Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Getting to the hotel was a maze of little roads but well worth it. The car park is up the hill just past the pull in area. I had a room downstairs which wasn’t huge but ideal for my needs. A tv and king sized bed, a writing desk and storage with hanging space as well as a hairdryer were provided. The room was very clean and you could smell that all of the crisp white bedding was fresh. There was also a tea and coffee making “station” which incorporated the kettle power and a little drawer where the teabags and coffee sachets were. 2 mugs and biscuits were also standard. The bathroom was huge with a triple sized shower which had 2 heads, it was easy to use and powerful. The toilet seat could have been soft close as a lot would expect. Shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and a shower cap were provided. The only thing missing was body lotion. The room I felt could do with a lick of paint as could the bathroom but it didn’t detract from my stay. The evening meal menu and the breakfast menu are very varied with ample choice, the food itself is served fresh and quality produce is used especially the Cornish breakfast, the sausage in particular was meaty and full of flavour. My only gripe is that they didn’t have any green tea which is quite a popular drink. All of the staff were very friendly and polite and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast waitress especially offered exceedingly good service. The location is great too with Launceton Castle ruins bring right next door and the town centre a 5 minute walk away.

The staff were all extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room was amazing! The building is old so the walls are thick, the curtains heavy and the furniture solid (even if the wardrobe door did creak - added to the character!) The breakfast was plentiful. We had dinner a couple of times in the five days we were there and the food was good. We were happy that no staff entered our room for the entire duration but we were aware that we could request the room to be serviced if we had wished to.

I was bought for Christmas some tickets to attend the gin tasting session run at the hotel which they call gin 101 and seeing as there is no time like a rainy January evening, we booked in for Saturday last.
The session started with learning about the history of gin, what it's base ingredients are and the variations that have emerged over the years. We tasted a wide range and styles which were explained and narrated expertly by Jack who really knows his gin! He was able to demonstrate how mixers and garnish can hugely affect the taste and drinking of gin. Towards the end of the session we tasted the two gins made at the hotel itself (very yummy) and got to see the still itself which is in the main bar!
Jack was welcoming, interesting and really welcomed our (slightly rowdy) group.
After the gin 101 session, and prompted by the seriously tasty canapes during the session, we ordered main courses (to soak up what turned out to have been rather a lot of gin, we didn't have to drink it all but hey). The food was really good and very reasonable prices. The chef had managed to provide dinner for us despite the large function happening downstairs and other diners in the restaurant.
I would highly recommend booking in for gin 101 - it is great fun and having been a gin drinker for many years, i learnt more than i thought i would! Thank you to Jack and the team at Eagle house :-)

I really wanted to give this hotel a good review, knowing it was such a local landmark and owned by a local family. The location and history is wonderful and it has so much potential to be something really special. But it seemed so sad, empty and desperate for a bit of love and care.
Our room was generally clean as long as you ignored the bathroom grouting and shower guard. The bed was comfortable. The tea and coffee was as basic as is possible without not bothering at all, which was generally how this hotel felt, like nobody was bothered. From the filthy carpets in the reception and hallways, door handles falling off, bland and boring room that was just crying out for a bit of something (a bedside lamp on both sides of the bed might have been a start, or even just a picture on the wall or a cushion on the bed?) to the fact that nobody could even be bothered to set the tables for breakfast (which came, a cup of luke-warm coffee and tiny glass of orange juice on a black plastic tray). The staff were really pleasant and friendly, just seemed to lack basic training or awareness. I was told when I asked to book a table for dinner that the restaurant was closed due to staff shortages so we went out for something to eat (very good Indian at the Sagor). When we got back at 9:30pm we went to get a drink in the bar, it was empty and being cashed up.
I checked twice, once when I booked and again when we checked in, if my husband could have something simple to eat at around 7am as he had to leave for work before breakfast officially started at 7:30 and was assured both times that he could have some cereal, but when the morning actually came there was nobody around. I also checked in advance if I could have gluten free toast with my breakfast and I got it, the toasted crusts from each end of the loaf, tough as old boots and practically inedible. No idea what happened to all the slices from the middle of the loaf. Maybe the staff just took an instant dislike to me as I questioned the room rate when we checked in which had been hiked up from what we had been quoted on the phone and the crusts were my punishment. It was just sad that such a lovely place should be so uncared for.
I guess there isn't much competition around locally, but I have had better and more characterful and certainly more professional stays in chain hotels for less than half the price. Considering the potential this hotel has, that's quite a poor comparison to have to make.

