Stayed here out of season and had a very enjoyable time. Nice room at T'Gallants, even if the shower and toilet were in a cupboard! Lovely full English breakfast each morning, together with yogurts, fresh fruit, croissants, tea and coffee. Evening meals were also a delight and the carvery on Sunday was superb.

Came in here a couple of times throughout our stay nearby in the summer since it has the best pub atmosphere around. Saying that, the interior still looks very smart, modern and clean. Good for both alcoholic and hot drinks like coffee. There is also a beer garden which is very spacious

Visited Charlestown recently, went into the Rashleigh arms for lunch. It was a good choice, even on a Monday the restaurant was reasonably busy. Food was ordered and after a little wait it arrived. Meal was great, freshly prepared and friendly waiting staff. The restaurant has a nautical theme in it, quite apt as you are only a short walk... More

We stayed in the annexe just down the road from the main building. A lovely old mansion overlooking the little harbour with a view of the sea beyond. The room had good décor, reasonable size but the 'en suite' was cramped to say the least. No room to hang 2 towels. We ate at the main building breakfast and dinner.... More

Lovely weekend break. Beautiful setting in Charlestown. The room (Gig) was very well appointed, spotlessly clean and convenient for bar and restaurant. Breakfast was very good. Carvery was very good. Downside 2 miles from brewery and ran out of Tribute..never mind Proper Job was good. 🍺🍺🍺

Stayed in the guest house annex .It was clean,comfortable and relaxing.Excellent location and good parking.A good selection for breakfast but ran out of croissant and smoked haddock. Dinner in the restaurant was good with a varied menu.As expected of a brewery owned hotel there was a superb range of beers. Overall a really good weekend and will definitely visit again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Rashleigh Arms was built in 1851 on the foundations of old clay cellars and was given its name after the creator of Charlestown Harbour, formerly West Polmear, Charles Rashleigh. It also boasts probably one of the only Grade II listed car parks in the country, basically the site of old coal storage yards, and is situated in a World Heritage Site. The Rashleigh is ideally positioned in central Cornwall and provides an excellent jump off point for lots of great attractions with the world famous Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan within five miles radius. We are also within sight of the historic Tall Ships and Charlestown harbour, a world heritage site and an attraction in itself. The Pub has moved with times and although over 150 years old boasts eight four star gold rated rooms, a public bar, popular with the locals that shows all live sport and has great bands every fortnight. Our lounge bar is fantastic for relaxing in with large leather sofas and armchairs with a touch of historic Charlestown. The restaurant is modern, open plan and serves locally sourced food from 12 - 9pm every day; and if the weather's good our patio and garden is the ideal place to spend a few hours or more! ... more   less
