On arrival we were made to feel so welcome with our family of six and border terrier. We had the most amazing Sunday roast lunch ever, beautiful setting, very tasteful christmas decorations. The owners of The Old Mill House are so dedicated and accomodating they deserve to do well with all the hard work they put into their business.We very highly recommend The Old Mill House. More...

We were not disappointed it’s a great location the food delicious and not expensive!! The table is yours for the evening so you are not rushed and can chat and eat at your own pace!! Everyone is so friendly and we were allowed to try several wines before deciding on the right one!! Thank you to everyone for making our evening such a memorable one!! We will be back!! More...

This was my birthday treat, we stayed for 3 nights. Its a beautiful old building run by a wonderful family and it is more of a hotel than B&B. Situated next to a picturesque river with a lovely garden. Attention to detail is everywhere. In our very comfortable room we had all the usual facilities you would expect but then we had the addition of a box of things you might have forgotten which includes razor, toothbrush, toothpaste, even reading glasses, next to the fridge was a tiny cut glass decanter of sherry and two pretty glasses, this is refilled daily.||||In the bistro which you need to book there are also reading glasses on each table in case you have forgotten yours. We ate at Rick Stein's Seafood restaurant for my birthday, but the next night we sampled the bistro and sorry Rick but Adams food is far superior both in imagination and flavor and at a fraction of the price. We will be going again in the summer and will eat in every night. Breakfast is also in the bistro and is also superb.||||If you like churches there a beautiful 13th century church opposite with wonderful stained glass windows and painted ceilings and screens. Its kept locked but you only have to ask as the family hold a key and are happy to show you round.||||Wonderful place to stay, gets my highest recommendation. More...

The house is beautiful and the garden an impressive piece of work. It was really a pleasure to be able to spend one night here - the room was right at the entrance and we had our own private table outside and lots of privacy. The room and bathroom were very clean. I wished we had more time but we had to catch an early ferry in Picton the following day. Because we could not be at breakfast, the hosts packed us a breakfast to go which was so nice and helpful while waiting to board to ferry. Strongly recommended! More...

We always try and get a night or 2 at the Old Mill when we are in Cornwall. We always have the most peaceful sleep here. The atmosphere is always so serene and peaceful. All of the staff are super helpful. The breakfast is amazing and gets you through the whole day. And their evening meals are always the best of our whole holiday (will leave a food review on the Bistro feed x)|The rooms have a decanter of sherry for you, teas, coffees and yummy biscuits.|The shower is hot and the towels and toiletries are all good quality. If you are in the area and you want value for money, a lovely room, parking on the doorstep, amazing breakfast and gorgeous evening meal before walking upstairs to your lovely room then The Old Mill is the place for you x|We will definitely be back thanks again.

Whilst touring Cornwall we stayed for three nights. Lovely clean place to stay with amazing breakfasts. Deb and Ashley are truly amazing hosts and we spent an enjoyable few hours chatting with them over a few drinks. The dinners in the restaurant are amazing and it is not surprising that they get booked up. Great location close to Padstow. Car park is across the road. Would have no hesitation in returning if in the area. More...

Delightful small mill house hotel and restaurant. Only drawback is the parking lot is across a busy road so I cannot in good consciousness advise this hotel for families with small children or pets who could easily get away. Additionally, the qualities that make this hotel special may not lead themselves to anyone who may be claustrophobic or not careful around small turns and small rooms. On the positive side, I have never experienced a more serene and quiet sleep. This hotel recently added more rooms so they are still ironing out small kinks like heating with the new radiators but the showers had sufficient hot water and the beds were very comfortable.||Dinner and breakfast were exquisite. Everything was locally sourced and prepared fresh for each meal. Delicious. Simply delicious. I only wish the chef had made an appearance so we could complement her on her wonderful preparations.

We were in Cornwall for our anniversary and I wanted to find somewhere nice to celebrate.|I read the tripadvisor reviews and came across this establishment and was happy to book it for our meal. We were not disappointed. There was a lovely warm welcome when we arrived. The waitress (sorry do not know your name ) was really friendly and helpful and dealt with all her customers on her own in a perfect and timely fashion and we were all looked after. The setting was really warm too. It was not the weather to sit outside unfortunately but it looked nice for the warmer weather returns|We had the mackerel pate and the partridge for starters and we both had the steak.

We had a really comfortable stay at this bed and breakfast, beginning with a generous welcome at the front door through to the following morning’s very generous and delicious breakfast of quality local produce. The room was spotless and had all the facilities one might need and more. And there was even a carafe of sherry in the room to welcome us. Pretty much faultless. We really enjoyed our stay. More...

This is a beautiful little hotel with very pretty garden alongside a stream. It is situated next to a road that is quite busy during the day but that didn't affect our enjoyment because the garden is set away from the road and our room overlooked the garden. Our room was spotless, in traditional style and over looked the water mill wheel in the garden. The bed was comfortable and ensuite was clean and bright with ample toiletries although the shower is electric and therefore a little fiddly to get the temperature right. Tea, coffee & fruit infusions with biscuits & even a mini decanter of sherry (enough for two glasses) were provided. We were also given fresh milk in a glass bottle to put in the fridge for our coffee/tea (that was also handy for the pasty we hadn't eaten that day). We didn't experience any noise issues that other guests have reported so maybe the hotel wasn't as full as usual? ||||The hotel is in a small village with no pubs nearby but the hotel serves drinks downstairs and we were lucky enough to have great weather so made the most it by sitting in the swing chairs next to the stream while having drinks. The hotel is a couple of miles outside Padstow so we booked to eat at the in-house bistro (you need to book ahead as it gets full). The dinner was generally of good quality - great fish - and we enjoyed a particularly good bottle of local Cornish wine with our meal. The only downside was the pasta that had been lovingly made by hand but then overcooked in spite of us having specifically requested pasta al dente. Dessert was a delicious Affogato topped with one of the best espressos I have had (and there was enough to both pour over the dessert and drink). Breakfast was outstanding! A buffet of varied fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt, toast and conserves (homemade locally) and an incredible cooked breakfast menu that you select the night before (but we were informed that you could let them know the following morning if you have changed your mind). We chose the eggs florentine and eggs royale - each came with a mini pot of Hollandaise sauce that was light as a feather. ||||The owners have only been here for 5 years and were completely new to the business so have done a terrific job in turning this little hotel around. Both they and their staff are fantastic: very friendly and helpful. Even their rescue dog - a handsome, deep russet labrador - lent charm to the place as he wandered around the garden wagging his big, powerful tail. More...

We spent 4 nights here in Sept '19. It is a lovely place - historic, beautifully decorated, with great attention to detail. Our room overlooked the beautiful garden and waterwheel, and there is a lovely stream running by. It is a family run operation, and it shows, as they really care about their customers. The attention to detail is great - even to having a small decanter of sherry in the room each day. The food is very good, and the breakfast has a great range of choices. The omelettes are divine - thanks Ashley. They have a lovely labrador, Henry, who like a fuss (and a dog treat) More...
