The staff could not do enough for us and we were always greeted with a smile. Many thanks for the surprise anniversary greeting that awaited us on arrival. The views were spectacular and added greatly to the... More

We have just returned from 1 weeks holiday in Esplanade Hotel at Fistral. We have 2 children (7&4/5!) Our little girl was 5 while on holiday and the hotel made a real fuss of her - balloons at breakfast / balloons in our room when we returned from our day out. She really felt special. Great location - with Showers... More

Only a 1 night stay to start our holidays but what a great hotel. The staff couldn't do enough for us. Facilities we're really good, room was perfect for our family and the breakfast and service was fantastic. My only niggle was the rather steep prices at the bar but made up by the view from the conservatory!

Again a wonderful stay and even better this time as we were given a loyalty bonus which we could use towards our food.

I stayed here over the weekend for a Surf and music festival. The location was perfect as it was right ontop of Fistral Beach where the Surf competitions were happening. We also organised surf lessons with the school attached to the hotel which were excellent. The pool was a lot smaller than it appeared in photos and there was also... More

Customer service, what customer service? Nobody greets you ever! The sevice is slow at best. I have never been ignored by so many people: plenty of staff, but nobody to come to you and offer you drinks, take your order, nothing! Restaurant manager? No interpersonal skill, painful to witness. Do not order the pizza no matter what you do: it... More

Wow! Friendly greeting and our parking spot was all ready for us. I honestly cannot find any fault with this hotel. We loved our stay. Room 213 was superb. Newly furnished, fresh linen and the room was absolutely spotless. Very cosy, home from home. We got very lucky with the weather and explored Cornwall. This location was perfect! Everyone at... More
