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 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.
