Have looked forward to our Porthleven holiday all year and treated ourselves to a lovely meal at The Harbour. Pleasant welcome from staff. Really tasty food and the pub is dog friendly so they were happy to accommodate our puppy, Twiggy.

Stayed for 1 night for my husbands birthday. Rooms were clean and cosy, we paid a little more for a harbour view room however well worth it as the weather was very stormy so the best time to watch the waves! Breakfast is fab, proper home cooked style. Staff were very nice. Would definitely stay again.

Visited three years ago and so pleased to be back. The friendly, helpful, professional staff fantastic location all help to make for an enjoyable stay. I particularly like the use of local produce from the toiletries in the bathroom to Cornish butter, fab bacon and really yellow yolked eggs! Room very fresh and clean too. Will hope for another stay... More

If there is a better way to spend a sunny afternoon in October drinking a pint of HSD whilst looking out over Porthleven harbour, I've yet to find it! We've been visiting Porthleven for 15 years and a drink at The Harbour is always something to look forward to. The food is typical pub food and whilst not fine dining... More

I can agree 100% with all of the previous reviews. We stayed in one of the harbourveiw rooms which is a must otherwise probably not worth staying. Sitting in the bay window and the view is a bucket list moment. Bed was comfortable and nice little modern bathroom. parking wasn't too much of a hassle on Commercial St straight outside... More
