We always used to self cater when visiting Cornwall (before I emigrated to Australia) and it was always my intention to try out The Top House for accommodation - having beforehand only eaten there and used the bar facilities. I booked online and obviously saw the photos of the room beforehand. We tweeked our dates so that we were able to have three consecutive nights in the Kynance Room with views towards Kynance Cove (in my opinion the most beautiful cove/area in the whole world, especially at low tide!). The photos do not do the room justice - it was beautiful. All white and pale blue decor and furnishings with a great, spacious bathroom with bath and shower and the room was double aspect to take advantage of the wonderful views over the town and towards the sea. I have always had a soft spot for The Lizard peninsular in particular and could never visit Cornwall without coming here. And the Top House is great. It has had a number of owners over the years and when I first started coming I am sure it was actually called the Lizard (and not altogether sure the accommodation was even available) although has since reverted to its original name The Top House. We had dinner there one night - it was nice but not outstanding. Crab seems to always be served shredded whereas my husband in particular would like it to be chunky.Breakfasts were wonderful, especially the fresh fruit platter served with croissants and yoghurt. Would recommend The Top House and if available try to book the Kynance Room. We were sad to leave.
