My partner and I stayed at the Carlill Guest House on the last week in July which makes it the third time in the last four years. For a change, this time we brought our 10 year old granddaughter and we were all made very welcome indeed. As in previous years we very much enjoyed our stay, the rooms are...

This is a traditional al guest house. It might not be boutique style but the room we stayed in (3) was large and we'll supplied with chairs and storage. A lovely view of the sea at Porthminster. Quiet yet very well located for access to the town. The free parking is an added bonus. Linda and Graham are pleasant but...

On arrival we were warmly greeted by Lynne, the owner. The guest house is in a great location, 5 minutes from the town downhill (10 back up the hill!) and the beach 10 minutes away. We were allocated room 5 with a partial view of the sea and harbour. The room was fine with a small bathroom with shower, plenty...

Reading other reviews, I cannot be as complimentary as most of the others so perhaps we were unlucky. The owner is very friendly, the B&B is in a good position and our room was large with a good view.

I stayed just one night in this lovely BnB. It was very comfortable, the bed was so nice with crisp fresh cotton sheets and lots of feather pillows. My room was very comfortable and had a very nice view down over the village which was only a short walk down the hill. I had safe parking for my rental car....
