“Fun quiz night”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

We were staying in Sennen Cove for a week and went to the pub on Thursdays quiz night. Good beer, pub food and fun quiz. We didn't win but enjoyed trying! Best part was not worrying about driving home after a few drinks!

Found this place through TripAdvisor and it is a great find. Located right on the fantastic beach, good sized clean and tidy rooms and a good restaurant that does a great breakfast. Good value and really pleasant staff.

Clean rooms, really great view over the beautiful cove of Sennen - and nice to be able to pop downstairs and try the great food.
Especially nice atmosphere in the evenings - and great to be able to have the dog with us.
Would recommend.

We came here for a drink because they accept dogs! Great atmosphere and the staff are lovely and friendly. We ended up having food as all the food coming out if the kitchen looked great. Highly recommend it...especially if you have dogs. Very chilled out and relaxed place to be :)

For an overnight or weekend stay this is an ideal location. With stunning views over Sennen Cove, gorgeous beach and sea, this place is great for a short stay. Not being pub people, this was still okay for an overnight stay, with a nice atmosphere and perfect location for the beach and sea views.

We didn't try the food, but, it looked nice and the staff we welcoming and friendly. It's quite buzzy inside, popular with outdoorsy types and locals alike.

If you're a regular pub goer, I would say you would love this place and in summer one can sit outside and watch the world ( sea!) go by and all the surfers.

The accommodation is clean and comfortable and for ease of access for the beach, surfing, kayaking, swimming, walking, just an ideal spot.

Stayed here last November for five nights, the room we were allocated was not brilliant, looked out onto a extractor fan from the kitchens , and was a tad on the cramped side. The atmosphere in the Pub was excellent, busy and comfortable, the Real ales were spot on , breakfasts and dinners were super. The staff were both friendly and efficient. The location could hardly be bettered and just a short walk over the cliffs to Lands End and further afield. Will stay here again but not in the same room.

This was not the first time that we have stayed at The Old Success, which is situated as close as one can get to the stunning beach at Sennen Cove.

Since our last visit there has been a change of management and it was nice to see that the previous high standards have been maintained. The food and real ale served was of a very good standard (particularly the Sunday lunch) and, as previously, all the staff were well led, highly motivated, professional, helpful and friendly.

This is a great old Inn with a very friendly atmosphere and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: They are all pretty good with those overlooking the sea quite stunning.
