We have just returned from our second four night stay at the Harbour Inn and would like to recommend this place as somewhere to stay when visiting west cornwall as well as somewhere to eat and drink . The staff are very friendly, the breakfasts are excellent, and the location perfect.

Called in on the off chance to see if we could get the Sunday lunch carvery without having reserved a table and were accommodated at the pub section, along with many others who had arrived at about the same time.It was obviously very popular and we soon found out why. We chose the table we wanted and put our drinks...

Our room was brilliantly decorated in a nautical theme. A two room suite which overlooked the quay. Would have liked a bigger bed but very nice anyway. Made use of the sofa bed. Restaurant was nice and odeon and lovely food. Great patio area right on the quay. Lovely little town - like a smaller version of Looe. Enjoyed

Second visit to Harbour View and again excellent. Staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are lovely and clean and, the breakfasts keep you going until teatime. Only criticism was that the music played in the bar area was very loud one evening, which is not good if you wish to go to sleep. We had a wonderful stay...
