“Outstanding value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

I booked a room very last minute for my mother and myself, and when we arrived we were amazed at the size of the room. We had a twin room with dressing room, separate lounge and two en suites, one with shower and one with bath, I think it was room 3. What I loved about the decor was that it was unique with beautiful art on the walls instead of the boring stuff you get in large hotels. The room was lovely and warm, with everything from sliced lemon in the fridge as requested to a small selection of DVDs to watch should you find yourself bored of an evening. Pub next door was pleasant and served decent pub grub. Also good quality organic toiletries and every amenity you can think of.
Breakfast was also superb, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs was probably the best I've had, and there were nice touches like homemade jams in dishes (not the plastic pots you sometimes get).
All this for £65.

Overall an excellent night's sleep and blinding value for money, will certainly book again next time I'm in the West Country.

We stayed at the Bissick Old Mill for a few days at the end of September and the only problem with the stay was we wish it had been longer. This is home from home with Cordon Bleu breakfast. Really cant recommend a better place place to stay. It is convenient for visits to almost anyway in Cornwall and located in a quiet pretty village with a pub next door serving excellent food. Patrick and Vivienne run a super B and B and would be happy to recommend it to anyone

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely but the Grannery is superb for those preferring a bit more privacy and inde...

I booked a night stay here via late rooms .com , travelled a long way down from llanelli, south west, wales to visit my nan who is in a nursing home in truro. Unfortunatley when I turned up with my 3 children including my 6 month old baby I was turned away as the owner said he had no idea we were booked in ???!! Despite my recieving of a reservation number 2 days prior. The landlord could not put us up which I didnt mind that much as the smell that greeted me when w e entered his property was an old musky odour he was totally useless when I asked if he knew of anywhere else local to stay. We set off on our way in Cornwall PEAK season with knowhere to stay and ended up in a hotel in Plymouth!! Bad Bad show!!!

When you first see Bissick mill you might think that you can overdo the old world rustic charm. The exterior could do with a little more t.l.c. A coat of paint on the garden furniture could make it more inviting and the plants need a bit of trimming. But after that you will get a warm welcome from Patrick and Vivienne. We had the granary for three nights. An upside down accommodation with the bedroom\bathroom downstairs , beware of the shower if like me you are over six feet tall,and a neat lounge and kitchenette upstairs, an ideal little hideaway for a romantic weekend. The food at breakfast was excellent with a wide range of dishes to suit all tastes. The mill is situated in an ideal place for touring south Cornwall and in particular the Roseland peninsular, do make an effort to visit the church at St Just, said to be the most beautiful church in the country. The mill is little bit of old Cornish hospitality and is highly recommended.

... and we still remember it fondly. We adored the ancient stone building with its unique character, the very spacious rooms, the kindness of the landlady and landlord, the wonderful breakfast. Many years have elapsed since our first visit, but we want to go back there, and we WILL!

We (a party of 5 adults and 1 child) were at Bissick Old Mill for 3 nights from 12 June 2012 and we enjoyed our stay there tremednously. Vivien and Patrick proved to be very capable and wonderful hosts and all our queries before the booking were answered to succinctly and promptly.

We stayed at Room No. 2 (2 adults) and the Mill Suite, the latter of which has 2 rooms, 1 with a super king-size bed (2 adults) and another with a single bed with a truckle bed (1 adult and 1 child). Both rooms have their own ensuites, which made it very convenient for us. All our rooms are located in the main house.

We find the location to be ideal for our exploration around Cornwall. Truro is a mere 7 miles away and has many shops and restaurants. We were out and about on all our days there and it was comforting to know that at the end of our adventurous and tiring day, we will come back to a warm, cosy and comfortable room. Plenty of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits were provided in our rooms, together with fresh milk and bottles of mineral water, which were all thoughtfully replenished each day. Our rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and the beds and sheets were oh-so-comfortable!! Wifi access was fast and free!!

Breakfasts by Patrick and Vivien are another thing to rave about! We made our choices the night before and at the end of our 3-night stay, we have tried and enjoyed most but sadly, not all that were on their very extensive menu. We were truly spoilt by the generous portions of everything that were being served!

We highly recommend this delightful place to other visitors to the area. Their service was simply marvellous and their rooms were more than comfortable!

Really great stay at Bissick Old Mill. Patrick and Vivienne were more than kind to us. I have special needs with my mobility and they really looked after me. Breakfast was huge and all locally sourced....Full Cornish is the way forward! Good pub close by and very well located in this quiet village. We found Ladock a central location to explore all of Cornwall and knowing we were returning after a days exploring to Bissick Old Mill was something we looked forward to. Our Suite was spacious and spotless. Other guests also very pleasant. We will be back.

Room Tip: We looked at the Granary (it was full when we stayed) and that is a great detached hide-away.
