“Wonderful people wonderful breakfast wonderful wonderful wonderful”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Firstly - I need to tell you the nature of my trip - I am a single female travelling alone with my 4 year old son on a bit of a roadtrip. We'd decided to pack up and visit the various coasts in and around cornwall. We did everything on an ad hoc basis - which sometimes resulted in below par accommodation - not so for the smugglers rest. We literally pulled up outside and were lucky enough to find one spare room. The first thing which I noted was that rather than just sell me the room - which many B&B owners woluld have done - the landlady discussed with me the other guests she had staying that night (there were a couple of stags) and she wantyed to make me aware of that before I committed to taking my money and potentially having my lovely 4 year olds sleep disturbed. Luckily it wasn't - also for anyone with children this is such a family friendly B&B - my son is animal crazy and the proprietors were more than patient with my boy and his hundreds of questions about the family pets. There's an honour bar, tv's in bedrooms all rooms clean and functional - we had en suite - not sure if they all are but presume so?? - the breakfast is FANTASTIC, and they cater to everyone's requirements - and it's all at a great price. Warm, friendly, wonderful people providing a fantastic service - Joe is already asking me when we can go back - and we most definitely will be. Could not recommend enough x x

Love this place!! I stayed here August Bank Holiday weekend in a group of five girls. It is most definitely one of the nicest places we have stayed in Newquay. The rooms are clean, spacious and homely, the breakfasts are superb and John and Ellen such lovely hosts, really welcoming, really make you feel at home, they cannot do enough for you! We almost certainly be back next year! Thanks again for a great stay guys xxxx

My husband and I and 2 of our friends have just come back home after a lovely bank holiday weekend stay at Smugglers Rest.

The rooms were spotless, spacious and very comfortable. There was a varied breakfast menu, made to order - yummy!

The couple who run the b&b were so incredibly friendly, helpful and very accomodating.

My husband and I will be in Newquay at least once every year for our wedding anniversary and Smugglers Rest will always be our first choice of accomodation.

I honestly cannot rate or recommend this place highly enough.

Howdy all.

All I can say is, as service was concerned, these guys win awards in my opinion.

Being best man to my mate, I sorted the stag do, and it was all on me. I was so pleased I booked this place. Friendly, easy going, helpful - the guv' and his mrs were real cards - mucked in with us during our "night before" breakfast conversations and generally wanted us to have a great time. Rooms very clean and spacious - they actually had us in a huge 6 man room and a 2 man room next to it! Very secure and safe and 2 seconds from the main strip which makes staggering home easy as pie. It's a B&B so if you want the Ritz then dont bother. But as far as value for money is concerned and service these guys are great, Wouldnt reccomend this particularly to elderly or people wanting quiet getaway, as it's bound to be populated by guys and gal's out on the razzle. But a great place...hats off!!
