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
Had a weekend stay at the Llawnroc hotel for the first and not the last. From arriving at the reception desk being met by Megan who was so helpful and friendly.
The décor is fab, the rooms beautiful and very comfortable to stay in.
The restaurant is lovely with sea views and the food superb. All staff go the extra mile to be courteous and friendly.
We stayed for a couple of nights at the end of October and were so lucky to have two glorious day of cold but dry sunny weather.
The welcome box of fudge waiting for us to arrive on the end of the bed was a nice touch. We would have liked a view out to sea, but our room was limited to a glorious view of the car park. ( room 14) the room was a good size, and overall very comfortable, but a few things needed attention. The curtains had lost one or two of their hooks and were difficult to pull closed and the voile net was lacking in width to provide window cover. The tap in the bathroom was very stiff and difficult to control.
We ate in the restaurant the first night and were pleased with the choice and standard of the meal, the drinks seemed on the high side though.
Breakfast was tasty with a good choice of hot dishes on the menu.
Excellent location for exploring the local area either by foot or car.
Gorran Haven was full of character and natural charms with the most cosy and well kept church I have ever been in.
Well worth a visit!
We needed a base for 2/3 days on the SW coastal path.The hotel was very good,one of the best we've been to recently.It was clean with a superb shower and bathroom.The bar was a good place to relax after a days touring/walking.The food and menu were very good and Friday was "Fish night"-Wonderful
You can catch buses to Mevagissey and St Austell but its difficult going North without a car.Definitely recommend this hotel and would go again.
My husband and I have just returned from a 2 night break at The Llawnroc. It’s in a good position right on the coastal path which is why we chose it being keen walkers.
We were immediately pleased with the room (3). I think it was a superior double, anyway it was extremely spacious and light. A room in which you were happy to spend time. It had a small balcony with a sea view, looking out over the grass roof of the restaurant. Some other neighbouring rooms may have had a better sea view but their balconies overlooked the large patio (empty in November) which in summertime may be busy and therefore could be a little noisy. So if we go back there in summer I’d stick with Room 3. Bed was extremely comfortable.
We ate in the restaurant on Friday night and enjoyed the special 3 course fish menu which I think is available every Friday. It was EXCELLENT. The chef is also a dab hand with his desserts, very imaginative and high quality. The wine list is great. I particularly enjoyed the French Viognier which was fab value at £20. The fish menu doesn’t give your wallet indigestion either, being £20 for 3 courses of high end cooking and presentation. I wanted to eat there for our second night, but was persuaded by my husband to go elsewhere. Big mistake, not a patch on The Llawnroc, you won’t do better for miles and miles.
The young staff were lovely. Intelligent and willing service throughout. They had an ability to go about their duties very quietly leaving one alone unless they were needed. The whole ambience was very relaxed, it slowed one down which is exactly what we wanted.
Breakfasts very good, on the leisurely side, but that for us was a plus. One small point to make is that the yoghurts were made in Germany! This surprised us because the hotel feature the use of local produce and there are so many suppliers of West Country yoghurt out there. A small point, but hey, I’m taking the opportunity to flag it up.
No problem sorting out the bill, All was ready for us, no errors, very efficient.
I think that we’ll visit the hotel again, thank you for looking after us so well.
Although not hotel residents, my wife and I had dinner there recently. We found the food to be first rate in terms of both the quality of the ingredients and the skills applied in the kitchen. The staff were quite inexperienced but more than made up for it by their care and enthusiasm. And the prices were reasonable. This will now be our "go to" venue for special evenings. Well done the Llawnrock!
