Good Hotel Guide Review

‘I have travelled widely but never stayed in a place where I truly felt I was with a close friend.’ Owner Susan Stuart ‘has created a real treat’, says a Guide regular after this year’s visit to the ‘beautifully restored listed house’. After ‘a great welcome and offer of tea and chocolate or fruit cake, to a chilled glass of Prosecco to wish us well on our journey, she goes far beyond what one would expect’ – including an introduction to the person behind the Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens. The former Georgian Admiral’s house is now a ‘beautifully appointed’ B&B with contemporary and antique furniture, fresh flowers, and a calming coastal palette. Bedrooms are ‘spacious and special, each one with a quirk’. A bathroom with retractable glass roof, contemporary four-poster, an egg-shaped in-room bath. ‘Our room on the top floor had lovely harbour views even from the shower.’ Susan’s ‘marvellous, impossibly good-value’ communal dinner includes produce from local butchers, farmers, fishmongers and vineyards. Breakfast is fresh ‘to the extent of the whole piece of fish being shown to my wife before cooking’. (David Soanes, David Britton)

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
