My husband, 9 year old son and I stayed here at the beginning of August 2014. The B&B was lovely and clean, bright and airy. We stayed in the front room with a double bed and separate single. The room was of adequate size, the on-suite a little tight but the power shower made up for the tight fit! A... More

Perfect. Liz and Richard are relators with an instinctive understanding of what you need. Immaculate, comfortable beds, dust free, airy, harmonious room. Hot spacious shower. Delicious breakfast. Sea view, walk to town 10 mins. There is nothing to fault about this bed and breakfast. What a find! Recommend to all.

Great facilities, clean and tidy, warm friendly welcome and a legendary breakfast, what's not to like :) I have stayed here on numerous occasions and can honestly say it's my favourite place in St Ives. 10/10

I visit St Ives around 4-5 times a year for work and have stayed in a nunber of different hotels/B&Bs and Chy Conyn is by far the best experience so far. A great location (less than 5 minutes walk to the harbour), very accomodating hosts, lovely rooms and a wonderful breakfast. I will be staying here on all my work... More

Stayed here early summer 2013. Second time at the B&B, first time since Richard and Lizzie have been owners. Richard and Lizzie are really friendly, welcoming and helpful hosts. I would recommend the top room as you get a sea view, and it's a really beautiful room. This B&B is well located for Porthmeor beach and the Tate. I would... More

We stayed at Chy Conyn for 2 days in late September on a quick visit to Cornwall. The accommodations were charming, clean and comfortable and the breakfasts delicious. Hosts Richard and Lizzie were so friendly and welcoming, and Richard gave us excellent advice on the best way to make the most of an all too short visit to Cornwall.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here and loved it. St Ives is a very pretty little town with great beaches and this bed and breakfast is perfect for exploring it. Its not far to walk to town. The room was big and spotless clean and the owners were friendly. The breakfast was also great.I would defiantly stay here again.

The Chy Conyn is a great place to stay, if you want to spend some wonderful time in St. Ives. The rooms are very clean and absolutely suitable. It's about a 5-10 min. walk to the harbour/beach (depending on how quick you walk). Richard (one of the owners) cooks breakfast himself and it was always very good. Both the owners... More

Have not stayed in that many B&Bs but have to say this was definitely the easiest and nicest B&B I've stayed in! Perfect location up the road from the main beach. The owner Richard is really nice, friendly, easy-going and helpful. The bedroom and shower/toilet room are nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. I think the fact that its a such... More

We were in Cornwall back in June during the infamous cold English summer but we didn't really give much thought of how the weather was going to be like because Sigur Ros was performing in Eden Project that weekend - so it was a must trip! We had to make sure that the accommodation and restaurants we would be visiting... More
