We come here often, the food is always superb and reasonably priced, there is a good choice on the menu as well as tempting specials, the staff are always helpful and friendly, and the carvery is the best around, be sure to book on Sunday's to avoid disappointment.

Always stay here on my business trips down to Cornwall. St Austell Brewery Inns are my first choice and don't usually disappoint. The weather was good enough to enjoy a pint out by the harbourside. The evening meal was good as was the beer. Shower was excellent and the mattress was good although soft. Will book again next time I'm... More

We stayed on Saturday night for my wife's birthday and although we chose to eat out (prior booking) the room was clean and comfortable. The lady who met me on arrival on the Saturday evening (wish I knew her name , dark hair) and also was assisting on breakfast the following morning (you made my toast even when it was... More

With my wife and 20 month old, we had a great time here. Staff extremely accommodating and couldn't be more helpful. Although a pub, rooms were quiet and nicely appointed. Breakfast was great and pub in the evening was fun. Free car park which was useful. Highly recommended

We stayed in Porthlevan in Cornwall for 10 days and eat and drank at the Harbour inn a couple of times. The Sunday Carvery is excellent, for the large portion you get a huge plate, the choice of meats potatoes and veg etc are amazing, we counted 15 different items. Also the flavours were delicious, we will definitely be back... More

We stayed here recently whilst walking the SWCP and after 14 hard miles we were treated to a large, comfortable room with a great pub serving a wide variety of food. What more could you ask for after a long day on the trail. I would not hesitate to stay here again in the opportunity arose.

We have just spent four nights at the Harbour Inn, Porthleven and have returned home with very fond memories of both the inn and the village. The lounge and bar area are well furnished and the staff are very friendly, the food is excellent and the breakfast is one of the best I have tasted. We stayed in room 5... More

I have just come back from an amazing Bank Holiday weekend at the Harbour Inn, Porthleven, Cornwall. The room I had was an amazing Harbour view room, the food was as delicious as when we stayed before and the host along with their staff were extremely welcoming. I will seriously recommend a stay at this hotel to all my friends... More
