This is the most beautiful and friendliest Guest House we have stayed in and we are world travellers. The family is so welcoming and the home is spectacular in its beauty, elegance and comfort. The breakfast menu was absolutely fantastic. Our room was so comfortable, lovely view across to the harbour. No way is it "stuffy" - it is old...

What a wonderful stay. Friendly attentive couple, lovely breakfasts and a room with a view to if not die for then stay and look at forever. Some evenings we just watched the sea and the boats bobbing about in the bay. Best entertainment! Would stay here again in a heartbeat. The owners were so friendly and knowledgeable about the local...

The Mount Royal exceeded expectations. Good location, fantastic views and the breakfast was excellent. We had a ground floor room overlooking the sea and St Michael's Mount which even covered in sea mist looked mystical. Very easy access from both the bus and train stations. The staff are brilliant and Poppy the cat is a real sweetie, very open to...

We stayed for three nights prior to sailing to the Isles of Scilly. The building is beautiful and the decor exquisite. Great for parking if you have a car. Bathroom in our room needed a bit of an update. Our room had a great sea view and the binoculars added a nice touch. Breakfasts were great and made to order...

We chose Mount Royal for its location and parking availability, but we were more than in love with the hotel in itself. The owners are very friendly people, and the rooms are beautifully decorated, charming and clean. It's worth investing in a room with a sea view as the view is truly beautiful - you can see from St Michael's...

While my wife and I chose Mount Royal primarily for its proximity to the railway station, we were ultimately very pleased with our choice for many additional reasons. Our room was compact but with adequate storage space, the bed was comfortably firm, and both the room and en-suite bathroom were kept spic and span throughout our four-day stay. Our hosts,...

I loved staying at the Mount Royal, from the second we arrived it just had a lovely, welcoming charm. It is within easy walking distance of town and had parking. We didn't realise that a cooked breakfast was included in the cost which was a great bonus (and it was delicious! Fresh and with exceptional service!). To our happy surprise,...

Mount Royal is a lovely place, well maintained, comfortable and very welcoming. The breakfast really is fabulous, and served in a lovely dining room overlooking the bay, white table cloth & silver tea/coffee service etc. Hosts very well informed about the area and only too willing to offer really useful suggestions about restaurants, places to visit etc. Will definitely stay...
