Another year and another six nights at our favourite Cornish location; right on the southern end of Fistral Beach. Trip by self, wife and two teenagers - two rooms, one double one twin. As frequent customers we were treated to a new scheme of Loyalty Credits instead of a discounted holiday price - not altogether favoured by us but useful... More

We only stayed one saturday night a couple weeks ago, and were very happy with the quality of the hotel and the location. It was the best value for the money in the area, and we booked on short notice (a couple days before). We arrived late at night, yet the staff at the reception and the bar were super... More

Thank you to the Esplanade Hotel for making our wedding anniversary a perfect break. We were fortunate to be given a sea view room with a balcony and this was decorated by Martine (I hope that was her name) with towel made swans, petals on the bed, chocolates and a card. A soak in the huge bath, wrapped in the... More

This is our third stay at the Esplanade and already I'm looking forward to my fourth! The location is perfect so some hotels might rest on their laurels and rely on the incredible views to sell themselves but not the Esplanade. The service is faultless - from booking through to check out, nothing is too much trouble. We had two... More

Its wise of the hotel to not have pictures of the exterior on the website. The architecture is bad and it looks cheap. Interior is old and out of date. Its a lot of stairs and steps to access the rooms. Our room was a family room with lower standard then expected. The breakfast was ok but dinner was no... More

Really good experience here, particularly after we had a nightmare with our flight to scilly cancelled. We stayed on the Friday night before an early flight the next day to scilly. The rooms are nothing extraordinary but perfectly good, especially given we need a room big enough for 2 adults, 3 young children and a dog. We had room 303... More

This place is all about the views and location. The rooms are nothing to get excited about (granted i usually go for the more budget end) but they give you what you need. Cumfy bed and warm shower. The thing that sets this place out from the rest is the view in the foyer. Sitting on the south end on... More
