“Fabulous & Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

We had a great time, so near the beach and town. A lovely cooked breakfast each morning with plenty of choice. We were very grateful to receive a free upgrade to a sea-view room. Emma and the family were very friendly. Great place for walking and relaxing. You will see us again.
Thanks Emma :)

Room Tip: Sea view was brilliant from room 6

My first visit to The Edgcumbe has been excellent and I can't wait to go back! A genuine family run business, who make you feel so welcome, it was great. On a short break it was truly home from home. I slept very well, the rooms are fresh, clean and the bed was really comfortable.

The views were stunning from room 6, triple aspect straight out to sea and I could hear the roar of the ocean, simply brilliant.

The bathroom was small but functional with great natural products. Water, tea, coffee and Cornish biscuits supplied in the room. The tv worked with no fuss, and there's even cute Hector to take for a walk along the beach! Wi-fi in the snug worked well.

Breakfast was very good, lots of choice, well cooked and the ambiance of the dining area really warm. I ate in one evening in the comfortable homely snug. The food was good, tasty, nicely presented and their wine list is excellent. I have to say I would have stayed another couple of nights if I could have, it was so relaxing. All local amenities are within a short walking distance.

This hotel offers a unique quality service in a caring, warm environment. I loved it, I'm going back with friends and family and I highly recommend a visit!

Room Tip: Room 6 - first floor, at the front of the hotel, great triple aspect to countryside and the ocean.

We stayed here for two nights and honestly could not fault it. We received the warmest of welcomes on arrival from the friendly owners. Our sea-view room was just lovely, spotlessly clean,super comfortable bed, great bath/body products sourced locally and good quality tea, coffee and biscuits too. The breakfasts, too, were superb. Freshly cooked to order and a really good choice. The weather was pretty awful during our stay but the owners dried our walking coats and boots for us and laid up a table for us to enjoy a take-away delivered by the local Indian restaurant, when we didn't want to face the weather again that evening! Would recommend!

My husband, son and I spent a weekend at The Edgcumbe in September 2013. Our bedroom was beautifully clean, very comfortable and ideal for us as it had a separate bedroom for our son. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, the breakfast absolutely delicious with a huge choice. Would we stay here again? Most definitely, yes!

First time at the Edgcumbe and simply couldn't fault it. The service is friendly, the breakfasts stunning and the views of the beach and canal from my room were lovely. In a great position close to the town and the beach. Will definitely stay again next time I am in the area.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front front have the best outlook.

Second visit and equally as homely as the first visit even at the end of the season with the b&b about to close for the season. Lovely rooms, excellent location, yummy breakfasts and the friendliest owners. I'm sure we will be back again soon. Just wish we could take the dog but understandable when there's already a master of the house.

Room Tip: If you want a view thats not of the back of Sainsbury's you will need to upgrade, however we wer...

My room was very clean and the location was very useful for shops and restaurants. I was upgraded to a seaview room - it was amazing to wake up to such fabulous views and the sound of waves lapping the beach below. Value for money was outstanding, the welcome was very warm and they cook fantastic scrambled eggs. The shower was ok - not that powerful but good enough and powerful showers waste water. Would definitely stay again. A really nice place with great people running it.
