Breakfast was good as well as the evening meal.
There was obviously a staff shortage. It is not good policy to vacuum the stairs leading to the dining area when guests are having breakfast. I had to pay to park my car in the public car park opposite the hotel because the hotel car park was being refurbished.
Very good breakfast but quite slow service. Rather overworked young staff who were working very long hours. No sign of the Manager during 2 night stay. Building work was taking place during our stay, which we were fully aware of, but would have been nice if that had been allowed for in the overall cost.
Enormous extractor fan from kitchen, outside bedroom, which continued going on and off throughout the night. Reported following day - we were told that it should have cut off at 2200. Same thing happened the following night! Various members of staff put it down to maybe a fault! But sadly nothing positive done and no sign of the Manager or any suggestion of compensation. (2 nights with broken sleep!)
Great location and views. Clean bright room.
From our room, number 1 you could hear the kitchen fans and pub noise. It was Ok as we were not early to bed, but could be an issue if you wanted an early night.
Location is always lovely because of where the Inn is, i.e right on the coast at Sennen Cove. Great walks good surfing , sea fishing and a long history of involvement with the sea. Land's End not far away and a brilliant cliff walk which is slightly tempered by the Fun Fair and Cafe culture shock at the end of it. But the rest of it can't be spoilt. Food in the Inn wasn't bad but it is pub grub.
We have stayed here many times before and unfortunately the Old Success is getting less of a success each time. Very definitely end of season , bored staff, tired breakfast - we didn't come down late- and service generally lacking any form of polish, which considering the room prices should be improved. No hot water on the second day , all day, no notification and sorry seemed to be a difficult word, apart from the waitress who apologised profusely , but where was management ? Sitting at a computer saying I know about it , not good enough at nearly £300 .00 for two nights. As always it's not the problem , but the way it is handled that makes the difference . Whilst we were notified well in advance about building works on site and consequently no onsite parking, in fairness work has to be done out of season, but if the additional £10.00 it cost to park whilst staying had been taken off the bill the goodwill generated would have gone a long way to make up for the other problems .
