It was one of these "let's stop @ the first pub for lunch" on the way between st Ives and Land's end. A really good decision Staff very friendly and the menu was varied enough for a family of fussy eaters. Sort of international pub food for about £15 per head with drinks. Note that lunch service stops at 14-30.

Lovely room with some nice details - lovely toiletries in the bathroom, a cafetiere for coffee and homemade biscuits. Also a cosy bar serving great food, a good wine list and helpful staff. A very enjoyable stay.

My husband and I stayed at Gurnard's Head a couple of days ago and had the BEST time. The views and walks were breathtaking and it feels lovely and remote. Our room was so cosy and all the food was delicious. We had supper at gurnard's one night and then went over to their sister restaurant the old coastguard the... More

Having dined at their sister hotel in The Old Coastguard, Mousehole last year, we made the long journey here from Falmouth to see what all the fuss is about! The arrival is absolutely stunning with beautiful sea views and being the colour the building is, you can see you are on the right road. This is much less formal and... More

My wife and I stayed here for her 50th birthday weekend in mid-August. We'd stayed before and knew what to expect. The GH is situated in a wonderfully unspoilt part of Cornwall and is about 10 mins walk away from the north Cornish coastline. If you're heading it's way and you're not sure where you're going...don't worry...you cannot miss it!... More

the kids food was the worst - dried up under seasoned breaded chicken served with a few sprigs of rocket - minuscule portion of plaice and lumpy mashed potatoe - informed waitress but no management followup - leave the kids at home

If you want great seafood in a smashing beer garden, Gurnards is the place to be. Friendly, attentive staff with a care free attitude. The most beautiful setting, out of the hustle and bustle of St Ives. Really fab menu and a great wine menu. I don't get down to Cornwall often but the Gurnards is always on my list... More

We had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Gurnard's Head. The setting is fabulous, in the middle of the moor overlooking the sea, a perfect Cornish escape. We booked the dinner bed and breakfast rate and we were astonished at the the value for money. Everything is homemade and local, from the morning toast (wonderful soda bread as well... More

Best meal we've had in Cornwall- absolutely delicious. Fresh, seasonal produce. Great 'Inbetween' menu for slightly older kids too (7 and 9). Friendly and helpful staff (service slowed down once it got busier but not too bad) We will definitely go back next summer.

We had a small double which was nicely decorated.Left the blind up and got woken by the sunrise which was just what we were hoping (room1)? Excellent location for walking. Dinner was all good although whiney children in restaurant spoilt the ambiance a bit at first. Very relaxed and informal break.
