On arriving at Boskerris we received a very warm welcome. Our room was bright, fresh and comfortable. The whole hotel is clean, spacious and uncluttered. The decking overlooking the bay, was perfect for our pre dinner drinks on a lovely summers evening. Breakfast was beautifully presented and served with a delicious variety of fruits, cereals and cooked dishes, predominantly using...

My friend and I only stayed one night at the end of a one week tour through Cornwall and absolutely loved this hotel!!! The service was probably the highlight - super efficient, exceptionally welcoming, always helpful - but in contrast to some other places we stayed in it didnt have to 'make up' for a less than wonderful hotel itself....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Boskerris Hotel. Located outside of town and very quiet, we thought taking the train into town was scenic and fun. The highlite of our stay would be the staff. Attentive and very well trained they are unusually good at serving the needs of their guests. The hotel has very comfortable public spaces -...

Me and my husband chose to stay at the Boskerris Hotel due to the picturesque website and great reviews on Tripadvisor - we were not disappointed! It's a beautiful hotel set in Carbis Bay, which is a 30 mins pretty walk to St Ives. The staff were lovely; efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. The hotel is just gorgeous. Every room is...

Having travelled a reasonable amount (though not nearly as well travelled as George!) I feel I must post a review of what wonderful service we had at this hotel during our recent stay (July 2011). I have always used tripadvisor as my holiday 'bible' and have now finally taken the plunge and become a member purely so that I can...

We rarely stay at the same hotel twice, as most disappoint. However, this was our second stay at the Boskerris, the two of us having stayed there this time last year, and once again it didn't disappoint. As before, we found everyone very friendly, attentive and extremely helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble (they even tumble dried our clothes...

When you arrive in the hotel car park, the rear of the building gives you no clue of how wonderful this hotel is. We walked into a light, airy porch area, decorated in soft cream and natural wood, with a tasteful 'coastal' theme. We were greeted by Sam, who was very efficient and helpful. We were shown through to the...

Definitely the best little hotel we've stayed in - stylish in an understated way. The staff are wonderful you felt truly cared for, nothing was too much trouble and the service was friendly and seamless. The breakfasts are divine with a wonderfully inventive menu not the 'run of the mill' we were spoilt for choice!. The public lounges are spacious...

Having just stayed a week in May to celebrate our Ruby wedding we cannot praise the hotel highly enough. We stayed in a superior room overlooking Carbis Bay with St.Ives in the distance, the room and superb bathroom were spacious and light and absolutely spotless . The service enjoyed at the hotel was excellent from the reception to the brilliant...

From pre-arrival to the end of our stay this was an amazing place to stay...it was like staying with family without any intrusion. The location was perfect - close enough to bars and restaurants in St Ives but far enough to be secluded. Beach was very close by to the hotel and the hotel itself was just stunning. The rooms...
