We have recently returned from a lovely two night stay at this hotel. The hotel was perfectly located for us - lovely and quiet. The hotel itself was spotlessly clean, the staff very friendly, the breakfast was fantastic, bed very comfy and the shower was super - only 1 VERY MINOR point - the shower could do with a rack...

We stayed in June 2015 and found Jonathan to be the perfect Host. The Summerhouse is tastefully furnished and decorated, extremely clean and comfortable, very classy. The breakfasts were delicious and filling with a variety of choice, could not ask for more. We loved all the little extras in the room and being able to make a tea or coffee... More

The summer house is an amazing house, very nice furnished and decorated as well as a stunning garden. The owners put a lot of love in it and you can feel that, when you stay there. There is a very nice breakfast with fresh fruit every day and (among other warm options) a very good scrambled egg. On departing day... More

We loved our stay at the Summer House. The sitting room and breakfast room was beautifully appointed. Breakfast was great, the bed was comfortable, towels were thick and although the shower was a little small, the water pressure was fantastic. Kat and Johnathon were terrific hosts and looked after all our needs. I would highly recommend this accomodation to anyone... More

Clean, but small accommodation, tiny bathroom, and wardrobe only big enough for a weekend. The breakfast was adequate, full Cornish breakfast consisted of One tomato two rashers of bacon, a few tinned mushrooms, and a fried egg. Over priced.....more like a B and B than a Hotel
