We stayed in the attic suite which was great as gave my sixteen year old son some privacy in his own room. Great facilities in the room which had it's own fridge and microwave as well as the usual tea making facilities. The breakfast was fantastic with a great choice including hogs pudding (happy hubby). Room was clean, very comfortable... More

We stayed here for one night with our 3 older children to break our journey up. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast choice is made the night before for each person and then cooked to perfection using fresh local produce. We especially enjoyed the duck eggs!

Great room with four poster bed. Nikki is great at getting the guests to talk to each other and breakfast is really good. Its just like being at home but not having to cook and clean. This is our second time to the Arches and we will be back.

We stayed here on our way to Lands end. The room was beautiful with a lovely bed with fresh clean pressed linen. The furniture was beautiful antique furniture and decorated with a lot of taste. The breakfast was excellent and Nikki is clearly and rightly very proud of the Arches and this shows in her attitude to people and the... More

We spent a pleasant couple of days here. Our room was spacious and pleasant..we were in the attic so we did suffer the occasional bumped head! Breakfast was delightful...scrambled eggs with clotted cream - delicious! The building is in need of the odd lick of paint but Nikki's friendly manner more than makes up for that. The car park is...

Thank's for having us. Such a warm welcoming and attentive host! Fun idea with calling the rooms after colors instead of just a room number. Clean and friendly. Best Black pudding yet this trip. Would we come back? Yes!

However Nikki, the lovely proprietor of the Arches came to pick us up. We stayed in the green room which had a fabulous... More
