“Idyllic Guesthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Amazing hosts, gorgeous room, beautiful setting and yummy breakfasts. Honestly this is the best place I've ever stayed.
Their attention to detail in our room (which was spotless & stylish) made the entire experience over the weekend totally relaxing. It was a quiet and welcoming retreat - and a perfect place for us to stay to explore Cornwall during the day. 2 nights wasn't enough and I would love to come back again. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Pick a room which overlooks the river - gorgeous

Stayed in Room 5 for 2 nights. Would have loved to stay longer. The owners were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. Amazingly comfy bed, large spacious room with a great view. Spotlessly clean and no expense spared on the decor and finish throughout the property. A stunning building. Breakfast was delicious, definitely worth trying the eggs Royale. We will definitely be back.

I have spent a weekend with my girlfriend in the Old Vicarage. It is a beautiful guesthouse, our had a beautiful view over the river. The service was absolutely perfect. Marilyn and her partner made us feel welcome from the very first minute, and you can feel when people are in the hospitality businesses because they like to be hospitable. The breakfast was great as well, offering a wide choice of freshly cooked BF.

I would definitely come back again and would strongly recommend this place to anyone, looking for a beautiful quite spot, which serves asa hub for exploring Cornwall.

What a brilliant b&b agree with all the other reviews. Only 1.5 miles outside of Truro, high quality rooms, very welcomed and great food. Better than a lot of hotels I have stayed in and the views are just great.

I have wanted to stay at the Old Vicarage for a while now and it was well worth the wait. It is not just the wonderful house but also the stunning location. The property has been substantially refurbished/rebuilt to a very high standard; it is so much more than you standard B & B! The owners make you feel very welcome and the breakfast is delicious. We really would have been more than happy to just sit and look out of our bedroom window all day! We stayed in room 4 and the only request/suggestion I would make is that a chest of drawers or a dressing table could be put in the room as there is nowhere to sit with a mirror, also a tiny table in the window would be nice to rest a cup of tea on while you are relaxing and watching the wildlife. We hope to return soon.

A wonderfully run establishment with great staff. It is clean and the beds are so comfy, we really recommend this place for a nice chilled out stay with great walks and a wonderful shopping town nearby. We will definately be coming back.

Another business trip brought me to Truro. So glad I booked with Marilyn at the Old Vicarage. She and her husband have unstintingly restored this wonderful building and the results are jaw dropping. I recommend unhesitatingly that you stay there whether requiring peace and tranquility or as much time as you need shopping in Truro (or even surveying battered old farm buildings being restored to full use). You will be royally treated and sent on your way rejoicing. 5 star luxury.
