We just spent 3 nights with John Lewis at his lovely B&B in Tintagel. The property is old and quirky and filled with John's little touches and nick-naks that help to make it unique and welcoming. John is a great Host and enjoys lots of banter with the guests. We were in the Rose Room with its balcony and distant views of the sea. The room is comfortable and quite spacious. The over-bath shower is a bit disappointing because of the lack of water pressure but with the hot tank in a cupboard in the bedroom this is unavoidable I suspect unless a pump is fitted.
Breakfast was an absolute feast for the eyes and stomach. The buffet of fresh fruit, yoghurts and cereals would satisfy anyone wanting a continental breakfast but for those of us brave enough to accept the 'Full English' you were presented with a massive traditional breakfast. Guests staying a second night could sometimes be heard to ask for a Half English! which still proved very satisfying.
It is no surprise that John fills his 4 rooms virtually every night so if you want to stay in Tintagel in what we believe is the best, then make sure you book well ahead of time.
Well done John - you are doing just about everything right and the award of a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for the second year running is well deserved.More
