My wife and I stayed 14th-16th August 2011 in ‘Carn Brea.’ This is the smaller of the two rooms on offer and is £10 cheaper at £70 per night; each room has an en suite shower and lavatory. Carn Brea has a king-size bed. Decor is new and the accommodation is very clean and comfortable. Flannel, hand and bath towel are supplied as are soaps and moisturizers. The showers have large roses and use mains pressure. Breakfast is ‘full ’English’ as you like it, with fruit, fruit juices, cereal, sliced bread, which one can toast oneself and butter. I appreciated the thoughtful touches of: branded sauces, cloth napkins, home made marmalade and wooden coat hangers. TV/DVD is in each room and there is a plentiful availability of films. One is made to feel at home by the warm, but not intruding, presence of the proprietors, Simon and Lindsey. My wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and we shall return.

Just returned from a short break with our baby daughter for our first family holiday and have to say Blue Sky was the perfect place for us to stay, and Lindsay and Simon made our first family holiday very memorable.

We had a very spacious double room with a gorgeous bay window - perfect to unwind and relax with sea views. Plenty of room for our travel cot and didn't feel crammed with our baby daughter at all. Lovely decor, amazingly comfortable bed and perfect little extra touches.

Fantastic breakfast served every morning - fresh fruit, yogurts, cereal, almost any type of cooked breakfast, started our days off very well, before walking down the hill to the beach or town, where there are plenty of restaurants, local shops and pubs to choose from.

Would love to visit again and definitely recommend this B&B.

Our spacey double en-suite room was very nice, comfortable and clean with sea view and proofed attention to detail with respect to equipment as there were not only tea/coffee making facilities and a TV set (including a DVD player), but e.g. "binoculars" for the great sea view or an available range of acclaimed DVDs from all genres.

The breakfast was wonderful and diversified, and even contained a selection of yummy fresh fruits.

However, while our expectations were already significantly exceeded by all of the aforementioned, we need to especially emphasize the hosts Lindsay and Simon: They were super friendly, welcoming, helpful, nice, ... In addition to providing great recommendations or any type of information/guidance needed (like a scones recipe *g*), they helped us finding a place to stay on our long way back and actually even booked it for us!

So, as one of the other reviewers has already said, our expectations were by far exceeded and we cannot recommend this B&B highly enough!

This B & B is opened recently, Rooms are newly decorated and the ensuite bathroom is very clean and the bed is comfy. The breakfast is great as there are many choices, cereal, full English, tea or coffee, just to name a few. More important is Simon and Lindsey are great host and there is a little cute girl welcoming you.

Also, Blue Sky is just within the walking distance to town, beaches, train station and bus stop. I cant wait to visit again.

We stayed at Blue Sky for 3 nights and can't say enough good things about it. The owners, Simon and Lindsey, were very welcoming and friendly. The room was newly decorated to a high standard and was very clean. We stayed in Carn Brea, which was a beautiful room with plenty of cupboard and drawer space.
Breakfast was excellent, with seasonal fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt, bread/toast and a full English breakfast (other choices of cooked breakfast also available), along with fruit juice, coffee and tea.
This B&B is a short walk from the beach and harbour, and has stunning views of the sea.
There is also private parking available on the driveway, which during high season is about as close as you can get to the beach and harbour.
We cannot recommend this B&B highly enough and will definitely be returning, and we'll also be passing on the details to all our friends and family.

Lovely comfy en-suite room with TV, tea/coffee stuff and biscuits, breakfasts with piles of proper fruit like brambles and raspberries and blueberries, and then bacon, sausages, eggs, mushrooms, etc. Lindsey and Simon are great hosts, and can point you to the best beaches, walks, restaurants, pubs, pasty shops, and most importantly, to tiny little tea-shops in the middle of nowhere with big huge home made scones and mountains of jam and cream. We'll be back!
