Breakfast was nice. They do nice little individual coffee french press' per person. But the staff were rude when we were looking at their lovely flowers and when it came to pay he charged the baby £2.50 for eating off her mother's plate-no extra food was even made! When we contested this, we had a rude reply of "I don't... More

Cosy atmosphere in this small hotel, nice bar with the feel of being in your mammy's front room. Early breakfast catered for travellers catching flights in nearby airport, but last breakfast is at 8.45, a little early for us holiday makers. Gay friendly.

Stayed overnight whilst down for a family event in St Columb Major Owners very welcoming, great bar with Cornish Ales, lovely full English with basic but clean rooms make this an ideal stop over spot.

Get the mega 18 oz pork loin. My husband did!mega feed. They even went out their way to make me a roast dinner as I fancied one. Lol. I can say this place is a must for everyone. If my husband enjoys it then it's good as he works in the food industry

my daughter and myself spent only a night there since we had to catch a plane the day after. the place is modest but has everything you need and is quiet. small rooms but brand new huge thick towels, extremely friendly and helpful landlord. I would go back and can recommend it.

We needed accommodation close to Newquay airport as we were catching the first flight of the day and had to check in at 07:30. I booked my stay through Booking .com .I usually have tripadvisor open at the same time so I can check the hotel as I book it.This is the first time I have found the tripadvisor reports... More

This is a fantastic place to stay,comfortable,friendly and excellant food.John and Rod are the best hosts and we have stayed many times and never been disappointed.you do need a car but very near many of the famous cornish beaches.St,Mawgan is a pretty village and a short walk from the inn
