St. Michael's is a great place to relax and unwind away from the stresses of modern living. Our aim is to make your stay as comfortable and as memorable as possible. All of our rooms are elegantly furnished, blending contemporary cool with coastal comfort.
Nestled in the ancient market town of Marazion, for centuries the gateway to the famous St. Michael's Mount, St. Michael’s has it’s own private car park, (a rarity in Marazion), and is conveniently located on the main street though Marazion just a few hundred yards from the town centre with its high quality restaurants and specialist shops selling crafts produced by local artists.
We are a stone’s throw from the safe sandy beaches of Mounts Bay from where you can look across to Penzance, the last town in England, the original working fishing port of Newlyn and the picturesque village of Mousehole. We are also within easy travelling distance of all the major attractions in West Cornwall, which makes us a perfect base for a Cornish holiday. The Tate Gallery in St Ives, the remarkable Minack Theatre, St Michaels Mount and several other outstanding National Trust properties and gardens are just some of the ‘South West Top Twenty’ visitor attractions within easy reach of Marazion.
There are excellent road and rail links and we are well placed for the International airports at Newquay and Exeter, with convenient flights from several UK and European airports.
We do hope you can stay with us and look forward to welcoming you at St. Michaels,
Paul & Alison.

Welcome to the St Michaels Bed & Breakfast News section.
Spring time is well and truely upon us and this time of the year the hedgerows and verges are a mass of bluebells and foxgloves. There are lots of gardens open to the public with masses of sping flowers and stunning rhododendrums and camelias just waiting to burst forth. Summer promises lots of local events including flower festivals, parades and traditional celebrations. Check out the new Visit Cornwall website which has details of all the special events and local festivals for the year ahead at https://www.visitcornwall.com/whats-on
Get in touch with us to enquire about availability - we look forward to welcoming you to stay with us.
Marazion Coastal Cottages
We also manage a portfolio of gorgeous holiday cottages and apartments right here in Marazion, so if we're full at the B&B, or if you prefer the self catering option check out www.marazioncoastalcottages.com and get in touch. Some people combine the two options, with their family staying in a cottage whilst Granmum and Grandpa spend time here at St Michael's B&B for a bit of peace and quiet with the grandchildren conveniently just around the corner...... (We're grandparents too and know this works well :-)
Good News for Foodies
We are delighted to say that that Bens Cornish Kitchen (our favourite restaurant) was voted as the Best Restaurant in the South West Region Waitrose Good Food Guide 2016. Ben's was also a finalist in both the 2015 Trencherman’s Awards and the 2015 Food Reader Awards and has 2 AA Rossettes. But don't take our word for it - why not book in for a meal when you stay with us at St Michael's B&B.
