Good Hotel Guide Review
Hidden in a back street of Padstow’s old town, these sybaritic B&B suites, created by chef Paul Ainsworth and his wife, are an ideal retreat for foodies. Three of Paul’s ventures – including the Michelin-starred Paul Ainsworth at No.6 – are in Padstow and nearby Rock. The spacious suites dazzle with rich fabrics and furniture as well as witty foodie hints – perhaps a candy-striped wallpaper or bedside tables made out of flour bins. Indulgent touches include a gold-and-white double-ended bath in one, and white French-style bed in another. A kitchen pantry, with bar and home-made treats, is run on an honesty basis and breakfast arrives in a hamper. For evening dining you can try one of the sister companies: The Mariners pub in Rock offers British classics while Caffè Rojano in Padstow has a casual menu of favourites such as pizza, pasta and grilled mackerel on sourdough (also the best choice for vegans). No.6 is the creative option with a limited-choice four-course menu of dishes such as morel with roast chicken and manzanilla sherry, and beef with seaweed savarin. Borrow a pair of the B&B’s wellingtons to work up an appetite.
