We stayed at this B&B recently and we would highly recommend it. It is located a short walking distance from the costal path and pretty much in the centre of Portreath. The owner is really kind, helpful and you can have a good conversation. If we had a need to travel through Portreath again, we would be staying here. Thank... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was lovely to meet you and I'm glad I could help with the drying out issues. I wish I could have helped with the weather too! I will let the Portreath Arms know how much you enjoyed your meal. Kind regards Gillian More

Wonderful welcome and very comfortable stay. Great location for walkers, being on the SWCP. Facilities very good and clean. Good range of food for breakfast. Fairly quiet location as off the main road, but close enough to sea front for all the facilites.

We stayed at Cliff House for a weekend break. Our host Gillian was fantastic. The breakfast menu was quality and there was the pub just next door ! The rooms were spotless and the great location was ideal for the local beach and harbour just a stroll down the road. Will be back!

My room wasn't en suite but I was offered a bathrobe for my trips down the corridor, and for the two rooms which were not en suite there was a toilet/shower and separate toilet so there was never going to be any problems. Bedroom was comfortable and breakfast very good (scrambled eggs and smoked salmon). Recommended
