My husband and I stayed in Althea Library for 3 nights in January. We chose this place based on Trip Advisor reviews and it certainly did not disappoint. We stayed in the Yellow Room (we wanted the Puffin Suite but it was fully booked). The room was spotlessly clean and was cleaned to an extremely high standard every day. The... More

Absolutely amazing. We were looked after from the moment we arrived. Great location being a short walk from the centre of Padstow. Lovely room and fabulous breakfast. Geoff's granola is amazing too :-).

Too good for words!! Everything and much more than expected from the highest standard of B&B! We loved it and it's hosts, you will too!! Positioned well, for going in to town or out for walks and visiting the surrounding area.

This was a return visit after a very long gap - it was good before, but is now superb. Very comfortable, of course, but so thoughtfully and practically set out and run. There was plenty of 'flat' space in our room for our belongings - a rarity! Breakfast was Superb! There is a very comfortable lounge area too. We only... More

Second visit, but just as amazing and memorable. This is the perfect retreat to get away from it all. They truly cannot do enough for you and welcome you back like long lost friends. Beautifully clean and the best breakfast ever. Wouldn't think of going anywhere else now!

We stayed at Althea Library for one night while we were in Padstow. The hotel is well situated for the shops and the harbour and for the various RS eateries. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful with our various questions about Padstow. The breakfast was first rate. Our room was very comfortable and clean - the bed was very... More

We booked 2 nights at Althea Library B&B so that we could visit the Padstow Christmas Festival. We were welcomed to this very cosy cottage with coffee and cake in the lounge where we had time to relax and read some of the local information leaflets. Our room was very well appointed with all the little extras you could wish... More

A very relaxed 3 nights spent in this charming house. A short walk to the harbour and the restaurants. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice and our room was cosy and comfortable No complaints and would certainly return if in the area. Highly recommended

Situated in a very good position within easy walking distance of the town and with parking which is a great bonus. The owners are friendly and offer many extras in the room which were all much appreciated. Fresh milk in a 'fridge together with a good range of quality teas and coffees, bottled water and even some delicious chocolates! A... More
