Idle Rocks Hotel

Idle Rocks Hotel

The Idle Rocks is situated idyllically on the Harbourside of St Mawes. Perched perfectly on the rocks, it’s the home from home where you can make yourself comfortable in one of 19 individually designed bedrooms, each with its own, unique style and charm. Our restaurant and South facing Terrace offer an ideal location to appreciate the view across the water, whilst enjoying fabulous food, centred on fresh Cornish ingredients. The Idle Rocks is the place to re-engage with the simpler pleasures in life.

On the quayside in the traditional fishing village of St Mawes, the Idle Rocks Hotel boasts excellent sea views and fresh seafood. It offers modern rooms and free Wi-Fi. All individually decorated rooms at Idle Rocks feature a flat-screen TV, vintage radio, Cornish tea, a Nespresso coffee maker and a bathroom with a bath or shower, and some with a rain-effect shower. Some rooms have views of the harbour and St Anthony’s Head. Some TVs also double as mirrors. Food is sourced locally and the head chef is also a keen forager. Breakfast includes unique twists, such as Birch Tree syrup, and there is also a range of brunch dishes on offer. You can enjoy a cocktail in the bar, or on the terrace which offers lovely sea views. The village is home to St Mawes Castle, coastal and inland walks and watersports. Falmouth is a mile away by ferry, which operates year-round. Trelissick Gardens, St Austell and Truro town centres are 30 minutes’ drive away.
