“BEAUTIFUL LOCATION, FRIENDLY VIBE!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

We have stayed at this old pub many a time as a family and with friends in a big group. The pub has various rooms available as well as three apartments beside the pub which house (I believe) 4-6 people in each. They are well equipped and to a good standard. Our family room this time was very comfortable, a good size, plenty of tea/coffee making facilities, good sized shower room and views over the sea! Very comfortable bed, warm and cosy. The restaurant is modern (refurbished within the last few years) or you can eat in the pub too. Good choice of food. Can thoroughly recommend to all!! Furnishings a little dated - walls and carpets could be modernised to improve it even further but the staff's laid back and carefree attitude more than make up for that. Home from home I say.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view!

What a transformation since I last stayed her about 4 years ago.

The pub itself has retained all of its character and charm and still does heavenly food at down to earth prices.

Meanwhile, the rooms are as contemporary and well designed as you'd expect from a top modern hotel.

The breakfast was up there too. There was nothing lacking at all and I couldn't believe the amount of fresh food on offer.

I couldn't fault this place in any way.

I was constantly surprised by just how well everything was done. All credit to the management and the rest of the team. They were outstanding!

Located on the “sea front” at Sennen Cove, the olde Success Inn is hard to miss as you come off the coastal path from either Pendeen or Porthcurno. Commanding a magnificent view of the beach and the ocean, to not ensure you have an ocean view would be a shame. We stayed in No 12 – top of the Inn, with commanding views over the beach and the ocean. While we were never able to get the Wi-Fi in our room from the reception and lounge area of the Inn, we were not bothered sitting back with a glass of wine, windows open, listening and watching the ocean and the beach.
Large king bed was comfortable and clean and allowed for a wonderful sleep, the bathroom had shower/bath with plenty of hot water and heated towel rack. There was also full tea & coffee service, two tea cups however no real glasses….and in a pub at that…tsk tsk!!
The pub down below is a welcome stop for a Cornish Ale and a glass of wine – we did try the food however the fish & chips nor the steak & ale pie failed to excite us. The breakfast in the morning however was a welcome site, full spread of cold cereals yogurt etc with breads and jam’s/marmalade to fuel another day on the Coastal Trail, the full English was very tasty too.
We found the Inn staff, helpful, engaged, confident and happy to be of service, the Inn on the other hand we found to be a little tired and could certainly do with a paint through and a weak or two with a handful of handy people to fix the “little” things that are starting to show.

Room Tip: get a room with Ocean/Beach view

One night only on a jaunt around the Southwest. NIce large room with excellent dual views of the sea. Come of the room decor a bit tired but you are staying in a Pub, did not detract from our stay as it was spotlessly clean and comfortable.

Meal in the atmospheric bar was excellent and all the staff were brilliant and friendly. Right on the beach in Sennen Cove in October during a stormy night! Cannot have everything as we were kept awake by the storm rattling the old sash windows... Small price to pay for a enjoyable stay.

I come from the Sennen cove area so love coming back to the hotel on a regular basis
The improvements to the building have made every visit even more enjoyable. The new loos bar the bar are a super addition. As always good food, a friendly welcome clean comfortable rooms all add to an excellent visit. The only down side is parking you will see when you visit but I park and walk so not a problem once I have a space. I have been coming to stay for many many years. I am already looking forward to my next visit

Room Tip: The smoking area can be noisy in the evenings so rooms higher or front see facing if you want to go...

This is a lovely old Inn at Sennen Cove which is one of the most beautiful places in England just a mile away from Land's End. My wife and I stayed for two nights and had a very pleasant stay. The room we were in was one of their smaller double rooms but was perfectly acceptable and had storage space, en-suite etc. The room was very clean and had a view to the sea from the main window which was lovely.
We chose to eat in the restaurant both nights we stayed and the food was very good. As vegetarians we had a decent selection to choose from which is always a bonus.
The main compliment I would pay to the hotel is the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. I understand that the management had just changed but you would never have guessed and everyone was very helpful and friendly. This is not something that happens by accident and it seems a well run team there.
I'd recommend to anyone wanting to stay in this are of Cornwall. Fantastic quiet location close to Land's End (though the so called Theme Park there is horrible) and St Ives which is lovely.
