눉It is advisable to inquire about the parking infront of the house before your stay. Do not make the mistake that we did and expect a parking space, there is only one and it might not be available. It will save you the hassle of going through very narrow and slopy streets for nothing. St Ives is a parking nightmare, during high season there is basically no space available in the surrounding car parks. We parked at the Rugby Club which is a steep and long walk up from Barnoon Hill. It is cheaper than parking lots closer by, costs 5 pounds a day, and there are busses going every 10 mins to various destinations in the city (for 1 pound per person, 50p kids). The walk up to the Guest House from the beach / promenade is also very steep, take your time if you're not an athlete...
눇The wonderful owner clearly didn't expect us to come with a kid (Booking.com mistake?), yet she was pleasantly surprised and made absolutely no problem out of it. Our daughter got her own little bedroom with a spectacular view over the harbour without an extra charge. Our bedroom was to the side which was a bit of a let down to start with, you could enjoy the view when you stuck your head out of the window though, and since we were out and about during the day anyway, it was no problem at all. (Plus we could sneak into our daughter's bedroom at night and enjoy the view from there.) The room was very clean and tastefully furnished, everything you need was supplied. I can not mention enough how wonderful Pat, the owner, is! She is very child friendly, she makes the most delicous breakfast in a beautiful lounge room, and during our 4 day stay, she gave us numerous tips where to go which all proved absolutely spot on! Palma Guest House is perfect if you consider visiting St Ives, it's central and very close to the busy little streets with many many restaurants and pubs, to the promenade and the beaches. We would love to come again one day, thank you very much for everything!
