Chy Conyn Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #23 of 29 Specialty Lodging in St Ives
Reviewed September 13, 2013

The Chy Conyn is a great place to stay, if you want to spend some wonderful time in St. Ives. The rooms are very clean and absolutely suitable. It's about a 5-10 min. walk to the harbour/beach (depending on how quick you walk). Richard (one of the owners) cooks breakfast himself and it was always very good. Both the owners are very friendly and I would recommend this B&B to all of my friends. I would also go back any time and probably will next year.

Have not stayed in that many B&Bs but have to say this was definitely the easiest and nicest B&B I've stayed in! Perfect location up the road from the main beach. The owner Richard is really nice, friendly, easy-going and helpful. The bedroom and shower/toilet room are nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. I think the fact that its a such a small B&B really gives it a nice personal feel, and makes it nice and quiet. A no hassle B&B. Excellent breakfasts! :)

We were in Cornwall back in June during the infamous cold English summer but we didn't really give much thought of how the weather was going to be like because Sigur Ros was performing in Eden Project that weekend - so it was a must trip! We had to make sure that the accommodation and restaurants we would be visiting would be well worth the visit and to make up for the weather, so my boyfriend did the well earned research and viola! In all the dampness, we found the perfect little B&B and a warm welcome.

Richard and Lizzie are the owner of the B&B. They are very helpful with recommendations and directions and was always up for a laugh. They also made sure that we were fed well and took the trouble to make sure we get to places we needed to be. They are absolutely friendly but at the same time, they won't be breaching your need for privacy.

The cleanliness of the rooms are also very satisfactory. We had a double room - the sheets, duvet are clean. Extra pillow was provided, shampoos, cleaner comes in to do the room, clean towels, shower was great - shampoos, shower gels and the likes are all provided. There's various types or tea and coffee and biscuits and hot chocs sachets for complimentary in the room. Hairdryers, ironing board (ask Richard for it) are all there. Breakfast was really good! Richard and Lizzie impresses with their breakfast and they did a really good job! warm plate, eggs of your choice - the usual, variety of options for juice and cereals. All you need for a good start of a day!

The would be the noisy seagulls but then again.. it is Cornwall.

All in all - I absolutely recommend this B&B and I wouldn't think twice to come again even if it's just to visit Richard and Lizzie!

Oh.. and the location is really good too!!

Room Tip: trip advisor reviews are actually trustworthy!

I've just returned from a long weekend in St Ives with 2 friends staying at Chy Conyn. We all agreed what a wonderful B&B it turned out to be. I know St Ives very well but knew nothing of Chy Conyn, but what a find! We stayed in the room for 3 at it was great, lovely attention to detail and spotlessly clean. Lizzie could not have been any more helpful, and Richard was exactly the same when he russled up our breakfasts (which were very good)! We also enjoyed sitting in the small front garden soaking up the sun and drinking our g&ts!! I will definitely be going back!!

We stayed for two nights and everything was excellent. Very clean,comfortable,friendly, and also very convenient. Breakfast was very good, with lots of choice. We have booked again in October as it is one of the best places to stay in St. Ives. The four stars are well deserved, Richard and Lizzie are really helpful and accommodating.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

My husband and I booked Chy Conyn for a 2 night break. It was to just get away for a few nights in the lovely St Ives and relax. We are both so pleased we booked with Chy Conyn as that is exactly what it was - lovely and relaxing!
Richard and Lizzie were so very welcoming and couldn't do enough to ensure we were happy. Every time we happen to see them we had a great chat, they are such lovely people to get on with! They shared their knowledge of the local area, so we could make the most of our visit.
At no time we're they intrusive or made us feel uncomfortable, in fact, they made you feel like you were at home!
The room was spotless and very comfy beds/pillows - which is often hard to find!
Bathroom was spacious and had a spa bath, which was lovely to unwind in after walking around the town!
There were lots of choices for breakfast and the quantity was overwhelming! It was all very fresh and beautifully cooked!
The price was also very competitive for peak session.

I can't say enough about Chy Conyn and Richard & Lizzie! We had the most enjoyable stay and will certainly be back!!

Stayed at this guest house last weekend for two nights. E owners are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is best I've had in a B and B. there is a bit of a walk up the steep hill to get there but wasn't really a problem. Excellent
