“5 minute walk from everywhere + car park!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2009

Myself & partner stayed here for 3 nights in august, i have been to St. Ives a good few times so knew exactly where the place was and more importantly what an absolute pain it is to park the car, so to find a place thats a 5 minute walk from the beach, harbour or town centre (& the tate) that actually has car parking, has to be a bonus.
The room (#3) had a view onto Porthmeor beach, its has freeview tv which was great to keep up with the football on sky sports news! the usual hot drinks and is very clean, i`ll agree with a previous poster on here that the bathroom was small, but i don`t understand anyone making a big deal of it, after all, exactly what do you wanna do in there???
Breakfast was a good choice really and i for one can have no complaints about the amount, the full english was really nice, like the fact that its locally sourced as well, there`s as much cereal, yoghurt and fruit you can want, also plenty of toast and cornish butter.

Andrew and naomi are good hosts and help you where they can, but keep out of your way.There`s no way you can complain about the price or the service really, good value place, many thanks.
We are walkers so loved the South West Path, making it to Pendeen Watch Lighthouse, then up into Pendeen for a pint at the Radjid pub, yes i thought it sounded a bit like a curry house, but its not, and i can wholly recommend a pint of St. Austell`s Liquid Sunshine when you do get there.

The room was very well decorated and immaculately clean, and it had an en-suite bathroom - albeit the smallest one I had ever seen.

The view was nice, although I found the centre of town and the beaches to be quite a hilly walk away.

I was very happy to have parking included.

I found the service a bit impersonal and lacking at times. The serving sizes at breakfast were quite miserly and my concerns about this were neither acknowledged nor addressed.

For the price, I think we could have found much better value.

Wheal-e-mine is a guesthouse that ticked most of the boxes for me at a very reasonable price. Our room had a large picture window that overlooked Porthmeor beach; a more stunning view I have yet to find in fifteen years of visiting the town. The rooms are cleaned to a very high standard and have modern showers fitted en suite. I would recommend the room on the top floor in particular, since this has an adjacent shower room that is larger than most en suite facilities to be found in St. Ives guesthouses. After years of parking expensively in the town's carparks or else parking in back streets and hoping for the best it was particularly pleasing to discover a guesthouse that offers free parking. Wheal-e-mine's parking spaces are conveniently located directly behind the guesthouse. This removed the need to punctuate our stay with ticket renewals and also gave us some piece of mind that the car was in a safe place. Andy and Naomi who run Wheal-e-mine are hospitable hosts. On our last day Andy even came into the town to find me in order to return an item inadvertantly left behind in the room! Doubtless there are more luxuriant places to stay in St. Ives but at this price Wheal-e-mine would be hard to beat.
