After trying out the Trelissick parkrun as #parkruntourists we were in need of a special place for lunch to continue our wonderful last day of holiday. I had this place in mind but wasn't hopeful for a table without a reservation & we weren't planning more than a hour in advance! But we were lucky & it was perfect. A...

Dropped in on spec for a bite to eat, the food was very good, well presented and tasty, service friendly, decor relaxing. Lovely views out into the estuary, a very relaxing place to have a meal. The only slight complaint is that the prices were a bit on the high side, £14 for fish and chips is a bit steep,...

We spent two nights here at this hotel. Sw Mawes is such a beautiful village to explore, it is very quaint and has lovely shops, pubs and a restaurant. The Deluxe Room was beautiful, the view overlooking the harbour was so relaxing we kept our window open so we could hear the sound of the sea. Food was great, breakfast...

Fantastic location overlooking the small harbour in St Mawes. Very comfortable room and bathroom with some views of the harbour (a Falmouth room I think). Excellent breakfast buffet, but if you're after a full English you need to go over the road to their sister hotel, the more formal Idle Rocks. Idle Rocks definitely worth a visit to sit on...

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 owner Karen Richards, 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 last year completes the package of a wonderful place to celebrate and create special memories. ... more   less
