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.

A great hotel in a beautiful location
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Booked this hotel last minute and what a find. As soon as you walk into a place you get a 'feel' for it. From the smiling receptionist to the friendly staff the hotel has a really welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. The terrace with a view of the sea was beautiful and we had cream tea and later cocktails and drinks before out meal.

The hotel has a new chef and the evening meal was really very good with plenty of choice. My sole fish was cooked to perfection (not easy to do) and there was a really delicious sticky toffee pudding! Breakfasts were tasty but the service was very slow, partly I think because everyone ignored their pre-booked breakfast times and came en masse (we were allocated a table for 8.15 am and by then most of the tables were occupied!). Perhaps a re-think on how this is organised?

Our room was lovely overlooking the sea and terrace. You can walk down from the hotel to the little beach which is quite dreamy with sea-gulls and the sound of lapping water on our evening strolls. We also did a great coastal walk to Mevagissey and back which is great as it is hard to park there.

We were so impressed with the hotel we came back to stay for another two nights.

Lovely Hotel

My partner and I stayed at the Llawnroc Hotel for two nights in May/June. We booked last minute, but couldn’t be happier with our choice of hotel! The staff are all so lovely and friendly - nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was incredibly clean and the decor was very modern. We loved our room, which was spacious, clean and had an excellent tea tray! Worth the little extra money for a sea view. There are plenty of towels, dressing gowns and fudge on arrival - nice touch. A free safe and fridge are in every room. We didn’t eat in the restaurant as we were out until late, but at breakfast there was plenty to choose from and caters for all. Again, nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

Thank you for a lovely stay; we would definitely return!

We stayed for my husband's 70th birthday and had a wonderful stay.
The location is lovely and the furnishing of the hotel is to a high standard.

All the staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was excellent.

Will definitely stay again.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel from 18th May - 20th May 2018 as a birthday surprise. I could not have chosen better; the hotel is absolutely stunning. With only 18 rooms it is spacious and relaxing. The decor, from the Reception to the bedroom, is of a high quality and beautifully exemplifies the relaxing aura of the hotel. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating with nothing being too much trouble. The Chef and his team produced the most wonderful food I have ever eaten; I had the crab cakes for starters followed by the 'Surf 'n' Turf' with beautifully cooked fillet steak and tiger prawns and a Baileys creme brulee for dessert. There are no words to describe how good that meal was. The patio area is a 'sun trap' with a great sea view. There is a 5 minute walk down a steep hill to a small, secluded sandy beach with a special fish and chip shop, The Haven, just around the corner. What makes this shop 'special' is that the food is freshly prepared while you wait, nothing is kept in warmers. We are looking forward to our next visit and hope you will enjoy your stay there too. I have only uploaded 2 photos because the photos on the hotel's website are perfect.

Great stay

Just had an enjoyable few days at this hotel. Gorran Haven is a quaint village with very small roads we followed the instructions from the hotel to avoid mevagissey and found the hotel with ease. Checked in very efficiently and shown to our room. Our room was clean and well maintained. We dined at the hotel and really enjoyed the food. The staff were very friendly and couldn’t have done more to make our stay enjoyable. Plenty of choice for breakfast. Short walk to the beach, what more can you ask for? We will definitely return.
