Tips:

About 30 minute walk into St Ives.....road route a bit easier then coastal route. Coastal route should be walked at least once through. Pedn Olva Hotel has brilliant roof terrace for drinks....stunning views! Peppers restaurant well worth a visit.

Excellent breakfast selection where Linda and John couldn’t do enough for you. The room was clean and cosy with a nice view of the ocean making this a very relaxed and laid back 4 nights break.

Tips:

Great walks along the coastal path to St Ives from Thurelstone guest house or from Carbis bay beach but be aware it is very hilly. Quite pleased with the restaurant food as a whole, the only restaurant that did disappoint us was La Casita where we ordered Tapas for two and found that the portions,which were expensive,would have been suffice for one,maybe we just ordered the wrong dish.

I stay away with with work 70+ nights a year and the Thurlestone is the best B+B I've found. Linda and John are the friendliest most welcoming people you can ask for with great knowledge of the places to visit whilst in Cornwall, rooms are spotless and cleaned everyday. Most important though it's worth staying here for the breakfast's 10/10 :-)

Tips:

The perfect place to stay when visiting Cornwall, Carbis Bay ideal location with a beautiful beach, only 20 - 30min walk into St Ives with bus and trains on the door step. The Gannet Inn, Atlantic Bay and our favorite the La Casita (recommend the Moroccan Chicken Skewers)all within walking distance

Easily one of the best places I've stayed; the guest house is easy to find and only 10-15 mins walk from the beach, our room was clean, bright and tidy and had lots of lovely little touches, right down to the high quality confectionery and toiletries. The rest of the building is nicely decorated and has an open, homely aesthetic and John and Linda are absolutely brilliant. Both are friendly, warm and welcoming and go above and beyond. John has excellent knowledge of the area, he recommended places he thought we'd like to visit and helped us plan our routes, and even drove us to the train station the day we left to save us walking. Linda made sure we were looked after, she helped with our luggage and made drinks as soon as we arrived, cooked a lovely breakfast every morning and even gave us sun cream when she knew we were going coastal walking. I would highly recommend staying here and John and Linda are the best hosts you could ever wish for.

Tips:

Becks restaurant is a must if staying here, it is a 10 min walk along the main road and serves amazing fish and chips and other seafood, The Gannet also serves lovely food if you're looking for a high-brow meal. It is definitely worth taking the public footpath through the woods to the beach, it is beautiful, I would also highly recommend the coastal path to Lelant and the walk into St. Ives town via Tregenna Castle.

They gave us a lot of tips for things to do in the area and were always friendly and accommodating. The room was small, but everything was there what you need. The cleanliness was excellent and the location of the house is very central so you can explore the beaches and the surrounding area on foot. We would go back anytime.

John and Linda were thoughtful and generous hosts for my stay of three nights.

Tips:

Southwest Path hikers will find this the perfect place to stay. The hotel sits above a breakpoint in the trail for easy access and has a handy GWR train station in between the two access paths. The major on/off buses can take you east or west from almost in front of the hotel. The owners will find the answer for dietary needs if they know ahead of time. the hotel sits between several excellent restaurants, one veg, one pub, two wine and fine, and a fish and chips place. The Cornish Arms catch of the day (sea bass, the day I went) was excellent and the staff very welcoming. The Gannet, almost next door, took me in all jet lagged near the end of serving and made me a very nice starter of crab and shellfish cakes. The next night they slipped me into a table during a very crowded service and I got a delicious malbec along with a delicious meal. Very pleasant stay. In season St Ives is a crush of people and Carbis Bay less so. One note of caution if you are hoping the A4 bus will take you to Hell's Mouth, it will only pick you up at certain stops, but you can take to T2 or the A14 from near the hotel to a pickup point, ask the driver.

