“Excellent Hospitality”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

We regularly spend time in Cornwall staying with family, but had to find a B&B this time due to family houses being full for a big event. Having stayed at Salem House once, we'll probably ignore free family accommodation in the future to stay with Lisa again! Although there is only one room, it is of a high standard with a comfy bed, wifi, satellite TV and good bathroom. The breakfast was outstanding, which is rare for vegetarians to experience and kept us going for most of the day. Loaction is good for exploring, just outside Truro and it was very quiet at night. Lisa is a welcoming host and we'd recommend that she sorts out a few more rooms for use as B&B as she has an excellent business which provides great vaue for money.

Stayed a night after a days house hunting down from London. 5 minute drive out of Truro in the middle of hills, super quiet. There's only one room which is in it's own part of the house, nice and big, ensuite bathroom/wetroom. Good powerful shower, sky TV, great free wifi lots of cupboard/drawer space. Had vodafone and o2 reception outsideLisa the owner is awesome, and cooks a legendary breakfast in your own private dining room. HIGHLY recommended - if there's a room free and you're visiting the area book it straight away, might escape for a night from the boss even when we live there :p

My girlfriend booked a romantic weekend away for my birthday at Salem House.
The weekend was fantastic we were greeted with fresh cooked scones on arrival! The cornish breakfast was amazing and we never left a bean on the plate!
The room is lovely and cosy with a big telly with sky movies!
The location was great for exploring some of the beautiful sites cornwall has.
Big thank you for a lovely warm welcoming weekend Lisa from me and the missus!
Happy Holidays
:-)

We stayed at Salem House for a week to have a well-earned break and also to be near to family who needed our help for several days. The welcome Lisa gives her guests is second to none...to be met with a Cornish cream tea on arrival was a totally unexpected delight. Lisa even found Early Grey tea for me, and changed other things to make sure everything was perfect. We had some busy days and one or two where we just needed to stay in to recuperate - the room and facilities were so comfortable we felt as relaxed as if we were 'at home' on holiday! The Cornish breakfast Lisa serves is scrumptious, and kept us going all day! We will be back!

I can't rate this B & B highly enough and would not hesitate to recommend. A very warm welcome - beautiful, spacious, spotlessly clean accommodation and a fantastic breakfast. Great location for Truro and extremely peaceful. We look forward to going back again.

I stayed at Salem House recently whilst working in the area. Lisa came out to meet me on a cold rainy January night and was the perfect hostess plying me with a home made Cornish tea and amazing breakfasts. The room is utterly beautiful, furnished with gorgeous furniture and curtains. Lisa's attention to detail is remarkable. There was even a hot water bottle for the bed. The bathroom is spacious and spotlessly clean. I can't fault my stay in any way. It really was brilliant and I thoroughly recommend you stay there as long as it's not when I want to go.
