Great surprise with room, overlooking the harbour. Great breakfast. Superb location and Mousehole is lovely location with shops and sights. We had a lovely dinner in The Ship Inn another evening, again excellent, big portions! Lovely cycle route to St Michaels Mount which we did.

Mousehole is an old fishing village and the Ship Inn is certainly in a prime location. That said driving in and out of Mousehole is a challenge so we spent one day car free and took the little bus to Penzance and then caught another to Marazion to go to St Michaels Mount, great day out. Actually with the luxury... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. It's a great location overlooking the harbour and Mousehole has a range of interesting shops and sights. Pub is friendly, with good St Austell beer and good value food. On Sunday night we were treated to an impromptu performance by the Mouselhole male voice choir which was amazing. Room was clean and spacious. We had... More

Mousehole is a quaint little town on the waters edge not far from Penzance. We enjoyed our 1 night stay at the ship inn. We would have liked to stay another night. The service was good. The meals at the restaurant and breakfast were also good. The rooms have been recently renovated and accommodate you with everything you need. The... More

Lovely hotel on the harbour. Restaurant area small but adequate. The service and meals were tops! Can recommend the mussels, the fish pie and the fresh catch of the day. Big servings too. Value for money! Beers lovely and cold which goes down a treat on a hot summers day.

This lovely old pub is set next to one of the most beautiful little harbours in England. The rooms are comfortable and the food good and they're very friendly and amenable. They also like dogs and are happy for your pooch to share your room.

I love this place as the building alone tells a story of days gone by and you can almost imagine smugglers and pirates drinking here! The food is great and the staff are lovely but what I love the most, apart from the building itself, is the atmosphere of relaxed decadence. I first discovered this many years ago as a... More

We booked into the ship one day while visiting Mousehole, it is in a lovely location and looked like a nice traditional pub. The food in the restaurant was fantastic, i had the fish pie and can honestly say it was the best fish pie I have ever had! The staff were lovely and the service was fantastic, not to... More

10 of us came for a meal here whilst in Cornwall on holiday in June 2015 and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent, really friendly staff and we were served very quickly, did not have to wait long for food at all despite the size of our party. The food was fantastic, big portions, reasonably priced and... More
