A warm welcome was waiting on arrival, the room was well decorated clean and beautifully sea side themed. A most delicious cake greeted us along with tea and coffee. The room had a sea view as stated. There were books and games to borrow and an honesty bar which came in very handy. There was decking at the front with...

We have stayed over in The Cove Guesthouse with our 2 girls and enjoyed every minute of it. Owner Andy has been very helpful in sharing interested facts about Newquay and surrounding areas. Breakfast served was delicious and homemade cakes waited in the room on our arrival. Our stay over was perfect and we would definitely recommend The Cove to...

We arrived at The Cove on the Friday and immediately fell in love with view from our room, lovely hosts and the brilliant breakfast. Ideally located to go around Cornwall. Must try is the Rick Stein's Fistral restaurant for some traditional fish n chips!

They upgraded us to another room with beachview. When we arrived we were welcomed with homemade cake in our room. The room as well as the bathroom are very nice, modern,...

What can I say, a fab weekend away in just a stunning part of the country. We decided to take a trip to Newquay to get away to celebrate our 4 years of being together. We chose the Cove as it was so near to the sea, something that I just love and it was the best choice ever. Andy...

This is a gem of a b&b. Bright, clean, ultra friendly. Unfortunately my room - i think it was #4 - was the only one without an ensuite. I had to go across a landing to a very lovely bathroom, admittedly, but all in all a very impressive accommodation. I'd give it 6 stars, but because of the bathroom issue...
