We booked to stay here the day after New Year. Mousehole was very busy (the festive lightshow apparently), which meant the hotel car park was almost full when we arrived late afternoon. As a result, we had to park our very modest hire car in a less optimal spot near the exit/entrance but got assurances from reception that it would... More

We had one night here in April 2015, sleeping in room 11. It didn't have a balcony but had a view of St Michaels Mount and the sea. The room was very comfortable with a shower. The hotel is incredibly dog and child friendly with plenty of family games and cards. The dinner was excellent and efficiently served. There is... More

We have visited the Old Coastguard twice and both times were excellent. We brought our dog and he was treated like a king by all the staff. A real dog-friendly hotel! The rooms are lovely, and the food (breakfast & dinner) is delicious. Looking forward to returning for our third visit. Can also speak highly of their sister pub, The... More

Staff were really lovely, especially the lady who greeted us and those waiting at meal times. Nothing was too much for them. Really delicious food, well presented and good choice. Beds and linens lovely. Downside is if you want a good night's sleep don't choose Room 14 as it is next the kitchen extraction flue which goes all night. Great... More

The staff, bar, food, bedroom and ambience were all great. Been before and can't wait to go back again. A great location for walking, local NT properties and 'bit of culture' at the Minack Theatre. Walk out of the garden and you are on the Coastal Walk. Terrific.

Spent the night here in early March as part of a trip to explore my wife's Cornish roots. The whole experience was top shelf...but never stuffy...Front desk staff (Leigh) was very helpful during the reservation process and greeted us personally when we arrived. The room was fantastic with old comforts provided with modern amenities. Dinner was amazing and when I... More

This hotel has such a relaxed atmosphere which belies the standard and quality of the hard working staff. Nothing is too much trouble and the food is of the very highest standard. The bar/relaxing area faces across a lovely 'tropical' garden to the sea and families and dogs were all welcomed. Our room had a lovely view out to sea... More

We stayed for 3 nights, the service and general ambience was really good. Child friendly, dog friendly, excellent food, good choice of wine, prices very reasonable Mousehole is charming, this time of year also quiet, maybe not so in high season. Looking forward to returning.

Stayed here with family on Friday night to celebrate our Mum's 60th Birthday. Our party of 7 (plus 2 dogs!) had the dinner, bed and breakfast rate and all of us thoroughly enjoyed both our food and stay. The staff are friendly and relaxed, yet attentive and so helpful. Our evening meal was superb as was breakfast the next morning.... More

We have stayed here twice now and will return again and again. We love the balance between well run, amazing food and professionalism and such a relaxed atmosphere to go with it. If your a dog person and enjoy spending time with your fluffy friends then this is a great place. But you have got a dog free area if... More
