I enjoyed my stay and felt staff were very helpful. My only comment is, That as a single traveller the room was fine but I feel is far too small for a double. The logistics of moving around another person would be very tight indeed!

Very friendly. Great value room. I didnt have seaview room on main road (but excellent sound proofing throughout never heard traffic) but instead had cheaper side room overlooking delightful garden. Perfectly clean and very pleasantly designed. Gail has everything so well organised - ironing board etc and extra milk coffee etc on landing so you always have what you need. And, her information folder is great - tells you everything you need for stay, clear instructions of how everything works in your room and places to go. Gail is also available at breakfast to enthusiastically give you advice based on her experience and love of the area. I liked being left to my own privacy and not having room serviced everyday unless you want something. I prefer things left as I like them and not having bed made etc. I also liked not having breakfast included. I added a great value breakfast and dinner in the vegetarian restaurant The Bean Inn attached downstairs with local artists work on walls and very friendly waiting staff, then on last morning eating all my lovely St Ives cakes for breakfast rather than having to carry them- it's good to have the option. Will definately be staying again.

Tips:

Bus T2 stops just outside. 3 stops or 20mins walk to St Ives. 20mins bus to Hayle National Express bus stop or you walk the Coast rd to both. Tesco is 2min walk away hidden behind greenery at roundabout.

Tips:

Easy bus travel to St Ives, and beyond. Tate Gallery, Barbara Hepworth museum and garden, the Leach Pottery and Museum. Boat trips from the harbour to see seals. We ate twice at the Bean Inn - absolutely excellent! For vegans, discovered the Market Place cafe in St Ives offers vegan cream tea!

We were not met by the owners on arrival,just the staff of the restaurant who informed us that the breakfast was only available between 8.30 and 9.30. As we needed to leave at 7.30 this was no good for us. The restaurant said the best they could do was to leave a croissant, fruit and a bottle of water. This is not good enough.

Tips:

If you are happy with a vegetarian breakfast at a fixed time it might be ok,but otherwise we wouldn't recommend it.

Thank you Gail, Paula and Katie for a relaxing, cosy stay with you at Coast! I felt totally at home, and the creative veggie breakfasts were great! Hope to see you (and the resident seagull) again another year. :-)

Tips:

I really enjoyed the walk from Carbis Bay beach to Lelant across Porthkidney Sands... great if you like some peace and quiet away from the summer crowds. Otherwise it was very convenient to be able to jump on and off buses with the 7-day bus pass covering the whole of Cornwall.

A wonderful stay at Coast! Lovely room and really appreciated the excellent service and food from Karen and Paula at breakfast time! Especially enjoyed Bertie the cat's company too! Thank you to all ~ would definitely recommend Coast and hope to return again

Tips:

If you don't have your own transport, would recommend getting the bus from St Erth station to Coast B&B as there's a bus just outside and that way you can avoid the walk up the hill from Carbis Bay station with your luggage If you plan on visiting galleries in st Ives would recommend buying an art pass from the information centre there ~ gets you into Barbara Hepworth, Tate St Ives, Leach Potteries, some galleries in Penzance too ~ the pass lasts for a week and you can visit as many times as you want!

I was tucked away in the top floor in an incredibly cozy room with a stunning view of the hillside town and beach. The room was small, but I knew that going in and it was honestly part of the charm. I had everything I needed. The bed was clean and very comfortable, and waking up in the morning to with the sun was brilliant. Upon my arrival we were greeted very warmly, and breakfast every morning was simple but delicious. I mentioned an allergy the first day and they remembered it without me reminding them on subsequent days. Had dinner in the Bean and it was delicious. A great stay. Wifi was slow for me in the top room and occasionally didn't work at all, FYI, but that wasn't catastrophic. Friendly, clean, comfortable. Great stay.

