Had a wonderful stay at this B and B. Kev and Claire very friendly and welcoming. Situated in a little Cornish village but a great location for exploring The Lizard to Lands End and on into St Ives. Very accommodating with breakfast requests and rooms were so clean and fresh and comfortable. Would definitely recommend. Thanks for looking after us and for the great tips on places to eat, park and visit!

We booked the room called 'Baileys' which is large & overlooks the square. The decor is very tastefully done. It also had a large bathroom with a bath( I like my bubble baths) As we are still in the Covid era, breakfast was served in our room & I looked forward to Kevin's knock on the door each morning to see our delicious breakfast. We had the full English , my husband also tried the Cornish continental & I was lucky enough to have smoked salmon & scrambled eggs on the Sunday. All perfectly cooked & presented. The room has all the finishing touches & Kevin has plenty of chat & banter. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & highly recommend it.

We had a lovely stay in this stunning B&B for my girlfriend's birthday weekend, we had the Champagne room, which is a cozy room, perfect for two people, with a large bathroom and a nice view of the town square. The whole building is clean, tidy and well decorated with a friendly atmosphere from the owners, who also provide a great selection of breakfast choices. The B&B itself is located in a small town square which also includes 2 pubs with great food and drinks, a convenience shop, post office and 2 cafes within a few minutes walk, wonderful place in a perfect location

I reviewed OTH last year but feel the need to comment again. This must be the most spotless and clean B&B in the Country! Kevin and Claire are delightful and it’s a real pleasure to stay with them. Without doubt- see you again.
