I have never stayed somewhere so cold, the radiators were on but the room was freezing, so much so, that me and my husband didn't want to have a shower when we woke up as it was so cold. It also felt like the people next door were in our room as the walls are so thin I could hear... More

Gadger68, please clarify for me: did you really go through near identical experiences at around the same time at both The Cornish Arms, Pendoggett and The Cornish Arms, St Merryn? Or is it a case you're not bothered by the damage a report like yours can do to a business and being unsure which Cornish Arms you visited you felt... More

Visited the Cornish Arms with my family during February half term. Pleasantly busy and was told we would have to wait at least half an hour for a table. We took a drink at the bar but as the hour mark approached we were all getting pretty fed up. We saw people coming in after us being seated before us.... More

Most enjoyable stay and will definitely be going back. The proprietors - Felicity and Jonney were excellent hosts (very warm and friendly). The room was very nice and light and the bed very comfortable. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere in the bar was very friendly. I would highly recommend and very much look forward to going back. Sharon... More

We booked 4 rooms for a couple of nights. Wow what differing standards. Our room was fine, not outstanding but ok for the offering and price. Other rooms not so... I can totally agree about noise issues from other reviews. Our room was used by 3 couples for a really good shower. It looks like it depends on the building... More

Friendly on arrival and were helpful. The room was nice however had a tiny tv on the wall. The problem I had was that for the amount we paid for our room we were kept awake till well after 1 am on the Saturday due to the noise from the pub( constant beat of music and laughter.) I fully understand... More

Our first time in Cornwall, the main reason for going was to see Port Isaac. We were not disappointed with the location of the Hotel, 10 mins drive away from Port Isaac, also only a short drive from Rock with access to the Ferry across to Padstow. We only ate once at the Hotel but the food was excellent, Liam... More

We was looking to stay in port Isaac but this is a short drive away at pendogget. The food was excellent we payed £120 for one night for the best room in the place but felt it was severely overpriced. the room overlooked the pub smoking area so you couldn't really open the windows and although it was clean the...
