Honeycombe House
Ranked #9 of 34 Mevagissey B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Stayed for three nights as a short break. Already knew Mevagissey so had an idea of the location of Honeycombe House, but was still stunned by the wonderful views from the breakfast room. Stayed in the "Wordsworth" room - a double with en-suite and view out to sea. Lovely room. Spotlessly clean and plenty of provisions. Val and Ian were totally accommodating and friendly. Also got a chance to meet the two dogs before we left! The breakfast range was good and the portions were sensible and filling. Mevagissey is a good base for a swathe of Cornwall. Easy to get to Truro and we travelled across to the north coast very easily. Heligan and Eden are so near. Quite happy to recommend this b&b to anyone wanting a quiet, friendly and good value stay. Already set up for a return (longer) stay next year in one of the rooms with a balcony and view across the harbour.

Room Tip: The en-suite toilet / shower room in Wordsworth could be a little tight for people of a portly frame...

Stayed one night whilst walking the South West Coastal Path. I was in the single room "Stevenson" which had its own shower and toilet just down the corridor. Spotlessly clean. Great to have breakfast in the veranda overlooking the sea and a wide menu choice; I love having fruit included. The only problem was that Honeycombe House was at the top of a hill having walked up hills all afternoon!

We were lucky enough to get one of the balcony rooms. What a perfect position overlooking the village. And the view while one is having breakfast in stunning. Val and Ian`s service is friendly and efficient and their attention to detail is absolutely wonderful. We would stay there again without hesitation. Thanks Val and Ian.

A short break of three nights at this beautiful b and b. Fourth time we have been here and although the weather was not as good as last August we had a lovely break. The two balcony rooms are our favorite but the view from breakfast room is breath taking too if balcony rooms not available. Ian and Val have got this just right. Looked after us brilliantly without being intrusive. My sister's first visit and they loved it too. Did Eden project this time and lovely circular Hall walk round Fowey and Polruan.

Superb location, great service and great food! This was our second stay, this time with our friends from the US and they, as we, were thrilled! The rooms are comfortable and immaculately clean. We will be back!

Room Tip: Victoria and Albert rooms have balcony with the most amazing views over the harbour and out to sea!

With possibly the best location in Mevagissey, Honeycombe House is a wonderful place to stay. Albert room, with its large balcony, was very comfortable and had superb views overlooking the village and the harbour. The room was spotless and well-equipped. Breakfast was delicious and served with a spectacular view out to sea. Ian and Val were the perfect hosts and we would definitely go back. Henry and Elena.

Room Tip: Albert or Victoria, both rooms have a fabulous balcony.