Tips:

Take one of the pubic footpaths down to the beach. It's quite steep, but so beautiful to walk through the lush green and hear the birds and waterfalls. Carbis Bay Beach is beautiful. I went for a long run to the east along the coastal footpath and it was absolutely stunning. The beach just east of Carbis Bay is actually breathtaking. Long and wide and it seems to go on forever. A nice easy walk into St Ives, which is lovely and quaint and filled with good food and drink and shops. If you're a coffee person, go to "Mount Zion" in St Ives. Tiny coffee place in a 16th century shack. It's high on pretension but honestly a delicious cup of coffee. In Carbis Bay I discovered the public footpaths on the top of the town, a lovely place to walk or run, giant rhododendrons everywhere, lots of wildflowers, all leading up to the big stone statue thing at the top of the town. The Cornish Arms, just down the street from the Coast, is a lovely local pub with great beer/cider and food. Felt very welcome and relaxed there. There's a Tesco just down the street, so if you need to stop and get supplies/wine for your day of wandering, it's quite easy.

The room we were in Sea Campion was too cramped. We paid for the most expensive room thinking it would be the best, but it wasn't. It is basically a single room with a double bed squeezed in. Other rooms were much nicer, ie the ones we were able to look in to.

I enjoyed my stay at Coast! It was nice to see the owners and other guests at Breakfast and get recommendations about where to go and what to see. They always asked about my plans for the day and had tips and suggestions to make my day better.

Tips:

The food at Coast is lovely, both breakfast and dinner at the Bean Inn. Do make sure to book a table for dinner early. If you book it at breakfast on the same day, you may already run out of time slots - this place is popular! There are also lovely places in St. Ives that cater to vegans and vegetarians. I had great meals at The Mex and at Blas Burgerworks.

The room, whilst having a really good view and nicely decorated, was very compact. We were walking the coast path and arrived late and wet. Given the key by a waitress in the restaurant downstairs, not part of the B & B. Radiator didn't work and nowhere to hang wet clothing. The breakfast is semi self service and was fine. It is on a busy road but set back a little which helps. Felt a little impersonal don't think the owners live on sight, there is a telephone number for problems.

Fine for one night if your travelling by car, or used to Travel lodge.

We stayed at Coast twice for two consecutive nights first on Thursday 10th August and then on Tuesday 15th. Parking is a great boon in the overcrowded resort of St Ives. Friendly staff,comfortable room. We just lacked a 'hot room' to dry our shoes and clothes when we came back literally 'soaked through' from a walk along the coast that ended in a an hour of pouring rain. Fortunately this was our last day and we could 'dump' our wet things in the car boot.

Tips:

The Bean Inn is to be recommended for its food. Nice long walks along the coast for keen walkers. Parking in and around St Ives is certainly difficult especially if you want to park for just an hour or so. Beware of popular guide-book recommended eating places in St Ives : without a reservation you have a problem !

As first time visitors to St. Ives, we had no idea we were supposed to book a table at The Bean Inn so far in advance. We were so looking forwards to eating there since we were staying at Coast B&B and were disappointed that we couldn't. Would have been great to try lunch and/or dinner by you. When booking a room there, it would be helpful to ask if people intend to eat at the restaurant so that they know they need to schedule in advance.

Tips:

If you want to eat at The Bean Inn restaurant, and are also staying at Coast, make reservations to eat in advance! Or you might be out of luck.

You were all so lovely, warm and helpful Coast and Bean Inn. It was a joy to stay with you. I will definitely recommend you to others. Already have. And write a glowing Trip Advisor review. I love that you have a vege restaurant on site that makes delicious food. So yummy and very convenient And that you get a vegetarian breakfast! Unheard of!

Tips:

That walk from Sennen Cove to Lands End taking the open air bus was an absolute highlight. As was walking to town on coastal walk. Think good to suggest people do that at least once. And Barbara Hepworths work. And coffee at the Tate cafe. All things you suggested Gail that I wouldn't have known about or known how to prioritise otherwise. So thank you. We rely on google maps so much now to find places. I would let people know reception might be patchy at Carbis station so download a map to Coast before arrive or book a taxi so know where to go on arrival.

There is a 15 min walk down into St Ives or some short walks down to Carbis Bay beach. A little hilly on the way back to both, but there is a very good bus service going into and back from St Ives. It really doesn't take long to go anywhere from this location. So many places to visit in Cornwall.

A pleasant but slightly strange B&B. Staff are around only at breakfast time and were unwelcoming when I arrived late on Sunday night (at the time I had stated) as I should have known it was their night off. They were perfectly friendly in the morning. Rooms are not cleaned in any way during a stay so bin emptying, loo roll additions and clean cups are all self-service. This is made clear in the room guide, but wasn't what I had expected The single bedroom is all bed and very little room. The breakfasts are excellent and you should book an evening meal at the restaurant, which is also very good.

