    Historical Traveler Reviews Treliska Guesthouse St Ives

    Fantastic!

    from

    We stayed at the Treliska for 3 nights over Easter, and can thoroughly recommend it. It is a high quality, modern B&B, located on the edge of the town centre, with some great touches that make it very memorable.

    We stayed in room 6, which is located at the top of the house. The room and en-suite shower room were quite small, but the quality of the furnishings is very high. The room had a double bed, TV, DVD player and kettle.

    The breakfasts were fantastic, with a choice of cooked breakfasts, cereals, toast, fruit, yoghurt etc.

    The hosts were very friendly, without being overbearing.

    There is an Apple iMac located in the lounge, which you can use for free. There is also a fantastic coffee machine which you can use all day and night!

    As we visited at Easter, we were delighted to find some Lindt mini-eggs waiting for us at our breakfast table on Easter Sunday.

    The only downside was the lack of parking, but that is true of most of St Ives. We managed to park in the station car park, which is a 5 min walk, and paid 12 for 3 days. Oh, and the seagulls were pretty noisy, but again, that's par for the course for St Ives.

    Overall, excellent value for money.

    Superb St Ives!

    from

    After reading the rave reviews on this website, we decided to visit Treliska a on a crisp and sunny January weekend. The location, cleanliness, comfort and style was second-to-none not to mention the wonderful breakfast and exceptional hospitality shown to us by the owners! We can't think of a single area where an improvement can be made and will be returning later this year to enjoy St Ives in the summer......fantastic!

    We'll definately go back again and again!

    from

    This place was absolutely brilliant.

    The room was fantastically clean and fresh with fantastic contemporary decor. The service from the owners was brilliant, so friendly and helpful, (they met us outside the B&B and followed us in their car to the car park was which is a short walking distance away!).

    Breakfast was lovely and fresh and not greasy. The variety was brilliant too with a choice of everything. Whatever you want, provided they've got it, they'll do it and at no extra cost. The bread is baked fresh every day.

    The location of the B&B is brilliant a 2 minute walk to the all the shops and restaurants.

    Really recommend this to everyone. Excellent value for money.

    The only negative i can think of about this place is that the car park is up a very steep hill about 5 minutes walk from the B&B, but saying that parking is very limited in this area.

    An exceptional B & B!

    from

    Treliska is a wonderful bed and breakfast in every way - we've just come back from a blissful week there.

    The owners, Gill and Mike, are natural hosts and do everything they can to ensure you enjoy your holiday. They make sure you can park in a convenient place and offer good advice for where to go and where to eat.

    As mentioned in other reviews, they also have a pretty impressive speedboat and were more than happy to take us out for a couple of blasts round the lighthouse and to Seal Island.

    Their breakfasts are fabulous - home made bread, fresh fruit, all manner of cooked options, meat, cheese, croissants...

    The location is perfect - close to the action but on a quiet street and not up one of St Ives' rather steep hills!

    The decor is modern and fresh - everything has been refurbished and is immaculate. (We stayed in room 4 - particularly spacious and attractive - and with sea views too.)

    What else can I say? Gill and Mike have created the sort of B & B that even the most picky customer (like me) should love.

    Boutique B&B with Traditional Hospitality & Charm!!!

    from

    We stayed at Treliska for a friends wedding, great location on a quiet street a few steps from the hustle and bustle of the town, the restaurants, bars and cafes in the harbour and the pretty white sands of the beach. Great first impressions, we were greeted with a very friendly face and some very good advice on where to park, eat, drink, visit and a helpful map.

    The whole place is stylish, very clean and recently refurbished, the rooms have been well designed with modern facilities, lots of luxuries and extremely comfortable. The crisp, white linen sheets were very welcoming after a 6 hour drive, delicious dinner and a few glasses of wine. (We ate in a restaurant called "Coast" on the harbour a must if you like fresh fish although delicious food would suit all tastes - great view as the sun sets too!!)

    The attention to detail and warm hospitality at Treliska left nothing to be desired, breakfast was amazing with lots to choose from - the English breakfast is truly scrumptious! My only complaint is that we only stayed one night and if it had been longer we may have had time for a ride in the speed boat! (previously mentioned in other reviews) Maybe next time, and their will be a next time, we highly recommend this little gem to all friends, family and trip advisor users!!

    This place is amazing!

    from

    Having chosen this B&B as a result of looking the Tripadviser web site, I felt obliged to write a review myself - although I did contemplate keeping it a secret for myself and filing it under 'Best Kept Secrets'!

    If you are thinking of visiting St Ives, this place is a must to stay. Welcoming and airy rooms with real stylish designer touches that wouldn't' look out of place in the Ritz... and this is a B&B! Being a keen diver, I have had the 'pleasure' of staying in many B&B's and expecting the norm, Treliska came as a breath of fresh air, shaking off the usual floral and dusty rooms with a shower in the cupboard - the type of which we seem to be happy to accept in this country... and pay good money for!

    Gill and Mike are great and give you all the local knowledge, pointing St. Ives rookies in the right direction and also putting themselves out to make your stay more enjoyable. Mike has an amazing speed boat in the harbour and if you speak to him nicely I am sure he would take you for a blast, as he did with us - 60mph across the bay!!!! and then a leisurely trip round some coves.

    Free broad band in the lounge was great, so I could keep in touch with work (I know, very sad) and also able to locate some great dive sites online, with the help of Mike.

    Breakfast was amazing with everything you can imagine on the menu, all cooked fresh. Thanks Mike and Gill, excellent accom that deserves credit - I will be back soon.

    Great Attention to Detail - A Perfect Spot

    from

    This is a perfect location for exploring St. Ives as it is only a 2 minute walk from the harbour.

    We stayed in Room #4 based upon a previous review and were very pleased with our choice! The room was very well appointed and renovated and decorated with great attention to detail. Comfy king-sized bed and the bathtub and bubble bath was a welcome treat after a long day of walking!

    Jill Adams was extremely friendly and helpful. She provided us with a street map of town and directed us to the municipal parking lot so that we could park and leave the car for the duration of our visit to this quaint seaside village. Breakfast was scrumptious and we really enjoyed the fruit compote. Once again, the decor and attention to detail was very much appreciated.

    It was very helpful to have access to the free broadband internet in the lounge. Treliska is a model for other bed and breakfast establishments to follow! We'll be back!

    Brilliant stay!

    from

    Stayed there for a week, what a breath of fresh air. No chintz, modern rooms with a designer touch, the bathroom in the room we stayed in was awsome. Gill and Mike made us feel at home, to top it off Mike has a great speedboat in the harbour which he took us out on. Breakfasts are to die for, the American pancakes and maple syrup were great. A must stay place.

    Style palace at B&B rates!!

    from

    Just had to offer a review of this wonderful guest house in the centre of St Ives.

    Location just couldn't be better - right in the middle of the shops and bars/restaurants, so no late-night hill-climbing for those that like to party.

    Rooms all beautifully presented, fixtures and fittings more associated with 5* hotels than small town guest houses (request room 4 if available - king-size bed, bay window, gorgeous en-suite!).

    Proprietors friendly and helpful, breakfast delicious, and as with everything else beautifully presented.

    Free broadband internet on a Mac in the lounge, which, in common with everywhere else in the place, is like a Habitat showroom.

    Just can't be faulted for the money. Website (try Google) doesn't exaggerate the money that the owners have spent on this place. Repay them by staying here, it deserves to be fully occupied 365 days a year!

As we walked back along this safe side of the barbed wire fence to their field, our frisky suitor even put his front legs up considering a potential jump to chase us.

So far we have found the book a good companion for this ...
