We were attending a wedding at the Carbis Bay Hotel and were looking for accommodation nearby of a high standard but reasonably priced. Downsfield B&B really fitted the bill! We showed up early but our hostess Sharon was very welcoming and let us park/leave our bags ahead of check-in time. The house is very well kept and comfortable, a home from home really but I wish my home is as nice! The bedrooms are large and warm, the beds comfortable. You share a large, clean bathroom with the other guests but they provide bathrobes so no-one gets a shock on the landing! The breakfast next morning was first class. They have a variety of breakfast choices but we opted for a full English and it was well cooked and presented. In terms of location, it's ideal for anyone walking the coast path or attending a function at the Carbis Bay Hotel. It's a 10 minute walk downhill from the B&B to either so very convenient. Obviously it's uphill on the way back but we saw taxi services ferrying people to and fro so those who don't fancy the walk shouldn't be put off. If we head to St Ives in future, would definitely consider staying here again and would recommend others do too.

Stayed: October 2013

Downsfield B & B does have some good aspects that make it attractive, such as on site parking and a bus stop that is located right across the road which is the most efficient way of getting into and out of town. Our room was also a good size with some ocean glimpses but unfortunately we didn't realise at the time of booking that there is a shared bathroom between 3 or 4 rooms which is not what we expected. Had we realised this oversight prior to arrival we would have booked somewhere else with ensuite facilities.

We were expecting great things from this B&B and were very disappointed. The room was very small with no extra touches such as tissues etc. The dirty tea cups were not taken away the next morning nor was the tea or milk replenished. The room had a peep of the sea, not wonderful sea views as advertised.
At breakfast dirty plates were left on our table while other vacant tables were cleared. Also the poached eggs were hard boiled and rubbery so we could not eat them. The owners have a long way to go to becoming great B&B hosts. Weren't greeted with tea and biscuits - the other reviews sound like a different place!

Room Tip: Try not to get a room with the shared bathroom as we had long waits to use it at times

stayed here over the bank holiday weekend for our daughters wedding. The owners were lovely, welcomed us with coffee & biccys, everywhere was beautifully clean, the rooms were lovely & breakfast was scrumptious. Walked down to beautiful beach in a few minutes, just wish we could have stayed longer , can't recommend it highly enough,
