Would stay again
Great location, friendly service, good breakfast, room was clean and tidy, not much you can ask for in a long Weekend break, would stay again if we went back to the area.

The most perfect B&B, highly recommend
We honestly could not fault our stay here. The B&B is in the most perfect location, within an easy distance walk to both Carbis Bay beach (about 10 minutes) and St Ives (a 15-20 min walk along a scenic coastal path). The walk to and from the beach is up a very steep hill though, but this is the case no matter where you stay in Carbis bay. The room was much bigger than we expected, the bed was huge and soo comfy - we both had the best night sleep! It is very quiet too, you barely knew there were other people staying in the B&B. The facilities were immaculate and they really had thought about every detail and included everything you might need for your stay. Christine and Geoff honestly could not do more for us, they were such a lovely couple and very helpful and attentive. They have adapted the B&B really well to cope with the current social distancing measures and they were not an issue in the slightest. We loved our stay here and would highly recommend to everyone.

Exceptional BnB!
Exceptional stay! Beautiful bedrooms with attention to detail. This BnB really deserves its 4 star rating. I’ve stayed at some nice hotels before but the level of service you get here is far better! The rooms are beautifully furnished, I even found myself hunting online to buy the same bed linen!

Spot On
Helen and Neil are so welcoming and know how to please. Whole place bright and spotless. Breakfasts amazing and the little extra personal touches so lovely. Location perfect and even a bus to St Ives right outside although we preferred the coastal path. All in all Spot On.

A very Enjoyable and pleasant stay
We stayed at the B&B for a long weekend visit to St Ives. Helen and Neil were excellent hosts, very accommodating, friendly and provided and excellent service. The B&B was very nicely decorated, with modern facilities and very clean. There was a good choice at breakfast. There were also many small touches that made are stay even better, including the chocolate by the bed each day, the choices of tea and coffees in the room. to Helens knowledge of the local area and directions to amenities and the beach. Will visit again

Fantastic B&B
Great stay and will definitely be back! The rooms were great - spacious, modern, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was lovely, and the owners, Helen & Neil, could not have done more for us or made us feel more welcome! Overall a perfect stay.
