Headland House
Ranked #10 of 102 St Ives B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 March 2011

Headland House is like the home you wished you lived in. This is our third visit to stay with Mark and Fenella and I'm pleased to report that it was as lovely - if not better - than previous occasions. Standards just do not slip here and you always leave feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and full of renewed spirit for the daily grind! Mark and Fenella go out of their way to look after their guests and those little extras that you don't often see in other B&B's - scented candles, ambient music, reading/film fodder and spot on restaurant recommendations to name a few - really do raise the bar and make all the difference. We both travel a lot, both for work and pleasure and Headland House is still the place we're drawn to when we want to switch off, relax and be affordably pampered! Thank you, once again, for an amazing weekend! Can't wait to be back...

I stayed here with my Mum for our yearly holiday together (without the boys!) and it was simply lovely. Mark and Fenella were very welcoming - and extremely good chefs as breakfast was one of the best parts of the day! They catered well for my mum's gluten free diet and seemed to be very knowledgable about what she could and couldn't have. Our room was nicely decorated with a view of St Ives and if it wasn't so far away we'd go back as often as we could.

We stayed for only one night, and wished it could be longer, Mark and Fenella's attention to detail, friendliness, and hospitality were magnificent. We were able to relax, but information and help were at unobtrusively at hand if we needed it. Can't wait to stay again.

We first went to Headland House Hotel in June 2008 and been back twice since. I can't tell you all how much I love staying there and how nice everything is! Mark and Fenella are so lovely and always make us feel welcome - it's becoming home from home! You should definitely go there. The hotel has 6 beautiful bedrooms and we are on a mission to stay in all of them! 3 down - 3 to go!

From the moment that we arrived at Headland House Mark and Fenella made us completely welcome and at home. The rooms were beautifully decorated and very clean overlooking a lovely view of Carbis Bay. Both Mark and Fenella could not do enough for the both of us and the Breakfast was fantastic with a wide selection of dishes ranging from a full English to natural yoghurt with a fruit topping.
The whole weekend was thoroughly enjoyable and certainly is a place that i would go again and recommend to anyone who wishes to visit St Ives

Stayed at the headland house this weekend and cannot fault either the hotel or service at all. The owners Mark and Fenella are lovely and went out of their way to make our stay there enjoyable. The room with ensuite was lovely and had everything you could think of supplied. The breakfast was brilliant and had everything you could ask for cooked to order. Overall had a brilliant time and will definatley go back again soon.

Headland House is fantastic. It feels like a boutique hotel in every sense. Rooms are gorgeous and very hip (very Graham and Green style interiors) with colonial shutters, big comfy pocket spring beds and lovely bathrooms (ours had a roll-top bath).

Mark and Fenella are lovely and nothing is too much trouble. It's all the little touches that I was really impressed with which included: free complimentary tea, coffee and homemade cake (every afternoon), scented candles throughout the house and fresh lillies, books/DVD's, complimentary Sherry and Port and an honesty bar. They even provide cosy fleece blankets if you want to sit in the lovely garden on an evening and the breakfasts are fab!

Couldn't recomend it enough and I think the rates are very reasonable considering what you get for your money.
