Had a fish dish which was advertised as line caught haddock - when it came it was pan seared - burnt this was not as advertised. When the girl came to ask if everything was all right I stated this that only half the fish was edible. She apologised but that was it. I feel that the description is misleading...

We returned 2 weeks ago from a great 3 x night stay at the Harbourmaster. We arrived in the rain and parked at the front of the hotel so didn’t have far to walk into the nice bustling bar where we found Reception. Owner Menna gave us a warm welcome and after checking us in, she advised our room was...

We visited 21st and 22nd August stayed in Martha Jane which was a gorgeous room with a stunning bathroom and roof terrace. Our visit was simply perfect, food amazing, staff excellent and the hotel everything we had wished for. We had waited along time to visit and it did not disappoint, in fact exceeded expectations. Will be back

We stayed here during really wild weather in the Madona Suite. The room was cosy and warm even though the wind blew and and rain battered. We love the details in the room like real milk with the coffee and homemade cookies. The restaurant is superb and the bar meals are popular with local people and tourists alike. The historic...

We stayed in the harbourmaster at the beginning of August, and I can sincerely say everything about this place is perfection. The room we were in was big, immaculately decorated, clean, peaceful with great views. The food, at breakfast, in the bar and in the restaurant was genuinely some of the best food we have ever eaten. The location and...

Just returned following a wonderful couple of days at the Harbourmaster. We had the Aeron Belle overlooking the harbour towards Newquay. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and welcomed back like old friends. The food was excellent the oysters and lobster were perfect as was the rib of beef - superbly cooked to our liking. Breakfast selection was great the...

I booked the Madona suite for my partner's birthday. Whilst an expensive stay, it was worth it for a special treat. The Madona suite is the attic room of the main hotel, and as such has great character. There is both a day bed and a king size bed, so you can enjoy the dual aspect views, alongside an amazing...

A very nice hotel, ideal for a romantic getaway. Welcome is a bit disorientating because you walk straight into the restaurant and one of the waitresses has to spot you. But then they were very friendly and showed us to our room. Excellent room, big bathroom with roll top bath and separate overhead shower. Mini sitting room area with big...

I have always wanted to visit the Harbourmaster. We have a toddler, so a visit for lunch in the bar/brasserie was the best we could do on this occasion. And we were not disappointed! You cannot reserve a table, and we arrived there early (midday). I'm so glad we did as 45 minutes later every table was taken. The food...
