Me, my partner and son stayed here for two nights. We had a modern, spacious room with a big en-suite with a bath and separate shower cubicle. The room had a lovely view over mounts bay and the tennis courts behind the property (which were free to use, and Steve kindly lent us some rackets). The breakfast meant we wasn't...

Stayed with my wife for a single night as we were visiting various places in Cornwall. The owner wasn't home when we arrived but a note on the door directed us to room three. This was a good sized room with a single and double bed and a nice sized ensuite shower room. The room was ok but attention to...

Found this BnB on trip advisor. Stayed 2 nights, wish we could have stayed longer. Rooms have a contemporary feel. Comfortable beds, we had the family room which had 2 bedrooms, so plenty of space. The breakfast as described by others was a major plus. Simple, fresh, convenient a relief from the cooked full English! Parking difficult. But this applies...

We were met by Steve on arrival a very pleasant host who was helpful and on hand when we needed any help. We haven't ever stayed in a place where you make your own breakfast in the room. There was chopped fruit, Greek yoghurt, jams, butter, orange juice and milk in the fridge and bread and eggs to cook in...

The place was very easy to find and just a little bit off the main road. It had convenient access to restaurants and shops, and was a reasonable walk from the train station and marina. The innkeeper offered a nice selection of local dining favorites, and we enjoyed the ones we selected. The room was immaculate and the breakfast options...

We stayed here and were made to feel very welcome. Our room was light and spacious, clean and it was in a great location. They have breakfast laid out in your room which we were enjoyed the freedom, along with a fridge and a microwave which were very useful.

Breakfast was unique,delicious, and satisfying. Proprietor was very helpful. Room was spotless and well decorated. Slept very well. The room temperature was perfect and the sound of the surf was soothing. Bathroom shower was very nice and towels were super thick.

Had a great time spent at Duporth Guesthouse ... I enjoyed not having to get dressed to attend breakfast but too have it in my room at my leisure.... Great idea and besides a much healthier option that a greasy breakfast .... Rooms are clean with a quiet atmosphere .. Within walking distance of the local pubs & restaurants .....

Flight was cancelled at Lands End, had to find B&B in a hurry. Friendly and helpful owner. Room comfortable and had all ingredients for breakfast in the room with fridge and microwave - table and chairs set. Different, but welcome as we did not need a cooked breakfast. Street parking is not easy, but possible. We did not have a...
