Probably the best hotel in the world so didn't want to spoil the unique beauty of The Abbey. Theo and his family are amazing hosts from the afternoon tea on arrival to the fab traditional English Breakfast options. All the rooms are one off tastefully done decor and the drawing room with an honesty bar is magnificent. Highly recommended by... More

We had a bit of trouble finding the hotel, due to our GPS wanted us to go up the slipway that was covered with water! Once we arrived the staff was very welcoming and when we saw our room we felt like we were in the Royal Suite. We had a huge room with lovely antiques and a view of... More

Amazing ,fabulous and just adored the hotel. We stayed in the apartment for one night B & B with two dogs on our way to the Isles of Scilly. Looking on internet the local ,regular B & B's were asking same price , however, they looked so poor and totally inadequate in comparison. The whole place was sumptuous with the... More

The Abby is that rare thing - a unique experience that defies comparisons. Our bedroom was so interesting with dozens of books, antique furniture and an intriguing hidden door to the bathroom which was large and excellently kitted out. The decor is wonderfully eclectic, as is the guests sitting room (with an honour bar) and breakfast room. Unfortunately the weather... More

The welcome was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean, spacious and quite quirky although at the top of the building (with no lift to help). Sadly breakfast was not great with leathery bacon and under-cooked sausages, also the toast was cold. Could not use wifi as it was not easy to access. It is ideally placed for... More

Upon arrival, we were told we were too early to have our room (fine), the young lady asked us what time we would like breakfast, we told her 8:00 and she was visibly distressed by this and said "ooooh...I don't know if we can do that". I'm thinking to myself - then why did you ask me? She wrote it... More

It was lovely to have an excuse to return to the warm welcome of the Abbey after a few years gap. Thadeus and Sally and the team are wonderful hosts, paying attention to guests' needs in a relaxed and friendly way. I found the hotel just the same in all the right ways: its luxurious eclecticism, attention to detail, comfort... More

We stayed for two nights before embarking on Scillonian for Scilly Isles. Gorgeous garden and drawing room, with excellent honesty bar. Lovely warm welcome and great recommendation/booking for dinner. Only complaint was lack of breakfast/ poor service on departure. We had asked reception twice in advance for an early breakfast as had to leave by 7.30 and was assured that... More

Quirky, quaint hotel. Close to shops, pubs, restaurants, railway and bus stations, Marazion and Mousehole. Wonderful warm welcome at the door by the owner and the offer of tea - lovely! Room 8 at the top of the property was large, beautifully decorated with views over the garden and with the widest, most comfortable bed. Large en-suite. Thaddeus and his... More
