February get away for a couple of days, very nice hotel, stunning location, views from our Junior Suite were incredible! Lovely helpful staff, very quite time of year, food good but very little variation in the menu, breakfast good long time since I've only had one slice of bacon served on a 'full English'. Be aware this hotel is located... More

Great location , food was okay and lovely service . Came here on a walk through the gorgeous cliffs of the lizard and stopped off for a bite to eat , the lay out is lovely and we went for the sandwiches so can't really rate the food but all in all a nice stop off for our walk

Location is FABULOUS, just round the corner from Lizard Point, most southerly point in Britain. The room -21 was small and the window was small...but it had a lovely sea view. All the amenities you expect and decor was good. The ensuite was tiny..see photo. It took time to get hot water from the shower but fine once it got... More

The staff at Housel Bay Hotel is truly friendly and helpful. I miss the Mr. Reception and his friend smile, I miss the great cook in the kitchen, and i miss my driver who fetch me to Penzance Station - Nutty Noah!! The restaurant provided excellent food in the evening and the breakfasts were also of a high standard. The... More

Fantastic location. Lovely view from the rooms. A nice 3 for 2 offer for Autumn & winter including dinner. Food at the restaurant was very tasty with big portions. Right on the coastal path for those that enjoy walking. All in all a very enjoyable experience and we will be sure to return some day

Had some amazing food and wine at The Housel Bay last night. The fish dishes, cod and plaice were so tasty and the dessert was scrummy!. The atmosphere and service was excellent and we will definitely be returning soon. Thank you to everyone for making our special evening magical

We were passing walkers, popping in for lunch. Excellent quality food, excellent service, value for money. Recommend as a must try. Certainly will be visiting again. Only criticism was the alcoholic drinks were slightly expensive.

We first came across this hotel accidentally while exploring the Lizard Peninsula several years ago, however we still had our much loved dog at that time and the Housel Bay Hotel has a no dogs policy. We therefore promised ourselves that one day we would return and spend a few days at this wonderfully located hotel. We had booked a... More

A stunning location atop a cliff right down near the Lizard lighthouse. The staff were very attentive. The walls in the restaurant and public areas are covered with an eclectic mix of photos, posters and newspapers, which adds to the quirky charm. Loses a point because the rooms are a bit small and our bed needed the sheets changed (some... More
