Ocean Views!
Great place to stay, right on the seafront at Sennen. Steve & Babs we’re very welcoming and gave us all the COVID stuff we needed to know. Our room (3) was a bit on the compact side, but perfectly good. We had asked for a sea view & got one to the side, which meant you could lay in bed & watch the ocean. Breakfast is very good, with huge portions! We ate in the restaurant one night & that was great too. There was building work going on while we were there, but this should be completed by the time this is published. The new rooms that are being built look right out at the ocean & should be fabulous. All in all a great place to stay. If the restaurant is fully booked, you might need to go further afield to eat as there’s not a great deal in Sennen. We walked up to St Just & ate at the Kings Arms, which was excellent & well worth a visit.

Overall fantastic stay, a few minor disappoinments
Overall it was a wonderful stay. Room was fantastic - clean, very comfortable and finished to a very high standard. Stunning views from our windows. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent, and they even had almond milk latte for my wife. So very happy. A few slight disappointments, given the price of the room, but none of them greatly affected our stay. At check in they didnt have a record of our payment, but they still allowed us straight to our room. Wifi was disappointing- we had to sign in to the network every two hours and it was quite slow and temporamental. It was a shame that they are building new rooms in the old car park, so we had to pay for public parking. And i was sad to see that they had converted the old, very lovely, lounge area into extra bedrooms. But as I said, none of that greatly affected our stay, and the most important thing for us was that the rooms were very good.

The folk who staff the Inn are warm and welcoming. The bed was comfortable, the room warm, the water hot and the food in the restaurant delicious. The bar was full and there was live music. The scenery of Sennen Cove is stunning, and the public car park is very handy and very inexpensive. An overnight stay - too brief to fully appreciate the area. Hopefully there will be a next time !

A very pleasant couple of nights enjoying the hospitality of this welcoming and friendly hotel. I would fully recommend it as an excellent base to explore the Lands End peninsula and surrounds. It will be even more delightful once the ongoing building work is complete.

Fair 4.0
The staff were good and friendly and accommodation was clean and nice but Internet didn't work and not possible to make or receive calls unless you go outside. Plus the TV didn't have a HDMI connection to use firestick or any other media so only local TV 😡

Lovely place with lovely friendly staff. It was spotless and whilst the weather outside did its worts the staff did their very best. Location right on the beach. Any closer and the bed would get wet at high tide.
