The hotel is situated near the harbour. 10 minutes walk away. Bed was very comfortable. The breakfast would be very good - normaly - but at our time, a group of 40 people of a german bus tour was there.

Thank you for your review. I’m glad you had a comfortable stay and found the breakfast very good. Occasionally we take tour groups and for their meals we try to allocate them a separate area from other hotel guests. I’m sorry for any inconvenience caused during your recent stay and hope you will return again More

After spending 14 glorious days on holiday in Cornwall we couldn't bear to leave so, late during our second week we decided to try and find a hotel to stay for one final night. Lots of hotels were quite sniffy about the idea of a one night stay despite the fact we would have also been dining in their restaurant... More

What a fantastic hotel everything we wanted. Only problem was the shower room was a bit on the small side in room 14. Staff were very good especially Wayne he was great. Thanks for a great break to all the staff.

My friend had booked the room in advance so I had no idea what to expect. Bed incredibly uncomfortable, as were pillows. Bathroom tiny and although clean looked very 'tired'. Towels were very old and not fresh, they kind of smelt like old cigarette smoke??? The breakfast however was excellent, I ordered Eggs Benedict, although the breakfast staff seemed half... More

I’m sorry you found the bed uncomfortable during your stay with us. Mattresses are checked, turned and replaced regularly and our Pillows were replaced throughout the hotel only a couple of months ago. Unfortunately mattress and pillow preference can be a very personal choice with everyone liking different degrees of hardness/softness. Our hotel bedrooms and bathrooms, although some bathrooms are... More

Stayed here this weekend with my husband and 1 year old son. The location was great , short walk to everything but not just a short walk a nice walk with beautiful scenery. Our room was amazing , we had a delux family room which was huge and had everything we needed, including a massive safe balcony with breathtaking views.... More

The hotel was exactly as expected with friendly staff and spotless rooms.The only disappointing part is that the room allocated had only a very small shower room.If you are of larger build then it would be difficult to see how you would be able to use this without the door to the bedroom being left open. Appreciate you do not... More
