If your looking for a Cornish village location then the harbour inn is a great place to stay, the rooms are modern ours looked out over the harbour, the inn is full of character and in a great location. The staff are friendly and very helpful, breakfast was very good, we shall return soon.

Welcomed after another long day walking. Room right at the back of the property, quiet, however window looked over an area I think the staff use to have a chat / smoke, so had to close the window. Food very good. Bed lost firmness at one end so slept top and tail!

Stopped off here for lunch on a warm sunny day (really is was sunny) and sat in the outside area to enjoy the view and the sun. We had a tuna sandwich each, potion of chips and drinks. The staff are friendly and the food was served quite quickly considering how busy it was. Beware of the gulls trying to... More

The Harbour Inn is a wonderful place to stay to use as your base for a weekend of exploring beautiful cornwall. We arrived quite late on Friday night and after being shown to our room (which was very comfortable and well appointed with a nice clean and modern bathroom) we then had a lovely meal and relaxed with a few...

We stopped in for a lunch and wow. The food was well proportioned and a very reasonable priced. We ate on the harbour wall, but don't worry about being pestered by birds, there is plenty of anti seagull wires strung over the tables. Be careful though, you exit from the pub to the harbour seating area straight onto the road.... More

We stayed one night partway through a Cornish coastal path walk; rooms spacious and newly decorated. Excellent location right on harbour front. Very good breakfast choice including smoked salmon or kippers.

When tourists make the decision to travel twenty miles to a town for a special occasion meal and then choose to patronise a specific restaurant amongst a choice of numerous eateries, you'd presume that an acceptable standard of customer care would be offered by any quality restaurant as a matter of routine. It is highly significant that, at the Harbour... More

Such a lovely place! Excellent location and the rooms were beautiful. Only down side is its a bit noisy from the pub at night until about 11 especially at the weekend which didn't bother us because we were in the pub but if you have small children you need to take this into consideration. That aside I will definitely be... More
