I almost don't want to tell anyone about this place, as it was perfect for us and I want it to stay available for me to use. Breakfast was awesome! Fantastic homemade jams and marmalade. The Landlady is so nice! Very helpful and personable. Thanks for a great stay!

Three of us stayed here for one night, to get the morning train. The location is excellent - on the main street adjacent to the station, near the bus station, and an easy walk to the boat to the Scilly Isles. However, the accommodation itself was showing a combination of age, and neglect. Breakfast is included - avoid the sausages... More

Not a very good greeting.. Or very friendly. Decoration poor.. Everything seems old.. Even the fish in the fish tank which needs a good clean out....But good location..would just recommend it if your on a tight budget . However there are better places for a few pounds more.

I couldn't believe the smell as you enter and the room wasn't much better. Had to go to the local shop to buy some air fresheners. The bed linen was soiled the view from the window was of the station wall. If you like traffic noise you'll feel right at home as the guest house is on the main road... More

the whole place smells of damp the bedding wasn't clean. the fish tank in the dinning room looks as if it hadn't been cleaned for a couple of years (poor fish) the only good thing is location couldn't be better for trains, buses, shops.

2 egg and bacon sandwiches and 2 small coffees cost £13.80 to take away. Thats not right! And the fact that I asked the price and he wouldnt tell me until after he made it was wrong. I couldn't even say that I payed for service as the moody one word answers made me feel almost uneasy. Definitely will not... More

Only stopped one night and on the plus side the location, within throwing distance of the railway station, it is convenient. The breakfast was fine, except for the lack of real butter on the table - I could tell it most certainly wasn't! The room was in real need of some attention, the bathroom too. As with another reviewer it... More

I have seen several bad reviews where people have complained about poor cleaning and a smell of fried food lingering in the room. I can say that I did not regonise any of the problems described. First of all, its location is very good. Directly opposite the railways. The room (a double room with bathroom) was clean and much bigger... More

I have recently completed an End-to-End cycle ride, and this is one of the B&Bs I stayed in. My plan was to stay in privately owned facilities, rather than chains. There was a place to park my bike overnight, under the stairs, nice and secure, and the location next to the Rail Station is excellent and easy to find, and... More

The room was small and the decor terrible. Oh, and the shower cubicle was actually IN the bedroom! Surely a health and safety issue right next to an electric socket? The level of cleanliness was poor and due to the cafe downstairs, there was a lingering smell of fried food in the room. If I hadn't booked and paid through... More
