Applecroft Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #12 of 97 St Austell B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 20, 2009

We stayed at Applecroft for 3 nights. We had booked the B&B in spite of its relatively high price as we thought it would have a more personal touch than a hotel. Nothing could be further from the truth.

On our arrival there was plenty of parking space, the couple who run the B&B seemed friendly and welcoming and the room looked clean and beautiful. However, as the days progressed we had several unpleasant surprises.

When we arrived we were asked for our selection of breakfast and asked if it was OK for us to have it at 8am. After that we did not have any opportunity to change it. We hardly had any interaction with the owners - we spoke much more with other guests than with our hosts. A full English breakfast consisted of three spoons of muesli, followed by a single egg, a single sausage, a single rasher of bacon and a single grilled tomato. Usage of toilet rolls, which also had to function as tissues, seemed to be rationed as we did not get a new roll on the penultimate day of our stay. As a result we had to improvise with our own tissues after a late night arrival back in the room. But worst of all, towels which we had put on the floor so they would get replaced were simply put back on the towel rail.

After our stay at the Applecroft B&B we moved to a four-star resort which had the same price per night. It was simply in a different league. The most notable difference: the staff at the hotel genuinely cared!

Overall an excellent stay at Applecroft - the owners are very friendly and accomodating - we stayed in the garden room that was very big - own on suite, views over the garden and a large sofa. Excellent cooked breakfast at a time to suit and overall Applecroft makes a good place to stay in Cornwall for visiting the local area - very close to Charlestown and other places such as Fowey. Applecroft is close to the beach and a number of good resturants and only a short drive to St Austell. Would definitely stay here again.

We booked our stay through laterooms.com last minute and there was no picture on there so we were not expecting much. We couldnt have been more wrong we found our stay at Applecroft wonderful, it is a family run b & b and the couple who run it were so friendly and made our stay special.

We had an suite on the ground floor over looking the garden. The room was what you would expect in a hotel, it was immaculate and the room was so tasteful it had the wow factor. (makes a change from some of the grotty places we have stayed in)

Location couldnt have been better either it is metres from the beach well you can see the sea from their gate! Charlestown the nearest harbour town is definately worth a visit as is the eden project which is only 2 miles away!!

If you are looking for a great affordable b & b then try them out their number is 01726 810878.

Highly recomended we will be back they even sent on an item of clothing we left behind.
