We stayed here for 5 nights in the Games room.
The owners are very friendly, not always about when needed by arriving and present guest's but that's down to their own personnel reasons, if you do need anything and the owners are about they will try and accommodate your needs.
The value is good for this area and location is excellent, with some nice beaches and Newquay town centre within walking distance.
Parking is a little tight during busy periods and you could get blocked in, if other guests don't park efficiently.
The room itself was spacious, cleanish but not spotless with small hairs in the shower tray and on the bathroom wall tiles, there was also hairs and small bits on the bedding, the mattresses were clean a little soft and the pillows were flat, just don't look under the beds as there was a half eaten biscuit under the bunk beds and a child's beaker and hair grips under the double bed.
When we entered the room it didn't smell great and was a little fusty so we bought some glade air fresheners which made a big difference.
In the room you get tea and coffee making facilities and a small fridge which was handy although the coffee cups had what looked like butter or grease on the outside of them you also get a freeview tv, dvd player and a selection of games to play, there's also a full size pool table which costs 50p to play (should of been free in a themed room).
This room is in the annex and has another guest room adjacent to it and no room above which cuts down on the noise you also get your own entrance.
The rooms not all that private however, with the decking/smoking area straight outside of the 2 double windows, and if people are sat drinking on the decked area till late it could interrupt your sleep, there are nets up and curtains that stand 4 inch away from the window and just about cover the window.
When we stayed it was a hot week so the room got quite warm during the day, the windows weren't top opening just side opening, so we couldn't have the windows open because the chickens and ducks walk on the decking and the decking is window level.
The main disadvantage to this room is that it wasn't child friendly were lighting is concerned, you have a main light switch when you enter the room but no bedside lights and the bathroom light switch is 5ft up.
At breakfast you get a choice of times, either 8:30 or 9:30 and there's a selection of cereals and fruit, toast, and or a cooked breakfast with was nice but average.
So to summarise, its a nice average b&b, which is animal friendly, the owner has a menagerie of animals including, a little puppy, fish, guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens, ducks and a rooster.
Parking is available, there's no living room for guests to sit in and chat together so your restricted to staying in your room or sitting outside, the showers hot with good pressure, the location is good and so is the value, the owners are also friendly but sadly not available all the time...
The foods ok and to say its on a main road, the traffic noise is low.
