Nice big rooms and clean. We were initially a little unsure about going through the bar and up to our rooms but actually it was okay. At night I could hear music from my room but I'm not sure where it was coming from - might have been the pub but it was difficult to tell. In the evening we... More

We stopped at this Pub “by accident” on our tour of Cornwall. What a place and what a staff. We were laughing from we entered the bar, until we left late in the evening. The bartender was really funny and it was apparent that many of the locals played along. The food was great and they had a wide range... More

This place looks like an old country pub but when you sit down to eat you feel like you're eating at a high end restaurant! The food here is absolutely stunning and the service is actually even better. The French waiter in particular makes the whole even so special!!!

Friendly local with a nice atmosphere in the evening. Good size room, decent shower and the breakfast was very nice. Good value for money would recommend to friends and family. Would happily come back if ever passing through the area again in future.

We stayed here two nights and then one night either side of a five-day trip to the Isles of Scilly. The warmth of our welcome and the comfortable, well-equipped bedroom were a delight.. The pub is a proper local with an array of real ales and cider and an imaginative and sensibly-priced menu. Try the brisket with mash and kale,... More

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
