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.

A gracious Georgian house with a fascinating history, of which the hostess is an integral part. The sea facing rooms have bay windows where you can sit and watch the boats pottering around in the harbour. Cornish hospitality at its best.

We stayed at Braganza in July (review on Google) and enjoyed it so much that we decided to stay again in October. It’s lovely to return to a place and find it just the same, if not better. You are instantly made to feel so welcome by Krysia who is such a charming and fun host, full of wonderful anecdotes about the house, gardens and life in general. We chose the same room with the harbour view which has such a big comfy bed and of course the amazing view. Nothing is too much trouble and you leave feeling refreshed and relaxed. Thanks Krysia!

We cycled to Braganza from Ladock and stayed one night. The visit was excellent. The view from our twin room was amazing. Our host Krysia was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The continental breakfast was extensive and the coffee spot on. The little side bit for bike storage under cover was just the job. The shower was clean and the warm water plentiful. A quirky house with plenty of interesting family history. It would be a shame if this place was every modernised. Genuine class, uncontrived. The short hill up from the town by bike nearly killed me and must be one of the steepest that I have conquered. A side gate into the grounds of the house is ideal when walking back after a meal somewhere in the town.

Braganza is a wonderful base to explore St Mawes and the surrounding area. It is quirky and eccentric in all the right ways, and the Countess is charming and hospitable. The house itself is a Grade 2 listed local jewel, a short (but steep) stroll to the many pubs and restaurants in the centre of town. But it is just far enough from the centre to be blissfully quiet at night, and high enough to have glorious views of the bay. My bed was very comfy and the blackout curtains very effective. We could not have felt more welcome. Highly recommended.

We had a great time here. Krysia was great fun and we felt as if we had known her for years. When we arrived we had tea in the garden and ended up chatting to other lovely guests and breakfast was the same. Our room was cosy and comfortable and like wandering through a Daphne Du Maurier setting for one of her novels. We were sorry to leave for the ferry after a beautiful continental breakfast.

There are numerous reasons to visit Cornwall’s St Mawes. One of them is Braganza. This living monument to a Polish memory has a story to tell if you’re interested. But it’s not for everyone. If you prefer minimalist modernity, forget it! Braganza’s proprietor Kyrisia, readily shares with you all about the house and its romantic, if torrid connection with an exciting escape from Poland. Subject of a well-researched book, you can learn about her Polish mother the charismatic Zofia whose presence pervades Braganza. When Krysia finally retires, who else will take over? Or will this extraordinary time capsule suffer the ultimate fate of clearance and conversion? Stuffed with Victoriana, strange carvings, and countless memorabilia, it includes an enormous, slightly intimidating Polar Bear skin flat against the main wall of the dining area. This place is part museum and part B&B.The rooms are all comfortable and each has its own mix of strange objects, anonymous pictures and comfortable chairs. Book one of the few rooms that look onto the garden and the stunning view of the bay, and you may never want to leave. Breakfasts will appall some visitors. No scrambled eggs or rashers of unhealthy bacon, or slick sausages. Instead, there’s a wonderful mix of fresh fruit, hot croissants, and more than adequate coffee, chocolate or tea. Stay at Braganza for the experience, not just convenience. Riddled with romance, sadness and mystery, one day someone will ask you “Tell us about Braganza.”

The huge, elegant house in it's own beautiful grounds is nearly as stylish as it's owner, Krysia. Service from a different era, when nothing was a problem and guests are almost treated like Royalty. A touch of racy Princess Margaret and beautiful Lady Di rather than poor old Fergie. The history of the place seeps into your every step, coupled with spotless bathrooms and bedrooms. Copious amounts of varied food for your Continental breakfast with a tale or two from the host will set you on your way in magical St Mawes. I visit twice a year and have done for over 10 years to get my fix. Unique and rather special indeed.

Krysia, the proprietor, provides a very friendly welcome and is extremely kind and helpful. The house itself is full of character, in a superb position with stunning views, very close to the village centre. Our room was of a generous size, clean and comfortable, containing many personal books and pictures. We also had a very good, spacious en-suite bathroom. Although not a cooked breakfast, it was very enjoyable with plenty of choice of fresh fruits, cereal and bread/croissants. As it is an old house however, expect fixtures and fittings to be of a certain age and in parts in need of a little tlc, but everything worked and it all added to the charm.
