This is how a B&B should be run. Good position, immaculately clean, friendly welcoming people & attention to detail. It makes such a difference when the operators are happy and enjoying their business. Perfect place for our 3 day stay visiting the Cornwall sights.

Donna and Gill were great hosts and couldn't have been more welcoming. The room was lovely, and the guesthouse ideally placed for both the beach and town, and just a few minutes from the station which was handy for us as we were on foot. We were a little surprised not to find a veggie B&B in such a veggie-friendly... More

Donna and Gill made me feel welcome from the moment I stepped through the door. The place was clean, cosy and comfortable. Each morning, Gill would cook a delicious hot breakfast of my choice off the menu which was a great start to each day. Highly recommended!

Good and clean room with very good breakfast and very friendly and helpful owners. The room to the street side was during the day a little bit noisy and and night it was mostly OK. Not far from the city centre y an easy walk.

Had a most enjoyable stay at this guest house, Donna and Gill were very welcoming and couldn't make us more welcome. The Breakfast was far superior to any Hotel I have stayed in and it was cooked specially to order so therefore was piping hot. The room I had was adequate in size for one, and everywhere was spotlessly clean.... More
