We booked into the Coldstreamer again hoping it would be as good as before. The evening meal was fantastic with fresh local ingredients. The reasonable prices do not reflect the quality of the food. Breakfast was equally good with witty service! Gallic humour abounds! We watched as the local fisherman, butcher, veg grower arrive with their goods first thing. Rooms... More

I found the Coldstreamer when searching for dog friendly hotels near Penzanze because as we wished to visit my Aunt and Uncle who live nearby, but also wanted to explore West Cornwall with the dog. When booking the price seemed very reasonable and at £70 for 2, (plus the dog) including breakfast and if anything it lowered my expectations. However... More

We ate here last night and the food was absolutely amazing! It's a lovely restaurant (accommodation available), just a five minute easy drive from Penzance. We found it by pure luck when looking in the AA restaurant guide. I think the pork terrine is the best I've ever tasted. We had three courses and they were exceptional! The staff were... More

to be honest I only booked this because my normal hotel is closed over the winter and I needed somewhere to stay - it was a great find. Very warm welcome, the room was really nice, complimentary drinks, large clean bathroom and comfortable bed. The only slght concern was that my bathroom window looked over another house and for the... More

Stayed just one night. Dinner was nothing short of outstanding. The kitchen offers dishes that will rival any 5 star big city restaurant, but in a comfortable country Inn atmosphere. Staff is friendly, chatty and competent. Our waiter Vincent was the star of the show. Room was comfortable, big bed, clean and tidy. We slept well and especially enjoyed Vincent's... More

Stayed for two nights as a trip to watch the rugby. The location is excellent at 2 miles out of Penzance with an easy walk. From the moment we arrived, the service was excellent. We were greeted and shown to our room straight away, explained about the breakfast time and showed us our twin room. Lovely laid out with fresh... More

We stayed at The Coldstreamer for one night for a visit to Penzance, St Micheal's Mount and the Minack Theatre. Beautiful location in the small village of Gulval. Not far away to all 3 destinations by car which was very ideal. Room was brilliantly presented and had everything we needed for a great stay. The bar snacks option is brilliant... More
