Ten Ocean View
Ranked #37 of 102 St Ives B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 June 2016

We came across this place quite by chance when searching for a couple of nights in St Ives. What a stunning place on every way. The owners couldn't do more to make the place heaven on earth. We stayed in the 'Zennor' room - a beautiful loft conversion with a crow's nest view of the stunning beach and coastline beyond. A pair of chairs by the window meant that we sat there and just gazed out to sea. What seemed like hours. The room itself was the epitome of luxury with everything you could possibly want and the en suite equally spot on. And then the breakfast. Wow. Huge choice was available - you simply completed an order form the evening before. I chose the fresh fruit to start followed by the largest portion I've ever seen of sublimely presented scrambled egg with smoked salmon. Without doubt he finest view and one of the best rooms we've ever stayed in. Add a fabulous breakfast and this place is unbeatable.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view if you can....

We were staying for some nights at the Ocean in a room on the top floor overlooking the ocean. The room itself is cozy and spotless clean but not very spacious, that we had to leave our suitcases in the car because there was no space to put them. The bathroom was well equpied with a jacuzzi bathtub and Molton Brown cosmetic products. Very friendly owners and great breakfast!

Room Tip: Make sure to book a room overlooking the ocean! It is worth the money!

As we walked into the room my husband said "I wish we booked two nights instead of one here!" which sums it up. The room (called Zennor) was brilliant. Very spacious feel, but cosy with the sloping ceilings. The views out of the window were amazing - and a pair of binoculars in the room were a lovely touch. The bathroom was also literally sparking clean.

We rang Amy early evening for the ironing board and she brought it out straight away. She was also very helpful by letting us leave our car until midday (a couple of hours after check in) so we could wander into St Ives before we left, as car parking looked tricky. Check in is from 12.30, much earlier than any hotel I've stayed in.

The breakfast was delicious. I had scrambled egg, smoked salmon and home made toast. The portion was huge and really tasty. My husband had breakfast muffins with poached eggs and enjoyed that too. It was a nice change from a fry up. There were also mini fruit salads out - they looked so appetising and tasted lovely. Also yoghurt, cereals and homemade bread with a toaster. A range of juices or they can make you tea/coffee. Lovely to sit and eat in the bay window and admire the view some more.

They also have a very cute garden, again with a view, that guests can sit in

Great location as it is easy walking distance from St Ives centre only 5/10 mins. They also have guest passes for the Tate and somewhere else (I've forgotten where!) which you can borrow.

We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to friends/family.

Thank you Amy and Toby for a lovely stay!

We only stayed one night at Ten Ocean View because we were passing through, mores the pity, because it was a great place, we would have happily stayed longer. Modern and very well situated for the beach, the Tate and the main stretch for restaurants. However, the thing that really sets this place apart from the numerous run-of-the-mill B&Bs we stayed at, is their approach to food. Not only is their breakfast menu inventive and interesting, they also cook it to perfection. My partner has an intolerance to wheat, which can often be a problem when we stay away. When we asked if they had gluten free toast their response was “sure, what type”. How amazing is that! The view from the dining room was sublime, so all in all we loved our short stay. It’s not cheap but if you value high standards and quality food, it’s well well worth it.

Excellent place to stay; clean, airy, relaxed, friendly customer service. Short walk past Porthmeor Beach into town. Food of a very high quality. I'll be mentioning Ten Ocean View to friends. Thanks for a good couple of days. Sara.

The view from our room was wonderful----great view and very quiet. The location is good if you have a car, but for us who were walking, it was a bit of a climb up the hill. Our room and bath were quite nice although the wi-fi didn't reach our top floor for most of the time. The breakfast was good ---although my husband wish there had been some meat and I thought there was too much food. The owners, when around were very nice and helpful, but it was a bit unusual to arrive and find a note telling you where to find your room and not see them until the next day. So didn't feel as welcoming as other places where we stayed. Also a bit on the pricey side.

Thanks for your review. It was lovely meeting you both. We are sorry you were disappointed we weren't in when you arrived - we provide the key lock boxes for all guests to enable check-in from 12.30pm so that guests can get a full day in St Ives on their arrival day (most places don't allow guests to arrive til late afternoon because sadly us B&B owners also have to fit in cleaning, food shopping and various other preparations so can't be in the house all day!). We have found that guests are generally thrilled with this arrangement. Because you booked through a walking tour company we did not have the usual pre-arrival contact that we have with all our other guests during which we explain all the arrival information. We are also sorry you found the wifi patchy but we do state on the website that because our rooms are soundproofed and Zennor is on the second floor, some devices do struggle to pick it up in that room. We hope the rest of your trip was very enjoyable - we were very impressed with the distance you had covered on your tour of the South West! Very best wishes, Amy & Toby
