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!

We booked this B&B for one night as we were going to a concert at the Eden Project. We booked a taxi for the 4 mile journey but all firms were fully booked for the return journey. However Nikki, the lovely proprietor of the Arches came to pick us up. We stayed in the green room which had a fabulous... More

We had a wonderful 2 night stay with our 2 dogs. The location is very close to town but right on the Clay Trail which is perfect for dog walking. Nikki is so lovely we felt right at home and her cooked breakfasts are brilliant! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a nice view through the viaduct arches... More

We stayed for one night. Nikki was very friendly and welcoming and went out of her way to ensure the room was ready for us early as we were going to a wedding and reception! Delicious breakfast and a homely clean environment.

We stayed at the Arches for five nights. Nikki the owner is very welcoming and friendly. We stayed in the four poster bed room with ensuite, this was a large room, very comfy bed and a large flat screen TV. The bed linen and towels were spotless which is a very big plus point for us. The breakfasts that Nikki... More

Our 3rd visit to Nikki and her welcoming B&B. As always the standard of our bedroom was high with a good sized room, ample bathroom space and comfortable bed. The breakfasts are exactly what you order, scrumptious and made fresh with high quality ingredients. We have already booked for our 4th visit next year!
