Had excellent dinner at this Hotel on 24 September. Three adults and a teenager. 4 x Main meals and desserts. The food was most delicious and staff extremely friendly. Superb evening, can definitely recommend.

I have just returned from a 4 night break with my elderly parents. The hotel was fantastic and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Don't listen to the reviews of Room 11 as the issue with the fan was fixed before we arrived. The hotel is oldish and the furnishings and decor enhance the old charm feeling.The beds were... More

Not a bad location, fantastic views but peeling wallpaper and dirty paintwork let it down badly. Staff were great, apart from the creeper, scared my wife, very strange bloke but then again it was Cornwall.

Have just spent one night at the Porth Avallen Hotel , it has to have one of the most stunning views in the country. What a shame our £130 per night room did not match up! Room No 5 overlooks the front of the hotel with the "view to die for" but the room itself was oh so tired. Paint... More

I booked to stay at the Porth Avellen based on a friends recommendation, unfortunately had to cancel due to business changes. I called to cancel and I was then told that there is a 14 day cancellation 'policy', £50 a night, so a £200 bill to my company. So just a warning for you if you are booking here, the... More

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at this hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome immediately upon arrival. The food was excellent both at breakfast and dinner and would highly recommend. Thank you George and staff for a very enjoyable and relaxing time.

Firstly the positives. Like other reviewers, the proximity from this hotel to the Eden Project and surrounding beautiful coastal towns such as Fowey, Charlestown and Mevagissey was ideal. The views from the bar/lounge and restaurant, stunning. However, our room, no. 28, was devastatingly disappointing. I was very upset for my husband who had extended our holiday the previous week in... More

We booked a short break of three nights earlier this month reserving two specific rooms. With written confirmation of the two room numbers (which we had previously stayed in on several occasions) we found on arrival that one of the rooms had already been taken and to our great disappointment the magnificent sea views which our friends had been looking...
