Much of what has been written about the Old Coastguard - both good and bad resonates with us. The front of house service is both friendly and professional. The food is good. The wine list is not run of the mill, which for us was great. The public areas were clean and we enjoyed the shabby chic feel to the... More

Thank you for your comments and we're glad you had a broadly good stay. In response to your thoughts about investment, we'd agree almost to the letter. That is why most of our early investment has gone to the invisible but critical areas of plumbing, electrics and other infrastructure, which gives us the long term basis to make a success... More

This is our second visit since the acquisition in 2011, albeit we advanced our holiday date by 7 days. We arrived, the staff are brilliant, both Front of House ( Alice is Great) restaurant too many to mention all attentive, the housekeepers 2 sisters are brilliant. The rooms are very much mix and match from a furniture perspective, botched ceiling... More

This is a long review to which our full response would test the patience of readers. We have though sent a long email to the guests which I hope addresses all of their points. In some areas we've felt we needed to respond in strong terms. In fact, we felt so strongly about the content of their review that we... More

Stayed one night to celebrate my husbands birthday. Stunning views from our bedroom (No. 15). A giant comfy bed with lots of pillows and a bathroom you could hold a party in (including whirlpool bath). Lovely, well kept garden leadin down to the sea and a path into the village and harbour. Staff were cheerful and helpful - even with... More

We booked this hotel as part of a bigger trip, this one being the little luxury in between staying at some less expensive places. It is definitely worth the money. It doesn't look much from the outside on first impressions, but this is deceptive! We stayed in Room 3 (the 4 poster bed). We immediately felt at home and cosy... More

booked into Mousehole for 3 nights on a bank holiday weekend. The staff were wonderful and very helpful for everything we wanted to do and all the questions we had. We had room #10 which is right above the restaurant and bar and that is the only reason they didn't get a 5 rating because we had a solid buzz... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of the Sleepover deal. Cannot fault the location or the rooms, or staff, but, we were very disappointed at the lack of fresh local fish and seafood on the menu. This place is about 2 miles from Newlyn, a big fishing port. I asked if I could have my lemon sole on... More

First of all, if its a sea view you want, you will not get a better one in this neck of the woods, and together with the gorgeous garden this location is really special. The staff were excellent too and I can see why the service ratings are so high on this property. However, we were disappointed as we were... More

Excellent little cosy hotel with seaview in a very lovely setting. We have 3 course meal included in our 2 night stay with family and were very happy with the whole setting, staff service, accomodation and all. No complaints.

Stayed one night in room 2 on our way out to Scilly and was so impressed with the level of service and ambience of this hotel we will definitely return. Dinner was delicious. The room was very comfortable and the towels and bed linen high quality but what makes this hotel very special are the people. All the staff were... More