Tips:

Bus stops are right outside that takes you either into St Ives or going the other way to Penzance and other places of interest such as Truro We bought weekly tickets for £26 each which was fantastic value for money because we could hop on and off the buses anywhere in Cornwall and Kernow First Buses let you load an app on your phone to avoid losing tickets The Atlantic Coaster down to Lands End on the open top double decker was a memorable journey St Michael's mount is a must for any sightseer and well worth the climb the castle itself amazing and the views stunning On our relaxing days we strolled down to Carbis Bay beach which was a lovely beach

This is the second time that we have stayed here and received a very warm welcome from John & Linda. The rooms are very clean & comfy with all that you would require for your stay. The choice of breakfasts is impressive & really sets you up for day to do whatever you want to do

Tips:

In the room is a folder that gives you a good selection of restaurants locally. If you are exploring the area on foot or car you will always find somewhere to eat & the majority source their ingredients locally. As National Trust & English Heritage members there is lots of places to visit in a relatively short distance. If you like beaches you don't have to go far, Carbis Bay & St. Ives where you have a choice of three plus the harbour. Whether you just like to lounge on the beach, relax in the many gardens or walking you will not be disappointed here.

John and Linda are the perfect hosts, friendly, accommodating and full of fun. They were very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and local restaurants. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and fresh. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay with them.

Tips:

There are a variety of restaurants in the area catering for all needs. Carbis Bay has a beautiful beach and some lovely coastal walks.

Very enjoyable stay with John and Linda. The room was spotless and the breakfast was fabulous, with choices of just about anything we wanted. The hosts are lovely and full of local information.

Tips:

A mile walk or bus/taxi into St Ives. Plenty of restaurants/pubs locally or in St Ives itself, and the walk back after a heavy meal was very welcome. Lovely beaches around and plenty of places to visit by car. Loved the area.

John amd Linda were most welcoming and explained the location and how to get to places on arrival. It was my birthday weekend and John recommended that we book some restaurants as soon as possible so we did for the 3 nights...and very glad too! There is parking right outside the guest house and a bus stop just up the road so very easy to get into St Ives. Our room was lovely....spotlessly clean and the bed was super comfy. Tea/coffee etc facilities in the room. Linda's breakfast was super. We read the marvellous reviews on Trip Advisor and that is what clinched the deal for us! Good choice of freshly cooked to order produce. Eggs Benedict, Eggs Royale, Traditional full cooked, eggs any way you prefer with bacon... Eggs cooked just how we like them and the best bacon we have ever experienced away from home!! And we finished that with the fresh fruit salad every morning. Packed with excellent choice of freshly prepared fruit (not the horrible tinned variety some establishments offer) Tea/Coffee/Toast topped up if required. Really enjoyed our stay in their house and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting this part of Cornwall.

Tips:

We ate in Las Casita first night as just an easy walk from the guest house. Good food. Also ate in The Loft (not a huge menu but food was excellent (recommend the Cornish Chowder) Last night was spent in the Mermaid, popular with locals and it was packed out. Don't often eat desserts but the Mermaid Mess (Eton mess) was the best we have ever had!! Didn't think we would finish it (but would be rude not to)!!! Travel wise...St Michael's Mount was an excellent day out.and just a 20 minute drive away. Whilst there a guide said we should visit Tremenhere Sculpture Gardens which we went back to the next day. Lovely walk through the grounds and a few surprises to see. Spectacular views across to St Michael's Mount. Also drove to Godrevy Lighthouse and walked along the headland and saw the seals smimmimg in the cove. The coastal walk into St Ives can be reached form opposite the guest house. It is very steep in parts so may not suit anyone with walking difficulties but there are alternative accesses to pick up further along which is less taxing. We enjoyed our walk along and the views of the harbour are so picturesque as you approach the town. This is a beautiful part of Cornwall and it was lovely to revisit after so many years away.

Very welcoming and helpful and friendly managers who make you feel right at home. We were given maps and advice on eating spots etc when we arrived. Parking out the front. Not the largest of twin bedroom and small shower but perfectly adequate, very clean and looks recently done up. Good range of amenities in bathroom.Lovely quilts and covers on bed. Heater and hairdryer in room. Really good breakfasts. Best bacon ever!!

Tips:

John gave us great tips on restaurants. If you get takeaway fish and chips from Becks, ask for a SMALL piece!! We enjoyed doing the coast walk from Carbis Bay to St Ives which we probably wouldn't have done had we stayed in St Ives. It was a very handy location for exploring this corner of Cornwall and we wished we had more time there. We'd definitely return and would highly recommend it if you don't need to stay in town.

