About The Chapel Guest House

The Chapel is a b&b guesthouse that, as the name suggests, is a converted 19th-century Bible Christian Chapel. The centre of St. Austell is just over three miles away.

Guests can choose from five pretty en-suite rooms, some of which showcase the chapel’s architectural features. Standard mod cons include a television, tea/coffee making facilities and an alarm clock. Wi-Fi is also available.

The fridge, located on the upstairs landing, is ideal for keeping snacks and drinks cool and The Chapel’s secluded garden offers a peaceful place to unwind after a busy day’s sightseeing.

A delicious complimentary breakfast is provided – scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, a Full Cornish Breakfast as well as lighter options such as cereals and fresh fruit are available.

Nature-lovers will enjoy visiting the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan – both are only a short drive away and feature a stunning range of trees and flowers.

Positive Reviews

Comfortable and cosy accommodation

Guests report that they felt very comfortable while staying here. The rooms are nicely decorated and are kept very clean. The beds are comfortable and guests appreciate the mod cons and the hospitality tray with complimentary biscuits and beverages.

Excellent breakfast spread

If you enjoy a hearty breakfast then you'll love The Chapel. The complimentary breakfast is well-cooked, tasty and generous in quantity. There's plenty of choice, ranging from a traditional fry-up to more healthy options such as cereal and fruit.

Friendly hosts

The owners of The Chapel receive praise for their professional and friendly manner. They make guests feel very welcome and are always on hand to offer help and assistance in any way they can.

Negative Reviews

Unpopular house rules

If you choose to stay at The Chapel, it's worth acquainting yourself with the house rules before you arrive. The main rules are that guests vacate their rooms between the hours of 11.00 and 16.00 and that food isn't consumed in the rooms. A few guests found it inconvenient not having access to their rooms during this time and felt that the owners could be more flexible. However, other guests were happy to follow these rules.

Location a little isolated

The Chapel is located a few miles from the centre of St. Austell and, according to feedback, there isn't much to do within walking distance of the guesthouse. This isn't a problem for guests with a car but if you are planning to rely on public transport then it may be an issue.
