We love Cornwall especially the beaches. This Hotel provides the best views just outside of your room. A really friendly place to stay with a fantastic breakfast in a very friendly environment. A very clean and caring hotel with a great honesty bar/shop.

Barbara and Paul were the best hosts we ever had. Absolutely nice and quiet place with great breakfast. Fantastic sea views from the room and nice garden to share. This B&B is an ideal place to start for nice places like Kynance Cove, Porth Chapel Beach or visiting towns like Truro

We had a wonderful time staying at this B&B. Barbara gave us such a warm, personal welcome and made us feel like honoured guests during our visit. The rooms are light, clean and airy (with a sea view!), and the beach is a five minute walk away. Breakfast was delicious, and there was plenty of choice for those who didn't...

Great welcome from Barbara on our arrival, lovely location and sea view from our window with a Juliet balcony. Bed was really comfy I slept like a log. Good size bathroom with a roomy shower and lovely big soft bath sheets. Fridge at the top of the stairs for guests use, great idea. Good breakfast cooked well and not greasy....
