We booked the family room during the February half term. The room was newly decorated and clean and well appointed, although the tiled area around the bath could be a little better. The pricing was good, the breakfast was excellent - with plenty of choice. Dinner suited our pre-teens better that the other offerings around this beautiful seaside resort. There... More

We had lunch at the Rising Sun the day after New Year. We had a friendly welcome by the barman. Our food did not take long to arrive and it was a nicely prepared. The bar was much busier than the other establishments we had looked at before we decided on the Rising Sun. This was probably due to the... More

We've been staying at the Rising Sun every May for many years. Cornwall is such a wonderful treat after our life in busy New York! Managers Jo and Paul are aways welcoming and will do everything and anything to help. The sweet rooms are very comfortable. Bedding and towels are spotless, bathrooms perfect. My favorite room is Glendurgan. Love the... More

Lovely warm friendly establishment. I would describe it as a good old fashioned Pub where you can stay, meet the locals in the bar, snuggle up by the roaring log fire in the lounge - with your dog - and look out over a traditional fishing harbour as you eat good local food - breakfast extremely good! Fresh milk and... More

For its location alone on a sunny day, the Rising Sun takes some beating. The food is generally good and it is nice to be able to take your dog in with you. The fish and chips are always excellent but the last time that we went, we alaso had soup to start which was awful. The crab bisque was... More

the pictures of this hotel do not do it justice at all! From the moment we opened the door i knew i had made the right decision booking this little gem.

Called into The Rising Sun on the off chance of having a very late lunch, a 5*.

I visit cornwall every year. And every year I visit the Rising sun. The food is consistently brilliant whether it be the muscles or the fish and chips it is NEVER disappointing. One of my favourite places to eat. St. Mawes is gorgeous too and the view from the conservatory or outside is worth it! Just brilliant!

We arrived on a lovely warm day with the sun shining and were immediately greeted by an inviting outdoor beer garden overlooking the village and harbour, perfect for watching the world go by. Checked into the trerice room which was large with a spacious bathroom. Complimentary little bottles of fresh milk were available for your tea and coffee making facilities... More

We enjoyed our short break here very much indeed. The Rising Sun is set just back from the seafront at St Mawes and in the centre of village life. Patrons seem to be an eclectic mix of locals and tourists. There was a really nice buzz about the place. Our room was nicely furnished and cleaned to a good standard.... More
