10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
A great stay
"This is a great B&B. The room was lovely (Turret) with beautiful views and a really marshmallow feel to the bed. A lovely breakfast was served from in the privacy of our own room. The hosts were very friendly and it was located perfectly for great restaurants (in our case The Seafood restaurant-Rick Stein was a minutes walk away) and also the Seafood school 30 seconds walk."

Treverbyn House - still wonderful, five years on
"Have just got back from our second visit to Treverbyn House. This visit was even better than last time - 5 years ago (if possible!) We stayed in the Turrett Room, equipped with everything to make your stay a home from home, including a lovely comfortable bed - especially welcome when you have been out in the Cornish countryside all day! Beautiful estuary views, to enjoy with a glass of wine in the evening and whilst having breakfast in the morning. Would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone, well worth the money. Gary and the lovely lady from the Ukraine who served us breakfast every day, made us feel very welcome."

One of the nicest B & Bs we have stayed in
"We stayed for 3 nights in the Turret Room and wished we had stayed longer. Definitely worth paying the extra for the yellow room or the turret toom as they share a quaint wrought iron balcony and have views over the estuary and towards Rock. Gary, the owner is very welcoming and perdonally cooks the breakfasts. There is no breakfast room. Instead it is served in your room at the time of your choice, or if the weather is fine on the decking area in the lovely garden. The room was charming, furnished in a victorian style, very much in keepiing with the house, with a large brass bed and a huge bathroom with separate shower and bidet. There were lots of nice extra touches too like a complementary decanter of sherry in the room, which was replenished each day and good quality toiletries. Gary can also provide you with bikes for a very reasonable Â£5 per day. Service is friendly and personal - for example, it was noticed that I had left the water melon from the fresh fruit salad provided at breakfast and the next mornings, no water melon! Padstow is a beautiful place to stay with lots of good restaurants - even if half of them now seem to be owned by Rick Stein! And there is lots to do in the surrounding areas - we could easily have stayed a week. We have no hesitation in recommending both the area and Teverbyn House and thought it offered excellent value for money compared to many other places we have stayed in a similiar (higher) price brackets."

Stay here if you go to Padsow
"This is a lovely house, with a friendly owner and staff. We stayed in the "pink room", which is white and very nice. The furniture is comfortable and gives the room a very pleasant atomosphere. The complimentary drinks tray is certainly the most extensive I have ever seen, even containing filter coffee (decaf also) and your own cafetiere to brew it in. There is even a little decanter of sherry for guests. The terrace has wonderful views over Padstow harbour and is a lovely place to eat breakfast if you are not lucky enough to have booked a sea view room and can breakfast in there. On colder days you can have breakfast in your room. I would definitely book here on my return to Padstow, and I will return to this lovely little town. One more tip, book ahead to eat at Jamie Oliver's fifteen, just down the coast. The food is wonderful,and if you book at sunset you are in for a real treat (try to get a table in the window but take a light jacket ot keep off the chill). Rick Stein's chippy is also good value, however Padstow has much more to offer than Padstein would have you believe."

Genial host, relaxing surroundings
"Wonderful Edwardian house with views of the Camel Estuary. Stayed in the Green Room and Turret Room - wooden floors, antique furniture, stylish old bathroom fittings. Gary is a genial host. Breakfasts were peerless during a two-week tour of England - homemade jam on croissants with a cafetiere of strong coffee, or fish with poached egg, cereals or the full English - all were served up with courtesy and charm."

"From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and welcomed. We were greeted by our host Gary, (he makes the best full English breakfast I've had in a long long time!) who is very easy going and friendly and made you feel at home straight away. Stayed in the 'Pink Room' for two nights - the room was charming, cosy and very comfortable. It has a huge bathroom, tea & coffee and complimentary sherry was a really nice touch. There is a deck at the front of the house with some tables and chairs and a fantastic view of the estuary. This B&B is in a fabulous location and fantastic views. Only a few minutes walk into the town centre. Definitely recommended and only wished we could've stayed longer!!"

Lovely view & convenient for town
"The Hotel commands a very good position in Padstow. Not far to run if it starts raining - and they provide umbrella's at the door (which proved useful!) The view from the Yellow room is fantastic. The building is being sensitively restored, with period features, including that rather wonderful bath that other reviews mention. Only small fault I have is that the windows do rattle - obviously the wind was blowing the wrong way that night. Breakfast was good, although you have to order the night before - personally I find this restrictive as I never know what I'm going to fancy. It's also normally served in the bedroom, however we went with another couple, so they arranged it so we could breakfast together, rather than in our rooms. This appeared to be in the owner's dining room - we felt rather awkward the first day, but the hosts were nice and friendly, so it was fine in the end. There are no communial areas at all inside - so if you are in a larger party you have to get together in your rooms, but i'm sure the patio would be lovely (weather permitting). Also no WiFi or digital TV (but why would you want to watch TV anyway in such a lovely place)."

Great place to stay
"This a great place to stay. You are only minutes from the main habour and the local attractions. The house has fantastic views and off street parking. We stayed in a standard room which looked over the garden, The rooms at the front of the house would provide great views of the sea. The house and our room was spacious and had great features that gave it great character. Breakfast was served in our room and was one of the best I've had on holiday. The cooked breakfast was perfect and the home made jams made from fruit grown in the garden was a real treat. The owner and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We would stay here again, if you have booked you will not be disappointed."

Best place we have stayed
"This luxury B&B has beautiful views of Padstow and is just seconds from the town. We had a standard room which was beautiful - the more expensive ones have views which would be worth every penny of the still-reasonable rate. Even if you only have a standard, there is a lovely front terrace guests are welcome to use. The house simply stunning inside. Bedrooms were all dark wood and white linen. Everything you need is there and the nicest touch was the little decanter of sherry in your room. Breakfasts are excellent and, weather permitting, can be taken on the terrace. Otherwise, it is served in you room. The owner, Gary Clark, could not have been nicer. Anyone going to Padstow for the night to eat at Rick Stein's would be better staying here than any of the chef's more expensive accommodation in the town. Only warning - book up early because it fills up quickly."

Fantastic period style experience
"We were looking for accommodation in Padstow on Good Friday, which was a difficult task. Surprisingly, Treverbyn House still had a vacant room (the "yellow room"). Although the room rate was above our budget, we decided to take the room and didn't regret it for a moment! The room was stunning with a lot of period features such as dark wooden floor, fireplace and soft white linen bedsheets. The bathroom was really nice. It was very big and had an Edwardian bath. The breakfast was great. It had to be booked in advance as it is normally served in the bedroom (not for us as we had to leave early in the morning). We went for the continental breakfast with cereal, croissants and pain au chocolat. The owner was very friendly. The only slight downfall was the window insulation. There was a winter storm during the night and the room was cold in the morning. However, this would not keep us at all from returning to this wonderful place."
