Historical Traveler Reviews Boskerris Hotel St Ives
We had a fabulous week in Carbis Bay staying at the Boskerris. The hotel is perfectly positioned for St Ives via the lovely coastal walk or the train that is a 2 minute walk from the hotel. The owners are really warm and enthusiastic and are transforming the Boskerris into something very special. All of the public rooms and downstairs bedrooms are done with just the upstairs bedrooms to complete over the winter. Don't be put off! We had one of the old bedrooms facing the ocean and they are bright and clean and all you really need. Once you see the view from your room you will be smitten. The full English breakfast is to die for. Quality ingredients beautifully cooked. We will definitely go back.
What a fab. place
Fabulous place, fabulous owners, fabulous rooms and views and fabulous breakfasts and dinners.
Try it this year before you are too late.
Nice but a little disappointing
My wife and I stayed 3 nights at the Boskerris.
It's nice, away from all the crowds, located a short train ride (station is at the bottom of the hill) or a 40 minute walk to St. Ives.
The lobby is very nice, as is the lounge and deck. Stunning view of the ocean. Service is excellent here - and so is the food.
We found our room a little disappointing. After the stunning lounge and deck, it was like entering a different hotel. It could definitely use some new wallpaper and carpet. The heated towel rack didn't work, there was a bug problem and the windows wouldn't have hurt from a little cleaning. Holes in the back of the doors where there used to be hooks. No sign of the DVD player or Plasma screen one other reviewer wrote about (we didn't watch TV anyway but did want to point out that not all the rooms are the same - and we did pay for an ocean view room).
Breakfast each morning was superb...but if I were to return I would try somewhere else. If I'm going to pay that much for a room I might as well.
Champagne with a view
I stayed in the Boskerris with a friend in June and I must say we had an absolute fantastic time - the views from our room were absolutely gorgeous - good weather as well with blue skies and lots and lots of sun.
The owners did everything to make our stay a perfect holiday, they were really terrific and organised everything for us and you just cant beat having champagne in the evening sun on their terrace!
Definitely the best hotel we stayed at in Cornwall and beyond! Do not miss it if you ever get to Carbis Bay, St Ives is only ca 20 min by foot or few min by train, also taxis not too expensive with the most friendly taxidrivers in the world! Thanks again to everyone at the Boskerris!
Boskerris Hotel,St Ives
We've just returned from a short break at this very comfortable and very stylish hotel.
The hotel is actually in Carbis bay,of which there are spectacular views from the hotel's decking area.St Ives is just a 2 minute train ride or bracing 25 minute walk on the coastal path away.
Our room was one of the garden rooms with great views of the bay.It was very comfortable and ,as was obvious when you entered it,very smartly decorated and very well appointed,plasma screen TV,dvd player,glass sink etc.
The public areas were like the room, smart and comfortable.The owners couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.We wouldn't hesitate in returning to and recommending this hotel very highly.
Well worth a visit
I stayed at the Boskerris Hotel after being booked in by my employer, I regularly stay at hotels throughout england and can honestly say that this hotel is one of the best I have come across.
The rooms are beautifully decorated with stunning sea views, the food is second to none and the service and attitude of staff cannot be matched for warmth & hospitality.
If you are visiting cornwall don't overlook this hotel when considering your accomodation, quite simply its leagues ahead of many of the large name hotels in both luxury & location......
A superb welcome
A wonderful welcome, warm & sincere.
The room was spotless, clean, tidy and with a relaxing smell.
Food was superb, well cooked & presented
Staff were warm, helpful and genuinely interested
in making our time there unforgetable.
We'll be back and we'd recommend the hotel very strongly.
Enjoyed a magical holiday, with excellent accommodation. Spectacular views from the deck and well, what can I say about the cuisine, scrumptious. Will definitely visit again. We were made to feel so welcome.
Well done to Marianne, Jono, Annie and George and Good Luck for the future.
Boskerris Hotel... a real gem !
A real gem ! superb !! excellent breakfast and what a view from the decking ! Family run and so friendly.. A real find ! 35 mile ocean views. Just out of the hustle of St Ives.. very tranquil and relaxing... Thanks Annie, George, Marianne and Jono.....
Good hotel in tranquil setting
My husband and I visited the Boskerris hotel in late July early August of this year and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel has a lovely atmosphere and the staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful if they tried. All the public areas were beutifully decorated and clean and the terrace, where you can enjoy a drink, has wonderful views across the bay. The breakfasts were delicious and healthy as you can choose to have food grilled rather than fried. The location is ideal as you are near enough to St Ives to get in easily but far enough away to escape the noise of seagulls and crowds. The only piece of advice I would give is ask for a room at the top of the hotel rather than on the bottom floor. We had a room with a sea view on the bottom floor but because the terrace was directly above us there was some noise (scraping chairs etc which echoed) it didn't bother us but it might if you were a light sleeper!

... we headed to the Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden. This was impressive to see and the sculptures were cleverly displayed in and amongst the flowers and trees. Rose enjoyed exploring in the garden and was particularly fascinated by Barbara Hepworth's old studio. We then headed back into the town but it had become very busy with tourists, so we decided to head back to the train to continue our day elsewhere. The Lizard was ...
... when we returned so we decided to visit Turo by train. We caught the train from Saint Austell at 1015 and arrived in Turo twenty minutes later. Turo has an impressive cathedral although the rest of the town is rather unremarkable. However, it was a good place to have a quiet day whilst Christine recovered. By the afternoon she was feeling much better and we all had an early night ready to have bigger day ...
... here in Tintagel, especially at The Four Winds B&B - a perfect spot for a few days to recharge the batteries.From Tintagel we set the SatNav for St Ives. Wow! The traffic was chaotic. Got to St Ives and it was a very pretty little town but hugely busy. We eventually managed to get parking then did a quick tour of the town. It was a beautiful day and the English were making the most of ...
... the hill. We were going to Tintagel Castle but decided to head south to St Agnes on the Hawkin's recommendation and it was very cute. Old granite buildings and a beautiful beach. Lunch there at a bakery then headed for home. Bit of a break while we watched the end of the stage of the Tour then onto the train to shop and dine in St Ives. We bought clothes and shoes and ...
... was an old tin and copper mine which operated from 1840 till 1930. Jill and I went through the existing parts while the boys went for a walk. It was so interesting. Jill and I looked down a well and shuddered at the depth of it. Turns out it was only a small fraction of the depth. The mine extended down 600 metres and then out under the sea for nearly 1600 metres. It followed the granite seam in which was found the metals. There was 4% yield from tin and up ...
