Spent a few days down here with a friend. When we arrived the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were shown to our rooms which were very nice, the views were bad as we had back rooms but to be honest how long do you really spend in your rooms?? Had a lovely walk along the harbour along to...

We visited Porthleven last week and popped in a few times for lunch, which was tasty and good value for money. We also popped in for an afternoon drink and the staff were so welcoming and friendly and helpful to accommodate our baby. Perfectly placed at the harbour. Free WiFi is a bonus.

4 of us stayed in a holiday cottage in Porthleven over Christmas (great place) We ate in the Harbour Inn on 2 occasions and the food was excellent. It is not a posh restaurant but the food was tasty and good value, with friendly staff.

Love this place - the location - the food - the staff - everything. Perfectly situated in the harbour, with comfortable surroundings, lovely staff and readily available pub grub. They've done well recuperating from the terrible storms last year and this is appreciated by those of us who know how very hard that was. Well done and see you again... More

We were on a spur of the moment trip and had planned to stay the night in one of the well advertised Inns that we all see on the TV. However, to our dismay the place we'd intended to stay was fully booked so we had to do a hurried search! What a bit of luck because we happened upon... More

A lovely stone pub set right on the shore of the harbour as the name suggests. Nicely laid out seating and friendly helpful staff. To keep my husband happy there were two real ales on offer and a Cornish lager. The food was very fresh and well presented but not necessarily value for money.

Came to this lovely pub two nights ago for a meal with friends. We often holiday in Porthleven and have visited a number of the local pubs and restaurants which we love but this was the first time we tried the Harbour after a friend recommended it. So glad we did! We had a wonderful evening. The pub is so... More

I stayed here in August 2014 for 3 nights with my boyfriend. I have been to many places abroad as well as in the UK and stayed in the Trevose in St Ives and can honestly say I found the service and location of this hotel fantastic. The hotel is located right by the sea and we paid extra for... More

I stayed at the delightful Harbour Inn in late Oct 2014 during a walking trip with a friend. We had a great stay and really appreciated the fact that, despite the relatively isolated location, this is a bustling, full-of-life place with bags of atmosphere. The Cornish breakfast set us up perfectly for some long days of hiking and the meals... More
