Mevagissey is a beautiful, traditional almost picture postcard Cornish Fishing Village. The Wheelhouse is located, as the address suggests, on the West Wharf of this still functioning harbour. The accommodation is located up a flight of stairs alongside the main Wheelhouse Inn building. We stayed for 4 nights in room 1 whilst being immaculately clean was a little on the... More

Firstly a warning - the website is out of date and the information brochure in the room is also out of date therefore if you wish for further information before booking I suggest you telephone in advance. Having undertaken an 8 hour drive to get to Mevagissey it was difficult to predict with any accuracy an arrival time. Having arrived... More

stayed overnight just before Christmas. It's a little gem. Our room was overlooking the bay- the room was clean but very small and the shower room was even smaller - your knees did touch the wall as you say on the throne😊 but saying all that the place is lovely. Breakfast was plentiful and freshly cooked to order. There is... More

stayed in room 1 for 3 nights and loved it. Room was small but very clean and overlooked the harbour. Breakfast was served at 9am in the restaurant, food was excellent and staff very friendly. Excellent value for money.

This restaurant is situated right in the heart of the harbour and was a really lovely location for a belated Anniversary meal. I'm not a great fan of fish but the wife is so I was pleasantly surprised. The food was nicely presented and tasted really good - nice and fresh. This restaurant is definitely about quality rather than quantity.... More

Previously stayed in April and liked it so much we returned. Was offered room 3 when booking and as I had read the reviews on here knew that this was rated the best room. Previously stayed in room 1 and loved it. V v small but cosy and view hits you. Room 3 is double the size of room 1... More

We stayed for 3 nights in room 2. The Wheelhouse is in a fantastic location right on the picturesque harbour. Not too far to walk from long stay car park though can park out side for a few hours. It's mentioned elsewhere the bathroom is bijou and compact but the amazing views more than made up for this! Staff were... More

My brother and I each had a room for two nights in late September. The location is just lovely, with views across the harbour. The rooms were somewhat basic, but had all the necessities and were very clean. Linens on the bed fresh and spotless. The en suite bathrooms were tiny, tiny! Clean and functional, but large people should take... More

We ate here for lunch on a lovely sunny day. We didn`t want anything too big so opted for the sandwiches. We wanted brown bread but was told that they had ran out and the same applied to the prawns. So we decided on the tuna which arrived with a side portion of salad and crisps. They were very nice... More

I regularly visit this little restaurant and have not had a bad meal yet. The fish is always very fresh and tasty, well it should be as it is landed right outside. Tucked up the far end of Mevagissey it has lovely views across the harbour. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and the staff are always willing to help with anything,
