We had heard about the Coldstreamer from friends and decided to stay when delayed in our travel. It is a short way off the main A30, down a winding lane in the village of Gulval. It was a last minute booking and at a quiet time of the year, so I got a good deal on the room with breakfast,... More

The Coldstreamer is a great place to stay. It's near Penzance, but it's actual location at Gulval makes it seem like it is in a small English village off the beaten track. Meals are excellent - we chose from the tapas menu (there were more substantial options available too) and were impressed with the quality and originality of the food.... More

Four of us booked for dinner last Friday evening, 2 locals and myself and another visiting our friends in Penzance. At first I had reservations as the last time I ate here, a couple of years previously, it was not good. I need not have had any reservations, as this time the food was excellent. We skipped starters and went... More

We went with friends who live locally to this great pub/inn. We had delicious smoked prawns with mayonnaise. Freshly baked Hake with cabbage mash and thinly sliced lamb's liver and mash. One of us had a haloumi burger which was very good. Affogato and creme brulee to finish. All the food was good, but our visit was made so entertaining... More

We have eaten here a few times and would definitely go back - all our meals have been very tasty, especially the fish dishes. The service is friendly and there is a good atmosphere as it is also a pub. It is certainly above average and has a chef who maintains consistently high standards.

We made a last minute booking here as we couldn't face a long journey after arriving back from the Isles of Scilly. It proved to be an excellent choice and fantastic value for money. Over the years we have stayed in either a gastro-pub or a hotel near to Penzance, both of which are lovely but twice the price of... More

Stayed for one night & had dinner & breakfast both of which were excellent. The staff were great, helpful & amusing & the room was comfortable enough. The shower was very difficult to regulate & most of the time was far too hot, although someone came to have a go at showing us how to reset it, it was still... More

We stayed in room 3 which was lovely and spacious with original sash windows to let in light and air. The decor was pleasant with a nice clean fresh feel and nice large towels. The bathroom was large with a large and powerful shower, the only odd thing about the bathroom was the clear window panes so you have to... More
