Cornwall Reports

Camelford, Cornwall

Review of Camelford by tony on July 1st, 2010
Stayed in a lovely holiday village called Inny Vale at a cottage called Chynance, and was blown away by the facilities there. The owners have really done everything they can to make a small family welcome. Tennis on site, internet wifi, and a quiet friendly save place to play.

Charlestown, Cornwall

Review of Charlestown by Stephen Kearsey on March 18th, 2010
My wife, my sister and I visited Charlestown in June 2008. We had booked a canal-boat week but the floods obliterated the canals and the owners could not locate the canal-boat. As a consequence we visited Cornwall and Charlestown and more specifically, Charlie's Coffee House (we hope that it still exists. We were delighted with the greeting, the service, the freshly baked scones, delicious coffee and then the owner gave us a copy of an Eva Cassidy CD that he had been playing gently in the background and we had commented on how we had enjoyed the music. Throughout our 3 week trip we had not experienced such warm hospitality, excellent food and coffee and we wish the owners evry success.

Fowey, Cornwall

Review of Fowey by Glen Burnell on April 17th, 2007
What a lovely little place - quite unspoilt, and only 10 miles from Eden Project. We stayed at the Marina hotel, nice but the rooms are tiny and for the price not at all value for money. Plus the shower was terrible.

Review of Fowey by Andrew & Gilly on October 30th, 2006
We had lunch at the King of Prussia on 25 Oct 2006. I had the Steak and Ale Pie and Gilly had the Fish of the day. Excellent meal and all home cooked. In fact best meal we had all the time we were on holiday. The young lady that served us was very pleasant and gave us some very good information about the locality. We will definately visit the King of Prussia again.

Goonhavern, Cornwall

Review of Goonhavern by gill on June 5th, 2007
5.6.07 Last week was the first time my family and I had ever been to Goon Havern. We had booked an holiday at the local haven campsite. Unforunatley it was too windy for us to erect our tent, and without going into too much detail, we did not get any help or info, from the receptionist on the site as to where else we could stay.All she would tell us was that there was not any room there in a static caravan! We were all very upset as we did not want to return home, but we were worried that we would get the same sort of responce from anyone else we asked for help and info from. Anyway, we decided to try once more and went to a camp site where the owner could not have been more friendly and helpful, he gave us a list of people who might be able to help us, and eventually we settled into a cottage, where the owners were exceptionally nice and welcoming. All in all we then found Cornwall and Goonhavern to be very friendly , and we ended up feeling at home there. This holiday had the potential of being a distater, but turned into one of the best holidays we have ever had. Thank you to the true residents of Goonhavern for showing us such a warm and friendly welcome.

Harlyn Bay, Cornwall

Review of Harlyn Bay by peter on January 1st, 2010
my wife and i stayed at the harlyn inn overnight last year (2008) to break up christmas holiday and to check out our holiday destination for the following year, we picked the harlyn inn because it advertised dogs welcome, we found the staff to be so friendly, polite and helpfull, the room was clean, tidy and perfectly adequate for the two of us. we had the use of a colour tv, on suite bathroom and shower, tea and coffee provided with kettle in the room and adequate storage space for clothing etc. the beach is only 100 yards away and totally dog friendly, as evening rolled in we decided to sample the inn for a drink and something to eat, we were glad we did as the food was excellent and they have a good selection of drink to cater for many tastes, we found the bar to have a few local people enjoying the evening who all made us and the other guests feel welcome, as i said that was 2008, we again visited the inn dec 29 2009 (room one) and again we were made to feel at home by everyone. as a result we are already looking forward to going again in 2010. i would certainly reccomend the inn to anyone who likes to feel at home where they stay.

Review of Helston by Lorina Misquita on October 23rd, 2007
The Angel Hotel is the only Hotel in the main centre of helston and dates back 450 years. It has its own well in the bar with 13 bedrooms. It processes the mayors banqueting function room. This is certainly the only place to stay in Helston.

Looe, Cornwall

Review of Looe by John Holmes on July 4th, 2012
Visited Looe whilst on holiday last week. Found it unattractive, with expensive car parking and lots of buildings that were in obvious need of re-painting and repair, certainly not a pretty, nor a quaint, little village. On a sunny evening, with calm conditions, the pier was closed and chained-off to the public at 7:00pm and I shan't be going there again, nor will I recommend it to anyone wanting a clean and pleasing place to stay, eat or relax. Extremely disappointing.

Review of Looe by phil. wales on July 2nd, 2010
been for the 3rd time and still enjoy it.the boat ride around st georges island,excellent. the walks are a must. if you like fishing,the 2hr fishing trip is a must do. polperro a nice little fishing village too visit. food in the local restraunts excellent. will be back next year,weather good,locals polite and helpful,what more can one ask.

Review of Looe by ANN HUDD on May 17th, 2006
Looe is a wonderful family friendly town and surrounding area. The Salutation Inn sreves wonderful bar meals with an excellent service.The portbyhan hotel good place to stay with really good evening entertainment.I stay at the trelay farmpark campsite with a touring caravan and also in the static vans .The site is the most cleanest and well kept site I have ever stayed on. Also excellent owners who are always ready to give assistance and are very welcoming and friendly. Looe is an excellent base to stay to visit any part of Cornwall also near to Devon.

Menheniot, Cornwall

Review of Menheniot by Janice Schneider on February 16th, 2010
We went to the White Heart Hotel in Menheniot as a dinner party of 7 and would like to say what a wonderful meal we had, really hearty portions for hungry visitors and a warm friendly welcome. Excellent service a very enjoyable evening. Would recomend. Some colleagues stayed for a night and said they plan to book again- lovely atmosphere and very comfortable Inn. Staff were great, really helpful.

