Karen (The owner) was genuinely lovely! She made us feel truly welcome and ensured we were well looked after and comfortable throughout our 3 day stay. Compliments to the chef for making us such delicious breakfasts too! Melvill Guest House is impeccably clean, and the care and pride that the owners have in their property is clear to see. Not only do I heartily recommend Melvill to anyone visiting this part of Cornwall, I intend to return for another long weekend stay in the near future. Thank you Karen for working so hard to ensure us of a pleasant and memorable stay x Charlie

Having to leave and go back to work! ;)

The Melvill guesthouse was in a well placed location with just a 10 minute walk into town and a 5 minute walk to the beach. The bedroom was a good size with plenty of storage, tv, wifi and tea/coffee making facilities. The bed was very comfortable and despite being on a main road into town, quiet too. I am a vegan, and so a vegan cooked breakfast including Linda McCartney sausages was a good start to each day, as was the best fresh fruit selection of any hotel or guesthouse I've stayed in, and I've stayed in plenty.

I can't think of any negatives.

Warm welcome and help with lugging our cases up to the first floor. Very clean room and large bathroom. About 10 to 15 mins walk into town centre and a bit less to the railway station. Great breakfast. Would stay there again.

Very small thing, but I like to look at a menu for breakfast and there wasn't one. As I said, it's only a small thing.

Good breakfat

Being directed to a poky small table near the kitchen for breakfast, when a nice table in the bay window remained unoccupied. Restrictive breakfast hours (8-9am) Double room a bit on the small side for the price

This was a very comfortable place to stay as a starting point to explore the towns around. Karen was an excellent hostess and made us feel very welcome and was helpful.
