Hotel Review: Mount Haven Hotel Cornwall
The Mount Haven Hotel Cornwall is a small boutiqute hotel in Marazion in Cornwall. The hotel is located just a few hundred meters away from St. Michael’s Mount and is a great location for exploring the area. In this review, I’ll explain why I enjoyed my stay and would recommend the property.
Planning our Cornwall trip proofed a little challenging. There are hardly any chain hotels, which made us choose two nice boutique hotels.
- Classification: Four Stars
- Room Category: Garden Heaven Room
- Month of Stay: July
For the first two nights we decided to stay at the Mount Haven Hotel in the South of Cornwall. The hotel is located in Marazion, which is mainly known for being right next to the St. Michael’s Mount. To my surprise, the hotel was actually very nice and on a way higher level than I would have expected!
Garden Heaven Room at the Mount Haven Hotel Cornwall
We had booked two rooms at the Mount Haven Hotel, both with quite a fancy name. We ended up in a Garden Heaven Room, which is a room located on the ground floor with a nice terrace with some basic furniture on it.
The room itself is quite cozy and not exactly big, but I’d say that it’s functional.
It comes with a Queen Bed, two night stands, a small working desk with a stool and an armchair as well as another small desk.
The whole room is modern and comes with a lot of daylight, I also enjoyed the nice design and the coffee machine is a nice addition.
The bathroom is quite tiny. Once again, it’s very functional though with a small sink, a toilet and a surprisingly spacious rain shower head with a good pressure.
All four important toiletries are available.
We had a look at the other room booked, which was the same category but two floors up with nice views and a bathtub with a shower instead of a walk-in shower.
All in all, I liked the design of the hotel rooms very much and found the rooms to be very cozy and functional at the same time.
Breakfast at the Mount Haven Hotel Cornwall
All rates at the Mount Haven Hotel Cornwall come with included breakfast. There’a tiny buffet with some pastries and muesli, but everything else is a la carte.
We tried a couple of different things during our stay, among those a board of cold cuts and two different versions of Egg’s Benedict (one with salmon, one with ham).
Everything looked freshly prepared and tasted very good. That’s also true for the freshly squeezed orange juice and the coffee.
Service throughout our two breakfasts was attentive, yet a little slow from time to time.
Dinner at the Mount Haven Hotel Cornwall
A little bit to my surprise, the Mount Haven Hotel Cornwall offers a full service restaurant in the evening despite being a boutique hotel. While fully booked for the second night, we had the chance to try the food on our first evening.
Anna had a beef filet, while I went for the fish of the day. Both dishes were extraordinary. Service was very good, too. Thus, I wasn’t all that surprised that the restaurant seems to be fully booked on many dates as it’s also popular with locals.
Prices are a bit steep, but not too bad. The bar of the hotel, located right above the restaurant, is a cozy place, too. Speaking of the food & beverage offerings, the Mount Haven Hotel is really great.
Overall impressions of the Mount Haven Hotel Cornwall
There’s one thing I really love and that’s points & miles and the many advantages you get through those. Nevertheless, staying at an independent hotel can be quite charming from time to time. The Mount Haven Hotel Cornwall was a great choice for that purpose as the property offers very cozy and comfortable rooms with modern interior, a nice location near the village, yet still close to nature, free parking and friendly staff. Sure, a gym or a Spa would be nice to have, but even without, the property did fulfill my needs. The very good breakfast and especially the great dinner were other pluses. All in all, I’d definitely recommend staying here. It might not be the cheapest property in Cornwall, but it’s well worth its price point… and it’s not every day that I say that!
