Got this on an online deal and was therefore a tad nervous. Staff helpfull from the off, other guests not quite like us. However, room a tad 'old skool' but lovely and clean with utterly stunning views over Carbiss Bay. breakfast time 1 hour from 08.00 not ideal but cooked to order and ok. Staff friendly and willing.

Stayed at this hotel for a week in August 2015. Almost every single aspect of the stay was a higher standard than expected given we had knowingly booked a cheap getaway to Cornwall. All the staff that I encountered were friendly (whatever the time of day) and always happy to help. The service in the restaurant was brilliant and even... More

Being a southerner now living in Scotland,Cornwall was a regular [4/5 times a year] favourite haunt,but due to the distance and reluctance to undertake such a mammoth journey it had been far too long since my last visit.However,a local coach tour company advertised a break in Carbis Bay and after great consideration of the journey involved,we decided to book.

For info I am writing this for my retired parents who do not have a computer. They have written what they wanted me to say. Just recently arrived home from a self-drive holiday through Alfa Travel to this hotel. Excellent hotel, staff and manager, all very helpful and extremely polite and obliging. Lovely location and very clean with delicious meals.... More

Our third stay and ok for short breaks. This is a pleasant enough hotel - basic, but pretty good value. The meals are, again, basic and all, including breakfast, served to the table, by very friendly and helpful waiters/waitresses. It is best if your table is away from the main area as it is very compact and extremely busy, with... More

Arrived at hotel after 7 hour journey to a not very welcoming reception. Dull and not very clean windows in and out! Blown glass in one of the reception windows not very nice either. The whole place has got lost in the wartime decorations all around. Horrible dusty smell in a large lounge which I would never have sat in... More
