Here's a summary of the good and bad points: Bad: - the shower wasn't delivering hot water for me (my partner had just finished a really hot shower) - clearly the hot water had run out for the morning. When I asked the manager about it he said he'd be up in a minute but an hour later I had... More

We stayed on a Friday in March, without having made a reservation. The room, facing the sea and overlooking the quay, was beautifully decorated. The staff were friendly and helpful,and the evening meal was quite superb. The menu choice was not huge, but the pork belly was spot on and the fish pie is a real winner. We would have... More

We ate here on a wet and blustery Tuesday in March. The whole town was quiet and we were happy to find a good restaurant open for business.

We skipped breakfast and went for lunch at the St Mawes Hotel. It was amazing...tender rare beef, great potatoes, a delicious jus and a perfect Yorkshire to put it in. As the sun came out we dined watching the waves, eating amazing food. 5 stars performance from a welcoming staff in a beautiful room.

Just called in for a coffee and a tea. Very welcoming and good service. It is well worth a visit. The breakfast bakery items were very fresh and delicious. I regret I have not stayed there, so cannot comment on the hotel, but it looks clean and well run.

After 7 years in St Mawes we finally got round to eating here after its acquisition and refurb. The ambience is nice and cosy. The menu is quite limited but enough to choose from. All our meals were good. It makes a nice change from the pub venues in St Mawes.

St Mawes has more to it than meets the eye. The St Mawes Hotel is a good example of that. Beautiful decor, lovely food and attentive service. There is also a balcony to survey the harbour. Really good spot.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set alongside the harbour, in the heart of the village, the St Mawes Hotel has a lively and informal feel, without compromising on taste and style. The warmth of the team, beautifully designed rooms, lively bar restaurant and terrace makes the luxury sea view hotel a place that will draw locals and visiting guests back time and time again. The seven bedroom boutique hotel has bright and airy luxurious guestrooms. Decorated by Karen Richards herself, the interiors will capture the nautical views of the village and harbour. Each room echoes Karen's signature style, a marriage between traditional coastal culture and contemporary design. All front facing rooms offer spectacular sea views and look out over the harbour. The bar restaurant at the St Mawes Hotel is a convivial escape to enjoy authentic quality dishes that will showcase the best locally sourced Cornish ingredients. Menu options include both smaller and larger dishes based on the wonderful produce from the sea, alongside stone baked pizzas and daily specials. Alfresco tables provide an idyllic location to make the most of sunny days and enjoy the spectacular views of the water. Guests staying at the St Mawes Hotel will appreciate the comfortable lounge, complete with compact library and log wood fire place for cosy winter days, with nautical inspired interiors and unspoilt views of the harbour. The addition of an events space and an intimate 25-seater cinema will follow this summer. ... more   less