The B & B is very clean and comfortable and a little quirky. The artwork exhibited is interesting and makes a pleasing and relaxed environment.

It was very much appreciated. We want our come and stay every year from now on!

Tips:

With only a 10-15 minute walk to Carbis Bay train station, getting in to St Ives by foot (so not worrying about parking) was very good. It also meant you could have a couple of drinks with your meal out and just get the train back. The last train back was 10:30pm so definitely not too early.

Everyone at Coast B&B was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I am gluten free but breakfasts were delicious especially the pancakes! My room was the Wild Poppy room, small but big enough for one - in fact very cosy. I was glad to be at the back of the house so no traffic noise from the main road. The location is good with regular buses into St Ives. And the wonderful restuarant on site is a must - fantastic food at a reasonable price, and then you can just pop back upstairs to your room. I was glad that towels weren't changed daily as that has always seemed a waste of precious resources. It also means once if very private. I needed to stay in sometimes as I had a foot injury so the ability to come and go and be there in the day was most welcome. Overall brilliant place to stay and well worth every penny.

Tips:

Its worth investigating different bus companies as one is much cheaper than another. It's a while since July (Nov now) so I can;t recall the name of the cheaper company. They stop in the centre of St Ives whereas the main bus company stops at the main coach stop outside of the town with a short walk in.

Lovely, interesting building with fabulous views over the bays from a great clifftop vantage point.The staff couldn't have been more helpful or attentive. The veggie restaurant on the ground floor was wonderful, and we wished it had been open on all the nights we were there (closed Sun / Mon). But the Saturday night meal was a real treat.

Tips:

Thanks to local friends we discovered a lovely pub in Lelant, a couple of miles away called The Watermill. Delightful old country pub. For great veggie day time eating, try Archie Browns in Penzance and Truro.

A charming B&B with friendly and helpful staff. Great food, comfortable and clean rooms in a perfect location with stunning views. The rooms are cosy and crammed full of beautiful artwork. We loved our stay and we will be back!

Tips:

The in-house restaurant is delicious, as is spinacio's in St Ives (another veggie restaurant). Loads to do within short drives. Beware that Land's End is tacky and expensive, but the views there are lovely still! (You pay for a weeks parking there, so if you are lucky someone might already have gone there and paid for parking who is willing to give up their ticket). The walk to St Ives along the coastal path is beautiful, but for those of you used to flatter locations, be aware your calf muscles will remind you that you did it the next day!

Coast is quite simply the best place to stay in Cornwall! The food is delicious, all the staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms have everything you could possibly need. We've been going twice a year, sometimes three times a year, for about 10 years. We wouldn't consider going anywhere else.

Tips:

In St Ives there's the Babara Hepworth museum, the Tate Modern and many galleries dotted along the narrow winding roads. The surrounding coastline and scenery are stunning whether on foot on travelling by car.

We stayed over four nights for our honeymoon, it was superb! We stayed in the Bell Heather room which has a stunning view of the sea and is quite stylishly adorned with beautiful pictures. The en-suite bathroom was very clean and more than spacious enough for the two of us to store our toiletries. We were blown away by how soft the bed linen was, so lovely! The staff were very helpful and friendly, Gail kindly printed the day's weather forecast for us each morning, thank you! My partners favourite thing was the banana pancakes, and I fear that my pancake cooking standards may now have to improve. I enjoyed the full english breakfast, the tomatoes being my favourite item as they were so sweet and perfectly cooked (I don't normally like tomatoes at all!) We would whole-heartedly recommend this charming, warm and beautiful B&B to anyone and are, ourselves, looking forward to visiting again. Thank you Coast!

