This is a B&B of the highest quality in a little town which is well worth visiting.It is in the old part of the town,quite elevated,and my top floor room had a sea view over the other houses.All the buildings here are on quite a small scale,so that obese luggage(or visitors) could be a problem .Tim,the owner,is very ready to...

This place is very close to all the beaches and major attaractions and places to eat. The hosts, Tim and Shelley are great and give good recommendations on places to see and eat at. The rooms are small, but well kept and cosy. The only change that would like to see is a change of the kettle in the room.... More

Best guesthouse I have ever stayed in. What a wonderful experience. Tim and Shelley are fabulous hosts and the rooms and breakfasts are magnificent. Cornerways is situated about a two minute walk to the harbour beach and shops and about a one minute walk to the Island. Daphne du Maurier also stayed here in the 1940's. I'll be back again... More

What a fantastic experience! Tim and everyone else at Cornerways really went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and special. We were greeted by Tim who showed is to our room Mandaley.

My family stayed for 6 nights on a strong recommendation. Cornerways exceeded expectations. Our top floor room was clean with tv/fridge/hot drinks/en-suite and a spectacular view of the harbour. Breakfasts were delicious and freshly cooked to order. Tim & Shelley were wonderful hosts.... but more than that, they even allowed us to hold our wedding reception in the breakfast room.... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in late October 2014. We had booked a number of rooms with some friends to attend a wedding. In our view, this is a perfect B & B and you couldn't ask for anything else. The rooms were clean and tidy, and were made up every day. Tea/Coffee/TV/clock in all the rooms. Located in... More

A happy anniversary weekend at the lovely Cornerways, my little home from home. A lovely stay in the Sandra room, it was beautiful. It was lovely to come down to breakfast which was delicious. Cornerways feels like a home from home in our lovely stives

My husband and I stayed here with my parents, and admittedly picked it because we learned that Daphne Du Maurier had stayed here as well. Tim was fantastic - could recommend lots of restaurants and things to do and made superb breakfasts (you really could have anything you wanted, cooked to order). The place was kept immaculately clean and each... More

The good - friendly people, appealing dining room, lavish breakfast, nice location in the old part of town (a maze of cobblestone streets that can be confusing on arrival). The not so good - the room furnishings were tacky, the bed was hard, there was a lot of mildew on the outside wall in the bathroom and the toilet was... More
