“Perfect accommodation ”
Reviewed 14 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

If you really want excellent holiday accommodation in St Ives then no 23 is for you.
You’ll be met by Tim at the corner house B&B who will give you your key, plus all the information you need.
Accommodation is perfectly situated not far from the sea front.
You will have a private parking space next to the front door, which is nice.
Not the biggest studio apartment but it is more than adequate. Nice comfy bed, well equipped kitchen, spacious lounge area and a modern bathroom.
Only one large radiator but more than warmed up the room, so no worries about getting cold. Large tv if you have time to watch.
Lots of nice touches such as lovely big mirrors on the walls make it feel very homely.
Corner shop a few paces away, but your only 5 mins from st Ives bay, so you are close to every thing you need.
Very much home from home !

“Fantastic location, parking, we will be back!”
Reviewed 12 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This was our first stay at this apartment and we had a lovely time. The location is perfect, near the beach, close to the old town and it has parking!! Tim could could not do enough for us to make our stay perfect. The heating was left on for our comfort. The furniture is well presented, fully equipped with everything you could think of. We will stay again if it is available. A*****

“Great stay in 23”
Reviewed 16 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Lovely studio with a modern finish. Great facilities and a very close walk to harbour. A minute walk will get you to the gorgeous beach. Local shop which sells everything is at top of entrance to apartments. Parking space a godsend in St. Ives.
Open plan room with comfy double bed. Had a great stay.

Super place in a brilliant location close to the beaches and art galleries. The studio had everything we needed. The owners were very accommodating, friendly and helpful. Hopefully we will come back one day.

“Fabulous stay in idyllic location”
Reviewed 17 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have just returned from our 2nd stay in the Old Salthouse and we are still smiling 3 days later! Thank you Shirley and Tim for another lovely stay. The Old Salthouse may not have views, but when you are literally steps away from Porthmeor Beach via your own secret passageway - who cares!! We had Wine and Hot Chocolate on the beach and watched the sun go down. Perfect! We hope to return again soon! Thank you.

“Fabulous Family Holiday”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

The apartment was excellent, very clean, perfectly equipped and an amazing location!!! I stayed for a week with my partner and 8 year old son. We had more than enough space and the sofa bed was spacious and easy to put up and down. The apartment had everything we needed with the luxury of a car parking space outside the door and a couple of deck chairs that we used every day at the beach! It's hard to imagine how close and handy the beach access is we were able to pop back for drinks, snacks and forgotten buckets and spades easily! The convenience store at the top of the driveway was very handy for stocking up with food and drinks too! I can't recommend the old salthouse enough I'm certain we will be back and have already recommended to a friend! Thanks for a fab week xx

“Excellent location, private,close to all amenities.”

Our first visit to the Old Salthouse and we weren't disappointed. The apartment itself was very well appointed with everything you need for a relaxing holiday, we found it spacious and light, the car parking space was an added bonus. The private access to the beach was a delight as was the beach it's self. The apartment is only a short walk from the harbour and main shopping and entertainment although you wouldn't know it was so close as the barnaloft complex is so quiet (if you discount the gulls but you soon got used to it and it wasn't intrusive). Shirley and Tim we had an excellent week and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Old Salthouse to family and friends, we will certainly be making a return visit.
