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.

We have just arrived back from Kings Acre North Cornwall.

The website introduction states that it is a B&B with a little difference, but let me tell you, it is very different and first class.

We booked the indulgence package - to celebrate our anniversary - we were treated extremely well. The package included a bottle of Champaign on arrival, quality chocolates and the bed decorated with petals.

We also had complementary slippers and bathrobes. On arrival we were greeted outside as it was quite dark after a 5 1/2 hour drive.

The check-in process was completed over freshly brewed coffee and scones baked on the premises with jam and cream.Delicious! Note was also made of the type of music we liked.

The themed room was fantastic - the Mackintosh - well thought out and made to make you feel comfortable - a match for any 4* or perhaps even 5* hotel. The bed is sumptuous and just a delight to be in with the tempura mattress.

Breakfast - talk about eating like a king... breakfast was served to music of a genre discussed during the check-in process and the food presentation and quality were surprisingly good and so filling. Caution - if you are going for the Full English Breakfast, make sure your waist band is quite loose.

This B&B also has a fitness room with sauna and hot tub which you can book for about 2 hours a day, for us if was a fantastic way to wind down at the end of the day.

The package also included sandwiches on one of the days… once again they were well presented on a platter with a large salad and 2 rounds of sandwiches made with a mixture of thick sliced bread which looked home made but I’m not sure if they were…. I didn’t ask.

Although the time of year that we visited the area did not produce the best weather, the facilities more than made up for the weather, which was rather wet and windy but was not particularly cold during the day. The B&B come hotel is located in Camelford North Cornwall and is not far from Tintangel - King Arthur country. It also did not take long to get to Rock – the other side of the estuary from Padstow.

All in all, the 3 night package was wonderful, the hospitality and accommodation and food were first rate and worth experiencing more than once.

Graham and Lynn are marvelous hosts. Accommodation more than expected. I stayed several times when they first opened up as a b&b they have upgraded every room and facilities since then. A MUST visit when in area. There's plenty to do and see all around.

After reading the reviews of Kings Acre on TripAdvisor, this gem of a B&B does not disappoint amd rightly deserves its five star ratings. My partner and I stayed there for three nights in September in the Mackintosh room which can only be described as sumptuous. This bijoux B&B houses only three guest rooms, but you do get a dedicated parking space and this is necessary given its location. The rooms are in a separate building away from the main heart of the house where the breakfast room/small bar etc is located so very private.

The friendly service from Lynda is impeccable, greeting you with a lovely cup of tea on arrival. You don’t need to do much homework on where to go in North Cornwall as there are various books and maps on loan in their cosy foyer. Breakfast is beautifully cooked and there is plenty of it; it certainly sets you up for the day. Outside your bedroom, there is a shared area with kettle for tea/coffee/fruit/chocolate biscuits and an hour before breakfast freshly brewed coffee is laid on. All this, together with use of bathrobes and complimentary toiletries from a local herbery makes for a very comfortable stay.

We only made one evening trip into Camelford and even though it has a tourist information centre, it wasn’t enough to tempt us to see it in the daylight. There are plenty of things to see and do however, including some stunning National Trust properties.

I booked a two night stay here for my boyfriends birthday and had a smashing time!! Fresh coffee with warm scones with fresh cream and jam upon arrival set the scene for our fantastic stay!!

Kings Acre is a good base to explore all the surrounding towns, the rooms are beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean with a huuuuge walk in shower and a very comfy bed!! The breakfast is fantastic... a fab start to the day!!

Recommend an evening with Champers (!) in the hot tub and sauna - lovely jubbly!!

Would certainly recommend to all!

