Same as before, very lovely place to stay. So friendly and helpful and no doubt will stay there again. The new conservatory on the front gives more space for the breakfast dining. Maybe next time the new car park will be completed

This little family home guest house is an ideal stop for a few days in Saint Austell and roundabout. Eden Project and the Lost Garden of Heligan are very near. The breakfasts are superb and it is clean and tidy. Would go back whenever in Cornwall.

Spent 4 nights and was made to feel really welcome by Barbera and Michael. They were really helpful with their local knowledge. Room was spotless and the breakfast was good. As a guest house you would be hard pushed to find anywhere better. Would certainly return!

As others have written, we did enjoy our brief stay at the Gables on our last night in Cornwall. Mike & Barbara were wonderful hosts. Our room was surprisingly small, but very clean and comfortable. We hadn't fully understood the private bath vs ensuite; but since there was only one other couple staying that night it certainly wasn't an issue.... More

Welcomed on arrival of our 4 night stay. Had to order breakfast each evening for the following morning which we are use to. Breakfast was large and of good quality. Only disappointment was the room was not en-suite and car park was not sufficient for all guests to park in. Would recommend but ensure you book a room en- suite.

Stayed here from 31/5/16-3/6/16 on my own for business. The couple who own are very friendly. Upon arrival I was shown to my room which was a comfortable size. The whole house smells of fresh linen! It was exceptionally clean. It is beautifully decorated an I was in the Poldark room. My private shower room was across the hall (... More

Mike and Barbara were very friendly and as helpful as other reviewers have found, making sure we had dairy free products and helping us to find places to eat. Breakfasts in the conservatory overlooking the lovely garden were ample and delicious. Our room was very clean and well stocked with coffee, tea, cakes etc but rather small. We had our... More

We were warmly greeted by Mike immediately when the taxi dropped us off. Barbara was just as friendly and filled us in on all the little amenities they provided for the room. They obviously pay attention to details and the room was very clean with a good bed and a small shower. The room and bath were smaller than we... More
