We were directed to The Arches from several other B&Bs that were already full. It was getting late and we nearly missed the sign, but the massive arches of therailway viaduct gave us a good clue where to look. It proved to be a lucky find. The proprietor was friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. Better than that, it... More

The Arches was an excellent, value for money base for visiting the Eden Project and only a short walk away from St Austell town centre. Nikki welcomed us on arrival with a cream tea which was a pleasant surprise. Our Jack Russell dog was made to feel very welcome and, with our permission, given several dog biscuits during our stay.... More

Nikki makes one feel very welcome and goes out of her way to provide a relaxed atmosphere in this B+B. A wonderfully comfortable four-poster bed in a room, with a decently-sized TV and a view of the eponymous viaduct arches, plus a great breakfast added to the charm. Not very far to walk into the centre of town, you'll be... More

We stayed here to use as a base to visit places like Padstow on the north side and Polperro on the south side which were within easy reach We found this b&b a home from home and we're happy with our stay, nice friendly service, comfortable room and good breakfast with a wide choice. A short stroll from St Austell... More

lovely room, welcome host, delicious breakfast especially scrambled eggs with clotted cream. Coffee was good too. Spotless room and a quiet nights sleep, lovely little touches like the tubs of milk in their own fridge in the room, mints in reception, generous breakfast options.

Had a terrific break here at this B&B, cosy and full of character. The ambience is very friendly and relaxing. It has a lovely homely feel and I'd recommend it to anybody. It's in a convenient location close to the town centre, but quiet and peaceful. Without doubt you'll be properly looked after!

My husband & I recently had the pleasure of staying at The Arches B & B. Nikki the owner made us very welcome, she is a lovely lady. On arrival there were fresh scones, jam & cream waiting for us. We felt very much at home, Nikki has spent a lot of time and effort with her accommodation, colour co-ordinating... More

A lovely stay, great breakfast, lovely large room and a really friendly host who had some lovely pets. The B&B was ideally situated for our trips to the Eden project and the Gardens of Heligan, I really recommend a stay, my only regret was that we only stayed two nights

A beautiful homely B&B, we felt very welcomed by Nikki and her very cute cat Frits and dog Kendra. It is a very nice and relaxed atmosphere, we had a yummy breakfast and a very good nights sleep in the comfiest beds ever! I look forward to staying here again in the future. Thank you!
