“Cornish hospitality at its best.”
Reviewed October 1, 2010

We stayed for 6 days, have never been to cornwall before but would thoroughly recommend it. The people are so friendly and never seem stressed like us Londoners!!! Alexandra Heights is the best b and b we have stayed in bar none. The room was gorgeous and very clean and the bathroom was enourmous. Patsy and Paul, the owners, are so lovely and nothing was ever too much bother, their local knowledge is invaluable for days out. Patsy's breakfast's were to die for and set us up for the day and when I mentioned that my husband was intolerant of certain foods she brought in special cereal and bread just for him, the PERFECT hostess. Would i come back here, just try and stop me.

We decided on Alexandra Heights as we were going to need somewhere central to the places we wanted to visit in Cornwall. I have to say we were not dissapointed! The warm welcome from Patsy was a good sign that we had picked the right place. The room and bathroom were immaculate. The breakfast delicious!! Patsy and her husband Paul were very well informed as to the places to visit..Wreckers fish restuarant in Charlestown was superb! And the charming Mevagissey was a delight. We will definitely be returning to stay at Alexandra Heights as B&B's like this are far and few between!! Excellent!!

We chose this B&B as a base for visiting the extremely popular Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan during a recent holiday in Cornwall. The owners Paul and Patsy could not have been more welcoming. We loved the house which has lots of Arts and Crafts type features. I especially loved the corner bath and soaked luxuriously in it each of the two nights of our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for Patsy who cooked us delicious breakfasts each day. She was knowledgeable about the area and recommended Charlestown as a good place to visit. Unfortunately we did not have time to spend very long there although Patsy did recommend a fabulous fish restaurant there where we enjoyed a wonderful meal. We drove to Cornwall but the mainline station for the cross country trains to Penzance is just round the corner from the B&B and I would consider returning by train to see the sights I did not have time to see this visit. No hesitation in recommending this B&B

Stayed here earlier this year.
Was a lovely friendly place and the beds were the best I've slept in :-)
The breakfast was rather nice too.

So all in all a great bed and a great breakfast :-)

We have stayed in many drab B&B's around England and Europe and have become used to the poor quality for top dollars! That's why we decided to post a review for Alexandra Heights in St Austell as this lovely little gem blew us away! It's the perfect base for a break in Cornwall, we were there for a gig at the Eden Project which is just four miles from Alexandra Heights, the beautiful Charlestown is right next door and the train/bus station at the top of the road will take you anywhere else you wish to go!. This lovely family run B&B is spotless, the serene decor made a nice change from dated 70's look of normal B&B's and the full English breakfast was delicious. We found the proprietors very friendly, not intrusive, just genuinely kind, nothing is too much trouble and they really go all out to ensure you have a fantastic stay - we can't rate this place highly enough, it really made our weekend special. We will without a doubt use it as our base next time we visit Cornwall - FANTASTIC!!!

We stayed at this B&B for a week in May 2009 and could not fault it. It is situated within walking distance from the train station and bus stop so traveling about is easy if you do not have a car . The friendly proprietors, Patsy and Paul recommended a very reasonable car hire company to us which we used and were very pleased with (there are parking facilities at the B &B). The rooms are nicely decorated (tea and coffee and biscuits provided in rooms) and are extremely clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were really good, Patsy will ask you what you would like the night before - she is a great cook! For places to eat in the evening,there are some restaurants nearby in St Austell or further down the road in Charlestown. I would say that this B&B is really good value for money and the proprietors are very friendly and helpful in giving advice on where to go, how to get there etc. On reading the comments in their visitors guest book and seeing the thank you cards they received I think that other visitors have felt the same as me!
