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.

Just a one night stay for us. Room 1 is small as is the shower room with exposed stonework. Can’t expect anything else in such an old building dating back to the 1400’s and the owners have made good use of the space available. Bed was a bit creaky and you can burn your leg on the heated towel rail when using the toilet if not careful but apart from that the room was comfortable.
Breakfast choices are left at the bar the night before and are prepared fresh when you come down. Food was excellent. We had booked an evening meal but due to staff shortages there are no lunchtime or evening meals on Monday or Tuesday at the moment.
We enjoyed our stay at The Olde Malthouse Inn and would not hesitate to book here again.

I stayed for four nights with my small dog. Right from the moment I walked in until I left, I receive fantastic service. All the staff without exception were friendly and helpful – particularly appreciated when you’re travelling alone. Nothing was too much trouble including bring my case down on the last morning and putting it in the car for me. And the staff are great dog lovers too.I had the small double (room 8) which I actually found more spacious than I had expected. The downside is the limited natural light – but all of that is reflected in the description & the pricing of the room. So overall I’d say it was great value and I certainly wouldn’t have a problem having the same room again. The courtesy tray was very generous but it would’ve been nice to have had some fruit / herbal teas – perhaps Chamomile and mint tea. I’m sure I could’ve asked for them but as I travel with my own teabags it wasn’t a problem for me - it was just it’s just a thought for future guests.

Excellent team at the Malthouse. Nothing too much trouble. Had a Coeliac within our party and was fully catered for- kitchen had a separate gluten free fryer to avoid contamination. Highly recommend, will definitely return 👍

My husband and I had dinner here during the Covid19 Pandemic. We turned up early and had a drink outside before being shown to our table. After being shown to our table and being told by the waiter that he would be back to take our order... we were left to sit there for about 25 minutes before another group of people were shown to their seats. Soon after that a waiter passed us and went to take their order. When the waiter passed us to take the other tables orders to the kitchen, my husband stopped him and asked if he would take our order. Shortly after taking our order a waitress came with two sets of cutlery nicely wrapped up in serviettes. I told her the I had ordered soup so she took one set away and returned to our table with a single spoon without a serviette and placed it straight onto the dirty table. Bearing in mind we are in the middle of a Pandemic I was very stressed and upset but I hid my feelings because I suffer with anxiety and depression. My husband gave me a tissue from his bag and I wiped the spoon the best I could. When the soup arrived it looked fine but it only came with one half of a slice of bread and there wasn't any butter offered to me either. The soup was bitter and to be honest just tested like tomato puree. I had 4 or 5 spoons of it and left the rest as shown in the picture.

When we were ready to pay our bill we were given a bill that didn't include the government "Eat Out to Help Out" discount so we had to request that to be deducted from our bill.

In the end I left in tears after being approached by a different waiter when he noticed I was writing this review.

Overall, I felt the service was poor and it left me feeling my evening out had been spoilt.

Needless to say, we won't be returning

Lovely old building with so much character. The staff were friendly especially the manager. The only downside is the rooms are tiny (to be expected in an old building) and the bed was so uncomfortable and creaky :( we were glad to only have to spend one night in it. If you changed the bed it would of been a much better experience. We had breakfast for a vegetarian and a vegan and vegetarian one looked okay although only got given only singular tiny mushroom lol - would just advise for vegans or dairy intolerance to have some flora and alpro soya handy! Overall the location was amazing and realistically when you’re in tintagel you don’t spend much time in your hotel room!

My fiancé and I, family and friends stayed here this May as we got married in Saint Materiana’s church on the top of the cliff at Tintagel. A beautiful church by the way and well worth a visit.

As we pretty much took up the whole hotel we got a good deal on the rooms and Kat and Jamie bent over backwards to accommodate us. It would be out of our price range at any other time but being a wedding and right next to the church it was fantastic.

On the 2 nights we were there both managers were in attendance at varying times and I honestly don’t know what I would have done without Jamie. He made sure we had everything we needed, which was everything I had forgotten throughout our stay such as the flowers, tin openers, an ironing board etc. Every time we got flustered and ran down to the bar for help, he was on it without a second thought all the way up until my partner got into the wedding car. Calming me down each time I looked like I was going to pass out, looked after the flowers for us as we had to pick them up the day before and just all those little things that normally get missed were attended to.

These guys really know how to look after you and their service is impeccable. I would not hesitate to stay there again if I could afford a weekend. As I said it is very pricey but you get what you pay for and they did not disappoint. The breakfast there was very tasty, a decent size and very well presented. We ran out of tea and just as we were going to ask for more, Jamie was there with another pot! Kat was in and out like there was a fire underneath her and nothing was too much bother. Even with lots of “can I have that without that and this with this” etc etc. she was on it and both of them looked like they really enjoy their work.

As some other reviews state, yes the rooms are small (bar the garden suite) but at the end of the day the place was built in the 1300s when we were a lot smaller and probably didn’t have king sized beds!

