The Gannet Inn is in common ownership with the Carbiss Bay Hotel & was beautifully refurbished some 2 years ago. The food, ambience & quality of service were all excellent. A good spot as a base for exploring the end of the Cornish peninsula.

The Gannet Inn doesn’t have a pool but the sister hotel 10 min walk or 2 min drive away, The Carbis Bay, does. Residents can use the facilities there.
