We chose this guest house based on the good reviews and weren't disappointed. Emma and Andy gave us a warm welcome and our sea-view room with a double and twin-bed was charming. Emma was ten years a textile teacher and the surf theme of our room was bright and colourful with hand sewn cushions. The heat comes on at 5... More

I really enjoyed my stay at The Cove Guesthouse. The service was great, the rooms were very comfortable and the breakfasts were fantastic. Would highly recommend anyone looking for a relaxing stay in Newquay and Porth.

This is a really lovely place to stay. Firstly from a cleanliness point of view, everything was spotless - from the bedroom to the bathroom and dining area. The place is very nicely decorated and the hosts are very welcoming and very helpful, not to mention the delicious homemade cakes. Great choice of breakfast from fruit, cereal, porridge to full...

We loved and highly recommend this great B&B in the surfing capital (reputedly) of the UK. The room was extremely comfortable and had a great view of an inlet on the Cornish coast. The breakfast included fresh fruit (including raspberries) and ham, sausages, eggs, etc. WiFi was free and the hosts, Emma and Andy, were very welcoming and helpful. Excellent... More

We booked into The Cove Guest House for just one night and what a find. Stunning setting overlooking Porth beach. We sat out on the decking with mine hosts, Emma and Andy, enjoying a pot of tea and watching the sun setting over the water. Our rooms were tastefully decorated with a lot of thought, comfortable and clean. We even... More

Very friendly greeting on arrival, cake of the day was waiting in the room, spotlessly clean/ freshly decorated rooms, breakfast was delicious, the decking in the sunshine was a highlight for us! It was a stone's throw to the beach.

Andy & Emma were very welcoming people. We stayed for my birthday weekend, wasn't too far from the surf school, ideally located next to a beach, rooms very stylish, clean and tidy, dining was excellent and they make the best home made cakes at half 3! Was worth the 5 hour drive! Jay & Lucy

Had a late booking, and we were welcomed in at 9:00p.m. with a smile and a full tour of the house. Lovely view of the water from the room. Mermaid Inn directly across street with vegetarian options and great beer. Wonderful vegetarian breakfast with choice of veggie sausages. Fun banter with owners (one of which is a bassist in a...

Now I'm a very fussy 'stayer' and I cannot fault The Cove. Arrived and made very welcome, lovely room, lovely bedding, clean room and bathroom spotless, lovely and quiet, breakfast - great choice, freshly cooked, homemade jam, choice of fruit again couldn't fault it. We sat outside yesterday afternoon on the decking and Emma brought us out homemade cakes -... More
