River setting was fantastic for a morning stroll after cooked breaky. Had room 6 which had nice view of the river, excellent soundproofing meant for a great nights sleep too. Only stayed for a night but...

The Old Vicarage at St Clements Truro is worth every one of its 5 star rating. Wonderful peaceful location with beautiful views across the a River. We decided to splash out for the Luxury King terrace room but it was worth every penny. In comparison to other "luxury" B and B's this one is the finest. Our room was a...

Being as disorganised as ever we arrived in Cornwall for a short break with no-where to stay. Actually, we started off in the Gower Peninsular but changed our minds (another story). We arrived tired and dishevelled but immediately fell in love and booked a 2nd night. This hotel has been lovingly and tastefully renovated to provide high quality accommodation. Our...

We stayed at the Old Vicarage for a short weekend break. The place is beautifully decorated, the rooms are comfortable and very spacious and the en-suite is done to such a high spec that you press a button and it starts raining! :) We stayed in room 2 and you get the bonus of a balcony facing the river which...

We only stayed at the Old Vicarage for one night, but we had a great time. The hotel is set in a really beautiful and peaceful location, overlooking a river. Our room on the top floor was immaculate and comfortable. The couple who ran the hotel were very friendly, and the breakfast they served was very tasty - and it...

Booked here for a couple of nights after our regular B+B in Cornwall had no availability. Had a quick look through Trip advisor and found the Old Vicarage. The reviews for this place are not wrong. We were greeted with a warm welcome and shown to our room, a lovely clean room with a lovely finish to it. The little...

We stayed at this luxury B & B four years ago when it first opened and really enjoyed our visit. We decided to have an Autumn break in Cornwall and planned our visit around a return The Old Vicarage. This stay was even better than the first! We received a very warm welcome and although we were offered an upgrade...

Fantastic place to stay. Warm and welcoming with lovely comfortable and well appointed rooms. Breakfast was very inclusive with a friendly surrounding of guests who were mostly repeat customers and hosts. This is one of the best B&Bs we've stayed in!

What a lovely couple our hosts were. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were amazing. All had been individually designed in exquisite detail with a true craftsmans touch. The shower rooms were constructed to a very high standard and were amazing. Breakfast was of the very best quality and plentiful. Beautiful surroundings and ample local knowledge completed our stay.
