This was our third visit. The room was very basic with no carpets and dated furniture. Dining room tables near sea view window appeared to be reserved for favoured residents. We did ask if we could sit at one of these tables on one occasion but waitress said it was not possible for short stay guests. The owners weren't very... More

Great food & hospitality. For a tranquil & restful break you can't beat it. I will never tire of gazing out to sea. Could stay here forever. We have been coming here some 40 years and never been disappointed. Always a good welcome. The views are so different at all times of the year.

From check-in to check-out, the service at Housel Bay Hotel was top rate and friendly. We opted for a sea view room which had stunning views out to sea, with the nearby lighthouse lighting up the lawn with sweeping beams of light at night. Breakfast was good, with a range of options cooked to order, served in the conservatory looking... More

We had a lovely sea view bedroom although it was small and there was nowhere to sit or store suitcases and only one single wardrobe. The bathroom was also a tight fit, one had to walk backwards towards the toilet because of the bath and shower screen. Next time we will opt for a junior suite with arm chairs to... More

This a brilliant hotel in a fantastic location. The food is excellent, the staff friendly and efficient, the proprietors friendly and helpful, the views are wonderful, and the car park is fine. Our only downside was that our room was rather small, but we will know better next time, for there will be a next. I say this even though... More

We were very disappointed by the unfriendly welcome, from the owner, on our arrival. Our room had a stunning view but was small and having a king size bed in it gave us little room to move around. The decor and furniture were quite old and shabby and definitely needed refreshing and replacing. The food was excellent and the young... More

We have visited the Hotel on many occasions now and are blown away by how relaxing and beautiful this place is every time we visit. The history, views, bedrooms and food are so above what you'd expect from a three star Hotel so you feel as if you're getting amazing value for money. The owners and staff are so friendly... More

I stayed here with a party of 9 walkers last week for three nights. The hotel is perfectly position for coastal walking. The reception, normally run by the owner, is friendly and efficient, the staff friendly but professional. The rooms are clean, and have tea/coffee making facilities. Both the bar and sitting room are attractive, as are both the dining... More

We went for a light lunch and were impressed with the place. It's set in a superb location and as a result has spectacular views of the Lizard and the coastal walk ways. The beer was good, the food freshly prepared and tasty. Certainly worth a visit, if only for the view.

With a few days of guaranteed good weather ahead of us, we took advantage of an off season offer to stay three nights for the price of two. We had often thought about staying at this hotel having first spotted it years ago during a walk along the coast path. It has to be said that the size of our... More
