My husband and I were unable to book a full holiday because the rooms over the weekend were full - a wedding nearby. We had five nights in a double room overlooking the harbour, two nights in a B and B, then came back to a twin room, again overlooking the harbour. We loved the first room because it had... More

What a great find. An extended crabbing session resulted in us just trying this place nearby and it proved to be the best food of the holiday. Fresh and tasty, good fish pie and nice steak and fresh veg. My son said the fish was better than a certain place in Padstow. Porthleven too is up there with the best... More

We called in here one evening on the off chance for dinner. Luckily there were tables spare as it can get busy. The food was simply stunning, both my wife and I went for the Steak and Ale pie. The service was also exceptional and the pub also stocks a good choice of real ales. Well worth a visit.

What a fantastic place to stay if you're walking the South West Coastal Path. Comfortable, clean room, sitting area overlooking the harbor, not cramped like so any hotel rooms in England and close to everything in town.

Booked the family room for 2 nights on the same day of travel. You enter into a twin bedroom with comfy twin beds and a tv and through another (proper) door to the double bedroom and bathroom and another tv so I didn't have to watch CBBC all my stay! Clean Modern furniture, tea and coffee making facilities with decent... More

a bustling pub with rooms upstairs. Service for both checking in and eating was a little chaotic, but they were very busy. The room had very comfortable beds and a delightful bathroom. Breakfast was standard fare - middle of the road.

I surprised the wife with a night away in porthleven for her birthday. All I can say is FANTASTIC! The room was clean, spacious and met all expected needs and wants. The staff were very friendly, the food was excellent. Overall very happy with my choice to stay at the harbour, will definitely be back.

I was told the food was great in the place - don't believe it. Apart from the fact that it looks very tired. I had the misfortune to order spinach and mushroon lasagna, I have never been served anything like this before it was awful, there was n o mushroom and the sauce didn't seem cooked, it was solid and...

Beautiful location. We were in Porthleven for a wedding nearby. The music entertainment offered in the lounge bar was very good and the local brass band played on the harbourside which made for a very pleasant evening. Hotel and rooms were clean and comfortable and the food offered on the evening menu was very good as were the breakfasts. The... More

The pub inside was very nice but a bit dated and very dark inside. The menu was good and varied a lot of choice. Didn't have to wait too long for our meal. The only downside was my husband had egg shell left in his meal so it put him off his meal a bit. We had a nice bitter... More
