Karenza Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Gillan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 October 2012

On our walk on the SWCP we stayed one night in Karenza B&B in Gillan. Jayne gave us a very warm welcome like old friends and we were totally delighted by our accomodation.
Our accomodation was an apartment consisting of a lounge with a sofa, a dining table and sat-tv, a bedroom with a queen sized bed and a bathroom with a bath tub which we shared with another guest (there are two more rooms). As we read in other ratings, Jayne normally seems to host only one guest at one time, but Jayne asked the other guest whether he would mind us staying at the same time. We were glad he didn't, because there are only very few accomodations in Gillan and as a walker you can't go to the next town just like that.
The accomodation was very clean and very nice and tastefully decorated - we felt at home. In the evening Jayne prepared a very delicious two-course dinner and in the morning a wunderful breakfast that gave us enough energy for the next day walking.
Karenza B&B is located quietly at the edge of the village above the Gillan Creek, less than a ten minutes walk.
We can highly recommend to stay at Karenza B&B. It is exceptional and Jayne's just a wonderful host. We would have stayed longer, if we had time.

Karenza is a lovely B&B situated in the tiny village of Gillan only a few hundred yards from the amazingly beautiful Gillan Creek, a quiet and picturesque spot along the SW coast path. Jayne and Steve really went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable and it is easy to see that they enjoy and take great pride in what they do. The food was lovely especially the bread and butter pudding which tasted like non-other that I have had before, and the breakfast can only be commended as a feast for the eyes and stomach (fresh fruit, muesli, porridge, full English). The accommodation is clean, comfortable and well looked after with a choice of three bedrooms a cosy living room and a very nice bathroom which are only let to one group at a time. Having camped the previous 3 nights and having walked 80km to get there we left feeling fresh and relaxed wishing that we had the time to stay a few more nights!

This is a really lovely B&B, quit different to any other we have stayed in. Jayne only books 1 party in at any time, so although there were only 2 of us we had the 3 bedroom apartment to ourselves. The bedrooms are lovely and bright, very comfortable beds, and the lounge area lovely to enjoy the dinner and breakfast that Jayne will provide. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. Nice touch to have fresh flowers in the rooms. Janyne's cooking is super, we enjoyed a great evening meal with a bottle of wine that she will provide if you wish. Breakfast included a really nice fresh fruit salad and yogurt as well as the normal cereal, toast and fry up. If you are walking the SW path as we were you must stay here.

My wife and I have just walked around a section of the South West Coastal path and arrived at Karenza hot and sticky. From the moment we arrived the hospitality from Jayne was exceptional and we had an extremely pleasant and comfortable stay with good food and accommodation.
Jayne is a very good host and you are spoiled for choice with three bedrooms a delightful lounge and bathroom. An exceptional B & B.

Room Tip: Three rooms all good.

How lovely to receive such a warm welcome from Jayne and Steve; we were very wet, very muddy and very tired and they were so helpful, even offering to wash the mud off our clothes.
The accommodation was superb - we had an apartment with tastefully-decorated sitting room, bedroom, large bathroom with lots of toileteries and lots of towels.
We walked to the pub about a mile away despite being offered a meal by our hosts - big mistake!!The welcome at the New Inn was frosty to say the least and the meal was poor.Judging by breakfast the following morning, we should have eaten at Karenza.
Breakfast consisted of porridge, fresh fruit salad, fresh orange juice, a full English breakfast, toast and preserves and all beautifully seerved on lovely white china.
This is what all B and Bs should aspire to and it is obvious that the owners enjoy what they are doing.Do pay a visit.

My wife and I spent a glorious one night at Karenza Bed and Breakfast last August during our tour of Cornwall, England. Our hosts Steve and Jayne were very gracious and the rooms where clean, comfortable and well decorated. The breakfast they provided was a virtual feast. Lots of nice scenery there as well - almost tropical with the palm trees. We would definately go back to Karenza!
