This was a last minute booking and what a fab find it was; lovely little b&b with friendly and welcoming hosts John & Linda. Spotlessly clean everywhere and delicious breakfasts. Great location for exploring the area short walk to the very pretty coastal walks or the train ride into St Ives with magnificent views during the 4 minute journey!

We spent 5 nights here during which we celebrated our wedding anniversary: on learning of which Linda congratulated us very sincerely and we returned in the evening to find a bottle of wine in our room. Another thoughtful touch was after out first breakfast when I'd asked for peppermint tea, sachets of it were left on the breakfast tray in...

A lovely warm welcome from Linda and John the hosts. Guest house immaculately clean with very comfortable king size beds. Adjustable heating in room so never cold. Very prompt and good range of breakfast included in the price. Guest House ideally placed - walking distance to St. Ives (about a mile) and good public transport with regular bus and train...

John and Linda are lovely friendly people, made us feel very welcome and even left us a gift in our room as it was our anniversary. Our room was lovely, immaculately clean and tidy with tea/coffee making facilities etc. The en-suite Bathroom,...

Our room was small but neat, bathroom was great (with everything you need, and great towels), bed was super comfy, we...

We stayed for two nights for a family wedding in Caribs Bay. The room, although small, was comfortable and clean. The good sized bathroom had a good shower and was also very clean. The breakfast was superb! Really well cooked and with a good selection. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. Would stay again and recommend to others visiting...

Stayed here with my partner in early September. The owners were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was superb and cooked fresh to order. They make a great team. Our room was small but we knew that's what we were getting. We just wanted a base to explore Cornwall. Would highly recommend here. Unfortunately we didn't have time to do the...

We very much enjoyed our three nights at Thurlestone Guest House. The room and en-suite were spotlessly clean and comfortable and the breakfasts superb. It is in an excellent location with sea views and convenient for St. Ives and an excellent base for travelling to other places. The coastal walk to St. Ives is a great experience with wonderful views...
