Forget Newquay which really is a dump and stay here. It is a lovely guest house with excellent helpful owners and the location across the road from fantastic Porth beach is amazing.The rooms are very clean and quiet and the breakfast is first class.

Charming, super-helpful hosts, an excellent location just opposite Porth beach and a reasonable price make this a brilliant find that we're certain to return to. The rooms are pleasantly decorated, very comfortable, well thought-out, meticulously clean, and show pleasing attention to detail. The decking overlooking the cove is a lovely place to be. Top-notch breakfast too. While I guess that... More

We just spent 2 nights at The Cove with our 2 daughters (4 and 8 months). It was a fantastic weekend. Andy and Emma are wonderful hosts who made us feel right at home even when we showed up 30 minutes early for check-in. They were very helpful and answered any questions we had about the area and nothing seemed... More

Having decided to spend a few days in Cornwall, we searched online for a night's accommodation the night before we travelled, and stumbled upon The Cove. On arrival, Emma greeted us at the door, and on inviting us into the hall to fill out the booking form, our first impressions were such that we immediately knew we'd like to stay... More

We booked The Cove on the strength of other reviews - and we weren't disappointed. Andy didn't bat an eyelid when we turned up on a loud motorbike, welcomed us warmly and hepled us to to our room. Beautifully appointed with everything you need, very tastefully decorated and a comfy bed! Despite being a little 'cosy' the en-suite was spotless... More

Andy and Emma run a very well organised and beautifully presented guest house. We received a very warm welcome, with homemade was a really great touch. We had two rooms and both were cleaned to a very high standard. Breakfast was fantastic, with a large selection. With cracking bacon and sausages for part of the full English! The wife really...

Straight away from arriving, Andy was very friendly and welcoming. We had the smallest room, but the room was very thought out and I appreciated the layout- mirror and proximity to plug sockets for hair straighteners etc is something often ignored by many places! The bed was very comfortable, despite being small double, and the bedding was all hotel quality... More

A beautiful stay at the Cove. Emma and Andy have done a great job on this great bed and breakfast. The location cannot be beaten, it literally sits opposite the beach and the beach facing bedrooms have a fantastic view. There is a sitting area to the front which we enjoyed after a wedding party on the beach. Never stayed... More
