Whilst located on the Main A390 into Town, its far enough back from it so as not to notice any traffic noise. The host Shirley was warm and welcoming throughout with nothing too much trouble throughout my 2 nights there. Single room was large with all the facilities you'd want including WI-FI, Bed was very comfy. Fantastic VFM and would...

I am not one to complain & don't like confrontation... However, I booked a single room for 4 nights whilst studying down in Cornwall. I called before I left to inform the lady I now know as Shirley that I would be arriving between 8-9pm. My common courtesy seemed to confuse her... It was dark when I arrived after a...

Me and a friend booked the twin room, tea and coffee making facilities were already in there, shirley showed us around and showed us what there was to do in lostwithiel. The owner is very friendly and has a lovely little cat. The cat is friendly but seems generally disinterested in the guests. No room keys were given to us...

We managed to book this guesthouse last minute as a result of a change in the weather. We're very glad we did, nice comfy bed, very accommodating owner. we woke to a lovely breakfast,with nice homemade marmalade. The house is turn of the century with all the old features retained. We would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed in this B&B twice and will be using it again next year. Shirley is a lovely lady who just requires a bit of old fashioned respect. The clue is in the name. Benthams is a bed and breakfast not a hotel. I found it clean and comfortable. I was not sure when we booked last year as...

I booked in on Friday for 1 night but by the following morning booked in for 2 more nights. I found the landlady Mrs Sanders to be very helpful and nice. Breakfast was very nice and sets you up for the day. My room overlooked her land and the room was lovely with tea/coffee tv and WiFi in there. The...

My partner and I decided to have a lovely weekend away and picked a privately run b&b in a small cornish village, or so we thought. From the moment we arrived we felt like an inconvenience, before we even got in the door we were rudely told 'can't you see the white lines?' When asking where is best to park....

I booked this for my boyfriend and I in Lostwithiel in what we thought was a privately run b&b with homemade treats at breakfast. It was not. Private bathrooms are advertised which of course we discovered on arrival as false, not a total loss we thought I'm sure the room will be lovely. Again, it was not. It was dusty,...

The 'very good' in the title is for people who don't have a giant pole stuck up their pampered backsides. It rates very good because the owner is friendly, hospitable and cooks you a great breakfast, and you get that for a very modest fee. I found this out when I causally enquired what it would cost to stay over...

The house is owned and run by a beautiful old lady called Shirley. She was very friendly and welcoming. The house is a large Victorian style with large rooms and everything working,despite the decor and facilities dating back from the 1950's. Our room was large and clean. Tea and coffee facilities are not available in the room, but we were...
