Having read the tripadvisor reviews, only one wasreally negative. I agreed with the majority; the guest house is clean and the owner is very friendly and helpful. Could find no fault with the breakfast either. The decoration of the rooms was a bit dated and maybe a bit shabby- in need of re-decorating. But as the price for a family... More

I spend a weekend almost monthly in Torpoint and St. James Guest House is my stay during the visits. Tiny and Tracy are very friendly and welcoming, and the room (regular one) is very good and clean. A great value for money!

The St James Guest House is a small family run business. Clean and friendly and most importantly within walking distance of all buses and the car ferry into Plymouth. The owner is called Tiny but the reception and food is anything but. We stayed for 3 nights whilst visiting several National Trust properties close by and Tiny leant us a... More

A very friendly, family orientated guest house. Very clean and tidy and definitely did not smell of dogs as some reviews have mentioned. The dogs were friendly (we may now get a Great Dane) and not at all intimidating. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for our hosts. We also stayed in the family room with the bunk beds... More
