We stayed for two nights and nothing was too much of an effort to ensure our stay was comfortable. I had a meeting to attend in the morning so breakfast was ready 20 mins before the usual time to allow me enough time to travel. I was even given a map. Room 8 was lovely with a huge bed that...

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at St Benet's Abbey B & B. The hosts & staff were wonderful. They make an extraordinary Cornish breakfast! I highly recommend a stay here! Rooms are cozy & yet comfortable. Spend some time with JJ learning history of the Abbey!

Beautiful surroundings, but the owners need to learn more about customer service. Your guests should not be made to feel unwelcome the minute they walk in the door. Guest concerns were met with an attitude of "that's not my problem," and we were made to feel as if we were at fault for it. We could have overlooked things like... More

Sitting next to a little steam, St. Benet's Abbey B&B is in a lovely, quiet setting. The owner was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The rooms (2) we had were comfortable and modern even though this B&B is set in a former abbey. The delicious, ample breakfasts were enough to keep us going all day. A ruin was... More

We stayed for two nights and it was a comfortable couple of nights sleep. The breakfast was nice and the hosts were ok. We didn't spend a lot of time in the place so can't comment much more but we would return.

From the moment we walked into the building we felt welcome. Our room was ideal and the hospitality shown by JJ and Lin was first class. The breakfasts were great, and the environment encourages people to talk and compare experiences. The prices charged in the bar are reasonable and JJ books places to eat if requested (necessary at this time... More

I booked an overnight stay because it was close to Bodmin town center where my partner and I had a business meeting booked for the next day. The B & B itself was charming, clean and nicely decorated. Unfortunately because it was a business trip I specifically needed WiFi and it was not available in the bedroom. We had to... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback and we are disappointed it did not fully meet your expectation.

B&B makes you very welcome . In a very interesting building. Bed very comfortable with crispy sheets. Furniture in good order. Bathroom and other decor a bit shabby. Breakfast was enjoyable with fresh fruit. .

JJ immediately made us so welcome (despite our disturbing his meal) and showed us to a most excellent room, apparently the old coach house of this venerable building. Nothing too much trouble. We breakfasted like kings, charmingly served by Tracy Could not have wished for better.,

My girlfriend organised a fantastic trip to Cornwall, and this was our first stop. What a special place this is! We informed the B&B that we would arrive late in the evening, and the owner - J.J. - straight away made us laugh. We experienced a warm welcome by J.J. who made sure we felt at home right from the...
