We had the most wonderful stay here. Everything was just perfection. The ladies who run the place were so helpful and nothing was too much. Always happy to recommend the best way to get anywhere and recommend local places of interest. The breakfast was divine - just wonderful. We loved sitting out on the terrace with a glass of something... More

First time for me to Cornwall so was really looking forward to it for a birthday treat and it did not disappoint. No small measure to this delightful boutique style hotel. Clean cut, airy and bright in its style makes for a Cafe Del Mar atmosphere. Situated in Carbis Bay with easy access to St.Ives either by walking (15mins) or... More

The staff are all excellent, service was efficient and friendly, comfortable bed and very nice breakfasts, what more could you want, we enjoyed a lovely stay.

Boskerris is lovely little boutique hotel with views over Carbis Bay. There are lovely walks in both directions along the coastline and St Ives is easily reachable by foot(25mins), car (10mins), train (5 mins). Service is personal and attentive without being intrusive. The best features are the beautiful terrace and the wonderful breakfast. The hotel only has a very small... More

Not the biggest double bedroom downstairs, with sea views to the right. However all was as it should be with the amenities...just a tad short on the White Company toiletries. No luck with obtaining a Dry Martini in the bar, there was no one there able to dispense the cocktail.... Dinner in the small restaurant was limited to a light,... More

Recently stayed here at the Boskerris Hotel, St Ives and what a joy it was. Beautifully presented, staff and settings. Location is spot on and so was the breakfast and atmosphere. Can't wait to return to this Hotel - there is no other option for my next visit to St Ives.

Everything was great from beginning to end. Boskerris is a beautiful hotel where the staff really care about their guests. Everything was spotlessly clean, the food delicious (the hotel uses local suppliers for most everything) and the location fantastic. Our room was very comfortable (lovely, big bed) and offered a beautiful sea view. The beach is only three minutes away... More

We recently spent a lovely one night stay at the Boskerris. It was perfect. The bathrooms are so clean they shine. The hotel is beautifully furnished, the atmosphere relaxed, the staff very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was wonderful. I recommend it most highly.

We stayed for 2 nights in September and this is one of the best small hotels / B & B's that we have stayed in. Stunning views, spotlessly clean, beautifully designed and the staff were very helpful and made us feel so welcome. The outside deck overlooks Carbis Bay and they are located within a five min walk to the... More
