For me the two things that stood out where the beautiful views from the Terrace Bar, and the excellent staff. They are clearly well trained, very professional, but at the same time very friendly. The rooms are not the largest, but are well decorated and exceptionally clean. Just a slight criticism with the food. On two occasions in the Restaurant... More

The attention to detail by the helpful staff is amazing. The rooms are clean, stylish and comfortable. The food is locally sourced when possible, creatively presented and flavorful. Nothing lacking at all.

We decided to take a break at short notice and a friend suggested we stay here. We were so pleased we took their advice. The hotel has a panoramic view of the sea and is very impressive with its well manicured lawns and patio facing the sea. All the staff were friendly smartly dressed and keen to make our stay...

Staff well trained and most helpful (especially James at the front door!), decor well thought out and restful; food extremely good, well served and presented. What's not to like? Two small minuses - the towels unfortunately have a slight chemical smell which is not nice; and the helpings of meat on the plate on two nights we ate in the... More

Here for a few nights during as our base for seeing this region of Cornwall. Part of a Great Rail Holiday, but one would not know that the hotel was providing for a company organised group, as there is no special menu or group seating nor a block meal time for breakfast or dinner. From the moment of arrival, the... More

Stayed for a weekend, another visit to our daughter working in Falmouth. Arrived after midnight on Saturday morning , no problem getting let in by the night porter. I have stayed at a number of the hotels in Falmouth over the last few years. The difference here is money has been spent on the hotel and the staff gave very... More

Superb Hotel in a lovely location with fabulous sea views. enjoyed the service of the Concierge, reception and service staff, all were exceptionally helpful and very friendly.The room was very clean and comfortable but we also loved the dining room and Terrace Bar. Both were beautifully decorated and had exceptional sea views. Felt very "at home".

Had a lovely four night stay in May and despite the yellow weather warning of gale force winds we managed to get out and about and explore some of Cornwall's glorious gardens. The staff are friendly and attentive, particularly James who rushed out of the hotel to help us with our luggage in the rain - such a lovely welcome.... More

Just returned from two night stay at this hotel. We had a suite which was spacious and absolutley spotless everything was gleaming like new. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was scrumptious, we could not fault the hotel in any way. We would highly recommend this hotel. Mr & Mrs Dann.
