Positive Reviews

Comfortable rooms and lounge

Guests appreciate the standard of the rooms at the Rising Sun, consistently describing them as comfortable and as offering everything you might need. Several guests note the good quality items on the hospitality trays. The seperate resident's lounge is appreciated by guests who want to steer clear of a crowded bar.

Great for foodies

It helps if you like fish as, at the Rising Sun, you can expect a fresh catch daily. Don't fret if you're not a fish fan - guests rate the standard of other meals highly too. There are occasional poor meals here but, for the most part, guests arrive feeling hungry and leave satisfied.

Friendly and attentive staff

Previous guests have found the staff at this hotel to be friendly and attentive during their stay. A warm welcome awaits and guests mention that they were able to approach the staff with any questions. A lot of the staff here seem quite young but enthusiastic nonetheless.

Negative Reviews

May find drinks pricey

While comments about the good value provided by the food are fairly commonplace among reviews of this St Mawes hotel, guests do occasionally mention that they found the cost of drinks was quite high.

Wi-Fi issues

Problems with the Wi-Fi here seem fairly frequent. Guests often find the connection slow or are unable to get online at all. According to hotel staff, super-fast broadband is in place but it is rather temperamental.

Noisy kitchen fan

Several guests mention that they were disturbed by the sound of a kitchen extractor fan. It seems that this has been serviced but guests are still prone to mention it. On the plus side, the surroundings are otherwise fairly quiet and the fan does go off eventually.
