We decided to escape our normal busy lives and visit St Ives for 4 nights. My friend chose the Carlill. It was a long time since either of us had been to St Ives so we were a bit unsure of location. We were travelling by train & found the guesthouse easily at the top of a fairly steep hill.... More

Decided to book a weekend away and would not try anywhere else other than Carlill. Stayed at the hotel in summer and knew I would be booking to go back there. Beautiful big room with amazing views. Room once again spotless and comfortable. Lynne's breakfast sets us for the day and she's always happy to make whatever you want. Roll... More

This is our 2nd visit to the Carlill and similar to last year, in the last week in October. We arrived late afternoon and we were made very welcome by Lynne and she soon had us settled in. Our room was very comfortable, spacious and spotlessly clean and as the Carlill is located on the top of Porthminster Terrace there... More

Stayed here in September, booked four rooms including room 2. Lynne & Graham were good hosts, friendly & helpful. This was the best breakfast we have ever enjoyed whilst on holiday. There was a huge variety to choose from & the fresh fruit was superb. One of our party came from America, her first time in England, she really enjoyed... More

We stayed in St Ives for three nights but due to change in dates etc we only had our first B&B (the Sea breeze) for the first night and had to find another for the remaining two nights. Looking online, and also taking in the the Tripadvisor reviews, we chose to book the '4 star Carlill' in advance. We booked... More

We stayed in the Carlill for 4 nights after a 400 mile trip on our motor bike. We stayed in Room 2, a large room with a beautiful , comfortable king size bed and a wonderful sea view from the big bay window. Graham and Lynn made us feel welcome. The breakfast was delicious. Croissants, Greek yogurt and fresh fruit... More

Stayed here for a week in July, owners were lovely and couldn't make us more welcome. Hotel was lovely, bedroom large and well equipped and always lovely and clean! Cooked breakfast was great! Lots of fresh fruits and cereal to choose from and could order a full English or something lighter if preferred! Would highly recommend the full English though!... More
