A very nice well run hotel which has recently undergone some refurbishment. Food was very good both breakfast and evening meals. Rooms were spotless All the staff were excellent very helpful. Not all the rooms have a sea view some including mine overlooked a rather scruffy car park. One very positive note is the fact that they have the car... More

Popped in here for a meal, no complaints as service and quality was excellent. Located right by the quaint Harbour, its an idilic place to relax for a quiet meal or just a refreshing drink. Though we visited in the off season, we would imagine that the Harbour Inn would be a very busy popular location for visitors in the... More

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

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

Stayed at the Harbour Inn for three nights at the beginning of September, fortunately catching the superb weather. Right on the quayside, with a sea view room. Friendly, clean together with a varied menu. Cornish Breakfast set us up for the day. Its a long way the Porthleven, but with the food and service we received we shall be doing... More