Tips:

We found it very easy to nip to St Ives via taxi, or via the coastal footpath, which has breathtaking views. It is rather steep in places but well worth the twenty minutes it takes to reach St Ives. We ate at a few places that deserve a mention. The Mex in St Ives was so much fun, the staff were darlings and the food was incredible, there were plenty of veggie options. We also ate at On Shore, along the St Ives waterfront, the views were lovely. It is mostly seafood, however I really enjoyed their vegetable risotto. We stopped at The Balcony, again in St Ives, which has beautiful views of the harbour and a few nice burger options. It's worth noting as it was a little more economically priced. One of our favourite spots was The Rum and Crab shack, quirky and relaxed, we both enjoyed honeymoon mojitos that were unlike any I've ever had before, simply divine! Spots worth visiting are St Micheal's Mount, access is via the causeway from Marazion or by boat (SO MUCH FUN!) It is a bit of a climb to the top, so good footwear is advisable, however, I am rather unfit and made it with plenty of energy to explore the fascinating castle! The Lost Gardens of Helligan were mesmerising, steeped in history and a real love story for regeneration, I'd recommend these world-renowned botanical gardens to anyone who is a romantic or a child at heart! It's worth noting that you can purchase a combined ticket for Helligan and the Eden Project (also incredible) at a bit of a discount. Finally we visited Seal Rock. We went on the Sea Horse and booked through the Sea Ranger. We enjoyed an hour and a half of gorgeous Cornish coastline views and met some beautiful wild seals, nothing could have prepared me for their cuteness. We also spotted some Sunfish. There is still so much that we want to see and do, I'm certain that we'll return soon. To anyone visiting this beautiful part of the country - you will love it!

A very nice B&B located strategically near to St Ives. The best thing about Coast is surely the hearty breakfast that we can order in the morning. The staffs were also friendly and helpful. As we were quite unsure what to see during our 2 days stay in Cornwall, Gail was really helpful and gave suggestions and what we should visit. Stayed at the top floor rooms and it was surely worth the climb. The sea view was amazing. Even my parents who aren't fans of stair climbing were satisfied. Would definitely recommend this B&B for those visiting West Cornwall.

Tips:

Walkable to St Ives, but for those who aren't fans of uphill or long walk can take the train to St Ives from Lelant Sailings. Parking in St Ives during peak season is a nightmare.

We enjoyed our stay. The rooms were quite small but had everything we needed. The only hiccup being no hot water to the basin in the double bedroom, which was only fixed halfway through our stay. The food was great and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Tips:

It was a good 20 minute walk to the town but the bus service was pretty good. Parking in high season - never easy! We were only in St Ives for a few days but would strongly recommend the boat trip to Seal Island (we have kids). With regard to local restaurants, if you're going in high season, definitely book ahead. Please note - the vegetarian restaurant, Spinaccio's, is closed permanently although still advertised in vegetarian publications. The service in Pizza Express wasn't the usual high standard.

Excellent breakfast and the bean inn food was also really good. Was nice to not have to worry about it all being veggie! Staff were friendly and helpful too. Bed was very comfortable. I would say you could advertise the the room with 'sea glimpses' not just 'garden view' as we could see the sea sat on the window seat. (Tree Mallow room). Grasping at straws here, but the only problem I would point out is we thought the b&b was closer to st ives than it was. Although in a great location and fairly close it was a good half hour/40 mins walk- up a big hill on the way back. It was fine for us but less able people would need to be more aware of the distance before they set out. Your info pack says something like 'turn left and just down the hill'. Over all a fantastic stay, thank you :-)

Tips:

The Minack theatre is well with a visit! It's £5 cash to park at Lands End. Not having cash we had to drive 5 miles to the nearest place we could get any and head back!

This is such a lovely relaxed place to stay. Breakfasts were delicious and the beds were so comfy. The people who run it could not have been more helpful. It is eco friendly as well so you can ask for a change of towels if you need them and can change your cups and glasses at breakfast. It feels more like a home from home We had the downstairs room and when the restaurant is open you can hear the diners but this did not bother us at all. I would definitely stay here again. It was lovely.

Tips:

It is a downhill walk into town, and downhill to the beaches so be prepared for an uphill walk back but you can walk along the coast path mostly or Coast is on a bus route. There are pubs and restaurants in the local area within a 10 min walk. Coast have a veggie restaurant on site open 5 evenings and the food is amazing.

