Sorry this is reviewing the food only. We haven't stayed here but there doesn't seem to be any separate entry for the Restaurant and my browser crashes evvery time I try to create one! St Mawes is a very expensive place to visit all round, partly because of its remoteness and partly its carefully cultivate exclusive image compared with Falmouth...

Firstly, the good parts: Gorgeous hotel, great location; quiet and right next to the water and pier car park, beautiful view at breakfast as the sun rose over the harbour, extremely comfortable hotel room with the biggest bath I've ever enjoyed the use of. Extra perks included a personal coffee pod machine (if only I drank coffee!) good tea, and...

This is really a very wonderful hotel which is let down by certain lack of attention to detail. The room we had was great, the beds were amazingly comfortable and the bathroom was just small enough to be warm but big enough not to feel cramped. Tea and coffe was great and I enjoyed the local tea always a nice...

I spent a beautiful October evening in St. Mawes, the weather was gorgeous and the location of the hotel is perfect. There is stunning views from the terrace or if you have a sea-facing room which I hadn't. I paid 135 Pounds for a nice room with a somewhat disappointing view into a small alleyway. The décor of the whole...

We were lucky to get a booking midweek, as the restaurant has relatively few tables, giving a laid back, almost living room feel. The menu and specials were good, with an emphasis on sea produce. Overall a relaxed, well decorated room for a good meal.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set alongside the harbour, in the heart of the village, the St Mawes Hotel has a lively and informal feel, without compromising on taste and style. The warmth of the team, beautifully designed rooms, lively bar restaurant and terrace makes the luxury sea view hotel a place that will draw locals and visiting guests back time and time again. The seven bedroom boutique hotel has bright and airy luxurious guestrooms. Decorated by Karen Richards herself, the interiors will capture the nautical views of the village and harbour. Each room echoes Karen's signature style, a marriage between traditional coastal culture and contemporary design. All front facing rooms offer spectacular sea views and look out over the harbour. The bar restaurant at the St Mawes Hotel is a convivial escape to enjoy authentic quality dishes that will showcase the best locally sourced Cornish ingredients. Menu options include both smaller and larger dishes based on the wonderful produce from the sea, alongside stone baked pizzas and daily specials. Alfresco tables provide an idyllic location to make the most of sunny days and enjoy the spectacular views of the water. Guests staying at the St Mawes Hotel will appreciate the comfortable lounge, complete with compact library and log wood fire place for cosy winter days, with nautical inspired interiors and unspoilt views of the harbour. The addition of an events space and an intimate 25-seater cinema will follow this summer. ... more   less
