“Do not bother looking at the other Hotels in Mevagissey!”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

I booked the Hotel for the ease of parking and the sheer good value of it, but Jill & Joe keep a spotlessly clean, well maintained Hotel. Just park up & you have Mevagissey village a few minutes walk down the hill, breakfasts are a real treat & probably the best I've ever had. it's definately a real gem & I can't wait to go back.
Fantastic hotel & great friendly service.

Room Tip: There's less than 10 rooms, so I guess they are all similar

We stayed for 2 nights and found Joe and Jill to be the most hospitable hosts. Nothing was too much trouble.

Room was a bit on the small side, but fine for us. Nice and clean.

Breakfast was a real eye opener, plates were full and way too much for me. Set us up for the day.

Lovely garden to sit in, especially if you are a smoker, No smoking anywhere in the hotel.

We will be back as it was a real pleasure to stay here, and we found everything that we could desire in the accomodation and real people to look after us too.

Jill and Joe thank you so much.

Whilst a first impression is it could do with a bit of decoration, this soon doesn't matter.

Our welcome was friendly and warm

The room was an acceptable size, the shower was good and we had one of the rooms at the front with the big bay window.

There is ample parking, unlike many other B&Bs that say they have parking.

The breakfast facilities were more than generous and the breakfaast itself was great.

Would stay there again.

We have visited the Mandalay before and will do again as it is just perfect in so many ways. Jill and Joe always make us feel very welcome. The location is perfect and convenient for the harbour. Breakfast is a feast not only for the food but also for the wealth of information shared by Jill and Joe regarding Cornwall's wealth of sites and scenes. We always request room 11 as this has fine views of the valley and country side. The Mandalay is always very clean, located away from traffic and has its own parking, a godsend considering the small roads of Mevagissey. We usually book our next long weekend stay as we leave the last. Joe and Gill are lovely hosts, there is nowhere we'd rather stay in the region.

It was our 3rd trip back to the mandalay in mevegissey and although it had been quite a few years we can certainly say that the warm and friendly welcome from Joe and Jill had not changed. The Hotel is an ideal location to explore the beautiful village of Mevagissey and to take in some of the amazing views from the harbour and coastal path. The Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are very close by and well worth a visit. The Hotel has great parking facilty wich is a must in Mevagissey. Once again Joe and Jill made us feel very welcome and supplied us with a fab and filling breackfast every morning.

When we booked into the Mandalay we had never been to Cornwall but Jill told us all about it on the phone.She was very helpful.
On arrival we were impressed with the lovely garden and even more impressed with our bedroom.It was so cheerfull the whole place had a warm homely atmosphere.
The B&B has good car park and you only have a short walk to the village.
Joe showed us lovely walk across the coastal path to the beach.
There are lots of eating places in Mevagissey but after Joe's breakfast we didn't need anything until supper.
We have since recommended our friends to the Mandalay and we shall certainly return.
