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

Great little hotel/pub that offers tremendous value winter breaks. Simple but comfortable - not pretentious. More a pub with rooms than classic hotel. Enthusiastic young staff who know what they are doing. Good food despite what other reviewers say. Chance to eat at the sister hotel/pub 20 mins away Gurnards Head - this is also very good.Fantastic food. Great bar... More

We have just returned from a pleasant short break at OCH. Whilst not perfect, overall it was enjoyable. The food at both dinner and breakfast was, with 1 or 2 exceptions very good and well presented . The service was friendly and generally efficient. A problem with the lump of burnt fatty meat presented to my wife purporting to be... More
