We stayed at Coast for two nights during a tour of Devon and Cornwall from Australia in October 2015. Given the rave reviews of the Bean Inn, we also pre-booked dinner both nights prior to our arrival. The B&B was easy to find, being on the main road into St Ives from the A30, with a few parking spots right... More

We did choose this place because of the vegetarian restuarant Beans Inn attached. It was a cute little bed and breakfast, we felt at home from the beginning. The room was small but had a great view. We very much liked the dinners at the restaurant. Great taste and flavours from all around the world. The standard breakfast was okay... More

I felt really at home at Coast. The decor is beautiful - natural wood and nature themed art by local artist Katrina Slack. The tasteful background music adds to the ambience. Paula made my partner and me feel really welcome. Sea Campion on the top floor has a spectacular panoramic view of St Ives Bay. There is a great choice... More

First the positives- great location just out of St Ives. Excellent parking. Incredible sea view from our room - Sea Campion. However this B&B has a strange business model and one which I did not like. The owners are non residents - you are given a code for the key safe and a message saying any problems ring Gail. The...

I stayed at Coast upon a recommendation from a close friend recently. Wow! I love Cornwall but have always found those 'chain' B&B's' very cold and sterile. Had fantastic communications from Coast during the booking process and we had the ground floor room next to the restaurant which is also the place where breakfast was served. Coast is fantastic if...

We booked this guest house after reading the reviews on trip advisor and viewing the establishments website. We were looking forward to staying at a real vegetarian / vegan guest house for our wedding anniversary and birthday celebration feeling that because The Coast specialised as such it would be a good choice. We couldn't have been more disappointed! We were... More

To be fair I can't blame the b & b for the weather but unfortunately it didn't help. Our room was really small and the window was completely blocked by a large tree. Also, the toilet seemed to have been converted from a wardrobe so is extremely small, only inches from the bed and had only a poorly fitted wooden... More

I returned to Coast having visited around 7 years previously. My small but perfectly formed room was an excellent base for a break to go walk, paint and explore St Ives. It's a nice stroll into the town, and walkable back up the hill but there's also a bus stop across the road. Lovely friendly owners, tasty food (I'm not... More

A great find, this B&B was refreshing with its individually designed rooms. We stayed in the red field poppy, which was fresh and quaint. A little on the small side for a couple but this was explained to us before booking. All the staff were so helpful and friendly. The breakfast' s were more than enough and every need catered...

Had a wonderful couple of days stay at Coast. Room cosy, clean and modern. Staff friendly and helpful. Lovely vegetarian food for dinner and breakfast. Convenient location for exploration of the delights of Cornwall. Would definitely stay there again.
