5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2010

This must be the best B+B I have ever stayed in. Large rooms, Great decor and ambience. Owners are extremely friendly and happy to socialise. I will use this place again. The only problem is it will spoil you and the average B+B just will not cut it after "Topos"

Excellent B&B Greg and Lynda made us very welcome and there are a few nice little touches that make it that little bit different. I would definately recommend it. It is also very close to the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan,so a really good place to stay for visiting these places.On the down side it is at the bottom of a very steep hill so for anyone who has difficulty walking,they would have to use a car all the time.

We chose to stay at Topos for two weeks on the strength of previous excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and found them to be fully justified. We could not have asked for friendlier hosts than Greg and Lynda. They could not do enough for us and gave good advice on places to visit and to eat.

Extremely cosy and comfortable bed. Room was spacious with good facilities including armchairs and flat screen TV/DVD player. Handy decking outside the room for sitting in the sun. Quiet location ensuring undisturbed nights.

Location in St. Austell is very central for reaching all parts of Cornwall. Highly recommended for any length of stay.

The purpose of our short stay in Cornwall was to visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project so planned to stay in St Austell. We were looking for a B&B within walking distance from the town centre. We couldn't have chosen a better B&B. Greg and Lynda were excellent hosts and very helpful and welcoming. Topos is very clean, comfortable, and ideally situated.

We read some of the reviews before we booked at Topo's, and to be fair the reviews are all wrong.....it's far far better than the review suggests!!!.....this is the best B&B I have ever stayed at......! We're going back one day for sure! Lovely place, lovely people and local to plenty of great places to visit!!

After trying to book in St Austell for ages it was a welcoming phonecall from Linda to say they had had a cancellation and a room available!
We stayed at Topos guest house on a saturday night and to be honest it wasnt a planned B&B but I am so glad we did get to stay there - and we will use again when in the area.
We had such a friendly welcome, Greg and linda are fab hosts and although we werent there long enough, the house was lovely and spacious with lovely patio's and a nice outside fire for the chilly evenings.
Great location for Eden project and cheap taxi recommended!
Breakfast was lovely and the rooms are lovely, clean and very comfy!
Thank you for letting us stay!

We came down for a week's holiday and to attend a wedding. Topos is a convenient place to stay, close to most things. The accom is very good with lovely breakfasts. The governor is very helpful and increased our enjoyment of Cornwall with his local knowledge of restaurents, beaches, ferries etc and we will go back when we can.
