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

Booked this hotel for one night on 28 May 2015 and must say we were not disappointed. And if you did not book a sea facing room, you can still take the public footpath, just 1 min away from the hotel down to Carbis Bay beach, about 300 yards away. Ingo the Manager of the hotel was exceptionally friendly, warm... More

Booked this hotel at the last minute as we wanted to extend our stay in Cornwall. Whilst the Hotel is clearly geared towards coach parties we enjoyed our couple of days there. I booked a room with a sea view and wasn't disappointed with lovely view across Carbis Bay. The room was well appointed and the bed very comfy. As... More
