I was made to feel very welcome by the friendly hosts. My single room in the annexe was private and cosy, and the breakfast was well cooked and tasty. I visited the Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project which were close by. Highly recommended!

What a wonderful hotel. The service was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Peter made our stay as comfortable and memorable as possible with a great welcome. Lovely room and great breakfast. Perfect location for exploring the local area. Would definitely recommend and will be staying again.

Lovely atmosphere, well sited for getting around the area. Room and food were lovely - but icing on the cake was the welcome and advice from our hosts which enabled us to make the most of a brief trip - we managed Charlestown, the Eden Project (fabulous), Fowey, Padstow and the coast road - lovely.! Thank you both x

Thank you to Peter and Jane for our lovely (but all too short) stay at The Elms. The Elms is very well situated to explore the area including Lost Gardens of Heligan (my favourite!) and the Eden Project, both of which are a few minutes away. We spent an evening at Charlestown which is a beautiful now dis-used port transporting... More
