We stayed for 5 nights. The whole experience from start to finish was consistently excellent. The initial greeting, the rooms, the bar, the helpful tips and the wonderful breakfasts. It will take some beating! Every member of the team was service focused and helpful. If we could come back tomorrow and for every weekend we would!!

We stayed in this hotel some years ago, and we have always held it as a gold standard for hotels in St Ives, and boutique hotels in general. Lovely welcome, a surprise up grade, great atmosphere, room, staff, food, guests! It just did not disappoint.......and since our last visit, we have travelled widely. Thank you Boskerris...we will be back!

Lovely boutique hotel, simple service, fab terrace overlooking Carbis bay and very nicely decorated rooms and public areas. Hope for some evening sun and sit out on the terrace with a bottle of wine – we did, even though we needed blankets! It’s relatively easy to find, with good parking and close to Carbis Bay railway station. The rooms are... More

My husband and I were here on holiday for three nights and loved it. The hotel is lovely, with comfortable rooms and common areas that invite you to simply stay in and relax. The staff couldn't be more helpful, from booking dinner reservations to providing great advice on sightseeing. Breakfast is top-notch with wonderful cooked selections as well as fresh... More

We stayed in the Boskerris for a couple of nights to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. We stayed in a seaview superior room, which was superb. It had beautiful furnishings, an immaculately clean modern bathroom ,quality coffees/teas and water,robe & slippers, large comfy bed, sitting area, TV, and the most stunning view of the sea. We were welcomed and given... More

We spent 2 nights here in September on a short break. The hotel is good- but rather disappointingly set in the middle of a residential suburb some miles out of St Ives and about 500 yards from the coast. Transport into town is, however, easy by local train. It's really a hybrid between a hotel and a bed and breakfast.... More

This wouldn't be for everyone certainly not for families but high quality , high attention to detail. Great breakfast freshly made and varied although breakfast start time 830 a little leisurely if you are visiting on business - admittedly a small cohort in this tourist place!

We stayed a couple of nights for my Dad's 70th birthday. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, breakfast was amazing and the staff were wonderful, nothing too much trouble. It's so easy to get into St Ives on the train too, we wondered why we hadn't stayed in Carbis Bay before! Hope to visit again, lovely place!

We stayed for just one night, and after a couple of very expensive nights at "Padstein" (Padstow) sampling the Rick Stein hotel and restaurants had opted for a non-sea view room. Happily we were upgraded and so got to enjoy the open waters of the estuary. It's easy to assume that a hotel room doesn't matter so much, chances being... More
