    Historical Traveler Reviews Boskerris Hotel St Ives

    Almost perfect!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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......

    Excellent .................

    A superb welcome

    from

    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.

    Magical

    from

    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 !

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    ... Contrary to speculation, I have read all your comments and found them entertaining and motivating. More importantly, thank you to all who supported us, in every sense of the word. We have raised over £11,000 for The Emma Maltby Memorial Fund. That money will make a difference for children suffering from cancer in the Leeds area. For Rob and me, it's been a great adventure. One we will never forget. Thank you for being a part of it. Go well. ...

We whipped out our rods and feathers and caught half a dozen good sized mackeral in a few minutes. We plan to barbecue them at Lantic bay tomorrow evening.

Many is the time when I have gazed out of a train window or looked down from an aircraft at some distant hills and wondered. I've wondered what lies beyond those hills and wanted to don my boots and explore. Now I've done it and loved it. And it does need to be long distance. There is no feeling quite ...

We got to visit Agatha Christie's Natural Trust holiday home - Greenway in Brixham, Devon. It provided an extraordinary look into the private holiday home of this famous author - the house is set in beautiful grounds on the banks of the River ...
