Incredible Hospitality

My partner and I spent a weekend here and as a warning, Room 9 is not representative of the website or hotel ambience.

I am extremely thankful for the upgrade we received on the house and the way the staff dealt with our disappointment, which explains the 5 star rating - particular mention to Jo on reception and Emma in Housekeeping!

The breakfast is tasty but the chef on the Sunday did present the taco dish differently and it was cold on arrival. The selection of cereals and croissants are tasty.

We would come back but would make sure we booked into “The Suite” or “The Retreat”!

Luxury hotel that manages to combine modernity with a relaxed vibe

Everything about this hotel is good - well appointed bedroom, high quality bathroom, great views - particularly from those rooms with a sea view, a very lively bar with terrace, and a decent restaurant which knows what it's good at and recognises that not everyone wants fine dining every night. My only gripe is that there is no English wine on the list - come on, this is Cornwall, with some great wineries, support them!

Beautiful location right on the beech

Stayed for 2 nights at the end of August. Hotel is in great location right on the beech with a lovely veranda overlooking the sea. Great place for drinks and food although gets very busy each evening. Ate in the hotel restaurant one of the nights food and service where brill.
