We arrived at Coverack and parked our car in The Bay Hotel’s car park. My husband, our friend and I then found a table on the... More

We had another delicious dinner at the Bay Hotel restaurant during a recent stay in Coverack. We return to Coverack every year and always make a point of eating at this restaurant during our stay. The service is friendly and efficient, and the restaurant area is very pleasant and welcoming. The food is beautifully presented and always delicious. Back again... More

The room was lovely but overpriced and not as large as others in the same price bracket. The views were stunning. The standard of cleanliness was excellent. The food was good but limited choice and the wine was expensive - £25 for an average bottle. Cream teas I thought were extortionate. Staff were very friendly and you were made welcome... More

Thank you for taking time to post a review - so glad that you found the views from our hotel 'stunning.' We try our best to offer considerable choice, we change our menu every night, in which there are 4 or 5 choices in each course, we offer at least 7 specials and have Lobster fresh from the Bay. We...

We returned for our third holiday at The Bay Hotel. Yet again everything was absolutely fantastic. Gina, her family and the other staff were all so friendly and work so hard to ensure everyone's stay is as perfect as it possibly can be (and to adapt to guests' individual preferences too). The views are stunning, the food amazing and the... More

This is now our third visit to Coverack and the Bay Hotel and once again it was so worth the wait. We have raved about the Bay Hotel to anyone who'll listen and as a result my cousin and his wife decided that they'd have to have to accompany us on our latest visit. The first morning, after my normal... More

Thank you for your lovely review. It's a real treat to be able to request a lobster for a guest and know that you can watch it being caught to order straight out of the Bay, right in front of you..Zero food miles! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your third stay with us and look forward to seeing... More

This was our first overnight stop after walking from Lizard. Brilliantly positioned right on the trail and with amazing views, it is a very well maintained hotel with very friendly 'staff'. Our room at the top was quite small but immaculately clean. Dinner in the evening was very tasty (I chose scallops followed by Cornish steak & kidney pie, both... More

We first visited the Bay Hotel about 5 years ago, and was blown away by the whole experience. We vowed to return one day. This week, whilst on holiday from Kent, we got the opportunity! We only went for dinner, but were made to feel just as welcome as the guests staying there. After taking our time to review the... More

I have just returned from a very happy and comfortable stay at The Bay Hotel. I stay in many hotels (and even review them professionally from time to time) and this hotel is a gem. Great food, warm and friendly atmosphere, an exceptionally pleasant and helpful owner and perfect service. I had an awkward dietary requirement and Gina and her... More

A friend and I stayed at this hotel in early June this year. We have, in the past, stayed in several 5 star hotels but this place has exceeded them all.

From entering the hotel we were made to feel so welcome. Gina and here team couldn't do enough for us. The food was excellent and very well presented. This was mum's Birthday present. The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. We will be going there again hopefully in October.
