On getting to the B&B the welcome was friendly and we were shown straight to our room. The first thing I noticed was that you were given a key directly for your room and to the front door for the annex. There were no times that doors were locked either which is a first for me. Cindy is a lovely and friendly lady who takes her time to make sure that you are ok. It is close to Newquay and to the aquarium and zoo. There is a tesco close by and so the location is brilliant,
There were a few disappointments to the stay though - the first being that on picking up the remote controls 1. your hand was covered in grease and 2. they didn't actually work! The bedding was clean but there was a half rolled tobacco cigarette on the floor, a button from previous occupants and part of the fridge! These were all seen by myself and my friend as soon as we walked in so how someone cleaning the room did not notice I do not know! Was lovely to put our belongings onto a side that still had wet tea on! On our 3rd night we returned from our relaxing meal and quiet drinks at a pub that overlooks the sea to find that Cindy and her partner had friends over in the room that was not occupied behind ours. We were told that they would not be late and to begin with the noise level was low. By midnight and on myself and my friend settling down for the night all we heard was the continuous swearing about making people pay more for the stay, making people pay for clean towels or just not washing them and charging for other extras. As you can imagine hearing that you should be paying more when you can't get to sleep in the first place was not the highlight of my night. It was gone 2am before people decided to leave and around 3am before the last of the noise was heard. On mentioning this I was given a story of 'I went to bed, that's the trouble when that room is not occupied'. Although we were apologised to it didn't really settle that it also ruined the next day because we were so tired we were back by late afternoon instead of doing what we wanted to that day. £70 not well spent for the experience that night.
However the breakfast is lovely and well presented with your requirements met. The dog is so quiet and friendly and sat for ages for fuss! Cindy even placed a cool bag and cool packs into her fridge in order for myself and my friend to bring home some clotted cream.
Overall I would place that my visit for good however the end was slightly ruined and the apology didn't really resolve the issue and was therefore not very good value for money. I would return again but ensuring I did not stay in the same room and was in the main house where it appears to be quieter.
