6th January 2024:

We have now stayed here annually for several years and plan to for many more. The hosts are warm and welcoming and go out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. The breakfasts are always beautifully cooked and presented, the food is of consistently high quality with immaculate service. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and comfortable with an easy-to-use shower and fresh linen and towels. The hosts are always ready to offer advice on local weather, amenities and attractions. We would thoroughly recommend The Olive Branch.

Tips:

Tate Gallery Local cinema Restaurants: By the Sea; Host; Street Food. Many good coffee shops eg Sea of Coffee Lots of independent shops and galleries Coastal walks - easy to Hayle, much harder to Zennor! Excellent, cheap bus services (bus station 5 minures walk from the B & B). Also local rail services.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Olive Branch. Location was great and with the added bonus of parking. It was within easy walking distance to the centre of town and the beaches. Justin was very helpful about where to visit and which pubs and restaurants to try. The room was super, spotless and with a sea view. Breakfast was delicious - great choices and beautifully prepared. Nothing was too much trouble, both Justin and Julie were lovely as was gorgeous Arthur. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

Tips:

Not too far to visit St Michael’s Mount and Land’s End. The Rum and Crab Shack - a quirky venue with sea views. The Sloop pub was great - traditional pub serving decent food.

I throughly enjoyed my 5 night stay at the olive branch. Julie and Justin are such lovely people who made each breakfast a joy. Their breakfasts were provided very promptly and where of a high standard. There was always fresh milk and chilled water provided throughout the day. On my last day I was provided with a substantial breakfast to take away with me due to leaving early. My room was lovely, bright and airy with a balcony offering views of St Ives. I think the favourite part of my stay was big fusses with the lovely Arthur, the resident 4 legged fur baby! As far as I’m aware the B&B doesn’t accept young children and for me personally that was a bonus because it meant I had a quiet and relaxing stay.

Tips:

The olive branch is perfectly situated with everything you could need within easy reach. The train and bus station is just a few minutes walk which is ideal if you don’t drive. There are I think 4 beaches which again are very local and the southwest coast path can be accessed easily for those who want to stretch their legs further. The sun sets from the chapel on the island are absolutely amazing. All shops and restaurants are also within easy reach and the restaurant’s I tried were very accommodating for single people.

Friendly, welcoming & helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast excellent with a great choice for everyone. Enjoyed our daily chats about anything & everything!!!

Tips:

Lots of great places to eat within easy walking distance - the Lifeboat Inn, the Balcony, Peppers, the Mermaid, the Balancing Eel ( take away fish & chips, best eaten sat under the shelter on Smeaton's pier) Guided walk around St.Ives - lots of interesting facts & information. A visit to the Museum & the Barbara Hepworth a must. Just stroll around & discover all St. Ives has to offer,

Warm and friendly hosts - it was a real pleasure to be made so welcome into your home. Breakfast was top notch and a relaxed affair - with lots of hot coffee. We really liked the additional tender care given to the room, with hidden factual books . We will have no hesitation in returning !

Tips:

St. Ives has lots to see and do, and we enjoyed eating at the beachside cafe opposite the Tate - this was much better than the Tates cafe. Equally, the Union pub was a relaxed and friendly place just to have a drink. We went to all of the recommended sites but really enjoyed the actual St.I see museum - it may be a bit cluttered but it gave a real appreciation to the history of St.Ives .

We stayed for 10 nights at the Olive Branch. Justin, Julie & Arthur were a great team! Always friendly and helpful and a source of knowledge as regards things to do and see! The breakfast was marvellous, with a great range of options for all kinds of dietary needs. Arthur is a great being, sometimes he inspected our - very clean and very nicely decorated - rooms just to make sure we’re comfortable! ;-) Very commendable!

Tips:

Carbis Bay, all the beaches in St. Ives, walks along the coast. Definitely the Tate Modern and the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden.

This is a great B&B, clean, comfortable, great breakfasts and lovely hosts who make you feel so welcome, especially Arthur their well behaved laid back Tibetan who is adorable. We have stayed at The Olive Branch for a number of years now and know they have many repeat guests which speaks for itself! If you are looking for somewhere for a quiet nights sleep, within a 5-10 minute walk into town, bus and train station and with car parking, situated above the beautiful Porthminster beach, you will not be disappointed.

