The hostess was very hospitable and friendly. Breakfast was wonderful. The room was nice decorated and cosy. We liked these house. It was like childhood fairy house. Important - is the parking area. Many Thanks!

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

Had a fantastic stay at the Arches. Nikki (and Kendra the dog) made us feel really welcome. Great breakfast with a lot of choice. Cream tea on arrival. Excellent value for money. Will definitely stay there again if we are in the area.

Stayed two nights in green room, which had en suite bathroom. Convenient for visiting the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, and Lanhydrock House. A nice big bedroom. Very helpful and friendly hostess, who went out of her way to help us with her local knowledge. Wonderful breakfasts. Noise from the road at night. Slept with earplugs in. Getting... More

Nikki was very friendly and the breakfasts were amazing. We could help ourselves to toast, cereals, juices etc before (and after as well) she served up a delicious English breakfast. The room and bathroom were all very clean and there was sufficient storage space. I stayed in the red room and there was even a hot water bottle in one... More
