Cleanliness excellent. A warm friendly greeting. Breakfast again excellent. So close to bus station and taxi's for daily stress free day trips. Ron and Barbara were the perfect hosts. Everything you could want in a relaxing break away for it all.

This was a lovely place to stay at the end of our week in Cornwall. Although we were on the ground floor, we still had lovely views across the bay. We arrived earlier than anticipated but were made very welcome and were able to access our very comfortable room straightaway. Breakfast was good and there was no problem about leaving...
