“Wonderful Experiece”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We arrived here recently from a long journey to be greeted by Michael & Gill with the most wonderful cream tea, cake and rock cakes. Simply delicious. You could not ask for nicer people to be staying with. Michael & Gill make you feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble for them. The breakfasts are absolutely wonderful, the black pudding is simply fantastic as is the scrambled eggs (made with cream) and smoked salmon (best we've ever tasted). The rooms are absolutely immaculate with crisp egyptian sheets, the king size bed was so big we completely lost each other for the whole night, and the smell of the towels is just amazing!! Gill and Michael were extremely helpful with their wonderful knowledge of St. Ives, even down to where to buy the best fudge! We will definitely be returning to this wonderful establishment, it is highly recommended - a simply wonderful place to stay.

We stayed here for three nights in March in the room with the most amazing view over Porthmeor Beach - even the bathroom has a view of the sea! Mike greeted us after our long journey with a tea tray and the most delicious cream tea - the home-made scones and jam were the best I've tasted. Breakfasts were everything you could wish for - in fact after such a great breakfast - lunch was not an option! An excellent place to stay and explore St Ives. Thank you Mike and Gill.

Room Tip: The room with the sea view - room 3 is amazing.

Just spent two nights at Ten Ocean View - had the most wonderful view over Porthmeor Beach from our room. Gill and Mike the owners were very friendly and extremely helpful. Breakfasts were wonderful, with a selection of cereals, a bowl of fresh fruit salad, porridge, full English and a variety of other egg dishes, plus vegeterian- everything home baked by Mike, including breads, cakes and jams. Hope to return again before too long. Thanks Gill and Mike for a wonderful stay. Diane and Dave

Had a lovely stay at Ten Ocean View, our room had a fabulous view or Porthmeor beach, the owners were incredibly helpful and the breakfasts as good as you could find anywhere. We will definitely be back.

well what can I say, the best b and b in St Ives! Mike's home baked bread and cakes, are a treat, a warm friendly welcome, and nothing is too much trouble. A great start to our Christmas break, and will not hesitate to go back on our next trip in May. Mike and Gill thank you for a lovely stay

Room Tip: we always have the room at the top of the house, great view, and lovely and quiet.

Just got back from a really lovely three night stay with Mike and Gill and cannot recommend this gorgeous B&B highly enough... it is the second time we have stayed with this warm and friendly couple and everything that has been said in previous reviews holds true! In particular I feel I just have to mention a few things that really stand out, firstly, the fabulous home baked breads and cakes, the smell of which you are greeted with at various times throughout the day, especially at breakfast, Mike is a retired Master Baker and you will not find a scone, rock bun or loaf of bread that compares to his, truly wonderful! Secondly the breakfasts, fresh fruit salad, fresh baked breads, porridge, full english to name a few, I had the full english this morning and it was delicious! Third has to be the absolute cleanliness of the whole place, everywhere smelled fresh with not a spot of dust, bedlinen, towels and toiletries of the highest quality. Next must come the location and views, you cannot find a better spot, to look out over St.Ives and a beautiful beach (with surfers) each morning when you wake up (if you have the room with bay window and sea view ) or whilst having breakfast , it is a great start to the day. Last but by no means least, Mike & Gill are just lovely hosts, their hospitality is very special and nothing is too much trouble for them, it was a pleasure to be invited to share a glass of champagne and nibbles with them, some fellow guests and friends of theirs last night, a great start to the New Years celebrations, thank you both! To conclude, we have stayed in many top hotels around the world (and a few other B&B's in St.Ives) but nothing can compare to this special little place, well done Mike & Gill, keep up the good work, see you again soon, Deborah & Andrew

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely but the room at the front (I think its room 3) with the bay window and sea...

We visited in June 2012 when my wife was heavily pregnant and were very impressed with the friendliness, warmth, rooms, breakfast and location. Just a short walk down the hill about 7 mins to the centre of town with plenty of buses and taxis going the other way if you want to avoid the hill back. The welcome from Mike and Gill was very warm and they could not do enough for us particularly concerning my wife's condition. They even drove us to a restaurant in town one night when it was raining heavily, Mike kindly interrupted his Euro 2012 viewing in the process. A great place that we would highly recommend.