Very friendly and well informed hosts who made me feel welcome and were more than happy to share their local knowledge with me. My breakfast on both days was outstanding, a truly 'fresh' fruit salad and Eggs Royale by the way. The poached eggs were cooked perfectly, not easy to consistently achieve, and even my request for my smoked salmon to be slightly cooked was happily met with. A spotless bedroom and en suite with a very comfortable bed - which had been sanitised for cleanliness and allergy reduction. I have a number of allergies and this was terrific to see. I will most certainly be returning in the very near future.

Tips:

The Gannet just down the road is a lovely welcoming hotel bar/restaurant. But also St Ives is so very close with all the restaurants and bars on offer there. My favourites are the Hub, the Seafood Cafe and my brand new find the Pedn Olva - just down the steps from the bus station and train station - it could not be easier to get to and the views and food (try the scallops starter!) are SO worth the short journey to get there.

Very friendly. I appreciated the local advice when I first arrived and that John subsequently always knew my name. The breakfast was splendid and I also liked having coffee, including decaf in the room. Provision of a wine glass also helpful! Wifi was fast and reliable. Parking was snug but possible. Pretty easy walk to town and less stressful than trying to park in St Ives. Good rack of information leaflets and map provided on arrival. The only improvement I could envisage would be a sitting room of some sort. The rooms are quite small, though well appointed and it might have been nice to sit elsewhere for a drink in the evening.

Tips:

Enjoyed the fish and chips at Becks as it could be with salad and didn't have to have batter! It is a very short and easy trip to Marazion / St Michael's Mount. It's only about 9 miles/ 15 minutes. As it's north coast, that's probably worth pointing out. Nice walk round the island bit behind St Ives.

Very handy for frequent buses into St Ives for those who don't want the fantastic coastal walk down the hill.

What a fabulous few days. John and Linda were there to greet us at check in with hand shakes and hugs. Very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the local area. John recommended some superb places to eat and visit during our stay. The room was tidy, clean and a good size. The breakfasts were top notch and there was plenty of choice. My fiancee and I chose off the menu each day but other guests had unique requests, which were catered to without fuss. By the second morning John had learnt our names and also knew our hot drink preferences which was a really nice touch! Wifi access was available, it was a little intermittent, however as we were there to relax and spent our days out this was no issue for us. The B&B is just a short walk down the hill to the beach and our room had a lovely sea view. Check out was smooth, with a repeat of handshakes and hugs to bid us fair well. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Thurlestone House and would be happy to return.

Tips:

We ate close to the B&B each night, the Gannet hotel just up the road was amazing, so so much so that we ate there twice. La Cassita, a small Spanish restaurant, which was also up the road, was really lovely as well. Would highly recommend both of these places to eat. The B&B is well situated to access most off what the southern most parts of Cornwall have to offer. Half an hour drive in either direction provides access to a massive range of amusements, attractions and places to see. the South West Coastal Path is also right on the door step.

This B and B is actually above Carbis Bay Beach and is only 6 mins by plentiful buses to St.Ives. If you are looking to park up and not use the car then this place is ideal as lovely bars and restaurants are only a short walk away.

Tips:

La casita, restaurant a short walk from thurlestone. Friendly service. Nice atmosphere. Lots to see and do in st Ives including a cinema for wet days. Recommend the guided walk from the guildhall. Carbis bay, short walk away, gorgeous. Porth kidney sands, bit further on, to escape the crowds. Godrevy short drive away, for stunning coastal scenery and seals.

Lovely B and B, John and Linda are a brilliant couple and would definitely stay there again.

Tips:

Walk the coastal path which is a nice walk. Few hills but worth it as when I did it on the last day we saw dolphins and seals. Brilliant day. Make your way to st Ives and there are plenty of pubs and restaurants and shops which fit everyone's needs and price range.

Thurslestone is a lovely guest house made even better by John and Linda who are the friendliest hosts that you would ever want to meet. Their high standards, attention to detail and willingness to help in any way made our stay with them an excellent experience. Breakfasts were superb and the standards of cleanliness were impressive. We will certainly come back for another stay.

Tips:

An excellent restaurant in St. Ives is on Porthmeor beach overlooking the sea. Porthleven and Marazion are well worth a visit as are St.Ives and Padstow. The Godolphin bar and restaurant in Marazion is a lovely place to eat overlooking St.Michael's Mount. Minack Theatre in Porthcurno is even more impressive when a production is on.

