Been coming to Harlyn Bay for over 40 years & thought it was about time I used the Inn for more than just their gorgeous carvery. I wasn’t disappointed. The room was spotless, bed was very comfortable, no noise from the pub or other rooms & the all you could pizza went down a treat with my pint of Peroni! I was made to feel welcome / & as a solo female sometimes that doesn’t happen. Love love love Harlyn Bay & now I can stay on the doorstep! Il be back in a heartbeat!

Disappointing 2nd visit

Pros: The staff were friendly and polite. The food was excellent. The selection of drinks at the bar was superb. The location is priceless.
Cons: The constant change in water temperature in the showers needs to be addressed before a young child is scalded and have to be taken to A&E. Read above!
Location: The location is fantastic and is 20 seconds from the beach. Padstow is a short drive away & well worth a visit. Lots of beautiful coves along here.
We last stayed 12 years ago and our only criticism was that the shower cubicle was rather snug. As I had upgraded to a Superior Double Room en suite comprising of a bath & shower, tv with sky, central heating (radiators in the bedroom & bathroom) & free wi-fi I was expecting a relaxing trouble free stay! That turned out to be a mistake! Whilst un-packing we noticed a window open which we assumed was why the room was so cold. Well the window wouldn't lock as the handle was broken but the reason that the room was so cold was that the radiators were not working! We complained and were told it would be fixed the next day and a portable heater was sent to our room. We decided to have a relaxing bath that night and it was lovely in our big corner bath but when we tried having a shower the next day we turned it on, heard strange noises and my wife was scalded as the water went from cold to boiling in seconds! You could not adjust it to run at a constant temperature, so we had quick cold showers!! We tried every conceivable permutation to get the sky tv to work but to no avail & I believe others had the same problem. As for the free wi-fi? - It was impossible to get it in the room and it was hit and miss anywhere else that we went within the hotel. The meals we had were the highlight of our stay at The Harlyn Inn. This stay was a 50th Birthday surprise for my wife and I guarantee it will be a Birthday that she will never forget. I half expected Basil Fawlty to make an appearance!

Basic 3 star hotel but with good facilites. The beach is outside the front door. The bar is good with a wide selection. The staff very friendly and helpful. Great restaurant where the young chef is very good. Overall if you are dissatisfied. pay for a four star in a less attractive place. Great value for a great time. Dave & Sandrs Hall.

Friendly and comfortable

Everyone we dealt with was helpful and friendly. The food was very good. The room was comfortable, clean and met all or needs. It was a nice place to come home to at night. Its proximity to the bay was wonderful. We enjoyed some lovely walks around there.

Unclean, sour smell in room.

Only ok if you want very basic pub accommodation and can't get in anywhere else. Our room had a sour damp smell. Definitely not value for money.
