We'd had a decent stay in this clean and comfy b&b. Sadly it was spoiled when my husband and I woke in the middle of the night (at 0430) to find Peter, the owner of The Elms Guest House, SAT ON THE END OF OUR BED IN A DRUNKEN STUPOR!!! Incoherent and absolutely blotto! Most distressing; completely ruined our break....

Perfect stay at Peter's B&B, everything provided, well organised, beds really comfy, bathrooms exemplary, fully recommended! Well placed in the centre of St Austell, shops nearby and a picturesque stream coming down from the hills.

I was staying just the one night but I was made very welcome. The room had everything one could need with a very comfortable bed and a good shower. A lovely breakfast served by the owner the next morning was the icing on the cake.

Our room although a little small for 2 single beds, was very comfortable and clean, and Peter who runs the Guest House on his own, was the perfect host and worked hard to make...
