“Average Place in a Spectacular setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

This is a VERY typical English style Guest House that's not been brought into the 21st century. In some ways that's a good thing...the pub. In other ways it's a bit annoying...the quality of the rooms.
The location is absolutely spectacular which is probably how they can get away with the room charges which are a bit pricey for the standard. They've not been renovated for years and there's plenty evidence of quick repairs, plugs missing, tiles cracked and so on. All the fittings are as cheap as can be and to be fair, someone (I'm guessing a woman) has had a go at little bits of colour co-ordination and matching accessories here and there to make the place more homely. I can imagine that their target market is weekenders and folk looking for cheap accommodation as close to the huge beach as you can get, so there will be no real motivation for the owners to spend any real time and effort on decor, which is a shame, because they could have a truly great restaurant or much better food offering that people would pay more for. But for a weekend it's perfectly fine. I wouldn't want to spend a week there though.

Lovely location on the beach. We were there for 3 nights for a wedding and the Seiners does these really well. I only have one complaint and it relates to the room we were staying in (number 29). The mattress was terrible not only is there absolutely no wadding on the springs but the springs themselves are on the way out. It was the worst 3 nights sleep I have had for years. I would definitely go back again but would ask about the bed first. No one else had as much of a problem as we did so other rooms may have newer beds. I did email them when I returned but have not had any response. There is also a very bright light outside this room which was an issue for my partner who is a much lighter sleeper than I am.

This hotel really knows how to put on a wedding, superb Ocean views. Fresh local food and plenty of it, great staff who excel at their jobs. From the moment you arrive you are put at ease by the overall welcome.
Yes the rooms are a bit dated, yes parking is a bit hap hazard, there are plenty of sterile box type hotels out there where you are just a number. The Seiners makes you part of the family, don't miss Thursday nights Quiz night. Its not for the to serious and Lisa will get you all doing crazy stuff to earn extra points. We will all be going back 76 of us.

Just returned from our wedding here at the seiners. We couldn't have asked for a better venue. Lisa and dan are really fantastic and made sure that everything ran smoothly. The food was outstanding and all the guests have commented so. If you are looking for a beach wedding in Cornwall then look no further!! Very reasonably priced. We have been to perranporth on holiday for the past 5 years and always pay the seiners a visit. Couldn't recommend enough!!

When we saw the Seiners Arms, we where a little cautious, there was no need to be concerned, a great welcome from the staff and a complementally coffee while the paperwork was filled in, a very good room and very clean, not only that a BATH, we ate in the bar that evening and the meal was excellent

Maybe a little disorganised and the rooms could do with updating but it's good for what you pay, there's a great view (except for the horrible new pub that's now been built on Perranporth beach - what were they thinking?) and the staff are very friendly.

Just returned from our third visit to Perranporth but our first time at Seiners and have to say that I will definitely be back next year. Upon arrival we checked in at the bar and the staff were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Our Sea View room was spotlessly clean and the view was absolutely amazing. This hotel is 100% dog friendly which is great for us as we have had to stay in a holiday rental and a lodge before which don't compare in any way. The first morning we had breakfast on the terrace as the weather was scorching (dogs are not allowed in the Restaurant), the view was breathtaking and the breakfast hearty and made fresh to order. The following morning the weather was cold so the staff quickly set us up a table in the bar so we could eat inside. In the evening we dined twice in the bar and the food was delicious. The portions were huge, the food was hot and the presentation very good. The staff are all so friendly and there are always dog treats behind the bar. My dog can be fussy with treats so Stuart from behind the bar got him a couple of sausages from the kitchen to eat! Parking can be limited here but there is a long stay car park seconds away which costs £6.60 for 24 hours (be aware of an over zealous parking official who patrols early in the morning!!!!). The Seiners is a great value hotel with the most spectacular views - I can't wait until next year.

Room Tip: Choose a Sea View room and be entertained by the crazy surfers who never fail to amaze!
