I booked very last minute due to Covid. I had my 4 legged super friend with me so it was a delight to find the staff so welcoming to us both. Next time I will ask for a harbour view as the view over the roof and the air conditioning units is not to be recommended. However, as it was mid-winter it didn't matter too much as it gets dark so early. Great staff, clean room, lovely bathroom, right where you'd want to be to walk the coast path. Highly recommended.

We have stayed at the Harbour in the past and already knew it to be a warm and welcoming establishment. This time we were down at Christmas time as we were visiting friends in Prorthleven over the holiday period. We were pleasantly surprised to have been put in one of the harbour view rooms. We had stayed in one of them on a visit in the summer, but this time we had one with a bay window! It was absolutely delightful to sit on the comfortable chairs in the bay and watch the waves crash against the harbour wall (oh and watch the very hardy people of Porthleven leap into the harbour for a Christmas Day swim - we didn't join them!) We didn't have dinner at the pub, as (as I have already said) we were visiting friends, but the breakfasts were delicious. My wife said it was the best porridge she has ever tasted! We were only staying 'bed & breakfast' but on Christmas Day evening, we came in to find a beautiful (and once more delicious) platter of cold meats and cheeses - they were very unexpected and we really enjoyed them. In the words of Mr Schwarzenegger "we'll be back"...
