Just back from trip to the UK including two nights in Cornwall. Our first night was at the Rashleigh Arms in Cornwall. We had a great time. Charlestown is a very small, post-card pretty port very close to St. Austell. It has been used as a movie set and will be again later this year. The Rashleigh Arms is cozy...

We stayed here for a few days whist visiting the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. The room was acceptable in size but unfortunately the bathroom was more of a large cupboard than a room. It measured approximately three feet in depth by some fourteen feet in length. There was a shower cabinet at one end and a...

Late, need I say very late last room available mid week booking. Ultimately just happy to find a room. Booked online 'Booking Lucky' .com. Arrived and at first glance worried. Driving. Into the cobbled, nay pot holes Car Park didn't allay my concerns. Bear in mind it's dark, it's raining, I'm tired. Too Late Now I thought! Check in at...

Poor service and one meal had a burnt offering. Not happy with the senior staffs attitude to resolve and not backing out from the bill and trying to hide it until I asked for it itemised. Made me think that with the season just starting this is a place to avoid unless its s plate of Nachos and a beer...

Came here with my brother, and wife for lunch one day. Very clean and had had a refurbishment since my last visit. Family friendly and nice food!! The weather was atrocious so it was warm and welcoming. Hope to return.

This was a one-night stay prior to moving on to the nearby Carlyon Bay Hotel, which had no vacancies on the day in question. After a long drive from Surrey we felt straight away relaxed after a friendly greeting and being shown to our room, which was large and well appointed. We had some while previously had lunch here and...

OK so the first steps over the mantle of any pub can be nervous ones, fear not this is a pub where the beer is excellent (mostly St. Austell Brewery own brands of course, it is one of theirs after all), the food selection covers all needs (their locally sourced Rump steak was fantastic) and the staff so very, very...

Best fish and chips I've had for a while followed by Irish Cream brulee.Could have happily eaten it all over again if I wasn't so full after plenty of parking beside the pub and a picturesque piece of Poldark for a walk after.

What an amazing 3 night break. Staff were friendly and so accommodating. Slight confusion with the room we booked but that was not their fault (booking.com made the mistake). Breakfast was hearty and served by some lovely ladies that looked after us. The room had great views for watching the sun rise. We are looking forward to return soon. Thanks...

We stayed here last night for NYE. We booked into the guest house which is part of the pub. The accomodation on first impression looked lovely, however...when I went to put our bits and bobs away in the bathroom we discovered a USED ear bud in the cabinet!! Not too impressed at that. We left it there, as it was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Rashleigh Arms was built in 1851 on the foundations of old clay cellars and was given its name after the creator of Charlestown Harbour, formerly West Polmear, Charles Rashleigh. It also boasts probably one of the only Grade II listed car parks in the country, basically the site of old coal storage yards, and is situated in a World Heritage Site. The Rashleigh is ideally positioned in central Cornwall and provides an excellent jump off point for lots of great attractions with the world famous Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan within five miles radius. We are also within sight of the historic Tall Ships and Charlestown harbour, a world heritage site and an attraction in itself. The Pub has moved with times and although over 150 years old boasts eight four star gold rated rooms, a public bar, popular with the locals that shows all live sport and has great bands every fortnight. Our lounge bar is fantastic for relaxing in with large leather sofas and armchairs with a touch of historic Charlestown. The restaurant is modern, open plan and serves locally sourced food from 12 - 9pm every day; and if the weather's good our patio and garden is the ideal place to spend a few hours or more! ... more   less
