The hotel is on a perfect harbour side location with fantastic views from the pleasant bar/lounge area. Our bedroom was a little disappointing - a very compact double (which sadly bore no resemblance to those shown on the hotel website) - but as this was a last minute booking our expectations weren't that high. What let this hotel down was the complete indifference (bordering on rudeness) of the staff manning the front desk (with the exception of the night porter who at least acknowledged our existence with a polite hello). Also found the waiters and barman to be polite and friendly enough - yet despite us passing by the reception staff at the front desk several times, not once did we receive any form of acknowledgement other than a cursory glance and a scowl. Think a brush up on customer service skills would be in order.
- 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
