“Really Friendly”
Reviewed 26 April 2013

We used No 52 in March 2013 and loved it. Our room was huge and very well decorated. Comfy bed and a lovey shower room/ bath. We toured all over West Cornwall and using No52 was ideally located for us. Kim, the owner and chief cook, makes a stunning breakfast which set us up very nicely for the day. There are cheaper deals around, but when we added the cost of a real English breakfast into account, No 52 worked out to be better value for us.

If you love Cornwall as we do, basing yourselves in Helston is ideal as it is so close to lots of great places to see.

Room Tip: We are coming back in May to see the Flora dance. We have chosen one of the rooms overlooking the st...

Reviewed 7 October 2010

I was staying in a twin room with good size draws but only small wall cavity space for hanging clothes at the back of the property, so It was very peaceful after 2200, as there is a well used pub next door (the blue anchor) which brews its own line of very good beers and is reputed to be the oldest continuess brewing pub in Britain, Saturday night was a bit noisy till midnight but this is a good pub as I said. excellent breakfast, the only problem is the B&B has no parking and as It Is on the main street parking Is limited to 30 mins between 0800-1830, I had to move between a free car park 10 min walk away and one 5 min walk £1.10 for 24hrs parking, this didn't really bother me after 2 days as I could walk through the park after and continue on my many walks around the local hills and rivers and onto the many coves.

Reviewed 28 September 2009

This turned out to be the best B&B on our South West Coast Path trek and it was after our last day. It didn't look too promising. Helston is not a particularly lovely downtown. Then there was no answer at the door. The sign (and a taxi driver) told us to inquire at the Blue Anchor pub next door. It took a while for the busy bartender to get a key and open the front door. He told us just to go in and pick a room. We went to the 3rd floor (2nd in England). It was a great room with good toiletries, not much noise, plenty of space, good plumbing (always an issue in UK). The Blue Anchor is a mecca for beer connoiseurs because they are one of the few pubs left that brews its own ale (Spingo). The breakfast was lovely. This was a great find. If you're exploring the Lizard Peninsula this is a great place to stay.
