We had a wonderful couple of days at the Abbey. The room we had was very comfortable, nice size, everything was there for you. John and Lyn made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was amazing, plenty on hand. If you have an interest in Medieval buildings then the Abbey has plenty of history, much more history still to be uncovered.... More

First break for several years and this was superb for Valentines Day. Actually know the owners and we're delighted with all aspects of our stay. Quiet with stream tinkling noise in the morning with the window ajar masked any traffic from the road. Bed was comfortable; sofa made sitting in afternoon with tea a pleasure. Walk to pub for evening... More

The room we stayed in was nicely decorated, however the door to the bathroom was a cheap kind which you get in student housing and the bathroom was wall to wall imitation dark brown marble which was very dark and unappealing. However the new owners haven't had the place long and once these things have been improved I believe the... More

My husband recently booked a night at St. Benet's Abbey as a birthday surprise. Everything from arrival to departure was perfect with owners Lynn and J.J. going out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. A beautiful and characteristic building with warm rooms and a very comfy bed. Everything spotlessly clean and breakfast plentiful. Would definitely recommend to anyone... More

We recently booked St Benet's for a 60th birthday celebration. The weekend we had was unbelievable our hosts Lynn and J.J.could not have done anything more for either our guest or ourselves. J.J. helped arrange entertainment rooms etc, and his staff went out of their way to ensure everyone was catered for. I have nothing but praise for this family... More

We live in Plymouth and visit Cornwall frequently. December is our favourite time of year to visit. It is often dry, albeit cold, but Cornwall is as beautiful in the winter as it is in the summer. What is especially nice is that it is quieter than in the summer and there is still plenty going on. We went to... More

We stayed at St Benet's for three nights during the October half term with our 11 year old son. The hotel is a wonderful old building full of character and period features. Being a short distance from the A30 the location means exploring Cornwall is easy from the central location. We enjoyed a comfortable stay and had the family room... More

Our family stay was one night only and the booking was made by a relative on our behalf. After an initial journey from Italy two days earlier and a car journey from London it was good to receive such a warm welcome from the proprietor at such a lovely location. Lovely spacious bedrooms,very comfortable nights sleep, excellent choice of breakfast,... More

Came here for one night with my husband. The rooms are beautiful and very spacious, with the original abbey windows. This place has a lot of history and the owner gave us a tour and filled us in on its The Abbey's story. We felt very welcomed and even met the little boss. The bed was queen size and so... More

We stayed two nights at St. Benet's Abbey in early September and wished it could have been longer. We picked St. Benet's because it was centrally located in Cornwall, had good reviews, and it appeared to be an historic inn -- it exceeded all of our expectations. It's a 600 yr old Abbey, but very warm and welcoming. It's right... More
