  • "The property definitely would benefit from a handrail being fitted in the shower."

    Both my wife had difficulty getting in and out of the bath. ( it’s an age thing).The property was clean and well kept even towels supplied even though the brochure said no towels. Overall a very enjoyable break and would not hesitate to book again in the future. The caretaker came out on the Sunday as we couldn’t get the shower to work and it turned out a fuse had blown under the stairs. Overall 5 Stars

  • "Stayed at Quarrymans many times but first time at Primrose."

    Cottage was clean and well maintained and equipped. Would be great if the complex as a whole could somehow incorporate at bike store as it's so close to the Camel Trail. Location is an ideal base to explore North Cornwall. The Pub on site does fantastic food and shops are a 10 minute walk .

  • "This Was our Second visit to primrose cottage as we stayed last year & hence we booked again for this year and for longer."

    How ever this year was extremely disappointing it was very clear that it hadn't been cleaned properly in a long time pots and pans were dirty so had to wash up soon as we arrived the bathroom wasn't clean the toilet overflow wouldn't stop flushing, Had to fix that. The shower raiser rail was broken and shower kept going from warm to scolding hot to freezing cold & there for not useable as was dangerous. The drains are clearly blocked as well as it kept backing up to the bath. we went on holiday to relax after a stressful first half of the year with one of us under going cancer treatment & didn't need added stress of cleaning the accommodation on arrival when we pay a surcharge of £100 for this to be done we are very disappointed after the amount of money its cost to stay & are considering looking into the complaints department its a shame as its a lovely little cottage but does need updating sadly netflix wouldn't work so nothing to watch in the evenings & there a pears to be an issue with bees in the property & we are very reluctant to book here again now. carl & Sarah july 2023

    Very comfortable. The wi-fi is very slow by today's standards but that didn't spoil our stay.

  • "Excellent cottage in a great location, but let down by the double bed, which would be considered as a single in most of the hotels in the US."

    My wife and I ended up having to sleep in separate bedroom after a few nights with no sleep. If it wasn't for the bed, we would come back again.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have never heard this before, it is a standard double bed. We do hope we can welcome you again. Property Owner

    Perfect for what we wanted. My only criticism was there was alot of ants in the kitchen on the fridge side. But other than that an amazing stay and excellent place to stay for seeing Cornwall

  • "Crockery needs replacing as quite a few of the plates and bowls had chips in them at the edges."

    Also cottage for 4 but only 2 small side plates. One of the saucepans had not been cleaned properly. Bathroom door had no workable lock on. Otherwise the cottage was comfortable.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have discussed these issues with the owner and the bathroom door will have a lock put on and a new set of crockery will be purchased. This will also be checked more thoroughly on changeover to avoid this happening in the future. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Property Owner

  • "Upstairs bedroom door dint shut bathroom door didnt lock."

    Bedlinen on single beds and spare dirty with crust around fasnings. Sofa smelt nasty, carpets in bedroom dirty. Dated furnishings poor layout in kitchen making cooking difficult. Location good, local pub welcoming, cottage needs updating and deep clean

    Thank you for your feedback and for bringing to our attention the broken bathroom lock which will be looked at and replaced. With regard to the bedlinen fastings, this is a result of tumble drying over time. We will shortly be replacing all the linen, along with new beds and mattresses. Our property normally receives positive feedback regarding cleanliness and so we are surprised by your comments. Our housekeeper did check the property and was not able to find any unpleasant smell. However, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed the location and local pub. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location."

    Good food and friendly staff at the adjacent pub, the Quarryman. Would have liked a grab handle in the bathroom to get out of the bath/shower as it was a bit slippy, even with the bath mat, but it didn't affect our holiday. We would book to stay here again.

  • "It was a pleasure to stay in Primrose Cottage."

    It felt like we were part of a community. The fact that it was attached to The Quarryman was an added bonus as the food was fabulous.Ok, so the shower was not what we are used to but we accepted that if you stay in an old cottage you accept that things will not be high tech. We loved the atmosphere of the cottages and everyone we met involved with either the cottage or the Inn were really helpful and friendly. We wouldn’t hesitate to book this again in the future.

    The cottage was a great place to stay and use as a base to explore Cornwall. The local pub and super market where very good, the pubs food was excellent. All of the places we wanted to visit where within easy reach from the cottage, you could actually see Padstow from the bedroom window.

  • "Very comfortable and well appointed cottage in terrific location."

    Very close to Pub which served excellent meals. Could do with a bit of updating.Needs a fridge freezer as the ice box in the present fridge is a bit small and meant that we either had to go daily to the local supermarket or eat out, which was no problem in view of the excellent pub close by. On the whole a very good location and accommodation, would recommend it.

    Close to Wadebridge and easy to get to tourist spots like Padstow, Port Isaac and Tintagel. The Camel Trail was just a walk down a country lane. Primrose Cottage was small but very relaxing and incredibly quiet. A lovely place to return to after a day out.
