It is rare to find a decent hotel that can accommodate dogs. The staff were very friendly and allowed us to eat breakfast in the separate area with him which we very much appreciated. Breakfast very nice. We didn't eat dinner so can't comment on that. Room was a good size and big bed. The view from the room is... More

We stayed at the Garrack last weekend, 2 adults and 2 kids, and had a great time. The room we were given had beautiful views and was very spacious, staff were helpful and friendly and the breakfast was one of the best we've had in a hotel. We'll definitely be returning and would highly recommend!

My partner and I stayed here for a couple of nights while away from the kids. The views from our bedroom window of Porth Meor beach were stunning and a joy to wake up to each morning. The hotel itself was clean, comfortable and peaceful. There is a small pool and bar with decked terrace area (unfortunately some of the... More

My husband and I recently stayed for a night at the Garrick Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. We relaxed with a drink on the lawn overlooking the sea and the beach, had a great sleep in a well-appointed room (also overlooking the sea) and ate wonderful meals in the restaurant. The breakfast was particularly memorable - lots of... More

I recently stayed here with my husband and our dog. The hotel was lovely with fantastic views. The staff were lovely and friendly and the receptionist when we arrived was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast in the morning was lovely, a huge variety to choose from and we were even given a table in a separate room so we could... More

Not good. Rude staff, zero customer service, uncomfortable tiny rooms for premium price. Only good thing about hotel are views however, you won't be able to enjoy these anyway. You're better off having cocktail/dinner at Portmeor beach, watch the sunset and drive the hell off.

I notice 75% of your reviews are 'Terrible'. Probably best to stay at home, clearly the issues are with you. More

My husband and I stayed at the Garrick Hotel for our 2nd wedding anniversary. On arrival we were amazed by how local the hotel was from the centre of town. We stayed in room 2 which was lovely, so airy and bright. We had a wonderful sea view and garden views. The only feedback would be to update the bathroom... More

Stayed here for a week at the beginning of August with our 5 year old daughter (room 10). Lovely hotel, perfect room for our needs with sea view, friendly staff, great restaurant (loved the different breakfast options). Really cannot say enough good things about this hotel, fully deserves its high tripadviser rating. Will definitely be returning! Andy L

We only spent 2 days there recently, and we were in a room to the rear of the hotel, but we still had a lovely time and even managed to get a little fitter walking up and down the hill. Not for folk with mobility issues, obviously, but the hospitality was second to none. Food was pretty yummy too !... More
