Lovely welcome, spotlessly clean, fabulous breakfasts, attention to detail was exceptional. A first class b&b and we would highly recommend The Lookout. Thanks Jackie and Steve, you made us feel very welcome, home from home. Local information was very helpful, little messages at breakfast and the chocolate Easter bunnies were delightful. As we say in Wales, Diolch yn fawr iawn!...

The Lookout provides the highest standard of accommodation. The rooms are fresh, comfortable and very well appointed and everything is spotlessly clean.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jackie and Steve hope you will find all the information you require to inspire you to join them for a memorable stay in their welcoming luxury guesthouse in St Austell. The Lookout Guesthouse is a bespoke architect designed house with spectacular panoramic views over St Austell Bay. We offer a boutique Garden Suite and two beautifully appointed luxury guest bedrooms (The Sea and The Cove). All rooms complete with superb large en-suites. We are situated 5 minutes from the Eden Project and close to many of Cornwall's major attractions. Breakfast is served in our unique octagonal breakfast room or during the summer months on our decking overlooking St Austell Bay. Begin your day with a choice of fruit juices, cereals, muesli, fruit compote and yoghurt whilst you await your freshly cooked English breakfast. Alternatively, you can always try one of our specials, for example; scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, or poached eggs on a toasted muffin. With a pot of freshly brewed tea or a cafetiere of ground coffee you will be set up for a full day exploring the delights of Cornwall! Our produce is locally sourced from quality suppliers. Where possible, we strive to use Fairtrade products. As Jackie is a coeliac, a gluten free menu is always available. ... more   less
