NB For two couples travelling together, or two singles wanting separate rooms, we can offer a second bedroom on request.) ... more less
