“What a great start to a holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2011

For our first trip to Cornwall in 60 years (!) it started off so well in the Little Leaf with Danny & Lee. Their friendliness, breakfasts and eating recommendations were all tops to make a great 3 day stay and eating breakfast with that view over the harbour put spring into every day!

We’d like to thank Danny & Lee for such a fantastic stay at the Little Leaf. We stayed for 2 nights on 13th & 14th October but wished we could have stayed longer - Danny & Lee made us feel so welcome & completely at home from the moment we arrived. We stayed in Room 5 which is on the top floor of the guest house, has all modern amenities, the most amazing views over St Ives & a very comfy bed! Danny & Lee were excellent hosts, providing us with all the information & recommendations we needed to have a really enjoyable stay. They even pre booked surf lessons for us at the local surf school at a discounted rate which I would highly recommend to anyone – we had so much fun! Breakfast everyday was delicious – you get to choose from a full English, fruit & toast or an alternative option that changes daily. Everything about this place is fantastic - we really can’t recommend staying at the Little Leaf enough & can’t wait to return!

We stayed at the Little Leaf B&B for 2 nights (9/10/11-10/10/11). Danny and Lee are a fantastic friendly couple who instantly make you feel very welcome, with offerings of hot tea and goodies on arrival and advice about what to do in St Ives thrown in for good measure. We stayed in Room 5 at the top of the house which has great views over the Harbour. The room itself was spotlessly clean, with all amenities and finally we find a wardrobe that for once has plenty of coat hangers!! My husband opted for the Danny sized breakfast and be warned its plentiful, so plentiful that he could only manage poached egg on toast the next morning. All the breakfast food was tasty and the service excellent. Both Lee and Danny make wonderful hosts who find time to converse with you about their local knowledge and their experiences. We would highly recommend this Guest House and this recommendation is from a couple that generally choose 4+ Star Hotels. Go and stay you won't be disappointed!! We wish them all the best for their forthcoming Wedding.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 5 but suspect they are all of a similar quality (Room 5 has great views).

My wife and I stayed for two night (Oct 6/7) and were very pleased with the everything. We were lucky enough to stay in room 2 which had wonderful views out to the harbour. Our room was very modern (but this did not ruin the 'quaintness' of the place) and is kept very clean.
Good choice for breakfast - hot, cold or daily special and all with generous portions.
Danny and Lee are both very friendly and accommodating and happy to answer any questions or pass on recommendations.
There is a honesty bar with wine/beer/cider and a large selection of DVDs and books for use.
The B&B is about a 4 minute walk to the main town area.

Thanks for a great stay. (Good luck with your wedding too)
Aaron and Jo.

We were welcomed with a beaming smile, cups of fresh coffee and most importantly homemade cookies. Danny and Lee have created a well laid out guest house with some great art work and other nice touches throughout. We received lots of advice about what to do and where to eat, supplemented by the iPad they have loaded with links in the living room.

Breakfast was great, from the artistically arranged chopped fruit to the tasty locally sourced sausages and poached eggs. Room 2 has great views of St Ives and all the comforts you need, I just wish we had stayed for longer and will definitely become a regular guest.

Little Leaf is located just a few minutes walk in to St Ives and benefits from it's location in terms of views and being next door to off street parking.

Room Tip: Room 2 has great views of St Ives and either the comfy chairs or table on the balcony are the perfec...

Danny and Lee are very professional and great hosts, made us feel very comfortable on our OE from NZ. Lots of information on St Ives and local areas, travel etc . Brekkyin a lovely room with a lovely view over St Ives, was very a very generous occasion fuelled by Danny's passion for food, which was much appreciated.Great view from the attic room, not quite so friendly to attain if your'e a senior, have more than a weekend bag to carry, however assistance was gratefully taken. also, the roof pitch in that room rather restricting but fabulously decorated.

Room Tip: Room 2 the best view, especially if you are there a few days. The attic has a lot of stairs to encou...

we stayed in the lovely Little Leaf for 4 nights 3 nights in room 4 a perfectly formed small room but very nice and then one night in room 2 which is superb.as we arrived at the hotel Danny was waiting with a drink which was well received after a bit of road rage in the car park but that was the one and only time we had a problem parking.As everyone says the food is very good although we are light breakfast eaters but people were saying when we stayed the full english was great.the one qustion is would we stay again and the answer is a first rate def YES.

two tips if you dont like a lot of stairs to go down to the town just walk a little further down the road and there is a more gradual walk down or up the hill and if you like bitter try the tribute i had far to much

well done danny & lee wish you all the success
