A quaint and convenient base for Port Isaac and other nearby sites. Staff are friendly and helpful. But note this is a communications blackout spot; even sat nav cuts out close to the inn, mobile signals are spotty at best, and the inn’s Wi-Fi just doesn’t work.

6/10 Good

Traditional inn in good location. Room including bed/ linen very clean and comfortable however amenities in room were deficient. Unable to use eco friendly shower system as it was point of use so it cycled every 15 seconds from extremely hot to cold. Service was courteous and friendly.

The rooms and all of the inn are thoughtfully and stunningly decorated. Everywhere is clean and bright, a real treat to stay here. Food delicious, staff are friendly and helpful, even had a fellow scouser to serve us breakfast. Good location to visit Port Isaac. All round highly recommended, would definitely stay here again.

Two days in Cornwall
Spent a couple of days mid week in Cornwall as a bit of a getaway. The welcome at the Cornish Arms was friendly quick and efficient, the room was spacious and clean. We ate there the first night as we had been driving for sometime. The food we had was good not too badly priced, the barmaid taking orders and serving the food, was under a bit of pressure but was in control and there wasn't an undue delay. The bed in the room was enormous and comfy, the walls in the room were either thin or the room next door were hard of hearing. The two days we were there, bin lorry's empties bins right under our window early in the morning, that's not a complaint they have to empty bins and the pub is on a main road which has quite a bit of traffic. The breakfast was excellent you certainly won't go hungry, nothing was too much trouble and service was prompt and friendly. We stopped two nights, our room was not service between the two nights we stayed this wasn't a problem for us but the tea and milk in the room wasn't replenished although had we asked, more would have been provided. We were very happy with the accommodation and enjoyed our short stay.

The Cornish Arms is a friendly inn on a slightly busy road. While the rooms were comfortable and clean, the traffic noise can be an issue - but not for us and our earplugs (it dies down at night anyway). This is a good location to explore Cornwall - Port Isaac, Tintagel and Padstow are all close by car. The staff were exceptional and we enjoyed the pub in the evenings. Unfortunately, that's the only place for wifi - none in the rooms. So disconnect and enjoy the people and charm of this small inn.
