Jackie and Steve were the perfect hosts for our first visit to Cornwall. Everything was perfect from the lovely room, the delicious breakfasts, the comfortable guest lounge to the decking area with the wonderful views. Their local knowledge was second to none which we really appreciated. We would certainly recommend The Lookout Guesthouse to anyone who is visiting St Austell....

Jackie and Steve were terrific hosts... knowledgeable, helpful, welcoming, warm and friendly. Their home is spacious, very clean, and each room is well appointed. Even the sheets are lovely. And there are goodies each day. And breakfasts are yummy. And there are views. This is a "don't miss" place.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jackie and Steve hope you will find all the information you require to inspire you to join them for a memorable stay in their welcoming luxury guesthouse in St Austell. The Lookout Guesthouse is a bespoke architect designed house with spectacular panoramic views over St Austell Bay. We offer a boutique Garden Suite and two beautifully appointed luxury guest bedrooms (The Sea and The Cove). All rooms complete with superb large en-suites. We are situated 5 minutes from the Eden Project and close to many of Cornwall's major attractions. Breakfast is served in our unique octagonal breakfast room or during the summer months on our decking overlooking St Austell Bay. Begin your day with a choice of fruit juices, cereals, muesli, fruit compote and yoghurt whilst you await your freshly cooked English breakfast. Alternatively, you can always try one of our specials, for example; scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, or poached eggs on a toasted muffin. With a pot of freshly brewed tea or a cafetiere of ground coffee you will be set up for a full day exploring the delights of Cornwall! Our produce is locally sourced from quality suppliers. Where possible, we strive to use Fairtrade products. As Jackie is a coeliac, a gluten free menu is always available. ... more   less
