We enjoyed this hotel so much that we extended our 2 night stay by another night. And even then we only left because we had run out of time. What more can I say?
Excellent location right in the thick of it. Probably not so good if you're coming by car (no parking), but great if you're not. We had just done a gruelling stretch of the South West Coast Path (Pendeen - St Ives), so catching our first glimpse of this place was truly a sigh for sore eyes.
The room was very clean and comfy (we were given one which faced out to the back, which apparently was much quieter), the pub was lively and friendly (it was open-mic night), the staff helpful and polite, but best of all was the food. This is a proper gastro-pub but without being poncey. We got top-notch grub at reasonable prices, and the atmosphere was relaxed and fun.
All in all, this is a great establishment, and I would very very happily stay here again.
