We spent New Year's Eve at the hotel. The weather was dreadful, so we chilled in the lounge rather than taking a walk. The buffet supper was really well thought out and very tasty. There was a disco for those who were interested. At midnight there was a break in the weather and we were treated to a truly professional...

Had two fantastic days based at housel bay hotel. Beautiful room, 19 I think, with the most breathtaking views over the garden and the bay itself. Ate in the restaurant both nights and it was very good. Staff were very friendly, chatty and professional. The hotel is not modern by any means, thats why I booked it. Why go to...

We like to stop here for a drink when we are in Cornwall. Haven't stayed over so can't comment on rooms, but staff always friendly and there are not many better views to be had for the price of a drink. Unforgettable and recommended.

I really liked The Housel Bay Hotel! It really is in a most beautiful location - the views are stunning and the coastal footpath goes right past the hotel. The building is lovely and has lots of character - it really feels homely too and does reflect the fact that it is very individual and not part of a big...

This Hotel was an excellent choice for us, the location was perfect and the view was second to none, the staff were friendly and the food was fantastic. The room was clean but a bit dated and worn, there were plenty of spaces to sit and chill out both inside and outside. There are not many activities close by but...

Went for lunch on a sunny Saturday in October. The hotel is right on the coast with a beautiful view of the coastline and sea and Lizard lighthouse. Sitting whilst having lunch looking at all of this was so lovely and restful. The food was good with mussels, ribs and a gourmet salmon sandwich amongst our orders. Two of us...

Stayed two nights for a wedding party and had a very pleasant stay with all the staff being very friendly and helpful. Very much enjoyed the stay and the comfortable homey feel. Breakfast was fabulous with a wide range of choices. From a full cooked breakfast to fruit and juice.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are situated in a spectacular location at the Lizard in Cornwall. A lovely sandy cove nestles beneath the Hotel, and the Cornish Coast Path runs through the gardens and cliff lands. A place in which to walk, to eat and drink well and to set aside the cares of the world. Unspoilt scenery, outstanding cuisine (AA Rosette and RAC Dining Award) and a healthy lifestyle, we are also home to Britain's most southerly webcam. ... more   less
