My partner treated me to a three night break in March staying at the Thurlestone as a birthday treat and we were absolutely delighted with our experience.After the warmest of welcomes nothing was too much trouble for Mandy and Gary and they treatedus more as friends than guests.We would certainly stay there again and recommend it to one and all!

My partner and I , plus our two teenage children, was here for 3 nights in August 2013 and nothing much impresses a 15 year old girl and boy, but both of them said they loved it here, called it cool and asked if we could come back there sometime.
The rooms were clean, nicely furnished, with a homely feel to them, breakfast was excellent with many choices on the menu, and lastly, but not least, the hosts, Mandy, Gary and their daughter, was lovely, very welcoming. The location suited us well, as it was a short taxi ride from St Ives centre, and was great as a base to explore south-west Cornwall.

We've stayed here twice now. Once was at very short notice and Mandy and Gary accommodated us without problems. Rooms are to a high standard, clean, well looked after. Breakfast excellent. A bit on the pricey side and parking limited, but we would certainly return because of all the pluses. By the way, very thick granite walls and double glazed windows mean no traffic noise even though they are right on the main road.

Lovely B&B, Mandy and Gary were great hosts. We had a sea view room which was very nice and comfortable. The breakfasts were brilliant . We will be recommending the Thurlestone to all our friends and family. There are plenty of trains and busses to get you around, but walking is best with some amazing views. Thanks again.

Fantastic hosts. Immaculately clean. Superb breakfasts.(I would recommend the eggs benedict.) can't rate it highly enough. The only downside is that the walk to carbis bay beach is via an almost vertical hill. But didn't detract from a fabulous break. Will return!

What can I say? Amazing hosts, very welcoming as soon as we arrived. Breakfast was lovely and the bar was a great idea as we normally had a couple of drinks before heading out to st Ives for dinner. Would not hesitate to book and visit again. Thx Mandy and Gary.
