Just returned from a week in st mawes and stayed at the ship and castle hotel one of shearings coast and country hotels we stayed in room 208 and the view of the quay was well worth the room upgrade tariff but on the negative side the bedroom definately needs refurbishing and the bathroom with no heating was freezing and definately had the worst over the bath showers that I have ever tried to use,on the possitive side the hotels lounge areas are very comfortable with great views,the staff do make you feel very welcome and we enjoyed all our meals,as usual we did this holiday on a self drive basis and although the hotel has no car park (they do tell you this in the hotels web page ) we parked just down the road in the large coucil run carpark and found that we could pay a one off fee of £25 for 120 hours one downside is you have to pay in coins so maybe the council could upgrade their machines so that you could pay by card ?.The Victoria inn next door is a great traditional pub with a very friendly welcome with good beers and ciders and a much appreciated log fire.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Where the Rivers' Fal and Percuil meet to join the open sea, St Mawes boasts the perfect picture postcard retreat and at the heart of the village, right on the quay you will find The Ship and Castle Hotel. Once The Ship and Castle Inn, and a warren of small fishermen's cottages (remnants of which can still be seen at the rear of the existing building) The Ship and Castle is now a 54 bedroom hotel with all the charm and character one would expect for its location. Our bar and lounges offer the perfect location for a peaceful day in St Mawes watching the world go by, or enjoying a traditional Cornish Cream Tea. We have a selection of sea view rooms which understandably are in high demand and are well recommended to make your stay that little bit more special. ... more less
