“Service Above and Beyond”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

My adult daughter and I were treated to a wonderful time at the Honeycombe House in Mevagissey. We were very glad that we spent an extra day at the Honeycombe House because of the great service and the location at the top of the hill overlooking the beautiful coastal town. Every morning the breakfast was fantastic as it was in the porch overlooking the town. Our room was the most comfortable and the breakfast was the best of our entire trip. When we decided to go into the village for dinner and it started to rain, Ian was right there to pick us up so we did not have to walk in the rain.

The only shortcoming was that I wish that we could have spent more time there. Truly the best B and B experience that I have had in the UK after several such trips. I highly recommend it and hope to get back there to spend more time next year.

Ian and Val where great and gracious hosts. Made us feel right at home.

Myself and my partner took my mum and her friend for a 3 night stay in Honeycombe House last weekend and from the minute we arrived until the time we left we couldn't stop smiling !, it's always hard booking something you see on a google search, you just have to take pot luck but this B&B was the nicest we've ever stayed in, not only do you get a choice of anything & everything for breakfast but the view whilst eating is simply breathtaking.

The rooms were lovely and clean with lots of tea, coffee & biscuits.

Ian & Val were very friendly and welcoming too, we will definitely be returning to Honeycombe House and Mevagissey, they are both beautiful

From the very warm welcome to the clean and comfortable bedrooms and not forgetting the fabulous breakfast choicesand of the course the view from the dining room, the best in Mevagissy. Thank you Ian and Val for a wonderful stay. Roger and Karen,Preston Lancs

Room Tip: The balcony offer excellent views

We originally stayed here 10 years ago and decided to return for our 20th anniversary. The room we stayed in had amazing views over the harbour and a balcony to sit on. Ian and Val made us very welcome and also made a special effort to cater for some dietary needs for my wife. The room was clean with plenty of tea and coffee and also some biscuits and local fudge. The 2 balcony rooms also include a reserved parking space which was very handy. Breakfast was great and cooked to order. Plenty of everything. We'll definitely go back.

Room Tip: Choose the balcony rooms for amazing harbour views and a reserved parking space.

I stayed at Honeycombe House with my daughter in the 'Albert' room which was lovely, the main feature being access to a balcony with fantastic views out over Mevagissey bay. The room was well equipped, clean and tidy and complimentary tea/coffee, water and biscuits were restocked everyday. Ian and Val were excellent hosts, there if you needed them but not invading on your privacy at all and they provided a delciious breakfast cooked to order! Again the view was fantastic from the breakfast room where you can watch the goings on around the harbour or gaze out to sea. I would definately recommend staying here to anyone visiting Mevagissey, but would suggest that when booking a room do you best to try and get one with parking as trying to find somewhere to leave your car in the village would be costly and inconvenient. the room we had was allocated a parking space and that really was a bonus!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has allocated parking, I believe only two have it and it's pretty essential
