We stayed here in May 2013, this was the second time we have stayed at this B&B, The 1st time we stayed in room Number 8, The room was fantastic, clean, spacious and quiet. This second time we were put on the second floor, the room was a lot smaller - no room to even put your suit cases anywhere,... More

Recently stayed in the Grey Mullet. Have been staying here for a number of years and have seen it decline each time. When the breakfast room was revamped I thought this would be the start of major refurbishment but sadly no. The location is fantastic, just a stones throw from the harbour & shopping streets and a short way from... More

Really grubby. You can tell the owner doesn't live there - nobody takes any pride in the place. Lumpy old mattress too. Breakfast was clearly budget products - particularly the sausages. Corners cut everywhere. Didn't like the location - too busy for us. Parking was miles away and up hill. Nobody around to advise you of the best way to... More

This was our 2nd trip to the Grey Mullet after first staying here in 2009, this time as previously we stayed in the cottage apartment, which is at the rear of the guesthouse. Firstly location is fantastic as the accommodation is right behind the harbor, with views over the beach, this however was the only positive feature. During our first... More

Stayed here two years ago and had some reservations about cleanliness but location made up for it.This time - still dubious housekeeping in both public areas and room, but one particular incident said it all. Only having a small basin in the cupboard (ensuite) it was difficult for us to wash the mugs for tea and coffee.This led to one... More

Just around the corner from the post office, this place is in the heart of St Ives. My room was on the ground floor facing the street and really needed a spruce up. The ensuite was a toilet and shower in a cupboard that would have been cramped in a youth hostel. Make sure you remember to close the curtains... More

This was our fourth stay at the Grey Mullet, Rachel, Jane and Anita very welcoming. Had room 4 with a lovely sea view. A great breakfast every morning, even for my fussy daughters! The location is great, right opposite the harbour and a few minutes walk to the other beaches. Parked in the Island Car Park which is closer than... More

Just returned from a weekend in St. Ives. Ten of us stayed at the Grey Mullet and Jane was on hand to cook lovely breakfast each day.. The weather was very cold but the welcome was very warm. We will return same time next year. Excellent thanks

My husband and I have stayed at The Grey Mullet twice now and are looking to return in the near future - we wouldn't stay anywhere other than here when visiting St. Ives. The location is perfect, the staff very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is lovely; very filling and everything you could want for your breakfast is there.... More
