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.

This is the 4th time I have been here in the last 8 years, as always it's absolutely faultless, John's front of house service is wonderful, he clearly must have a good employee in the kitchen as the food certainly matches the service! Thanks again for yet another lovely stay!

Our annual golf trip was hosted by Anita and John at Links Side - directly opposite the golf club. They even saved me by extending my booking when I had booked one night less than my mates! Clean and comfortable rooms and can recommend the Full English breakfast.

Stayed at Links Side for one night whilst walking in North Cornwall. Booking and communication prior to visit were easy and excellent. As two walking buddies we shared a top floor twin room with en-suite shower room. Comfortable beds and room entirely adequate for our needs. As a vegetarian and a vegan the hosts understood our dietary requirements and provided an excellent cooked breakfast and packed lunch, just what we needed to set us up for the day and keep us going during our walk. Links Side overlooks the golf course and is close to the town centre, convenient and quiet. On street parking outside is unrestricted between 6pm and 9am and restricted to 2hrs during the day so great for an overnight stay. If longer term parking is required there’s a car park across the road. John is an excellent welcoming host, friendly without being ‘in your face’, just what I like. Only very minor issue is the tiny hand basin in the en-suite which wasn’t much use apart from brushing teeth but shower was excellent and we found it easiest to just take a shower rather than attempt washing in the hand basin. WiFi was good. All in all an excellent overnight stay in a very comfortable and friendly guest house. Thank you

Really lovely place, walking distance to beach and town. Four of us in two rooms for a night. Rooms were spacious and immaculately clean. Check in was smooth and quick. En suite facilities good with a nice electric shower. A special mention for the magnificent large fluffy towels. Too many places provide towels the size of flannels with the absorbent qualities of sandpaper. Not here. Breakfast was fulsome, freshly cooked, delicious and with plenty of options. All in all, pretty much spot on in every aspect.

We had an excellent stay at Links Side over the Easter weekend, it was our first time in Bude. The guesthouse is superbly located on the edge of town and close to all amenities but with lovely views across the golf course to the coast. Parking was easy and we managed to park for free all weekend, through a mix of parking a short walk away in the daytime and overnight outside the B&B. The hosts are superbly friendly and so accommodating, we felt extremely well looked after. The breakfasts were also excellent quality with a very efficient service. Our room was spacious, had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Overall we had a lovely break and will certainly look forward to staying at Links Side again when we return to Bude. Thankyou.

We arrived slightly early which was not a problem for John who checked us in promptly and gave us some information. He was extremely knowledgeable about Bude and he made a couple of nice recommendations. The room was cute and the bathroom was decently equipped. The room was on the small side but wasn't a major problem. The bathroom and shower were small and the shower pressure was quite poor. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was fine but nothing special. Overall, the stay was decent and the service very good. We would recommend and would stay again.
