The Gables Guest House
Ranked #37 of 97 St Austell B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 June 2011

We booked this place as we were going to see a concert at the Eden Project, we were very pleased with it.
Barbara and her husband gave us a lovely welcome even though we were early and served us tea in the beautiful gardens while our room was readied.
The room was furnished to a high standard and has all the facilities you would need for a short break...the beds are extremely comfortable too.
The full Engllsh breakfast was one of the best we've had in a long time...We would return for this alone,
all in all this place is a credit to it's lovely owners and St Austell
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

We booked The Gables after reading so many good reviews for a two-day stay in the area. These were well-deserved. The welcome was very warm and we immediately felt cared for, with the offer of an evening meal - with local beer and wine - on a wet evening. Everything was spotless and there are lots of thoughtful touches. Comfortable and enjoyable. Cannot recommend highly enough.

We stayed for a couple of nights at The Gables in their 4 poster room. We were made to feel very welcome on arrival, with a complementary cup of tea and cake whilst we filled in the paperwork. The room was nicely decorated, very comfy and well equipped, including a fridge which is always handy. Just a couple of minor points - the room isn't the largest, so don't expect a huge amount of space. Also, the flatscreen TV was the smallest I've ever seen! It would be well worth replacing this, because it really was quite hard to watch and the sound wasn't great either.
Breakfasts were top quality, and I believe evening meals were available too, which could be handy, especially of arriving late.

A wonderful welcoming B &B, the two rooms we booked were immaculate, modern and very clean with added personal touches.A varied breakfast available from healthy to traditional, the hosts Barbara and Michael were very accomodating to ourselves and my elderly parents, The gardens to sit in on a warm evening are beautifully kept. Overall a first class B & B.

You will get one of the friendliest Cornish welcomes at The Gables. It is a very relaxing place to stay. Our room ,with four poster bed , was spotlessly clean and very well eqipped, with even little extras like an adaptor for an electric toothbrush charger , a local map, and a complimenatry box of chocolates. The pot of tea on arrival was most welcome too. There is a pretty garden and the location is good, and very easy to find is coming from the Eden Project. The bed was was very comfy and we had a relaxing night's sleep. Breakfast was good, with range of choices on the menu. The guesthouse does evening meals - and the sunday roast smelt good - but we had already booked at Austell's Restuarant so did not try it, The only downside was that parking was slightly awkward and it was more expensive than similar standard guest houses we have stayed in elsewhere (although we had a free up-grade to a better room!) Having said that, it is an expensive area and the price we paid seemed to be the going-rate. We would stay there again if we returned to the area.

it was our first time in Cornwall and we stayed at the Gables Guest House for a couple of nights. We had an amazing stay! The guesthouse is beautiful and charming.
The room was very nice (4 poster bed), romantic and immaculate. The bathroom was modern and extremely clean (very importantly!). The service is to a high standard and the hostess Barbara is very nice and welcoming. I was looking forward to the breakfast every morning, great selection of food and the pancakes were very good! We will recommend this guesthouse to everyone. You will be welcomed by a very warm-hearted couple and you will enjoy your stay without the shadow of a doubt! G & D
