Best in Bude, a Top Cornwall Hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

At the entrance to the hotel from the carpark there is a sign declaring that this hotel breaks the mould of British seaside hotels. And thank heaven it does! Wary of crummy British hotels with creaking stairs, dim rooms with rubbish beds, and dark old furniture where the wardrobe creaks open and prods you from behind, this hotel is very removed from this. Totally renovated, modern and light rooms, this hotel buzzes with Mediterranean style. Room seven especially has an enormous deck, a great view, and is as nice a room as you will find anywhere. Queen size bed, a fridge, no tub but a walk in shower. If the other rooms are half as good as this one you will still be comfortable. The restaurant is easily the best in Bude. Good value for the quality, and the wine list has something for everyone at great prices.
Totally booked out in the high season and deservedly so, yet the prices are reasonable especially for half board.
A family run hotel and a tribute to them. Lovely staff.
There is some parking, 7? spaces for the sixteen rooms but free parking right outside on the road. We had no trouble finding parking which is always a challenge in Cornwall.
Terrific stay. One of the best hotels in Cornwall without any doubt.

Great position overlooking the bay/beach and very helpful/friendly staff. We had a lovely room with balcony with great views. Downside was that it was immediately over the busy and noisy bar terrace and as there was no a/c in the room if you closed the patio doors to close out the noise the room became really hot.
But great location and we would probably go back - just not to this room!

Ideal hotel for a Seaside Break

We’ve stayed here three years running and recommend it. The rooms are large and comfortable, the bar and restaurant are hard to beat in Bude and the staff are lovely. The hotel is ideally located for the beach and has great views.

Enjoyable and Professional
