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

Me and my partner stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014. Lynn and Graham were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was amazing, full English and a bar full of crossiants, fruit and cereals! The bedroom and ensuite were spotless. Will definitely visit again.

We had a fantastic time. The room was spotless, the breakfast was tasty and this b&b is a walk away from great beaches and the town. We will be staying here again! The proprietors were lovely and welcoming. There is space to park your car. Perfect break!

We enjoyed our visit to Carlill in St Ives. The only thing that I would count as a negative isn't the proprietor's fault. It is a long steep walk back from the town to the B&B and some prospective clients might find this to be an issue. We couldn't see any sign of public transport that would have helped make... More

Good price, great location and on site PARKING! (Which in St Ives is an important consideration!) Proprietor was very friendly and lovely - gave us great restaurant suggestions. Five minutes into town by foot. Room a bit small, but fine for us, especially given the price. Bathroom was clean and large and well-lit.

Everything was fabulous from the comfort & cleanliness of our room to the delicious breakfast. The location was superb, just a few minutes’ walk into the town and the gorgeous beaches. The car park is right in front of the house & the landlady will always make sure that you have a space. Hope to return next year. Thank you
