The Mandalay
Ranked #18 of 34 Mevagissey B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 September 2013

When we came to Mandalay, Joe was sitting outside and gave us the feeling your home, I could walk in to the garden up the hill . Then Jill came. She is ever such a nice lady,
Immediatly telling if something isn`t right, just tell her.
Its like a warm bath, You feel at ease an at home, If you come there for many years.
The vieuw from there house over de village is superb.
Going to Mevagissey was the best holiday we had in The whole of England. And we`ve been there for many years.
Friendly people and the i wished i could life there, .
Thanks to Joe and Jill, There is no better place to stay there,The food is fantastic. Every day is a treat.. The rooms are spotless. And Joe will give information of possibilties where you can go to. We certainly book again when we are going. . It was heaven on Earth. You can walk to the harbour, The townvillage is ever so nice. beautifull shops . Thank you ever so much. No we are back in the Netherlands, but if someone would, say, You can go back. I would say WHEN.

All I can say is don't believe everything you read!!! If you want to experience Fawlty Towers then this is the place for you!!. Don't expect quality food - Mandaly motto is quantity over quality!! Asked for grapefruit juice but never got! The only good thing about this B&B is the fact that the sheets were clean and the bed was reasonably comfortable. I do wonder who writes these reviews. Did we stay at the same place?? Two ighuanas sharing the breakfast lounge - albeit in a tank - and ferrets outside! You get the picture???

We spent the week here and had a fabulous time. The food was excellent the place was spotless and the location amazing and the owners... what can I say? Well to be honest they are the very best hosts anyone going to Mevagissey would wish to have, they made our stay really brilliant (entertainment 5 star!) All in all the whole week was the best stay we ever had anywhere in England! If any of you reading this want a truly fabulous time then book now its the best and you would be daft to miss out. Dave and Jean Perkins, Alton Hants

Room Tip: The front bedroom with the bay window excellent!

Recently managed to get a late booking at the Mandalay in August, chosen as it allows well behaved dogs to stay - and for free !!! My partner and I found the greeting from Jill so very welcoming and full of humour, meeting Joe and the ferrets later sealed the deal ! This place is a few minutes walk in to Mevagissey so is perfectly located for all sorts of activities and interests. The breakfast was first class, cooked by Joe and served by Jill with her very own brand of humour, she even provided a plastic bag for left overs for the dog. We can certainly recommend this place and would return there in the future. Best wishes to Jill and Joe who make a great team.

Room Tip: The front room has cracking views

Second time in a year that we've stayed here and once again The Mandalay helped to make the holiday. As usual Joe and Jill were great hosts and it felt like being at home. Joe did us proud with the breakfasts, although he doesn't seem to do small and the room was comfortable and clean and of a good size. They couldn't do enough for you, nothing was too much touble. Great value for money. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Rooms looking over the Valley are good.

Booked at short notice, for a few days away. Never been to Cornwall before what a beautiful place. The Mandalay was perfect couldn't fault it, the hosts were lovely, the breakfasts were huge could only mange a full English on the first day, but my husband loved it kept us going till late afternoon.
Would defiantly stay again.
Thanks again
