Excellent place to stay - management and staff have created a friendly and relaxing environment and the food is delicious. Meals are of a consistently high standard. Breakfasts were a delight with homemade muesli with fruit compote, chef's fruit platter followed by kippers and homemade bread for toast being our favourite. 'Full English' and other variations available with top quality... More

We booked a 3-night DBB package mainly to take advantage of the great location for walking this stretch of the South West Coast Path and as we had enjoyed eating here on a previous holiday. Our stay worked well as the bus to either St Ives or St Just stops outside the door. The room was smallish but that's not... More

The Gurnards Head will not disappoint those who want great food in a great pub. The accommodation is not pretentious but high quality specification including the Vi spring bed - very comfortable. Food was excellent - beer and wine tremendous

Stayed for two nights with our dog having previously stayed at their sister hotel in Wales. Room 1 was small but comfortable - no bath but an excellent modern shower, and fine for a couple of days. If staying longer I might enquire for a larger room. High points for us, apart from location (which is obviously great), were; -... More

This is a hotel review - I'll do a separate one for the restaurant. In a gorgeous setting amidst the wild Zennor area, this is a very good hotel in an isolated position. The rooms are fine - we had a family room and enough space. Clean, bathroom with a shower attachment, comfortable beds. Breakfast is really excellent - a... More

we stayed here and ate and drank in the bar, food was excellent, great range of drinks at the bar and the wonderful venue with huge garden and comfy seating. Best bit was completely dog friendly premises. Just wish it wasn't so far away :)

We stayed in February on one of their Sunday Night Sleepovers, fantastic value and I would thoroughly recommend. I have been meaning to write a review for ages as this was one of the best stays we have ever had anywhere - and even better that it was in our very own Cornwall! My husband organised this stay for a... More

I would like to say a huge THANKYOU to lovely Jade who took our booking and helped create an unforgettable celebration for us with great enthusiasm, care and attention to detail. She is a credit...

We stop off here regularly on our way home from our holiday cottage. The food never disappoints and sometimes is inspirationally different. It is always warm and welcoming to us and our dog. The Yellow Ochre paint? At least you can find it when the sea mist rolls in!