Staff were warm and friendly. Although our room appeared clean, it smelled heavily of damp. It was particularly bad by the side of the bed and in the wardrobe. The food and staff in the Bean Inn were superb, but I do think that Coast should let guests know before they book a room that the restaurant is closed 2 days per week. As vegans, the reason we booked in at Coast was because we were hoping to have breakfast and evening meal covered without having to look for somewhere to eat. During our stay, the building alarm kept going off and no staff were around to stop it! Waiting 20 minutes for someone to come and deal with it wasn't very pleasant.

A wonderful bed and breakfast with lovely food and service. The views are breathtaking, the rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is superb.

Tips:

Strongly recomend the Bean Restaurant for an evening meal even if you are not vegetarian as the food is imaginative and delicious. Lots of things to do in St Ives - art galleries, the beach, the Tate, etc. Carbis Bay beach is a 10 minute walk away - the sands are white and inviting.

We had a great time at the Coast B&B, the staff was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The breakfast and the Bean Inn dishes were excellent.

Tips:

The Bean Inn veggi restaurant which is part of Coast is very good, you need to book in advance tho as it is usually booked out for the evening. There is a bus stop in either direction very close to the B&B and a large Tesco is also just 5 min away. We usually walked into St.Ives, there are some nice hidden foot paths along the coast if you want to avoid walking along the main road into St. Ives. We also recommend the Bus Pass which allows you to travel on any bus as many times as you like all over cornwall for 1,2, 3 or 7 days.

We love the friendliness of everyone at this excellent B&B. The fact that it is vegetarian is the icing on the cake! Evening meals are also available and delicious - plus beer and wine are sold at dinner too.

Tips:

The walk to St. Ives along the coastal path is beautiful and brings you to a stunning beach. Look out for a couple of wild seals who come into St. Ives harbour in the evenings when the sea is in. They follow the fishing boats hoping for an easy meal, ha, ha. Visit the 3 miles of beach at Hayle for unspoilt sands and walk towards Godrevy lighthouse. There is a great café on the National Trust carpark there.

Still a bit taken aback by the fact that there was no traditional room-cleaning during the stay. I read about it by chance on the evening of our arrival and could therefore avoid the unhappy surprise it would have caused on returning after a whole day out! First experiençe of a DIY B&B!The room felt also very damp but we discovered the de-humidifier and turned it on...to no effect until we realised the water reservoir was full..we took care to empty it but it would be worthwhile to check before guests arrival. The bean Inn was true to its reputation, bravo! The breakfast was also good.

Helpful and friendly staff, comfortable room, good food. St Ives a good stretch of the legs or a short bus ride away. Carbis Bay beach close and beautiful, safe for kids.

Tips:

Coast also runs a vegetarian restaurant on the same site which we were unable to attend due to our daughter but which seemed very popular and had an interesting menu - perhaps next time! The Lower Bar on Carbis beach was good value for snacks and drinks and Peppers restaurant in Fore Street, St Ives was good for a family meal but, as with all places in the town, you need to book to be sure of a table.

apparently you can see Seals in St Ives port but we never did! The Coastal Paths both ways are lovely. We walked the path to the kidney beach and then caught the train back to St Ives - super train ride.

Tips:

If you're staying a week it's probably worth getting the bus pass - it's an easy stroll down to St Ives but the walk back up the hall is less enticing at the end of a long day. Definitely pre-book if you want a table in the restaurant in the evening - it's very popular!

Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Chilled, relaxed, cool atmosphere at the coast. The coast had a fresh and vibrant ambiance. Unique feel with the dragon fly door knocker, doggy door stop, original cinema seats in the lounge. Also fresh, vibrant art work around the B&B with themed rooms to compliment. We stayed in the red poppy feild room, which although small for a double (which was explained to us prior to booking) was quaint and freshly designed. Every request was catered for such as going out of their way at breakfast to suit our needs.

Tips:

The Coast B&B is close to the coastal path to Ives and carbis bay which is worth walking. If you want to body board it's worth the 15 min drive to Gwithian beach as the waves are far better than the flat carbis bay. The bean inn is a must as the food was excellent with such flavours and night ambiance. Worth a drive to the Minack theatre. The Coast is ideally situated for a base to visit St Ives and carbis bay beach on foot. Worth going to lands end, St Michelle mount and the Minack theatre as a scenic drive of about 45 mins. There's also a handy superstore tesco 5 minute walk away from the Coast,which also has a large beach goods section. The Coast has parking conveniently on its doorstep which was a plus. Wifi connection was a little slow so not to rely on it, but it's free.

