This was our first visit to Cornwall in many years. Living in Gibraltar we were not sure of what to expect from a B & B. All I can say is we had a great stay and Greg and Linda are fantastic hosts, this is much more of what we expected from a B & B and is on par...

Thank you for your review and we are really pleased you enjoyed yourselves and that you are coming back to see us. Hope the wedding was good but they are very tiring!! We might be seeing you in Gibraltar one of these days. Kind regards Lynda &Greg

This year we stayed here for 12 nights. After summer 2010 and 2012 it was our 3rd stay at this lovely B&B. The B&B is extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean throughout. Linda and Greg are most generous hosts. Nothing seemed too much trouble for Greg, who provided us with his lovely cooked breakfast, lots of information about regarding places to...

Thank you for your very kind review and it is a pleasure to have you to stay as you have become friends rather than guests and we always look forward to your return visits. You are always welcome and we look forward to seeing you in 2014. Best wishes Lynda &Greg

I can't thing of anything negative to say about Topos B&B. We had a decent size double room with a larger than average ensuite, all tastefully decorated with lots of nice touches to make you feel you are getting luxury at a very reasonable price. The common areas just for guests' use are like nothing we have come across in...

We arrived in St Austell and found Topos via trip advisor, gave them a call and they had a room available for 2 nights. First impressions - quirky :-) a deceptive house, a spacious entrance hall that has a spiral stairway down to the lower ground floor that is completely given over to the comfort of their guests. A large...

If you like sumptuous bedding, ensuite facilities and a more than a filling breakfast then this is the place for you. I was re-directed here after experiencing a 'No more room at the Inn' in what actually was a B&B former home of a boyhood friend. A short walk from the St. Austell town centre, I cannot recommend it enough....

We stayed in topos b&b over the easter bank holiday weekend. Upon arrival you drive down possibly one of the steepest hills you will ever drive down, it feels like your driving off the end of the earth at the top. Topos itself is outstanding, the rooms are very clean and tidy. The owners greg and lynda were extremely freindly...

Hi Mitchell and Katie, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Topos, I just wish the weather could have been a bit kinder. I am trying to encourage Greg to take me to all the restaurants we haven't been too yet purely for business reasons of course!! Frankie is as we speak running around like a...

We enjoyed a very comfortable 3 nights at Topos. A bit difficult to find, but we know St. Austell so followed our noses. At first sight, in winter, it was a bit offputting, as you are in effect staying in a private house. In winter the hanging baskets etc are dead - perhaps the owners should invest in some winter...

Thank you for your review and we are very glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We take your comments on board regarding the fruit for breakfast and it is sometimes a difficult one as it is the start of the Season and we have tried fresh and tinned fruit in the past but invariably just end up throwing it...

We stayed here for 4 nights during September 2012 and could not have chosen better. Room and bed were very comfortable. The guests' lounge and bar area, and the very warm welcome, made it a real home from home. So much so that I didn't want to leave on the last day - it felt like this was MY home...

Not your traditional B&B Great stay, Great Price, Fabulous Breakfast, Wonderful hosts Greg & Lynda. Little surprises everywhere....complementary soap, shampoo in the bathroom, chocolates, cookies on tea/coffee tray. Ice cold water in a carafe on bedside table. On arrival you wonder where you'll fit in, the hill approach is unnerving... but welcomed in Greg takes you on a tour of...

This is a relaxed, friendly and spacious B&B with a unique interior that will make you feel like you've discovered a well hidden secret. The rooms are spotless and extremely comfortable. The bathrooms are fresh & clean and as others have remarked, the towels are huge. The entire interior is enhanced with artwork and you have to see the main...
