Usually when your sat nav directs you down a narrow lane you become very suspicious! In this case the sat nav was correct and the hotel lies tucked away round the corner but literally 25 meters from the beach. The hotel has been updated very sympathetically form its former Victorian glory. The decor and furnishings were tasteful and pleasing to the eye. The receptionist was both polite but informally friendly and helpful. We chose a room without a sea view but with a small balcony; we only stayed one night and with uncertain weather, we didn't want to pay the extra. The room was compact, as was the en suite shower room, but the bed was very comfortable. For the evening meal, no hot food. but he hotel serve cold platters to order. This was no problem as the centre of St Ives Quay was minutes walk away, along the sea front and it had a wide choice of pubs and restaurants. The full Cornish breakfast was amazing, bacon and sausage being organic and locally sourced. Lovely flavours! Even the brown sauce was organic!
In summary, a very well and tastefully appointed hotel with pleasant, friendly and helpful staff

We stayed here for a couple of nights on a recent tour of the West Country. The property is in the charming village of Lelant, where we enjoyed lovely walks along the coast. Our accommodation was in the Old Laundry which is the smaller option but ideal for a couple. Sue is a charming hostess and very knowledgeable about the local area. Breakfast is cooked to order, plentiful and taken in the main house, which is charming and full of artworks and other interesting bits and bobs! The other accommodation is larger, over two floors, we had the opportunity to look at it and it is stunning. Everything is based around a charming little courtyard with lovely planting and pottery (Adrian runs his pottery business from the site). Great local pub opposite and another pub a short walk away, meals available at both.
Situated in a quiet village about 5 min driver from Hayles golden beach. The room we stayed in is separate from the pub with it's own front door. The room itself was lovely, possibly recently refurbished. We had dinner in the pub, we ordered a normal portion and a small portion of scampi and chips from the bar menu. If I'd realised how big the small portion was going to be, I would have ordered that instead of the normal portion! (Not a complaint by any means!!).
The breakfast was nice. The table was already laid for us when we got there with a choice of cereal. We were then brought coffee/tea and asked if we wanted full english. We took this offer up and the breakfast was lovely.
Would stay again.
As a business traveler I'm often faced with faceless hotels and hotel staff that simply don't care whether I have what I need. Boo and Matt could not have been further away from this experience. I was greeted with both warmth and friendliness. My every need was taken care of.
The bedroom and bathrooms are to an extremely high standard - much better than I'd expected.
I will definitely be staying at Bostrase again - hopefully with my family next time!
The Coldstreamer is primarily a pub and restaurant, but has a few hotel rooms upstairs. The staff was lovely and very accommodating. The restaurant was pleasant with interesting dishes to choose from. The room was small and clean. The bed was slightly uncomfortable and the pump in the bathroom was very loud and startling, when you ran water, flushed or showered. There is an old church across the street and the church bells were lovely. Unfortunately, if you aren't used to them, they can wake you up all night long. There was also a lot of loud early morning traffic, which made it difficult to sleep. The hotel provides ear plugs and I would recommend using them. Overall, a quaint little pub with decent accommodations.
Very nice people, the breakfasts were delicious, and the room we stayed at was spacious and comfortable. If we travel to Cornwall in the future, we would hope there is an open room available. Close to St Michael's Mount and St Ives as well.
