We stayed at The Gables mainly as it seemed a great location to the Eden Project, but also to St.Ives, Lands End, Padstow, Looe etc!
The Gables itself, is run by a lovely couple, who were very friendly and helpful, making sure we had everything we needed.
We stayed in the Penwarne Room, which was very clean with a large ensuite bathroom. The 4 poster bed was very comfortable and the decor in the room was really nice, contemporary and clean. There is a small fridge, which we didn't use, as it seemed very noisy, but this may have settled when left on, but we turned it off again. There's also tea and coffee making facilities and water.
The breakfast was good, a choice of fruit, cereal and a cooked breakfast including massive pancakes as an option! Dinner is also an option if you want it, but we ate out each evening.
St. Austell itself, isn't much to write about, but Mevaggissey is only a short drive away and we ate there each evening.
The Gables, is expensive, but in viewing other places in the area, they all seem to be more pricey. It is however clean and comfortable and did everything we needed it to!
