Friendly hosts who spent time ensuring everything was ok. Great room, good breakfast, car park, good location to visit the area. Close to the railway station with little noise. The main thing is they care, offer advice for days out etc.

We had a lovely 4 night stay at the Borthalan Hotel. The location was perfect, as soon as we arrived we were greeted with a breathtaking sea view and although we didn't pay for a sea view there was a wonderful view out the front with some chairs & table. The train station was a 2 min walk and we caught this into St Ives a few times which was a 4min journey for £1. We also walked it some days it was about 30-40 mins but a beautiful coastal walk. I will say there are lots of hills which were tough on day one but I was used to them by the end of the trip but the train option is great when you just want to get back. Our bedroom had an en suite bathroom, tea and coffee facilities and a TV. It was perfect for us as we were out all day and was nice to watch a little TV whilst unwinding before falling asleep. Our beds/towels were not changed during our 4 night stay because of Covid but this didn't bother us at all as was such a short stay. The cooked breakfast was delicious. Due to Covid we had to pre-book a slot which was OK for us but a little bit of an inconvenience if you want to be up and out early. The hosts were lovely. Very Friendly and welcoming and let us know where they were if we needed them so it was nice to come and go at our own leisure. This was our first trip away during Covid and we felt very safe. There was hand gel at the door. The communal living room was closed off and breakfast times scattered so we weren't all there at once. I would visit here again

Guesthouse was lovely, well hosted by Martin and Margaret. Warm welcome upon arrival and nice farewell on departure too which gives the stay the overall personal feel. We were given the room on top floor with excellent sea view room was lovely too every last touch added to make it homely. Close to St Ives harbour we got the train in and left our car at the guesthouse which was a really good idea, suggested by Martin. Carbis bay station was a 5 minute walk and trains run every 30 minutes! Breakfast in the morning was lovely too we filled in the breakfast form the night before and was served that in the morning. Overall lovely stay will be going back, definitely recommend it.

Excellent stay
We had an absolutely comfortable and relaxing stay. The area was accessible and had parking. It was close to the train station to St. Ives and further down the hill is Carbis bay beach. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was good. The owners are really friendly and accommodating. We will definitely come back and stay!
