Lynn and JJ are fantastic hosts and warmly welcomed us when we stayed mid August. Our room was lovely, the breakfasts were fantastic, and the Abbey is gorgeous. We really enjoyed our time at St Benet's and would book again!

This was our mid point on a hike across Cornwall Saints Way so arrived a bit wet, very tired and were met with a very warm welcome. JJ took care of all our wet walking gear and we were able to relax with a nice cup of tea and then a great shower with lots of hot water. The rooms... More

Our 4th visit to this delightful home, graciously hosted by Jj & Lyn. When lifes commitments dictate that you have to visit a certain location from time to time, then it is extremely reassuring to be confident in where you are going to stay and be cared for. This is allways our delightful experience with the Abbey and have no... More

We wanted to visit The Eden Project so this appeared to be a good location and had good reviews. We were not disappointed! Beautiful building, tucked away off of the main road which is fast and busy, this is a quiet oasis of calm. Made immediately very welcome by JJ it felt good from the moment we arrived. Such a...

I love the building, very beautiful architecture. Breakfast fantastic with fresh fruits and great croissant. 5 out of 5 for these two items. Building near a main road, so expect some noises but not too bad at night. Room a big disappointment though. We were allocated to a small room attached to the main building with tiny bathroom and no... More

Just had my third stay at this wonderful place. It's full of character and lovely touches of the owners JJ and Lin. They made us feel really welcome, like long list friends. The rooms are all unique and very clean and have all you need. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend for a stay or function. The location is very central... More

We stayed at the Abbey for one night in August. The room was very spacious and the four-poster king-sized bed was wonderful and very comfortable! The room and the rest of the abbey are nicely decorated, to keep the atmosphere of the ancient abbey. The breakfast was also very nice, with choice of English or continental breakfast with my favourites,... More

Just back from a tremendous holiday in cornwall. Stayed for a week at the historical St Benets Abbey and thoroughly enjoyed it. The building itself is truly magnificent and steeped in history with many references to the knights Templars masons. There is a ruined tower to the rear of the property which can be viewed by arrangement with the owners.... More

Arrived late to the hotel, but was no problem. Greeted at reception by the owner. Who was very friendly, showed us round the hotel and to our room. Breakfast was lovely, lots on offer with continental and cooked breakfast. Would definitely visit again. Even if we are newcastle fans

We stayed at St Benets for the weekend of our wedding with a whole group of our wedding guests, from the lovely evening meal on the Friday night, to the beautifully clean rooms and quality bed linen, to the exceptionally tasty breakfasts, the whole stay was most enjoyable. The bar in the lounge was a great asset for us all... More