As a young couple in our early 30's looking for a short relaxing and reasonable break in beatiful St. Ives, The Coast B & B was excellent. The rooms were cosy, clean and well designed to make them a lovely place after time on the beach. Not to mention pretty coastal touches, a small window seat with a view and tea/coffee. As a foodie I loved breakfast and staying two nights were able to sample the lovely hot veggie breakfast and not mention heavenly banana pancakes! Reminded me of ones I had in Bali:) the breakfast also included bread, spreads, soya milk, cereals and fresh fruit. It felt like home with staff always on hand to see if we had been 'fed':) one of the lovely owners was also not to far and was happy to give suggestions which was also appreciated. The place also had lovely art work and very comfortable beds. All in all we thought it was such a gem of a place and will be back not to mention a stones throw away from Carbis bay.

Tips:

An italian grill restaurant down the road from the restaurant was lovely after we checked in late! Also if your not up for vegan/veggie food or would rather mix it up a bit it was nice.

Squashed for 2 people with 2 suitcases 2 carry-on bags. Squashed access to the beds. Very comfortable otherwise, airy downstairs dining rooms, nice breakfasts and lovely staff. Watch out for the shower- unpredictable temp, poor stream of water; squashed for getting dry and hanging clothes as well as towels in the space available. Since when do 2 people not get 2 hand towels -ask if you prefer one each. They will look into putting a hand grip in the shower.

Tips:

Don't drive into town etc. Get a day bus ticket and do Cornwall sights on buses, just coordinate to leave time to get on and off. Change from Mousehole to Lands End bus at Newlyn, but you need to walk to the other street, again to be checked before you decide to do this - otherwise, go back to Penzance!

Carbis Bay amazing beach, but it is advisable to park at the railway station for a day ticket of £5 (coins). If you prefer to walk please bear in mind a very steep walk.

Tips:

plenty of great places to eat we had an amazing Pizza at "Onshore" They were as passionate about their service as they were their food.( and I don't normally like Pizza ) it really made the trip. I stay away a lot, so I suppose you get a bit fussy. The website over sold, and the experience under delivered . Smell of cooking drove us out of the top floor room. Grass needed cutting, bathroom shelf needed fixing, vinyl floor tiles needed gluing down that sort of small details , nothing too serious, but still expect better than that for £74

I enjoyed my visit with my brother, very nice people, the only slightly negative aspect I would say is that being a Vegan, it's a shame that Coast b&b is only vegetarian. It would be a really positive step forward in my opinion if you served only Vegan food due to the imense cruelty involved in the dairy industry. Thanks for a nice stay though, and I hope you move forward in the right direction.

Above all we found the in-house restaurant most useful and delicious. Breakfast was substantial and a good selection. Especially after a full day out, one has the option of having excellent vegetarian food and then relax in the room. Driving from London we found this as heaven on earth!

Year after year, I am drawn back to Coast - for its friendly talented owners and staff, simple mellow ambience and setting - high up on the St Ives Road with views to the sea and the famous Godrevy lighthouse beyond. In addition to the very tasty and substantial vegetarian breakfasts, there is on site an excellent vegetarian restaurant open in the evenings -'The Bean Inn'. The delicious recipes have been devised by Paula and Kate who have co-authored their very own cookbook - 'Yummi' which is also available for guests to purchase should they wish to do so. The ensuite rooms are simple yet thoughtfully furnished - there is a distinct eco-feel throughout and many original art works on display. TV, tea & coffee facilites in every room. It is also possible for guests to sit out or dine in the front garden with sea views. All very reasonably priced and affordable for singletons as well as couples and families and especially those on a budget. I highly recommend.