I had a bacon & egg sandwich & a carton of orange juice which I ate on the train journey.

Julie and Justin are excellent hosts at The Olive Branch. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Bottled cold water and fresh milk supplied daily for your room. Help yourself from the fridge at the bottom of the stairs. Excellent choices for breakfast which are cooked to perfection. They have a wide range of knowledge of the area and can supply you with lots of places to visit in and around St.Ives

Tips:

The Mermaid seafood restaurant is excellent but you need to make sure you book well in advance for any restaurant’s in the area. I also recommend Peppers the Italian restaurant and The Beach restaurant serving locally caught fish. Porthminster beach is excellent for spending a day in a deckchair, eating facilities there are very good to. Barbara Hepworth museum and sculpture garden is worth a visit and not far from Porthmeor Beach where you can get a coffee and a lovely slice of lemon meringue in the cafe.

The bed was quite comfortable and there was ample storage space for clothing etc. Breakfasts were always spot on with plenty of choices. We would highly recommend the Olive Branch.

Tips:

For people who are visiting St.Ives for the first time you will find 5 marvelous beaches with clear seas for relaxing and plenty of walks either coastal or just browsing the many shops throughout the quaint cobbled streets. There are numerous bars, restaurants and takeaway food establishments to enjoy (watch out for the seagulls)

The hosts, Justin and Juiie are super friendly, kind and helpful. The house is lovely and everything is provided that you could possibly need in your room. Spotlessly clean and shiny. Comfortable armchair in room for relaxing after a busy day. Excellent choice of breakfasts, two sittings. Five plus for my hosts who made their B & B a home from home.

Tips:

Hosts will help you with this plus the location is so near to St. Ives centre you only have to walk down the road to make a choice.

We first visited the Olive Branch in 2014 and been back every year since. The breakfasts are superb and rooms are very clean. But what makes the Olive Branch so inviting is Justin and Julie lovely people always happy to help nothing is to much trouble and happy to give any advice regarding local services or attractions. Would recommend the Olive Branch very highly and it’s definitely a 10/10 Bed and Breakfast

We loved our stay at the olive branch. Very comfortable bed and impeccably clean. The breakfast choice is excellent and cooked to perfection. Justin and Julie are wonderful hosts with a great knowledge of St Ives. We loved it so much that we have already booked for next year and 2025.

Tips:

St Ives is a lovely place and easy walks to Carbis Bay and Hayle along the coastal path. The Coaster bus with its open top is a great way to travel to Lands End, Penzance etc. There are many art galleries and my favourite ones are the Penwith and St Ives art society. Barbara Hepworth’s garden is a magical place to visit if the weather is good.

Thank you for making our stay that extra bit special, for going that extra mile and ensuring that we enjoyed our stay.

Perfect location within easy walking distance of beaches, town centre and harbour. Immaculately kept and decorated rooms and bathrooms with all amenities you could ask for. Another plus is the free parking. Justin, Julie and Arthur are the perfect hosts, making you feel more than welcome, even at their busiest times. Julies breakfasts are legend. Justin is ever helpful as a font of knowledge about the weather, happenings and general Cornwall / St. Ives goings on and suggestions of where to go and what to do. Arthur is just the icing on the cake, keeping a watchful eye on his compatriots. All in all a fantastic place to stay.

For us - and, we imagine, for most other people who visit St Ives - The Olive Branch is just the perfect location! Justin, Julie and Arthur are wonderful hosts. Julie’s breakfasts are legendary and Justin’s knowledge of all things local is amazing. Arthur just makes you go … awww 🥰 All of the rooms that we have stayed in are always immaculate, spacious and comfortable. The Olive Branch is perfectly placed within 5 minutes of the centre of the town and Porthminster beach. All the other beaches are an easy 10/15min walk away through the town past shops, restaurants and bars. And the best part is … as parking is available at The Olive Branch there’s no hassle going out and about! Stress free holidaying! If you’re planning a trip to St Ives check here first and you might be lucky enough that they can find a room for you. We’re already booked for next year. Thank you guys for another wonderful stay this year ❤️

A great welcome by Justin, followed by the time he spent showing us the excellent features and provisions provided in delightful Room 3, with its power shower in the immaculate en suite, which set us off on a positive feel about this B&B! Justin was also very helpful in explaining the map of St Ives and imparting his vast local knowledge which enabled us to make the most of our first visit to this lovely area. Julie is charming too and an expert in the kitchen providing us with very superior breakfasts each morning! The Olive Branch is spotlessly clean with top quality linens with the added bonus of parking on site.