We visited with family for diner. Nicely presented dining room but that's where it ends. The service was both slow and extremely fast, There was a party in the fuction room which seemed to take the attention of the kitchen so the starters were a long time arriving but " our " mains were placed on the table before we had finished our first course, turned out to be someone elses order, the staff seemed under pressure. When our mains arrived it was no more than average pub style fare. Overall whilst not a disaster this not what we expected. Unfortunately delivery falling far short of aspirations

Stayed for one night as work took me to Launceston. Excellent service from the young man on reception / bar duty although on his own and busy with a party in the bar he was prompt and polite when I arrived. The food was good although could have been served on a hot plate as it did get cold rather quickly. I stayed in room 6 and would advise anyone over 6 foot, as I am, to be aware of the door as it requires a good duck to get through! The room was spotless as was the bed but a lot of stooping due to being in the eaves of the roof and the carpet could do with a clean or replacement as a little dirty in places. The bathroom is small and requires some acrobatics to use the toilet but again, spotlessly clean and the shower was amazing after a very long day!! Overall I'd highly recommend this hotel, yes it has some odd flaky paint on outer doors and tired carpetting but it's part of it's character! Great place and great staff!!

Fabulous hotel with views that calm the soul
We booked an extra night during our stay and upgraded our room for this time which had window seats on all 4 sash windows, ideal to watch the sun go down.
The bathroom was huge and well equipped with a bath and rainfall shower, while the food in the restaurant is well cooked and served with a smile.
The whole team at this hotel are committed to making your stay an enjoyable one.
I can't wait to see you all again.

Things got off to a bad start when, on arriving well after dark, with all the parking spaces outside full, my wife went to reception to ask where we could park. The young man on reception seemed totally incapable of giving coherent directions, just repeating over and over “Up there, it’s one way, if you get to the arch you’ve gone too far!” and pointing up a dark unlit narrow road between high stone walls. She is a very intelligent woman and used to run a large organisation – but because she is rather frail and clearly over 60, he seemed to think she was an idiot – whereas the fault lay entirely with him, being unable to give a coherent set of simple instructions. We checked in and were continuously referred to as “you guys”. If we are paying £150 a night for a room, we expect rather more professionalism and ... is “respect” too strong a word? … than this. The room was OK for the price, except that the bed had a hard wooden foot-board, and I could not stretch out properly. At 6’-2” I’m not unusually tall. Breakfast was good.

Booked to stay here for 2 nights whilst doing a whistle stop tour of castles in the area.
Reception was friendly, informative, efficient and thorough.
We were advised to book for our evening meal on both nights and we were delighted we did.
Our room was pretty basic for a standard room for £110 per night (with breakfast) and appeared to be more of a budget style room looking at the pictures on the web site but that said, it was clean and tidy, with a desk and wall mounted tv and a small closet, plenty big enough for my wife and I for 2 days/nights.
The bathroom was lovely and spacious with a huge walk in shower. Excellent!
The bed was very comfy and perfect for me and my bad back as it was quite firm.
Excellent pillows too.
Good tea and coffee making facilities with ample tea, coffee and milk sachets (replenished both days) along with 2 nice mini packs of biscuits.
Our room was cleaned and serviced both days we were here.
The restaurant was excellent.Fantastic food freshly cooked to order and plenty of choice as well.
Bar and serving staff were excellent both nights.
The bar area is an absolute joy to be in with a very light airy atmosphere and spectacular views out on the terrace area, where, as the weather was so gorgeous most of us sat outside after dinner to take advantage of the evening sun.
Breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious with sausage, bacon, fresh egg , mushroom, hash brown, beans and grilled tomato. Fresh coffee and tea and fruit juice are also available as well as continental breakfast if you desire.
Perfectly located at the top of the hill and just 150 metres from the castle it was in a prime location for our needs.
Thank you to all the staff for making our stay very enjoyable.
We will definitely return.

We treated ourselves to 2 nights at the hotel to celebrate a local wedding having not been away since before Covid and were disappointed. The service was very friendly though not always very efficient (long waits and only one person offered tea, no spoon with cereal etc). But the whole hotel is very shabby at the moment. I gather that there is a current refurbishment project which I must say can't come soon enough (why wasn't it done while the hotel was closed?). The outside has been repainted but inside is very dated and tired. We rejected the first room we were given (no offer of help with bags up 2 flights of stairs) as it was a gloomy attic room with flaking paint over the bed. There was only 1 other room available which was downstairs, next to the laundry - a soul-less room with a very very tired bathroom. The rooms are relatively cheap I suppose. I wish the hotel team luck with the internal refurbishment when it happens but I would check first that it's been done, or at least your room has had a refit.
