“Best B&B I have ever been to”
Reviewed November 11, 2008

This was the second time we went to Ten ocean Views and will go back anytime. Spotless room, comfortable, great views, wonderful breakfast. Basically all you look for in a B&B where you want to relax and be close to town, shopping and restaurants but far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet.
Thanks to Mike and Gill for their warm welcome and looking after us.

We had room 3 which has a superb view of Porthmear Beach.... The bed/mattress was gorgeous.... Some nice touches such as tea and cake when we we arrived, delivered to our room... a morning paper in the breakfast room.... The breakfasts were wonderful.. superbly cooked and presented. On the down side, it was expensive at £85 a night... the tv reception wasn't great and the aerial did look unsightly at the top of the wall... and the walk from town is uphill... having a car isn't necessary but you need to be able to walk! None of these points would stop me giving Mike and Gill maximum marks.

  • Liked — The immaculate bedroom, its views & newness of smart plates/knifes/forks/spoons/cups etc.
  • Disliked — The uphill walk from town.

This is our second visit to Ten Ocean View and this was every bit as good as the last one. As the owners of a small hotel ourselves, we are rather choosy about where we stay. When I originally chose it I had spent some time browsing the net. This B & B lives up to everything that previous visitors have said about it. The view across Porthmeor beach and the Island is just simply fantastic. Gill & Mike even provide some good binoculars so you can try and spot some seals or dolphins (or just spy on the fishing boats). It is spotlessly clean with every comfort you can wish for. The breakfasts are fantastic with choices such as smoked salmon with scrambled egg & a muffin as well as a full Cornish breakfast.
As for Gill & Mike, they are just fabulous hosts and it was lovely just to sit and chat with them over the tea & biscuits they offered us on arrival. Oh and if you ask Mike nicely, he might show you his onions - he certainly grows some big ones!
We can never get away as much as we would like because of the business but we will certainly be back to Ten Ocean View as soon as we can. Can't imagine staying anywhere else in St Ives

Ditto everybody else's positive comments. A lovely house with lovely rooms and stunning views. Mike and Gill were friendly and welcoming and the breakfasts were delicious. Loved the huge bed, the Molton Brown toiletries and the scrambled eggs! If we return to St. Ives, Ten Ocean View will be our first choice of accomodation every time.

For our holiday in the south of England, we booked some B&B's by the internet. Knowing that you always take a risk: is it really what it looks like on the website???

One of them was Ten Ocean View in St Ives. Before this trip we had never slept in a B&B before so we were surprised by the kindness. We slept in sveral B&B's the last 2 weeks, but the Ten Ocean View was really something different. The thick towels, a shower with a strong gush, a dvd player/tv, the smell of fresh home-made bread in the morning, the muesli with lots of nuts and fruit in it: everything was just a little bit more than any other B&B we stayed in. And besides the kindness of Gill and Mike. Thank you!

I would recommend it to everyone who wants to stay in St Ives and is looking for a quality B&B for a reasonable price!

  • Liked — the quality of it all
  • Disliked — the noise in the morning (in the house, water running etc)

we stayed at this bed and breakfast for 4 nights on 18 july.i cannot recommend this place highly enough.
the room(4) at the top was lovely and quaint with the most amazing views of Porthmeor beach.
spotlessly clean and we felt at home,the bed was so comfy and the little touches in the bathroom with the molton brown soaps was a nice touch.
Mike and Gill were amazing hosts,the could not do enough for you and cooked the most fantastic breakfast.
the b and b was in a good location with about a 10 minute walk into town and 5 to the. beach.
there are many good restaurants and you must pay a visit to the Sloop pub.
we will definately be returning to 10 ocean view we did not want to leave.

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Ten Ocean View and cannot fault it in any way. We stayed in the room with kingsize bed and spa bath and found it spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable with a cozy duvet. The view from the window was amazing. The breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice and huge portions. We would like to say a big thank you to Mike and Gill for being such welcoming and attentive hosts. We will definitely be returning as this B & B surpassed all our expectations and was the best holiday we have had in Britain.
