We keep coming back. This is such a restful hotel and is well positioned. The food is excellent and you are always made welcome. Try a cream tea, absolutely gorgeous. The Lizard is such an undiscovered area and long may it remain so. No visit to this hotel can pass without a mention of Tomas and his wife. Over the...

Coverack is gorgeous and the hotel is really well placed after a long days walk from The Lizard! An upgrade was provided when we checked in. Such a very warm and friendly check in. The view from our bedroom was picture postcard. The sound of the waves breaking on the beach could be heard. Magnificent views of the pretty harbour....

I'm reluctant to overdo my superlatives for this hotel simply because I'd like to think I wouldn't have any difficulty booking in next time I want to visit. However, I think the cat's out of the bag already! The accommodation, dining and hospitality were first class and the staff couldn't do enough to make our stay more comfortable. Thank you...

On arrival, we found that we had been upgraded to a Suite. This overlooked the bay and comprised a spacious bedroom, sitting room (both with flat - screen TV) and a newly refurbished bathroom with both shower and bathtub. We had booked on a dinner, bed & breakfast tariff and every meal we had was superbly cooked and presented. There...

The Bay is a comfortable family run period hotel on the seafront of quiet Coverack bay only a short distance from the beautiful Lizard Peninsula. We stayed in one of the small rooms at the top of the hotel which had lovely views and was close enough to the sea to hear the waves coming in at night with the...

We called in for a morning coffee with a view to possibly returning to stay. We were welcomed and could have coffee with our dog on the terrace but not indoors. It was a bit chilly so we went indoors. the coffee was average with standard shop biscuits ( £5 for the 2 of us which is fair). The hotel...

Stayed here for 1 night at the start of 8 days walking on the coastal path. Superb bay views. Nice garden for cream tea. Friendly reception. We were on DBB deal but you could mix and match your meal from different menus - however, you are asked to make your food choice well before evening meal time. Room on 2nd...

Seemed rather uninspiring on arrival, and the room was up two flights of stairs and rather claustrophobic, and took the full force of a South Easterly gale. Though on the Lizard one should expect weather. The service and quality of the food more than compensated for any negatives, and I was very impressed with the freshness and quality of the...

We had a great time here - admittedly helped by a complimentary upgrade to the fantastic harbour suite. Decent food - friendly staff - and judging by the way they seemed to know most of the other guests - some very loyal customers.
