The Lowdown

With its spacious rooms, stylish décor, bespoke furnishings and stunning sea views, The Llawnroc Hotel is out to impress. Outside, you’ll discover the rugged beauty of coast and countryside in this idyllic corner of Cornwall. Here, you’re in the heart of the distinctly Cornish village of Gorran Haven, with breathe-in narrow lanes, wonky fishermen’s cottages, a small harbour and two sandy beaches.
Sail, surf, walk the cliffs, explore the local beaches or stay in and soak up the splendour of The Llawnroc Hotel. When it’s time to eat, there’s a lot more to Cornwall than just pasties. Tuck into locally caught crab, fresh fish and regional produce in the hotel’s bistro and fine dining rooms. Should you fancy really unwinding, opt for a spa treatment or two at the spa.

Very pleasant experience.

My wife and i took a travelzoo two night package at the hotel. The area is very peaceful, not even a pub in Gorran Haven itself, however the hotel bar and restaurant were first class and the dining experience was very good. Our room (4) had everything we needed including a decent fridge, tea and coffee of quality. I wish the bathroom had a shaving mirror? We would like to have had the choice of restaurant evening, being told it had to be first night was a shame as we would have taken the Fish Friday special on the first night and taken the included restaurant meal the next night. Would return if in Cornwall.

A hidden gem

After driving down tiny roads found The Llawnroc and look out for the sign that points you in the right direction as it helped me. Beautifully appointed and set in a tiny village with a lovely little beach. Very quiet. Lovely team at the hotel and I loved that I was taken to my room. A very personal touch. Good size room and AC was available. Very comfortable and great size bathroom. Wonderful terrace and enjoyed sitting and reading my book. Supper was delicious. An interesting started of lamb with dips and a hot shell main. Probably the best breakfast in a long time. Great choices and Eggs Benedict were to die for and all cooked to order and I see why the team ask you to book your breakfast time so they can give you the best service.

Fine restaurant, good menu and great food. Rooms tastefully decorated. Lovely sea view from some rooms. Good service and overall an excellent hotel in all respects.

A wonderful stay - will be back!

Great rooms, very spacious and well appointed. Lots of teas and coffees and other extras. Beds are super comfortable.
The staff are wonderful - very friendly and polite. Nothing is too much trouble. Everyone seems to be happy to work there and it shows in the care they take of their guests.
The restaurant has a wonderful menu - wished I had been staying for a week so that I could sample everything, but what I did try was very high quality and cooked and served to perfection. Breakfasts were also very good with top notch ingredients and well presented.
Wonderful terraced area with superb views.
This hotel is a credit to Cornwall and I would highly recommend staying there. You will not be disappointed.

What a gem!

I loved every single thing about The Llawnroc. From the lovely receptionist that showed us to our rooms (a rarity in itself), to the young man that put my case in my car for me.
The room was spacious, very well equipped and very comfortable (plus fudge!).
Gorgeous terrace with views to the sea was so very relaxing with a Margarita and, the food was scrummy. Breakfast was amazing!

A friend and I stayed for a couple of days - I was desperate for a break and some peace and quiet. Llawnroc fulfilled this completely. I stay in hotels very regularly and I'm sick of the corporate sameness. Llawnroc is the antithesis of corporate sameness thank heavens.

I hope this hotel keeps doing what it's doing. The staff are friendly, warm and helpful and you can tell they enjoy working at the hotel.

I would like to mention one particular young man who had recently arrived from New Zealand. He is a great asset to the hotel team. Cheerful, friendly and helpful - sorry, I didn't get your name to mention you in person!

I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
