My husband and I have just had a 3 night B&B stay at the Sea View House. Can I please remind you all that the current owners have only been in this property for some 8 months and are determined to ' make a difference ' with the work in progress that they are doing to improve the property, this...

Seaview has lovely owners and they have only been in control for less than a year and they are making improvements but... the B&B does smell of dogs (they have two large ones) and the room we had was a sad place. Paint chipped off the walls, poorly managed electrical wiring, a 4 foot high bathroom mirror in a very... More

We stayed for most of a week while working a show at the Minack Theatre. Our double room with en-suite was clean, bed was comfortable, shower worked fine, no sea view. Owners friendly, breakfast good. Fine as a place to sleep and shower but room somewhat cramped if, like me, you needed to spend any time in it. Very difficult... More

Breakfast was fab. Pauline and the other lady were very friendly . The area is beautiful . Maybe ladies you should have... More

We were renting a cottage in Lizard and chose to stay here for a night as we were watching The Tempest at the Minack. The proprieters couldn't do enough to help make our stay comfortable and relaxing, giving us blankets and cushions for our visit to the theatre. Breakfast was superb next morning, also, and we had no problems with... More

We stayed there one night on our walking trip round Landsend and were rather disappointed by a cold shower in the evening and in the morning due to a full house- we came in around 6 pm. Our twin bed room under the roof seemed to be made up with a new bathroom, but the bathroomdoor didn't close tight, so... More

We found the Sea View House to be shabby, cramped and unfriendly. We did have a sea view but the room was so musty (with way too much airfreshener to cover it up) that I had an asthma attack. The proprietor was rude -- the House does not open till 4, and the day we were there was pouring rain... More

We stayed here for one night on a walkining holiday, combined with a visit to the Minack Theatre, which is well worth a visit (but book early for the shows). The B& B was not cheap (£78) but was not particularly special, quite a small room but clean, with friendly hosts. Breakfast was ok rather than outstanding. The main positive... More

This B & B does not have much of a sea view or comfort to offer. Stayed here whilst walking the SWCP. Our room was very dated and in need of an update to say the least, extremely shabby for the cost in comparison to the previous five BnB's on the coast path. Shower went cold and I could not... More

Stayed here to celebrate our 25 th wedding anniversary. Welcoming, relaxed, fantastic breakfast menu. Freshly cooked! Our room was really clean and comfortable. Great lounge. Pauline and Pippa are great hosts and helped to make our weekend. Thank you
