Just returned from a 7 night stay in the Rathlena. We had the Premier Room as there were 4 of us. The room was fabulous with stunning sea views which makes it extra special when enjoying a drink on on the balcony! Everything in the room was spotless and all you could ever need eg tea, coffee with Evelyns amazing mugs and there were also biscuits replenished daily. We especially loved the shower and the massage rocking chair! Our hosts Evelyn and Tony were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble, no matter what you asked of them! My sons wanted to connect a PS3 to enable them to watch a movie in the evenings and when we got back an extension wire was in place ready.The breakfasts each morning were superb and very plentiful such as cereals, fruit juices, baked goods, pancakes, cheeses, yoghurts, cooked breakfasts to order as well as tea and coffee which were all served in Evelyn's lovely china. As well as being the perfect hostess and so friendly, Evelyn has impeccable taste and style. The whole house is simply gorgeous!
Another great thing about the Rathlena is car parking. You can leave your car and take a walk into St Ives which takes about 5 mins as downhill all the way. Coming back up takes a little longer, unless you are really fit! However there is a wonderful bus service which costs £1 for adults 50p for Kids or a taxi which average £4.
Thank you both for a brilliant holiday and your home would be my first choice when back in St Ives!
