“Good place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I went to Cornwall to visit Eden Project. I went via Exeter so was late to go to them
I booked a room at Innis Inn. Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and cosy pub with fantastic food. There are few things which need update, and via a friendly chat the new owners they mentioned that they are kin to improve the facilities. For example the rooms are not en suite; the bathrooms are common but not inconveniently. They have great plans and I believe we can help them to achieve their target by booking in with them. You will be not disappointed.

We have just spent a few days travelling around Cornwall and were hoping for really nice weather but like so many this year we were disapointed. Most of the camping and caravan sites were OK but on a rainy evening it get's a bit boring just playing cards or dominos and after many nights of the same it really does get depressing. By pure chance we found the Innis Inn.
The new owners were fantastic, helpfull and nothing was too much. Although they have only just taken over this marvelous setting just about 5 minutes from the Eden Project they made us feel at home. Renovations are currently taking place and the family have major plans to turn the Innis Inn into a well run and looked after place to stay. After a few days couped up in our camper, it was a breath of fresh air to park up and have a few beers without the hassle of driving down small lanes or paying excessive taxi fares back to a pitch black campsite located miles from the nearest village. Although we did not order any food we were told first hand that the food was brilliant and i must admit the menu did look good. This pace is well worth a visit.

I stayed here recently with my girlfriend, and we had the most lovely time. The inn is under new ownership and is now run by a family. The inn was so welcoming, the owners extremely friendly, and we were made to feel like privileged guests.

We like the place so much, that whilst we were only planning on staying for one night, we ended up staying for four. Couldn't recommend it more.

The only thing i would say is that whilst some of the facilities are slightly dated, the shower block for example, we were chatting to the new owners and renovations have been scheduled, (they'd only been there for a month when we had stayed)

Also on a final note, we only found this out when we stayed here, but if you stay there and walk to The Eden project your eligible for a concession, to the tune of something like £5 a person, which is a nice bonus.

A two night stay as my partner wanted to fish at the adjoining lakes there.No information about the cost,what fish were caught etc?.Just told not to fish in the lake that was being cleaned.A water bailiff found us the following day at the lake and,he was very helpful.

We were also keen to camp next to the pub so that we could have our evening meal there.The food was reasonably priced and,ok pub food.No locals using the pub?.No music,no atmosphere and,the guy there had no conversation at all,almost as if we were an inconvenience?.

We parked our campervan on the road track as the grass was boggy.Showers/toilets were ok but,not clearly marked.Disabled shower seat was covered with mould on the underside.The shower seat was also very rusty at each corner even though it had been painted white.

We read that the campsite was ideal for getting to the Eden Project but,we would have preferred to camp elsewhere and,made the drive to Eden.
