Lovely stay, lovely breakfast, off road parking etc. Love this place and Susan is such a nice host. Nothing was to much trouble and the B&B was first class. I would definitely recommend it. It's a short walk to the town, everything is in easy reach.

We stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. To begin with, the welcome from Susan is warm and friendly, instantly making you feel at home. The rooms are decorated in a cool, contemporary but homely style, with comfortable beds and furnishings, modern bathroom fittings, and are scrupulously clean. The views from our room (8) is simply stunning,...

Channings in St. Ives is a fantastic place to stay. Unfortunately we only stayed 1 night, but we were really happy with our experience there and the lovely welcoming feel from our hosts. Everything is in walking distance - beaches, cafes and restaurants. The rooms are spotless and clean with amazing sea views (if you book one). Plus a really...

When my wife and myself go for a weekend escape to Cornwall, the Channings is undoubtedly our romantic nest! The rooms are big, beautiful and some of then come with a breath-taking St Ives seaview. Every day before the breakfast we could make our order selecting all the varous options. The breakfast is top quality and served in a beautifully...

The host Susan gave us a warm welcome and was very helpful with providing information about where to visit during our stay. The breakfasts were delicious and served with a smile :-)...

We had a really lovely break in St. Ives. The Channings was a great place to stay, from its beautiful location with stunning sea views to a delicious breakfast with every possible option. The place was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Nothing was too much trouble and little touches were appreciated, for example Easter eggs on our table at breakfast....

Susan and Marcus made us feel very welcome from the moment I picked up the phone to book. We actually stayed in June 2015 and I can see by the photos they have continued their upgrade of the facilities into a modern and contemporary guest house - London on Sea! We enjoyed a spectacular week with them and I must...

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.