Tips:

For those without transport, St Ives is just a brisk 15 minute walk downhill. Alternatively, there is a regular bus service outside on the St Ives Road. Nearby and also downhill is the wonderful sandy beach at Carbis Bay and the railway station which runs regular trains into St Ives. The train (which feels very like a toy train), winds around the headland above the beach to St Ives and takes about 5 minutes approx. £2 return! Also runs in the opposite direction through Lelant to St Erth where it links the Paddington - Lands End line. For daytrips there is a great little travel agents called 'Oates Travel' in the centre of St Ives, running day returns to Mevagissy, Lands End, The Eden Project, Tintagel, Jamaica Inn and other places of interest - again, all very affordable. There are many artists working in St Ives and the Tate Gallery overlooking Porthmeor Beach (great for surfing!) and The Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden are well worth a visit.

This is about the 5th time I have stayed here and it is always a positive experience. The service and the food is excellent. I have a vegan diet and they provide delicious choices. Would recommend this to anyone.

Tips:

When The Bean Inn is closed on Monday then Spinacios, a veggie restaurant, is open and vice versa so there is always somewhere good to eat for veggies and vegans.

We had a very pleasant stay, excellent food both at breakfast and in the Bean restuarant during the evening. Staff very friendly and helpful. Ideal base for vegetarians, definately coming back as so many walks yet to do. Lovely room with great view of coastline.

Tips:

Ideal location for walking into St Ives along coast path as parking is a nightmare there. If you like walking, walk the coast path to Cardis bay and beyond, stunning coastline and fantastic beaches.

Very welcoming: nice that you're veggie (with good food!). Room was well priced (but, therefore, a bit tiny - had to sit on windowsill to watch telly). Bed so, so low I almost had to move out when it came to bedtime (actually considered sleeping in the car)- but that was my fault as I should have checked that in advance; someone without wobbly hip would have been OK. But oh my goodness! The noise from the adjacent bathroom!

Tips:

Try and eat at the restaurant. Minack, of course... just being in the area feels good.

What a goergus place to stay in Carbis Bay, we had a fab 3 nights there, the restaurant is great, brilliant menu and decor so quirky, we loved the matchstick guitar and blue velvet cinema seats. Amazing artwork too unfortuantely we didn't get a chance to buy, but all the more reason to come back again soon!!

Tips:

Coastal walk from Carbis Bay into St Ives is beautiful. We did the boat seal trip which was fun. Spoilt for choice reataurant and bar wise, we had a drink at the Sloop on Sat night, really good atmosphere.

Tips:

When you are not eating at the Bean Inn, try Spinacios in St Ives (veggie restaurant). Things to see - the Mermaid at Zennor Church, Madron Well and Celtic Chapel, Men-an-Tol, Lanyon Quoit - and then Lanyon Tea Rooms for sweet and savoury cream teas.

Tips:

We had a great stay - our only suggestion would be to extend the internet service to the top floor, especially as there is no common space downstairs in the evenings.

Tips:

The coastal path out to St Ives and beyond is a must. Taking the open top bus to Marazion was also great, and the bus stop is just over the road from Coast. Lastly, we thought the ice cream from Moomaid of Zennor was the best.

Fantastic food and friendly helpful staff. Beautiful room with great views.

Tips:

Walk into St. Ives along the coast path. Tate always worth a visit and stop in the cafe to check out the views. Drive just out of St. Ives towards Zennor and pull in at Little Trevalgan for spectacular 360 degree views back to St. Ives. Walk coast path from Zennor to lands end or Sennen cove and get the bus back. Check out Lavant and Geevor tin mines for local mining history and walk along coast path towards Botallack for more mines on the cliff edge.

Very welcoming helpful and friendly. Comfortable rooms and great food. I think when someone is booking for nights when the Bean Inn is not open it would be helpful to point it out, as otherwise you only find put when click through to the Bean Inn Website. The fact you have a restaurant on site is one of the main attractions if you are a veggie traveller.

Tips:

Spinaccios on the Harbour front in St Ives is excellent although I am sure you are too! Not open Wednesdays. 100% vegetarian If getting bus into St Ives buy return tickets as valid for several days and much cheaper.

While the room, breakfast and hospitality were all excellent, a major drawback for us was the lack of internet access. This is the only thing that is likely to stop us re-booking as we didn't realize it wouldn't have internet and in future we would look for a b&b with internet in the first instance.

Tips:

Such amazing vegetarian food at the Bean Inn (same building as the Coast). If you are a vegetarian/vegan then you'll want to go no further, but you'll need to book early. Things to do: Check out the Japanese gardens near St Mawgan - a hidden gem.

