We spent three very comfortable nights at St. Benet's in late August. Our room was small (twin beds tend to do that) but clean and comfortable, and the hotel (a converted abbey, as the name implies) is charming and beautifully situated, with an attractive lawn and garden and even a babbling brook in the front yard. Lynn and John (J.J.)... More

We recently spent three nights at St Benet's. We enjoyed the stay and would recommend it to anyone seeking a retreat from the tourist hotspots. It's location is ideal for travel to the north and South Coast. The Eden project is minutes away. The welcome was extremely warm but not overpowering. The owners were always on hand if you needed...

We stayed here overnight when my husband Paul was cycling from John O'Groats to Land's End. From the moment that I spoke to Lynn on the phone I felt really welcomed into this wonderful home and as others have mentioned they really can't do enough for you. We had a nice stroll to the nearby pub for dinner which was... More

Very friendly, lovely place to stay. Good breakfast. Couldn't do enough for us. Great to have a bar. Welcome overnight stay when walking the Saints Way. Beautiful building. Limited places for supper within walking distance.

My husband Darren and I enjoyed a fab stay at St Benet's Abbey in August (22nd-26th). We were made extremely welcome; the rooms were comfortable and well-stocked with tea, coffee and toiletries; and the breakfast with personal requests was a lovely touch. There was also plenty of choice for breakfast (hot and cold) and the waitress and buffet combination was... More

Comfy beds”; “Great location”; “Fantastic service” and an interesting hotel. A big thank you to John, Lynn and baby Faith for looking after myself, my partner and my family. A visit to the local village was very pleasant and we enjoyed the Welcome Strangers (fish and chip shop).

We found St Benet's Abbey last minute as an add-on to our onward trip to Penzance. What a place! On arrival, we received a warm and friendly welcome from the owners, JJ and Lynn. We were shown to our room (Room 1), which was clean and spacious with lovely views out to the garden. After an evening meal at a... More

As soon as you arrive you see the buildings have great character. When you get to the marvellous old front door you see it has great character. Then you meet the owner, a great character.

We stayed for 7 nights and had a fantastic time. The property is very interesting with lots of history and is also very comfortable. Lanivet is an excellent base, with quick access to the north and south coast. We stayed in Room 8 which had its own external entrance and was very quiet. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of...
