We had a very enjoyable weekend break at this lovely B&B, The food was of a very good standard, the rooms were all very comfortable and our hosts were really nice hard working people. My mum and the rest of the family loved the setting and Ashton had a great time playing with Kernow. Many thanks to you both for... More

We wanted to stay near the Eden Project and highly recommend this B&B. The owners are still renovating it and it will be lovely when it's finished. The garden will be spectacular with a lovely with its summer house and Japanese style garden - with a wilder area at the back by the stream. The owners are applying for a... More

Well we stayed at the Waterwheel last month and found the accommodation very nice and the couple running the Inn were extremely helpful and friendly and would always do more for us if we so wished. . I find if you treat people how you wish to be treated there is not a problem!

I have mixed feelings about this place, I stayed here with a large groups of friends during April. The decor is lovely and the rooms are all very clean and well maintained, although a little on the small side. The owners are friendly, and were on hand to recommend good places to visit and eat at. A slight word of... More

I am glad that you enjoyed several aspects of your stay with us but obviously disappointed that you found some aspects of your stay less enjoyable. We hope we have resolved the Wifi issue by putting an extender on the landing and as we have super fast broadband this should mean that our guests should enjoy a good service. We... More

Stayed here for 3 nights for my husband 60th birthday treat. I can honestly say I would definitely recommend The Water Wheel Inn 😊 clean, lovely decor and very welcoming owners Francesca & Mark. Breakfast was in the conservatory and plenty of it which set you up for the day. We had a fantastic break thank you both.

I went to Cornwall for a week as I had to go to a wedding nearby. The hotel was lovely, beautiful location. The food was excellent with a range of dishes to suit everybody. Would definitely stay there again.

As it was my partner's 60th birthday I decided to treat her to 4 days in Cornwall. We decided to stay at the waterwheel inn. I can honestly say its the best decision we've ever made! The owners Mark and Francesca are very welcoming and offer a very relaxed atmosphere in this country inn. We were allocated room 6 which... More

Having returned yesterday from a great four day break to St Austell, I would like to thank our hosts for a wonderful stay at their beautiful Inn. The bedroom (2) is indeed beautifully kept, overlooking the garden and patio. Tranquil! Breakfast is more than enough to set you up for the day. Delicious, tasty, good variety and served in the...

Delightful hotel with a warm welcome and delicious food, huge breakfasts, which kept us going all day, the whole hotel was immaculate, with lovely decor, home from home. The restaurant is not open on sunday evening, the hosts were more than happy to recommend some where else to go.

We stayed in March 2015 for two nights. We really enjoyed it, lovely immaculate room, delicious breakfast. We ate there both nights and were pleased with flavours, quality and portions (generous!) nice selection of local beers at the bar too. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the pet dog and cat great characters! We would definitely return.
