Had one night's stay in the Harbour Inn and wished we had booked more as the room was lovely, so big complete with a lounge room, hallway, bedroom and bathroom. Very clean. Greeted and shown our room by Mike who was very helpful. Comfy bed. however if you are seeking a quiet, early night on a Friday or a Saturday... More

The breakfast is lovely, lots of it, staff are really nice. Room was spotless as was the bathroom. Comfy bed and beautiful clean white towels. View (if you get the right room) is superb. On the down side, not a fan of shower over bath - in fact the one in our room was in our opinion bordering on dangerous... More

Stopped here overnight when walking our latest section of the SWCP. Very good location, although our room over the bar at the front was a little noisy - that said, we did not end up having to use the ear plugs that were kindly provided! The room was OK as was breakfast in the morning, although the bed could have... More

Another one night stop over on our progress round the SWCP. The room was clean, warm and comfortable despite no view. For one night this was no issue. It looked as though our room, no. 9, had been recently decorated and the en-suite facilities were brand new. Suspicious ear plugs by the bed were not needed. We took our meal... More

The pub is located in the heart of Porthleven, in the middle of the harbour. Great and suggestive location, a must if you are visiting Cornwalls. The pub is a classical english pub, quite welcoming, tables a bit sticky. There is a good selection of food and the prices are fair. Service is ok, nothing special, but no issues, maybe... More

we were warned on arrival that there was a band playing on the Saturday night and for that reason, earplugs were provided in our room. the band was so loud that even with the earplugs, there was no chance of sleep before 11pm. the standard double room was of a good size and well decorated/furnished and spotlessly clean. I didn't... More

We found a really good, carefully modernised old Inn. The rooms were very clean, good beds, very friendly, genuine Cornish staff, great breakfast. The location is superb - the Harbour Inn truly sits in the middle of Porthleven harbour. We loved the earplugs that were provided to keep out the live music played in the pub this evening...

Visited Portleven on a lovely sunny day. Sat in the beer garden next to the river. Great location. We all had the Cornish pasties which were delicious. Great setting, great weather and a great pasty! And luckily no seagulls tried to nick it!
