10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We enjoyed staying in the modern facilities and liked the garden setting. The meals were delicious.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We visited St Austell for a friends family party and fancied staying somewhere different. On-line we found The Waterwheel for the same sort of money as as a well known motel chain and thought what the heck we'll give it a go! We are so pleased we did, what a wonderful find, Mark and Francesca couldn't of made us more welcome, the location is idedilic and the food was heavenly (albeit breakfast was totally sinful!) The Waterwheel is packed with carachter and has retained much of its old world charm. Needless to say we enjoyed our find and we will definately be returning, thank you Mark and Francesca for a wonderful weekend.
Cons:As stated above, what's not to like.
