We only spent one night here but were made to feel very welcome, with a tray of coffee and biscuits on our arrival.Quaint room, comfy bed but small shower. Superb breakfast in morning. We wish we had stayed here for our four nights in Cornwall rather than the one.

My boyfriend and I booked this b&b on late rooms.com. The room advertised looked beautiful. Unfortunately we had been shoved in the downstairs back bedroom. Throughly disappointed with the b&b! I could hardly sleep due to the creepy flooring the room above had, quite obviously their toilet was above my bed as I could hear Everything, not only that, the... More

This B and B is well presented, spotlessly clean and characterful. The owners are pleasant and cater to your needs and the rooms are beautiful. Sadly due to no windows in the bathrooms all the ensuites have extractor fans which are loud! We were woken up at 630am on a Sunday. The breakfast is locally sourced but sadly it was... More

Dear traveller, Thank you for taking the time to post a review and we thank you for the positive things you have said. We are sorry things were not entirely to your satisfaction. We are surprised you were awoken so early and can sympathize, but extractor fans are required by building regulations. With regard to your breakfast, we do not... More

The Chapel Guest House is a lovely, charming and quiet place. Rooms are very clean, spacious and full of character. Wendy and Chris are happy to chat and recommend nice places to eat and visit. Delicious breakfast, made all from local products. Full Cornish breakfast and local jams were the highlights. Long drive from London paid off. Great place to... More

We thought the Chapel was a delightful conversion with tastefully decorated rooms. We stayed for 2 nights. We were in room 2 and weren't bothered by the noise of the road, yes we heard the odd car, but it wasn't too loud. The room was very clean and spacious. Breakfast was served between 8 and 9 and was delicious an... More

We picked this place at short notice off Late Rooms because it looked like an interesting building. It was the best place we stayed on our whole trip. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The breakfasts were all local produce and they happily supplied gluten-free bread and sausages (I asked for the bread at booking). The hosts were very... More

Chris and Wendy have found the perfect balance in offering a fantastic service without imposing. A smashing selection for breakfast including a full Cornish. Set in a handy location for the Eden Project but also close to Charlestown for a good piece of Cornwall's history. My only gripe was it could do with double glazing as close to a busy... More

I visited this hotel with my partner a few weeks ago and had an amazing time, really nice hotel and nice little towns around the area. Will be going back. I would advice anyone to stay there as the service was excellent.
