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...

Channings is a beautiful b&b set in a fantastic location close to the centre of St Ives. The room was very spacious with modern decoration and sea views. 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.

My husband and I spent a delightful 2 nights at Channings in St Ives last week. We had researched available accommodation options very closely before booking as one of our must-haves is parking. Not all establishments in St Ives offer parking as there is not much to be had !! There are a couple of public parking areas available but...

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 ....
