“GREAT CARVERY - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Didn't stay at the Old Success Inn but had a fantastic carvery. The meat was cooked to perfection and the choice of vegetables and potatoes was amazing all for a very reasonable price. We were visiting from Mid Devon - shame we don't live closer, we'd be there every Sunday!

Our flight to the Scillies was delayed. As we were flying out of Lands End at 8.30am we looked for a hotel nearby. The room was not superior in any way. It was a bog standard B and B. A 'continental' breakfast was left out for us. 2 slices of bread, a tiny box of cereal and a yoghurt.
The bar/restaurant food on site was excellent and reasonably priced.
View from the room was superb but can't excuse tatty decor and rattling windows. Would not recommend or stay again.

We spent a couple of days here at Easter and the room (nice decor, bed a bit soft, free wifi), view and location were brilliant. The beach is right on the doorstep and there's great access to walking paths for Land's End and all along the coast in both directions.

We ate in the restaurant the first night and 4 hours after dinner my partner was sick - we didn't eat there the 2nd night. (Tip: - a 4-hour walk to the excellent Kings Arms in St.Just was a much better idea and a taxi back only £12.50). Altho' breakfast - standard fare - was fine both days, I had to wait an inordinate amount of time for my scrambled eggs, and only politeness stopped me walking out after the cereals and toast were finished and the coffee had gone cold and I was still waiting. These issues in no way reflect on the waiting staff; who were very pleasant.

This hotel/pub/restaurant has a monopoly in Sennen Cove, even to the point of being the only place to get cash (wth a charge) but is friendly and clean and a social focus of the village. We didn't spend much time in the pub but it looked fine.

Room Tip: room with a sea view, but preferably on the top floor, where you won't be overlooked

Wanted a quiet time away and booked last minute. What a find. Warm and friendley pub, great fresh locally sourced food, good clean accommodation, and magnificent views. Lands End half hour walk away, and beats driving to it hands down. Will be back.

Thanks Andy and the team.

We were staying in Sennen Cove for a week and went to the pub on Thursdays quiz night. Good beer, pub food and fun quiz. We didn't win but enjoyed trying! Best part was not worrying about driving home after a few drinks!

Found this place through TripAdvisor and it is a great find. Located right on the fantastic beach, good sized clean and tidy rooms and a good restaurant that does a great breakfast. Good value and really pleasant staff.

Clean rooms, really great view over the beautiful cove of Sennen - and nice to be able to pop downstairs and try the great food.
Especially nice atmosphere in the evenings - and great to be able to have the dog with us.
Would recommend.
