On arrival was told no food as it was out of season. Nothing on web site stating this. Told no cooked breakfast before 8am but could have breakfast basket. Room freezing and took till the morning to warm up No one available at check out waited nearly ten minutes in the end left key behind bar

Great Rural Pub
Thank you to Karen and Adrian for making us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The pub has a real friendly atmosphere where locals make you feel part of the community. The accommodation across the yard was very pleasant and spacious. The king size bed was very comfortable. It is not far from St Ives and Penzance but you do need a car.

A really good, friendly Inn.
This was a four night stay as part of a 16 night holiday. The Engine Inn is remote and in wonderful scenery. Criplesease is not much more than the Inn itself! The rooms are in a converted barn one on the ground and one on the first floor and are very generously sized. We had the first floor with excellent shower room and lots of space. The Inn provides first class food and is very popular with locals who must come a long way to get there! We have never before had the answer we got when asking for the breakfast menu. "There is no menu, tell us what you want and we will make it!" First class all round.

Character, cuisine and company!
I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Location, "staff" (more like on-location buddies!), room, food and final touches were all simply perfect. We arrived late after an early start and looooong drive. We found the Engine Inn and were welcomed by Adrian who showed us out back to our accommodation. I was gobsmacked and admittedly relieved! I thought the rooms would be above the pub but it's actually a separate building out back. The bed was huge and the room authentic. I wasn't looking for high class splendour - I wanted character and history and a real feel of Cornwall which is exactly what this accommodation gave in abundance. We had dinner in the pub and it was our best meal in Cornwall! The gammon was cooked to perfection - the pasty a marvellous introduction to that Cornish delicacy. Breakfast was whatever we wanted at a time that we wanted it. The Cook was fantastic company first thing in the morning chit chatting in between serving. We didn't get the weather that we wanted in Cornwall at all which was a massive disappointment for me but that didn't and couldn't detract from the good feelings we left with from the Engine Inn. On check out I never got to thank Adrian and Karen for our stay so I hope this review will suffice. Thank you so much! We loved everything about the Engine Inn❤️
