... round pillars in the street which stopped the traffic, but if you had a card and swiped this terminal, the pillar would disappear into the ground and then rise again after you were through. Such a good idea. When we got to the pier there was a number of cruises to choose from, either up or down the River Fal. We stayed with the Helford River and bought our tickets for £13 each. It left at 2.00. So we had an hour to wait. We backtracked and did ...
... no doubt a few more. But it was a nice flat little village with very colourful houses and flower adorned pubs. Further south we stopped again at Newquay where we had arrived a week ago. This is a modern "party town" a reputation it got from the thousands of surfers who flock here each summer. There was no surf today but the cliffs with pathways leading down to the sea where quite something. Heading back to the cottage we decided to get takeaway for dinner. Bad idea. Where are ...
... news! Edie decided that we should go to Truro, the main city in Cornwall and have a look around. We arrived just before midday and parked in a multi-storey car park. We were near the cathedral which seems to dominate the skyline from every angle. There are many fine Georgian Terraces in town as well as a good shopping precinct. We actually bought a few things. We went to a flea market in the town hall and bought ...
... the ramparts and had wonderful views towards Penzance, Marazion, the Lizard Peninsula and the open sea towards France. Just wonderful. Walking around to the coast side we then entered the Chapel. It was small and felt like a place you would come to for reflection and peace. So much more welcoming than a large cathedral. It was now time for us the tackle the path down again. Just as treacherous but not as exhausting. The tide had turned and to get back to shore we had to ...
Today was a rest day. We slept in. I arose about 8.00 and did some planning for next week. Washing got done and the dishes got washed. There is a dish washer here but it's easier just to wash the dishes as we use them. Edie showered and washed her hair and announced that she was ready to go. Go where? That was the question. From our previous experience of Sundays there was not a lot to be done. So we decided that Penzance was a large town so there should be something open. We had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mount Haven Hotel & Restaurant Marazion
This is a wonderful hotel, in a superb location, in beautiful Cornwall.
My partner and I stayed for a week for our honeymoon, and we could not of made a better choice.
Although my initial reaction on seeing the outside was "oh no, what have I done??" it turned out to be very nice inside. It's modern, but comfortable and cosy with it, with a gorgeous garden. The large sitting area has a huge glass window with fantastic views. A lot of thought and effort has gone into decorating the hotel, including vases, cutlery, etc. Our room was nice, with a brand new bathroom, and a huge shower, but watch out for the beds. If you like very soft beds, fine, otherwise you might have a problem. I couldn't sleep on it. As my boyfriend said, it was like sleeping on a marshmallow. I don't think that all the mattresses are the same, so perhaps you just need to ask for a room with a normal mattress. The breakfast was great, and was served very quickly. The dinner was a disappointment, but it is possible that that was because it was an unusually quiet evening. The fish was good, but too salty, while the risotto was completely overcooked. The hotel was very good about changing things on the menu, and my boyfriend's steak was good. Still, the coffee was surprisingly good and the organic ice cream fabulous. The owners are very nice and made us feel very at home. I would definitely come back.
The Mounthaven Hotel is a special place.
I have had the pleasure of staying at the hotel on several occasions and would recommend to all.
The management and staff are welcoming, friendly and charming. Accomodation is nothing less than luxurious, fluffy pillows and a fat matress guarantee a good nights sleep. Waking in the morning with sea views and St Michaels Mount is a great way to start the day. The food is excellent and the puddings magnificent.
I look forward to returning soon and enjoying the experience again.
Can't wait t o go back
Fantastic ambience, great views and the managemnet are just superb.
Food was excellent and at a very resonable price for teh area.
I would recommend anybody to spend at least a couple of nights here if they can't get more time off worki.
Heaven at the Haven
My partner and I stayed at The Mount Haven last
August. It is without a doubt one of the most freindly, relaxing and comfortable hotels we have stayed in.
The food is excellent, the staff are so efficient and freindly and the owners Mike and Orange Trevillion
have a single purpose which is to make your stay
as perfect as possible.
We have booked 9 rooms in July to celebrate my 60th Birthday with close freinds. The choice I was given was Portugal or Cornwall.
Alittle piece of heaven on earth.
This place is beyond words. You have to EXPERIENCE it.
From the kind and helpful reception you get from the owners and staff, to the luxurious rooms with the most comfortable beds, to the deliciously fresh food, the stress busting 'treatments' and most stunning of all the magnificent views of St. Michaels mount, everyting about this hotel is wonderful and most pleasantly, reasonably priced.
We were made to feel so welcome that our original 'one night stopover' turned into a fabulous 3 night vacation.
'The perfect place to be' (as their brochure so aptly puts it) to escape, relax and rejuvinate.
I defy anyone who visits not to return. We have.
Wife's birthday made wonderful
To say we had a wonderful time would be the understatement of the decade. Both room and food were of the highest standard's. I would recomend this hotel & restaurant to anyone who prefer's the better thing's in life.
Stunning views, elegant accomodations, sophisticated dining
During our 10-day visit in the UK (May 2004), the highlight our trip was undoubtedly our stay at the Mount Haven Hotel. The beds are heaven -- the views are celestial. The staff is gracious and welcoming. We had our best meals at the hotel as well. It is a fine place as a base of exploration of southern Cornwall.
If you seek holistic treatments, they are available to you as well. The mystery of the Mount combined with the comfort and warmth of this charming facility equals 2 happy guests who will be returning.
