St Ives guest house, West by Five provides bed and breakfast accommodation in a stunning Edwardian townhouse, which is perfectly situated overlooking the ocean across Porthmeor Beach and is just a few minutes from the Tate Gallery and the famous winding streets of the town centre.
West by Five is the longitude coordindate for St Ives, actually it is 5° 3’W and 50° 32’ N but that is just the geographical position. However if the question is what is West by Five, then the answer is a memorable experience in a beautiful setting.
Our intention has been to create a guest house where we would like to stay – a place that is not only considered for the quality of its surroundings, service and food but one that has a personality and identity. For us West by Five is a feeling and we have looked to portray that feeling in the contemporary style that we have used to refurbish the house.
When we decided to open a guest house, St Ives was really the only place we considered. We realized that no matter where we had travelled in the world, St Ives was the place to which we returned time and time again. We love St Ives for its beauty and its atmosphere and truly hope that you will too.
We have four individually designed en-suite guestrooms. The lounge is a beautiful high ceiling room with a stunning ocean view from the large bay window and offers you a space to relax whilst browsing the books, maps, DVD library and local information. St Ives has an abundance of excellent restaurants and we would be delighted to recommend some of our favourites. After 7.00pm the lounge is reserved for our private use.
If you wish to make your visit extra special we would be pleased to arrange extras as you require; chilled Champagne, Chocolates, Flowers – just let us know.
