Me my partner and my 6 year old daughter stayed here for 2 nights because we had a wedding to go to at the Carbis bay hotel and we loved the place. It was 5 mins from the beach and the location of the wedding. Mandy and Gary made us feel so welcome and my 6 year old daughter loved... More

My partner treated me to a three night break in March staying at the Thurlestone as a birthday treat and we were absolutely delighted with our experience.After the warmest of welcomes nothing was too much trouble for Mandy and Gary and they treatedus more as friends than guests.We would certainly stay there again and recommend it to one and all!

My partner and I , plus our two teenage children, was here for 3 nights in August 2013 and nothing much impresses a 15 year old girl and boy, but both of them said they loved it here, called it cool and asked if we could come back there sometime. The rooms were clean, nicely furnished, with a homely feel... More

We've stayed here twice now. Once was at very short notice and Mandy and Gary accommodated us without problems. Rooms are to a high standard, clean, well looked after. Breakfast excellent. A bit on the pricey side and parking limited, but we would certainly return because of all the pluses. By the way, very thick granite walls and double glazed... More

Lovely B&B, Mandy and Gary were great hosts. We had a sea view room which was very nice and comfortable. The breakfasts were brilliant . We will be recommending the Thurlestone to all our friends and family. There are plenty of trains and busses to get you around, but walking is best with some amazing views. Thanks again.

Fantastic hosts. Immaculately clean. Superb breakfasts.(I would recommend the eggs benedict.) can't rate it highly enough. The only downside is that the walk to carbis bay beach is via an almost vertical hill. But didn't detract from a fabulous break. Will return!

What can I say? Amazing hosts, very welcoming as soon as we arrived. Breakfast was lovely and the bar was a great idea as we normally had a couple of drinks before heading out to st Ives for dinner. Would not hesitate to book and visit again. Thx Mandy and Gary.

We had a great week in Carbis Bay/St Ives thanks to the warm welcome we received from Mandy and Gary. The food was great with plenty to chose from (Full English, Continental, Cereal, Scrambled Eggs etc) We took the coastal path located across the road from the Guest House on several occasion and the views were amazing! We definitely recommend... More

So welcoming and friendly hosts, lovely guest house, excellent bedding, yummy breakfast with a large choice (full English or a part of it, smoked salmon, several kinds of toasts, ...), free parking in front of the house, good insulation, ideal quiet situation just outside St-Ives, definitely a place to recommend !
