My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Sea Breeze for two nights in October; we were both extremely impressed as soon as we entered the property.
The welcome was very friendly and the accomodation spotlessly clean; Jill and Julian take great pride in what they do. This was a surprise trip for my wife's 40th birthday and it was a nice touch that there was a birthday card and bag of chocolates on the bed, waiting for her!
We stayed in the Atlantic room which has a double jacuzzi bath and a balcony. One word: FANTASTIC! The view is spectacular from the elevated position of Sea Breeze though it is interupted by the roof of the property next door, but this is no big deal; you can see for miles either side and it's a nice place to sit and relax.
The walk into town takes about 10 minutes from the accomodation and is far more enjoyable going than returning; unless you have the energy levels of a mountain goat, that is! Lots of steps and steep roads but don't be put off by this; I'm a big chap and I enjoyed the small sense of achievement in reaching the accomodation and felt that I'd earned a seat on the balcony!
There is, however, a sports complex not too far away and a bus service to and from the town stops here. In walking, though, you are treated to some great views so make sure you have your camera with you!
My wife and I DEFINITELY intend to return to Sea Breeze at some point in the hopefully not-too-distant future; this was our first trip to Cornwall and we certainly don't feel the need to look at any other accomodation, Sea Breeze has everything we need. Oh yes, the breakfast is great, too!
Thank you very much Jill and Julian, we WILL see you again!
