Access Statement for  The Smugglers Inn Hotel

Little Carloggas, St Mawgan, Cornwall TR8 4EQ


Situated just above the beautiful little historic village of St Mawgan, right next to Newquay Airport is the Smugglers Inn Hotel. It is the perfect place to stay whether you are visiting for business or leisure. We are located just a 4 minute walk, or 45 second taxi ride from the Airport terminal building and even though we are so close to the airport we are in a very quiet position with very little noise during the day and very rarely any noise during the night.

When approaching the hotel you will find us settled some 15 yards back off the road down a small incline to the lane (no through traffic) which runs along the front of the property.

We offer 7 en suite bedrooms all situated on the first floor of the hotel with access via stairs with 13 treads to the landing from which all rooms have level access. One room, ‘Dunlin’, has one step up into the en suite facilities from the bedroom. All other rooms have level carpeted floors. All corridors are carpeted.

We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone 01637 860595 or email
