Edgecumbe Guest House, although in a good location, was not for us. From the moment we walked in, we noticed the decor was extremely dated and the accomodation was in great need of a makeover to be brought up to today's standards. The bedding was tired, faded and worn from many years of use. The carpets were also very old and dirty. Although the premises did not permit smoking, we found at least two cigarette burns in the carpet of our room. The shower in our room was old and the cubicle/shower tray was discoloured from years of use - again, all needed ripping out and updating. The house itself had an odd lingering smell in the hallway and upstairs. For £66 per room per night, I found Edgcumbe Guest House to be grossley over-priced by comparison to it's piers.
On a positive note, the breakfasts were excellent and the hosts were pleasant, but unfotunately it did not outweigh the negatives
