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

Having secured staffing cover for my own B&B in Mevagissey I set about trying to book accommodation for 2 nights to enjoy what I call ‘a homework holiday’ which entails me exploring the chosen area so that the info and tips I give my guests is correct. Our first night was in Porthleven (couldn’t get 2 nights in Penzance) and... More

We were down for a wedding and had booked a sea-view room, well worth the bit extra, a lovely room overlooking the harbour, plenty of coffee,tea, biscuits, water in the room, nice toiletries in the spotless bathroom. A concert by the Helston Town Band was a WONDERFUL surprise on Friday night but you would have needed the earplugs provided if... More

We had a week in Porthleven in a very comfortable room, breakfasts were great with a good choice and the service was all given with a smile. The only drawback as far as we were concerned was the noise from the groups at the weekend, otherwise a very nice break. Makes a good centre for other attractions.

Stayed for one night when the winter storms were at their height very spectacular waves on the harbour. Our room was clean and functional it had everything you needed even ear plugs? The staff were all very helpful and the meals were good The earplugs came in useful during the overnight storm

A very pleasant and enjoyable Sunday lunch being a Turkey or Beef carvery for 4 or in my case a Turkey AND Beef carvery. Lovely location took precaution of ringing through a table reservation for the 1.30pm sitting, well worth while as had a window seat looking out to the Harbour. Excellent food, lovely staff, thank you.
