Typical Cornish inn in an enviable position in one of the most famous villages in Britain. We booked a room for two nights, as well as eating once. Very friendly welcome from predominantly young staff, we were quickly shown to our room. Remember this is an inn, not a hotel, so the rooms are quite small and the public areas... More

Lovely historic pub - we had visited in a previous year but decided to eat here this year - we were not disappointed. I had Halloumi and Strawberry kebabs which was just wonderful, I'd never tasted anything like it before. We were lucky enough to sit at a table with a view across the harbour as the sun was setting.

I must admit we haven't sampled the food (yet) on this holiday but we have regularly called in for drinks. The Tribute is always fantastic. There's a cash point. Friendly staff. Historic links to the Penlee lifeboat disaster. It's a nice pub to visit

I stayed one night at The Ship, in Mousehole and I was very impressed. The room, number 5, was in the house immediately next door to the pub. Everything was smart, clean and cosy. I had a great nights sleep and my room overlooked the picture postcard habour. The ensuite shower room was sparklingly clean with plenty of thick, plush... More

We stayed here for a family event in nearby Penzance. My wife and I were impressed with the location and the style and cleanliness of the double room we had. The en-suite bathroom was clean and tidy and had good fresh towels. you acess your room via a side door, which is very useful for a late return. The breakfast... More

Lovely old pub, room had a nautical theme and looked right over Mousehole Harbour, clean and very comfy. Really friendly staff, genuine atmosphere. Well worth a visit. Breakfast was all local produce, delicious. Pub menu was nice, simple but good food. Dogs welcome.

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.
