If you don't mind crossing a landing to your private shower/loo room this is the place for you. The rooms are light and airy and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is cooked to order and fresh fruit and yogurt is available alongside cereals of your choice. The rooms have tea making facilities and fridge. I believe one of the 4 rooms does... More

We staggered into The Copper Kettle after our first day of Coastal Path walking, tired and footsore. What a pleasant, welcoming place it was. Our room was bright and cheery, and had tea/coffee/cocoa and even biscuits. The bed was delightful. The location is just a few blocks from the charming harbor; so nice to walk around on a summer evening.... More

A comfortable bed and breakfast in the centre of Porthleven -, friendly welcome and close to all amenities. The breakfast was delicious - lovely fruit and freshly cooked 'full English' Some great restaurants within a few minutes walk of the Copper Kettle.

This is a superb "B&B". We had to visit this area of Cornwall for a couple of days and were very lucky to pick on the Copper Kettle for our 2 night stay. Our welcome was warm and friendly; everywhere was spotlessly clean; the bed was comfortable; and there were excellent choices for breakfast. The fridge in the bedroom contained... More

Many reviewers have mentioned how warm and welcoming the owner is, and I totally agree. In addition, I appreciated the refrigerator in the room, and bottled water in the fridge. The breakfast room has a large selection of books on Cornwall which were very helpful. The parking, though tight, was very convenient. We hope to return someday!

Lovely Bed and Breakfast with very clean and comfortable room, great breakfasts, easy off road parking and a very friendly hostess. Very good value for money and the equal of several places we have stayed costing twice as much. If you are walkers like us then it is a great base for exploring the SW Coastal Path with easy bus...

We were made to feel very welcome and breakfast... More

My mother, boyfriend and I stayed for a long weekend and enjoyed our stay so much we wished we could have extended it. The bedrooms were spotlessly clean, bright and airy complemented with an excellent full English breakfast every morning, cooked by the friendly and helpful owner. Located in a quiet yet beautiful picturesque part of Cornwall within walking distance... More

Having seen the good reviews on tripadvisor for The Copper Kettle I booked a 3 day break here in the middle of August. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable, breakfast was excellent and it was great to have a reserved parking space just outside. The owner is friendly and is happy to give you tips on places... More
