“Highly recommended.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

I reiterate what other guests have to say, just an excellent place to stay, a beautiful old home. The owners are helpful but unobtrusive. The place is well equipped with everything you could need and more. Excellent food. A place you can relax in.

Room Tip: Think they are all good, choose by how much you wish to pay.

We had a couple extraordinary Basil Fawlty moments at Molesworth Manor which if they weren't so thoughtless and rude, would have been quite funny. The final insult was when I was having trouble picking up the weak wi-fi. The proprietor told me no-one else had had that problem, with the clear implication that this was my problem not his. Undeterred, I asked if I should stand near the router. With a exasperated gesture he said I could use his laptop on the adjacent desk. It wasn't on. I asked him how to turn it on. He said to another couple standing nearby: 'that's the trouble with people who get a computer for Christmas and don't know how to use it'. He told me he'd come down to Cornwall to 'run a b&b not do IT' and something else about having been in the IT business for 30 years. Perhaps, as a previous reviewer has mentioned, he should brush up on his people skills. That said, Molesworth Manor is pleasant enough but on the main road through village so there was traffic noise with the windows open. Nothing makes up for owner's chippy attitude.

I am sorry that your reviewer took my musings on the internet and wifi personally.I was in the middle of serving breakfast for 20 people and trying to check out guests at the same time so while willing to help, the internet connection was not the main priority.We provide a computer for guest use and I directed her to that in case there was a problem with her computer.No offence was intended and I am sorry that it was taken that way.

Just come back from a 3 night stay at Molesworth Manor. The old manor house is a lovely old home that is very well kept inside and out with a lot of attention to detail, a credit to the owners & staff.
All the staff make you welcome and they can not do enough to make your stay with them a good one. The breakfasts and very good and tasty with good options for everybody. The bedrooms are very clean and comfortable, bed is comfy for a good nights sleep, bathroom spacious with fluffy towels.
Location is quiet and just a short taxi ride away from the harbour in Padstow with all its bars and restaurants if you did not want to do the lovely walks into Padstow.
The owners are very welcoming and Jessica is lovely & hard working and Geoff is just a lovely humorous special kind of character, they broke the mould when they made him.
Their are so many nice things to say about this place and the staff who work hard making this a special place to stay, but you should really go and experience it for yourself.
We would highly recommend Molesworth Manor as a place to stay for a quiet break. We did the wonderful walk through the countryside to Padstow and back again everyday and the views were wonderful, this took about an hour each way.
We look forward to returning for another wonderful stay in the near future.
Rob & Jackie Northern Ireland

Room Tip: Enjoy the tranquility of Molesworth Manor and the wonderful walks walks into Padstow.

Stayed here for a night in July. Room was very comfortable, good selection of teas and extremely clean. I was particularly looking forward to breakfast and it didn't disappoint. Great selection and the Cornish hot breakfast tasted really good.

We drove up the winding driveway and were greeted with the sight of Molesworth Manor. It felt like we had gone back in time and were visiting friends in the 1920's or about to walk onto the set of an Agatha Christie country house murder mystery! We were shown to our room - the Butlers room - and were made to feel very welcome. The communal drawing rooms were magnificent. There was an honesty bar with some very nice wine on offer, a good choice of music to listen to and a lovely feel to the place. The breakfast was simply amazing. I started every morning with yoghurt and fruit salad with seeds sprinkled on top - it was delicious. Then followed different types of bread toasted with delicious jam and marmalades topped of with a cooked breakfast of your choice and a daily specials board. The poached eggs were really good. And don't get me started on the muffins.......! It was conveniently placed to tour the Padstow area and we were sad to leave. We will definitely be back. Great house, great hosts and great breakfast!

We wanted a quiet English Guest House for our honeymoon.
We couldn't have chosen better.
The property was stunning, our room was lovely, and the owners couldn't do enough for us.
This all helped make a perfect honeymoon break.
Thankyou, see you next year for our anniversary.

My son and I stayed one night recently in this fine old house. It was pleasantly olde worlde in that there was an honesty bar where you recorded any drink that you had and settled the tab in the morning. Very refreshing in this cynical world. Breakfast was freshly cooked in the morning, much better than the buffet breakfast provided by so many hotels these days.