Excellent breakfast selection to choose from each day including fruit salad and yoghurt, and full English breakfast. Room was clean as well as being quiet due to being off the main road. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. If you are a dog lover then the presence of Arthur the Tibetan Terrier is a bonus.

Tips:

The accommodation does require a bit of a steep uphill walk from the beaches which may be difficult for some especially as one gets older. We have stayed at many St Ives properties over the years and can honestly say that this is on our preferred list.

Very conveniently situated B&B in a lovely family home in St Ives. Justin and Julie are very welcoming hosts and have a huge knowledge of the local area. The rooms are spotless, with good supplies of tea and coffee to make yourself. The property has parking which is like diamond dust in St Ives. Julie cooked a delicious breakfast each morning, and nothing was too much trouble. This is our second time visiting The Olive Branch and we had the pleasure of meeting the newest member of the team Arthur. He greeted us each morning at breakfast with a good morning woof and a tail wag. We will definitely find an excuse to visit The Olive Branch again next time we are in the UK.

Tips:

The town and quayside are a hive of activity and the shops are vibrant. However you need to be prepared for lots of walking up and down hills and walking on cobblestones so wear good trainers. One day my phone app told me that we had walked the equivalent of 58 flights of stairs and all we did was walk around the area. And beware of the seagulls. They are as big as cats and they work as a team in an effort to get your pastie or chips to drop on the ground. They are ruthless and will sneak up from behind you just to give added surprise. It is a great mornings entertainment to sit on the benches between the beach and the pastie shop and watch them work.

We were really lucky to book this B&B last minute - and we found a gem in St Ives! The B&B was easy to find and had the benefit of a parking space which took away the stress of having to find parking in St Ives. The parking area, at the front of the B&B, had space for 5 cars. This meant that some cars were blocked in but this was never a problem - Justin, the host, was on hand to discuss arrangements for who needed to be parked at the front if anyone was driving out of St Ives for the day! The location of The Olive Branch is ideal - it is located within a short walking distance to the beach and shops. It is situated on a hill in a nice quiet area. Check-in times were clear and we received a warm and friendly welcome upon arrival. Our room was lovely - we stayed in Room 4 and, although it was small, it had everything that we we needed and was nice and cosy. The decor was fresh and we had a little en-suite shower and toilet. Everything was spotless and the facilities were well thought out. There was fresh milk in a fridge at the bottom of the stairs, which you could help yourself to to use in your room. There was a nice little pot of biscuits along with tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The process for breakfast was straight-forward - we were asked to fill in what we would like the day before - and this ensured a really smooth running at breakfast time. Cooked by Julie, the breakfast was delicious with lots of choices. Across our stay, we tried the fruit salad, smoked salmon and scrambled egg and the veggie breakfast. The homemade veggie sausages were delicious!! The atmosphere at breakfast time was perfect - this a very welcoming B&B and Justin and Julie were very attentive. Arthur the dog was also very well behaved and made us feel at home! Justin and Julie clearly care about their guests. They offered helpful advice and recommendations about the area and showed a genuine interest in our stay. We were sad to leave and can’t wait to visit again!

Tips:

The location was fantastic - a short walk to two beaches and stunning views when walking over the hill to the next beach. A lovely place to visit for shopping in independent artsy shops.

Excellent accommodation and breakfast, The Olive Tree is within walking distance of the centre of St Ives. Justin and Julie create a warm and friendly atmosphere and are always available to help and advise about local events and places of interest to view etc. They make the perfect hosts. We would throughly recommend The Olive Tree.

Tips:

There are a number of places to eat in St Ives and in the surrounding area.

So pleased that we booked The Olive Branch, Justin & Julie are very welcoming and friendly hosts. Their B&B is extremely clean and well presented, we stayed in room 3 which had a lovely sea view, a very comfortable bed, an excellent hot shower, hairdryer and a good quality toiletries and only a short walk from the town.. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of traditional or eggs Benedict etc, all prepared to order. We had a fabulous stay and highly recommend The Olive Branch.

