Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Characterful and historic place to spend a night or two. Located not far off the A30 (although make sure you take the right exit!) this is a great place from which to explore central Cornwall, north or south coast. Jenny and her staff are warm and helpful, the rooms spacious and comfortable and the breakfasts ideal before a full day of Cornish tourism. Impersonal and charmless it is not!

We stayed for one night this week at St Benet's Abbey while exploring the area and visiting relations & from the moment we arrived we felt totally at home. Jenny & her team are so welcoming and caring & really made our stay absolutely wonderful. The Abbey is such a beautiful building with a bell tower behind which we could see from our room at the rear of the hotel. We walked down the footpath from the front of the hotel to the village of Lanivet which took just under 10 minutes where we had a lovely meal at the Lanivet Inn. The room was nicely furnished & the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with granola & fruit juice to start then I had smoked haddock with scrambled egg followed by toast & coffee served in a lovely dining room. Thank you so much Jenny & your team for making our stay so wonderful

We walked The Saints Way from Fowey to Padstow and back and spent the night at St Benet’s Abbey in Lanivet on both the outward and the return leg. We were greeted by our lovely friendly host Jenny, and felt thoroughly spoilt by the comfortable rooms and wonderful vegetarian breakfasts. We would definitely recommend St Benet’s Abbey.

From the moment you walk through the front door you are made very welcomed by Jenny and her team. We arrived for a night of paranormal investigation followed by a great night sleep in a comfortable bed. In the morning had a full English breakfast which was delicious and nothing was to much trouble. Looking forward to returning again soon.

This beautiful venue has the best hospitality in the county. The owners are so charming, it is always a location where you come back to. Plus the occasional ghost to find, which us ten investigators enjoyed immensely.

This is a good B&B but slightly surprised by the number of outstanding reviews. Our room was ok, but nothing special, quite basic and dated but very clean. The beds could have been more comfortable, mattresses need replacing. The breakfast was very fresh, generous with a decent selection. The quality was fine but not outstanding. For over £100 a night we expected it to be better. Overall it was fine for 1 night but unlikely we'd go back.

The best B&B! Some 5 star hotels could learn a thing or two from Jenny and her staff. St Benets is an old Abbey complete with Bell Tower. The property Is a listed building and is comfortable and cosy. If you are expecting a Hilton with a nespresso machine this is not for you. Jenny and her team are the embodiment of service excellence, every small detail is catered to. The rooms we stayed in were 4 and 6. 4 is a double room with a bath and 6 is a lovely combination of a double with a second room with a single bed in if you have a child. There is a fantastic shower. Tea and coffee facilities are in each room and stocked daily. The rooms are cleaned every day and the beds are comfortable. A fresh breakfast is made every morning and you can choose the time you wish it made for. Everyone remembered your name and it felt like you were in your own home amongst friends. This is a true gem in the middle of Cornwall. I shall no doubt recommend to friends and clients. We cannot wait to visit again. Thank you Jenny and staff for an unforgettable time.

We had a lovely stay at St Benet’s, a family run B&B where you’re made to feel very welcome. Very clean, rooms are serviced every day and a lovely breakfast, always served with a smile by Jenny and her staff. Will definitely be returning next year, hopefully for a longer stay, as it’s a great central location to get around North Cornwall from.

Great B&B in a beautiful building and lovely gardens. Hosts were very welcoming and friendly. The building has been carefully restored,. Our room was great with a huge wooden bed and comfortable. Good breakfast. Loved sleeping in a building with such a long history. This is not a modern B&B but one which has the charm and care of history and furnished appropriately, we loved it.