Kings Acre really lived up to our (high) expectations. The accommodation is of a really high standard - we stayed in the Mackintosh room, which is huge and really tastefully decorated. Everything is of the highest quality - from the Tempur mattress, to the locally made toiletries, to the bottled water, tea and coffee and fresh fruit available from right outside your room, 24 hours a day - and your every need has been anticipated.
There's also a leisure suite available for B&B guests, which is wonderful - a fantastic hot tub and sauna plus exercise equipment, with towels and water provided.
Sadly, the rain prevented us from making the most of it, but the house is set in gorgeous gardens.
Breakfast presents a great choice, and is enormous - prepare to have no need to eat until dinnertime!
The owners, Lynda and Graham are helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area.
The only real downsides about our stay were:
a) the lack of a bath - the wetroom is enormous and has a fabulous shower, but we missed having somewhere to soak on a gloomy August day!
b) location - while we were well placed to get about in the day (Padstow is about 25 minutes' drive, Port Isaac 15 minutes' drive and Newquay about 40 minutes' drive), things were a little more difficult in the evening. The nearest town is Camelford, which is a strange little place with a limited selection of places to eat. We had brilliant meals in Boscastle and Tintagel, (the next nearest towns) but be warned that if you don't have a designated driver, you're facing a taxi ride costing £20 for the round trip to get to either.

We were astounded by this wonderful b&b as soon as we arrived. My husband and i were attending a wedding in Camelford itself and couldn't have asked for a more welcoming and pretty place to stay. Our room, the Waterfront room, was amazingly furnished and the wetroom was just a pure luxury. The breakfast was lovely and the owners really friendly and pleasant. We just wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you Kings Acre.

We've just returned from a three night stay at King's Acre and felt the best way to extend our thanks for a fantastic break was through a great review. Perfectly tranquil and every need catered for (plus a few I didn't know I had, like the superb sausages at breakfast!). King's Acre is a welcoming bolt hole where nothing is too much trouble, from a plate of sandwiches in the evening, to great local information or a relaxing jacuzzi. This is an idyllic location with one of the best beds I've ever slept in, and we would highly recommend it.

My parents have just returned from the Kings Acre B&B. This was a 60th present to my father and I feel like I excelled myself - almost by accident!

They could not praise this place enough. Beautiful rooms, tastefully decorated, perfectly situated within the countryside.

Lynda and Graham could not have been any more helpful, providing information on places to visit, eat and advice on how to spend their days during their first trip to Cornwall.

The breakfast was A1, cooked with love and to perfection!

The hot tub was available to them, cream tea was served to them, all in all the perfect trip.

They gave my parents a trip to remember, 'perfect' in every way!

We stayed 2 nights (28th and 29th May 2008) in the Mackintosh room, which is really terrific. The bed is huge and superbly comfortable with enough pillows to start your own hotel and a mattress that just about reads your mind!

The décor appealed to us – we had recently revamped our own wet room with Charles Rennie Mackintosh design tiles and a spare, uncluttered look and felt immediately at home here. The whole concept here at Kings Acre seemed very thoughtfully integrated and visually satisfying. The vaulted ceiling with clever lighting, numerous windows (with blinds) and ample proportions give the bedroom a very light and spacious feel that inspires relaxation – helped by the immensely deep carpet, chesterfield and large flatscreen TV.

We were greeted warmly by Lynda after a dreadful journey (remember the flooding?) but were soon able to wind down with a clotted cream tea (home-baked scones by Graham, I believe) followed by unpacking, then a sybaritic session in the spa building. That was a great treat. There is a self-contained mini-gym, complete with shower, sauna and one of the best Jacuzzi pools we have ever encountered – which included a submerged recliner section which massaged you from top to toe – bliss!

And then there is breakfast: try not to eat the night before – and be wary of planning a pub lunch after it! Graham excelled himself with this first meal of the day and the surroundings are delightful – individual tables, comfortably spaced – ours was in the bay window with views towards the coast, and very tasteful background music (discussed with guests to optimise the ambience). The ingredients were of the highest quality and the portions were generous to say the least (smoked salmon and scrambled eggs features in the offerings). On the second morning, my wife opted for the continental breakfast to avoid over-facing herself – so was surprised to be served with two substantial slices of beautiful ham and four different cheeses weighing in at about 3 ounces each! Just go there and be spoilt.

Over the bank holiday weekend we booked ourselves into Kings Acre Waterfront Room. We booked the special 2 night package where we recieved tea and scones on arrival.

Lynda, the owner, was great in providing us useful information on the local area.

This B&B is absolutely unique and amazing. The room was well decorated and was spotless aswell as faultless.

We had access to our own hot tub and sauna room!

We really felt we were on out honey moon!!!
Breakfast was amazing.

Lynda really made us feel welcomed and we would recommend this place highly to anyone else that wants that special break away.

This was a unique 2 nights stay!
