My husband and I spent three nights at the Old Coastguard earlier this month. We were in the St. Clements room, which was up quite a few flights of stairs! The room was spacious and had good views, but the carpet could have done with cleaning or replacing. The hotel was well located, and had a very good dining room. The staff was all very pleasant and helpful and made a very good dinner recommendation, for a restaurant in Newlyn.
The only complaint about the hotel was the lounge area is used both by residents and by the public, and it was often difficult to get a seat on couches or chairs in the lounge area. We were able to sit at the tables in the nearby dining room to have a before dinner drink, but would have preferred to sit in the lounge area, which wasn't always possible. It might have been nice to have an area just for residents, where a drink could be obtained. There was a shortage of parking in the hotel's lot, but they paid for us to pay to park in the lot next door, which wasn't a problem at all.
