Suzanne & Stephen are excellent hosts..... welcoming and helpful. Our room was delightful and very well appointed. There were extras we appreciated such a bottled water and wifi. We also really enjoyed the tasty full English breakfasts. We would love to make a return visit and thoroughly recommend others to stay at Tinhay Mill.

Owners couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The room was nice, very clean and comfortable (a bit cold) but i did ask for a tour and the rooms that were available to view were a lot nicer. I will know for next time that i want the one behind the reception on the ground floor!... More

Stayed here 1 night while on a business trip and didn't want the usual Premier Inn type place. Really nice people, really nice place and GREAT breakfast! Stayed in the Tamar room which has plenty of room and en-suite. Glad shower-gel / shampoo etc was provided as forgot to bring any and the Kit Kat went down well.

This is a well located guesthouse with great access to both the north and south Devon and Cornish coasts as well to other places of interest, It is a charming place to stay in a pleasant and quiet location but is convenient to the main A30. The room was very comfortable with lots of thoughtful little extras. The breakfasts were... More

Went here for a couple of nights and I couldn't fault it. All the other reviews were spot on. It was clean, the breakfast was lovely and the hosts were so friendly. Would highly recommend this place. Really was excellent.

Beautifully presented B&B in heart of Lifton only a short hop from the A30 and within easy reach of many of Devon and Cornwall's places of interest. Stayed for a recent weekend and was made to feel very welcome with nothing too much trouble. Room was very well equipped and spotless, tv a little on the small side but due... More

The quiet location is a perfect base for exploring Cornwall and The Moors. Suzanne and Stephen are friendly, welcoming hosts, making our stay even more enjoyable.

Stayed here for 2 nights on the way back from Cornwall to avoid the end of half term traffic and explore the area. Padstow, Boscastle, Tintagel and Bude are all relatively near making this a superb location and convenient for the A30 yet the Guesthouse is in a lovely quiet location. We stayed in the Wolf room which was beautifully... More
