3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

It's near the station, near the harbour, in a lovely building...but (on our visit) it just didn't work. Service was slow, food was missing ("oh sorry, we ran out of that ingredient" - no offer to substitute for something else!) and what did arrive was not especially tasty and felt shoved together. We ended up spending £80 on what was... More

A weekend getaway in Cornwall where we stayed at the quaint Longboat Inn. Friendly staff, good food and very reasonably priced. The breakfast was good and the restaurant serves good food especially the Fish & Chips.

My brother and brother in law needed a break after my sister died. They tell me they could not fault anything about this hotel. The room was kept clean, had good facilities and they could have whatever they wanted for breakfast. The staff were also very helpful. To get all this at the price is to be recommended

I have been staying at the longboat for the past 14 years. It is situated close to the bus and railway stations. The food has always been good and service from all the staff has always been excellent. This is not a 5 star hotel but you get what you pay for. Ryan has always been exceptional on all occasions...

First of all, I've visited the longboat many a time over the past 10 years, to the point where on return it's more like greeting an old friend than checking in to a hotel. Ryan ( the hotel manager) is an absolute delight of a human being, always cheerful, polite and willing to go that extra mile to please the... More

We'll be going to the Longboat again next week, after our first visit last June. The only thing I can say to the moaners is that, as somebody has already mentioned, if you're looking for 4-Star accommodation, go for it, and pay through your nose for it!!! The accommodation at the Longboat is very basic but comfortable. Staff members do... More

My daughter and I stayed one night at The Longboat on a recent trip to Cornwall. I chose this hotel mainly because of it's proximity to the station and bus station, as we were travelling around by rail. Our rooms were a bit "tired" but clean and perfectly adequate, I think some of the negative reviewers expect 4* facilities at... More
