The Green Apple is clean, friendly and a pleasure to stay at. Breakfast was toast and cereals in a wonderfully decorated breakfast room. And this was one of the few places we looked at; that had a single room available, and it was as good as the doubles.

Very good bed and breakfast, and for its location in St Ives / Carbis Bay Area, good value for money. The room we stayed in, Cartland 3, was clean, functional and decorated in a 'funky' modern style. Our en suite bathroom was handy, but a note that the shower suffered from poor water pressure. The breakfast room offered a nice... More

We stayed here whilst visiting st ives for a friend's wedding. The owners were extremely welcoming and accommodating. The b&b had a lovely home from home feel about it. Breakfast was simple, easy and tasty.

We stayed at Green Apple three nights. Hosts were very friendly, polite and helpful. Breafasts were delicious with sight at the ocean - we were in March as only one guests and breakfats were prepared specialy for us. As it was our first time in Cornwall we weren't concentrated only on St Ives but also on many other places and... More

We had three full days in Cornwall for our two nights stay here by arriving at 8.30am off the sleeper train from London. Green Apple is a ten-minute, short but steep, walk up from Carbis Bay station. There was no difficulty about leaving our cases until our room (Honeycrisp) was ready later in the day. The walk to St Ives... More

I stayed at the Green Apple for 3 nights at the beginning of June. It really was a wonderful place to stay. Situated just outside St Ives, approx. 5 minute train journey away/30 minute walk, I thought this was perfect as I found it nice to stay away from the busier main town but close enough that travelling into St...

We stayed in the green apple for a single night at the beginning of June to explore the surrounding area of St. Ives. Let me start with the positives, the b&b is in a good location not to far from the beach and about 20-30 mins walk from the centre of St. Ives. There is also a shop a few... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you left a little disappointed. I would like to try and address the issues you have raised. I have just checked the shower and it seems to be running fine now. It is a mains shower and a pressure is usually fairly good. There are two parts to turning it on, one... More

This is a very pretty shabby chic style guest house and I loved all the little details that make good guest houses such fun. The beds were very comfy and the bathroom was fine. It was spacious enough with all the things you need like mirror, hair dryer and even cute little marshmallows to go with your hot drink! I... More

Just come back from here after a six night stay. Felt like home from home. Room very clean and welcoming. Stayed in the Pacific Rose room (twin room) which was bigger than some of the other rooms. Slept well as beds very comfy. Minor gripes - the bathroom door doesn't shut right, no biggie but you might want to get... More

we stayed here a couple of weeks ago, and were both blown away. For £60 a night at the very beginning of the peak season, we were over the moon at the quality of the room, the friendliness of Jess and the location aswell. situated out of the centre of St Ives is far from inconvenient and the B+B is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Offering great value for money in a great location! The bed & breakfast has recently undergone an upgrade to create a lovely Cornish treat. We offer a continental buffet breakfast, WI-FI, sea views, parking and a range of rooms including family rooms. We also offer a guest lounge & small garden. We now have one room in which we allow dogs. This room has a private entrance, so you can easily access the outside and don't have to worry about affecting any other guests. There is a park the other side of the road from us. We allow up to 2 dogs and our dog friendly room can sleep up to 4 people.St Ives town centre only a 5 minute bus trip away or a 25 minute walk. A short walk down the hill and you are on the stunning Carbis Bay beach. We are also within easy access of the train station and the nearest bus stop is just across the road. We are delighted to inform you that the bed & breakfast came into new ownership in early 2013. ... more   less
