“Comfortable, friendly and amazing breakfasts!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I stayed at The Old Post Office for 5 nights form the 20th June 2013, and was very comfortable. The house is very clean, quiet ( a big bonus for me - and thank you to all the family for their consideratness). The bed was very comfy, a nice shower and the breakfast needs a review all of its own!!
Sue gave me wondeful fresh fruit, nice coffee and lots of great granary toast - perfect, as I don't like fried breakfasts.
When I left, she even made me up a 'goody' bag for my journey - how nice is that!
i wish Sue & Kev all the success in the world, moving forward withthe B+B.

Room Tip: I had the double room with the small single room attached - it is at the back of the house so is nic...

The Old Post Office is a great place to base yourself when exploring Cornwall. Sue and Kevin are very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. The full English breakfast was perfect and set us up for the day. The room was very comfortable and the en-suite bathroom/shower was perfect.
Sue and Kevin were very helpful in advising on restaurants in the area and places to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to going back next time we are in Cornwall. Sue had made up a lunch pack for us both as we were leaving, which was a very nice touch.

Just spent a great weekend at The Old Post Office with Sue and Kevin - so friendly and lovely breakfast. We were there for a wedding and really felt like we could treat the place as home. Couldn't fault any aspect of our stay and would love to go back. The travel lunch packs to take with us were a really kind thought.

Room Tip: We had the blue room on the front, very comfortable and lovely view.

We had a most enjoyable three night stay. The new owners Sue and Kevin are extremely friendly and generous hosts. Sue provides an excellent breakfast with plenty of choice, the rooms are very clean, comfortable and nicely equipped. We would wholeheartedly recommend "The Old Post Office" to anybody looking for a B and B in this lovely corner of Cornwall.

Chris and Penny.

Room Tip: Good family room - pretty double at the front.

The Post Office is run by Kevin and Sue, a delightful couple, originally from London. The Post Office is set in a beautiful part of Cornwall, and the area offers a wonderful sandy beach, and rural, woodland walks, therefore you never really have to use your car, unless you want to go sightseeing. The Old Post Office is well run, the rooms are clean, comfortable, bright and spacious. The guests have their own dining and sitting room area, which is ideal if you have children or simply want somewhere to relax and read the papers. Each room is equipped with a television and tea and coffee making facilities, although Sue often made us a fresh coffee, when we returned from our day out. Sue and Kevin make you feel really welcome, and are very approachable. We also took our dog, who was made most welcome and well looked after. Fab breakfast every morning, to help kick start the day. There's also free car parking directly opposite the B&B.

I brought my Mum to Cornwall for the Easter weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Post Office. Our room was super comfy and huge (family room= double room with a single room attached). Breakfast was one of the best I've tasted: all really fresh with lots of ingredients from the nearly farm shop - delicious! Most of all we appreciated the warm welcome from Sue and the relaxed, homely atmosphere - all in a beautiful setting. Thank you and we wish you every success for the coming season!
