“" Return Visit"”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

Lovely view of Padstow and Rock from the Bedroom window. Really clean and comfortable, made very welcome by the owners Christine and Ken. The food was really tasty, local produce and home made marmalade. Padstow, Port Issac, Rock and Polzeath beach 15 minutes away. Lost gardens of Heligan only 35 minutes away. Great location.
Would highly recommend staying at this B & B. This is a return visit for us, really impressed when we came for a short break and was really pleased to be able to stay again.

Room Tip: We have stayed in Estuary and Garden rooms, both equally immaculate.

Thank you for making a return visit to us at Elba. We are pleased you found our location ideal for visiting gardens, the beaches and the local harbours. We felt you made the most of your stay here and of course were fortunate with the good weather. So glad you enjoyed your breakfasts - in particular the toast from home made bread and of course our home made marmalade :-)

Thank you for your review, we look forward to welcoming you again at some point in the future.

Kind regards, Chris and Ken

We enjoyed a fabulous two days in this lovely little B&B in July 2014. With easy access to Polzeath, Rock and Padstow its ideally located as well. Chris and her husband Ken have turned their family home into a cosy, immaculate and very comfortable B&B which will suit even the most discerning customer! The rooms are spacious, immaculately clean and no detail has been left out. The bathrooms are equally spotless and kitted out with luxurious soaps, bath and shower gels. The rooms are tastefully decorated and on arrival you are greeted with a homely welcome and plenty of information about the house and surrounding area. The breakfasts are fantastic and cooked fresh and be sure to try the home made bread. we would recommend this place to anyone and hope to be back sometime soon.

Wow! What a fabulous review Tim, thank you! I enjoyed reading your comprehensive comments, we couldn't have asked for a better description of what we are offering. Hope you and Camilla enjoyed the wedding and Camilla survived on 'those' shoes!

It would be lovely to see you here again, you never know you may need that mini break you spoke about before too long! You know you can find peace and quiet here; you may like to try one of our other cosy rooms for a change!

Hope all goes well for you both in 3 months time.

Kind regards
Chris and Ken

Loved the Garden room with view of the back yard garden. House is nicely refitted with upscale fittings. Wide breakfast choices including salmon! A bit off the path, but close enough to town (Wadebridge).Good base for visiting Port Isaac.

Room Tip: Ask for the Garden room

Dear Grace - thank you for your review of Elba. We're pleased to hear you 'loved' the Garden room the most recent of our rooms to be refurbished (earlier this year). We are also glad you enjoyed breakfast.
We consider we are in a good position for visiting the popular places you went to such as Port Isaac, slightly north of us and Padstow, just to the south. Being outside the town centre, just off the A39 means most parts of Cornwall are within easy reach. Another advantage of our quiet location is it is far enough away from the hustle and bustle to be peaceful and yet near enough to access the great variety of restaurants and shops in the town.
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your break away taking advantage of the excellent weather we are having this year.
Kind regards, Chris and Ken

Lovely place to stay. Great location. Chris & Ken are great hosts; room has everything you could want. Luxury Hotel accommodation in a B&B. exceptional value for money.
Would highly recommend and would local to return one day. A shame that we stayed at the end if our holiday, not the beginning.

Couldn't have hoped for a better place! I needed a place for my family to stay before and after our May wedding that was close to us in Wadebridge, and after much searching for a place that would accommodate 6 adults and a child, I ran across Elba's website. Chris replied almost right away and was so flexible and accommodating! My family, most of whom had never been to England, instantly loved their rooms and hosts, and as soon as we picked them up each morning we heard how delicious each person's breakfast was, how they were trying new foods and loving them, and how wonderfully welcome they felt. In the midst of organizing the final details and holding the wedding, it was absolutely wonderful to know that my family were in good hands and were so well looked after. Huge thanks to Chris and Ken for everything; the Elba is our go-to accommodations in Wadebridge from now on, and we're happy to call them new friends!

Hello Heather - it was a joy to have your family to stay at what was a very important time of your life. It worked out so well that they could take all the rooms and be free to move through our house as if they were in their own home. Your family were a joy to host, they were so excited telling Ken and me where they had been and sharing with us their numerous :-) pictures including the fun ones!

At breakfast there was a real family atmosphere with everyone so relaxed always looking at someone else's plate to see what they had. I'm really pleased they were willing to try the new foods that I brought in each morning (including your brother who admitted to being reluctant to eat certain foods) - they were all very appreciative.

You made the delightful gesture of bringing us some of the wedding flowers, thank you. I was very proud to display them in the hall for others to enjoy too. A lovely reminder of having you all in our home.

We look forward to welcoming our new friends to our home again and we are keeping in touch already through Facebook and emails.

Thank you for your review of Elba.
With our very best wishes to you all
Chris and Ken

The 4 of us have just spent 2 nights staying with Chris and Ken at their "Elba" Bed and Breakfast. We went down to experience the Royal Cornwall Show (without the traffic jams!!) and had a most fantastic weekend. From the very start both Chris and Ken were the most perfect hosts, both rooms were fantastic, spotlessly clean and all the "little" extras had been catered for, even down to the wine stopper in the room!! The location of Elba is fantastic for the RCS - we literally crossed the road straight into the show ground and the "local" pub was just a 5 min walk down a very straight country road and the evening meals served their were delicious.

Chris and Ken couldn't have been any more helpful and the breakfast was fantastic - all freshly cooked to order and beautifully presented with local produce.

If you are looking for a warm, friendly, spotlessly clean, relaxed place to stay then you certainly don't have to look any further than staying with Chris and Ken at "Elba". We had a fantastic weekend from start to finish - the RCS was amazing and the ease and convenience of staying at Elba just added to our enjoyment.

Thank you Chris and Ken for helping to make it all so memorable.

Hi Theresa and gang! You are certainly a lively group of people and we loved having you to stay. We are so pleased we were able to accommodate you at the last minute due to an unforeseen cancellation at such a prime time. Luck was certainly with the 4 of you as accommodation so close to the Showground is much sought after.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on Trip Advisor and in our Visitors' Book. We were certainly glowing after reading that!
We look forward to welcoming you to Elba on another of your adventures!
Very best wishes
Chris and Ken

We loved our stay at Elba bnb. Friendly and warm welcome from Chris, who makes the best Cornish breakfast (all local prouduce or made herself!). The Estuary Room was perfect, so comfortable and clean, and everything you need to make it as relaxing as possible. Not to mention the stunning views. Great location to get to anywhere in Cornwall.

Couldn't recommend this place enough! Hopefully we'll be back soon ourselves!
