The hotel is in a lovely position in a very quiet harbour, although the downstairs of the hotel has obviously been redecorated in a modern way, not all the rooms have. We were put into room 114 which had a big gap in the French doors letting in a draft and the room looked a bit tired. Trying to get warm decided to have a hot shower but unfortunately the shower adjustments needs work on it and I could only get warm water which then turned cold. We were moved to room 120 which is a superior room which was very nice, but the corridor going to it was very disappointing, with damp on walls and plaster peeling off not what you expect on the way to a superior room. The whole hotel was cold which did not help the ambiance of the place. It should have little things like candles in the evening in the lounge because it is very dark and uninviting. The food was very average as well. We have stayed in several Coast and Country hotels and have found this one very disappointing. I would like to ask why, if the hotel was half empty they put you into a substandard room when they could put some people into the superior rooms, guests would then say what a lovely surprise upgrading us I might come again if that is the service I get, it does not take much working out.
- 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
