We stayed here in February for a few days with our dog and would like to return when the weather is better so that we can take advantage of what must be stunning views and great coast path walks. We had requested a large room so that there would be plenty of room for our dog and were given room...

Spent three nights at the lovely port William hotel, I went with the idea of a relaxing break and boy did it deliver!!! The rooms all had a lovely view of the coast, crashing waves in the background for a truly relaxing night sleep, rooms were clean and well presented. I was out every day on costal walks visiting local...

Hi CLSadler, I think I have answered this one on another page but I can confirm that we do not take table bookings between April and September unless for residents. I'm sorry your experience wasn't great this time and I will be investigating. I hope you do manage to visit again soon. Regards, Mike. GM

This is a great place to stay because it's an ideal location, but the staff make it wonderful. Everyone working there is friendly and cheerful. The lady that served us breakfast was amazing (blond lady that loves chimps). The only drawback is the restaurant evening meal wasn't great, and very expensive.

We have been regular visitors to The Port William loving the location. Our last visit, however was very disappointing. The food was average at best and very expensive for what it was. The house wine at 23 pounds was also very expensive. This isn't a top rate restaurant, but a pub and the prices need to reflect this.

We ate here twice during our stay in Cornwall & the food & views out to sea were lovely. Our new favourite North Cornwall spot! The pub & beach are both dog friendly too so highly recommend. The muscles & the seafood platters are amazing!!!!!

Thanks Jess008 for your review. We are very dog friendly and we are lucky that we have an 'all-year' dog beach. The platters are definitely going down well and I hope you can return soon to try out the rest of the menu. Regards, Mike. GM

Our family of 8 visited this Inn on the last day of our holiday and wished we're gone there from the start. The location was superb, the food the best we'd had all week and the service impeccable. Everyone of our party was impressed by the overall ambience and service. Good value food with excellent portions and well kept beer....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Port William Inn at Trebarwith Strand, near Tintagel, is a wonderful pub and restaurant on the North Cornwall coast, renowned for excellent pub food and a comfortable welcoming bar. There is also 4 star accommodation, with all 8 hotel rooms having a very high standard of finish and superb sea views, down to the sea and the dramatic cliffs. Magnificently situated, The Port William Inn nestles into the cliffs overlooking the dramatic Trebarwith Strand on the North Cornwall coast. When out, the tide reveals a mile of golden sand which can be viewed from the bar, the conservatory dining area and from the inn's eight luxurious en suite hotel bedrooms. Once you have visited we are sure you will agree there is no other inn in Cornwall with a location to match that of the Port William. You are also welcome to enjoy the inn's excellent food and drink from the bar and restaurant, while enjoying the superb views from our outside terrace. The Port William lies on the famous Cornwall coast path and is a very popular stop off point for walkers. Trebarwith Strand also offers a surf school and has Life Guards during the summer months. A short drive takes you to local golf courses and tennis courts while the world famous Tintagel Castle and Island are just a short walk along the coast path. ... more   less
