Very nice hotel. Quite narrow lanes in and out, bit too close at times. No problem with parking ( but quieter time of year ). Hotel very pretty. We had top floor room with great views. Stairs are steep but we got used to it and this is mentioned in their description ! Had very nice meal first night in... More

We thought the staff friendly and polite. I make no apologies for not being a local, but our small party was welcomed and I would have thought everyone was welcome here. If hotels and bars only served locals, they would all close in this area. The waiting staff did appear to be receiving training and were not entirely up to... More

Been going to Port Gaverne for annual holidays for 9 years. Likewise spent lots of time eating, drinking and generally making merry at Port Gaverne Hotel..... NO MORE!! Atmosphere gone, most locals gone, prices up. Looks like new broom is sweeping everything down the hill. As for new landlady NUFF said!!

The location took our breath away when we approached this wonderful bay just north of Port Isaac. Such a friendly place, everyone at total ease and in relaxed mode which suited our mood perfectly. Our room on the first floor had views over the bay and access to the front terrace. We quickly unloaded our stuff and made our way... More

After eleven days of walking the SWCP from Minhead we pampered ourselves here at Port Gaverne. This was our most expensive nights stop but well worth it. Great dinner in the cosy dining room and real ale in the bar. Excellent kippers for breakfast to send us on our way.

It is so very sad when the change of management rips out the beating heart of a well loved local. This is exactly what has happened to the beloved Port Gaverne Hotel. The only time I have eaten here I was served an overpriced bowl of slop that masqueraded as risotto. The (new) staff are rude, abrasive or over familiar,... More

My wife and I stayed here in Sept. 2014 and we really enjoyed it. Our room had a view of the harbor and was very comfortable. The husband and wife hosts couldn't have been more hospitable. We had 1 lunch and 2 dinners at the hotel restaurant and found it excellent. Breakfast was included with the room and was varied... More

While walking the English south west coastal path we stayed at about eight different inns, etc., and they were of mixed quality. The Port Gaverne Hotel, however, was probably the best of them all, a rustic exterior, but inside, we had a a fine big room, a copious bathroom, modern appointments and a friendly staff. If only all the English... More

We live locally and use the pub on a regular basis for drinks and meals. Prior to it being sold it was easily the best pub for miles around. We went with my parents for dinner this week and had our meal ruined by poor bar staff and a rude land lady. There is a locals discount to encourage use... More

Popped in here for a coffee whilst out on a walk of the area. The girl behind the bar didnt greet us with a smile or happy face. Then the drinks were placed at opposite ends of bar and not in front of me. Asked for a menu to browse for the evening meals as was going to eat there... More
