“The owners are so helpful and kind, they went above and beyond”
Reviewed 4 July 2011

We stayed here for 2 nights and were allocated room 4 which had a superking bed and private ensuite. The room was large, full of character but had all the mod cons you'd need too.

The breakfasts were amazing, a huge fruit salad with every type of fruit was available and cereals, toast and a full english. What struck us was that nothing was too much trouble.

The owners were only too happy to help us with our odd requests like a needle & thread, freezing our ice packs and Geoff even lent my husband a pair of his cufflinks!!

When we're next down in St Agnes we would definitely consider staying here again.

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home by the owners Geoff and Ali.Our room was spacious, clean and well equipped.We liked the fact that we had fresh milk brought to our room every day for our tea and coffee which made such a nice change from the usual little plastic pots of UHT!The breakfasts were fantastic and a real incentive to get out of our comfy beds in the morning.Our 10 year old was particularly impressed by the pool table in the games room and the flat screen tv in our room which he could tilt in the direction of his bed!The lounge was cosy and a great place to relax in at the end of a busy day at the beach.The hotel is ideally located in one of the best villages on the north coast of Cornwall(in our humble view!) which has lots of places to eat and drink and is family friendly.We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to others and will certainly return.

Lovely character B & B right in the heart of St Agnes, the host, Geoff made us very welcome and happily showed us the rooms before we decided to stay. As Aussies traveling through Cornwall we really love any period properties so the quaint room with it's totally uneven floor, low beams and stone walls was all part of the experience. Our breakfast was lovely served by Geoff and Ali, and really hearty, cereals with beautiful fruit and yoghurt, a full cooked English breakfast with local sausages bacon and egg. We would definitely recommend a night or two at the Porthvean.
