Fantastic B&B in great location with added big bonus of free off street parking - a big plus in St Ives . Great hosts who go extra mile to ensure an enjoyable stay inc daily varying breakfast specials - don't miss the home-made chorizo hash or the blueberry pancakes if you get the chance, plus freshly made cake in the afternoon when you get back. Rooms are immaculate with great shower facilities,a very comfy bed and ours even had a small terrace with views across the roofs to the sea - ideal to enjoy an early evening G&T (and Simon & Lindsay will happily supply you with the ice!) All in all a great place for a stay in St Ives

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and Simon and Lindsey made us very welcome. Our room was spacious and comfortable and we had everything we needed. Breakfasts were delicious, with a varied choice each day. Being able to park at the B&B was a real benefit and its proximity to the town made it easy to go out in St Ives.

Tips:

Lots of good eating places in St Ives. We particularly enjoyed The Seafood Cafe and, for a special meal out, we can recommend Black Rock. Regarding places to visit, St Michael's Mount and The Menack Theatre are both really interesting.

The breakfast was very good with a wide choice from fresh fruit and berries to cereals, toast and full english. There was also a special on offer everyday. Simon was a great host, very pleasent and obliging. will definitely be returning.

Tips:

Great location. walking distance into town. We ate at the Beach restaurant, and had fantastic fish and chips. The next evening we had a curry in the curry garden on Simon's reccommendation, and it was one of the best curry's we have had. All in all a great break, in a great b and b with a great location, with great food. GREAT! x

Tips:

We were interested in the early stone circles and sites of which there are plenty. The skyline is dotted with iconic tin mines and a visit to the Levant tin mine is a must. The coastline is dotted with attractive fishing villages which are well worth a visit.

We have just got back from a fabulous four day break staying in Blue Sky - what a great place to stay, being looked after so well by Simon and Lindsey. Very friendly, comfortable, helpful and delicious breakfasts, especially the daily special. Something different every day and always tasty. When we arrived, we were shown to our room - Godolphin (spacious and clean with a balcony and view of the sea) and then welcomed downstairs with coffee and a chat about local eateries and tips on getting around. Also helpful tips on places we had in mind to visit during our stay. We appreciated all the little extra touches which show care and show a genuine interest in wanting guests to really enjoy their stay. For example, we visited the Minack Theatre for a performance (highly recommended) and Simon kindly leant us cushion seats so we were comfy during the play. Blue Sky has it`s own parking spaces, which I believe can be difficult in St Ives, and is literally a five minute walk to Porthminster beach and into the town. So once you`ve parked up - you can get around easily without moving the car again. The railway station is a five minute walk too. We can well understand why people make many return visits to Blue Sky - we will certainly be returning ourselves and know that we will be greeted with a warm welcome and enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Tips:

Highly recommend Olives Cafe - Island Square, St Ives Also liked the Sea Food Cafe on Fore Street and Harbour Restaurant for fish and chips - The Wharf. Minack Theatre

What a wonderful place to stay! The room we had wasn't huge but it was private, clean, comfortable and had everything we could need. This was our first experience of St Ives (and a B&B) and the Blue Sky was perfect. Located a stones throw from the Harbour side we were close enough to be able to walk to the many bars and restaurants but far away enough to not be affected by any noise. Simon and Lyndsey were wonderful hosts, ready to answer any questions we had or advise us of the best places to go to. Also with breakfast included in the price (and consisting of not just your standard full English but 'daily specials' such as blueberry pancakes, eggs benedict, etc.) it made the B&B really good value for money. Our experience at the Blue Sky was better than many hotels we've stayed in and we would definitely recommend it to others.

Tips:

St Ives is beautiful and filled with wonderful places to eat and relax. We particularly enjoyed The Lifeboat Inn (I would highly recommend the Ploughman's Sharing Board), The Rum and Crab, and The Hub Box which are all located on the Harbour Side. There is also The Sloop Inn for a pint of Cornish Rattler (lethal stuff!) or the Upper Deck if you prefer a quiet glass of wine. We ventured down to Lands End on our one day where we had nothing planned, which was lovely to see and wasn't too far away by car.

We have just returned from a weekend break in St Ives where we stayed at Blue Sky B&B for 2 nights. We had a wonderful weekend and we would not hesitate to recommend Blue Sky B&B to others for the following reasons: Simon & Lindsey are the perfect hosts, very welcoming, friendly and they were attentive to our needs at all times. The accommodation is of a very high standard indeed: well equipped, spacious, charming interior, warm, comfortable & cosy. Superb location providing a great view across the bay from our room. It was only a very short walk from the heart of St Ives, meaning we did not have to use the car once. It is situated in a very quiet and peaceful residential area with no through traffic. Having an on site car parking space was very handy, no doubt these are quite rare in St. Ives! First class breakfast - all the options you could wish for: fresh fruit / nuts / seeds, cereals, yoghurts, toast, a daily special and of course my own personal favourite full english cooked breakfast, all using top quality ingredients. We had all of the above for a discounted room rate which provided superb value for money. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you again Simon & Lindsey for welcoming us to your wonderful B&B. We hope to return again someday!

Tips:

Would recommend Harbour View Fish & Chips near the life boat station / jetty which turned traditional fish and chips into a wonderful gourmet experience. Also, you just cannot beat The Sloop - a traditional pub (a dying breed these days!) with tonnes of atmosphere and live music on both Friday & Saturday night, we had the ultimate surf and turf which was simply amazing!

