All the way from Australia...staying for a week in a lovely fishermans cottage in Mousehole. This visit coincided with an anniversary so we decided to book a Sunday Roast at the restaurant. Simply superb in every way..the view, the food, the service, the champagne, the company. Loved every minute of our 2 hours spent here. The dining room decor was... More

Quite possibly the best meal I have ever had. I would highly recommend a starter and small main to fully appreciate as much as possible. We were well looked after and the atmosphere is relaxed with spectacular sea views. No wonder it's fully booked and it's the type of place I would love to stay.

This is a very good hotel. We stayed in 'The Lookout' room; spacious and comfortable with a small balcony and great sea views. The garden is wonderful; relaxing and with sea views from the Terrace. Service is efficient and informal and there is a very nice feel to the whole place. Highly recommended and we'll be looking for an excuse... More

Myself and my family dropped in at the Old Coastguard Hotel before leaving the beautiful Mousehole - which is rustic and very difficult to drive through - I would recommend parking in the car park almost next to this wonderful hotel. The hotel staff were attentive, friendly and accomodating and we had a lovely cup of tea in the garden... More

A lovely place to eat or sit and have a drink overlooking the sea. We stayed in Mousehole for a week and popped up to the pleasant place directly off the rockpool side of the beach. Big squashy sofas, homely furnishing- a bit like sitting in your own sitting room but much bigger and with great views and drinks service.... More

What a magnificent place! This hotel/inn is spectacular with outstanding food, service and views. We stayed here for 8 nights on a painting workshop and absolutely loved this place. The lawn and garden leading out to the ocean are breathtaking, and the inn itself is charming. We stayed in Room #15, the Island View, and you can't get any better... More

First of all Mousehole is a very difficult place in which to drive, so be warned! This hotel has the most fabulous views, and our friend requested a window table when she made the booking, but was disappointed that the view was somewhat restricted. The staff were all very friendly, and our particular 'waitress' could not have been ore helpful.... More

Very accommodating staff providing excellent service. We took the dog who was well provided for & could be with us at mealtimes in the bar area. Room very clean & comfortable. Hotel in a great spot for exploring Mousehole (short walk) & Marazion (short drive). Food great too. Already planning a return visit.

Would recommend as the hotel, staff, service, rooms, and food are great. Parking a bit tight, but not a problem. Some nice redecorated rooms. Similar atmosphere to sister hotels. Would recommend without hesitation.

A beautiful location, with really good food, atmosphere and service, I would highly recommend a visit. Views across Mounts Bay, in the pretty little village of Mousehole. We visited just before Christmas and saw the harbour lights, beautiful.
