Didn't stay here but had dinner. Amazing view-make sure you book in advance for a table in the conservatory. The menu is limited which is a good thing. I don't rate places who try to do too many kinds of food. The food was good and the atmosphere relaxed.

This hotel is in the most fantastic, remote location and cannot be recommended highly enough ... seeing is believing. The owners are warm and friendly and there is a wonderful charm which has been lost in many other establishments across the UK. Give it a go!!!

Stayed here four four nights with my wife and eleven year-old son in April 2012. We booked the hotel for its location and were not disappointed, especially after reading some of the previous mixed reviews. We didn't get one of the premier rooms at the front of the hotel but instead booked a family room at the back. This was... More

Thank you for your review, I am deeply sorry to hear your stay with us was not satisfactory. We appreciate your feedback and will ensure it is utilised sufficiently. However, we do not serve pub grub, our restaurant serves rosette standard, highly acclaimed cuisine, and I'm afraid if you are not willing to pay fair prices for good food, your... More

The Housel Bay Hotel is in an absolutely stunning location overlooking the cliffs and sea and right on the SW Coast Path. We stayed at the hotel a couple of years ago and had a lovely few days so when we were planning a quick tour of West Cornwall we had no hesitation in choosing the Housel Bay hotel again.... More

We booked this hotel as part of a 2 week walk along the SW path, each leg carefully planned so that we had hotel accomodation to stay in. We were able to book this hotel on booking.com, received a confirmed notification and then had a phone call from the hotel itself to say they would not accept the booking for... More

I would firstly like to thank you for your review. I am sorry for the inconvenience that this may have caused, but frankly I think it's absurd that you think (bearing in mind we have a 3-night minimum stay policy at this time of the season) that any small Hotel business, would give up a premier room for a one-night...

We decided to have a day break on our working tour of the South-West of England. We decided we wanted to see both Land's End and Lizard Point and decided on staying at The Housel Bay Hotel, close to Lizard Point. On arrival we were upgraded to a bigger room free of charge. A nice touch and something we'd not... More