Everything was excellent, you went the extra mile with everything from breakfast which were exceptionally good - especially the daily specials, very nice touch. Your helpfulness with suggestions of places to visit etc. Can't praise Blue Sky highly enough if was marking out of 10 you would certainly get an 11 from us. Look forward to seeing you both again in the not to distant future.

Tips:

Would recommend the Queens Hotel to eat in, food slightly different to your usual "Pub Grub". Also beware of eating ice creams on the harbour, don't know how many people we saw "dive bombed" from behind by the seagulls, they have it down to a fine art !! St. Ives just a lovely part of the world - get the train to Penzance and walk (3 miles) to St. Michaels Mount and the walk along the costal path from St. Ives to Carbis Bay is lovely. Drive to Sennen and do a short walk on the coastal path to Lands End. If you don't like walking just visit all these lovely places by car.

Keith and I arrived on Sunday last week to a wonderful welcome from Lindsey and her and Simon's beautiful house. We were shown to our room - the Godolphin Room - which was really lovely with a balcony where we could sit and see the rooftops of St Ives! We were offered a delicious breakfast with a daily special which were absolutely yummy! Lindsey even baked cake and left this for us upon our return from a day out! Wonderful stay!!!

Tips:

St Ives is a wonderful seaside town with an array of superb restaurants and eateries and local pubs serving very good food. We would recommend the Rum and Crab for a great atmosphere and really great food. Their rum based cocktails and digestives were really good too!! There are wonderful coastal walks for all with beautiful views across the bay. Well worth a visit!!!

We were four ladies who stayed four days with Lindsey and Simon and it was simply wonderful! Welcoming, relaxed, lots of help and advice if we asked about something. Beautiful, restful rooms. Lindsey and Simon are such nice people and have created a calm, restful place for guests to stay. We really felt it as a home away from home. We do think that they (Lindsey?) have an eye for details - like the binoculars by the chair at the window. And the breakfast - that so scrumptious! Having Simon coming up to the table saying´and today´s special is...´ we loved it!

Tips:

Book in time at Blue Sky B&B! There are just a few rooms and with Simon and Lindsey as hosts they are bound to be booked in advance. Staying in S:t Ives means you have a variety of options for outings, walks, restaurants, shopping (S:t Ives is delightful that way!) You walk down to Market Place in 5-7 minutes, and by car you go swiftly out off to the main road. We saw Minnack Theatre, Penzance and Michael Mount, Moushole, Cape Cornwall.... all lovely places. Wonderful views and walks that are easy to access. In S:t Ives we had the best coffee in Coffee Lounge, best crab sandwich at Pel´s, Jambalaya at Rum´n Crab, more seafood at Beach Bar and everywhere we had great food served by really nice staff. We bought hot take-away pasty at Cornish Pasty Shop - pasty it´s a must in Cornwall. And if there are any questions about S:t Ives and Cornwall - talk to Lindsey and Simon. They are the best. Oh, and don´t miss Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, she´s an iconic modernistic artist!

Warm welcome with flexible checking in time really helped. Godolphin room was excellent, and small balcony a real asset. Comfort of the room especially the bed made our stay very relaxing. After a good nights sleep followed by a wonderful hot shower in the spacious bathroom, we looked forward to our breakfast which by far exceeded our expectations. Helpful, friendly hosts with a good knowledge of things to do and places to visit. Thank you we shall no doubt be back.

The location is as good as one can hope for in St Ives, with its off-street parking and its being accessible without getting involved in the one way streets and yet being within walking distance of the centre of town. We liked our room, also the welcome and the excellent breakfasts.

The location was perfect - parking out front and just a short 5 minute stroll downhill into town. Simon and Lindsey were perfect hosts - very welcoming and eager to provide any help or assistance. The breakfast is probably one of the best spreads you'll ever have at a B&B!

I booked Blue Sky based on other reviews (all excellent) and they weren't wrong! Simon and Lindsey are a fabulous couple, it felt as though we were staying with friends and yet they weren't intrusive. Our room was spotlessly clean and the beds sooo comfy. Delicious breakfasts too, all cooked to order. Honestly can't find a fault and will definitely return if we are in the area.

Tips:

A friend recommended that we visited Trevaskis Farm for a meal and we pass on that recommendation- wonderful food with very generous portions. About a 20 mins drive from Blue Sky.

Simon & Lindsey are so friendly & welcoming, we stayed an extra unplanned day. They are more than happy to share their local knowledge of places to visit & eat etc. Our room, Trencrom, at the front of the B&B had an amazing sea view from the seating area in the bay window. The choice of breakfast were amazing with a "special" available every day. Look forward to returning again soon.

Simon and Lindsey were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. We felt very comfortable with coming and going as we pleased. Blue Sky is a very quiet and relaxing place to stay. We both really enjoyed our stay and would definitely be happy to return.

Tips:

Plenty of good restaurants in town with a good variety of fish and shellfish choices and wines e.g. Seafood Café, Seagrass Restaurant. St Ives also has a number of good cafes and bakeries to choose from. We walked the coast path to Lelant Saltings and Birdie's Bistro on a really lovely sunny winter afternoon and caught the train back, beautiful scenery. Next day we walked toward Zennor to Pen Enys. In the past, we've walked the stunning Penwith section of the coast path from Mousehole to St Ives over 3 days which is magnificent scenery and well worth doing.
