The Housel Bay Hotel is really just an average place, with decent food, in an excellent location. Would recommend to a friend, but only with the above disclaimer. We liked the Cornish staff, as it felt more authentic.

Set just about as far south as you can go on the UK mainland this hotel is far removed from your usual bland offerings. The rooms are spacious and clean with all the facilities you could want and with the coastal footpath right on the doorstep the location is ideal for walkers. The food was good and the setting of...

We have just held a 90th birthday party for my father at the Housel Bay Hotel. The weather was perfect, the staff were fantastic and helped us in every way possible. Food was delicious and we really enjoyed our couple of days staying at the hotel. Thank you Housel Bay!

We returned to Housel Bay after seven years, and were relieved to find that it hasn't been completely refurbished! although there has been some alteration and decoration. The owners, in our opinion, have updated the right things and left the right things, giving a perfect blend of comfort and cleanliness with quirkiness and character. There is so much of interest...

We spent New Year's Eve at the hotel. The weather was dreadful, so we chilled in the lounge rather than taking a walk. The buffet supper was really well thought out and very tasty. There was a disco for those who were interested. At midnight there was a break in the weather and we were treated to a truly professional... More

Had two fantastic days based at housel bay hotel. Beautiful room, 19 I think, with the most breathtaking views over the garden and the bay itself. Ate in the restaurant both nights and it was very good. Staff were very friendly, chatty and professional. The hotel is not modern by any means, thats why I booked it. Why go to... More
