The Premises 

St Mawes Hotel in Cornwall is a beachside British bolthole at the edge of a handsome harbour. This cosily classic stay has a cinema room (rainy days: sorted), sea-facing restaurant and a lively bar that’s popular with locals. There are only seven rooms, each simple yet stylish, and some with views of the water. On the agenda are live music nights, artist workshops and fitness retreats to induct you into the cool Cornish community. (Please note that unfortunately there's no availability for July or August)

We require a full address and contact details (phone number and email). We require any dietary information (including allergies) and any special requests. We would like our guests to let us know if they are celebrating an event or a special occasion.


If you want to channel Captain Birdseye and constantly stare out to sea, be sure to book one of the rooms with a Channel-showcasing perch. Dogs and bath lovers will enjoy the Village Rooms, which are pet-friendly and have roomy, egg-shaped tubs.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

The boat-channelling Upper Deck serves up plenty of sea views – along with some hearty modern British fare. Local farmers and fishermen are championed, so you can expect to have travelled further than most of what’s on your plate. Do your best to stick around for the Sunday roast. Breakfast (granola, fruit, pastries, plus food cooked to order) is served here, along with afternoon teas. You’re encouraged to pop next door to the Hidden Cinema to catch a postprandial flick – and other entertainment includes live music at weekends.

Liquid Bliss 

The Lower Deck has another helping of harbour views, and serves its own brand (Reef Knot) of ale, organic Cornish wines from Trevibban Mill, and locally made gins. Food is served here between noon and 3pm, and 6pm and 9pm.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Once you’ve watched a film in the hotel’s hidden screening room, gone fishing and taken to the water (sailing, paddleboarding), the delights of the Cornish coast awaits (and it’s not all cream teas). Green-fingered sorts will love discovering the seat of the Tremayne family and their Lost Gardens of Heligan – which were literally mislaid for decades thanks to some pesky overgrowth – and the totally tropical taste of the Lamorran Gardens. For arty types, there’s the Atlantic-facing Tate and Barbara Hepworth Museum in St Ives, and the Falmouth Art Gallery. There are sandy shores on your doorstep, too. Check out one of Henry VIII’s finest coastal fortresses with by cruising up to St Mawes Castle.


The St Mawes Hotel is in the namesake coastal Cornish village, on a peninsula south of Truro.


The airport in Newquay is about 45 minutes away by car; hotel transfers are £75 each way. Exeter’s airport is a two-hour drive from the hotel; transfers are £200 each way. From London Heathrow, it’s a hefty four and a half hours behind the wheel.


The station in Truro is the most convenient – the drive should take around 40 minutes and hotel transfers are £60 each way. From here, Great Western runs services across the country, including to and from London, Exeter, Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh.


The closest big town is Truro, a 40-minute drive north. It’s worth coming by car if you want to see more of the Cornish riviera. Parking at the hotel costs £8 a day – it’s 200 yards down the road, so you may want to offload your luggage first.


St Mawes harbour is the docking point for the passenger ferry from Falmouth and the car ferry from Truro. Private jets can touch down at Newquay’s airport and choppers can descend on the nearby landing field.
