Had a meal at this hotel and was very impressed what's little gem of a place. If you want a quiet charming evening out go here. We went for a drink and ended up having an excellent and succulent rib eye steak served by attentive staff cooked by an excellent cook. The hotel is charming and the bar gives off... More

I have stayed here before, mainly for the superb coastal view and proximity to my parents' house, and not because of the hotel's inherent qualities. So it was this Christmas too, except this time I was with my boyfriend so we booked the suite. 'Suite' to me means either apartment-sized or apartment-configurated: the Porth Avellen suite is just a normal... More

We've stayed at this hotel three times and just love it. The hotel is situated in a beautiful setting overlooking the ocean. The decor is beautiful - old world charm. The staff were exceptional. So welcoming and warm and the service given had such a personal touch. It feels like coming home to family every time we return to the... More

Stayed here for 3 days. The entire crew at the hotel were fantastic, special mention goes to Jasper, Emma and the chef(s), as the food was excellent. The suite was, needless to say, amazing with stunning views of the bay. Made my trip to Cornwall so much more enjoyable. Will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

Jasper at Hotel Porth Avallen who greeted us cannot be more helpful and welcoming after our long a drive to from London to Austell. We had an excellent meal in the hotel. The steak was done to perfection. The brisket of beef... More

Arranged formal three course meal at this hotel for around 70 persons, with no fuss at all. The meal was served plated, with no annoying additional bowls of vegetables to contend with on the table, the portions were manageable in size, neither leaving you hungry nor overstuffed. The décor was in good order and in keeping with the rest of... More

Friends booked this for us or else we would have moved on. The Owner seemed to find every request a problem. The rooms were not particularly good and two of us could not be in the bathroom at the same time with any degree of comfort. The breakfasts were meagre and it was a joy to move on to a... More

George (the owner) and staff were very friendly and couldnt do enough for us. We had one problem with the room which was resolved within 24 hours. Tea, coffee and toiletries were refreshed daily. The meals were excellent and freshly cooked. Parking at the hotel was good. The location was excellent with great views and within a few miles of... More
