We walked in on the off chance they would have a room. We were in luck and got a room with a view of St Michaels Mount. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were friendly and there was a great atmosphere.

We have just returned from an excellent 2 night break at the Godolphin Arms with our 6 month old cocker spaniel.
We were in room 1 which has a fantastic view over St Michaels Mount, the room was large, modern and very comfortable. To say they are dog friendly is an understatement - they could not have done more to make us feel welcome, including a sausage for the dogs breakfast and a bowl of dog biscuits in the room. All of the staff are very dog friendly and take time out to chat.
The food was excellent and both the evening meals and the breakfasts were served quickly and were piping hot.
We would thoroughly recommend the Godolphin Arms - we have rarely stayed anywhere that has such friendly staff.

Room Tip: The sea facing rooms are more expensive but well worth it for the fantastic views.

We had done no research on this part of our vacation and walked in off the street looking for a room. We were lucky that we were shown the 2 available rooms to choose from, one on the first floor with a balcony with views across to St Michael's Mount and the second Room #1 on the basement level with a magnificent bay window with the same view as above. We chose room #1 because the weather was a little too inclement to sit on the balcony and the sun filled bay window allowed us to enjoy a coffee and tea and soak in the magnificent view. Marazion is a lovely town to wander around but we feel that we won the lottery by stumbling into this hotel. The room was large with good furnishings and appointments. We dined in the hotel for dinner and breakfast which was both convenient but also very tasty. The unique part of the stay was in the evening when the tide come in with the splash from the waves hitting our window. We loved the place. Another bonus was that free secure parking adjoined the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for room #1 if it is available.

We are currently on our 4th stay with a 5th booked! There is nothing negative i could say about the Godolphin and would thoroughly recommend it to a family or a couple. Room 6 and 7 are stunning. Room 7 is a very well proportioned "family room" our favoured room, and we are now very spoilt as no other family room we have stayed in in other hotels can live up to this one...it consists of a large bed (large enough to accomodate 2 adults, a 3 year old and a 9 year old!) off this room is then a room for the children complete with bunkbed and a tv! There is also a large bathroom. The highlight of the adults room are the double doors onto the very spacious balcony with THE most amazing view of St Michaels Mount. Seriously.. you will not want to leave!!!

The staff are all superb, of a standard that anyone in the UK service industry should aspire to. They are all so friendly and helpful and we really do feel sincerely welcome when we stay..which makes us want to return again and again. In fact we don't want to leave and my children want to live here :D

The pub with rooms and two massive bars wont dispoint. We stayed in a ground floor room (no. 2) and the view over St Michels Mount was just perfect. It wasgreat to sit in the room with a coffee looking over the changing sea scape.

The bars in the place are very busy, but you can always find somewhere to sit. Its dog friendly so we were able to take our dogs and they also loved it.

Rooms - Well appointed with a clean and very new wet room. Good shower. Excellent linen on oversized singles with a nice amount of space between them. The room wasn't massive, but were light, bright and very very clean! Room safe and fridge! Lots of hangers.

Breakfast was ok, not amazing, but good. Juices and fruit, pastries and fresh strawberries a nice touch. They do need to sharpen up on the cooked breakfast. The eggs were pre poached and not cooed through (no glutenous white) and the bacon and sausage could have been better, but thats only a slight niggle. The toast was ample and the butter was great! Coffee served in a caffertiere could have had a spoonful more coffee added as it was a little weak but thats preferance more than anything.

Dogs bowls and towels in the room a nice touch.

Room Tip: Room 2 worth the extra for the view!

We had'nt stayed at the Godolphin before and we were looking forward to our 10 day stay. We were not disappointed. We found our accomodation very relaxing in a spacious room. The food was always fresh and we could not find fault with our stay at all. The most important thing was all the staff, who were always friendly and made time to be helpful.

We would recommend the Godolphin to everyone.

We booked in here on the day of arrival, out of season, we were pleasantly surprised to be allocated a family room with balcony at a reduced price!
The room was lovely with the most amazing views of St Michaels Mount.
We would happily stay here again and would highly recommend it!
