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.

The Real Cornish Breakfast Award:
It's not just our guests who comment on the quality of Alison's locally sourced freshly cooked breakfasts! Judged by an esteemed panel that includes top national journalists and business experts, the Choose Cornish Awards celebrate the businesses that do the most to promote the ethos of the Choose Cornish campaign. This year attracted a record number of entries from a diverse range of businesses. The shortlisting job was therefore doubly difficult, but resulted in some outstanding entrants being selected to undergo the final round of judging. The Real Cornish Breakfast Award, sponsored by Visit Cornwall, champions those who make the most of Cornish ingredients while also ensuring quality, choice and service for their breakfast experience. The shortlisted businesses are: St Michael’s B&B in Marazion, The Scarlet in Mawgan Porth and Woodlands Country House B&B near Padstow. The winning breakfast will be announced on 22nd September.... watch this space :-)http://www.choosecornish.co.uk/2014/05/2014shortlist/
AA Friendliest B&B of the Year Finalist 2014 - 2015
We are thrilled to announce that St Michaels B&B was nominated by AA Inspectors as being one of just 25 B&B's from over 3,000 in the UK AA Guest Accommodation Scheme, to be a finalist in the 2014-15 'Friendliest B&B of the Year' Awards. We were presented with a Finalist Certificate and Inscribed Decanter at a celebratory luncheon in the St Ermin's Hotel in London on 13th May. We feel very honoured and flattered have been selected as a finalist. This award is not something we applied for or expected, and the announcement came completely out of the blue and was a total surprise for us both.
Good News for Dog Owners
Although we cannot accept pets of any description inside St Michael's B&B, we are pleased to say that dog owners can now bring their dog with them on holiday and leave it at 'Dog Collars Home Boarding' in Marazion. Basically your dog sleeps over at 'Dog Collars' (in the home of our local Church of England Priest),and you collect it in the morning and take it ourt with you during the day.
