Lovely old pub with character.
Lovely staff, pub food very good, all very clean but slightly tired (old pub) our bed was a bit lumpy it had a mattress enhancer which helped. Unfortunately we had to keep the blinds down as we had houses opposite. Felt sorry for the girl doing breakfasts she was totally on her own, she did her best.

An exceptionally warm, welcoming expience!
An exceptionally warm and welcoming experience! The friendly Irish accent came as a little bit of a surprise but hey ho, why not? The accommodation was clean, tidy and more than adequate for our needs and the locally sourced food was of an exceptional quality, particularly given that the place was packed both inside and out! Booking a table is essential in this very popular venue! The staff at The Cornish Arms could not have been more helpful, and i would have no hesitation in recommending this hostelry to anyone, whether they be travelling alone, as a couple or as a family. We will be back!!

Not What we were Promised
We booked our stay based on the description and images provided on the hotel's website. It promised a Queen Deluxe room. What we were provided with couldn't have been further from the description. There was a basic quality King sized bed and no 'sitting area' or even chairs. The room had been refurbished approximately one-week before we arrived, which would have been the second time in 2020 according to their website. The change was not highlighted before the end of the free cancelation period, nor at check-in and no allowance was made when the difference was pointed out shortly after check-in. When we complained we were asked to leave and promised a full refund, but we are still waiting!

Very friendly
We stayed at The Cornish Arms recently & really enjoyed it. The staff were very accommodating even though we changed our travel plans a few times before getting there. They didn’t even complain when w changed our dinner plans 3 times during our stay! The room we had was good, though we were just a little disappointed that the decor was a bit basic. That said, the 4-poster bed was really comfy & the room itself was vet good. Covid guidelines were well applied in all public areas. They food in the bar was really good & breakfast was great.
