We found The Cove to be beautifully taken care of - far, far higher than a regular B & B, hence why they advertise as "Relaxed Luxury Costal" B & B. There's no false advertising here. We had the family room as there was my partner and I and my two children. The accommodation was lovely, beautiful views, lovely and... More

I'm not sure how many times we have now returned to the Cove since Andy and Emma acquired the business. We've lost count of the number but it's still the first destination that comes to mind if we fancy time away from home. Even during the cold, wet and windy days of autumn and winter there's a distinct lure -... More

Me and my partner stayed here NYE and Andy was very welcoming on arrival, showed us to our room where we had a complimentary bottle of Prosecco and two lovely home made cakes. Room was decorated lovely and overall a very warming B and B. There is a pub across the road which is also very accommodating and brilliant location.... More

The cove guesthouse never disappoints on my travels to Newquay. Great service and breakfasts yet again, great views and comfortable beds. Always lots to do in Newquay and Andy and Emma are always happy to help you decide where to go. 10/10

We stayed at the Cove Guesthouse during our recent UK trip and we weren't disappointed. Andy and Emma were friendly and welcoming hosts and very helpful. Our room had a beautiful view over the bay, the bed & pillows were comfortable and the shower was good too. Everything was clean and well presented. Breakfasts were lovely and served with a... More

Last time we visited Andy and Emma at the Cove, they'd only just taken over what was then the Alex. Our latest visit showed that in the couple of years between our visits they've made the Cove their own. The rooms have been tastefully redecorated to Emma's high standards. The bed was extremely comfortable and everything was perfectly clean. We... More

Visited last summer with my boyfriend and the place definitely exceeded expectations! Very friendly, amazing rooms and great breakfast! The Cove is a great location for exploring the local area. We recommended to our parents who booked up for a holiday there this summer and they loved it just as much as we did. The fresh cakes that were made... More

We stayed here for one night as we were attending a friend's wedding at Lusty Glaze beach down the road. We were warmly greeted and the room was clean, tidy and had a lovely beach theme... The owners are so friendly and chatty, and helped direct us to Lusty Glaze the simple way (with buggy!), they told us about the... More

We recently stayed here for a week to explore Cornwall and we couldn't have booked a better place. It's a small guesthouse practically on the beach in Porth. There is a sun terrace which is lovely for watching the sun set. Andy and Emma couldn't have been more welcoming. The rooms are very comfortable spotlessly clean with a modern beach... More
