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.

Wonderful, idyllic setting with very welcoming hosts and fantastic food. There are country walks right behind the inn. Dog friendly too! I was only there for two nights mid - week but would happily have stayed for months. The restaurant menu is extensive and priced very competitively for the amount and quality of food served. The decor is lovely and... More

Having recently moved into the area we were very pleased to find this lovely place to eat, on our last visit we were not let down, having been there four times in total you always get the same excellent quality food and atmosphere. You are always welcomed, never hurried and always get good service, definitely be back.

We returned for a second break here and were astounded at the wonderful changes Mark and Francesca have made to this lovely place. Again, superb food, wonderful welcome and the delightful Kernow keen to accompany us on our walks around the grounds. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a central location for The Eden Project and the Lost... More

This was our first visit to The Waterwheel Inn and arriving on a rather wet day we were pleasantly surprised to find a smart clean entrance and a large bar/lounge area, (good start). We had room 5 on the first floor via a fresh and nicely decorated landing. The room itself whilst not large was clean with lovely quality linen... More

We have just returned from Cornwall after staying at this Hotel. We can only echo the excellent reviews that have already been posted. Lovely relaxed vibe to the place and Mark and Francesca, Kernow and Bailey provided a very warm welcome. We will definitely return and also recommend your Hotel to others .

Really pleased with our stay. Tastefully decorated interior and friendly owners, plus a very good, locally sourced breakfast and fascinating garden. The restaurant is also recommended. Truly an excellent base for exploring Cornwall.
