Hotel at porth beach?

I am taking my sister on a' memory lane visit ' to Porth Beach in August. Does any one remember the name of the Hotel that was up the hill from Porth Beach on the way to town It was on the parh and tou passed the life guard hut. The Hotel used to have a Piper who played the bag pipes in an evening. If anybody remembers it and if it is open i will be gratefull.

Hi cornish at heart, welcome to the T/A forums.

The Hotel you are speaking of is the Porth Veor.

I'm afraid it has changed a lot. The hotel is still there. They also now have self catering cottages. They dont have the piper any more either.Any how here is a link for you.

Enjoy your holiday. Need any further assistance, please dont hesitate.

I always stay at porth beach, I have stayed at Alex Guest House and Sandpiper Hotel. These might be some other ideas for you.

Have a good time.

Hi Rob, Just to let you know that, The Glendorgel & Porth Veor Manner are the same place.

Confusing I know. It was previously called The Glendorgal, then they changed it to Porth Veor,now back to Glendorgal. there website still comes up as Porth Veor. I guess ours is not to reason why......

Loverly place though.I was at a wedding there a few weeks ago, food fantastic!

Thanks Lilly - in fact they are not the same - Porth Veor Manor http://www.porthveormanor.com/index.php is a different hotel to The Glendorgal Hotel http://www.glendorgalhotel.co.uk . Glendorgal did change its name a few years ago to something like The Watermark, but wuickly changed it back again. I think the Porth Veor is a little further into Porth and set back from the beach, whereas Te Gelndorgal is up on the cliff above Porth. If you do a google maps search for "hotel porth cornwall" you'll see the position of both.. Hope this helps.

I was also thinking that they were different as I thought the Glendorgal has the Watermark Brasserie and the Porth Veor has Beucliffes restaurant - however, they both look very nice indeed.

OMG, what can I say. I must have been having a VERY serious senior moment!!!

You are of course right about The Glendorgal & The Porth Veor,being two different Hotels. I was thinking about The Glendorgel changing its name, & some how it all went wrong from there.

I sincerely apologise to everyone. :-(

Cornish, I was right about the hotel you were asking about , it is Porth Veor.
