Steve and Jane are the perfect hosts and could not have been more helpful if they tried. The quality of the room we stayed in was by far the largest bed and breakfast room we have ever stayed in, and was surprisingly larger than the photographs on their easy to use web site indicated.
We hadn't given an arrival time and although were able to check in from 3.30, didn't arrive until about 5.00, however Steve was very welcoming and keen to show us our room and explain everything.
We had decided to eat out on the first night and went to the Rashleigh having previously found it on the web. Steve gave us a map and indicated an alternative route which albeit slightly longer than expected was a better walk and we were able to see the posher parts of St. Austell.
The Pool is great and Steve was up early to take the covers off when we'd said we'd use it in the morning at 7.30, both days plus on the Saturday afternoon.
Breakfasts were excellent although slightly surprised to just have Poached eggs with no toast! There was a good choice and plenty of Tea and Toast.
The room was well equipped with large flat screen tv and plenty of digital channels. plus dvd player etc. I would say that if you wanted to watch a dvd the choice wasn't vast and seemed to have a nautical theme, probably due to Steve being an ex-US navy Commander!
Mimi the cat came into our room on a couple of occasions and also enjoyed the luxurious rugs as she must have done on previous occasions.
Although our room faced onto the main road, the double glazing more than kept the noise out, however if the weather had been more July-like and windows were open, it may have been different. The one negative in the room was a strong smell of vanilla which may have been to some peoples taste but not ours, so we did keep windows open when possible
Overall we'd definitely recommend this B and B and hopefully will return in the future
