Had a great evening celebrating New Year. 7 of us (and several other groups of people) spent the evening eating - the food was varied & interesting, and dancing. The DJ, Matthew Shephard, was excellent - good records and a lovely voice in the cabaret. He also held the evening together with a fun quiz. A good time was had... More

We had booked Christmas Day lunch as a treat to ourselves. We arrived on time but had to wait 20 minutes before being seated, initially in a room by ourselves but soon other people joined at various table. The meal itself was fine, though the soup not piping hot and the beef dish was a bit chewy. Considering the high... More

The Porth Avallen hotel isn't the most stylish hotel we have stayed in, but for comfort, friendliness and lovely food it takes some beating! With really comfortable seats in our room, it was even nice watching the rain beat on the windows! The staff couldn't do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble.

On arrival we were greeted by the manager telling us we'd parked wrongly. After that we chose a room on a corner, super view and very comfortable. We took time to visit Charleston just down the road, then after a drink at the bar ordered dinner. The choice was excellent, and when it arrived it was delicious and well presented.... More

Our room was large and had a nice side view of the harbour but was looking tired with wallpaper falling off the wall under the window. The shower lacked water pressure but was hot. Good supply of tea and coffee in the room and plenty of clothes storage. Lighting very dark as low output low energy bulbs fitted. Breakfast excellent... More

Stayed here for 6 nights at the start of the really hot summer period in early July, and was very impressed. The Porth Avallen is a small, family run hotel with a sea view to die for. Facing the south Cornwall coast, it has views along the headlands and bays for miles in both directions. it's located in a private... More

We booked at the last minute for 2 rooms with my young Grandchildren. The best thing about this hotel is its location. I have personally stayed in many 3 star hotels and would rate this as the worst. My room No 11 is very noisy all night with sounds of multiple washings machines in action. The room was very very... More
