Rooms ok, bathroom on suite small & cramped, breakfast ok not quality ingredients, bit on the scruffy side, seems expensive for what you get. Best thing close to the Minack theatre. Pub down the road should be avoided, looks like its closing down.

The owners seemed grumpy and disinterested, the bedroom was cramped along with the breakfast room. The breakfast itself provoked sniggers between tables on its..erm..quality. There was hot water though and the room was fairly clean.

We stay at this b&b a few time each year when we are visiting family and always find it perfect x the rooms are spotlessly clean and the breakfast is immense with plenty of choice of quality foods that wouldn't disappoint even the fussiest of eaters. The owners go out of there way to help out and I now feel... More

We were looking forward to staying at Sea View House for one night as part of our SWCP walk, having read some excellent reviews on tripadvisor. Compared to the other B&B's we stayed in, Sea View was disappointing. When we arrived the owner seemed displeased to see us, and we noticed that the house had a cluttered feel and was... More

Walking coastal path and rooms booked for us by Walk the Trail. Having read trip advisor thought we were in for a treat as this B&B had had very good reviews. However to be honest these were truly misleading and I would certainly not recommend. To be greeted with "hope your poles are tethered as had damage to wallpaper in... More

this is a lovely family run b&b that is a 5 minute walk (short cut advised by owners) from the Minack. Nicely decorated ensuit rooms with sky tv. Very comfortable and clean room. Great full breakfast and friendly people. Good value for money. Thanks Ladies :-)

If you're walking the coast path and plan to stay a single night in Porthcurno, I'd recommend staying at Sea View House. It's close to the coast path and very easy to find - near the post office / parking lot. I had a relaxing hot shower after my walk, a good night's sleep and one of the best breakfasts... More

Continuing our trek around the Cornish Coast we had a one-night stop off at Porthcurno. The Guesthouse is back a bit from the beach, on a road which at peak beach going and returning times is very busy...also busy when the local open-air theatre kicks out at 11pm! The Guesthouse was a very welcome sight after our third day trekking... More
