Stayed here last week, loved it. The staff were very helpful and made you feel totally welcome, and couldn't do enough to help us enjoy the short time we stayed. The rooms are tastefully decorated with modern bathroom and the hotel has a great atmosphere. For us the limited bits and bites menu was perfect, if we wanted something more...

After 5 weeks of travelling around the UK, we arrived at Boskerris. It was a warm, sunny July day and it felt like paradise on the terrace sipping a Cornish ale, overlooking the torquise Carbis Bay. The room was ideal. Lovely tea/coffee service, DAB radio was a nice touch, quiet and immaculately clean. The staff were amazing. Attentive, quick to...

We had two stays here in 2016 following on from our first wonderful visit in 2015. Another great stay on both occasions. The hotel has achieved a perfect blend of ultra stylish and ultra comfortable and really homely. The ocean view rooms and the view from the decking is breathtaking. On both stays we ate in the hotel as well...

We stayed for 5 nights. The whole experience from start to finish was consistently excellent. The initial greeting, the rooms, the bar, the helpful tips and the wonderful breakfasts. It will take some beating! Every member of the team was service focused and helpful. If we could come back tomorrow and for every weekend we would!!

We stayed in this hotel some years ago, and we have always held it as a gold standard for hotels in St Ives, and boutique hotels in general. Lovely welcome, a surprise up grade, great atmosphere, room, staff, food, guests! It just did not disappoint.......and since our last visit, we have travelled widely. Thank you Boskerris...we will be back!

Lovely boutique hotel, simple service, fab terrace overlooking Carbis bay and very nicely decorated rooms and public areas. Hope for some evening sun and sit out on the terrace with a bottle of wine – we did, even though we needed blankets! It’s relatively easy to find, with good parking and close to Carbis Bay railway station. The rooms are...

We spent 2 nights here in September on a short break. The hotel is good- but rather disappointingly set in the middle of a residential suburb some miles out of St Ives and about 500 yards from the coast. Transport into town is, however, easy by local train. It's really a hybrid between a hotel and a bed and breakfast....
