Such a friendly place! Nikki was very welcoming, and available via text for any queries. The building is quite old and has its quirks, but lots of effort has been made with the decor to make it feel cosy. Our bathroom was across the corridor, which I actually quite liked - then the shower doesn't steam up the room etc.... More

What a lovely welcome we had on arrival at the Arches. A nice cup of tea and cake and a chat outside with Nikki the landlady. Then up to our room. The Red Room, a good size and a huge comfortable bed. The only drawbacks were that the bathroom was across the hall from the bedroom but that didn't bother... More

We wanted to discover the south west of England after a busy few days London. We checked into Nikkis B&B at the last minute. As soon as we were welcomed with scones and tea we felt like we were at an Aunties home. The room was sooo comfortable we didnt feel like leaving, it was a refuge where time stood... More

We found The Arches an ideal setting to explore Cornwall. Ideal places near by for walking your dog. Our room was clean and spacious for my family. The breakfasts were very tasty, with many choices. Nikki went to great lengths to make us feel welcome. Giving us idea's of places to visit, during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble.

We have stayed with at the Arches for one night during the August Bank Holiday weekend. We have particularly appreciated the “feel at home” sentiment that you get and we have appreciated even more that Nikki waited for us although we’ve arrived quite late. Since we were 3 adults we’ve got the family room on the top floor which is... More

Very welcoming and helpful owner. Nikki has gone to great lengths to ensure everything matches in the colour coordinated rooms, even down to the shower gel, e.g. blue in blue room and green in green room! Good breakfast , and allergies well catered for. Very clean. Many thanks.

This was our 4th stay with Nikki and Kendra and as usual we were spoilt rotten and treated like members of the family. Nothing is too much trouble for Nikki who has an extensive knowledge of the surrounding area and Cornwall in general. The Attic room is huge, beds very comfortable and the facilities second to none, could have stood... More
