“Not worth a specific visit”
Review of Jamaica Inn

Jamaica Inn

Reviewed 4 April 2018 via mobile

In reality, it's just a hotel on Bodmin Moor. Sure, it's the setting for a famous novel, but that is a tenuous link to anything else you will find there. The very small museum has nothing directly linked to the Inn itself, the gift shop is exactly what you would expect to find at any tourist trap and the farm shop is something and nothing. If you are passing it's possibly worth half an hour if you can spare the tenner for a family entrance to the museum, but I wouldn't make a special journey out here.

The famous Jamaica Inn was old and quaint but hotel is newly upgraded with huge rooms and excellent facilities. Residents lounge was a welcome bonus with sky sports and comfy sofas. Daphne du Maurier and Smuggling museums are v quirky but worth small entrance fee. Food was good quality and substantial portions. Would go out of my way to stay here again.

Lovely Hotel on the outskirts of Bodmin. Lovely food served daily, helpful and attentive staff and the museum is worth a visit. Affordable and memorable

Thanks for your somewhat contradictory Review. Despite what you thought was a disappointing mixed grill I can assure you we buy the very best and most expensive meat available which is from Warrens of Launceston. You get great value with a rump steak, lamb chop, gammon steak, chicken, 2 sausages, fried egg black pudding, mushroom, tomatoes.....and so on! You still say that Jamaica Inn is a 'must to visit' so please come again.
