I have just returned from a four night stay with my mum. We felt the cost of the stay was really good value for money. I would like to congratulate the staff for their welcoming nature, especially in the restaurant and bar. As a vegetarian, I was very impressed with the variety of food available. Breakfast was delicious, hot and a credit to the chef (loved the veg sausages). This is an idyllic location with lots to see and do in the area. A walk to the castle is a must, with spectacular views.
There are some things the hotel management could do to improve the hotel. It is obvious that the hotel has had some refurbishment in the form of the lovely dining room with its stunning views. However, if I were to be picky, the room did smell a bit musty. There was some mould above the main window probably due to it being an end room. The lights were very dim and not good for reading, the same could be send for the main light. The bathroom was clean and the shower had plenty of hot water. A few things may be considered - possibly allocating some soap or given the option of a small pack to purchase? Towels were a little thin. Unfortunately, I have been watching the hotel inspector and naturally assess the room. I would definitely upgrade to a superior room with a sea view and I do think that the hotel with a little more work could be even better. All in all a good experience and a beautiful part of the country.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Where the Rivers' Fal and Percuil meet to join the open sea, St Mawes boasts the perfect picture postcard retreat and at the heart of the village, right on the quay you will find The Ship and Castle Hotel. Once The Ship and Castle Inn, and a warren of small fishermen's cottages (remnants of which can still be seen at the rear of the existing building) The Ship and Castle is now a 54 bedroom hotel with all the charm and character one would expect for its location. Our bar and lounges offer the perfect location for a peaceful day in St Mawes watching the world go by, or enjoying a traditional Cornish Cream Tea. We have a selection of sea view rooms which understandably are in high demand and are well recommended to make your stay that little bit more special. ... more less
