We were lucky enough to stay in the accommodation above the cafe on middle Street for a long weekend while celebrating my husbands 40th birthday. The room was clean and cosy with a VERY comfortable bed. The mattress and pillows were so soft it was like sleeping on a cloud. The room was cleaned every day with fresh towels provided... More

We stayed here as part of the very reasonable Rick Stein accommodation for 2 nights with 2 nights food at his seafood restaurant and Bistro. The food didn't disappoint . The room around the corner in Middle Street from the restaurants was small but cosy. Stylish in nautical colours, comfy bed. The bathroom was also small although new furnishings, we... More

We stayed in a 'snug' room above the Cafe for 2 nights b&b. I thought reasonably priced. Room was clean and just perfect for us. It was facing the street but was not too noisy. Breakfast downstairs in the Cafe was great - really good food and really relaxed atmosphere. Cafe is situated right in the middle of Padstow, parking... More

Nicely furnished, comfortable bed with en suite. Really appreciate the thermos of cold milk for coffee and tea. Breakfast, downstairs in the cafe was delicious. Glad we were there the week before school holidays. Quiet and calm.

This accommodation has just 3 rooms and is above Rick Stein's café in Middle Street. We stayed in the Courtyard room which was large, spotlessly clean, well furnished with its own en suite. Breakfast is taken downstairs in the café and is cooked to order. Really good location in the heart of Padstow and a 2 minute walk to the... More

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