Review of Menheniot by Mr Livingston on June 13th, 2009
I was also staying here for a course in Liskeard with the previous reviewer. I can only reinforce her comments. How anyone can run this place and overlook the basics required to make this a pleasant place to stay is beyond me. As our taxi pulled up to drop us off on the first nights stay we were met by two huge buckets of sand either side of the entrance door full of cigarette butts. We are not talking about a few, we are talking about hundreds in this bucket. What effort would it take to remove these on a regular basis. My room was dirty. You could have written your name in the dust on all the furniture. There was no hairdryer, no iron, no welcome book, and the only toileteries were one tiny slither of soap. If you intend to drink in the bar until late into the evening you will be fine. If however like me you had to get up at a resonable hour and be alert the next day, you had no hope staying here. My room was directly under the bar and sleep was impossible. You might as well set your bed up in the bar as there was absolutely no sound proofing between the bedrooms and the bar. I was also disturbed to find absolutely no instructions or directions in the event of a fire in my room. I would have expected that as a bare minimum. The food was bog standard bar food, certainly nothing special and it was only the fact that I was stuck in this hotel with no transport to take me anywhere that forced me to eat here. The only saving grace was the staff that they employ. The owners certainly dont deserve such lovely staff and they must have to work really hard to try and make the best of a bad job. The hotel owner who is in his late 40's and his late teenage partner are extremely rude and unhelpful. They have a very laid back attitude where if your not happy they simply tell you to go else where as he told another customer while in my presence. Would I recommend anyone to stay here - never. I also went home at the weekend knowing that I was booked in to stay in this hotel again on Monday. I also made the choice of commuting each day rather than face walking back into that place.

Review of Mithian by lee pullen on April 17th, 2009
stayed at rebeccas cottage few years ago which was an absolute delightful and charming place to stay,also made friends with chris and dee who were landlord/lady of miners arms,again a very interesting and fascinating pub which when i was there felt a certain friend there who could not be seen,the food there was second to none,beautiful.everytime i visit cornwall,roughly twice a year (if i was rich enough id be living there) i always pop in the miners.the village is beautiful,the people brilliant and very friendly and is well worth a visit.

Review of Pentewan by Barbara Parker on February 26th, 2007
We're just about to book this site again - we just keep going back! It's a very relaxed atmosphere with plenty of room between vans and as its a very flat site suits my husband who is partially disabled. We just love it!

Saltash, Cornwall

Review of Saltash by JG on August 24th, 2010
Very disappointed with Crylla Cottages and cannot understand the good reviews and awards. The noisy/busy A38 road is too close and actually passes over the site, "Valley View Cottages" means views of 40 ft high Leylandii trees and non existent views to rear are of a steep bank a few feet from the windows, childrens toys are mostly broken or missing pieces, gardens to the rear are too steep and not suitable for young people or people with breathing difficulties (which they dont tell you until you get there). You have to drive everywhere from there unless you walk alongside the A38. Sofas and armchairs were stained and dirty. It all looks great on the website, but we were not happy there. Staff are mostly friendly however.

St Merryn, Cornwall

Review of St Merryn by elaine mclellan on August 18th, 2006
I visited st merryn this july(2006)and want to thank all the st merryn people who were so good to us.We came down for a week from glasgow.My 4 children and I were really looking forward to our holiday as i'd been to cornwall 20 years ago and thought i'd landed in heaven, it is so beautiful.unknowingly we'd booked a caravan that wasn't meant to be let to the general public the guy was trying to con the site owners by letting it and collecting loads of money.The actual caravan was so dirty a pig couldn't have lived in it,we couldn't even eat in it as we'd have caught food poisoning.We were really upset and very hungry with no chance of eating.Then the great people of st merryn stepped in and helped us. We'd like to say a big thank you to some people ,sorry I don't know who they are but they'll know.THANK YOU, to the shop owner/manager at maribou holiday park for making the children something to eat and cheering us up (his Dad was scottish and in the Navy),the bar manager (originallyfrom Inverness)and the local chinese delivery guy who gave us a lift and made sure we got up the road safely,the lady at st merryn stores who very kindly let us watch dvd's at the caravan to give the children something to do at night,a nice family from wolverhampton? who made us cups of tea,THANK YOU TO ALL YOU GOOD PEOPLE.st merryn is a lovely place beautiful beaches nearby, nice and peaceful.I would recommend this place any day and if you receive the kind of cornish welcome which was given to us,then you'll have a holiday to remember' thanks again st merryn.

Townshend, Cornwall

Review of Townshend by Thomas Dobson on September 9th, 2006
Townshend is a quaint little Cornish village situated near the river Hayle. With stunning scenery and not too far from Hayle, this is a perfect realxing place. A great place for anyone wanting to vist local points of interest as Goldolphin house is just only down the road. It is perfect for walks as Goldolphin Hill offers stunning views of near by villages; Carlean, Sithney and Helston. A perfect week-end break!

Truro, Cornwall

Review of Truro by Dr shahab Hussain on February 21st, 2008
Surely the friendliest golf club in Cornwall. Very laid back atmosphere. Has moved away from the snobbery and narrowmindedness of many of its competitors. Makes a beginner very welcome (which i was when i joined.) Nice little course too, set in beautiful parkland, and extremely varied. I would fully recommend a bite to eat in the restaurant after a round, and a beer at the bar with the boys. A must visit for any golfing enthusiast in Cornwall. p.s. I'm now a member at the Marriot golf hotel and course at Hollins hall, West Yorkshire. A long championship course, but can honestly say that Killiow is more challenging. Dr Shahab Hussain.
