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.

Truly wonderful. The most beautiful place to stay, in the perfect location with the most welcoming hosts. Often with guest houses, if you return time after time, you can see things getting tired. Absolutely not the case...it always looks as fresh as the first time. So well loved and cared for. We absolutely love Surf Haven. Thank you Caroline and Peter for so many fantastic memories xx

We have just got back from a lovely few days in Bude. Once again we stayed at Surf Haven. It was excellent as always. Wonderful breakfasts, spotlessly clean and everything has been thought of to make visitors' stays as good as possible. The small fridge in the room is silent - and is great for milk and wine! We're looking forward to our return visit already!

This was my third or was it my fourth visit? Every time I visit Bude I always return to this B & B - it's a home from home. Caroline and Peter are the most impeccable hosts and Caroline's Full Cornish is to die for! I'll definitely be back.

6 of us (3 couples) stayed for 2 nights on the coastal path. Caroline and Peter run a first class operation. Everything was fab and of the highest quality. Rooms are lovely, linen great and breakfast yummy. 1st time any of us had sampled hogs pudding and hope it won’t be the last. Highly recommended

Wonderful location, close to beach and overlooking the golf course. We have stayed with Caroline and Peter many times now and keep returning - not just because of the brilliant location, but because of the wonderful welcome and service we get every time. Surf Haven is always clean and well presented. We stayed in room 4 - very spacious. Thank you both again for a lovely stay.

From the moment Caroline opened the front door with her beaming smile, I knew we’d be made very welcome at Surf Haven. I wasn’t wrong; she and Peter simply can’t do enough for you and want you to enjoy your stay in every way possible. Our room was spacious and well equipped, with little touches like sweets and flapjacks that are replenished daily. There are tea and coffee making facilities and herbal or fruit teas also available. The room has a small fridge, flat screen tv, plenty of drawers and hanging space, powerful hairdryer, an amazingly comfortable super king size bed, bathrobes, slippers, a shower room with a good shower - we wanted for nothing; Caroline even did some ironing for us! The choice of breakfasts was amazingly good - and cooked to perfection. Especially important to me as a coeliac, was Caroline’s understanding of the importance of a gluten free diet; she cooked a gluten free breakfast each day for me and it really was delicious - and while Caroline is cooking, Peter is the perfect host in the dining room. Caroline and Peter are very knowledgeable about the area - and a wider area of Devon and Cornwall, and she even did some internet research and found us a local karaoke night - one which we’d missed in our own searches. I really can’t praise this place, or our hosts, enough it was a lovely stay that went far too quick. This is one place where you feel you arrive as strangers and leave as friends.
