Weekend in a beautiful place

What a lovely place to stay over the Bank Holiday weekend.

St Mowes is such a beautiful place to le. Only thing stay for a'quite' weekend and this area of Cornwall is superb. Hotel is in a great location directly overlooking the quay area. Hotel staff were friendly enough and food is v enjoyable.

Room small, springs in bed sticking out and shower like a dripping tap!

Expensive accommodation for the standard of the room.

a very last minute booking at a good cost reduction for area.

All OK, only one small gripe, no TV signal which was also experienced by another guest.

Excellent postion next to small harbour and also central.

Very nice, but . . . . . .

The location of The Ship & Castle cannot be faulted, situated as it is on the harbour at St Mawes.

But we felt this attribute is somewhat overplayed in the overall experience as the hotel itself could benefit from a make-over. The staff were very friendly, professional and helpful. The restaurant area (although we only had breakfast as they were fully booked for dinner when we arrived at 7:30) is very pleasant and the breakfast (cold buffet + hot menu) couldn't be faulted. But . . . .

The room we were given overlooked a service area which came to life at 05:00 although there was a ventilator or perhaps an a/c unit running ALL night. The bed was awful - uncomfortable (hard and lumpy) as were the pillows. The bathroom was clean but again, needed upgrading - two years ago.

Overall, would I stay there again. Probably not unless I knew it had been refurbished. And the price. Well, as mentioned earlier, based purely on it's location because the accommodation is not worth it.

Welcoming Staff

Friendly and welcoming staff helped to make our short stay enjoyable.

Fantastic location by the harbour in Saint Mawes with brilliant views from restaurant. Value for money given the price of surrounding places to stay and obviously reflecting the general condition of rooms which were not that brilliant and needed further investment in refurbishment.

Nice hotel, shame about the bathroom

The Ship and Castle was a very nice hotel.

The main area was well kept and the breakfast excellent. The room was nice and clean and the bed was very comfortable. The only downside was the bathroom. There was nothing particularly wrong, but it was a little tired. They could do with sprucing up the bathroom, better showers, a lick of paint etc. As a result I do think the price was a little on the steep side. The staff were friendly and helpful, but it could also do with a better arrangement re car parking.

Just the ticket!

Perfect hotel, on the quayside, one minute walk to the St Mawes ferry over to Falmouth.

My room overlooked the public house next door, which could be a little noisy at closing time, however the price of the room probably reflected which room I had. Only downside, was there was no parking, public car park 5minutes walk along the road.
