SVH is a warm & friendly B&B in a great & peaceful location with private parking. 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

On a five day holiday around Cornwall with nowhere booked.

Last night we stayed here by chance. We had been to a wonderful show at the Minnack theatre while staying in... 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

My sisters and I have just had a lovely night at the Seaview in Porthcurno. Nothing was too much trouble for our kind hosts. They even gave us little treats like wine and chocolate to take down to the Minack Theatre as well as driving us back to our car when our taxi didn't arrive - all for no charge.The... More

Even before we entered I was a little concerned by the badly worn Visit Britain star grading sign outside....how many years had it been there? As we entered we were hit by the smell of damp dirty dog and a wall full of certificates pronouncing gold awards, breakfast awards...all out of date and I realise now not even awarded to... More

I stayed here for 1 night while walking the coast path. It was very good value because they were doing a special deal for October and the owner very kindly picked me up from the end of the walk and made a sandwich for me because I was fairly done in at the end of a long day. Comfortable room... More

Did not get a friendly welcome or send off here: at breakfast I overheard a guest say to her companion "I don't think the owner likes people." Place is full of stuffed animals and odd bric-a-brac. Would do in a pinch only. Pluses: the room was clean and Sea View is close to the Minack Theater.

Loved every minute here. The girls are wonderful hosts and are doing a fantastic job to the property. The garden is looking brilliant after being explained all the work they have done and what a hard winter it was for them. Lovely clean bedroom well finished and I had a good night sleep. The smell of dogs???? No idea as... More

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...
