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.

How to Get There

The Llawnroc Hotel

St Austell, PL26 6NU United Kingdom


Great food. Shame about the new building

The Llawnroc is on the site of an old inn which we regularly went to in the past. Sadly that is lost and what has replaced it, whilst very much on trend, is rather soulless. However, in terms of food this venue is very much worth a visit. We visited twice on our week in Cornwall and were not disappointed. I especially recommend the mussels - plump juicy and sweet.

Lovely meal with a view

Revisited Llawnroc after a year or so to find staff and food had changed for the better. Very helpful and polite young staff. Service much quicker than used to be. Good food and it came correctly as we had ordered a variation off the menu. Just a little high on prices otherwise it would have been 5 stars.

Evening meal

Lovely location, Hotel was well presented and decor was very good, had booked a table earlier in the day, arrived about 10 minutes before our table was booked for, ordered drinks at the bar and informed bar staff that we had a table booked, served our drinks and then just left with no direction from staff, had to ask again about table and was shown into restaurant and told to pick any table with 4 seats , different I guess, food was very good but had to ask for steak knife and condiments, could be a great place but let down by young inexperienced staff, by all means bring youngsters on in the business but a senior experienced staff member is needed to ensure a good level of service is maintained, we do a holiday let ourselves but don’t feel it’s somewhere we could recommend for a dining experience,well not a good one anyway, great potential not being delivered on
