Built in 1750, Jamaica Inn is a stunning coaching inn situated on the borders of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall. Famous for being the base of smugglers in the past, it is most commonly known as the setting for Daphne du Maurier's eponymous novel. The inn is steeped in history and is host to a number of ghosts...

Jamaica Inn, Cornwall's legendary coaching house which was immortalised in Daphne du Maurier's novel of the same name, has stood high on Bodmin Moor for over four centuries.

Set in one of the most breathtaking locations in Cornwall, Jamaica Inn welcomes locals and travellers alike, so why not stop off on your way to the County's attractions such as the world famous Eden Project and Falmouth's National Maritime Museum? Who knows, you may even see a ghost!

From breakfast until late evening, you can enjoy an extensive range of home cooked food for all the family.

With its cobbled courtyard, beamed ceilings, roaring log fires and real ales, Jamaica Inn's friendly, warm atmosphere welcomes you at any time of the year, whether you are a local, a visitor or just passing through.

We have one of the finest collections of smuggling memorabilia at the Smugglers Museum and the Daphne du Maurier Room honours the great writer.

Stay the night in one of our romantic four-poster, en-suite rooms and look out over the beautiful wilderness of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall.

Hotel Reviews

After watching the vigils from most haunted on TV, myself and 5 others had to go and visit since we lived in the next county. Jamaica Inn provides a great service with excellent spacious rooms and a fantastic location on Bodmin Moor. Once the frequent fog settles around the moor at night we knew we were in for one night of horror. Armed with our digital equipment we took many many pictures of light orbs and other light anominilies that night whilst holding our own vigil. The floorboards creak and the sense of intensity makes one night at Jamaica Inn worth the money and the travelling.

Stayed in room 5 on 15th April, 2006. It was a very spooky place - I hardly slept a wink. I took photos before every battery i tried in my digital camera just drained. I caught several ghastly images in the nets in both the bedroom and bathroom. Clear as day...a man wearing a tricorn hat, a man with a fat face and big lips with a beard, and a lady and child in the bathroom nets. I was freaked right out, but im going back again...

I stayed in the Jamaica Inn for a weekend in October 2005 - 2nd wedding anniversary (I drag my husband to the best places!) We stayed in room 5. The hotel is interesting but a touch over commercialised - Its so steeped in history that you can't fail to get a sense of it. Paranormally it was quiet - I think the ghosts had gone out. I'd love to go again and most definitely out of season - November or Feb maybe.
