We spent a few nights here in October 2016. It was relaxing, cosy and warm. The room was adequate, the food very good, the Service was extremely good. We were in easy reach of the Marconi Wireless station and the Lizard Lighthouse. These could be reached by walking along the Coast path.

Great food with an excellent view. It was £19.95 for three courses and every one cooked and presented beautifully. The service could have been a little more prompt (the wine was brought to the table unopened and stayed that way for 30 mins!) however it was always service with a smile and professionalism. Great view to top off a perfect...

Sheeesh! £7.50 for a scone and cream! Vastly overpriced but with superb views. They really need to take stock of the value proposition here. We didn't stay, but the breathtaking, teeth grinding price vis a vis the very acceptable but ordinary quality needs addressing. I guess mugs will continue to pay over the odds.... But maybe not you?

Went with family to celebrate a birthday. Had walked the coastal path along here several times and thought it very friendly with postcards out on the path suggesting afternoon teas, stop for coffee etc, open to non residents. Views are fantastic sitting looking out over the bay. Specials are the fish off the boats and we all thought excellent. I...

This hotel is so wonderfully located right on the rugged Lizard coastline and is an ideal base for coastal path walks. The views are breathtaking. Happy and accommodating staff are there to make sure that service is available at all times. The rooms are clean and well presented. The breakfast is divine.

What a very special place, I have been a travel agent for over 30 years and have stayed in many hotels all over the world, and Housel bay is definitely one of my favourites. As soon as you enter, you can totally relax, it has a lovely welcoming, chilled out atmosphere. The décor is just so lovely and would not...

Excellent Sunday lunch in the conservatory with superb view across to the Lizard lighthouse. High quality meal, at reasonable prices, served by friendly staff. Located on coastal footpath or a very short drive from the lighthouse.

Having walked around the Lizard peninsula this was the perfect place for a recuperative Cream Tea while we enjoyed the spectacular view. Wonderful location excellent friendly service by the young man in the restaurant and a scrumptious cream tea... What more could you ask for

The Hotel is in a perfect setting and the views of the sea are spectacular. The rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable. There are beautiful coves within walking distance of the hotel. It also has its own cove just below the hotel. Well worth the short climb down and back. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and very...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are situated in a spectacular location at the Lizard in Cornwall. A lovely sandy cove nestles beneath the Hotel, and the Cornish Coast Path runs through the gardens and cliff lands. A place in which to walk, to eat and drink well and to set aside the cares of the world. Unspoilt scenery, outstanding cuisine (AA Rosette and RAC Dining Award) and a healthy lifestyle, we are also home to Britain's most southerly webcam. ... more   less
