Barbara and Paul were the best hosts we ever had. Absolutely nice and quiet place with great breakfast. Fantastic sea views from the room and nice garden to share. This B&B is an ideal place to start for nice places like Kynance Cove, Porth Chapel Beach or visiting towns like Truro

We had a wonderful time staying at this B&B. Barbara gave us such a warm, personal welcome and made us feel like honoured guests during our visit. The rooms are light, clean and airy (with a sea view!), and the beach is a five minute walk away. Breakfast was delicious, and there was plenty of choice for those who didn't... More

Excellent hosts! Very good team work. The hotel is in a fantastic position, you are made very welcome and the room was clean and comfortable whilst the breakfast was individually cooked with care. Would not hesitate to stay there again. Strongly recommend.

Great welcome from Barbara on our arrival, lovely location and sea view from our window with a Juliet balcony. Bed was really comfy I slept like a log. Good size bathroom with a roomy shower and lovely big soft bath sheets. Fridge at the top of the stairs for guests use, great idea. Good breakfast cooked well and not greasy.... More

i would recommend this b&b to anyone. The hosts Barbara and Paul made us feel very welcome and always had time for a chat. The breakfast was always very nice with a choice of fruit and cereals with tea and coffee where you helped yourselves while your cooked breakfast was being prepared.
