“A nice stay in a beautiful spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at the port gaverne whilst playing against St Enedoc in a golf fixture. Good value to stay at, as we needed a bed for the evening and a good hearty breakfast. We got both.
Rooms are very quant and I would consider staying again, however room was not ready when I arrived as shower did not work and was not attached to the wall. Otherwise was very pleased.

Thank you for the kind review - we hope your golf was successful. Thank you for letting us know about the shower, occasionally things are not quite right and guests do not tell us......so thank you!
We look forward to seeing you again soon.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

11 of us walked up on a Saturday of a Bank Holiday weekend for lunch, mixture of adults and kids.
One lady behind the bar was extremely warm and friendly, even cooked something off menu for my coeliac daughter, the gentleman who brought our food could not have been nicer or more helpful.
11 meals with fussy kids as well all well cooked and delivered quickly - which lets face it is the most important thing when you eat out with children.
Really cannot fault the restaurant - didn't stay in the hotel, but I would imagine that is good too.

I don't say this very often but I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

We are so pleased that you had a good evening with us, particularly as it was so busy as this is the time when service can get a bit slow. We are grateful for your review and hope that you come back and see us soon.

We have stayed here many times and I have just booked again for a late October short break. Pleasant friendly staff and atmosphere, and the beer is good. Rooms are always clean and well appointed. Restaurant offers good food and the quality is always top notch. Location is perfect for seeking out Cornwall's treasure trove of stunning scenery. Can't think of a better place to be in late autumn. early winter. Cornwall and this hotel are never out of season.

Thank you for the charming review - we strive to keep up all our standards but I think what seems to shine most are our wonderful staff. Yes, we all have our bad days, but nine times out of ten I think we give a pretty good service. Do come back and see us soon.

We stayed at port gaverne hotel for four days as our daughter was getting married locally. From the moment of our arrival we were looked after superbly by the whole team. Nothing was too much trouble and it all helped the bridal party stay relaxed. All of the eight rooms that we had booked were immaculately clean, extremely comfortable beds, some had small balconys and others a larger decking area to sit outside on. Bathrooms were of a good size with toiletries provided and lovely large bath towels. Tea and coffee making facilities in each room with biscuits etc which was great for a relaxing cup of tea some afternoons. Food in the bar and restaurant is superb. You can mix and match from both menus in the bar and the restaurant so all tastes and budgets are catered for. On one evening there were 20 of us choosing from different menus and to the credit of the chef and his team, each and every meal was presented beautifully, hot, and all together which was no easy feat. The bar (yes we did frequent that a bit) had a very good buzz as the locals made us welcome. Initially we thought parking might be a problem as it is a bit limited for spaces but with the receptionist taking car numbers we were able to double park and it wasn't a problem at all. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed their stay and we will certainly be back to enjoy the hotel and the area again when we don't have the pressures of a wedding to see to. The whole team from front reception, the bar staff, the housekeeping team, the lovely lady who served us breakfast and dinner to the most important person..the chef, made our stay fantastic. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: The rooms above the bar and reception do hear some noise from below. Rooms 18,19 and 20 have a door...

Wow, thank you for your honest and kind review! I will print it off and put it up on the staff notice board where it can be seen by all the staff. I do hope the weather did not affect the wedding too much, such a shame when we have had days of sunshine all around that weekend!
We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Excellent hotel, good room, with large ensuite. Good towels. Ate in the bar each evening, good selection of specials. Overall a great place to stay. Right on the coastal path. We did a good walk from the hotel to Padstow and got the bus back which drops you right outside the hotel. Breakfast was fine. All the staff were friendly.

We stayed here with our dog and had a great time. Our room was spacious and modern and had a balcony with a restricted view of the harbour which was lovely. A short walk to port Isaac, but good to be slightly further out as much quieter. Bar was cosy and bar food also good.

Stayed for a weekend getaway with my partner. A small but charming hotel, ideal if you want to escape the chaos of the big city. Staff friendly and inviting.
A short walk into port Issac which has a few restaurants and bars.
