Our room was spacious with a large window overlooking an autumnal garden with Godrevy Lighthouse in the distants.The heating could be adjusted as we needed it. pThere was a good choice of food which was appetizing...

Returned from a short break to the Cottage Hotel last week, and as we drew up to the hotel thought it was such a grey and depressing building, not helped by the pots of dead plants and scruffy welcome sign. It is only a 2 star hotel so didn't expect too much The staff were cheerful and welcoming and our... More

Which will collapse and die first the guests or building? Not a dirty hotel as such, but lost marks on not properly maintaining the grounds e.g the pool. No one likes to see anything run down do they ! Thank The Lord for some of the European staff as an eye pleaser, if I had to continuously look at the... More

The food was good and the staff were always helpful and keen to please, would have liked more beer on the tap choices.Theres... More

Beautiful location is the best I can say but the hotel building is quite ugly. Breakfast was ok but poor choice for vegetarians, entertainment mediocre at best. Room was clean but dated and bathroom could do with an overhaul. Hall and landing to our room hadn't been vacuumed in over a week. Evening meals were shocking. Quality was dreadful, saving... More

Gorgeous location but was it worth it? Dunno, but I can tell you tit was not much fun. On the 2nd night, about 2.30am, unable to sleep because a couple on the floor below were engaged in a several-hours-long screaming match with the sound of solid things being hurled around the room, I was already on edge. Tried the usual... More
