“Exactly what I wanted!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

I was made to feel very welcome by the friendly hosts. My single room in the annexe was private and cosy, and the breakfast was well cooked and tasty. I visited the Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project which were close by. Highly recommended!

What a wonderful hotel. The service was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Peter made our stay as comfortable and memorable as possible with a great welcome. Lovely room and great breakfast. Perfect location for exploring the local area. Would definitely recommend and will be staying again.

Lovely atmosphere, well sited for getting around the area. Room and food were lovely - but icing on the cake was the welcome and advice from our hosts which enabled us to make the most of a brief trip - we managed Charlestown, the Eden Project (fabulous), Fowey, Padstow and the coast road - lovely.! Thank you both x

Room Tip: four poster bed added an extra little bit of luxury!

Thank you to Peter and Jane for our lovely (but all too short) stay at The Elms. The Elms is very well situated to explore the area including Lost Gardens of Heligan (my favourite!) and the Eden Project, both of which are a few minutes away. We spent an evening at Charlestown which is a beautiful now dis-used port transporting clay and we had a lovely dinner by the harbour. Our room was very clean (we had the Eden Suite with the Whirlpool bath which was like having a Jacuzzi at home). We would thoroughly recommend The Elms and will be booking again to explore Cornwall more. See you soon Peter

My wife and I came to Cornwall to see our friend get married and spent two perfect nights here. Our first impressions was this is nice as we drove in the drive. Peter our host greeted us at the door and showed us to our room which was the honeysuckle suite. It was well kept. The breakfast was of a high standard and cooked fresh. We will be coming back to the Elms guest house and recommending it to friends and family

A very tidy and well facilitated guest house with lovely helpful hosts in a good location. The included hearty breakfast makes for an affordable excellent stay well recommended. There's even a whirpool bath if it takes your fancy.

My daughter Sarah and I stayed for one night while visiting Heligan gardens. We immediately noticed the lovely Bhudist style front garden so it was a pleasure to meet Peter and chat about Thailand. We stayed in Sweet Briar which was very comfortable and had a great bathroom. Peter is a great host and very friendly,our full English breakfast cooked by him was delicious and we would definatly stay there again. Angela B.
