The Pier House is a good hotel in a superb location. Charlestown has a great range of pubs/restaurants. The hotel is on the seafront and provides beautiful views. The hotel itself is good overall and well run. Some of fittings such as the windows are old though.

We were looking for a hotel for a couple of days R&R and having stayed here previously a few times, worried that the previous high standards could not be maintained. Need not have worried from the moment of opening the front door the level of staff efficiently and friendliness was apparent. As was the high standards in the room, resturant... More

We always stay here when we visit Charlestown and we are never disappointed. The staff are friendly and the rooms (we always have a sea view) are a very decent size. We normally have room 12 which is a quiet room with lovely views of the harbour. Breakfast is served a little early for us, but it is everyones personal... More

We were visiting the Eden Centre and Heligan Gardens and picked the hotel off the Internet having never been to the St Austell area before. We were delighted to find it right beside the harbour in Charlestown just as described, arriving in the late afternoon to the sight of around 60 children in wetsuits 'tombstoning' into the harbour and generally...

I remembered a rather tired establishment many years ago, but booked because of its being by the sea and a short walk along the coastal path from my grandson. My visit started well, with a very warm welcome at reception. No sea view with single rooms of course, but the room was larger than usual for a single, with a... More

Superb location overlooking the harbour and beaches. Many rooms are being renovated and have harbour views ( these however are the more expensive ones. We stayed in a queen double room which was very nice tea and coffee in room plus TV. Food good with a Resteraunt, a bistro and a pub next door. Saturday night the pub has live... More

I stayed at this hotel 10 years ago whilst visiting Eden and Heligan. The hotel has been beautifully refurbished with fine attention to detail. The food in the restaurant was absolutely excellent! Don't eat anywhere else. The icing on the cake was the set building round the rigger ships in the dock for Poldark!

Having stayed here a couple of years ago whilst working in St. Austell I booked again as I was doing a revisit on the work. The hotel is even better that I last remembered. Their is a friendly greeting at Reception and the rooms have been improved. The atmosphere of the area is great, especially to wind down in an... More

Upgraded room on arrival. Warm, clean, spacious room with lovely view. Comfortable bed. Delicious breakfast made to order. Would gladly recommend to anyone. We didn't try the restaurant but it looked really good and was booked out anyway! Beautiful coastal surroundings. Charged 80p for a dash of lime and tap water at the bar - but that's always a shock... More

Chose this hotel as wanted to visit the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan, both close by. Booking online was simple and price good for the coastal location. Had a single room which looked as if it had only recently been renovated, very clean with a lovely em suite. Room was adequate size with plenty of storage, hair dryer... More
