Came here on the way back from Bodmin Jail (as a visitor, not inmate! See my separate review) It was surprisingly busy here, and we struggled to find a parking place. We found the museum enthralling and were impressed by the exhibits within. Equally impressive were the various on-site facilities such as the farm shop. The little ten minute film... More

Great location and great food. Visited for a meal as travelling home. My children loved it and seeing the pirates and finding out some history.

I had always wanted to visit Jamaica Inn after reading the book years ago, the views across the moors are outstanding, and the Inn from the outside looks exactly like the photos you see. The old bar is lovely with a nice roaring fire and is as you would have imagined, the only downside is the restaurant part which resembles... More

After having read Daphne duMaurier's novel I wanted to see the real inn. We visited on a sunny day in April, so obviously the atmosphere was a lot better than it was in the book, but still, driving towards it by means of the little roads (we didn't use the motorway but drove around the lake) definitely gave you a...

We stayed here to get a feel for the atmosphere and we were not disappointed. Our room was furnished in period. The inn itself is full of little nooks and there is a lot to look at. Breakfast was buffet style and very well presented as well as being delicious. Evening meal was waiter service and well cooked even though... More

Jamaica Inn is steeped in a deep smuggling history and has a fantastic museum on site that hosts various pieces from across history in the region. The bar and food are both top rate with having their own branded Ale on tap and hot food served throughout the day. Free jukebox and pool table are also available and well-stocked gift... More

Having read Daphne du Maurier's book Jamaica Inn at school, I definitely wanted to visit when we were in the area. My husband wasn't keen but indulged me!! It was a hit for both of us because I could do the touristy bit while he waited for me in the bar nursing a rather excellent pint of ale!! We both... More

We stumbled on this place after visiting Dozmary Pool, located nearby. Still a functioning inn with restaurants and a pretty busy gift shop filled with Jamaica Inn merchandise. There is nothing particularly special about the location, but a must stop and see attraction for die-hard fans of the novel.

We have all heard the name of Jamaica Inn and it makes a great little stop off on the way to or from Cornwall. Its a hotel, pub, restaurant and Ghost haunt as well as being a splendid farm shop selling predominantly Cornish produce. Its a good place to pick up some gifts on your way home. The staff are...
