This was my first visit to St Ives, staying for three nights at Chy an Gwedhen. The room was great, breakfast excellent and the hosts Gill & Mike were friendly and helpful. They were also able to meet my request for off street parking.

Another fantastic stay at this bed and breakfast. Mike and Jill are so hospitable. We had a beautiful view of the bay. Breakfast was lovely and so much to choose from. We will definitely be going back there again.

I've been there with my girlfriend for Easter and we have enjoyed the great view from the room, the attentive and welcoming hosts, the fresh breakfast (you can choose from three different menus). The room was perfectly clean, with a high quality attention to the details. It's walking distance from St Ives and beaches, there's also a great pub just...

We stayed at the Chy an Gwenhen B&B for 3 nights, Gill and Mike were very hospitable, the breakfast was excellent, with lots of choice. The rooms were beautiful, the location was fantastic, only wish we were able to have a sea view, as it was picturesque, but we booked to late.

I stayed at Chy an Gwedhen with my girlfriend at the start of August for four nights. This was my second visit and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cornwall!

We chose this B&B from the net, certainly one of our better choices. Gill and Mike went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible and provide us with an excellent breakfast. The room was very comfortable with wonderful views over the bay. The only blot on the holiday came when I inquired about a round...

We spent this year's Easter weekend at Chy an Gwedhen and it was beautiful. Our friends got the twin room, we got the single one. As Gill had told us before booking, the room was not bad for a single and it proved to be more than enough for me and my husband. I liked the way the rooms were...
