Quiet location

A little difficult to find, but a lovely location. Nice room with ensuite bathroom, good tea making facilities. Excellent breakfast choices. Exceptional value for money.

Beautiful!

What a wonderful place! My only criticism was that there was no wireless, despite that being one of the major selling points of the property.

Wonderful Home

Posted May 28, 2014
Very nice people, the breakfasts were delicious, and the room we stayed at was spacious and comfortable. If we travel to Cornwall in the future, we would hope there is an open room available. Close to St Michael's Mount and St Ives as well.

Lovely apart from the damp smell

Posted Nov 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
Lovely property in great location, lovely size family room and nice breakfast. But I have given a low overall score as the room and particularly the bedding smelt damp and mouldy to the point my clothes smelt like the room when unpacking in the next hotel 2 days later :-(

Nice B & B

Posted Sep 16, 2013
Pros: Liked the large room and quietness.
Cons: New towels and bed mattress and bedlinen. Bathroom renovation. Wardrobe.
Location: Visited St Ives, Penzance, St Michaels Mount, Mousehole and Truro.
We enjoyed the quiet location and this was ideal as our friends lived close by.Would have liked the heating on. Could not find out how to do this. Did not see the host very often (twice in 4 days). There was a jug but no coffee. There was no place to hang any clothes. Plenty of drawers etc. No iron in the room. Bath towels were very worn and need updating as does the bathroom and the bed needs a new mattress.

Charming B&B

Posted Sep 9, 2013
I really loved staying at the Old Vicarage... the owners are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great, and the room was very comfortable. Very quiet location, but just a short walk from a bus stop and restaurants in the village. Highly recommended!

ok

The place is run down, out all functions but there's nothing with wow factor and no reason to want to come back to, everything is dated and not huge advantage of the location either, don't think it's in st ives or penance it's not! And remember don't go hear of your not keen on graveyards

Quaint Cornwall! Fabulous breakfast!

Posted Jun 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
Stayed for two nights as had to work nearby: Good value for money and had a homley feel, much better than staying on a boring Travel Lodge. Tucked away in the beautiful countryside of Cornwall the Old Vicarage had character as did its owner! Given a key so as you could come and go as you pleased, a wonderful breakfast to last the day and the service was prompt and accommodating. The owner was very helpful. Things to improve -your marketing, put cards out for the BnB too not just your other business, needs to update bathroom and make signs very clear from the road, perhasp a communal lounge for visitors. Thank you John and Rosie or a lovely stay!

We would visit again if in the area.

Lovely, well organized and complete breakfast. Rosie, John and Emily made us feel most at home ... even did our laundry for us at no cost. The room had all the basic amenities and clean. The mix of hot and cold water in the shower could have been a little better. The 400 yard drive in to the Old Vicarage is tree lined with farms on both sides of the road. All in all, comfortable and good value for money.
