Understated and modest entrance from the road is soon upstaged and understood the moment you walk in. Well thought out, that! Olga Polizzi has made this a home from home in the most accommodating and comforting sense. The decor is cleverly designed, as is the layout. There's attention to detail on a human scale, an enveloping and warm level. Add... More

Excellent Hotel for all occasions .Food is always up to a high standard, service professional without being fussy, relaxed and welcoming every time. Enjoyed Scallops, pickled carrots, coriander, yogurt as starter-Cornish Fillet of beef, roasted new potatoes, red onions, Crown Prince squash, cavolo nero and lemon posset shortbread, pomegranate, clementines on last visit---all perfect

We had a one night stop here, staying in the Lamorran Suite. The room - a family suite of three bedrooms, two baths, and a generous living room, plus a superb full length balcony with room for meals outside, sun loungers, all with a sea view. The room was superb - quality mattresses, linens, double ended baths with ample room... More

We fist discovered this place by accident about 6 years ago, so when we were in the area, we decided to revisit St Mawes simply to have afternoon tea at this place. One day we will stay in the hotel. Had tea and the lightest of scones out on the terrace. Even though it was raining, we were sheltered by... More

Leila and her team went above and beyond the call of duty for our wedding. As a family of "foodies" everyone commented that it was the best food they had ever tasted at a wedding. The service was flawless and the welcoming and friendly staff were nothing short of the best I have come across. The cinema room was laid... More

I stayed here with my partner for three nights in November. From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and at ease. The Staff are friendly, but also know when to let you be alone. The food in the restaurant was fresh. seasonal and complex. The rooms were calm and decorated with finesse. We both felt that nothing was going... More

We are staying in St.Mawes for a few days days and visited the restaurant in the Tresanton hotel. Everything was perfect. The design of the furnishings, the bar area on ground floor, the roaring fire in the lounge area, and the restaurant. The service was very good, showing excellent management, and the food was a very high standard. Being a... More

It’s about time the Blue Lamb reviewed the Hotel Tresanton; after all, we’ve stayed here quite a few times – including before Olga Polizzi waved her designer wand over the building and transformed it with her magic. We’ve had time to discover our favourite room (no, we’re not telling you which one), the nicest table to sit at for dinner... More
