“Excellent meal, fantastic service, wonderful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We have eaten at the restaurant at the Long Cross Hotel five or six years in a row whilst staying nearby. It's an excellent restaurant, the food is fantastic and there is a lot of locally caught/produced food. The service was very good and the views of the bay are absolutely stunning. We sat on the terrace with a drink whilst looking at the menu and then ate in the conservatory, watching the sun setting.

Our meal this year was of the highest standard, and I was very impressed by the staff.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and restaurant. Every time we have eaten there it has been consistently good.

We stayed here for two nights and found it to be excellent

There was a wedding reception booked in on our first night but, as we were put into one of the rooms adjoining the hotel, the noise wasn't a problem.

Dinner in the restaurant on both nights was very good.

It is about a 25 minute walk into Port Isaac or you can park your car in the car park just outside the village. We did both. Maps are available from reception on which way to walk if you want that option.

As this hotel was only 500 yards from the place we stayed at during our 2 week holiday in Cornwall we thought we'd have a family meal.
And the service was excellent as well as the food which although being mainly fish and I'm not the biggest fan of fish I can honestly say I was very impressed at the portions sizes and the standard was more than I expected.
It was that good I'm now a convert to Crayfish for the starter i certainly recommend it.
The staff are certainly a credit to the hotel and restaraunt they were very helpfull and nothing was to much trouble.
In fact it was that good we went twice over the two week period.

We chose to stay at the Longcross Hotel following an internet search for a hotel with a car park near to Post Isaac. We found the hotel easily even though it is located in the countryside with access via a narrow road. When we arrived at this lovely hotel we were greeted warmly by the staff and shown to our room which had a fantastic view of the beautiful countryside and Port Isaac. The room and ensuite bathroom was adequate in size and extremely clean. We decided to have dinner in the hotel restaurant that evening but thought that we would dine out for the rest of the week. The dinner menu, which was moderately priced, the service and quality of food was so good that we ended up dining there every night throughout our stay. The breakfasts were equally as good and served by the hardworking and very pleasant waitress Sylvia. During our stay the owners introduced themselves and were anxious to know if everything was satisfactory. We were able to assure them that we were very happy with everything.

Room Tip: There are no lifts so be prepared to carry your suitcases upstairs. Be aware of the narrow roads lea...

Just come back from a 3nt break at the Longcross and would recommend it very highly. We stayed in the Love Shack, a converted potting shed set in the gardens, separate from the hotel, which has been reburbished to a very high standard. A lovely wetroom and the most comfortable HUGE bed!! Tea and coffee making facilities, tv, hairdryer all in room. The gardens are just beautiful and the little seating area outside the Love Shack is just perfect with its sea views. Breakfast was excellent and the waitress was very friendly and helpful - gave us tips for a great day out at Boscastle (well worth a visit) and even advised on the best route home (which was correct!) Restaurant in the hotel was lovely - enjoyed our meal but think the sea bream with sweet chilli sauce just tasted like a huge glug of sweet chilli sauce from a bottle had been tipped over everything and couldn't really taste anything else ?! May need to adjust that dish!! However the views from the restaurant and the beautiful decking area are simply stunning. All in all would definitely recommend. Port Isaac harbour is very closeby - saw all the Doc Martin buildings although the film crew have recently left. Very pretty in any event. All staff friendly and helpful - a great little hotel.

Room Tip: Would recommend the Love Shack if you want to feel a bit more secluded and private. Close enough to...

We stayed here for 2 nights in the "Love Shack" which was actually a restored cottage separate from the main building of the hotel in the garden. The cottage was lovely but the bed was quite lumpy and we would have appreciated a bar fridge.The views from the main building, restaurant and it's deck are beautiful and the 30 minute walk down to Port Isaac through the fields is wonderful. Breakfast in the hotel is efficiently served and well cooked. There does seem to be a little lack of interest from the staff - to find someone to ask questions of at reception was difficult and we had to carry our bags ourselves through the garden to our cottage, but overall we enjoyed our stay. The area is stunning, especially as we found it - in bright summer sun.
