Spent 6 nights at porth avallen hotel. Initial thoughts of room were that it was slightly damp but overall fine. Staff were very friendly. The main reason behind giving the low rating was that on one day after sight seeing, arrived back at hotel room to find door was wide open, wedged by a chair. Leaving my belongings open for... More

Lovely hotel with pleasant friendly staff in a beautiful setting overlooking the bay. My single room was located at the side of the building but I was lucky in having an excellent sea view. Room was clean and had everything I needed for my stay. Perfectly situated for many of Cornwall's tourist attractions and at a very reasonable rate when... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights. The staff were very friendly, the main attraction being the owner George Abraham who was extremely friendly and efficient. The hotel overlooks Carlyon Bay. The hotel had been extended over the years and it seemed to be like a rabbit warren when locating our room as it was some way from reception..... More

The sea view from this hotel is stunning, one which we enjoyed during our stay. The rooms are in need of some upgrading but hopefully none that change the character and atmosphere of this lovely old building which sits comfortably amongst a delightful garden in a very quiet road but provides easy access to all the attractions and bustle of...

Whilst I have known this Hotel for over 50 years it is the first time I have stayed. We were made very welcome on arrival and the double room was adequate for our short stay. Unfortunately the décor looks very tired and the standard of cleaning could be improved. Toilet roll holder would not fix to the wall, waste bin... More

Another stay at the Porth Avallen Hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful. The weather was great and the views across the bay spectacular. On my own this time, so I had a single room. Not the same brilliant views of the bay but I hadn't expected it to. So for me on my own it was fine.

The hotel has terrific views over the sea and positioned very close to many of the Cornish attractions. The food is very good and well cooked with plentifull beakfasts and dinners. The staff were very friendly and helpful but, at times, under pressure to provide an acceptable service. The hotel rooms, both public and bedrooms, require maintenance and updating. The... More

Just back from a lovely 6 night stay at Porth Avallen Hotel. Shared a twin room with my mum who has reduced mobility so we had ground floor room. View was beautiful across Carlyon Bay and appreciated from bar, dining room and bedroom. As many reviews have said, the bedroom decor was a little tired with attention required to carpets... More

2 star room for 4 star price. Booked a deluxe room!! On entering our room the smell of damp was over powering, one look in the bathroom explained why, mould on the ceiling and tiles that hadn't been cleaned in an age. The décor was tired and furniture very dirty, cobwebs in the room and dust all over the bathroom.... More