Tips:

Recommend a visit to The Bier Huis, for moules marnier and a wide choice of Belgium beers. La Casita in Carbis Bay for delicious tapas. A 6mile walk on the SW coast to Zennor, a refreshing beer at The Tinners arms and then the bus back to St Ives and finally if the rib-rides are running, do take a trip as it is definitely worth the thrilling fast ride out to the lighthouse to see the seals.

Justin & Julie, We had a wonderful stay at The Olive Branch, our room (5) was so bright and comfortable and very welcoming to come back to each day! And thank you for the most wonderful breakfasts, We did like the breakfast booking idea as well and Waffle Wednesday was a real treat! And thank you for all the tips on where to go and what to do and how to get around St Ives and the surrounding area. St Ives is a lovely place and we do intend to return!! Thank you again for a wonderfull holiday, it was such a shame to have to leave early? And please say hello to Arthur, please give him a napkin from Jan, he did like her toes in the mornings! Dave & Jan Searle,

Tips:

St Ives itself was such a lovely place to visit, all the beaches were brilliant and we had intended to walk around Carbis bay on our last day. Away from St Ives, we recommend a visit to St Michaels mount and Marazion, which is a really good day out on its own as is Newlyn bay on a windy day. We also visited Sennen cove which has some amazing views again on a very windy day, very bracing, unfortunately we ran out of time to walk around to Lands end? One of our highlights was to go to a performance at the Minack theatre, we saw a performance of the proms at the Minack but we would recommend a visit to see a performance there, a special place in an amazing setting! On the subject of local restaurants, we did have a lovely meal at the Pedn Olva, and a couple of nice meals in the Union, as a lot of the restaurants were booked up but the food was very nice as was the Ale! We did have a meal booked for our last night at the seafood cafe but unfortunately we had to leave early? But one place we do recommend when visiting St Ives is The Olive Branch and we would love to return!!! Dave and Jan Searle

Justin and Julie are super, welcoming hosts. They take time to have a chat with you about your day and recommend attractions, places to eat etc., with lots of local knowledge. The room was spotless and has a large TV and great powerful shower. We stayed in Room 5 which has a lovely Juliet balcony with a view of the sea. There is lots of choice at breakfast and special diets are accomodated. Breakfast servings are generous and delicious. Arthur the dog is adorable and an entertaining character and will steal your serviette and teabag given a chance! Having a parking place included in your stay is a real bonus too. We will definitely be back!

Tips:

We were grateful that Justin had warned us to book restaurants months in advance as there are many more people staycationing this year. We recommend the Bean Inn in Carbis Bay, Thalay Thai and the Sea Room if you like Tapas style meals and our favourite bar was the Belgian Bier Huis which has a huge beer menu and also many gins and liqueurs and tasty tapas and serves great coffee but not open till midday. My favourite morning coffee was at the Canary Cafe on Fore Street.

Booked here after reading other reviews and can honestly say everything about this place is perfect. Julie is a brilliant host and gave us all the information we needed about St Ives when we arrived and couldn't do enough for us. Our room (5) was spotless and comfortable with all the facilities you could possibly need. Breakfast was delicious with so much to choose from. The town centre and beach is virtually around the corner so not far to walk. All in all, a perfect place to stay in St Ives and we wont look at staying anywhere else whenever we come back. P.s Have to mention Arthur the dog, such a lovely dog who made our breakfast times really enjoyable.

Tips:

Would recommend booking restaurants well in advance as they're fully booked for at least a week.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found you both very friendly and helpfull. The breakfast choices was great with a good selection. The food was very fresh and was hot and well cooked. We loved Arthur and felt very welcome in your home. The reason for a 3 for the location was because of our abilities to get about. We hadn't realised how hilly St.Ives is and the lack of parking made getting about challenging.

Tips:

With the Covid situation we found eating out tricky as we hadn't booked anywhere before we came and we wished we had taken your advise. We found Becks resteraunt in Corbis Bay was very good and would recommend that. We also loved the bus trip. The Paradise park was also very good.

I enjoyed my stay in this lovely B and B. The room was fine and very comfortable - shame about the seagulls calling early morning but this is true for all of St Ives. The breakfasts were excellent as was the attention and friendly assistance of the owners - and Arthur. I hope to stay there again in the future and will definitely recommend to friends. Thank you both for making my stay so enjoyable.

