The rooms are lovely and perfectly maintained, breakfast is served in a lovely bright conservatory, there's a cosy little communal room with TV and a small bar, there's... More

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

My daughter Sarah and I stayed for one night while visiting Heligan gardens. We immediately noticed the lovely Bhudist style front garden so it was a pleasure to meet Peter and chat about Thailand. We stayed in Sweet Briar which was very comfortable and had a great bathroom. Peter is a great host and very friendly,our full English breakfast cooked... More

Bank holiday, struggling to find a room, found a nice private, single here, behind garage but worked well for me as very quiet. Host was exceedingly helpful as he was going out for the whole afternoon and evening and I didn't arrive till 6pm. He simply organised to leave the key for me!! Very trusting. Very comfortable and very reasonable... More

I can easily recommend The Elms Guest House! It has a great location, parking onsite, a delicious breakfast, absolutely wonderful hosts and a very comfortable house. It is great for visiting the coast, the Eden Project, and The Lost Gardens of Heligan. I almost skipped the Eden Project but Peter was so passionate about it I just had to check... More
