“Great mini stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

For one reason or another we both could not stay for the three day break in Penzance that we had planned and I needed to deliver some prints to a client near to Truro so I had to quickly look for a one night stay for one person. I decided to stay in St Ives so that I could visit the Tate and also have a goodly place to wander around.
I searched for a last minute vacancy and up came the 'Sea Breeze' guest house. A quick call and they had a vacancy for the one night.
It overlooks the town of St ives and has fantastic views.
You can walk down and up from the town/beach (you will get used to the walk up..apparently :-) ), but if you want to miss the steps, there is a shuttle bus service, to the middle of town, that operates from very nearby.
The guest house is immaculately presented, has only three/four lovely rooms with sea views. All the rooms are very well decorated and appointed. It also has parking (a scarce commodity in St Ives!) The owners, Gill and Julian, are very welcoming and the breakfast was top knotch. I would thoroughly recommend this guest house. A great place to stay and we will BOTH be staying there next time!

We were Jill and Julian's first ever guests some years ago, and we recently stayed there again after a 3 year break. We received a very warm welcome on arrival, almost like we'd never been away. The room we stayed in was to a very high standard, very clean, well presented and tidy.
The breakfast's here are very tasty and filling, and set you up for thr rest of the day. Jill and Julian always offer sound advice on where to go whatever the weather, and recommend a great selection of places to eat.

The " Sea Breeze " is in our opinion is 5 star hotel standard.Jill and Julian are fabulous hosts and went to every length to ensure our stay was welcoming and a success.
Spottlessly clean comfort, being the order of the day, highly reccomended !!!!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms to a very high standard.

Just returned from my 6th or 7th visit in as many years. Jill and Julian's hospitality and standards were as high as ever. If you're really fussy about cleanliness and luxury accomodation, you really should give Sea Breeze a try. The location is perfect. High enough above the town to be peaceful and give breathtaking sea views from all bedrooms, yet only 10 minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of the town and seafront.

You only have to look at the previous reviews - 80 excellent and 1 very good. We can't all be wrong!

Room Tip: All rooms have great views but if you'd like the added luxury of a 2 person jacuzzi then you nee...

Nice friendly welcome from Jill. Lovely, large, luxurious room with everything we needed plus jacuzzi bath and views over St Ives. Nice breakfast. Stayed 2 nights. Would stay again. Ate at Sea Food Café and Café Pasta. Good food at both. Approx. 10 min. walk to town/harbour via lots of steps!. However, bus available from leisure centre which is 5 min. walk from Sea Breeze. Buses run until 7pm and are £1 per person. Well worth it. Also used taxi a couple of times at £4-£5.

This was the fourth day of our holiday driving round the coast of Cornwall. We had stayed overnight in Penmenner House at The Lizard. Before arriving in St Ives we went to Minack Theatre and St Michaels Mount.

My wife and I have stayed several times at Sea Breeze. Jill and Julian have Bed and breakfast to perfection. I cannot see that you could surpass this place. It is very clean, comfortable and peaceful. It overlooks St Ives and the walk down to the town is in itself beautiful. You could not wish for better hosts than Jill and Julian who are so welcoming and helpful. We have stayed in many bed and breakfasts over the last 30 years and in that time we would only rate five of them as 5 stars and this is one of them because it meets everything that you would want for holiday accomodation. It really is that good.

Room Tip: all rooms are excellent