Definitely book at most of the good restaurants - do not want to mention particular ones as things may change over time - best to ask the Olive Brach!

The breakfast was outstanding and we really couldn’t have asked for anything more, thank you Julie and Justin

Tips:

The town is about 10 mins walk which is great going down but not going up but don’t late that put you off. The Thai restaurant “ Talay “ on the seafront is Superb as is The Lifeboat Pub, The balancing eel.

The Olive Branch is just the most welcoming and homely b&b we have stayed in and that is all down to Julie & Justin who are so friendly and made our stay absolutely perfect. The location is perfect for the town and beaches and inside all the original features of the house add to the quality. The rooms are spotlessly clean as of course is the whole place. Breakfast was absolutely lovely and so much choice. Everything is in place to accommodate the current Covid situation with staggered breakfast times which is a really good idea. The whole experience is just made by Justin and Julie who are so friendly and knowledgeable about the area and always will stop and chat and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you so much for going to the trouble of making us some food to travel home with as we missed breakfast as we left early in the morning. Just a really lovely thought which we thought just shows what a thoughtful couple you are. We must also give a big mention to the third member of the family, the lovely George.

Tips:

I recommend a trip to some of the local towns nearby as well as St. Ives. I personally enjoyed Zennor and Sennen cove. A hike around Land's End is beautiful as well!

Thank-you Julie, Justin and George for an absolutely fabulous stay in beautiful St Ives. The attention to detail, cleanliness and quality were second to none. Our hosts were very friendly, informative and welcomed us into their home. We booked for next year before we left as we were so delighted with this superior guest experience. Breakfast was superbly presented and plentiful.

Tips:

What a resort, and we were particularly lucky to have scorching weather for our stay. The guesthouse is in a very good location, particularly for the Northern-soul event we attended; all local pubs, bars and restaurants. From our room we had a beautiful view of Porthminster beach and the harbour. This is a very scenic area of coastline and not one to be missed!

The Olive Branch is a lovely, Guest House, in a great location. Julie & Justin are great hosts, & provide excellent facilities, including a high quality breakfast, rooms, and service. They were friendly, extremely helpful, and gave us plenty of travel advice during our stay. The rooms are clean, modern, & have all you need including toiletries. They made us feel very welcome, and we loved out stay with them in St Ives. I look forward to staying with them again if I return. Would highly recommend a stay at The Olive Branch to anyone visiting the area. Fantastic B&B and people.

Tips:

There is a regular bus service taking you back up the hill to the Guest House (from the Square beside Barclays Bank/St Ives Cinema area). This costs £1 per adult one way. This is really handy as we found the hill & steps difficult to climb. If visiting the area I would recommend the Leach Pottery, Barbara Hepworth museum/gardens, St Ives for shopping, Porthminster Beach, & The Minack theatre.

What a lovely place to stay & lovely hosts! Julie, Justn and George were the most wonderful hosts and very helpful with recommendations of things to visit in the local area. This b&b is very close to the downtown/ harbor in St. Ives which is absolutely beautiful. I'd recommend staying here if you go!

Tips:

I enjoyed walking to the chapel on the hill in St Ives, buying a Cornish pasty and having a cream tea. The coffee lounge is a nice coffee shop in the downtown area- not far at all from the b&b and I had a cream tea at The Market Place and the scones there were delicious! For Cornish pasty, I liked the ones I bought from the Cornish Bakery. I also visited sennen cove and lands end which were nice! My favorite place was St Ives though. I just really enjoyed this sweet town.

We arrived early, very wet and tired after an overnight train and a rainy start to the day. However we were met with kindness and a warm cup of tea. This sense of warmth continued throughout our stay and we could not have asked for more.

Tips:

Be prepared for a bit of a climb if you arrive by train, but you soon get use to it once you have been to town a couple of times. Most things only a 5 or 10 minute walk from the B&B.

Tips:

The B&B is just above the city centre - in a calm surrounding - and with the childhood home of Virginia Wolf just around the corner in Talland Road. Railway station is also easy to find, just below the hill. We highly recommend the foot paths along the shore - in direction to Zanner.

