Just returned from a two night stay here in cosy room 4, where you sit in bed looking at the sea curling around St Clement's Isle and seagulls swooping above the Mousehole rooftops and chimney pots below. Some things that made it particularly pleasant for me were: comfortable bed, choice of interesting books - in fact the place is a joy for readers, books everywhere - a teapot and cafetiere on the tray, Roberts radio, interesting artwork and friendly staff. Breakfast was super, my favourite items being the natural yogurt, prunes, apricots and really nice muesli followed by their kedgeree with a poached egg or delicious smoked salmon with scrambled egg. With Radio 4 on and the paper it was home from home but without any work on my part. The public areas are informal and unpretentious, comfortably furnished with a good view through the garden to the sea. A lovely place to relax right in charming Mousehole and only a little over a mile's jog, walk, cycle or drive to the fascinating fishing port of Newlyn. In the other direction you have the charms of Lamorna Cove and the Minack theatre at Porthcurno.
