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

We celebrated our small wedding with lunch at the gurnards head. It was perfect from start to finish. Lovely setting, great food and staff brilliant. 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!

Friendly staff, beautifully appointed bedrooms and very imaginative food in the restaurant. It is interesting to reflect on the history of the place and imagine who has stayed there over the years. It is close to a particularly lovely part of the coastal footpath.

Still don't know about the colour of the hotel could be a bit OTT in mustard yellow, check google street view to see it in white as it was. Anyway it is a great place with good staff just a bit quirky. The evening meal was excellent pretty much as good as it gets in Cornwall, breakfasts ok but ,full... More

This is a very welcoming pub in a beautiful rugged position just a short walk from the cliff path, and only a few miles from St Ives. The bar area is full of character and the daytime atmosphere is enhanced by lots of candles. There is also a small snug area with two sofas and a restaurant, but you can... More

I wanted to show my Swiss girlfriend the quintessential Cornish charm and hospitality in the midst of the iconic local coastline in December 2014. I could not have picked a finer spot for our stay. Our welcome from the brooding storm outside could not have been more personable. The bedroom was newly and tastefully furnished, as was the decor throughout... More

The brightly-painted Gurnard's Head sits high above the Cornwall coast in a moorland setting, with natural beauty all around. For visitors hiking or bicycling, it is a natural stopover for lunch or tea. We had a good lunch here in mid-April, with two fish dishes and a cider. For the price, the meal was a bit meager, but quite tasty.

We stayed at the Gurnards for 5 days whilst we were in the process of moving. Me, Tina, Poppy Loveday and the dog. The food was exceptional, the staff charming and very attentive and nobody minded about the dog. Great job Charles and I would love a jar of that homemade marmalade! Highly recommended

drove past this place a couple of times and too be honest thought it looked a bit a of a dump from the outside, however reading reviews we visited on the off chance at 2:30 in the afternoon, we were told that food was ending, but managed to cram in an order. Glad we did as the food was seriously... More
