    Superb

    Everything in hotel was ok

    Only one thing - no car park - only public one, but sometimes need to spend 15min, to find gap for car on this "public car park"

    The only recommendation we could make is that it is close to town therefore access is easy.

    The worst bed we have ever slept in with the mattress totally wrecked - the springs could be felt very prominently through the top and it sagged unbelievably. Bedding and towels very poor and old, and the covers looked like they needed a good wash. Lots of noise from the bathroom plumbing, very noisy road and curtains too flimsy to keep out bright light in early morning.

    Difficulty in parking, room was too small for bed

    Superb

    Friendly and professional approach of the proprietors, convenience for town centre and seafront.

    It was on the main road; but thanks to effective glazing not nearly as noisy as we'd expected.

    Lovely place, great location and a very nice host! I booked a single room with private external bathroom and both were bright, clean and comfortable. Many thanks Rob for a pleasant stay in your House!

    There was nothing in this House that I didn't like. Everything was perfect.

    I booked into Carnson House as it was ideally placed for the Scillonian ferry, the bus and rail stations. The proprietor could not have been more helpful, staying up after check in time when my coach was delayed, and booking me a taxi to the ferry terminal the next morning.

    Light didn't work over the wash basin, very minor thing!

    From the word go we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We were able to come and go as we pleased. Breakfast was well cooked and set you up for the day. Both Rob and Belinda very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

    The location from the station and friendly staff

    No real complaint but surprised they didn't take the full amount of money when I did the booking I had to pay the balance when I got there which I hadn't realised.

    Excellent customer service, relaxed and friendly. Good choice of breakfast menu. Carnson house provided substantial tourist information and knowledge of the local area., Centrally situated for train and bus routes, local shops and pubs/restaurants.

    The matress protectors did make it very hot and uncomfy. Also, a proper Cornish Breakfast has hogs pudding. But apart from that was great
