We were stuck for somewhere to stay in Cornwall and got lucky and found Thurlestone Guesthouse. Gary and family could not of been more accomodating, making us all feel very welcome. The rooms and service were superb and the location was great for exploring that part of cornwall. I will definately be using them again and recommending them to my friends,

Stayed for three nights to attend a wedding at the nearby Carbis Bay Hotel and really enjoyed our stay.
After a warm welcome we were delighted to find we had been upgraded to a sea view room at the same price.
Plenty of parking, easy to find, clean decent-sized room, free wifi, bar and fantastic breakfasts. Owners very helpful and a great laugh.

Just spent a couple of very comfortable nights at this place while on a surf trip last week.

Gary and Mandy couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming and the rooms and service were excellent. The lounge/bar was also comfortable and we were more than happy to stay in a have a few quiet beers as opposed to going out.

Superb.

I stayed with my partner for 5 nights during the beginning of September. The B&B is situated very close (5 min steep walk) to Carbis Bay beach on the main road (no trouble sleeping) which we believe is the nicer than the beaches down in St Ives - less busy and touristy.
It will cost you £6/7 to get a taxi to and from St Ives though the train is a 10 minute walk and if you're relatively fit the 25 minute walk along the coastal path is beautiful.
We stayed in Room 3 which was large, had sea views and was immaculately clean and serviced very well every day.
The breakfast has a large choice and for the most part was good quality.
Gary and Mandy are excellent hosts and couldn't make you feel more welcome.
The bar was a highlight with a wide variety of drink to choose from.
Try and avoid eating in Carbis Bay (especially the Italian...Calista I think it was called) and make sure you eat at the Porthminster Cafe as well as Seagrass.
