We were greeted by Neil and Sheila who made us feel very welcome. Our room was on the top floor (room 1) and had a spectacular sea view. Our breakfast was home cooked and very tasty. High standard throughout and would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for 2 nights recently and loved this B&B. We had a room (#3) with a wonderful view of the coast overlooking the cemetery. The house is very well kept and spotless. Nicely decorated, not fussy. Breakfasts were first rate. The hosts are congenial and most helpful. Suggest booking ahead as rightfully popular. It is very close to the...

My twenty year old daughter Maddie and I spent three delightful days at West by Five last Spring. We had adjacent rooms on the first floor (2nd floor American). We had prearranged for a taxi driver to meet us at Newquay Airport and bring us to West by Five. As we pulled up to the B&B, we saw that amazing...

The fact that this is my first-ever Tripadvisor review must count for something...trust me. I'm not typically one to write a review unless I really mean what I have to say; and truly, I've got nothing but the best things to say about West by Five. I stayed for 4 nights in Room 1, the only room on the top...

We took a last minute trip to the UK. We knew we wanted to go to Cornwall but weren't sure where. Trip advisor had wonderful reviews of West by Five so we called about availability. After having a delightful chat with Sheila, we booked room #2 based on her description. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by Neil and made...
