5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

We just spent one night at Castle Hill on a walking holiday along the South West Coast Path. The location couldn't have been more convenient at the top of the funicular railway, although an extra draw would have been a sea view - I am not sure if the outlook from other bedrooms would have given this. However the big plus at Castle Hill for me was the hospitality. Nothing is too much trouble for the charming owners and the friendly welcome is a wonderful advertisement for the area. Their thorough knowledge of the surroundings helped us prepare for the next section of our walk. We were pleased to take their recommendations for an evening meal at Lily May's across the road which was excellent. The room was spotless and a good size. If you pushed me to find a fault the only thing I could say is the lighting was a trifle dim, but that's being really fussy. The comfy beds gave a good night's sleep and the road outside was silent. Breakfast was a great set-up for the day, with home baked bread and muffins, juicy bacon and top quality sausages. Couldn't recommend this highly enough.

Spent a weekend at Castle Hill with friends at the end of March. Alastair and Emma do an excellent job - from the welcoming tea and cake on arrival, the well stocked honesty bar, the very good quality and locally sourced breakfasts, right through to making sure they both get to say goodbye to all guests. The rooms are clean and spacious - some with their own lounge area and good suggestions on where to eat and walk are offered. A really enjoyable stay which we plan to repeat next year.

We really enjoyed a long weekend at Castle Hill. B & B is really good and we would highly recommend it. Hospitality by Emma and Alistair was excellent and they both made us feel very welcome. Cleanliness, facilities and breakfast get a gold star from us. Thank you Emma and Alistair.

Alistair and Emma run a perfect guest house. Nothing is too much trouble, their local knowledge is second to none and the atmosphere, food and rooms are nothing short of superb. We will definitely use this guest house again and recommend it to any of our friends who wish to stay in the area. This is the standard to which all guest houses should aspire.

Just returned from an easter weekend break at Castle Hill,warmly greeted by Alistair & Emma with coffee and biscuits. The rooms are perfect Emma insisted in taking our bags to our room, whilst we enjoyed our most welcomed coffee & biscuits.
Breakfast was delicious served with emma's home made cakes. Alistair's knowledge of the local area was invaluable and really made our weekend a special one. I cannot recommend Castle Hill enough, Alistair and Emma really go that extra mile to make your stay a memorable one and we will both definitely be returning in the near future, thank you, both so much for making our easter weekend so special !!

Just returned from our second visit to Castle Hill, we were again greeted by Emma & Alistair with coffee and biscuits. The rooms are immaculate the breakfast a real treat nothing is too much trouble for this brilliant couple. Alistair even came out when i called him to free a trapped wild goat we found whilst out walking. My wife recommends Emma's spa treatments, her new venture, which we are sure will be as successful. Castle Hill is just like home from home or staying with friends, every minute of the five and a half hour journey is worth it !!!! our third visit is already booked.