Myself and my partner stayed at the Thurlestone for 2 nights and we would highly recommend. John and Linda are very welcoming and give you some good tips if you have never been to St Ives and a map to help you navigate. Lovely breakfast, nothing is too much trouble. The costal walk into St Ives is a must and the path is directly across the road from the hotel. We will definitely be going back. Sara & Steve

Tips:

There are also a few places very close to the hotel if you didn't want to go into st Ives, we liked the local The Cornish Arms, great atmosphere proper local pub, lovely home cooked food.

We had 4 days in Cornwall and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The room & bathroom was also cleaned every day. Huge choice for breakfast and fantastic food. We are very glad we chose to stay here and would definitely recommend it.

Tips:

It is about a 1.5 mile walk into St Ives. It is quite a steep hill down to Carbis Bay beach, about a 10 min walk. Carbis Bay beach is beautiful with lovely cafe and restaurant and water sports place. Also very clean toilets! Great Spanish restaurant about 5-10 min walk from Thurlestone "La Casita". "Harbour Fish & Chips" on the front in St Ives - best fish and chips ever. You can chose to have the fish battered or grilled.

A very good restaurant in nearby St Ives is the Beach Restaurant if you like fish or steaks that is the place to go for a evening drink the Gannet Hotel is only about 5 mins away Tribute ale and fine wines being the order of the day besides St Ives Godrevy Point is well worth a visit (NationalTrust ) to see the lighthouse plus the seals in the bay

Very very welcoming owners. The room was very clean and very warm! Breakfast was superb! this is a brilliant stay for short stays or if you love the comfort of a b&b.

Tips:

Bus stop is right outside the b&b making it extremely easy to travel around. There is a short walk to a train station but we didn't use the train. It's £5 in the taxi to St Ives town aswell if you prefer taxi. The location is fab, just keep in mind that a sea view is at the front of the b&b so if you are a light sleeper, it might not suit facing the main road if you like your windows open in the night. We are heavy sleepers so we had no issues with noise. The owners text me the day before to confirm check in time and they allowed us to check in early so we could shower after a long drive. They do go that extra mile and are very friendly and approachable. Would stay again without hesitation! :)

We stayed for three nights to attend a wedding at Carbis Bay, the location was perfect for us and there was a bus stop just outside to catch the bus into St Ives. Mandy and Gary were absolutely fabulous hosts and were great with our little girl. The breakfasts were delicious and there was lots to choose from. We had a fabulous stay and can't wait to return next year. Thank you so much!

Tips:

Carbis Bay has the most amazing beach and is worth a visit, the road down is quite steep and parking is costly but worth it if your going to be there all day. Becks fish and chips restaurant just up the road was amazing the portions are huge and the food is delicious. We had to wait a little while for a table but you can have a drink in the bar area and it's definitely worth it. The staff are lovely. There are some lovely restaurants in St Ives, Onshore and pels of St Ives were just a couple that we visited and both did amazing food. Our little girl aged 2 and a half loved paradise park which is only a short drive away.

From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and relaxed and this continued through the time we stayed. Could not fault accommodation and breakfast was excellent. If you don't believe this go and stay there, you won't be disappointed .

Tips:

For meals Becks which is just down the road. The Badger Inn which is also on the St Ives Road. They also have entertainment there on occasions. The Atlantic also walking distance from the Thurlestone is nice for a drink and has big screen if any special sporting event on In St Ives we had a lovely meal in The Union Inn. A must to visit is St Michael's Mount and especially walk across sea path. There are many beautiful bays to go to

Tips:

St Ives:- Fab food at, Porthminster Cafe and Kitchen, Cellar Bistro, has to be our favourite, Alba is wonderful, and for a good Pizza, Onshore present a light and crispy one, which we really enjoyed. Carbis Bay:- Stunning beach, though some building works one end at present. The Carbis Bay Hotel offer some stunning food and excellent wine

Tips:

Short walk into St Ives, can also take the local bus or train. Lots of good restaurants to try, the Sloop and Harbour Fish and Chip restaurants are favourites and the Gannet just along from the Thurlestone is very good.

What a lovely welcome we received from Mandy and Gary. Fresh milk for a brew and lots of helpful tips about the area. Our room wasn't huge but had a sea view and was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was delicious, cooked to order and piping hot. A lovely place to stay and we will certainly be back if we are ever in the area again. Thank you.

