At the beginning of August, I stayed for 3 nights at Glencree House with my mother and although I thought it a bit far from the train station, we were very pleased to receive such a nice greeting from Andrew and an excellent accomodation. We had the double room with ensuite on the top floor not facing the sea which we didn't mind at all as we really wanted a good night's sleep and not the noise from the street.
The breakfast is really as good as everybody else says. Every day I tried a different one and I can't really decide which was the best. They were all delicious. Andrew was very helpful to give tips what to do in the area. Like seeing St Michael's Mount or go on the Explorer bus. The next bus stop is just round the corner and from there the bus takes you all around West Cornwall. Very good!
The city centre is just 5min away if you short cut up the hill and through the park. We had a wonderful stay at Glencree House and do recommend it!
All the best to you and your family, Andrew!
