We stayed in the snug room ( called Thrift). Very small room but it was well appointed and the bed was comfy. Only criticisms were it was a bit embarrassing to stay in a room called Thrift when we thought we were treating ourselves! And the bathroom sliding door wasn't fully frosted so not much toilet privacy! Still, as part... More

We were lucky to get a crooked little room at Rick Stein’s Café for a single night while driving around England in the summer. We only ended up at his hotel/café because the manager of the restaurant at the significantly larger and more expensive St Petrocs (also Rick Stein, like everything in Padstow) met us in the lobby while we...

My partner and I stayed a night here with high expectations, specifically to sample the Rick Stein brand, although for me it was also a return down memory lane of holidays spent over in Rock learning to water ski in the Camel estuary (at high tide only !) during the early seventies. Finding the Café is not for the feint... More

My wife and I have been holidaying in Padstow and in particular at Rick Stein's B&B or The Seafood for over a decade so it doesn't come easy to post some observations on here as many of our previous stays have been outstanding. The pricing at Rick's B&B is at the premium end of what you pay in Padstow so... More

I have been staying at Stein's for over decade. I like to stay in the Courtyard room because it is larger and quieter than other rooms. In previous visits I have been more than happy with the accommodation at the cafe - hence my return. However, my recent experience was much less satisfactory. The room was looking extremely tired and... More

We booked a 2 night package with meals in the cafe and St Petroc's Bistro. When we arrived in mid afternoon the cafe was shut and no one around to greet us. We enquirer at the shop next door and they kindly rang the Seafood restaurant where apparently we were supposed to check in. Improvement point- Steins should make this... More

I recently stayed for 2 x nights on a B & B basis at the padstow Rick steins cafe with relatives. We booked 2 x rooms, The Thrift and the Fennel.

Overall we had a very good time and if we had had the room of our choice it would have been right up there. Chose your room carefully. We were in Almora and the kitchen extractor fans were right outside our window. The fans run from 6 15 in the morning and are switched off at 12 15 at night.

Friendly staff, but I think the accommodation is way over priced. We stayed in the court yard room, which was a lovely size and it had everything you needed; but it was very warm in there, noisy especially at night time. The clanging and banging from not only the customers but the staff as well when they was cleaning and... More
