We have just returned from an excellent Shearings five day break.
We had a delayed start due to traffic problems with a feeder coach but our driver Steve started the holiday with these words" I will give you a holiday that I would expect if I were a customer". His standards were high and he did not disappoint. The driver makes your holiday and Steve was an excellent driver/ tour guide.
We arrived at the hotel at 8.30 following our delay and with the food serving finishing at 8 we were served when we arrived by a friendly and efficient staff. The food was fresh and well cooked. The excellent service continued throughout our stay.
All the staff at this hotel were friendly and acknowledged all customers when in contact.A five star service from the top to the bottom.
The location of the hotel was excellent and set on the side of a very pretty harbour. Good views of the harbour from the dining room/ lounge area.
The room we had was on the corner of the hotel and had recently been refurbished. Room 136. A new shower that worked perfectly.
The only downside was that the heating went off during the night and did not come on until 7am. With breakfast at 7.30 it would have been nice if the heating came on at 5.30 so that the room was warm when we got up. We did mention this to reception who provided a portable heater to solve this problem.
Overall for the amount we paid the holiday was excellent and we would certainly return again.
- 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
