Me and my girlfriend stayed in a fantastic double room with a luxurious en-suite. Views over the beach and sea were fantastic as the house is situated atop a hill. Breakfast was excellent quality and served by the very friendly Neil and Sheila. They also had good recommendations for places to visit and eat in the town. The whole area is very walkable and the B&B is only a few minutes from the beach. All in all a very relaxing getaway for us both - thanks Neil and Sheila!

The last time we stayed here was three years ago when we had ‘eloped’ to get married in St Ives. Back then Sheila and Neil were superb hosts and they along with the glory that is West by Five made a huge contribution to the day being one of the happiest of our lives. This was our first chance to celebrate an anniversary staying with them again and it didn’t disappoint. The location is outstanding. Neil and Sheila are wonderful hosts managing to combine effortless, natural bon homie with an absolute attention to detail that makes West by Five a truly fabulous place to stay. The view from Room 1 is one you will never tire off and to wake up to it is a joy. Breakfasts are outstanding and are made with quality produce. Again the attention to detail pays off in spades from sourcing the best local ingredients to the home made granola. Home made biscuits and cookies are left in the bedroom every day and, as you would expect, are delicious. Neil and Sheila are a fount of knowledge for all things St Ives and the surrounding area from where to eat and drink (and where not to) to suggesting walks and places to visit Great location, great house and hosts that can’t be bettered. Can’t wait to go back for our next anniversary celebrations.

Amazing small family/couples hotel. Breakfasts were amazing. Rooms outstanding with front room views overlooking the sea. Cannot fault any aspect of this family run b&b. We would highly recommend a stay at the hotel and look forward to our next visit.

Fabulous!! Neil and Sheila are wonderful hosts, their five star rating is truly well deserved. They have a particular attention to detail that made our stay all the more delightful. Their home is bright, airy and super cosy, their hosting throughout our stay made us feel like friends not guests. The sea view from the living/dining room was an absolutely joyful way to start each day, following on from their fabulous breakfast (which catered for vegan requirements :)). The lovely bright and spacious bedroom had the most luxurious bed and pillows which made getting up a great effort. Our room had the added bonus of a terrace that had glorious potted plants dotted all around, with lovely furniture for us to be able to sit out and enjoy the late evening sun. The ensuite bathroom had a spacious layout and a great shower. Neil and Sheila were insightful hosts and gave us lots of information about the local attractions and sights, and also had interesting facts about the local area which added interest to our already planned itinerary. Last and most definitely not least were the fabulous home made cookies that were left in our room each day, a different yummy type that were an absolute unexpected treat, that we looked forward to each time. We are so looking forward to our next visit and cannot recommend West By Five highly enough. Fabulous!
