Cornwall B&B Reviews

"I thought the whole experience was exceptional. Good sized room and I thought it was phenomenal value for money." Benjamin Lee

"You were a part of our wonderful holidays in Cornwall - many thanks for the most enjoyable stay! And regards to the reception staff!" Dr Wojciech Grudzinski

"We were very, very impressed with the size and standard of accommodation. We were very surprised at the value for money, it all seemed far too cheap. With a few communal sofas, and a TV in each bedroom, we'd be willing to pay an awful lot more." Daniel Ferguson

"Great place to stay - lovely campus, comfortable rooms and useable kitchen, excellent transport links." Dr Paul Stevens

Cornwall Visitor information

Things to do in Cornwall

Visitors are attracted to Cornwall from all over the world for a variety of reasons. From the breathtaking scenery of Land's End to the magnificent Eden Project, to surfing in the clear blue Atlantic, to taking in an art gallery, or simply meandering through a seaside town, this area has something of interest for all visitors.

Known for its beautiful shoreline with towns such as Falmouth, St Ives and Penzance to name a few, nowhere in Cornwall is more than 16 miles from the sea.

For botanical enthusiasts, St Austell is home to the Eden Project, a visitor attraction which includes the world's largest greenhouse. Inside the artificial biomes are plants that are collected from all around the world. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, rediscovered in 1990 after slumbering for over 70 years and Trebah Gardens in Falmouth also showcase a wide range of spectacular flora and fauna.

Fans of celebrity chefs can enjoy a trip to Rick Stein’s Fish & Chip Shop and Deli in Falmouth or Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen in Watergate Bay, as well as an array of restaurants, cafes and bars dotted throughout Cornwall to suit all tastes and budgets.

There are many museums, art galleries and castles for visitors to explore. The Tate in St Ives houses its own modern displays as well as visiting exhibits. The National Maritime Museum in Falmouth is where visitors can learn the history of the local sea farers and Pendennis Castle, Falmouth, was built in 1539 for King Henry VIII to guard the entrance to the River Fal.

In Falmouth itself there are cycle trails to suit all levels, good sailing waters in the Fal Estuary and out to sea, a wide variety of water sports including surfing, kayaking, kite-surfing and gig rowing and scenic walks.

History of Cornwall

Cornwall history

During the British Iron Age Cornwall, like all of Britain south of the Firth of Forth, was inhabited by the Celtic people known as the Britons. The Celtic British language spoken at the time eventually developed into several distinct tongues, including Cornish.  At this time, Cornwall was part of the territory of the tribe of the Dumnonii and after a short period of Roman rule (there is little evidence that Roman rule was effective west of Exeter), Cornwall reverted to rule by independent Celtic chieftains.  After a period of conflict with the Kingdom of Wessex, it became a part of the Kingdom of England which was subsequently incorporated into Great Britain and the United Kingdom.

Some question the constitutional basis for the administration of Cornwall as part of England, arguing that the Duchy Charters of 1337 place the governance of Cornwall with the Duchy of Cornwall rather than the English Crown. These charters are argued to distinguish Cornwall from England constitutionally, to such an extent that Cornwall should not be described as part of England in a constitutional sense. Others do not accept this argument, and assert that Cornwall is constitutionally part of England, citing various other precedents, including Cornwall's representation in the Westminster Parliament from an early date.

It would be useful to know there is no cooking equipment in kitchens. Otherwise, brilliant location for visits to Falmouth and other beautiful places. Daily room tidy with fresh towels and staff always polite and happy. Thank you.

(Review Of Glasney Rooms, Falmouth)

Excellent value. Directions iffy - the instructions said 'follow signs to Porters Lodge' but there wern't any until nearly there. Some WD40 on the door hinges would not go amiss! Signs to car park could be improved.

(Review Of Glasney Rooms, Falmouth)

breakfast was not included in this booking but the overall impression was excellent. We were surprised that the rooms were all en-suite and towels were provided this was not clear on the website. We will certainly recommend the facility and will be visiting again in the future.

(Review Of Glasney Rooms, Falmouth)

Our only complaint is we had to ask for clean towels as no room cleaning was done in the time we were there. Otherwise we had a lovely stay in a beautiful environment.

(Review Of Penryn Summer Rooms, Falmouth)

Not enough towels in the rooms, ceiling in hallway was very dirty with sprayed mud or something similar.3 of the bedrooms had a very damp smell that was so strong that they couldn't be used. Luckily we didn't need all rooms in any case.

(Review Of Glasney Rooms, Falmouth)

Great place to stay - lovely campus, comfortable rooms and useable kitchen, excellent transport links (bus and train). Plus Penryn itself is a nice place with a great organic/local food cafe (Mrs Peabody's Kitchen).

(Review Of Penryn Summer Rooms, Falmouth)

Overall, very good. I would suggest you leave at least one small bar of soap in the ensuite bathrooms. Similarly, the shower curtain was not good enough for the job and water poured onto the bathroom floor. Could you get curtains that reach the bottom of the shower?

(Review Of Penryn Summer Rooms, Falmouth)

Excellent value for money with great facilities. Housekeeping needs a bit more co-ordination as we had no towels or toilet paper on the first night of our stay.

(Review Of Penryn Summer Rooms, Falmouth)

Cheap but no near parking to leave car . Radiator was small but adequate but probably a little cold in the winter . Shower curtains did not reach the bottom so the floor always got wet .
