Very nice and clean hotel with a short walking distance to the marina, where you can have a dinner. The breakfast menu is abundant and I would highly recommend the scrambled egg with smoked salmon - delicious...

We had the ensuite room, nice bed good amenities. The was an adjoining room with bunk beds which although we didn't use it would be handy for families. The location was perfect and close to a variety of restaurants for dinner. A good breakfast and friendly people. Very clean, so a good choice in this area.

The lovely welcome from owner Roanna immediately made me feel at home. The room was comfortable, even if it was a little bit on the small size, and the narrow and busy street made me a bit wary of noise, but the nights were very quiet, and I had three excellent sleeps. Breakfast was great, and in a nice little...

Absolutely loved this B&B. Roanna was the perfect host, such a lovely lady. The rooms were decorated to such a high standard and spotlessly clean. Lovely little touches like fresh milk and water in the small fridge in our room. Everything was of good quality and lots of thought has gone into little details right down to the delicious biscuits...

Stayed here for a couple of nights with work but would be a lovely base for a stay in this part of Cornwall. Literally around the corner from the little port at Porthleven, with lots of restaurants on your doorstep! Room was spacious and clean and I especially loved that the little fridge in my room had fresh milk in...

Friendly host, offered to keep our cycles in her garage. Good location close to harbour near lot of different restaurants ( all types and all budget). Clean and light room with tea/coffee facilities. Only disadvantage was that our bathroom was across the landing next time I´ll will book sooner ahead to get an ensuite room.

If you don't mind crossing a landing to your private shower/loo room this is the place for you. The rooms are light and airy and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is cooked to order and fresh fruit and yogurt is available alongside cereals of your choice. The rooms have tea making facilities and fridge. I believe one of the 4 rooms does...

We staggered into The Copper Kettle after our first day of Coastal Path walking, tired and footsore. What a pleasant, welcoming place it was. Our room was bright and cheery, and had tea/coffee/cocoa and even biscuits. The bed was delightful. The location is just a few blocks from the charming harbor; so nice to walk around on a summer evening....

A comfortable bed and breakfast in the centre of Porthleven -, friendly welcome and close to all amenities. The breakfast was delicious - lovely fruit and freshly cooked 'full English' Some great restaurants within a few minutes walk of the Copper Kettle.

“We had the en suite bedroom which has an adjoining room with a bunk bed. It wasn't being used so we were able to spread out a little which was nice. I'm sure that's not possible during the high season.”
