Trip Advisor review

This is the most recent review we have received.  I do not usually post such reviews, and will not frequently do so, but was so thrilled by this, that, well, here it is:

1 review
Why the wow factor? . 
Wow 1 - the aroma of our evening meal cooking when we arrived.
Wow 2. - the view from our room (room 2) over the valley towards Trebarwith Strand and out to sea.
Wow 3 - the food - from the first mouthful of mushroom, walnut and puy lentil pate on our first night to the last speck of chocolate pot on our last night we enjoyed every morsel.
Wow 4 - the loaf of freshly baked bread each morning.
Wow 5 - breakfast - home made muesli, the "Full Michael" and a selection of interesting preserves.
What can we say that hasn't already been said? - you can get a mobile phone signal! We had only just arrived when our Vodaphone started ringing. 
We have passed Michael House a number of times over the years when going to Tintagel so we thought we would book a short break for ourselves and dogs to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We must echo the experiences of other reviewers. We received a warm welcome from Vanessa and Simon. Our room was very spacious with a massive bathroom. We were offered dog towels if we needed them - luckily we didn't. Vanessa's cooking is fantastic, we would recommend anyone staying B & B to try an evening meal. She is so passionate about her cooking and readily shared recipes. We stocked up with lemon and ginger marmalade, from the local farm shop, on our way home.
There is one thing that is average about Michael House - the cost. This makes it excellent value for money,
Vanessa and Simon - thank you for making our anniversary so memorable.
Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 at the front have the fabulous views out to sea.

We still have some availability over Easter.  Hope to see you.  The weather forecast is looking good.

This is a 'full Michael', tomatoes, sausage, mushrooms, beans, pancakes, scrambled tofu, potato rosti, or any of the above!
