Good Hotel Guide Review

Be buoyed by the ‘coastal lightness’ at Sue Stuart’s personable guest house, in a ‘lovely’ location close to the harbour wall. ‘Immaculate and inviting, it’s the sort of place you revel in enjoying,’ say Guide inspectors in 2016. The 18th-century house has been ‘beautifully’ decorated: white-painted floorboards, a mix of antique and ‘interesting’ contemporary pieces, fresh flowers, ‘comfy’ sofas, a changing gallery of local artwork; a ‘chic’, ‘uncluttered’ feel throughout. ‘Every window frames a picturesque aspect – the harbour, the coastline, the adjacent church tower.’ ‘Spacious’ bedrooms on the upper floors have ‘fine sea views’; three rooms at the top share a landing with books and games – ideal for a family. On Friday and Saturday evenings, stay in for a communal dinner in the ‘gorgeous’ open-plan kitchen/dining area: over complimentary aperitifs, the ‘caring, hands-on’ hostess cooks ‘fresh, simple’ meals, perhaps pan-fried brill, Cornish early potatoes, samphire. In summer, take breakfast in the ‘pretty’ garden – the west Cornwall option of sizzled cod roe, smoked bacon and a poached egg makes a fine partner to the ‘splendid harbour views’.

Guest comments

'We (two families) stayed here for one night before heading to Tresco. Susan, who runs the place, has created a real treat. The six rooms are all spacious and special. Each one with a quirk. The food is marvellous and impossibly good value. Location a short walk from both the station and the quay is ideal too. All in all a wonderful hidden gem. ' - David Soanes - July, 2017
'This is the sort of B&B that epitomises the Good Hotel Guide, in a beautifully restored Grade II listed house. Susan Stuart goes far beyond any service you would get in a five-star hotel. From the great welcome and offer of tea and freshly made cake, Susan looks after your every need with professional charm. Breakfast is not to be rushed, as everything is cooked to order, and lots of conversation ensues at the communal tables. If you are going out to dinner you are welcomed in the kitchen for a complimentary glass of wine. We ate in one night which is communal with a short menu simply but well cooked and great value. Our room on the top floor had lovely harbour views even from the shower, and a big signature bath in the room itself. ' - David Britton - June, 2017
