My friend and I had travelled down to St. Ives for the first time. We booked a twin room at the mustard tree as the reviews on the whole were excellent. The B&B owners were warm, friendly and welcoming and happy to collect you from the station on arrival. The house is located in a quiet area, it does back... More

Anne and John are a very friendly couple, peaceful, helpful and attentive to their differing guests needs. We had to go down to Carbis Bay for a funeral and booked this B&B last minute, we stayed 3 nights. We have no hesitation in recommending this guest house to anyone. Anne and John are very informative on their area and will... More

I stayed here for prayer and contemplation. I did not know it was a Christian B&B when I booked but from the reviews. All the better for me. Anne and John are very hospitable. They are friendly but also respect clients privacy, they never impose. I stayed in room 6 which was perfect, a double bed, tv, wifi, en suite... More

My friends and I stayed three nights at the Mustard Tree and found the room, food, and conditions just right. Anne was very helpful with directions to the coastal trail, the bus stop is quite convenient, and we appreciated the availability of a computer for guests. Our room was simply and tastefully equipped, and the grounds and garden added a... More

We were a small group of cyclists on a tour of Cornwall who enjoyed a lovely stopover here. The accommodation exceeded expectations in every way- lovely comfy, clean rooms and super breakfast. The owners were very friendly and helpful, including proving a very secure place for our bikes. Of the 4 Cornwall B and Bs we stayed in this trip... More

Breakfast was lovely, I had cooked breakfast on the first morning which was locally sourced produce and on the second morning they had a special on which was fish (can't remember what sort) in...

To be honest, we didn't know what to expect since pictures can be deceiving sometimes. So when we got there, we were pleasantly surprised. It has got that beach house vibe I love so much, and the rooms look like it came straight from an IKEA catalogue. The room size is on the small side, but at least it is... More

We recently stayed here for one night. The B+B felt very homely and very welcoming. Some B+Bs feel more like hotels , this was the opposite and as such there was a feeling you were in someones home. We were met by Ann who gave us a warm welcome and was always approachable and enthusiastic. The room had a great... More