This is probably the best Bed & Breakfast in St Ives. Julie and Justin gave us a warm welcome and a great cup of tea on arrival. George the dog brought a favourite toy! They have clearly spent a lot of thought and time in furnishing and equipping their property. Our bedroom was clean and comfortable with everything you could wish for to make our stay pleasant. The bathroom was spotless and we'll appointed. There was even a demisting mirror. Breakfast was excellent, cooked to order by Julie whose homemade vegetarian sausages were historic! We stayed two nights over a wedding anniversary and could not have been better pleased a with our choice of accommodation. The Olive Branch is convenient for the station, town and beaches, in fact all of St Ives' attractions. Highly recommended.

Home made fruit compote & generous fruit salad . Map of St Ives provided which helpful.

Tips:

Bus opposite Coop takes you to Leach pottery & shop. Tate gallery a must . Recommend Porthminster beach if want seaside which is downhill from Olive Branch. Has shops for ice cream, snacks & a bar. You can rent kayak or surfboard. Childrens play area . When tide is out you can walk along all beaches. We liked Seafood cafe Fore street but need to book. Loft disappointing.

Tips:

The best food we had all week was at the Pedn Olva Hotel, which is quite close to the Olive Branch. The food was great and there are lovely views over Porthminster Beach. Also, if you want to try a different beach, there is a fairly short (about half an hour) but lovely walk to the next beach at Carbis Bay.

The Olive Branch is the perfect place to stay in St Ives, a short stroll into town and with the added bonus of parking makes it ideal! Room 3 is lovely with a beautiful sea view. All rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfast is so delicious. The hosts are so friendly and warm, always so welcoming and lovely to stay with. We visit St Ives every year and have stayed at The Olive Tree two years in a row with next year already booked, it’s perfect for us!

Tips:

Favourite restaurants are Caffe Pasta, Beer & Bird, Sea Food Cafe and Beach restaurant. Love the Beach bar for a chocolate cocktail and Balcony bar has a good choice of cocktails too! Beer & Bird have the best range of ales - and their food is delicious if you love burgers, nachos and everything topped with melted cheese!! Places to visit - depends on the length of your stay - if you’re only staying for a weekend you’ll have plenty to do in St Ives. If you’re staying for a week, I’d recommend visiting Padstow, Watergate Bay, Sennen Cove, Minack Theatre, Porth Levan, St Michaels Mount...the list goes on but they are our favourites.

I had a wonderful stay here. The owners were so welcoming and friendly and gave me tips on where to visit etc. The room itself was lovely and clean with everything I wanted and a fantastic sea view! I found this to be in the perfect location as it is situated just out of the main town away from the hustle and bustle, yet a 5-10 minute walk away down to the town and closer still to the beautiful beach. An added bonus was the available parking at the property. Thank you for a lovely stay - I will definitely be back!

A lovely welcome on arrival and a much needed cup of tea and chocolate bar, are amongst the many little things that make this a lovely place to stay. Gorgeous breakfast, with plenty to choose from and served piping hot. Would definitely recommend this B & B , a great combination of being looked after whilst still doing what you want to do.

Our room was immaculately clean and the facilities were great. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice. It was also a chance to stroke George’s their gorgeous dog! Our hosts could not be more helpful with their local knowledge of what there was to see and do as well as were the best pubs were! I could not rate The Olive Branch high enough, fantastic location, lovely hosts and an overall great mini break away. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Thank you.

Tips:

Just wander! The winding streets and cottages are very pretty and the views are stunning. The Rum and Crab Shack has really great food and good cocktails. The mulled cider at The Sloop Inn was delicious!

Friendly and homely B&B. Ours was nice ensuite room with the sea and St Ives 'island' visible over the rooftops. Impressive TV! The only negatives (both minor) were the heavy duvet (we used the bedspread instead, which was fine), and the somewhat cramped breakfast area. But neither of these issues are too significant and certainly wouldn't deter us from further visits.

Tips:

We like the Porthminster Kitchen (though not much vegetarian choice) with views over the harbour. Also, although a 'chain', Pizza Express has always been reliable (although do not take bookings so there could be a queue at busy times)

Short walk to the rail branch line from St Ives to St Erth,well worth the train ride for the views of the coast along the way. Try the Ped N Olva for bar food, lovely views of the beach at sunset - good food.

