A very enjoyable 3 days. Room was comfortable, clean and adequate, separate(across the landing) but good private bathroom but this inconvenience was made up for by the very reasonable price. Breakfast very good and very friendly and efficient service.

The Old Black Lion offers a choice of 6 miles quality en-suite bedrooms, all of which are non-smoking, and have recently been sympathetically and tastefully refurbished to a very high standard providing all modern amenities including our famous teddy bears. All bedrooms have direct dial telephones, hairdryers, colour televisions, tea & coffee making facilities.

A warm welcome awaits all visitors on entering the hotel into the tranquil atmosphere of our oak timbered bar featuring scrubbed pine tables and comfy arm chairs where you can enjoy a relaxing drink or two before dinner.

The hotel has long been renowned for the quality of its food and has received recognition and accolade over a number of years from many organisations. The menus which are frequently changed use only the best of British produce wherever possible including locally reared meat (some organic), fresh seafood from Cornwall, seasonal vegetables and herbs from our own gardens.
