Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Wheal Trenwith, the holiday apartment & received fantastic customer service right from the start. Ken & Cheryl were so helpful, friendly & warm & the apartment was lovely & brilliant value. The cream tea on arrival just added to the great service - thanks so much x

What a nice place to stay while in St Ives! The Old Count House is managed by a friendly couple doing their best to make you feel welcome. The sea view from my room certainly added value. Close to almost everything, beach and shops within a few minutes walk. Breakfast very good and quite a few possibilities. If they add freshly squeezed juice it's top notch!

Room Tip: If wifi is a priority do ask because the present wifi works not in all rooms. You might have to use...

The hotel is excellent: impeccably clean and comfortable. The rooms are big and many have sea view. The breakfast is simply perfect. The cost is totally fair. The owners are kind and friendly. We would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Those with sea view are great.

My fiance and I adore St Ives and decided to return to The Old Count House for the second year running, after a brilliant first stay. We were not disappointed! Cheryl and Ken greeted us like old friends, and the place now feels like a home from home. We had a very comfortable room with a good hot shower and you can always rely on a fantastic breakfast to set you up for a day of exploring! It's a 10 minute walk to the sea front, where we spent most evenings. We really valued the friendly atmosphere and feel this B&B offered fantastic value for money. We will definitely return!!

We stayed 5 days at The Old Count House, our room was very clean and the bed was so comfortable. The breakfasts were great with plenty of home cooked dishes to choose from. Our hosts Ken and Cheryl were very friendly, they have a great home we will definitely stay again.

A very good stay. The location was great, even though the walk to the town centre was easier going down than returning uphill. Good to share the history of The Count House and observe the old photos. Very welcoming and helpful hosts with good local knowledge. The room was small, adequate but the bed was not the most comfortable. We had some difficulty finding this B&B and the address could be more defined.eg off The Burrows.

stayed first in Wheal trenwith, Cheryl & Ken's studio apartment, then in their guest house. both were fantastic, very clean, comfortable, everything you needed. Breakfast in the B&B was lovely ( especially rec the scrambled eggs, delicious & creamy! ), and Cheryl makes lovely scones! Ken & Cheryl are lovely hosts, making us very welcome, and took time to chat and make us feel at home.
Great location for St Ives, just a 10 min walk from the centre of the town, and also easy to leave St Ives ( without having to navigate through it's narrow streets! ) to explore other parts of Cornwall. Will definitely be back, loved the studio apartment, trying already to work out holiday dates to book up again!
