Nice pub with great views
Stayed in the Kynance room which was spacious and had fantastic views. Nice breakfast and good drinks choice at the bar, especially gins! It was easy to find a parking space right outside. Toiletries in room were locally made which was a nice touch.

Beatiful little Inn in the centre of The Lizard. Breakfasts were great with the full range of options available, all freshly cooked to order. Check in was quick and easy. Breakfast service was welcoming and quick. Although this is attached to the pub it is very quiet. We would definitly stay again.
