The location could not be bettered and the hotel was smart, clean and tidy with good service offered. The food didn't quite match, unfortunately. We didn't have dinner but we had afternoon tea and breakfast and were disappointed with both. This was a shame as we went for my birthday.

Stayed here for 4 nights and the food was amazing, small helpings but big tastes and filling! The staff are wonderful and so helpful, especially James the doorman, so so helpful. Lovely views of the sea, sadly noisy neighbours ( b****y seagulls ), it's about time they are treated as vermin, they frighten people and steal remorselessly. Would I return,... More

Our standard room was on the first floor and more than adequate in all respects. Facing the sea it had wonderful views and surprisingly the road between hotel and beach was almost empty and always quiet. Bedroom of reasonable size but compensated by having a proper large bathroom well lit by a large window. How I dislike the windowless, cupboard... More

The hotel facilities and the room were excellent as was the service when required.The location of the hotel being close to the beach was very good.It was also close to the castle and not too far from the marina. .

We booked this hotel in May 2015. for 1 night, via Booking.com.as a stopover travelling back from our friends in Penzance. The Hotel is superbly kept and lovely location. However we were put in a room no.106, right in the back of the hotel, supposedly a twin room but it was not. It was so small and at a charge... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. I apologise that you did not enjoy your room during your stay with us. I have checked our planner for that night and we only had one double room vacant so we would have unfortunately been unable to offer a upgrade. We have a variety of room categories at the... More

We stayed at TRD for only one night but found it to be a very well run hotel. The staff extremely courteous and well trained. It was very clean, tastefully decorated with spacious lounges, bars and a beautiful restaurant with great sea views. The terrace and lawns were a lovely place to be on warm, sunny days. We just booked... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights last week. The hotel on first impression was that it was a traditional sea side hotel and what struck us the most was how spotless and literally gleaming it was. Yes the room we had was small (not worth the money we paid) and overlooking the car park but it was beautifully... More
