“A warm welcome”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Colleages had booked us into the Elba and we couldn't have been more pleased. We were met by a warm welcome and plenty of information. Our en-suite room was delightful, clean and smart with little added extras to make us feel at home. Breakfast was second to none, so much choice and nothing was too much trouble. We only stayed for the one night but would have happily stayed longer. If we are back in Cornwall at any time, this would certainly be our first choice to stay. Thanks Chris & Ken - as they say 'you're worth it'!!

What a lovely review Lesley, it is very much appreciated. When doing the refurbishment we tried to consider everything a prospective guest may wish for. I'm sure your review will be helpful to anyone considering a stay at Elba.
We would have been delighted if you could have stayed longer however we know that your circumstances didn't allow. We certainly hope you may be able to return at some point in the future.
Thank you for posting the review and so promptly. Very best wishes to you both.

We were given a lovely warm welcome by Chris and Ken. Our bedroom gave us a magnificent view towards Padstow and the River Camel estuary and was extremely comfortable and well appointed. There is a spacious breakfast room overlooking the garden, and breakfast is beautifully cooked and presented, a real treat. Plenty of local information is provided, and the house is well located for exploring the rest of the county, particularly handy for travelling either side of the estuary. We were extremely well looked after, and appreciate the considerable thought put into the service offered. We look forward to another stay, and will recommend Elba to our friends.

Hi Angela and David. Thank you very much for your kind review of Elba, we are really glad you were able to take advantage of our Spring special offer. You told us you were comfortable with us which helped you to fully relax away from your busy lives. We were so pleased you didn't let the weather deter you from getting out and about and were able to have that long walk. Listening to the weather forecast it is supposed to compare favourably with last summer. We are pleased to hear you are considering a return visit and we look forward to welcoming you into our home again.

Thank you once again for taking the time to post a review on our behalf. Regards Chris and Ken

My best friend and myself had planned a girls night away. Elba had been recommend and what a treat. We arrived late afternoon and where both more than delighted with the very warm and home from home welcoming by the most enthusiastic hosts Chris and Ken. The cleanliness of the twin room we had was 5* there was everything you could ever possibly want, and as for the beds and linen it could only be described as top notch. Well breakfast had only one fault! I just could not finish it, fresh fruit on arrival followed by a selection of cereals and juices. The fry breakfast was outstanding.
The whole experience was amazing and if they will has us we will return as soon as can. Great thanks to Chris and Ken such fabulous hosts and friends.

Room Tip: Any they are all amazingly presented.

Many thanks for finding the time to post a review about Elba B&B, when you have such a busy life. We're glad you had a good break and were comfortable in the Edmonton twin room which was new for this year. Our aim is to create a homely environment for guests as a hotel can be impersonal. Sometimes our breakfasts can be filling due to the quality of our produce which is rich and satisfying. On a positive note - you don't need much during the day, perhaps a very light snack.
You are certainly welcome to return for a further visit, you have our contact details to check availability. Very best wishes to you both. Regards Chris and Ken.

After having a few b&bs to choose from we are so pleased we chose Elba. We could not have received more friendly and welcoming service from Ken and Chris. The room (the Estuary) was so clean, cosy and comfortable that we did not want to leave. A really homey feel to a contemporary and up to date room. Breakfast was delicious AND local-perfect combination! Without a doubt we will be staying here again. Thanks to Chris and Ken for making our visit to my sister's neck of the woods so very luxurious and comfy! Lee & Lindsey

Hi Lee and Lindsey - what an unexpected surprise to receive your appreciative review of Elba B&B so soon. Thank you very much for your comments [we hope the title of the breakfast picture should read 'scrummy' :-) ] We are pleased you chose to stay with us, we thought of you on Sunday and hoped you succeeded in your spur of the moment 10k run, you certainly had lovely weather, possibly too warm. We are glad you enjoyed your visit to Cornwall and look forward to welcoming you again. Regards Chris and Ken.

Just returned home after a very pleasant three day stay at Elba with Ken ans Chris ,we picked this place after seeing such good reports from tripadvisor and we were not disappointed in any way, all comments were spot on..the most friendly people we have met for a long while .the place was spotlessly clean with every thing you would need in your spacious room (internet reception was so good which was another bonus. We will certainly hope to stay there again and would recommend this to all our friends and thanks again Chris and Ken for making this a very enjoyable stay.

Hi Pat and Terry, thank you for your review of Elba. We are glad you felt comfortable in the Garden room and were able to stay in touch with friends and family through the internet connection. We are aiming to refurbish that guest room this winter so you will notice the difference if you are able to visit again in the future. Best wishes to you both. Chris and Ken

We stayed for 4 nights and we wish it could of been for longer, Chris @ Ken were so welcoming, nothing was to much trouble for them. The rooms were a delight. absolutely perfect with a lovely comfy bed and beautiful bathroom. The breakfasts were lovely and plentiful and all the bread and preserves were homemade, just delicious.What with the views over Padstow and surrounding countryside this was just a perfect 4 night break and we are already looking forward to going again.
Chris and Ian.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely.The Edmonton room is twin. the other rooms are doubles

Just had a long weekend with Ken & Chris in their lovely B&B and what a weekend.
We stayed in their Estuary room which was finished to perfection...comfy bed, lovely bathroom and wonderful views down to Padstow & Rock.
Breakfast was just as lovely with local produce and homemade delights.
We'll be visiting again in the future.

Hi Vicki - thanks for your review of Elba B&B. We were so pleased you made the journey down to Cornwall to stay with us for a few days/nights. You travelled to the furthest point of Land's End, which you did quite easily, and took some smashing pictures of views, rocks, sea and more . Thank you for your seal of approval of our rooms and location, we hope it won't be too long before we see you down this way again to carry on exploring :-)