Tips:

We walked the coastal path into St Ives, it's a bit overgrown at the moment but definitely worth doing. Took us about 40 minutes. We had a couple of meals in The Atlantic, about 3 minutes walk away. Very nice but may be changing hands soon.

Fantastic! From the moment we arrived Gary & Mandy made us feel VERY welcome! Having an assistance dog, we often feel barely tolerated, but they made our dog welcome- rescuing us when we'd left his bowls behind! He really enjoyed his daily sausage and affection which meant we could relax knowing he was welcome too. If we had to suggest something to improve our stay- hard as it was so brilliant- I would suggest maybe providing bath towels. For 1 or 2 nights a small towel is ok but for longer stays....they don't cover anything and a get very wet!!! (Smile)

Tips:

Why not leave the car and travel by bus? The 17A is often open top and the trip to Penzance takes you past St Michael's Mount via Marazion! We suggest you get another open top from there to Lands End wonderful journeys through obscure lanes, small villages, stone circles and more! We then got the 300 (sometimes a vintage bus) back to St Ives! An amazing trip and adventure! Even better, if you are over 60 or have a bus travel pass - its free!

Exceptional hospitality, the most welcoming and comfortable bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at. Breakfast was superb and the facilities were immaculate. We can definitely understand why anyone who regularly visits Cornwall would want to repeatedly return to stay at Thurlestone House. There is not enough words to describe how lovely our stay was. If we were to return to Cornwall we would without hesitation stay there again.

Tips:

This is a great location if travelling by car to visit various places in Cornwall. We stayed for 3 nights and it was an easy drive to Lands End, The Minak Theatre, Penzance and Newquay. People who enjoy walking can walk to St Ives Carbis Bay and into St Ives itself, alternatively if people struggle with hilly walks there is public transport available. Carbis Bay is a beautiful location and Mandy and Gary at Thurlestone House give great advice for travellers. No question is too much trouble. The local chip shop is reasonably priced and one of the best we've ever tasted.

A beautiful little gem in Cornwall. Mandy and Gary were most welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The detail in decor and ambiance was well thought out throughout the accommodation in all aspects. Cleanliness was 100% there was not a spec or mark to be seen. Breakfasts were superb, catering for the most discerning of us.

Tips:

If you are looking to walk the unspoilt walkways and villages around Cornwall, this is a gem of a location and accommodation. Easily accessible to St. Ives, and many other surrounding areas. Has some great little eateries nearby. Visited - the lost Gardens of Heligan St. Ives, Hayle, Truro, and Perrenporth.

Mandy and Gary made us feel at home from the time we walked through the door. We had such a warm welcome, nothing was any trouble, even when I asked if Mandy had some sun cream I could use until I bought my own later that day. The well decorated room was lovely and clean, with a good selection of tea/coffee/Hot Choc and water left for our use. The bed was very comfy. The bathroom had everything we needed, fresh towels and a selection of mini toiletries. The honesty bar had a great selection of drinks. It was a lovely place to meet other guest at the end of the day, or for a quick drink before setting out for the evening. It worked by making a note of what you had to drink on the bar sheet, the total was then added to your bill, very simple. I personally think it was much better than disturbing the owners every time you want a drink like in some other small guest houses I have stayed in. The breakfast was amazing, a good range of food on offer. It was cooked perfectly every morning and the service was excellent, far superior to the 5* hotel we stayed after leaving Thurlestone. Gluten free cereals and snack bars were available to all without having to ask. On our last night a family with a small child booked in. At breakfast the table was set ready with a sweet pink plastic plate, bowl and mug - what a lovely touch, the little girl was delighted when she arrived for breakfast, as I’m sure were her parents.

Tips:

The coastal walk into St Ives has spectacular views. Friday night at the "sloop" pub on the front was a night to remember. Bob Love, playing his guitar, as the whole pub, locals and visitors joined in with him singing. best night out for a very long time. Lots of great places to eat and drink on the front. But you much visit "I should coco", 39 Fore Street. The chocolate shop, smells amazing as soon as you walk in. You can watch the chocolates being made even if you don't buy any.

We would not hesitate to return to Thurlestone House and would highly recommend the Guest House to anyone. Thank you Mandy and Gary for a wonderful few days at your home.

