Nice old decoration in the public area, but room just like other B&B.

“Great place to spend an afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

I went last October when my friend came over from America. Normally I am too tight to pay for a local attraction, but wanting him to see some real history, we came to Tintagel. The walk around and up through the remains of the castle are fantastic as are the views. Lots of steep steps and rough tracks though, so able bodied people only. Not sure how authentic is the King Arthur legend or the plastic swords in the gift shop, but worth a visit.

“Just wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

Be prepared for lot of scampering up and down steep steps - but if you are up for that - you will love it! Lots of families had brought picnics and there were lots of places to sit to enjoy it. Merlin's cave was breathtaking - make sure you find out when the tide is coming in so you can time your visit to the cave without getting your feet wet.
