“Simply Outstanding”
Reviewed 20 March 2013

We have just returned from a wonderful break at the Godolphin, the staff were great and made our short break one to remember. We travelled with our dogs and our stay was totaly relaxed, thanks to the staff. The location and views are second to none along with the quality of the rooms. Thank you to all at the Godolphon, we will definately return.

The Godolphin and its staff never fail to disappoint! My husband and I have been frequent visitors for the past eight years or more, and always leave with a heavy heart, planning our next visit. Geoffrey is part of the fabric of the building, and even accompanied us and our friends on a walk over to the castle, which we have been promising to do for many years.
This lovely informal hotel that looks out over Mounts Bay and St Michaels Mount, must surely boast one of the most idillic settings in the country. Can't wait foe our next stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms have been refurbished to a high standard, the bathrooms are a triumph. The hotel is d...

The Godolphin Arms is a wonderful place to stay; friendly staff, clean rooms, great bar food, great location and amazing views of the Mount and the coastline of St Ives, Penzance etc. We stayed in room 11 which is a family room incorporating 2 bedrooms (sleeping 4 people) and 2 bathrooms. Kids are catered for with bunk beds, toys and beach equipment. For the adults, there is a coffee machine, kettle, assorted tea and coffees and hot chocolate and biscuits, milk and fruit shoots. There is an alarm clock, hair dryer, toiletries and local information plus free wifi. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and cannot do enough for you. The breakfast was a choice off cooked foods from the menu, cereals, fruits, croissants, scones plus hot and cold drinks. The staff always remembered where we stayed in the hotel and chatted about local events and asked how we were enjoying our stay. The rooms were serviced each day with the beds made, bathrooms cleaned and supplies replenished. We simply cannot praise this hotel and their staff enough. Our stay was wonderful and will miss the amazing view of the.beach, sea and St Michaels Mount from our.bed. we will be back very soon! Rhoda & Wayne

Fantastic 2 nights at the Godolphin Arms. Rooms very well equipped, comfy beds and the most amazing view of St Michaels Mount. Such a rare find for a hotel of this standard to be so dog friendly and welcoming. Fingers crossed that this isn't spoilt but a minority of bad dog owners. Rooms nicely decorated but some signs of wear and tear on exterior but they do have plans to extend so probably waiting for that before re-furb. Would definitely go again. Hotel food very good and, for a treat, go to Ben's Cornish Kitchen which is opposite. Pricey but well worth it. Make sure you book.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view. It;s well worth it. They had a great 2 nights for the price of 1 offer in Jan 201...

Just got back from a night at The Godolphin Arms. Lovely room, great atmosphere and the staff are all very friendly, especially Geoffrey. The only downside for us was that dogs were allowed in the restaurant. We are not dog unfriendly, in fact we both come from families with dogs, but when sitting down to our evening meal we didn't expect there to be a large dog at the table next to us which was being fed at the table by its owners and was begging and barking.We asked to be moved and the waitress was great so all was not spoilt for us. When we came down for breakfast this morning another waitress said a very cheery good morning followed by oh, your the ones who don't like dogs!! However, Geoffrey came to the rescue and we enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the bar area overlooking the mount.
So overall a lovely stay. Maybe a suggestion is to allow dogs in the bar area and not the carpeted dining area??

Walk straight in off the beach to our colourful and chilled-out beach bar, linger on the beachside terrace with friends or relax and unwind on the comfy sofas and chairs by the woodburner. Eating at the Godolphin Arms is a relaxed and informal affair and we offer an all-day menu to be enjoyed whatever the occasion or mood.
