It was our first weekend away as a couple and this B&B did not disappoint. The room was finished to a very high standard and exceptionally clean and the view was magnificent overlooking the bay. Breakfast was definitely a highlight, the full english was delicious and fills you up for the entire day. Julie and Mick were fantastic hosts, attentive... More

This B&B is a great place to stay. Our room had a beautiful sea view. The room was spacious as was the bathroom. The breakfast was amazing. Lots to choose from. Had the old eyes to big for the stomach most mornings. Down sides, decaf coffee is instant, the single glazing let's in noise from the street and although there... More

This is an excellent place with easy parking, they know what guests appreciate. For a B&B the rooms are to a high standard, particularly enjoyed the Nespresso and biscuits in the morning and they even left more capsules when they learnt we used them all. Breakfast is a highlight, well laid out selection, nice variety cooked meals done just right.... More

27 The Terrace is more than a B&B... think boutique hotel with the charm of a county house... the location provides views across the bay and the dinning area is reminiscent of a stately house... The breakfast is of the highest quality and I enjoyed one of the finest Egg Benedict, rivalling some of the best breakfast spots in London.... More

Having recently spent 4 nights here I can thoroughly recommend it. We had a down stairs room that was fitted out to the highest standard. The window was very small and at literally, ground level - this would be the only downside if you want a view. The bathroom was the best fitted-out hotel bathroom I have ever had. The... More

Stayed here for two nights in May. My husband and I couldn't recommend highly enough. The staff are accommodating and friendly, the sea views from the room we had were superb and was a brilliant location for visiting the centre of St Ives. Will definitely be returning!
