    Guest Reviews

    "Arrived at the guest house and were met by Birgitt who showed us the side entrance to which we had our own key so we could come and go as we pleased. The rooms were well presented and very clean. There are 3 rooms all named after Daphne du Mauriers novels. We were in the Jamaica Inn room. The bed was huge and the pillows were wonderful. There was a kettle with tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Fresh milk was supplied every day and also fresh water. 

    You are given a menu everyday which you leave on a little table near the dining room which also had a bell in case you needed anything. Breakfast consisted of orange juice, tea, coffee, full English, cereals, fruit, yogurt and salmon with scrambled egg. The toast was made with homemade granary bread.
    It was all excellent and have no negatives at all and would definitely recommend this place.
    Thank you for a wonderful stay."

    "We had a lovely week in Cornwall and stayed at the Mandeley guest house in one of their 3 rooms.
    The host was absolutely brilliant, the room really comfortable and spotlessly clean, breakfast was cooked to order with a really great choice -obviously best quality ingredients and so nicely presented. Nothing is too much trouble for the hosts to make your stay the best.

    We couldn’t have asked for a better location, just a couple of minutes drive to the lovely Porthleven where there are some fantastic restaurants, and if it’s dramatic coast lines and beautiful beaches this is the place to go, and when we return we will stay at the Mandeley guest house again and recommend it to friends and family."

    “Location is very central for getting around Cornwall. The breakfast was very good, with a modest variety of food due to Covid-19 restrictions, but there were enough choices to have. The staff were lovely people. The room was very well decorated and modern and the en-suit was excellent.😊😊😊😊😊”
