Location is within walking distance of Polzeath, Daymer Bay and the Rock to Padstow ferry. Family who own and run the place are very friendly and welcoming and nothing is to much trouble. The rooms are immaculate with flat screen smart TV, tea and coffee making and ours was en-suite. There is a communal lounge room downstairs with a large... More

We have been coming here for the last 5 years and have never had a bad meal. The seafood hotpot is delicious. The food is all cooked perfectly and the proprietors and their son are extremely warm and friendly. This is restaurant is highly recommended 5 stars.

We stayed at the white heron for 5 nights from the 14th June. The room and on suite were as clean and fresh as any top hotel. We ate in the restaurant each night and the food was excellent. Nothing was to much trouble for the owners and their son. Many of the people eating there were staying elsewhere, but... More

Great bed and breakfast - lovely rooms, really great ensuite bathrooms and very good food. Would have given it 5 Stars except for the fact that my partner had to cancel at the last moment and I was still charged the double rate.

this is why you look for bed and breakfast places. An experience to talk about later and make friends jealous. At first I was skeptical and ordered a "safe" dinner.

I stayed in this hotel whilst on a photography assignment in the area. This wasn't my first stay, also stayed there about 11 months earlier and decided to return as it was good. It's a great hotel. Great rooms, great food great hosts and reasonably priced. Would certainly recommend this hotel.