An outstanding establishment run by outstanding people, Mandy and Gary. Excellent in every respect, from warm welcome to send-off at end of stay (two nights). Outstanding cleanliness, very comfortable room with plenty of storage space. Excellent breakfasts with everything freshly cooked. We had Room 3, extra wide super-king size bed. Recommended. Perfect - could not be faulted.

Tips:

Mandy suggested the Firehouse restaurant in St Ives, (it was my partner's birthday and a special meal was called for). Excellent meal, excellent staff, nice place with NO appalling music - no music at all. Not cheap but neither ridiculously expensive. If you want to see Land's End and the Longships lighthouse, don't waste money on ridiculous charges and spoilt venue at Land's end itself. Go to Sennen Cove and walk up to the old coastguard lookout. Plus a lovely beach.

Owners & Staff were extremely helpful going out of their way to ensure full satisfaction and if not applied instant remedies. Food, rooms and decor were all excellent. Location was very good for walking to St Ives or for the bus traveller there was a stop opposite Thurlestone Guest House, with information available from the premises & owners. All encounters with the owners were a cheerful experience who went out of their way to ensure that your stay was enjoyable and satisfying. We would have no hesitation in recommending the establishment to anyone, very good value for money.

Tips:

Information was available from the owners, first hand, for all local things to see and means of getting there. Access to St.Ives & Carbis Bay could be on foot by the coastal path or by the bus which stops right outside the property and is much cheaper than parking in St.Ives with a 30min service. All beaches from Carbis Bay to St.Ives are excellent. The LA CASTITA Italian, Spanish & English Restaurant is around 300 meters walking distance from Thurlestone House and serves excellent food and was itself a good recommendation from the Thurlestone House owners. Located where many places are easily accessible by own or public transport.

Our recent stay at the Thurlestone was a real pleasure. The owners of the guest house Mandy and Gary, were very welcoming and amazingly friendly they couldn't have been more helpful. Our room was very clean and tasteful, as was the rest of the house. The breakfast was lovely and of very good quality, with lots of variety and choice. Would most definitely recommend Thurlestone to anyone. We hope to return next year. Thank you Mandy, Gary and staff for looking after us.

Tips:

My wife and I had seven days here never had a bad meal anywhere. Ate at several places during our stay. St Andrew Street Bistro is very good as is Hobblers,the Lifeboat Inn is also good. It is a good idea to book your table at many of the restaurants etc as they get very busy. Lizard Point and Lizard village are worth a visit as of course is Lands End, Tehidy Wood near Illogan is a nice place to walk through with swans ducks and grey squirrels ( which are very friendly ) there are several walks for all ages and fitness levels.

Tips:

This place is ideally suitated just a few miles from St Ives,it would be recommended that you should avoid going into St Ives with the intention of trying to park a car in peak season!,other modes of transport are available,we took the train which is a short walk from Mandy & Gary's place and takes you straight to a beach! It needs to be noted there are some steep descents and steep inclines that will have to be negotiated,e.g,wearing suitable foot ware,save the flip-flops for the beach!

You are a very friendly and approachable staff team. Made me feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. All your local knowledge was really helpful, you were able to direct us to local buses and trains and provided lots of information that helped us to make the most of our short stay in Cornwall. In fact you went over and above what we expected. Breakfast was delicius and plentiful and the rooms where lovely. I have no problems in recomemnding you to my friends and family. Thank you (we loved the hospitality bar a welcome and refreshing unexpeted treat at the end of each night)

Tips:

The local Tapas bar is lovely, take a walk in to St Ives its a bit hilly but worth the effort. Its all beautiful, plan your time an dhvae some alternatives Eden is great to do on a wet day as much of the attraction is under the Domes.

Tips:

St. Ives is a beautiful cornish town to visit. Bus stops are outside Thurlestone Guest House which makes it easier to visit if you don't wish to walk along the coastal paths. There are a few good restaurants within walking distance and the Thurlestone is in a good location.

We spent a week at Thurlestone. Mandy and Gary were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The breakfasts were great, plenty of choice and plenty of food! The location is central to everything and the bus and train services are good. We had a room with a sea view, it was very comfy, the only downside being the road is very busy and quite noisy on times. Overall tho a fab stay and highly recommended.

