We did not stay here but visited on an evening for drinks and a bite to eat. It is a brewery chain which is a shame but they have a lovely fire in the bar area and is dog friendly. The sea views are exceptional. I ordered the crab which was too cold. It should have been served at room... More

We booked a superior room with a balcony overlooking Porthminster beach for a two day break in mid January. Views fantastic (like being on a ship). Breakfast excellent. Easy walk in to St Ives. Sound of waves breaking on the beach was magical. The reason it's not a 5 is that the bed was far too soft and we both... More

We took time out and had a four day break in Cornwall. The hotel was great. It stood on a headland and commanded fantastic views. It was only a short walk into the Town centre. It had a good restaurant and very friendly staff. The welcome was good and their pleasant approach to customers did not falter. The hotel provided... More

This has got to be one the best settings for a hotel in the south west with great views all round. We had a bargain break two night stay which was excellent value. Courteous and attentive staff, warm and comfortable accommodation plus excellent food made this a very enjoyable stay - even the weather was kind!

I have been critical of this brewery chain in the past, so approached our short stay in this hotel with some trepidation. However, I should not have worried. Our stay was wonderful, the location , staff and food was excellent, we are already planning a return visit. No more to say!
