A great little hotel with only 17 rooms and a chance to get that personal service from the staff and management. An easy one stop on the local train to St Ives. An unexpected bonus is the restaurant and chef. This was by far the best restaurant we enjoyed anywhere in Cornwall. Breakfasts are sumptuous and the evening meal offerings,... More

This was our second visit to the Boskerris and was equally enjoyable as our first, two years ago. On arrival, my wife and I were made to feel most welcome by the owner and staff. They are all very friendly and always on-hand to help. The location is ideal for exploring St Ives and West Cornwall. The train station is... More

I chose Boskerris House due to reading reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. In fact this was the best accommodation I chose in my four weeks travelling in Europe. This Boutique Hotel has stunning views of the sea and so that you can really enjoy the vista, a large deck with comfortable chairs placed facing the view. On... More

My wife and I were booked into this hotel for 3 nights as we had a wedding nearby. Nice lounge, good bar, and a lovely terrace/balcony, nice bedroom with good standard of bed linen. Views from hotel and our room were stunning. All the staff were really friendly and helpful. It's a little pricey (but then I don't know the... More

A lovely, warm welcome, beautiful views across Carbis Bay and great breakfasts. The walk into St Ives is a delight. Would highly recommend doing a guided walk with Steve Crammay from Explore in Cornwall (find him at http://www.exploreincornwall.co.uk/ ) for anyone wanting to find out a bit more about ecology, wildlife and mining

The Boskerris is in a beautiful location above Carbis Bay, so much quieter than St Ives. It is well connected by train and if needed a taxi into town is not expensive. The best feature of the hotel is the beautiful terrace with views on the bay: comfortable and sunny is a perfect place to chill and have a glass... More

St Ives was high on Mrs " Wishlist" so as at St Austell came over to here for a bonus weekend, and SOOOOOOO glad we did. Gorgeous location overlooking Carbis Bay, delightful staff, magnificent breakfasts and so caring from all the staff.......We booked last October for mid June and apart from getting caught out by the dodgy clifftop walk, everything...

We have returned to the Boskerris on a number of occasion...I guess that says it all !! :-) They have a great model for service and hospitality and it remains consistent, year after year. It is one thing to set high standards, but to deliver against them consistently is a harder task. The Boskerris admirably meets that challenge. The rooms... More

This place is a real haven for relaxing. On arrival we were met by Lesley who was so sincerely friendly and showed us round, informed us of the area, places to visit, the restaurant and bar times, the wifi and showed us our room. I have never had such a wonderful greeting in a hotel before. The room was beautiful... More
