Overall brilliant b&b! Barbara is a wonderful host and there is no end to her helpfulness! Easy access as straight of an A road. Delicious full English breakfast served with a smile! We had the lamorna room for 2 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit! Barbara's knowledge of a local pub (the Polgooth inn) was greatly appreciated as we... More

Immaculately clean, lovely hosts, beautiful garden, delicious breakfast, good location. I would highly recommend this place. Biggest, most beautiful lilies I've ever seen. Only 10 minutes walk into town.

The minute I walked in, I felt entirely at home - Barbara is a wonderful hostess with local knowledge galore - ask her anything! The room was lovely: immaculately clean and very comfortable, with my own private bathroom which was an added bonus. I was travelling alone, but if you do happen to be travelling with a partner and prefer... More

Loved The Gables. Food was superb, room small but comfortable and everything immaculately clean. Barbara and Mike were hospitable, friendly, welcoming and full of information. Lovely garden. Cornwall is easier with a car, but the walk into town was pleasant and we were able to get buses to take us everywhere. Hard to leave!

Myself and my husband spent a lovely week at the Gables. Barbara and Mike are a fabulous couple who greeted us like long lost friends. They gave suggestions for places to visit during our stay that we hadn't thought of, they have a great knowledge of the area. The breakfasts were amazing, I adored the pancakes especially. Our room was... More

Very clean, fresh hot breakfast. Hosts very helpful. Lovely scenery from the window. Room was small but adequate and bed comfortable. Busy road though quite at night. Bus to Eden project or station across the road. 30 minutes walk to station. Not always easy to get a taxi so if you want one book one in advance. Trains frequent and... More

We have just returned from a lovely few days in Cornwall. Our stay at The Gables was a very pleasant one all down to the lovely owners Barbara and Mike. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. The house was lovely and the garden was beautiful. A big plus was that the guest house had... More

I was looking for a late room for a business trip with just two days notice, somewhere to sleep after a long drive but not too expensive. I found the Gables Guest House on line and called them. They were very helpful and friendly and had the personal service a hotel does not have. They had a perfect single room... More

The owners were very welcoming and friendly. They easily coped when we requested to change rooms to one with a bath and did it with a smile on their face. The Guest House is very clean and comfortable, and breakfast was superb. Would highly recommend!!!