Tips:

St Ives itself is idyllic. A must see is the Minack Theatre, stunning views. The Atlantic Hotel is nice to eat but a little expensive. The Badger serves good food and a cracking Carvery! Also The Watermill just off the roundabout coming into St Ives is lovely...a bit "spit and sawdust" when you walk in but lovely outside space and the upstairs restaurant is the best place to eat. If you go to Newquay then The Fort is a great place to eat with great views and outside space.

Congratulations on friendly professionalism of Hosts and staff. Your attention to detail and willingness to go that extra mile is admirable. We certainly felt at home from the outset. Had some rather late nights out, so facility to let ourselves in was much appreciated. Immaculately kept accomodation, we did find our twin room a little cramped but this in no way detracted from enjoying our stay.

Tips:

Our brief stay was confined to St Ives and Carbis Bay where we were wedding guests, but can thoroughly recommend a day at least in and around St Ives with all its beauty and attractions. We also went to Mount St Michael on our way home which was a particular choice for us. Can also thoroughly recommend Porthminster Beach Restaurant approached along the beach or via St Ives rail station car park, which we visited twice

Fabulous stay. Gary and Mandy are great hosts and so friendly. Breakfast is excellent with a wide range and the full English is always well cooked and hot. (If you're lucky, there are seconds!!). Rooms are spotless and cleaned daily. Would really recommend this guest house

Tips:

Lovely views from the coastal path into St Ives and not too far to walk. If you are unable to walk the bus service is frequent and reliable, saves on looking for a parking space in St Ives! Gary or Mandy will recommend a couple of local pubs where the food is reasonable within walking distance.

Everybody was really helpful, kind, considerate and friendly. The only way to improve facilities would be to put a small fridge in the room in case anybody buys some local cheese/produce, and also the shower was a good temperature but not very powerful. Otherwise, everything was perfect and the breakfast was amazing!

Tips:

The walk along the footpath from Carbis Bay to St Ives was stunning on a sunny day. Might be best to check the tides as at low tide you can cut quite a bit off the corner by going across the beach.

Our stay at the B&B was far from excellent... Gary & Mandy are fantastic hosts and nothing is to much trouble for them.. They made us feel very welcome and it clearly was home from home.. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable , the shower was to die for and I found it hard to get out. Breakfast was amazing and there was loads to choose from.. Gary does excellent poached eggs... Think that's his trade mark now... We will be back soon and can't wait... Thanks Gary, Mandy and all the staff for a lovely stay

This was our second stay. We had a brilliant time last year and couldn't wait to get back. Mandy and Gary are more than welcoming and went to great lengths to ensure that our stay was as pleasant as possible. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and well presented. One of the hotels best features are the cooked breakfasts each morning. They are made to your exact requirements and is a great way to start the day. The hotel itself benefits from on-site parking which is very hard to come by in this area. Only a short taxi ride from St Ives and there a stunning coastal walks just opposite, which aren't too difficult. We would definitely recommend and will return again.

Tips:

In St Ives there are many restaurants and pubs to suit any cuisine or appetite. Our favourite pubs are The Lifeboat Inn and The Sloop. Both of these pubs do excellent food and are on the harbour front of St Ives. There are many family activities to do in the area and the hotel has many leaflets to help your decision. Our best recommendation would be to take the 15 minute journey out to The Rockpool Bar and Seafood Restaurant in Hayle. The bar is right on the beach and is newly refurbished, very welcoming with a large menu which made for a brilliant experience.

We had a lovely stay ,it's a shame it wasn't for longer ,but maybe next time . Mandy and Gary are so welcoming and the whole atmosphere is relaxed ,it's just like home from home . The Thurlestone is extremely clean and has all the facilities you would expect or need .will definitely be returning soon .

Tips:

We ate in "The Firehouse " and the food is excellent . We got the bus into town one night but because there was four of us it's actually a bit cheaper to get a taxi . There is also a lovely walk into town via the coastal route which takes about half an hour .

This was literally the best B&B I have ever stayed in. I am very critical when I stay at places and choose very carefully with a bit of an OCD for cleanliness.. This B&B smashed all my expectations. The owners were so lovely. I'm so used to reading "a friendly welcome" and not actually getting a sincere welcome that this couple were so refreshing!!! Can't fault the rooms, breakfast or service. Would be inclined to stay again purely because it was such a great experience and had no plans to return before!
