Located on Mount's Bay in Marazion, the Godolphin is the gateway to one of the most iconic landmarks in Cornwall - St Michael's Mount - as well as a lovely base for exploring west Cornwall. Mount's Bay is a mecca for water sports enthusiasts and guests can enjoy a variety of activities including sailing, wind surfing, kite surfing, stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking here. The beachside position is perfect for those looking for a relaxed restaurant experience with views of the beach. Expect fresh seasonal produce and interiors that hone in on the natural beauty of the location, bringing the outside in. Soak up the sunshine on the beachside terrace with a local gin or ale - bliss.

Low tide offers the perfect opportunity to walk the ancient cobbled causeway across to the Mount - take a passenger ferry back when the tide floods in.

The Godolphin is right on the beach in Marazion, a short walk from the town's shops and cafés.
By car: the hotel is 6 hours from London, 3 hours 30 mins from Bristol and 2 hours from Plymouth. Free parking is available opposite the hotel.
By train: London Paddington to Penzance takes around 5 hours. The hotel is then 10-15 mins away in a taxi.

Style & Character

The Godolphin offers an escape that's well suited to beach lovers and watersports enthusiasts, with plenty of seafaring activities in close proximity. We love the bright, abstract prints by Henry Garfit, artist and founder of the Newlyn School-of-Art, along with mixed-media sketches of Mount's Bay by Juliette Paull.

You can't beat cocktails on the terrace before a stroll along the sand dunes, beautifully wild and right on the doorstep.
