Stayed at this b & b for 3 nights in room 9. The location is very good with easy access to the harbour and local restaurants/shops etc. The venue itself is kept to a high standard and nicely decorated and furnished throughout. Our room was a little on the compact size and the bathroom functional but again small. Being at the front of the house we had a view of Tor park which was not unpleasant, but due to the main road could be a little noisy on occasions. Other rooms we understand are bigger, but due to the popularity of the venue need to be booked well in advance, both the room and public areas are kept very clean.
Breakfast is excellent, the full English being well cooked and presented. The owners are friendly and pleasant. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this b & b.
Out and about a cream tea at the 'tea shoppe' Cockington villige is a must, good value compared with others around and a very 'English' atmosphere. We also had a excellent evening meal at the Marina restaurant with superb view of the harbour.
