We stayed here in August 2012. Excellent hospitality, nothing too much trouble for the people who run the b&b, who seem to work very hard without any other staff. We ate take away pizza one night and they brought us plates, cutlery etc, and wine glasses to go with it and even cleaned up after us too. I even saw them providing room service, which is not normal for a bed and breakfast.
Breakfast - fine, standard English with cereal options too, nice partial sea views from the breakfast room, tables nicely spaced so not cramped.
We took the family room which is ideal - a bit on the small side but very clean and well equipped with tea, coffee etc, hairdrier, towels and toiletries, which is much appreciated in a b&b. There was a huge double with a nice ensuite and then a separate kids bedroom with three beds, which can be closed off to give everyone privacy.
Location is great, a couple of streets above the high street, there is a little short cut down hill almost right opposite the b&b, so it only takes about 2-3 minutes to get to the high street. Beach is another five minutes or so from there.
Limited parking but they did their best to help us when their own parking was full. Overall, this was a great stay and we would definitely try and go back there on the next trip to Newquay.
