Anne & Mike Mature couple Stayed: Sep 14

Amazing central location within walking distance of all the main beaches and town ctr

Very pleasant rooms are adequate we had a family room and for the price it was good all the requirements were there but beware the shower is very small. Read more

Likes?
The proximity to the beaches and town center and the ability to be able to park the car albeit a few streets away within walking distance for a small fee was excellent
Dislikes?
No staying in a B&B in the UK is always a nice experience because they are all so different from one town to another.

Sophie Adult(s) Stayed: Jul 14

A brilliant place to stay!

I came with a friend for a 2 night mini holiday. Mike was really welcoming and very helpful. The rooms were great for the price you pay , location excellent and a nice breakfast to get you started for the day. A great central location for going off to explore other parts of beautiful Cornwall. Read more

Likes?
Mike and Gill are very friendly and helpful. Fantastic price, great location and clean rooms.
Dislikes?
It was very hot in the room, the window had a safety latch, so we could not open it very wide. The dining room could benefit with some tables for 2 instead of just 4 so that rooms don't need to share.

Good value for money

We did not need a larger room as we were out all day so I don't comment about the size, however being on the 1st floor facing the front of the house has compromised my sleep. The room was extremely noisy even for a deep sleeper Read more

Sharon With a colleague Stayed: Jun 12

Excellent in every way possible.

We were greeted and helped to our room by the owner who could not have been more friendly. He supplied us with a map of where we could park the car. Each morning we were greeted by him at breakfast and he always had time for a chat. He made us feel like we had known him for a long time and were old friends returning.Our room was always spotless and supplies of refreshment and biscuits were there each day. Nothing was too much trouble and for this we were very grateful. Read more

Everything. The location was ideal. I didn't need to use my car to get to places. Perfect if you wanted to go into town or the nearby beaches.Not noisy at night.

Great value for money in the town centre

A friend and myself stayed for four nights. We arrived early but our room was ready and we were able to access it straight away. The proprietors couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Everywhere was very clean plus new carpets and decoration. The room had a small en suite shower and loo plus extras such as tea facilities, hairdryer and TV. There was an excellent choice for breakfast, nicely cooked. We were able to leave our bags to collect later on our last day which was great. Read more

Rather pleasant experience with very few minor shortcommings

Small but clean room, some savings were made where they shouldn't be made. Rather then microscopic safe box in wardrobe we would prefere mold-free shower curtain... Would be almost perfect if you can park somewhere closer and safer... Read more

Response

We check and clean our rooms on a daiyly basis for any major issues other wise all rooms have any renewals at the end of each seasaon where needed, matresses,beding,shower curtains,etc.With regards to the parking all the properties in Berry Road are terraced and have very little or no on site guest parking however there is ample municiple parking at £10/12 PER DAY which guests are welcomre to use, we use two off street private parking sites at £3.00 per day both just a few minuets walk away.

Likes?
close to center, very friendly staff, well organized place
Dislikes?
parking far away in strange place on the end of old service road... didin't feel safe if it wasn't a hire car I would not park my own one there... a bit too noisy traffic outside

joanne Young couple Stayed: Aug 11

cheap and cheerful in a great location

We stayed Tuesday to Saturday,I'd recommend if you want any sleep not to be in Newquay on a Friday or Saturday night. It turns into a totally different place on a weekend. The room we had at the b+b was a lovely big room,the only downfall was that it was at the front of the building which was on a busy road so the windows couldn't be left open at night,other than the traffic there was the odd rowdy surf kid roaming around at 4am,however,as I said before,this was worse at the weekend.

Neil Mature couple Stayed: Jul 11

had an enjoyable stay

spent 3 days at Pencrebar, nice clean hotel, room was a bit small but we had a single bed as well as a double in the room, the landlord did offer to remove it as we wouldn't be using it but for 3 nights we didn't think it was worth it. Room was at the front on the top floor so we didn't hear much noise during the night. one very minor comlaint was that the television was very small & in a bit of an awkward place but as we were only there for a short stay it wasn't really an issue Read more

A reasonable place to stay for a few days

We booked this place based on the reviews on trip advisor without a prior knowledge of the location or Newquay. The proprietor (Mike) is super-friendly and goes out of his way to make sure his guests are happy. The place is extremely clean and very well run. I would certainly recommend it to others but with the caveats below. Read more

Response

This is our only room with an electric shower and have had no complaints in the past. All the fridges do have an ice compartment and we do ask guests to contact us first if they have any problems with electrical equipment. We would like to thank Petros for the positve comments in this review.

Likes?
Very clean. Very friendly and helpful proprietor. Location is central with lots of restaurants, bars and shops nearby. Parking is available close to the B&B at a low daily surcharge.
Dislikes?
Main bedrooms are of adequate size, but the en suite bathrooms are tiny and the electric showers don't work particularly well. A rather noisy fridge in each room. Next to busy road so a bit noisy.

The service was friendly, the owner was helpful, and the whole place was clean and inviting. The food was of good standard. The Guest house is centrally situated close to amenities.

While we appreciate Sallys comments there is a sign on the dining room door advising guests that we are happy to serve breakfast from 8.30am or consider any reasonable requests, the servicing of breakfast has always gone smoothly unless guests turn up 20minuets or so early with out advising us of their intentions and allowing us the opportunity to serve them as they would expect. The gentleman that worked there happened to be the proprieter,shame they missed that.

Get what you pay for.

Pleasant stay overall. Very friendly and clean. Read more

Response

While we make every effort to make guests comfortable we have to alocate rooms on what we have avaiable as bookings are taken and can only appologise for our smallest room and the noisy saniflo system. We hope that Rachel will give us a future oppotunity to stay in one of our six other larger rooms.

Room was particularly small. Bed was a bit lumpy. Toilet extremely noisy.

A warm welcome at this bright and friendly B&B on Newquay front.

Mike and Gill are excellent hosts who really want you to enjoy your stay in their bright and spotless B&B. They are very friendly and helpful and cook lovely breakfasts (scrambled eggs to die for). We felt that Pencrebar was our home while we stayed there. Read more

1.Very helpful being free to come and go as we liked all week. 2.Remarkably quiet in our room, so slept very well. 3. Central location in Newquay, yet quiet. 4. Towels changed every day.

Situated in the South-West of England, Newquay is one of the UK's top holiday resorts. Cornwall lies in the Gulf Stream which flows up from the Caribbean and gives a mild climate, throughout the year. The surrounding Atlantic coastline is rugged, wave beaten, and provides some spectacular scenery. Formerly a busy port which provided transport for the county’s tin industry, Newquay has developed into a buzzing, cosmopolitan tourist resort. In recent years the popularity of Newquay has grown tremendously not only because of the natural beauty of the surrounding area, but also because of the central location and attractions it has to offer.

We do not have any facilities for those with mobility issues however we are happy to assist where needed.
