The AA 5 star, 2 Rosette rated 17th-century Port Gaverne Hotel is nestled in a beautiful secluded cove on North Cornwall’s dramatic coast. Enjoy seasonal, star-quality food inspired by the bounty on our doorstep. Relax in our traditional old bar with slate floors, wooden beams and a wide range of proper ales. Your dishes will be cooked simply and with integrity by Head Chef James Lean and his team, who have learnt their trade under some of the UK’s top Michelin-star chefs. With antique furniture and traditional features, no two bedrooms are the same at Port Gaverne. Facilities include free wifi, Sky TV, Nespresso coffee machines, en-suite bathrooms with a hairdryer and Molton Brown toiletries. And a hearty full Cornish breakfast is always included in the price. The beautiful, peaceful North Cornwall Heritage Coast is on our doorstep, with the beach just moments away. Port Isaac is a 5-minute walk away, or the large sandy beach at Polzeath is a 15-minute drive.

Visited for one drink. Ended up staying until closing time! Lovely atmosphere, great service, awesome drinks selection and fantastic location. The menu read beautifully and can't wait to sample it. Will definitely return when we're back in the area. Oh, and it's dog friendly

The Port Gavern Hotel is in the cute little Cornish village of Port Gavern and reputable a favorite of Martin Clunes. It is a short drive/walk from Port Isaac and not as busy as the restaurants in Port Isaac. We had a late lunch sitting outside in the sun with a view of the

My wife and I have just had a long weekend in Cornwall staying at this hotel. We had a really great time. The staff were very welcoming, we had a lovely room and the food was superb. This combined with a good walk along the coastal path to Port Quin and a wander about Port Issac

Hi, unfortunately we are meters from the beach but it’s the gable end that faces the sea. We only have two doubles with views. Plugs are standard UK Sockets.
