About the hotel
The Pier House Hotel in Cornwall is situated on the picturesque harbour of Charlestown with stunning views of the port and coastline of St Austell bay. Experience the ultimate luxury that you would expect from one of the premier hotels in Cornwall. Charlestown is a Georgian port remaining relatively unspoilt and undeveloped reflecting how many West Country ports and fishing coves looked prior to development being one of the finest late 18th and early 19th century industrial harbour sites in the country.
Built for Charles Rashleigh, hence the name Charlestown, the port represents a rare example of a mineral port with its own defences and is one of the best preserved china clay and copper ore ports of its period anywhere in the world. As a result the harbour is now being protected by WORLD HERITAGE STATUS. Over the years Charlestown has been the setting for many television and film productions, the most recent being the new series of Poldark. Situated on the South West coastal path you can take a stroll over the cliff tops to Porthpean Beach and village or to Carlyon Bay in the opposite direction. Charlestown beaches are a pebbles throw from the hotel where swimming is safe and at low tide children can enjoy exploring the many rock pools. The Hotel itself has 27 bedrooms, a Bar/Bistro and an A La Carte Restaurant. The patio area has wonderful views across the harbour and St Austell Bay. The hotel offers many different delights from cream teas to lobster caught locally here in Charlestown. Our hotel bar is a freehouse and serves a wide selection of locally brewed ales. We are 3 miles away from the Eden Project and 6 miles away from the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Newquay Airport is 12 miles and St Austell Railway Station is only 2 miles. There are many moors, gardens and places of interest, all within an easy drive. For golf enthusiasts, Carlyon Bay, St Austell and Porthpean courses are only a short distance away.

A Little Gem in a Lovely Setting.
I was in room 29 in the annexe.
A single room with no sea views, but step out the front door and you have lovely views over the harbour. Plenty of activity in the evenings watching locals jumping from the harbour walls, the local rowing club out practising and anglers hoping for a catch. The room is clean and has all the usual facilities. Shower has plenty of hot water and a good pressure, though is a little on the narrow side. Maybe it says more about the size of me, rather than the shower cubicle. Towels are replaced every day. Bed is comfortable and I had a good nights sleep. The only gripe I have is phone and tv is a bit hit and miss. Even David Cameron, when on holiday in Cornwall complains, but has yet to sort it out. Staff are lovely and friendly as well as being very helpful. Food is very good and very plentiful. Didn't eat in the main restaurant, but in the bar. Breakfast had a good choice and staff were very attentive and efficient. The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are not too far away as well, as some National Trust properties which are well worth a visit. I really enjoyed my five night stay here and would definitely return.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, lovely location, immaculately clean bathroom -very impressed!, good shower pressure, only drawback was that the bed and pillows were extremely soft and therefore not suitable if you suffer from backache!
