“Really lovely welcoming guest house”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

I stayed for just one night when working in Liskeard. The deal I had for a single person was a little expensive at £60 a night. I have not rated it lower because of that as I knew that when booking.
The breakfast was excellent.
I travelled by train and Pencubbit was just an easy 5 minute walk from the station. It would be perfectly possible to access lots of local places, Bodmin by train and (Lanhydrock- one of my favourite National Trust houses), Looe on the Looe valley train line, Polperro, by bus, and choose Pencubbit for a car free short break.
I had a lovely and very resonably priced evening meal which I pre ordered by email on my first night.

We were visiting family locally. Pencubitt was delightful. V clean and bright, beautifully presented. Excellent breakfast and very helpful obliging owners. We would stay there again without hesitation and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Southside rooms are beautiful with glorious views

Really lovely house and grounds with ample parking. Mine host welcomed us and could not have been more helpful, even helping me to charge my powered wheelchair in thier garage, so that it was undercover. Access was two single steps that were quite shallow to hall. No internal steps. All rooms upstairs. Grand manorial staircase with comfortable and shallow treads and good handrail to right. We had a front room with marvellous views and everything was spotless. Best breakfast I have ever had in a hotel. Delicious fresh fruit platter and yoghurt daily with wide choice of cooked foods.

Beautiful house and gardens in a great location for accessing different parts of cornwall, very friendly and accomodating owners, Julie and Pat who do everything to make your stay perfect.
Very clean and quiet and you wouldn't know you were on the outskirts of Liskeard, with lovely rural views.
Beautifully decorated for christmas and superb breakfasts, will definately return

When my husband showed me the online pictures of this lovely hotel, I thought he was joking that we were staying there, it looked so classy and expensive. The reality lived up to all expectations and my only disappointment is that we were only staying for one night. We were warmly welcomed and shown up to our chosen room which was on the second floor, well worth the climb, the view from the bedroom the following morning was beautiful. The bed was huge and really comfortable, the room was warm and lovely and the bathroom with it's slipper bath in the centre of the room made it feel really special. The choice for breakfast was excellent, a gorgeous assortment of fresh fruit as well as cereals and local jams, followed by a variety of hot items if required. And all for an extremely reasonable price. The current owners have only been in situ for a few months but were fantastic hosts, I can't recommend this guest house highly enough.

Room Tip: I think we were in room 9, the website says it has a minimum 2 night stay requirement, not sure if t...

Hello
Thankyou so much for your kind and generous review. Since taking over at the end of last August we really have met some wonderful guests who we regard as friends. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and that you liked Room 9 as much as us. And thankyou for sharing your experience at Carnglaze Caverns with us...we will be recommending it to future guests and visiting ourselves.
Hopefully we will see you down here in Cornwall in the very near future, perhaps for a longer stay next time.
Kind Regards

Lovely house in a good location for easy access to all parts of Cornwall. The hotel is difficult to fault, very comfortable, clean, quiet, excellent breakfasts with welcoming hosts and staff. We would certainly use it again next time we visit Cornwall.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are larger but don't all have good views.
