Thank you for your review, our building is very old so the rooms are not as large as we would perhaps like. We keep unnecessary 'stuff' in the rooms to a minimum to give the feeling of space, we like to think of our rooms as uncluttered rather than sparse. Our main courses range from £8- £18, expensive?. I'm pleased to hear that you found our b & b clean and our staff friendly and helpful, hopefully, you could visit again for more than just a stop off and enjoy all that Portreath and the surrounding area has to offer. Kind Regards Nicole & Family

What a place! Staff - every single one of the lovely team can’t do enough for you. So accommodating and welcoming. We were arriving late (close to 11pm) and it was a lovely smooth check in and straight up to our room. Throughout our stay everyone was polite and professional.
