“Would stay again”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

This is an old, very old, building with some character. Don't expect an old Abbey to be like the Holiday Inn. It is very quiet and comfortable. The owners were very accommodating and the breakfast was excellent. I've paid much more for worse. It's convenient just off the A30 too. Recommended

Had two double rooms for the night whilst walking the Saint's Way. Carole was most attentive and we could not fault the breakfast in the morning. Great location and only a five minute walk from the Lanivet Inn where they will Panda to your every taste.

Good value B & B. Would go back.

We stayed one night whilst on a quick trip to the area.
The hosts were friendly and welcoming and recommended a great spot for dinner.
The room was very clean, although the dark decor in the bathroom was a little off putting.
Similarly the furnishings in the bedroom were representative of an old building - quite in keeping, but a little too fussy and too much for us. We did however like the four poster bed which was big and very comfortable.
Shower in bath was terrific and the room amenities quite ample. Lighting over the sitting area could be a bit better for reading.
A pleasant stay in pleasant surroundings with a more than adequate breakfast.

Called in here on strength of reviews but instead of the expected warm welcome we had to ring a bell 3 times before a very rude man appeared. in response to being asked whether we could have some cream teas he just said 'no' and that was it! No explanation of any sort. Can't recommend I'm afraid.

Found St Benets Abbey on Trip Advisor when looking for a 1 night stay in a guest house in Central Cornwall. The previous reveiws read really well so decided to book it
and was not disappointed. Don't be put off by the Previous history of the building or the look of the place when you arrive as its quirky and unique !
The whole experience was excellent. The room, Breakfast and staff were all deserving of 5 stars and i would recommend it to anyone and will use it again myself.

Very comfortable, convenient location if you are touring Cornwall. Staff and service superb, breakfast outstanding, couldn't ask for a better breakfast. The rooms were comfortable and well supplied, the room amenities ( cookies, coffee hot chocolates etc.)great. The shower and wash basin had strong water pressure, never ran out of hot water. The parking lot is large and close to the entrance. The hotel is close to the town yet far enough to be very quiet and peaceful.
We really enjoyed our stay, the staff really worked hard, made us feel like old friends, so helpful and accommodating. First time for us in this area of the UK, never knew what to expect, I guess we were lucky.

Room Tip: I would think from our experience, all the rooms would be good choices. We had one double and one wi...
