Gateway to the Roseland Peninsula

What makes this hotel really shine is its location.

With the sun warming your skin and the wind in your hair, you would not want to be anywhere else in the world. This hotel makes a great base for exploring the picturesque Roseland Peninsula.

Bistro at the heart of the community

The Gwineas is named after the rocks which jut out of the sea just offshore from the beach. And like that rocky outcrop, Gorran Haven’s only bistro aims to become a cherished part of village life.

It has a special history as it’s located on the site of an old inn where villagers have met for hundreds of years. This attractive, modern bistro is rightly proud of its roots and promises to serve as a social hub for the community for generations to come.

Whatever your tipple we have something here for you at The Gwineas. We have Cornish ales on tap, premium lagers, fine wines and cocktails.  Plus we have fantastic food at affordable prices.
