We booked this holiday in January 2009 as it was a working fishing port which my husband has a keen interest in being an ex fisherman. In this respect it met all our expectations. As we arrived late at night we did not meet Joy until the next morning at breakfast, where we were warmly met by Joy and other guests. For breakfast there was fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, full english breakfast or any combination thereof. Also tea, fresh coffee, toast either white or brown bread with a choice of preserves. This standard maintained for the full 10 days of our holiday. The first thing we noticed when we entered our room was the panoramic views of Newlyn harbour. There was a king sized bed which was spotless and very comfortable. There was a washhand basin and shower in our room and the dedicated toilet facility for our room was four steps across the corridor. there was personal touches such as shower gel, hand soap and paper tissues that were replaced when required. Guests are also encouraged to use the kitchen facilities downstairs for tea/coffee, also guests can bring in take-away meals. Joy was helpful and informative on places of interest locally which helped us to plan our daily activities.
As we do not drive we found Mousehole and Penzance within comfortable walking distance and the local bus service for further afield allowed us to expand our range. We enjoyed some of the local pubs and restaurants and met with a warm welcome from local people anywhere we went, especially the Fishermans Rest where we were made to feel welcome, comfortable and included. Overall we had a brilliant holiday and Joy Collinson who we feel is now a friend was an excellent hostess who we hope to see again next year.
