“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 18 September 2011

What a fantastic place we found tucked away in St Austell. We spent four days in what we can only describe as the best guest house we have ever been to. The room we booked was the one advertised as non ensuite as the other rooms were already booked, but the spacious and modern luxury bathroom was only five steps from the bedroom door and so private it was just like being in ensuite . The bedroom was also very spacious , beautifully decorated and with a very comfy bed , but what made it so special was the door led out to a private decked area with your own table and chairs to use and was so private we were tempted to sit all day and just enjoy the sounds of nature.
Greg and Linda were the perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfasts were excellent and kept us going most of the day , if we wanted we had a beautiful lounge to use and Gregs knowledge of the area was perfect to make sure we enjoyed touring around the area which is surely one of Cornwalls most treasured areas.
Thank you Greg and Linda for letting us share your very beautiful home.

Phill and Shirley

Room Tip: Dont worry if you have the non ensuite room, its very private and not a problem at all.

My wife and I got a very friendly welcome and attention throughout our stay. Our room was spacious and very comfortable with excellent amenities. There was a patio door leading out to the patio with tables & chairs. The bathroom was very well appointed and we had the use of a large, comfortable lounge as well.

The English breakfasts were perfect and set us up for the day ahead!

The property is a short walk up to the town. It is quite hilly of course and some roads are narrow locally - as one would expect. We managed perfectly in our Mondeo!

There are many attactions close by including The Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Helagon, beaches, harbours etc.

We were very impressed with the value for money from this flexible host. We needed to book a single night's (a Saturday) bed and breakfast and no other B&B was willing to do this in the middle of the holiday season - not unreasonably. The rate for the room was very good as well so I didn't hesitate to book Topos.
Greg was a great host - he made sure we felt at home and made available all the facilities of his amazing house. He offered to drive us to the Eden Project and tells us that he does a pick-up service from the railway station as well. The room was comfortable and clean, well supplied with coffee and tea, and lovely and quiet at night. The breakfast was excellent too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely house to anyone.

Breakfast was great, stayed in a room with non ensuite, but toilet was quite clean so it was ok. Not much toiletries provided so bring your own! Lovely teas, cold water in the room was a delight.

Razzer7, Owner at Topos Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review, 24 August 2011
I am delighted you found our information useful for discovering Cornwall. I am sorry you found the Toiletries lacking. We try and give good value for money and have not increased our prices for 4 years and do provide soap and shampoo, dressing gowns in the room that's not en suite, slippers and hairdryer. I am sure if you were paying £70 plus there might be a few more toiletries provided but we are only charging £55 per room per night with full English breakfast and need to keep the costs down in order to remain at this tariff. However we take on board your comments. Kind regards Lynda & Greg

Although staying for only one night, Greg the owner treated us like royalty. The house was immaculate and quirky with so many facilities including a sauna and a bar.
The double on-suite bedroom was clean, bright and well appointed.
The full english breakfast was excellent with individual choice if requested.
If we come back to St Austell we will certainly stay here again.
