Symply Padstow
Ranked #15 of 55 Padstow B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 August 2013

My wife and I spent 4 nights in August. The room we had had an excellent view of the Camel Estuary and Rock beyond. The room was very spacious and extremely comfortable with an extra large bed.The B&B is located close to the harbour and car parking available in the road outside. All in all we experienced a very relaxing break in a lovely B&B in a lovely area of Cornwall.

We stayed for 3 nights in July, our second visit. This is an excellent B&B and I find it hard to believe there are apparently 20 better ones in Padstow. The location is perfect, being close enough to walk easily into Padstow, but with parking available on the road outside. There are lovely views from the bedrooms over the estuary, probably even better from the top room. The rooms are very clean and the fridge is really useful. Breakfast is great, with a nice fruit selection to start and plenty of choice.
There is lots to do in and around Padstow. We walked both sides of the estuary, cycled the Camel Trail and enjoyed the beaches. At night there are plenty of good restaurants - try Margots.

We spent a fabulous 2 nights in the Rock view room over the August bank holiday weekend. The views from the room were fantastic and the room itself was spotless, with some lovely personal touches and a very comfy bed, we both left feeling utterly rested. My only small bug bear would be the lack of hanging space/wardrobe.
Its in an ideal location for exploring Padstow and further afield. David and Tina both so friendly and helpful; good recommendations for walks, and the breakfast was immense - cooked to perfection. We will definately be back, to Symply Padstow and Rick Steins Seafood restaurant!

Thank you for your lovely comments. I am sorry you didn't feel there was enough hanging space, there was a bigger wardrobe in the main bedroom but it hampered the view a bit from the bed. As our guests like to lie in bed and enjoy the fabulous view across the water to Rock we decided to move the wadrobe and get a slightly smaller one and place it where the ceiling is a bit lower so it had to be smaller. As the average stay is about 3 days the smaller wardrobe has always seemed to be spacious enough.

My husband and I have just had a three night stay at Simply Padstow, we were celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary. We stayed in the Porthilly View room, the blinds stayed open 24/7 and the view we woke up to each morning was amazing. The room was light and pleasant, with some lovely touches, i.e. Mary's Shed toiletries, robes and fresh flowers etc and the fridge was very useful, stocked daily with fresh milk, water and elderflower press. The cookies went down well with a coffee/ hot chocolate in the evening. The surrounding area is lovely, we went for a walk before breakfast one morning, just a five minute stroll and you are on the estuary. Once on the cycle/ walking path, you can just keep walking and it takes you into the harbour, we carried on to Harbour Cove. We then decided to turn back because our delicious cooked breakfast awaited us. My husband requested a fish breakfast for the last morning, he was presented with mackerel fillets which were freshly caught by the owner.They were cooked to perfection. The staff were very welcoming and informative. We forgot to thank Tina and David for the card and chocolates, so take this as a personal thank you from us. All in all a great place to stay and enjoy Padstow.

Room Tip: There is not much difference in the rooms, they all have an estuary view.

My wife and I stayed in the Camel View room at Simply Padstow in July this year. We were in town to celebrate my beloved's 40th birthday and needed somewhere to stay for the first night before moving on to Rick Steins St Edmunds House. We were very happy with our choice of B&B. Simply Padstow is exactly how it's advertised, clean, stylish, traditional and with fantastic views. It totally typifies the area and even when you are relaxing on your four poster you feel like you are in Padstow.

All the little touches were very welcome (bath robes) and breakfast the following morning was excellent as were the owners. We arrived much earlier than expected but were allowed to check in straight away. All in all it helped make our two night break in Padstow very memorable and we will return at some point in the future.

Our first visit to Symply Padstow, and it was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and on finding out it was mine and my partners birthdays we had a card and chocs, very thoughtful. Our room was spotless with an absolutely fabulous view, with the Padstow harbour a short walk away. The breakfasts were great and cooked to order......
The hosts were very attentive without being intrusive, and we have already booked for our stay next year.

Fantastic view over estuary.Room very comfortable with luxurious bedding and very clean. Nice toiletries in shower room. Breakfast had special awards and was very nice, but not the best we had during our week traveling Cornwall. Saw one of the owners who showed us to our room, but only a waitress at breakfast, who was very quiet, which we found to be a pity as often owners are very keen to promote their local area and suggest places to go. Would recommend

Room Tip: Gorgeous views overlooking estuary and even though on a road very quiet

I am so sorry I didn't get to meet you at breakfast but it is only myself and the waitress and I do all the cooking so I am rather trapped in the kitchen during the morning. My husband is a fisherman so is never there in the mornings. I do try and meet the guests after they have eaten but it is not always possible if guests arrive late for breakfast. My apologies again and I do hope it didn't spoil your stay.
