“Ace Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

In 40 plus years of staying in hotels, B & Bs etc around the British Isles I have never found anywhere offering such good value for money. My wife and I have only one regret - we were only able to stay here for one night. Accommodation is spotless. Location is peaceful and relaxing. Breakfast is the tops. Welcome tray is substantial and free (no filling in chits and paying for extras before you leave). We were welcomed, cosseted and cared for by Jo, a hostess who prides herself on making your stay memorable. Rest assured this is an honest assessment of somewhere we found purely by chance while surfing the internet.

We stayed here for 4 nights last month and it was everything we wanted-and more. We were greeted by Jo and given a great introduction to the property and surrounding area, before being shown to our room. The room was spotless and stocked with everything you could possibly need-snacks, masses of toiletries, drinks and lots of towels to go with the massive ensuite, with huge bath and shower.
The cooked breakfast that we ordered each day was fantastic, and the fresh fruit and cereals were terrific-all served in our own dining room! What a treat! Being able to walk to the Eden Project was a real bonus, but we enjoyed the Lost Gardens of Heligan (just a short drive away) even more.
A fantastic B&B, and a lovely hostess. Thanks Jo.

June 21st 2014 for 6 nights, we stayed with Jo at her delightful home/B&B close to St Austell. Where to start .... Absolutely everything was first class and I mean everything. We received a lovely warm welcome.
Our room was comfort personified - very comfy super-kingsize bed, a range of pillows (I was thrilled to find a memory foam pillow, as I'd forgotten to take mine with me), the ensuite and dressing room was fab too!
A super shower, and a huge selection of toiletries - great if you'd forgotton something, or wanted to try a new product! Views of the garden from our room were beautiful and private.
The breakfasts were unbelievable, so much choice and beautifully prepared and presented! Full range of continental and cooked choices. And our own private dining room - great if like me you're a bit grumpy till you've had your first cup of tea!
We were able to walk to the Eden Project, and were just a short journey away from the Lost Gardens of Heligan and lots of lovely cornish villages to visit. There was nothing we could fault, Jo is definitely the hostess with the mostest! So looking forward to going back again.

Room Tip: Jo has two rooms, we stayed in the room without a bath (don't recall it having a room number...

Fantastic 2 Night stay! Jo made us feel more than welcome in her home, Room was delightful with everything you could need and much more!! Food was top class, dining in your own private room really making the stay feel special...overall me and my girlfriend couldnt fault anything and just wish there was a 6 star option! Will definitely be returning at some point!! Thanks Jo!

Had a wonderful night at Woodpeckers, Jo looked after us spectacularly, the food and location was great and we couldn't have been closer to the Eden Project. Couldn't recommend more highly and will be booking a room for my parents to visit the Eden Project asap!

If you want to feel spoilt this is the place to come! From the drinks & snacks in the room, toiletries in the bathroom to the range of food for breakfast, we were completely spoilt for choice! This is a fantastic B&B with a very generous hostess, bed and breakfast both wonderful, definitely recommend and hope to return.

We stayed for 3 nights in June. A delightful welcome from Jo. Very relaxing and enjoyable. The accommodation and food available was quite outstanding. One of the best B & B we have stayed in, we would definitely recommend to our friends and family and would hope to return again.
