Stayed one night in this hotel in September, and have to say it was lovely. Great location to visit the Minack Theatre, etc., but room, breakfast, facilities just great. A super find. We had room 7 which was very nice, but small but a fab comfy bed and gorgeous bed linens, with a large bathroom and terrace to boot. Would... More

I was last in Mousehole 36 yrs ago on holiday with my parents, I returned last weekend and truly had a great experience thanks in part to this hotel. Every member of staff deserves a mention, all genuinely friendly and helpful. The hotel doesn't claim to be "The Ritz" and if your after that stuffiness go elsewhere. They provide comfy... More

I stayed hear for one night with my wife whilst visiting the Minack Theatre. The two things we will remember the hotel for were the outstanding service from the enthusiastic young staff and the excellent food. The rooms are comfortable but be warned that not all have baths and the ground floor rooms can be a little noisy. Our room... More

We recently stayed here for 4 nights and this could be a first rate hotel. The staff are exceptional - friendly, helpful and charming. The whole air of the place is one of relaxation, the food is excellent and the gardens superb and, of course, there are the amazing sea views and, if you have one of the higher rooms,... More

Following our previous visit we returned for another one night stay. Everything was again was near to perfect: The most comfortable rooms, the glorious view, the fantastic welcome and the great value. The food, if anything was even better and we had a superb meal with perfectly matching wines recommended by the hotel. Definitely 6 star all round!

I have known this lovely hotel for more than 50 years and it has never been as good as it is now. The staff were helpful, the food was delicious and the decor looks fresh and inviting. Although the dinner/B and B rate seemed a bit pricey, it was actually well worth it as the dinner was excellent and included... More

The Old Coastguard has a lovely situation by the sea in mousehole. We stayed there for 2 nights on a dinner bed and breakfast basis and really enjoyed it . It was a little on the pricey side but the staff were fab, the food excellent and the room comfortable. Only slight niggles were the lack of a shower in... More

Had a very relaxing couple of days here at this laid back and quirky hotel. The hotel has limited car parking, but there is a public car park next door at reasonable cost. We ate in the restaurant which was excellent and will certainly be back.

This is the third consecutive summer we have visited this place and each time things get better. The rooms have been refurbished and even the small double that we stayed in (due to the others being fully occupied) was comfortable, clean and excellent value. The food was as wonderful as ever. The service and friendliness from the staff showed that... More
