Positive Reviews

A traditional hotel in an amazing location.

Situated on the cliffs of the isolated Lizard Peninsula in South Cornwall, Housel Bay is a quintessential English hotel providing a unique experience if you are prepared to go out of your way to stay here.

Beautiful sea views from the dining room.

One of the stand out features of this hotel has to be the amazing views it commands over the surrounding countryside and coastline. You can dine in the restaurant while gazing over stunning vistas, and even some of the rooms have picture perfect views too

Cheerful staff make you feel welcomed and pampered.

The staff’s happiness is contagious, and when you stay here it has a knack of rubbing off on you. All requests are dealt with promptly and politely, and you’ll always receive service with a smile in the restaurant.

Negative Reviews

More attention needs to be paid on cleanliness.

Even if it is an old hotel, that doesn’t mean things like bed sheets and towels should look old too. You might find that the bedding in your room is not clean enough for your liking, so you should bring this to the attention of reception if it is a proble

Restaurant overpriced for quality of the food.

Even though the Housel Bay restaurant has great views, you may find that the dishes served here do not quite live up to their price tag. If you are disappointed there are some local pubs that serve quality meals at a reasonable price.

Shabby decor in bad need of a facelift.

The hotel was built in the 1890’s and it retains much of its original charm, however there are a number of areas that need to be updated. Do not expect the height of modern convenience and luxury when you stay here.
