“Stunning Rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2011

We spent a long weekend here in May and this is the perfect place to stay in Cornwall. Only a half hour walk to Mousehole one way or to Penzance the other. Our room was stunning showing that a lot of care and attention had been taken in choosing the decor. This artistic/contemporary flare runs through the whole premises. Breakfast was also first class with plenty of fresh, organic choices to choose from with a great selection of delicious tropical fruit. As for the car park problem! After reading reviews, we took our bus passes and left the car in the car park for the £6.60 for 24 hrs. All the car parks in Cornwall are expensive and we found the bus services in that area are excellent. Next year we are thinking of returning by train and leaving the car at home!

We stayed 2 nights at the Smugglers (HARVEY) and it was exactly what we needed, a place with comfortable,quiet and extremely clean environment. We would come back to this hotel again and i must say the bed was extremely comfy maybe thats why we missed breakfast during our stay :-)
We found the location convinient for us.

I did not get to stay here as it is mentioned that parking is near, that is at the bottom or the top of a hill. Not somewhere that is accessable to someone with a # spine who can not walk hills. I am sure the inside is as lovely as everyone says. But as the owner objected to my saying i could not stay there and it should be cleary spelt out, shee told me I was a nasty lady and to leave which I had intended doing any way.

smugglersnewlyn, Owner at The Smugglers, responded to this review, 22 April 2011
I am sorry that this guest did not choose to stay with us, we do state clearly that we do not have on site parking. If this guest suffers from a condition that restricts them from climbing hills then perhaps they should have telephoned ahead to clarify the parking situation before they booked. The booking was made on Friday for arrival Sunday which suggests to me that the booking was made in a hurry and suitable research was not made by the guest to ensure that this property was suitable for them. The guest informed me that she would not be staying and accused me of false advertising she was very offensive towards me, I was not going to tolerate this, as this is my home.

we stayed at this hotel with my in-laws, they had the ground floor room we had the room above them, the rooms were very nice, clean comfortable and well appointed. the location was great close to many other seaside towns like St Ives etc. although it has no parking the car park was just a short walk away and only cost £1.40 for an overnight stay. the owners are very friendly and so helpful with advice. we could not have wished a better place to stay it was a real 5 star experience.

We only ate at the restaurant so cannot comment on the rooms.

The food was exceptionally good and fresh with good sized portions too.
Prices too seemed reasonable.

The staff were very helpful and friendly.
We shall be going back but hope to be able to sit in a window seat to get a better view of the harbour.
