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.
