Luxury hotel description
Overlooking St Michael`s Mount and the bay, Mount Haven Hotel has a distinctly contemporary feel, lending itself to a more informal, relaxed and relaxing atmosphere. It`s a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern living, an oasis of peace and tranquility. Some hotels are merely a place to stay - but The Mount Haven is a destination.
When you enter you are greeted by the delicate scent of incense, brought from holy ashrams in India. The effect is both calming and sensuous, and you know immediately that The Mount Haven is an hotel like no other. The décor is chic and contemporary - an inspired fusion of Eastern culture and Western comfort, designed to help you feel relaxed and at home. And, as you look around, you`ll also notice thoughtful touches that make your stay more enjoyable. Fresh flowers from local fields adorn the tables. Exotic treasures; tapestries from Jaipur, caskets from Bhutan and figurines from Nepal, Bali and India are displayed throughout the public areas. It all adds to the ambience, to create a unique oasis - a world away from the stresses of modern living. Of course, we can`t talk about the Mount Haven without also mentioning our famous neighbour - St Michael`s Mount. This iconic landmark rises dramatically from the bay just a stone`s throw from our terrace and garden and provides a stunning backdrop to your stay. It all adds up to a unique experience. We look forward to sharing it with you soon.
The Mount Haven experience is all about comfort and individuality, and nowhere is this more apparent than in our bedrooms. There is a wide range of bedrooms to choose from. Each one is beautifully furnished with sumptuous fabrics, exotic art, luxury mattresses, en-suite bathrooms with complimentary hand-made organic toiletries, flat-screen TVs, fresh flowers and, of course, tea making facilities.

We are rightly proud of the Mount Haven Restaurant, which has recently been awarded a second AA Rosette. The decor is chic and inviting, with comfortable seating, crisp white table linen, fresh flowers, and beautiful local art for you to enjoy. The emphasis of the menu is on simplicity and taste. It`s this straightforward approach to cooking that allows the quality of the ingredients to shine through and it has also has helped us win numerous awards over the years. One of the delights of the restaurant is the fresh local, and mainly organic ingredients that we use. Our talented team of award-winning chefs are spoiled with the quality of Cornish produce and take great satisfaction in preparing and cooking it in ways that best complements the great natural flavours and textures. For example, all our fish comes from the port of Newlyn just the other side of the bay. It may sound obvious, but you can really taste the freshness of fish landed that morning and cooked expertly that same day. The meat is from a local farmer right at the tip of the Peninsular in St Just. His animal welfare is amongst the best practice in the country - you`ll find the tenderness of the meat proof of it.
