“Friendliest B & B in Cornwall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2010

My husband and I have been going to this B & B for about 15 years and love it the way it is!! It may not be a bijou boutique guest house, but it is the most homely, comfy, warm, clean and welcoming place we have stayed in. The owners, now considered friends, cook a wonderful English breakfast amongst other things on their varied menu. Endless racks of toast and copious amounts of fresh coffee/tea/juice will set you up for the day.
Room 1 (our favourite) has an amazing view of the sea and the estuary and the town lit up at night - you wont want to shut the curtains!!
The B & B is close to the coastal path and we have often walked to Polperro.
If you want star rated accomodation, stay in a hotel. If you want warm and homely surroundings with warm and genuine proprietors - stay at Marwinthy!!

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2008

The Guest house is set on the hillside over looking Looe with lovely sea views from the rooms.The owners were very friendly and the breakfast was reasonable.
That's all i can say on a positive note.On arrival we were shown our room. Although nice and warm and looked to be recently painted, it is in need of some updating particularly the very small on-suite.
When i pulled back the sheets the bed looked like it had already been slept in as it was covered in what i assumed was pubic hair left by the previous people. When i asked the landlady about it she said "not to worry it was just her dog sleeping there" I was gob-smacked.
I nice position and view, but needs updating and beware of the dog in your bed.
