We booked this B&B for 1 night to be close to the Eden Project. Host-Nikki is very welcoming. Just couple of things you need to know. Parking-extremely dangerous to drive-in&out. If you have bigger car (more than mid-size) you won’t be able to park safely. You can try but you might get a heart-attack trying to turn. Room-we got blue...

Very clean rooms, hospitable owner, lovely breakfast and Merlin the dog who is simply adorable. It is not super fancy and glam but a true home away from home. Can really recommend it! This is a good place to start your sightseeing from: Charlestown, Fowey, Eden project are all within short distance,

Fantastic personal hospitalty. Cosy bedrooms and very clean bathrooms. We were given a delicious breakfast with eggs made with clotted cream (yammi). The owners dog was very well behaved and an extra bonus to a lovely stay.

Never even made it through the door. Booked through booking.com. Check in from 4pm. Received a message on the day asking for a check in time, said 4-6pm. No one there. Phoned owner who was 30 minutes away and said she didn't like my attitude from that 1 call and wouldn't let me stay. Barrage of rude texts followed. Never...

You were not booked to stay at my b&b, and because of the abuse you gave i would not allow you to stay. I have a duty of care towards my guest and under no circumstances would i expect my other guest to be subject to such drunken,aggressive, vulgar,abusive behaviour.

This was a great stay. I booked super late and they were more and accommodating!! It was exactly what we needed. Good rooms. Super clean!! Great breakfast, staff, incredibly comfy beds and an adorable softie dog you'll want to take home with you. Great value for money. Would definitely stay in & recommend this hotel again. Thanks Nikki

Arrived at the stated time, rooms not ready! Asked to go away and come back! It was cold and wet! Returned rooms still nit ready! The dog was all over the B & B which I feel isn't acceptable. They were friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. However I've stayed in better places which were a lot cheaper!...

Lovely welcoming landlady, nothing too much trouble, clean room with en suite and delicious breakfast cooked to order. 10 minute walk from the town centre so very convenient. Only £35 per night so don't expect 'boutique' !

We had a family room at the top of the house. There was plenty of space with a double bed and a single in one room and a double in the other. A large flat screen TV, large dining table, mini fridge and microwave also present. The room also benefited from a large private bathroom. Breakfasts were very good with...
