5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2010

Unfortunately it was only short break but it was fantastic! Perfect location overlooking the Bude canal with views of the sea from the of the Balcony of the Red Room. The accommodation is stylish and comfortable with everything you could possible need. Paul and Mary are fantastics hosts nothing is too much trouble and the food is excellent! Can't wait for our next visit!

This house has to have the perfect situation in Bude: along side and overlooking the canal with views of either a wonderful back garden of out over the sea. Paul and Mary are the perfect hosts and offer a quiet but superb facility which is their home - and you feel at home too! Three fantastic rooms all colour co-ordinated, to a high standard and very comfortable with all the facilities you would expect from a 4* hotel. The breakfasts are brilliant, always a choice and the cooked breakfast is the best. It is a base for a great holiday in Bude!

We stayed at Breakwater House B&B recently for two nights while attending a friends wedding. Paul and Mary are excellent hosts and make you feel immediately at ease and comfortable in their wonderful B&B.

We stayed in the Red Suite which is very comfortable and roomy - the pictures on the web site really can't convey how wonderful this room is - to the rear you have gorgeous gardens to the front you have beautiful balcony views and excellent quality throughout. We both felt wowed when we walked in.

Every detail is taken care of and nothing is too much trouble, the quality of service that Paul and Mary provide is simply the best I've experienced in a B&B and puts many hotels to shame. The breakfast choice was fantastic too!

Absolutely wonderful - easily deserves every one of its 5 stars - would happily recommend and will stay there again.

Brilliant location, really clean and beautifully decorated, high quality fixture and fittings. The service was first class and the breakfasts were excellent. Paul even washed my wet suit! Nothing was too much trouble.

Just arrived back from a 2 night stay at Breakwater House. We stayed with our young daughter and 7 month old son which can be problematic but our hosts Paul & Mary were so thoughtful that it couldn't have been better. Our room (green) was fantastic, large with wonderful views over the canal and towards the beach. It was spotless and the small single bed for our daughter was lovely. The en-suite was a good size, immaculate with a wonderful shower.
Breakfast was delicious with a huge choice. We were invited to use the well appointed lounge and the private garden which is beautifully kept.
The biggest headache when away from home with a baby can be preparing food but as soon as we arrived we were told that we were welcome to use the kitchen if we needed it and we gave baby his evening meals in the dining room.
Everything about the B&B is truly 5 star: the welcome, the coffee,breakfast, rooms, views, location, even the hairdryer was great! Well worth a trip and we look forward to returning.

It was our first weeks holiday in the UK for many years and our stay at Breakwater House was everything we could wish for. We stayed in the Blue Room a luxury bedroom and bathroom with a balcony overlooking the rear garden, perfect for those gin and tonics. Paul and Mary's hosting skills where first class giving us excellent advise on where to eat out, coastal walks and places to visit within the surrounding area.
Breakfast was substantial with plenty of choice. A definite 5 star experience.

What a stunning B&B - like no other that I have ever been to. I think you would be hard pushed to find fault. Brilliant service all round - the rooms are fabulous and individual. We stayed for 2 nights while attending a wedding and hope to make a return trip very soon. I would recommend to anyone visiting Bude. Better value for money and a warmer welcome you don't find every day. Well done to Paul and Mary.
