This is a really good B+B. The room was clean with a very comfortable bed. The breakfast was good. Prices were very reasonable. There is parking on the driveway which is a great bonus around St Ives. It is in a great position - close to Carbis Bay beach, walking distance to St Ives, on a bus route and close to the station. There are good restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay here again.

This b n b is situated in a perfect spot at the top of carbis bay not far from the st Ives centre which can be reached via train, car or bus.
Pete was very good with local knowledge and will help you to go wherever you need to. The breakfast every morning is spot on and caters to most, the one thing I will say is there are no vegetarian alternative to sausages and bacon.
The rooms are of a good size but the en suites are very small and not very well ventilated, there is a damp smell in them. Other than that it is a very clean hotel really.

We did our homework on booking this trip to St. Ives as a bad B&B visit some years ago had given us second thoughts of ever coming back. The thing is that Cornwall and in fact St. Ives are not cheap to stay. We found certain things about the 'Hotel', pretty useful - parking....
It was not really a Hotel, just really a slightly oversized B&B. The rooms were clean enough and spacious. There was a smell of mould from the shower room, possibly due to it's obviously amateur fitting. The breakfast was fine, but we never understood why we needed to advise them the night before of our choice! The overall look of the place was ok if not a little un loved, but the owners were very friendly and chatty. Worth a stay, but don't get your expectations too high!

Room Tip: The rear may be better away from the main road.

My girlfriend and I recently spent 4 nights in Carbis Bay to celebrate 7 happy years together and we chose to stay at Beechwood B&B. This was my first time in Cornwall and I couldnt have wished for a more enjoyable holiday. Beechwood is a lovely place to stay, the rooms are clean and of a decent size, the owners are friendly and welcoming and always happy to offer some advice about where to visit. There is free parking and the cooked breakfast every morning is delicious! The only downside is that the ensuite shower is small and the rooms are quite expensive.

The B&B is located on the main road running through Carbis Bay and onto St.Ives. It's a very short walk down a steep hill to get to the beautiful beach and from here you can take the coastal path in either direction...about 25mins to St.Ives and a similar time to get to Hayle in the other direction. If you aren't the walking type then Carbis Bay train station is half way down the hill towards the beach and is just a £1 return trip to St.Ives.

If you have your car then there are so many wonderful places to go visit nearby to Carbis Bay. St.Michaels Mount is a short drive away, a bit further away is Lizard Point and the beautiful Kynance Cove. Minack theatre offers a wonderful setting to watch a play, and Padstow has plenty in the way of quality food.

All in all a really enjoyable trip and I can highly recommend both Carbis Bay and Beechwood as a place to stay.

Room Tip: Take a car so you can go exploring more of Cornwall.

We have just spent three nights at Beechwood House and had a fantastic time. We were made very welcome by Pete and Jan and the service was excellent. Pete has a wealth of local knowledge to share and a smashing sense of humour ! Excellent breakfast too !

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Beechwood, got to say, we had a very nice stay there, Pete is full is Midlands wit, and a really informative host, offering loads of suggestions / ideas of places to visit and ways of getting to them. Rooms were comfortable (we had the king room No10), the bed was unbelievably comfortable, i take the point of a previous review about a sliding door to the bathroom, but didn't give us any hassle. Breakfast was good and filling, good choice and really no problem to order the previous night, fresh fruit salad, cereals, fruit juice for starters. Not really troubled by road noise, although we were staying at the front of the house. A good italian (Casa Romana) just along the road too for evening meals. buses run often into St Ives center so no need to drive in, will definitely be staying there again

Room Tip: Room 10 for very comfortable king size bed
