Where the Rivers' Fal and Percuil meet to join the open sea, St Mawes boasts the perfect picture postcard retreat and at the heart of the village, right on the quay you will find The Ship and Castle Hotel. Once The Ship and Castle Inn, and a warren of small fishermen's cottages (remnants of which can still be seen at the rear of the existing building) The Ship and Castle is now a 54 bedroom hotel with all the charm and character one would expect for its location. Our bar and lounges offer the perfect location for a peaceful day in St Mawes watching the world go by, or enjoying a traditional Cornish Cream Tea. We have a selection of sea view rooms which understandably are in high demand and are well recommended to make your stay that little bit more special.

We were part of a Shearings coach trip and our first impression of the area and hotel was good. It was nice that the manager took the time to come on the coach when we first arrived to explain various aspects of our stay eg time of meals, how the £25 food/drink voucher works etc.

Which rooms would people recommend? We would like to contact the hotel to enquire about parking, but have found it difficult obtaing their direct line.
I couldn't answer the question on room choice with a numbered room, some of the rooms have a sea view, the one I stayed in doesn't, but was still a nice room. Parking is limited in this area, and legal street parking is the best option. I do not know what parking, if any, the hotel provides. St. Mawes is an unspoilt village that is pressed against the sea by the hills behind.

Did the bar sell real ale either on handpull or bottles? Was there a hairdrier in the room?
We served a wide variety of Bottles Cornish real ales sourced from Skinner's Brewery in Truro. There is a hair dryer supplied in each room. Regards Matt Reed Assistant Manager The Ship & Castle Hotel