I really enjoyed my stay at Coast. The people were friendly, the breakfast was excellent with a nice choice and flexibility. The rooms were nicely furnished and clean - I was lucky enough to stay in 2 different ones, although 1 was less comfortable than the other. The one slight negative was the noise from the road and of course the seagulls. If you are easily woken, I would give up the sea view for a room on the side or the back away from both cars and gulls. I was so very lucky to get a lift from Kate to the station in St Erth when I confused the time of my train back to London - really nothing was too much trouble for these very relaxed hosts. I was very very grateful. The only thing which I think could be nice is a seating area for people to sit in if the weather is not nice enough to sit outside. If you are an internet addict, be warned that the surroundings of this area are poor for connectivity both wifi and phone. All over St Ives it's hard to connect - so make sure you have a contingency plan.

Tips:

The coast path into St Ives takes no more than 20-30 minutes for an average speed walker (taking time for photos!!). Probably best to get the bus for young children. There is a Tesco open until 10pm 6 days a week, within 5 minutes from Coast where you can stock up on bottled water or other necessary items (plasters and savlon for me unfortunately..). The nearest train station is a 6-7 minute walk, but beware the very very steep hill when you arrive. There are not really many taxis around - at least not that I saw, so probably best to get one of the internet and call in advance. Ace cars are good. The Bean restaurant is very very nice, but small, so think about booking in advance if you want to eat there.

Staff were amazing...the main issue was the shower did not work..so ran boiling hot then freezing cold...so for 3 days this was not very comfortable. Even the bed sheets had some blue marks on them? The room just needed a bit of overall TLC. The breakfast felt pretty basic too and the hot food pretty avaerage...especially given the positive reviews given elsewhere. Even a hot chocolate ordered one evening was served cold. Sorry!Otherwise the location and as I have said were lovely.

friendly, welcoming and comfortable stay; great food choice at breakfast and lovely food menu at the Bean restaurant; nice relaxed atmosphere and attitude; top-up supplies available on landing without having to ask which is nice; great art work, cards and cook book o display; regular visitors were staying whilst we were there which goes to show guests happy to return (as we would be); if I had a criticism it would be that windows could do with a black out blind or lined curtains;

Tips:

short distance down to the lovely coast path taking you into St Ives (or the other way to Lelant); we liked the hut on the beach at Carbis Bay underneath the [lovely] hotel where we sat and had a coffee just looking out to sea and reading our books; we love Porthgwidden Beach (watched three seals in shallow waters here); St Ives Porthmeor Beach and cafe; Tate St Ives great building with wonderful views from top terrace from cafe; Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden is a lovely place; also love sitting and walking around the Island amongst many other places in St Ives; Farmers market in Guild Hall Thursdays; great yarn shop near cinema;

Tips:

Perfect location to walk down to Carbis Bay beach, 15 mins, walking back up depends on your fitness ! I take the easy option and walk the Coast path to St Ives, way back is a bus or taxi, £3.50, or a nice uphill walk !

It was a shame that wifi did not work from our room and that curtains are not strong enough to protect from the light to come in. On both morning, we woke up quite early. If breafast could be extended up to 10.00am it would be nicer for the week end.

Tips:

leave the car if you're going into St Ives and take the coastal path to St Ives from Coast! Some good places to eat and drink in St Ives, spoilt for choice. If you don't want to walk back from St Ives buses are frequent and drop you right outside. Recommend a day trip to the Isles of Scilly on the ferry. Marazion and Minnack theatre are worth a visit.

Lovely people, great room and the food was excellent. My only reservation was that the size of our family room was a little small. Apart form that it was brilliant!

Tips:

The Tate was closed for renovations, but the Barbara Hepworth Museum is definitely worth a visit, even with small children. Their family activity provided a great couple of hours entertainment for our 3 year old - searching for different items in the museum and drawing the sculptures. We ate at the Bean restaurant every night (except the Sunday). It's part of the Coast B&B on the ground floor and the food and service was excellent with plenty of options for vegans. One added bonus is that the bus stop is just outside with the train station within easy walking distance. Great for going on a family walk to St Ives or along the coast, enjoying the beaches and catching the bus, or train, back.