For the room they have had to work with it is spot on and I would rather deal with a smaller room than have this place get knocked down and turned into flats (which I believe was going to happen before the current owner stepped in, watch Four in a Bed on Channel 4 catch up)

The cleanliness was second to none, and we were very impressed with the array of drinks available in the rooms. The beds were comfy and the showers were powerful but make sure you don’t turn the heat up too much.

There’s a car park with one space for each room which is a god send in Tintagel. There’s some lovely Scotch behind the bar and they keep their beer very well. The waiting and bar staff are polite, friendly and helpful. You will more than likely need to book as even though the food is on the pricier side, there’s a reason for that. It’s lovely and cooked by a damn good chef, so again, you really do get what you pay for and their dining spots seem to be very much in demand.

As another review pointed out it is a very small bar area but it is more of a restaurant than a pub so I don’t see the issue.

Overall we had a fantastic time here and I cannot fault the managers and their staff or the hotel itself. They went above and beyond to make our stay special and that just made our wedding all the more memorable.

Thanks again guys, we hope to see you again for a drink when we’re down this August so keep that aged single malt in stock!

We stayed one night at The Olde Malthouse Inn during a hike of the South West Coast Path. The inn is conveniently located near the path and housed in a building stemming from the 14th century. Our room was very tastefully decorated and neat. The only downside is the very noisy lifting/pumping station in the bathroom, which kicks into action whenever someone uses the toilet. Service was really good, however, with the staff being very courteuos and attentive. A highlight was the exceptional food (e.g. Persian Spiced Free-Range Chicken) that we can wholeheartedly recommend.

Just recently returned from a well earned 3 night stay here. Prior to arrival I wasn't sure what to expect, I have heard so many stories from different places but I am one to make my own mind up, regardless of good or bad reviews.

I have been here before in the past but for a meal and drink, the place is lovely, a great little place.

on arrival I was a little early but went in and asked if I could leave my car in the pub car park so I could have a wonder round Tintagel until check in. They seemed very busy but the (I believe manager) guy still took the time to greet me and tell me yes, that was fine. On my first impression at this moment I was happy to see that they took the covid/social distance and safety very seriously so my mind was put to rest knowing all was going to be fine.

On check in I was greeted by the same guy from earlier, very polite and friendly. I asked if it was ok for a light breakfast in the room in the morning as I didn't think I would make it down due to not going to bed since Thursday evening and heading down through the night. He was more than happy to offer this, in fact as arranged the night before, he arrived at 10am with my breakfast, I am actually glad he did or I think I would have still been asleep into the afternoon, I was greatful for the knock on the door at 10am, even though the poor guy was left standing outside for a few minutes until I registered what the knock was, Sorry!

I was showed to my room and on route he explained all the covid stuff to me, one way system, follow the line on the ground, where breakfast will be served etc. Everything was explained fully.

The room itself was a single room, small, clean and cosy, just what I wanted. The only part of the room I wish was slightly bigger was the shower but hey, it's a single room and this was not an issue, it's not like I was going to try and sleep in there!

Took my a while to get used to a single bed but certainly enjoyed my first night sleep, well actually I enjoyed my 3 night stay and defo will use this lovely pub/bnb on my next visit and will defo opt for this room again if its available.

If you are looking to stay in Tintagel, defo look at staying here, not sure what the other rooms are like but if they are anything like this little room the I am sure you will enjoy the stay. As for the pub/restaurant, sadly I didn't use it on this occassion, only for breakfast which was very tasty!

Room Tip: If you are traveling alone and not bothered by a single bed this is a great little room.

Staff are friendly and work really hard. Food was nice but do book. Room was very small (room 6) and was next to the stairs so was very noisy and made the dog bark which was stressful as I didn't want him disturbing anyone. The shower was so small that I often bumped my arms on the wall and shelves. They could have provided a shower cap as it was almost impossible not to get your hair wet. The sink in the bedroom wasn't ideal. I think maybe there should have been a rug or carpet on the floors in the rooms and hallway to address the noise. The bed was the softest I've known which sounds lovely but between that and the noise it meant 3 sleepless nights. The breakfast is very nice but not much choice which isn't ideal for more that one or two nights. The only cereal choice is crunchy nut cornflakes which is a strange choice! It's more of a restaurant than a pub so you can't easily relax and have a drink if you're not eaten as all tables are used for restaurant. There are other pubs close by though so not a major issue. We tried to book in December and it would have been £90 a night but couldn't speak to anyone as they were closed until Feb so the price had increased to :£140 a might which is very steep for what you get. Definitely wouldn't stay again for that price.

This is a lovely old Inn which is centrally located in Tintagel, very close to the footpath to the Castle. Our bedroom and bathroom were small (sort of expected in such an old building), but had everything we needed. The breakfast was lovely and pre-ordered the night before, although one small tip - toast doesn’t appear on the order form, so just write it in.
The staff were most welcoming and friendly as well, so all in all highly recommended.
