Good Hotel Guide Review
Susan Stuart’s welcoming Georgian town house B&B is so beautiful, it might grace the pages of an interiors magazine. Light-filled rooms in soft greys, greens and blues are a gallery for works from Newlyn Art School. All bedrooms have a view over the harbour to St Michael’s Mount, a bathroom with deep bath or monsoon shower and hand-made toiletries. Three at the top, one with in-room bath, share an open-plan landing under a sliding glass roof. Two self-catering suites in an adjoining building are ideal for longer stays. You can relax in the drawing room or on a sunny terrace. There is no bar, but tea, coffee, cakes and drinks can be had all day from the kitchen, where you breakfast on smoothies, locally smoked salmon, sourdough bread, hot dishes cooked to order, with tempting veggie options. Sunday brunch is served until midday. On Fridays and Saturdays guests can sit down to a supper of local ingredients – maybe Newlyn crab cakes, organic steak or wild mushroom risotto. Susan really makes the place, readers tell us: ‘It’s like staying with a close friend’; ‘Susan has created a real treat.’
