What a lovely place to stay! We stayed for three nights, and if we hadn't already booked our next stop for our road trip, we would have changed our plans and stayed here for the rest of our holiday! Our room was small but neat, bathroom was great (with everything you need, and great towels), bed was super comfy, we...

We stayed for two nights for a family wedding in Caribs Bay. The room, although small, was comfortable and clean. The good sized bathroom had a good shower and was also very clean. The breakfast was superb! Really well cooked and with a good selection. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Would stay again and recommend to others visiting...

Stayed here with my partner in early September. The owners were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was superb and cooked fresh to order. They make a great team. Our room was small but we knew that's what we were getting. We just wanted a base to explore Cornwall. Would highly recommend here. Unfortunately we didn't have time to do the...

We very much enjoyed our three nights at Thurlestone Guest House. The room and en-suite were spotlessly clean and comfortable and the breakfasts superb. It is in an excellent location with sea views and convenient for St. Ives and an excellent base for travelling to other places. The coastal walk to St. Ives is a great experience with wonderful views...

We enjoyed our stay at this B and B which is located in Carbis Bay, a short distance from ST. IVES. The availability of parking is a great bonus in this challenging location. Mandy and Gary, the owners, are wonderfully friendly and helpful. They do a great job with the breakfast .

Stayed there for 3 Nights with my Girlfriend. When we had problems with our sat nav, we rang the owner Gary who parked his Car outside and stood by it so we knew had the right place which was a massive help. Offered us help with our Luggage, and gave us a very in depth tour of the house and...

“Room number 5 is a bit small. It overlooks a small courtyard at the back and is quiet.”
