We stayed here for four nights, and we cannot fault the place! Heidi and Chris gave us such a warm welcome and were very thoughtful throughout the stay, and the room was so comfortable - nothing had been missed. Every morning we had a wonderful breakfast - and the fact that we chose our time and menu for breakfast the...

One night stay during the worst storms in living memory but felt safe and comfy in this Victorian house on the hill. Amazing original coloured floor tiles in hall, and colourful cushions, carpet, curtains bedspread etc in bedroom, all clashing with each other, colourful but not restful on the eye! Very friendly hosts, with local maps & info provided. Big...

We spent one night here recently and really enjoyed it. Chris and Heidi have thought of everything you could possible need! The list is almost endless, bathrobes, sweets, hot chocolate, bubble bath, biscuits, extra heaters, books, magazines, DVDs etc. We received a warm and sunny welcome on a very wet and cold day. We will stay there again when we...

We are a young couple and spent last summer with Chris and Heidi during our 'attempt' at surfing! The style of the hotel is very quaint and Awesome. Will be going back, hopefully this summer. Location was also very good as it is a good central point to go explore Cornwall.

Chris and Heidi are fabulous hosts and they chose us a room that would meet our rather specific needs. They are friendly, accessible and seem always willing to go the extra mile. The room (suite) was fabulous and the breakfast a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Thank you!

Chris and Heidi deserve top ratings in every department. The rooms are warm and comfy with everything provided for and each with a personal touch. The breakfast is delicious and plentiful and you really feel welcome from the moment you artive. You might even get greeted by the house cat. Well worth a visit.
