The sea view is wonderful. The food was delicious The menu was varied and incorporated fresh local produce beautifully cooked and well presented. The room was comfortable. The whole hotel is nicely decorated. .....and we did love having coffee available ad lib in the lounge after dinner. The staff were very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

What a wonderful meal we had at the Bay Hotel in Coverack, the menu is mouth watering, the wine list is extensive and full of quality and the staff were first class. We would definately book again, this is a little gem tucked away in Coverack.

We were part of a party of 18 geologists staying a full week, so potentially quite a handful! Not for the friendly staff at The Bay though. Couldn't fault the excellent location, sea view room, good choice of locally produced home cooked food, attentive friendly staff and warm welcome. It's the attention to detail that make this hotel so good...

We stayed for 3 nights over the Easter break. From the moment we walked through the door we were welcomed by such friendly staff. We arrived early and to our delight were told we could have our room as it was ready. The room was clean and bright with a sea view over the bay. The dining experience was amazing...

We had an inauspicious start to our stay in Coverack as our intended accommodation was not ready for us ans so had to look elsewhere, a local pointed us to the Bay Hotel and we received a lovely welcome and an offer of two rooms for two nights which we gratefully accepted, we were then up graded as they felt...

Recently visited Coverack saw the Hotels Menu and it looked good, they stopped serving food at 2pm at Lunchtime it said on the Menu. To be fair it was five minutes to 2pm so went into to reception to ask if we could have some sandwiches from the menu, only to be told from the receptionist when she swung round...

I am very sorry to hear of your experience recently at the Bay and despite what a local establishment may or may not believe, this is an atypical experience which is clearly demonstrated by our many wonderful reviews and large amount of repeat custom. We do stop serving light lunch at 2pm, but should it have been before this time...

We stayed here for a few days over Easter. Such a warm friendly welcome. Our room overlooked the bay and was very comfortable. Breakfast was freshly prepared and the eggs were amazing! The evening menu changes daily to make the most of the local produce. It's a great place for a peaceful retreat. We would definitely return. Thank you.

Ideal hotel and location for those who like to walk, visit famous Cornish gardens or just lounge about in quiet surroundings with great views. The room was very clean with all mod cons and the view of the Bay was stunning. The staff were exceptionally competent and friendly, whilst the dining was something to look forward to each mealtime.

Stayed two days following re-opening after various refurbishments. Warm welcome, bright, crisp linen double room over-looking the Bay. Breakfast lovely - lots of choice, good portion sizes and presented beautifully. Dinner is of exceptional quality with 5 star attention to freshness, flavour and cooked to perfection and easily good value for money. Not to be missed! Newly decorated and tastefully...
