“Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

Service was superb, clean and tidy place. Lovely couple who had local knowledge and always happy to go beyond to help out. Breakfast was great with a lot of selection. Couldn't fault the stay at all. Would go again in future if heading to St Austell. Highly recommended.

Upon arrival at Topos we were a bit unsure as it did not look entirely like the photos from the front (although to be fair, we did arrive in horrible weather conditions). However, Topos is beautifully decorated inside, and we felt very comfortable during our stay. The furnishing is very tasteful and we really enjoyed the little touches such as the variety of teas in our room.

Greg was a very hospitable and welcoming host, and was extremely helpful in drawing us a map and pointing out good places to eat and drink. He is also an excellent cook and we enjoyed very much a full English breakfast!

Note that the king size room bathroom is private, but not en suite. This was not really a problem for us, and it does say on the website but we did not realise this!

Overall, we had a lovely stay at Topos and would absolutely recommend.

Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing stay.

Topos is an absolutely amazing place to stay as not only is the actual accommodation lovely and beyond expectation of your usual B&B but Greg the owner goes out of his way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible . We stayed at Topos in order to visit the Eden project which only a 15 minute drive away and definitely intend to return in the spring to visit lots of other places of interest close by . Topos is also very close to St Austell's Town Centre which offers a great choice of affordable places to eat.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for new years. It was a perfect place for us. The owners were lovely and extremely helpful with advice on where to go and beat places to park!
The breakfast was very yummy. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was beatuiful. It even had 2 little arm chairs with pull out foot stalls. They had a perfect little bar where we could keep our drinks in a fridge plus they gave us a wine ice sleeve for our wine.
They even told us the best route home for some more beautiful coastal views.

I would recommend this place for anyone.

Based on these reviews we picked this B&B and we are glad that we did. We weren't sure what to expect when we arrived outside as it doesnt look like your usual B&B, but inside its so spacious, clean and friendly. It was an pleasant walk over to the St Austell Brewery and a nice walk into town too.
Greg the owner was very welcoming and made you feel at home and the breakfast was very tasty and filling. Great value and we would stay again if we were in St Austell.
The room was clean; tidy and comfortable with modern decoration and amenities.

Spend one night here, on a visit to the Eden Centre. On arrival we were made to feel very welcome by Greg, given a quick tour of the unusual but fabulous house and facilities and then a comprehensive description and map of the surrounding area for an evening visit and meal.

Our room was the smaller double, but was very pleasant with everything one might need, with even a flask of cooled water placed on the bedside table in the evening for a glass of cool water at night. Breakfast was perfect - a lovely cooked full English with orange juice and coffee.

All in all a great time in a very interesting location, and we would certainly recommend to any one looking in the area.
