Good Hotel Guide Review

An ideal retreat for foodies, these sybaritic B&B suites created by chef Paul Ainsworth and his wife are hidden in a back street of Padstow’s old town. Three of Paul’s ventures – including the Michelin-starred Paul Ainsworth at No.6 – are in Padstow and nearby Rock. The spacious suites dazzle with rich fabrics and furniture as well as witty foodie hints – perhaps a candy-striped wallpaper or bedside tables made out of flour bins. Indulgent touches include a gold-and-white double-ended bath in one, and white French-style bed in another. A kitchen pantry, with bar and home-made treats, is run on an honesty basis and breakfast arrives in a hamper. For evening dining you can try one of the sister companies: The Mariners pub in Rock offers British classics while Caffè Rojano in Padstow has a casual menu of favourites such as pizza or pork chops (there's also a vegetarian/vegan menu). No.6 is the creative option with a limited-choice four-course menu of dishes such as 'all of the pigeon' with salted plum and Sichuan pink pepper sauce, or cod with scallop blanquette. Borrow a pair of the B&B’s wellingtons to work up an appetite.

Comments about Padstow Townhouse

What will remain with us more than anything is that outstanding level of service and complete loyalty to Paul Ainsworth and his family. A genuine warm welcome: a lift into town for our lunch booking at the Seafood Restaurant. What blew us away was the personalisation of turndown notes. An outstanding house team led by Lucinda. The pantry was like a deluxe tuckshop. Our suite was comfortable and in excellent condition, despite no claims for Honeycomb to have had a view, you could see the estuary quite clearly. - Mr Kevin and Mrs Victoria Seymour - March 2018
