My Husband and I stayed here one night on our way to another destination. We are not usually bed and breakfast lovers tending to book hotels with luxury facilities. We were very impressed with the whole set up here. Our host was lovely and very informative about the area and local attractions. Our room was lovely all the facilities we... More

I was a little dubious when my partner said she had booked a B&B for us, and how wrong was I. This was a fabulous choice. Great location and very very nice property. Love the decor and room was perfect and spotless. Host was spot on for me so would highly recommend this place!

This is an absolutely superb bed and breakfast place that's really close to Carbis Bay beach. The continental breakfast is ample and of good quality - the mini pastries and croissants are fresh every day and are delicious. The owners are very helpful and friendly and nothing was a problem for them. They provided me with fruit teas and decaff... More

Had courtland room 1. Nice and clean and well equipped. Shower slightly on the small side but not the end of the world. On the main bus route but also within walking distance of the town. Breakfast room was pretty although we didn't eat there. Very nice budget b&b. would stay again happily.

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

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
