The room was lovely but overpriced and not as large as others in the same price bracket. The views were stunning. The standard of cleanliness was excellent. The food was good but limited choice and the wine was expensive - £25 for an average bottle. Cream teas I thought were extortionate. Staff were very friendly and you were made welcome...

We returned for our third holiday at The Bay Hotel. Yet again everything was absolutely fantastic. Gina, her family and the other staff were all so friendly and work so hard to ensure everyone's stay is as perfect as it possibly can be (and to adapt to guests' individual preferences too). The views are stunning, the food amazing and the...

This is now our third visit to Coverack and the Bay Hotel and once again it was so worth the wait. We have raved about the Bay Hotel to anyone who'll listen and as a result my cousin and his wife decided that they'd have to have to accompany us on our latest visit. The first morning, after my normal...

Thank you for your lovely review. It's a real treat to be able to request a lobster for a guest and know that you can watch it being caught to order straight out of the Bay, right in front of you..Zero food miles!

This was our first overnight stop after walking from Lizard. Brilliantly positioned right on the trail and with amazing views, it is a very well maintained hotel with very friendly 'staff'. Our room at the top was quite small but immaculately clean. Dinner in the evening was very tasty (I chose scallops followed by Cornish steak & kidney pie, both...

We first visited the Bay Hotel about 5 years ago, and was blown away by the whole experience. We vowed to return one day. This week, whilst on holiday from Kent, we got the opportunity! We only went for dinner, but were made to feel just as welcome as the guests staying there. After taking our time to review the...

A friend and I stayed at this hotel in early June this year. We have, in the past, stayed in several 5 star hotels but this place has exceeded them all. The reasons: The warmth and friendliness of Gina and her family who run it first and foremost. The welcome and service are a prefect blend of attentiveness and respect...

Just returned home from yet another wonderful weeks stay at the Bay. Gina, Ric and staff are so good, you're looked after the moment you arrive, and the food that they serve is fabulous. We have been holidaying at the Bay for fifteen years now and it is always superb.
