This was our second trip to the Old Coastguard and somehow it was even better than the last time. The winter escape dinner, bed and breakfast deal is unbelievably good value for money, and that combined with a less crowded wintery Cornwall is a winner for us. The food was delicious and the room was lovely. The whole place has... More

We wanted a three day break and chose The Old Coastguard Hotel winter deal. Easy to find and park (it's just outside the very narrow centre of Mousehole) A lovely welcome on arrival and we found ourselves in a very nice room with a wetroom and an awesome view across the sea. Dinner was included in the winter deal and... More

This was not my first visit and nor will it be our last. We arrived early and took the cliff path out towards Lamorna cove. We made good time so headed on to Tater-Du lighthouse and then made our way back via Lamorna. Sadly the pub was shut but a great walk if staying at the OCG. We checked in... More

Hotel room clean, compact, and comfortable for just the odd night or two. Shower a bit problematic. Visited for the food really and this was the disappointment as last time the menu and food was excellent, hence we came back expecting there to be some nice interesting fish dishes as next to one of the largest fishing harbours in the...

We have been here some years ago and this recent visit was just as good. With often poor Cornish weather tv in the bedrooms would be a great bonus if you are not a book worm. Quality of food at dinner can vary depending on which chef is on that night so just hope that you have the top man... More

A journey from Paddington to Penzance on The Cornish Riviera Express led to this wonderful overnight stay. An informative taxi driver took us along the coast to Mousehole and to the door of the Cornish haven that is the Old Coastguard Hotel. The welcoming staff, comfortable room - the joy of no TV but a digital Roberts Radio and blazing... More

Once again we were tempted to stay at the Coastguard.....it never disappoints! very relaxed and child friendly great food and very helpful and friendly staff. It was halloween and a gang of children and parents mixed happily in the restaurant....no one got uptight and everyone enjoyed the evening. We love the rooms and hot water which has been an issue...

Eat well—Sleep well—Drink well at the Old Coastgurad is exactly what you get at the Mousehole outpost of Eatdrinksleep's empire and how satisfying is their simple offering. Not only did we eat drink and sleep well, we also laughed, relaxed and regenerated at this fabulously laid back West Cornwall bolt hole in the most wonderfully romantic Cornish fishing port of...

We went with relatives who live locally. The food was very good apart from poor roast beef which was very thinly cooked and not much of it. The roast chicken and fish dishes were excellent. Bread & butter pudding wonderful!

We stayed for a night at the end of August and loved it. Our room was ample and relaxing and the views from the balcony were stunning, right across Mount's Bay. The food is marvellous and in general this is a really relaxing spot to enjoy
