Lovely Guest House which has recently been taken over by a charming young couple. The Guest house is within a 5 minute walk to the beach and 10 minutes from the town. The room was great, and recently refurbished. The linen was changed daily, as were all the essentials. Breakfast was second to none- You have whatever you wanted. Recommended...

Let me start by saying we are a very tolerant couple from Cornwall, but to get ripped off (£85p/night) for a very poor service is despicable. Visitors to Cornwall, please find a better place to stay. We believe in good value and good service for tourists to our County, but this place offers neither! Don't believe the hype of other...

Unfortunately this is not an honest review of the guest house as it has just been taken over 4 weeks ago and the problems that are stated were from a room that so far in our management has not had a couple stay in it as this is a single room. We also believe this has been a single room...

I read the reviews on this place prior to booking and had mixed thoughts however, are we glad we booked! There is a tiny bit of road noise, far outweighed by the sound of the Atlantic meeting the beach, just across the road. The views from the front facing rooms are comparable with the best 'rooms with a view' that...

We went there as a family of four for 4 nights on Boxing day. The first impression was that our rooms were cramped. Not much room to move, not enough room for decent storage of clothes. The beds were comfortable enough but I found it hard to sleep because the noise travels. There is a serious broken gutter so if...

We liked how close it was to the station and that it was only a short walk down the hill to everything in the town. The manager William was very friendly and welcoming, breakfast was delicious, and he made us bacon sandwiches to take with us because we were leaving and didn't have time for a full breakfast was great!!...
