“Tasty food and friendly service”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

Booked two nights at this B and B to celebrate my birthday. Paid a bit more than I normally would have for a B and B. We had the smallest room (2) as all the other rooms were booked up but this room was totally adequate, plenty of too to move about and had use of an en suite shower room.

The choices for breakfast were fab with a selection of home made muesli/granola, fruits, juices etc and a menu if cooked items. Thoroughly recommend the sausage and 'hogs pudden' - very tasty. Table service from staff and meet/greet from the owners was fantastic.

The reason for 4 stars rather than 5 is mainly around my expectation given the cost to stay here plus other reviews. The continental breakfast consisted of a croissant that was not fresh - it had been defrosted. One of the vanity lights in the bathroom was hanging off the wall and complimentary bottles of water and biscuits were not replaced when the room was cleaned. Lastly, the shower had no hot water on the second day. This was reported when we left and the owner apologised.

Despite the above, a very pleasant stay in a very good location with excellent food and service.

Stayed July 2014

As to the price: We are not a B&B, we are designated a Hotel by Sawday's and a Guesthouse by the Tourist information Centre. We have to pay VAT so we will be 20% more than a 3 bedroom B&B. But we offer an honesty bar, a guest sitting room, a choice of rooms at different grades and a car park to park in - unlike most Padstow B&Bs. This is a general misconception and I understand the confusion. If the government reduce the VAT for the leisure industry to 5% (like the rest of Europe) then we will be closer to the B&B tariffs.
We are very sorry that Room 2 did not come up to expectations - we have had some issues with the wall behind the basin in the bathroom, for which we intend to do in the winter when we are not permanently booked out. It is going to take at least three days to do as the whole 'lath & plaster' wall will have to be replaced . We should have warned you about the light. The water issue is purely down to one of the two huge tanks not working - it is now fixed and we are sorry for the inconvenience.

From the moment you park you love it! Beautiful garden and decking area, honesty bar and a host with the most fantastic moustache! Sounds strange but it's got to be mentioned! We stayed in the bay room, luxurious bath, 4 poster bed and all of the complimentary toiletries you will ever need! We loved billie the dog and touches like fresh milk instead of cartons make all the difference! The breakfast was without doubt the best breakfast I have ever had... Granola, fruit mixes, bread, hot food, old fashioned egg top-cutters and cake too! 10/10 :)

Room Tip: The bay room!

I took Hugo's advice on what rooms to select for me and my wife, and my elderly mother. We were not disappointed. Both rooms were tastefully furnished and suited us perfectly. Everyone was so accommodating to my mothers needs. I can only echo the comments left by other guests - Hugo, Pippa and girls well done! You set the standard for B & B.

Room Tip: Great views from rooms 4 and 8.

Just returned from a 3 night stay. 15 minute walk from the crowds in Padstow centre. Great hosts, good rooms, good service, good breakfasts-wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Padstow for my next trip

Room Tip: 10 and 11 on the ground floor, private patio and separate entrance to main hotel access

We recently stayed here for 2 nights and I have to say it was fantastic. The breakfast is amazing, even for vegetarians such as myself. The vegetarian sausages were home cooked and very tasty.
Pippa and Hugo are very welcoming and make you feel at home. We will definitely be going back soon.
We stayed in another hotel local to this on our 3 rd night , their rates higher and the food quality and accommodation a lot lower. Cannot fault this little hidden gem

What a wonderful place to stay and just outside Padstow. The breakfasts are out of this world and complement Rick Stein,s dinner. If coming to this part of the world this is the place to stay but you will need to book early. Suggest Coogan and Bryden visit this part of the world. No need to go abroad for holiday. Hugo and Pippa are real stars. Would give more than 5 if allowed.

For a weekend visit to Padstow, Woodlands was ideal. Booking was easy and efficient.
Reasonably close to the village, lovely relaxed atmosphere, clean well appointed rooms and a great breakfast.
Staff were attentive and helpful.
