Welcome to Mandeley Guest House in Helston

Our guest house is situated at the edge of town on the A394. We offer quiet, newly refurbished, all en-suite guest accommodation for a maximum of six people. Our guests have their own separate entrance to the side of the house and although our bedrooms are on the ground floor there is still a step into the building and another couple of steps into the dining room and lounge. We aim very much to meet the needs of all our guests. However, the age and the layout of the rooms and doors are too narrow for wheelchair users. The following statement is a summary of our provision. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions and we will endeavour to help.
