Very close to village and beaches, and quiet, warm welcome, very clean and cosy,delicious breakfast. Would love to come again and enjoy the hospitality of Susan and her husband. Extra point is the parking in the back yard, important in St Ives.

We had room #1- lovely, lovely view. Spacious bathroom, and delicious breakfast. Most of all, gracious hosts. Susan and Marcus were welcoming and friendly, and we truly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a good location, sort of above the train station and the town.

Lovely little B&B within easy reach of St Ives village , need to be mindful that St Ives is all hills unless on the harbour front or beaches . Marcus and Susan make this a really comfortable experience, real home from home with the added valve of a fantastic breakfast which will set you up for the day ahead ....

Stayed @ Channings for 3 nights with my brother to explore Cornwall. Perfect location, stunning views from the bedroom window/balcony and great hosts; Modern finish of the property with all those small decorative touches; spotlessly clean with good breakfast and parking. Good base for exploring St Ives and surrounding coastline!

I booked this property for my parents; they had an absolutely great stay : "A massive room, immaculate property and room, a very comfortable bed. The breakfast great, lots of choice. Susan is a great hostess and gives good advise for local restaurant and visits". Many thanks Susan for making their weekend memorable. Keep up the good work!
