My friend and I spent a few days here and felt we made a good choice. Although uphill, where isn't in St Ives.? Our room wasn't huge but big enough and the beds were very comfortable. We had an ensuite, which was good and everything was spotlessly clean. Lynn and Graham were very friendly and welcoming. In the morning we... More

We had a last minute opportunity to visit St Ives for a brief two night stay and based on Tripadvisor reviews, we chose the Carlill Guest House. We were aware it was up the hill so took a cab from the train station and it was a good thing we did because it would have been quite a hike with... More

Lynne and her partner were very welcoming, Lynne always asked about your day at breakfast and was a good and helpful host. She provided me with information... More

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
