The hotel is located in a very beautiful place and the public bar is comfortable in a traditional style . The roast which was available till 6pm was delicious, it was beef with roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and five different vegetables including cauliflower cheese. All tasty and cooked well. My husband chose vegetarian curry which he too enjoyed, accompanied by...

Stunning location, perfect for a short break. Stayed in room 12....very clean, amazing views over the harbour, ample bathroom facilities (better than some 5* hotels ) Great sized room. We ate in the restaurant on the Monday evening, although very busy and just after Christmas Day. It was a very enjoyable meal. My partner had a steak, which just melted...

Christmas dinner here was as always fantastic. I have eaten at this restaurant often over the last 15 years and the food is amazing. The staff are warm and friendly especially the older lady. Sorry that I don't know her name but I am sure she has been there as long as I have been going. Nothing is to much...

The hotel is in a great location and our room had great views. Our room was well refurbished, lots of plug sockets and a good wifi signal. Room was nice and warm. My dislikes were, there are signs big and small everywhere with does and don'ts. The room sound proofing is nonexistent, I thought at one point there was someone...

Our two-night stay here could not be faulted....well, the weather was pretty miserable! We arrived on a Saturday mid afternoon without a booking (not recommended), and we're pleased to be offered one of the last rooms available. It turned out to be excellent - adequate size, nicely furnished, very comfortable bed and excellent ensuite. The ensuite was in fact the...

We stayed at the Pier Hotel last month for a short break. We had originally looked at St. Austell and then stumbled on this little gem. The location of the hotel is fantastic and we woke each morning to a stunning sunrise and got ready for dinner in the evening watching the sun go down - perfect!! The restaurant is...

A spur of the moment decision led us to turn off the main road for St Austell and head for Charlestown and the Pier House Hotel. We were delighted with what we found. Our first floor room with panoramic harbour and sea views was spacious and comfortable. Apparently these rooms have recently been refurbished - they were well fitted out...

We stumbled on the Pier House Hotel by accident but enjoyed a lovely Sunday roast dinner and cream tea. Good value and good, fast service in a pub snug atmosphere. Clearly popular it as a pleasant 90 minutes and we would defiantly return.

We stopped at the pier house for some lunch while we were in Charlestown. It wasn't our first visit and have stopped here before as well. The food was fabulous and such large portions, we grabbed the seat next to the window in the bar and watched the world go by along with looking over the boats in the harbour.
