Upon arrival at the B&B late in the afternoon the front of the property was locked up and I spent several minutes ringing/knocking to no avail. I then took the advice "we may be in the garden" and walked down the path to the rear of the house. The rooms at the rear were vacant with not a soul to... More

A really comfortable guest house, fabulous views, varied breakfast menu, spacious and clean. Huge glass patio doors looked out over the cove, very exciting watching the waves break over the sea wall at high tide. We're not serious walkers but managed the walk into mevagissey without any trouble and found it a perfect spot from which to visit Heligan, Fowey,... More

This is a great base for touring out around Cornwall and the fishing village of Mevagissey and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a few of minutes away. Lovely couple, lovely house, great location, fantastic views & excellent breakfast. Faultless!

This is our second visit to the delightful Portmellon Cove Guest house and this time we brought friends with us. Once again the visit was fantastic and nothing to much trouble for hosts Sarah and Roy. The rooms are large, extremely well equiped, very comfy and even have their own garden with ample seating plus a first class breakfast. As... More

Portmellon is a lovely little cove on Cornwall’s south coast 15 minutes south of St. Austell. It is a residential area with few bed and breakfast establishments one pub/restaurant by the bay five minutes walking distance from our guesthouse. Portmellon Guest House. This is total “Chill Out”.

Most of the previous reviews have said it all about this guest house. We stayed for 4 nights in the Eden room. It was fantastic, and Sarah's attention to detail was impressive. The bed, a 4 poster was a 5 foot wide one and I slept very well as it was so quiet. There is no traffic noise or people... More

Mevagissey and portmellon in my humble opinion are hidden jems in the Cornish south coast so finding somewhere to stay right in the middle of these two was paramount. From the minute we arrived to the time we left we could not have wished for more attentive yet unobtrusive hosts. The guest house itself is split level with spacious and... More

We can honestly say that the Portmellon Cove Guesthouse has been one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in. We stayed for 5 nights in the Heligan room which had fantastic views to the cove across the lovely garden (as do the other rooms which all face the same way). The room was nicely decorated with plenty of... More

As all other reviews cannot fault, A nice luxury little hideaway, quiet and peaceful with lovely gardens. Yes Mevagissey is a little stroll away but it's downhill on the way back ! Great breakfasts . We had ordered high tea and no disappointment , absolutely lovely.

Set overlooking the harbour the Porthmellon Cove Guest House boasts fantastic views and it delivers. Sarah is a fantastic hostess with excellent breakfasts from a full Cornish to smoked haddock or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. We were in the Lanhydroc room with a king size bed which was far too comfortable, fresh milk everyday for your coffee in your... More
