“Peaceful stay in Mevagissey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

This was our first time in Cornwall and it couldn't have been better. The B&B was exactly what we were looking for - quiet, great location and close enough for us to explore the beautiful coastal path. Jill and Joe are very welcoming and full of local information. Our only downside was not getting to stay long enough!!

We've already booked again for next year so we can explore more!!

This was our 3rd stay at the Mandalay (Early August 2013). Once again we were not disappointed and were very happy with all aspects of our stay. Staying at the Mandalay is like a home from home experience. Jill & Joe welcomed us back, served us with a pot of tea and an ice cream for our toddler after a long 5.5hr journey. We stayed in the family room which was ample in size and allowed plenty of space for us to assemble our travel cot with ease. The breakfasts in the morning cooked up by Joe.... well... you'll be happily stuffed and won't need lunch!!! And Jill is always happy to top up your tea, coffee and toast until you can't take anymore! All done and combined with their banter but not encroaching on your breakfast time.

The Mandalay, Jill, Joe and their son are just like "Ron Seal" - Does what it says on the tin! However Jill and Joe do go the extra mile to ensure that your stay is as nice as possible. Alas they are human and not mind readers so if you have an issue let then know and they WILL fix it! (Not that we've had to complain ;-) )

Anyway with all that, we'll be back next year with no hesitation. Many thanks to all
@ the Mandalay.

Room Tip: The house is in a very quiet area of the village so every room is nice.

When we came to Mandalay, Joe was sitting outside and gave us the feeling your home, I could walk in to the garden up the hill . Then Jill came. She is ever such a nice lady,
Immediatly telling if something isn`t right, just tell her.
Its like a warm bath, You feel at ease an at home, If you come there for many years.
The vieuw from there house over de village is superb.
Going to Mevagissey was the best holiday we had in The whole of England. And we`ve been there for many years.
Friendly people and the i wished i could life there, .
Thanks to Joe and Jill, There is no better place to stay there,The food is fantastic. Every day is a treat.. The rooms are spotless. And Joe will give information of possibilties where you can go to. We certainly book again when we are going. . It was heaven on Earth. You can walk to the harbour, The townvillage is ever so nice. beautifull shops . Thank you ever so much. No we are back in the Netherlands, but if someone would, say, You can go back. I would say WHEN.

All I can say is don't believe everything you read!!! If you want to experience Fawlty Towers then this is the place for you!!. Don't expect quality food - Mandaly motto is quantity over quality!! Asked for grapefruit juice but never got! The only good thing about this B&B is the fact that the sheets were clean and the bed was reasonably comfortable. I do wonder who writes these reviews. Did we stay at the same place?? Two ighuanas sharing the breakfast lounge - albeit in a tank - and ferrets outside! You get the picture???

We spent the week here and had a fabulous time. The food was excellent the place was spotless and the location amazing and the owners... what can I say? Well to be honest they are the very best hosts anyone going to Mevagissey would wish to have, they made our stay really brilliant (entertainment 5 star!) All in all the whole week was the best stay we ever had anywhere in England! If any of you reading this want a truly fabulous time then book now its the best and you would be daft to miss out. Dave and Jean Perkins, Alton Hants

Room Tip: The front bedroom with the bay window excellent!

Recently managed to get a late booking at the Mandalay in August, chosen as it allows well behaved dogs to stay - and for free !!! My partner and I found the greeting from Jill so very welcoming and full of humour, meeting Joe and the ferrets later sealed the deal ! This place is a few minutes walk in to Mevagissey so is perfectly located for all sorts of activities and interests. The breakfast was first class, cooked by Joe and served by Jill with her very own brand of humour, she even provided a plastic bag for left overs for the dog. We can certainly recommend this place and would return there in the future. Best wishes to Jill and Joe who make a great team.

Room Tip: The front room has cracking views
