I have read that the the best rooms are those with a sea view and balcony at the top of the hotel. Can anyone recommend a particular room and is there a lift in the hotel?
The room we stayed in, was at the car park end of the building and had a terrace / balcony with chairs and a table. You could see St Michaels Mount and lovely views of the sea. Very nice.
(It also had a wet room)
There is no lift, as far as I recall, however we only needed to go up one floor to our room from the bar and dining room. The lounge area is then down a further short set of steps.
The hotel and it's garden is on a slope that runs from the road to the sea, so there are two main changes to the ground floor levels as it accomodates this.
The road is almost level with the first floor bedrooms and the lounge area is about 12 feet lower with small flights of steps between. I think you can access some rooms from the road with minimal use of stairs, although getting to and from the main social areas will involve more stairs.
Hope that makes sense.
We have stayed in many of the sea facing rooms, and all are nice, but all different. Very comfortable and although some very compact, still of good quality. Plumbing could be better though. There is no lift. My partner is disabled and uses a wheelchair and walking stick, but we managed, just ! Rooms do have a sea view but sea if quite away in the distance for some of the rooms. Hotel and rooms definitely better than the food though. If you don't like dogs all around you in the hotel then think again, as this is a hotel kore for animal lovers than individuals.
Yes, the best rooms are on the higher levels at the hotel and overlook the sea. The views are far-reaching and you can also see Mousehole harbour itself. We had one last year but I am afraid I cannot remember the number, so suggest you phone the hotel and talk to them. The staff, particularly on Reception, are very helpful and will give you the information. It is an old building and there are no lifts. There are lots of stairs and some of it is quite winding. Hope this helps.
Don't think there is a lift
Agree with above reviews. We had a lovely view from our patio.
Rooms smallish, but very well fitted out. Bed super comfy. Bathroom huge. But the hotel is not suitable for wheelchair use really. Too many nooks and crannies with sets of stairs here there and everywhere.
And yes, loads of dogs as well.....which for me is a turn off, especially in restaurant.
