      Location

      Additional expense for car parking. Feeling that some of the bedrooms would benefit from re-decorating and new carpets. Suggest option of dining- in without using the restaurant and ability to select meals from a more extensive menu.

    • Older travelers

      The service in the bedroom and bathroom and the cleanliness also the restaurant in the evening all in all a very good hotel

    • Older travelers

      The room was a delight....a lovely harbour view...even from the loo! we asked for a double with a bath and a harbour view and that was exactly what we got...and then some! Comfy bed, loads of hot water, fresh towels, de-caf coffee option on the hospitality tray, nice quality toiletries and chocolates on the pillows....Bliss!

      To say anything negative would just be being picky - we feel we made the right choice of where to stay in St Mawes.

      The staff was wonderful, they went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. great attention to details in every aspect.

      Sorry but the bed was quite lumpy.

    • Older travelers

      Great location, very helpful front desk team. Great views and excellent location

      Restaurant just did not live up tp expectation; main courses over cooked and really poor quality. Head waiter busy chatting up the feront desk staff to bother with quality of the restaurant.

      The views from our Premier Cottage room and from the restaurant, were excellent.

      A lovely homely atmosphere, very comfortable and exactly what we wanted. Cream tea was sublime and the jam the best I have ever tasted!

    • Older travelers

      It is in a wonderful location with the sea lapping against the walls below.

      I had stayed here 12 years ago and the quality was not as good. The room we were in needed redecorating as there were a lot of marks on the walls and the windows were very bad. Also the bathroom needed some attention. The breakfast was not brilliant with a poor selection of fruit and breads etc.The reception area needed improvement too. Apparently years ago film stars used to frequent this hotel but I don't think they would now! I would recommend this hotel for its unique position only but it could be brought back to its former glory with a little attention.Also some of the staff in the restaurant need to understand the english language.

      Idyllic location, wonderful food beautifully presented

      Felt the room needed updating, making use of the seaside location

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      We found the staff most attentive. The food was excellent, and the location very attractive.

      Parking was a minor irritant - there is no park at the hotel itself. The room we were in lacked wardrobe space, and was not best designed to give maximum space

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      The decor was tired and tatty just a little work would improve it enormously and as always the price of drinks is a rip off.

      Harbour view

      For the price of the room i expected much better. Room was so small and i wouldnt class this as a 2 star hotel.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      The hotel is comfortable the staff are friendly the food was good

      The bathrooms and bedrooms are a little in need of smartening up since our previous visits,and the soundproofing needs much to be desired

    • Older travelers
      6.2

      relaxing and having a drink on the terrace overlooking the sea.

      The lack of parking arrangements
