Reviewed September 1, 2007

Absolutely faultless in every way, there is not one single thing that could fall to be criticised. The best standard of cleanliness, decor, presentation, superb breakfasts, fantastic location and to make it complete perhaps the nicest hosts in Gill and Mike.

Could not imagine staying anywhere else now and can't wait for the next time.

What a place. We have just been back for the second year running. This really is the only place to stay in St Ives. You couldn't meet a more lovely couple than Mike and Gill. They are so friendly and greet you like old friends when you arrive, whether you have stayed there before or not. The breakfast is just the best you could have and is so big you dont need to eat all day. As for mike's soda bread, well you'll just have to take my word for it thats its the best. I dont think there is anything they wouldnt do to help you enjoy you stay. Its situated in the perfect place with stunning views overlooking the Tate and views of the beach. Check out there website, (--). The rooms are so nice and comfortable, and the garden, which they are more than happy for you to sit in, is situated at the front of the property, so it also has the stunning views of St Ives that you have from the rooms. I can't recommed this place highly enough, it really is the best and only place to stay in St Ives.

Stayed at Ten Ocean View for one night in order that my partner and I could attend a wedding in St Ives. We opted out of staying at the hotel where the wedding reception was taking place on the grounds of cost and mediocre reviews.

Ten ocean view was just the ticket, great location reasonably priced clean en-suite rooms, with a hearty breakfast in the morning etc. everything you would like to expect from a B & B. Although the only room available to us was at the back of the property (B & B fully booked) the views from the bedrooms located at the front of the property must be excellent as breakfast is served on the ground floor at the front of the property which looks out over the beach and sea.

The owner was very accommodating sorting us out with last minute transportation to the wedding reception, this was most appreciated.

There are so many mediocre places that I've stayed in before and it’s nice to be able to give praise where praise is warranted.

Highly recommended.

What beautiful place, in a beautiful location, with fantastic hosts.
We spent 3 nights in St. Ives and had an amazing time. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like we were staying at the home of old friends. Mike and Gil are just the nicest people you could ever want for hosts. Mike called and got us reservations for dinner in the town upon our arrival, making the search for food a simple task. The breakfasts were 5 star and served in a cozy breakfast room with stunning views of the beach. My husband and I stayed in a double room, our two teenage daughters stayed in a room with 2 twins. Both had ensuite baths, both spotless, comfy and spacious. The neighborhood was quiet, and the walk to town pleasant. It was a bit of a challenge finding the exact location, but the directions on the website were very precise...we found it eventually :)
The town of St Ives was the perfect base for our day trips to Land's End and to the Minack Theater and St.Michael's Mount. The beach was loaded with huge waves, and therefore many surfers every day. The B&B is located at the top of a steep hill, and we got quite a workout walking to and from the downtown area, but if need be, there are taxis to bring you back and forth.
I cannot stress enough how good the food was. Mike makes his own soda bread and is as good as is found in Ireland, if not better, made with fresh, local ingredients. His porridge with fruit and cream was out of this world!
This will be the standard against which all future stays in B&B's for us will be measured. Thanks to Mike and Gil for being such gracious and kind hosts :)

stayed at Ten Ocean View in May and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The owners were pleasant and friendly and the breakfast were good. Quite close to the beach but not in the centre of st ives. Would recommend it to couples.

This place is truly exceptional and outstanding.

We were made to feel very welcome in an unobtrusive way. The room and en-suite were spotless. The bed extremely comfortable, the en-suite large with an excellent shower. Breakfast was simply delicious (the best we've had anywhere) with a fantastic view of Porthmeor Beach.
We sat out after a walk along the coast path in the garden, and the picture was taken from there.
Parking was on-site. All that St Ives offers is an easy walk away, including the Tate, less than 300 metres.

Have just returned from a four night stay at this B and B in room number three which had fantastic views of the bay and Porthmeor Beach. Superb room with quality furnishings, comfortable bed and stylish bathroom with spa bath. The breakfasts surpassed our expectations utilising high quality local produce. Our host's, Gil and Mike, were very welcoming and extremely friendly. We would not hesitate in recommending this accomodation to anyone visiting this beautiful part of Cornwall. We will definately return !
