We recently stayed at the Sea View for one night during a week walking the coastal path. It is very convenient for the Minack theatre, Porthcurno beach and the Telegraph museum. The b and b is comfortable and clean and we had a warm welcome - when I mentioned we were going to the Minack, she lent us cushions and... More

Nice basic B&B that stands out because of its hostesses, Pippa and Pauline. The house is a bit of a madhouse with things going on here there and everywhere, but if you need something Pippa is right there to help. Need a table at the Logan Rock Inn, a ride to the Logan Rock, a ride back, a sandwich for... More

Just returned from 2 nights at Sea View. They were fully booked on the Sunday so had a twin room which had a beautiful en-suite. Next day transferred us into a double. Both rooms were spotlessly clean which is what matters. Second night we visited Minack theatre and in the morning were asked if there was anything they could get... More

Very convenient for people going to the Minack Theatre. There is no need to park at the Theater and it is nice to walk the trail that leaves nearby. The rooms are clean and we loved the nice breakfast.

Fantastic Location, Warm welcome with Cold Cans of Beer! Secure Parking. Arrived on a hot sunny day. Rooms just right size. Shower a bit limited with space but did the job. Short walk to the Beach. Pub on way back. Slept very well - comfy beds with clean linen. Breakfast cooked to order. Plenty of it. Highly recommend for a... More

We have just returned from a weekend visit to Porthcurno and stayed at the Seaview. We were made very welcome at this B&B. My friend and I shared an attic room with en-suite shower and toilet. The room was clean and beds very comfortable.. The Seaview is an old house with character and has a lounge with TV, reading material... More

The owners are very hospitable, welcoming and take great care making every effort to ensure a perfect stay with loads of helpful info on the local attractions. Our en-suite room was lovely & clean and the quality bed ensured a great nights' sleep. We... More

Clean comfortable room, beautiful bathroom, no evidence of dogs in the property. My room had a door linking it to the one next door, which really wasn't soundproof - not ideal but didn't cause me a problem. My deposit was taken twice from my credit card in error but the extra money was refunded in cash without question. I was... More

Ideally placed for the local pub, the telegraph museum and the Minack but from the outside it looks a bit shabby including the rusty old 5 star award plaque. The terraced garden no longer has any plants but an array of areas of multicoloured wood chip and a few strings of christmas lights. Obviously no one is interested in the... More
