We stay at Rivendell as often as we possibly can. Fantastic clean and comfortable rooms, with all the little extras that you may forget. Good to have parking. Only a very short walk down to the town, bit of a hill to come back but gets easier everytime you do it, or get a taxi or bus, not expensive. Stayed... More

This was our fifth stay at this outstanding and friendly guest house. We stayed 14 nights at the beginning of July and Angela and Barrie were once again wonderful hosts. The breakfasts are lush and the selection is great. The downstairs lounge is a lovely, comfortable and relaxing room, ideal if you fancied a reading session or watching a large... More

If you want a warm and friendly welcome ,comfy beds in an immaculate bedroom, super breakfasts with plenty of choice, then the Rivendell is the perfect place to stay. Although only a short walk to town, it's in a nice quiet area . We spent 5 lovely days there and we are really looking forward to our next visit.

Rivendell guest house , St. Ives We stayed for two nights and found our stay pleasant and comfortable. Nice little touch upon arrival with the drink and cake! We selected Rivendell as it was the best balance between good online reviews and price, although we did feel that all the accomodation in St. Ives was a little overpriced. We found... More

When it comes to making people feel welcome Angela & Barrie have it down to a fine art. Nothing is too much trouble with Angela going the extra mile with a pot of tea and home made cake upon our arrival.The breakfast cooked by Barrie was first class and always set you up for the day.The room was spotlessly clean...

This B&B is welcoming, clean, tastefully decorated (no multiple florals here!) and in a magnificent place with a view to die for from my room no. 5. Breakfast was very good and I would definitely stay there again.

Our second visit and it was as good as we remembered. The rooms are big enough for a holiday need, are clean and tastefully presented. We were lucky enough to have room 5, with the view over the harbour. Barry and Angela are marvellous hosts, very knowledgable on the area and fabulous breakfasts
