We spent three lovely days in Cornwall staying at this Hotel. The rooms were very modern and very nice. Our stay included breakfast in the price. A great location to tour Cornwall from. The staff were very friendly. The Hotel is situated along the causeway that leads to the castle on nearby Island.

With a refurb that takes this iconic building into the modern world the new windows are a stroke of genius as it allows the whole restaurant to enjoy the wonderful view of the Mount. It is no longer the exclusive pleasure of those who arrive first or book the treasured window seats. This means the room is light and cheerful.... More

My wife & I (plus dog) continued our tour of the South West with a two night stay in a room overlooking St Michael's Mount. The location is hard to beat, Marazion itself is a nice village with plenty going on and the view over Mount's bay are stunning. Since our last visit what was a good seaside pub has... More

With such a prime location it would be easy for the hotel to simply rest on these assets. We received a warm welcome from any of the staff that we spoke to. The interior is tasteful, and we went through to the downstairs area and terrace with our dog. The view is perfect, and the service friendly and efficient. My... More

Stayed in room 1 at godolpin hotel. Room was amazing! Overlooking St michaels mount. Quite magical! Watched the sun go down and listened to the sea. Food was delicious and staff friendly and polite. Had the best time wandering around in the evening. Beach beautiful. A trip to St michaels mount not to be missed. Wonderful!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Godolphin Arms is on the water’s edge of Mount’s Bay along a two mile stretch of beach in the historic market town of Marazion, West Cornwall. It overlooks the beautiful St Michael’s Mount, with one of the most magnificent beachside views in the country.Following a major renovation inside and out, the Godolphin Arms has recently reopened its doors unveiling a warm and welcoming beachside inn – a place to eat, drink or stay and explore the unspoilt beauty of the South West coast.Our stunning coastal location has inspired the design, bringing the natural beauty of the beach outside in with relaxed, mellow living spaces and a stunning centrepiece - a two storey light-bathed glass and zinc dining area opening out onto a balcony upstairs and a terrace downstairs. Walk straight in off the beach to our colourful and chilled-out beach bar, linger on the beachside terrace with friends or relax and unwind on the comfy sofas and chairs by the woodburner. Eating at the Godolphin Arms is a relaxed and informal affair and we offer an all-day menu to be enjoyed whatever the occasion or mood. Our food philosophy is simple; we want to provide freshly cooked food that tastes delicious, is beautifully presented and showcases the quality and seasonality of local Cornish produce.Whether you choose to eat, drink or stay in one of our ten en-suite bedrooms, the team will be delighted to welcome you and will do all they can to ensure your stay with us is both memorable and enjoyable. ... more   less
