I stayed here for one night ahead of a visit to the Eden Project. Location is very convenient for Eden, just 12 minutes drive. I stayed in the single room, which is a converted garage. I made the booking on booking.com, which made this point very clear, so I knew to expect this. Apart from the fairly low ceiling (I... More

Our host Peter was polite, pleasant and cheerful. His knowledge of the surrounding area was brilliant, from places to eat to places to visit. He runs the guest house on his own and nothing is to much trouble for him. Our room and the guest house was clean and tidy, and the food was excellent. A five minute walk into... More

This hotel is in a good location as a base for touring around Cornwall. St Austell itself we thought was a dump where everything shuts down at 5 pm and the town centre becomes completely dead. Peter is an excellent host. We had a lovely room with a very comfortable 4 poster bed and an excellent en-suite shower room. Breakfast,... More

Although on a busy road, the room was quiet. Good location , easy to get to Heligan , Eden etc but within walking distance to town centre. Room and facilities spotlessly clean. Peter very friendly host and helpful with local knowledge.

The room was wonderfully quiet, very clean with a well built efficient shower. Peter was very welcoming and went out of his way be helpful, informative and friendly. He provided useful information regarding transport and local amenities. We can thoroughly recommend this B&B and we will be returning in the near future.

As a solo traveller I stayed in the annex at The Elms which was a cosy room and ideal for my needs. The hospitality tray was well stocked and there was also a fridge which was a useful addition. Peter is a friendly host and cooks delicious breakfasts which are served in a very pleasant conservatory. St Austell is a... More

Peter is a great host, friendly and most of all helpful I was ill during my stay and he could not do enough to assist me. I was located in the single annexe at the side of house which was private and quiet.
