“Very Clean and Friendly”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

My wife and I have just returned from spending 2 nights at Shoreline, and apart from the breakfast being a tad early (8 - 8.45am) it was excellent. The aforementioned breakfast is very very good, there's a varied choice so something for everyone, after breakfast on our first morning we went and sat out on the decking area at the front and the lady who served us breakfast came out and asked us if we would like tea or coffee out there, we said coffee would be very nice and she brought us out a tray with a large cafetiere of coffee, two cups/saucers and milk and sugar, now thats what I call service. Our room was the Jasmine room which is their budget room and so is one of their smaller rooms, but it had everything we needed, clean and well stocked with tea/coffee making facilities, we did have a slight problem filling the kettle as we couldn't get it under the tap so we filled it by undoing the shower head from it's hose and filling it that way. All in all it was a very enjoyable stay and Liv the proprietor is lovely, very friendly and helpful and if we return to Cornwall at some point we will book the Shoreline Guest House.

We loved Shoreline. It's simple and basic. You get what you expect. The room was very comfy - we had a lovely sea view. Slept well, ate well, very friendly staff - Liv was extremely helpful.
We stayed for four nights and have no complaints at all. The location is perfect for exploring the area.

I stayed in a single room (Poppy) at the back of the property (so no view) and was pleased with the size of the bed (bigger than average single bed/small double). The room was clean and had tv, coffee/tea facilities, hairdryer and a comfy seat to rest in. The bathroom was small but just big enough and towels, shampoo and shower gel provided.
Breakfast is served between 8am-8:45am and was very tasty. There is a fantastic offer of cooked, continental, cereals and fruit. There is a s much toast as you can eat and the scrambled egg on an English muffin with bacon is very good indeed. Service at breakfast is prompt and friendly and the only time I met a member of staff/owner - which is a little odd if you need something during the day as there is nobody to ask, but phone details are left. When I arrived in the afternoon there was nobody to show me to my room but email instructions were given to this affect and the room was easy to locate.

Room Tip: Front rooms are bigger and have a sea view.

We came for a four night stay at Shoreline Guest House. We stayed in the Orchard room which had lovely views of the ocean. The room was clean, bright, there were even fresh flowers in the room. The bed was very comfortable which is important if you are staying for a number of nights - for the first time ever, I didn't have to say 'I can't wait to get back in my own bed'!. From the start of booking Liv couldn't have been more helpful with local knowledge, places to eat and generally getting around, making a point of coming in to the breakfast room each morning to see if all was ok with the guests and check if they needed any info for their day. This is a lovely place to stay to explore the surrounding area.

Arrived on the overnight Riviera Sleeper from Paddington to be greeted by the lovely Liv who welcomed me with a cup of tea and a welcoming smile. My single room was spotlessly clean, very comfortable with a spectacular sea view. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, served in a bright and cheerful breakfast room. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shoreline to anyone. Can't wait to return. Thanks for such a relaxing stay!

Me and my friend spend three nights in this B&B, first night we spend in small room with no view on the sea, but next day, owner laydy offered us to move to bigger room,didn't have to pay extra for this treat:), breakfast were delicious. I would recomended this to B&B to anyone who want to have good quality but not to pricey.

A very nice b&b. I was in the room with see view and at morning, during the sunrise, the ocean gives a feeling of load and serenity at the same time. The room was very clean, the bathroom was with every confort. The mistress has been friendly. It's a place for who search a relaxing trip with a loved one.