Everything was very good quality, Justin and Julie were very friendly and informative about St Ives and the area. And George the laid back dog was a bonus, such a cutie! The breakfasts were amazing, everything top notch, good choice and high quality ingredients. The room had everything you'd need and the bathroom was immaculate with a good pressure shower.

Tips:

Every meal we had was excellent - we ate at The Sloop, Pedn Olva hotel, Golden Lion, Indian restaurant, and the Lifeboat Inn. We found the staff everywhere we went were very friendly and helpful. Lots of lovely fresh fish dishes on the menus!

Wonderful hosts, fabulous breakfasts, and perfect for us. Such a warm welcome and we were made to feel very much at home. And thank you for recommending A-1 Cars - Aaron was terrific to deal with. Only one thing - the bed closest to the window in Room 2 is rather lumpy and (I just found out) made for uncomfortable sleeping for my sister.

Tips:

The busses are pretty easy for sightseeing tho one must pay close attention to the schedules and routes, and plan carefully. Do not miss St. Michael's Mount. Porthminster Beach Cafe is excellent food, right on the beach, with wonderful staff. Union House has the best mussels. Olive Branch has a great location for walking to so many things.

Julie,Justin and George (the dog) treat each and every guest as a friend from first introduction and nothing is too much trouble for them to make you welcome. Bedroom warm, welcoming,spotless,serviced daily Tv,hairdryer,fridge,tea/coffee making, comfotable bed with choice of bedding. Efficient ensuite shower etc.all in immaculate white (It seemed a shame to use them). Variety of freshly cooked breakfasts served with a smile. All this for a modest charge, thank you both, hope to see you again.

What a lovely B and B. Excellent balance of just the right things coupled with not being over burdened with rules and regulations. I felt very welcomed from the beginning of my stay to the end. My room was just right, enough facilities, gleaming bathroom and very comfy bed. Lots of choices for breakfast ( hearty!) and the little touches such as gluten free snack bars in my room for supper which I hadn't asked for but magically appeared. Plenty of milk and tea bags for cuppas in my room, there is nothing more annoying than having to eke out hot drink supplies. A lovely friendly couple and not forgetting gorgeous George the dog.

Tips:

I stayed as I was on a painting course but other guests were given tips about interesting places to see and good pubs/ places to eat. I had the heads up about a gluten free pasty supplier. You can't go to Cornwall and not have a Cornish Pasty!

Julie & Justin, not forgetting George (so sweet!), have to be the most friendly B & B hosts ever. Nothing was too much trouble...daily weather forecast from Justin at breakfast time was much appreciated, even had a UV indicator! Julie's full English breakfasts were fab, always piping hot and very tasty! Would highly recommend.

Tips:

Fab location, only a short walk to town which has a comprehensive range of eating places...something to suit everyone. Both Porthminster and Porthmeor beach cafes very good. Minack theatre at Porthcurno is something that should be on everyone's to-do list, absolutely stunning setting.

Lovely warm and friendly welcome by Justin and Julie, great location just a short stroll into town. We stayed in room 2, lovely and clean and nice sea view! Breakfast was delicious and they catered for any taste. Would highly recommend this B&B, and we loved it so much we have booked for next year!

Tips:

Highly recommend Hidden Kitchen, Back Street Bistro, Beach Restaurant, Sea Food cafe for delicious food! Favourite bars are Rum & Crab shack and Balcony bar. For a fun activity try Koru Kayaking on Helford River near Falmouth.

Just returned from a fantastic long weekend in St Ives for my birthday. From the moment we arrived, Justin, Julie and George gave us a very warm welcome. We stayed in Room 1, which was warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast choice was excellent and delicious too (the sausages were scrumptious!) - it was plainly evident that nothing was too much trouble as pretty much everyone ordered variations of the choices on the menu. This was our second stay at The Olive Branch and it has to be said (in our opinion) that Julie, Justin and George made our stay a much more enjoyable experience than the previous owners. We know now that we will always go back to stay at The Olive Branch because it was simply perfect. Coincidentally, Justin and I shared the same birthday and I was delighted to receive a birthday card from our hosts - a very nice touch I thought. Just book and experience great hospitality yourselves.

Tips:

We had an excellent meal at The Firehouse,so we would highly recommend anyone to go there.
