We spent two nights in Gemstones on a recent visit to Cornwall. Simon was welcoming and friendly and Gemstones itself very pretty and well looked after. The garden is delightful and our room and en suite bathroom was very clean and in excellent decorative order. The bed was especially comfortable, a little on the firm side which is exactly how I like it. It's in a perfect location for the Eden Project which was the main reason for choosing it.
The only minor downside for us was that the room was rather on the small side and my husband and I aren't! It did feel a little cramped at times. For less chunky individuals it would probably be fine.
I would reccommend it to other people
