A friend and I recently stayed here as part of our South West Coast Path walk and really appreciated our time here. After accidentally walking 2 miles the wrong direction away from the B and B after a 15 mile hike, Alicia and Clive were very accommodating ! Absolutely delicious vegan breakfast too - we are both vegan so were really happy to be provided for so well ! WiFi in our room was quite intermittent but definitely recommend a visit here :)

Thank you for your kind comments and we're really pleased you enjoyed your stay and breakfast. Despite having a wifi booster for the internet it is more reliable in some rooms rather than others. We don't currently have fibre optic broadband in Porthallow but one day...! :)

Very nice welcome from the hosts and we were very comforted by the COVID-19 measures that had been taken. The property is down a narrow lane but it's to be expected in rural Cornwall. The location is fantastic and we had a lovely sea view from our bedroom. I had some great banter with Clive quite a few times during our stay. he cooked absolutely fantastic breakfasts both days but I told him otherwise and we had some good laughs. We had some sensible conversations too and some of his travel stories are fascinating! I can highly recommend this B&B for hospitality, cleanliness, location and the breakfasts. Well done, other B&B's should use this one as THE one to strive for, sadly most fall well short....

Great B&B with Clive and Alicia going beyond their role for me, thank you. I had the room with a lovely view over Porthallow, and enjoyed use of the lounge with its eccentricities. For walking the SWCP excellent position with a lovely breakfast to start your day. Highly recommend with their spot on COVID-19 adherence.

Beautiful area, excellent for cycling, walking and swimming. Lovely views from my single ensuite room which was larger than I expected. Parking available at hotel or otherwise at the beach. Wi-Fi available though a little temperamental in my room. Clive and Alicia made me feel very welcome and they had done everything they could to manage the risks of Covid so I felt safe staying here. Wide choice available for breakfast and a fridge and microwave available for guests use. Excellent value for money. I had a truly lovely stay and would thoroughly recommend it.
