My boyfriend and I were struggling to get a B&B in St Ives during Aug, we came across the Chy an Gwedhen via trip advisor and not having any luck with other places. But if we were to know then what we know now we'd have booked there straight away!

Mike and Gill were so friendly and fun, they cooked a gret breakfast! the B&B was always very clean and had loads of personal touches that made the holiday for us, DVD player, DVD's, car parking and high standard of rooms.

We didn't have a view from our room but who ever stays in the room with a sea view is in for a treat every morning when they open their curtains- Carbis Bay is breath taking!

we walked into St Ives and back most days oduring our 4 nights/5 days stay which took about 20minutes- take it from us cars and St Ives don't go so walk (you can always pop into the Cornish Arms for a drink on the way)

we loved everything about Chy an Gwedhen, Carbis Bay and St Ives and I hope we'll be back soon.

we arrived a little ealier than expected but we were still made very welcome, the pot tea was very welcome after long drive. The room was a double with sea view was very clean everything you would expect,the bathroom was clean plus all those little extras. The breakfast was wonderful nothing was to much trouble.Their is a lovely coastal walk very near by which takes you to st ives bit hilly on way back but well worth the effort saves taking the car as car parking charges soon mount up.

We stayed here for 4 days, the hosts were friendly with good sense of humour without being intrusive. The location for us was perfect, a pleasant stroll to the town centre of St Ives but quiet enough, so no trying to sleep in hustle and bustle but easy enough to walk to. The pub opposite was a good 'pit stop'. Room was clean and comfortable and breakfast just right.

We have just stayed here for 2 nights over New Year. Stunning location with views out across the bay, warm welcome and great standard B and B. The breakfast is fab - haddock highly recommended for fish lovers! The coastal walk to St Ives is beautiful, especially with a full moon at night. Anyone considering New Year in St Ives should stay here and get into the spirit -the whole town comes out in fancy dress and it's the perfect night for the whole family.

Chy an Gwedhen is a small Guest House on the main road into St Ives and is ideal for people wanting a quiet uncomplicated holiday in a lovely area of the country with personal service.

We found Gill and Mike very hospitable and helpful and were very grateful upon arrival of the proferred pot of tea. Our room was modern and well appointed, equipped with items to give us as much comfort as possible. The en-suite was also modern and the large shower unit was a pleasure to use. There was also an electric towel rail in the shower room which we could use at will and other niceties that are sometimes only found in large hotels. The room also had an up to date TV and DVD player.

The dining room was modern and well laid out, the tables were attractively laid and the breakfasts served were well up to standard, being promptly brought to the table. A menu was left in the room each day for us to make our choice of breakfast for the following morning. The menu was varied and interesting.

Although there was no fridge in the room itself, one was available in the hall for leaving milk, etc in if required.

We were told that should the weather be inclement a drying room was available for wet clothes, etc.

All in all it was a very pleasant experience and far more friendly than staying in a large hotel.
