“Great hotel, great location, great staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

I had the pleasure of staying at the old success at the end of May in preparation for my brothers wedding. I must say the hotel is in one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. The hotel was clean and tidy at all times. The staff were so so friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were lovely presented. If you ever find yourself looking for a hotel in this area, the old success is the one you should choose.

A great pub doing nice food and god beer. A warm welcome awaits and the location and views are second to none!! They cater for everyone from young to old. If you have trouble with steps then you will struggle but they do have a ground floor flat available. The beer terrace overlooking the beach is great when the sun is shinning.

Room Tip: you get a sea view from most rooms I have stayed in but ask for one when you book.

I spent two nights here with my husband on the 11th and 12th June. The room was ensuite with tea and coffee in the room. The bed was comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was buffet style and there was plenty of choice. Sennen Cove is a small picturesque fishing village. Lands End is a 5 minute walk from the hotel up a steep track. The bay is beautiful with a large stretch of golden sand and clear, but cold water.

Room Tip: If you go to bed early, ask for one at the back and not over the front where the outside tables are...

We stopped here after 18 miles walking on day 1 of our latest instalment of the SWCP. It had been quite a tough day, so the comfortable sea-view room (with a bath most importantly!) was most welcome.
Breakfast was OK, so all round a pretty good stopping point for walkers even though options are limited in the area.

We stayed here last year and loved it.This time we stayed for 2 nights and were not disappointed.Our room(11) was spacious,clean and comfortable with a sea view on 2 sides.The staff remain helpful and friendly although the food in the bar was a little disappointing both in terms of quality and price,the service was good and the bar staff friendly

Room Tip: pay a little bit extra for a sea view

We had a sort break at the Old Success Inn having stayed at the Hotel many years ago. On checking in we were greeted by the Head Receptionist and she informed us that our room was not ready yet and she offered to buy us a drink in the bar whilst we were waiting. After a sort while she took us the room, the receptionist again said how sorry she was the room was not ready on our arrival but it did not bother us at all, she and the rest of her team were so pleasant and hard working during our stay and nothing was too much trouble which made our stay so much more enjoyable. The room was clean clean and had all the facilities you would expect from an Inn of the size. Food was well presented and the local fish were lovely.

The Hotel has fantastic views over Sennen bay and beech, the only down side was that dogs are not allowed on the beech between 8 am till 7 pm so early and late walks were the norm.

Perhaps the only down side to the hotel is the small car park but hay if this the only problem you can can not complain.

I would highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing break, we will be going again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the front over looking the bay

We stayed here on our first night of the lands end John O' Groats hike.
Very comfotable, good views and sunsets
The key to our room had been mislaid and so we were upgraded at no extra charge
A very good start to our 'treck'
