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. The weather outside was bleak but that only added to the cosiness of this hotel. We were a family of two adults two children and our family room/rooms were... More

Called into The Rising Sun on the off chance of having a very late lunch, a 5*. Hotel it's not but the staff are very friendly and the service very good, we ordered muscles / scallops for starters and they would have been enough so large are the portions, ( not a complaint) we then had fish and chips, well...

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

A lovely hotel, ideally situated in the village. Stayed in their family room which is exceedingly spacious and well equipped. Only down side is that the 'parents' room is above the kitchens so there was the drone from extractor fans/boiler(?) going all night. Too hot to close the windows, but perhaps not a problem for sound sleepers. Breakfast and dinner... More

We have just returned from a seven night break i.e. 3 nights in the Heligan suite and 4 nights in the Glendurgan suite. The Heligan suite is a twin-bedded room situated at the front of the premises with excellent views over the harbour. The room is a reasonable size with an integral sitting area and an en-suite bathroom. There is... More

This is definitely a pub to visit when it's sunny with a large garden at the front with views over the port. I can imagine that it gets very busy here in the peak of summer. Food was expensive but very tasty and offered local fish. I had the scallops which were very nicely cooked and the haddock was also... More
