“Afternoon Tea in The Glenbervie Bar, Mullion Cove Hotel”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

My Mum and I had a nice afternoon tea at the Mullion Cove Hotel today. It is a lovely looking hotel on the cliff top of Mullion Cove. When we arrived we were given a choice of where we would like to sit for our tea - in the bar or one of the many lounges. We chose the bar area, as we prefer a proper table to eat at.

We had a choice of tea or coffee (mind the milk jugs, they drip). Our afternoon tea arrived on a slate three-tier cake stand. It consisted of: four open sandwiches (2 smoked salmon with capers and pea shoots, and 2 parma ham with rocket) two scones (1 sultana, 1 plain), two slices of lemon cake, two small squares of dark chocolate mousse, two small shortbread discs, and two mini cakes with sesame seeds on. It was all very nice but I enjoyed the open sandwiches the most, the bread was lovely.

The staff were very friendly but we did have to go and find one when we wanted some more hot water and milk.

Over all the meal was really nice. The cost was £25 between two of us which is a good price conpaired to other afternoon teas that we have had elsewhere. We had a look at the main food menu on the way out and decided that we would return another day for a lunch. I imagine this would be a nice hotel to stay at, the decor is excellent and it is well maintained and clean.

My wife and I recently stayed a week here on DBB terms. The views over Mullion Island and the Atlantic ocean were just fabulous. The food was exquisitely prepared, presented and served by very friendly and smiley staff. The manager, Chris, has assembled, and trained, an excellent team which does justice to the location of this fine hotel. Happy to recommend to anyone we come into contact with. Bill & Jean Smith

Stayed at this hotel back in June for an impromptu break away from home. First and foremost, the location was simply outstanding. And just right for what my hubby and I were after! Beautiful sea views surround the hotel with a refreshing touch of salty air to really make us feel relaxed. Most staff were very accommodating, though some could do with a bit more 'pep' as they weren't always very talkative (very awkward when waiting for a drink to be served..)

On to the food! As a food lover I have to say the desserts were a real pleasure for me. Unexpected little touches fondled my plate and I didn't know whether to eat mine or my hubby's plate first! For a hotel that isn't of rosette standing (that I'm aware..) they are very lucky to have snapped up someone with such a delicate touch with the food. For this alone we will be back.

The room itself was extremely clean and fresh; through slightly old fashioned corridors but not overly so. Just enough to bring up some nostalgia!

Overall a lovely short get away and we will be back. A shine up here and there would just add to the wonderful atmosphere in this very relaxing part of the country.

ps. wifi could do with a definite wake up! Not so much of a problem for us but can imagine it would frustrate those in need of internet

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view, sit back and enjoy

Stayed for a week in June. The food at dinner was excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the views from the sea facing rooms were great. The main problem is the WiFi it just does not work and is always going to be fixed tomorrow

Room Tip: Avoid suites as WiFi is not available

During our Cornwall holiday decided to come and enjoy a sunday lunch at this hotel. The view from the restaurant was quite magnificent. The lunch menu was extremely well thought out providing choices for even the most discerning diner. The 28 day hung Cornish beef is probably some of the finest I have eaten for sometime, and I come from South Devon, proud of our beef. Service was attentive and courteous, presentation of food was first class, selection of wines excellent, and the restaurant was busy when we visited, always a good sign.

As many other reviews have stated, this is a first class hotel in a staggeringly beautiful location. The staff are first class and always helpful. The new General Manager was particularly adept at compiling the delicious "Lizard Lifeboat" cocktail - well recommended.

So, any downsides? Well, as mentioned in other reviews, the Wifi reception in the upper bedrooms was abysmal (.5 Mbps!). It meant I had to go to the ground floor to check my email. A repeater hub could be fitted at a minimal cost - please fix!

The food was well cooked and presented in a modern minimalist style - which meant that, for example, the Peach Melba would send Dame Nellie into a state of anorexia!

It's a hotel worth a visit - you'll certainly be well treated.

My partner and I came here for Sunday lunch about six weeks ago. We were so impressed that we made a return visit this weekend, and we were not disappointed. Well travelled and exacting foodies, we can be a little difficult to please, and would never consider going back to the same place twice unless we were one hundred percent satisfied with the quality of food, service and facilities, and had been given good value for money.
The hotel itself boasts stunning views, and inside, is extremely comfortable, with a classy atmosphere. You cannot fault the service, nothing is too much trouble, and each member of staff we have encountered has been friendly and polite.
We have now enjoyed the three course Sunday lunch twice. High end, imaginitive combinations of flavours, beautifully presented, and delicious. Depending on which starter you order, you may feel a little disappointed on seeing the size of the portion, but by the time you finish your dessert, you'll be more than satisfied. We both have huge appetites and couldn't have eaten another thing. The quality of food is far higher than you would normally expect in this area, unless you are prepared to pay a lot of money for it. We were so surprised when we were presented with our first bill to discover the cost was only £15.00 per head!!
We will definitely be back (again) !!!
