Excellent hotel. Food of good quality and plentiful. Spotlessly clean.The staff were very helpful. If you come by coach you will be welcomed with a cream tea. Please remember that the table you choose to sit at then will become your regular table.Perhaps you would rather a window table.

We stayed at the Portbyhan Hotel a few weeks ago. We wanted to stay in a small fishing village in Cornwall with great views and clean, nice facilities -- and that's exactly what we got. The hotel was just recently remodeled so the entrance and foyer, cocktail bar and restaurant all seem new and modern. Delicious food and wonderful river... More
