I stayed at the Porthminster Hotel this week, and can honestly say it was one of the most exquisite hotels I have ever stayed in. Everything about it was perfect, the staff couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming, the room was outstanding, fabulous sea view, perfect pillows (one of the best nights sleep I have ever had), and the...

Stayed for 1 night on a DBB rate and it was great value. Check in was very welcoming but the room we got was so noisy. I would advise to book a sea view room as we had a great view of the road and noisy lorries right next to the window. Dinner was lovely but they seemed to want... More

From the minute we arrived and were greeted by very welcoming receptionists, we were made to feel that we were special, even though we were taking up a special offer from the Daily Telegraph. Our room was fabulous, lovely and warm on a very cold weekend in January and the bed was a fourposter and sublimley comfortable. The bathroom had... More

Stayed for only one night at the Porthminster - could have easily stayed for longer. Stayed in a standard double room with a fab view of the sea. Comfortable bed/bedding, super shower, felt nice and refreshed next morning. Breakfast was very good - full english and a choice of cereals/fruits etc.. Would defo stay again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel is directly above Porthminster beach, a position which gives stunning views across the water. Watch as the waves lap against the famous Godrevy Lighthouse in the distance and feel your troubles disappear. Explore the local harbour, as you meander through the cobbled streets, and then return for dinner at the Harbour Restaurant, serving up seasonal and local food, along with stunning sea views. The Harbour Spa will provide the perfect hideaway, as you indulge in a soothing treatment and then unwind by the pool, gazing out to sea from the comfort of a deeply relaxing and luxurious Spa. ... more   less
