Mullion Cove Hotel
Mullion Cove Hotel has a to die for location perched on the cliffs looking directly over Mullion Cove. There is a lot to explore in this part of the coast and Mullion Cove is a good place to base yourself.
It is not a cheap option though, probably because it has a spa. The spa has an outside pool, a small indoor hydrotherapy pool and there is also a steam room. The hydrotherapy pool was shut for maintenance on one of the days we were there.
If you want a spacious room with a sea view, you will pay a considerable chunk for the upgrade. Prices vary according to season etc., but you could be paying a hefty 50% extra.
The rooms are already expensive, so we opted for a standard double with a partial sea view. It was pleasant enough, but not great value for money and a bit of a squash. The bathroom was tired and in need of some renovation too.
Although it isn’t well advertised, a variety of fresh seafood platters are available to order a day or so in advance. They are pretty expensive though at £65 pp.
Also worth mentioning is that the hotel has a useful booklet with a variety of local walks you can do close by the hotel which is worth requesting from Reception.
The restaurant does offer a reasonable choice with daily changes. The food is of reasonable quality, but certainly not outstanding.
The staff are pleasant and cheerful though and it is a well run hotel. There is plenty of parking around it too, which is always useful.
Overall, we had a reasonable stay here, but if you are budget conscious, there are probably several better choices.
