Hosts Alec, Wenna & team are extremely friendly & welcoming. Rooms are spacious, clean, new carpets & a fantastic en-suite with extra large shower. The fee of £80 per night includes breakfast (very good bacon!) & we felt represented excellent value for money. We stayed for 3 nights & visited Lands End, St Michaels Mount, Falmouth & St Ives -...

Booked through Late Rooms (or some such). When we stay there again we will book direct, as all the rate goes to the hotel. There is a car park at the rear with about a 50m walk down a few steps to the rear door. Made very welcome on arrival and throughout our stay. Pleasantly furnished room with good storage... More

Called in on a Sunday afternoon travelling home after the Falmouth Tall Ships Regatta. A smiling welcome from all the staff who were genuinely pleased to see us. Cosy, traditional pub interior. Happy to have our (well behaved for once) labrador puppy in the bar with us as we ate (water was available for dogs). Wide ranging menu. Our food... More

Really good quality food with great service. I had the homemade steak and guiness pie really nice. Emma had the chilli which looked good (she enjoyed it) and the little one had macaroni cheese which is her favourite at the minute so that went down well as well. Black Swan thank you kindly we will be back.

We stayed here recently for 3 nights and were very impressed by the lovely relaxed atmosphere here, friendly efficient service and excellent food and drink. Would definitely recommend a stay here or even just a visit for a drink.

We really enjoyed our visit to this lovely hide away in Gweek, well worth trying out. We all had the roast, massive portions, served with plenty of veg options. We also tried the puddings, again really good. Service was above standards as we was seen to promptly, we had booked our table but decided on another seating area and this... More

From the outside this looks like a gastro pub- at least the sign suggests it is. It isn't- but it is a good pub serving a great Sunday roast. We popped in after going to the seal sanctuary- such a disappointment, so we were pretty fed up and hungry! The food here was good, service friendly and the bar counter... More

New ownership has transformed this pub (formerly the gweek inn) Landlord and staff really welcoming, great atmosphere and a good range of hand pulled beers. Fresh specials available daily and a good menu, food cooked fresh to order and great quality and value. Definitely a place to visit, highly recommended.
