lovely location room overlooking bayPosted Oct 24, 2017
Pros: location, room atmosphere
Cons: directions to find the hotel
Location: St Ives, Charbel beach and close to highways
had a lovely 4day stay, our room overlooked the bay, lovely walk down to beach, parking good harty breakfast. Martin helpful with the bags and advice about the area, unfortunately it rained for most of the time but it was a pleasant and convenient stay. Very convenient to supermarket and restaurants, and easy access to the main roads to explore Cornwall

Great location, close to station and beachPosted Sep 18, 2017
Nice hotel, really friendly staff. Rooms are spacious and functional albeit in need for a refurbishment. Cooked breakfasts are freshly prepared and decent. Our only gripe were the beds. Not comfortable at all. Otherwise enjoyed our stay.

Is this really 4 star?Posted Aug 23, 2017
The room is tiny, the bathroom even smaller. It seems more like 2 star than 4 star due to a lack of amenities and a tiny space. It needs updating a lot and is a train ride into st Ives rather than a walk. A disappointing stay!

Warm welcomePosted Aug 21, 2017
Lovely B&B in a great location, close to the beautiful beach at Carbis Bay. The train station is a 5 minute walk away so you can travel back and forth to St. Ives with ease. Martin, the owner, went out of his way to make us feel welcome and was always very attentive. Great breakfast too! We'd highly recommend The Borthalan!

Nice hotel close to the train station one.Posted Aug 18, 2017
This hotel is within easy walking distance of the train station just one stop from st ives. It is ideal as parking is difficult in the town and much more expensive than the return train fair. The hotel is friendly and clean and the breakfast is delicious. You can come and go as you please and the host is very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay and recommend this hotel.

Nice location but don't bother with the top floorPosted Aug 18, 2017 on Ebookers
Nice location and staff, with a decent breakfast. But the top floor rooms with seaview were absolutely cramped and even charged at a premium. I even accidentally bumped my head on the roof pillar in the bathroom - my fault as there were warning signs.
