Disappointing venue to stay, our room was small stuffy and a bit dreary. Towel rail in bathroom on permanently(no switch) so bathroom unbearable and warm. Lots of energetic children screeching and playing which is great to see them having fun, but gets a bit frustrating when trying to take a snooze in the sun. Food was good and staff excellent,...

Magical, misty, King Arthur/Lady of The Lake type view - sensory. Couldn't fault the natural beauty of the hotel or the furnishings. A shabby country English chic that will never date or fall apart. Unlike the dining experience. Drinks on the terrace morphed into drinks that never arrived, A stalwart French waitress saved the night all night with a sensational... More

Sadly, this review is in the nature of a warning. The property of the Hotel Tresanton is charming, with magnificent views of an idyllic Cornish harbor, and zig-zag stairways leading up to the terrace where we stayed amongst fragrant rosemary, lavender and many other beautiful plants. HOWEVER. It is not a luxury property as billed. The hotel is run-down, and... More

I am really sorry the hotel did not match your expectations. I hope you will accept my sincere apology. You mentioned during your stay that you did not find your bed comfortable. We use Hypnos beds and usually receive great feedback from our guests about these mattresses. Unfortunately the hotel was fully booked and we could not offer you a... More

We have dined here before and know the hotel well although this was our first stay. I always thought it was good now I know. The place has always looked the part with every room having a sea view and that makes it special. What makes it very special is the attention to detail. We went straight to the car... More

We had been looking forward to a meal at the Hotel Tresanton to celebrate a special occasion. We were extremely disappointed for the following reasons; Exceptionally slow service when ordering drinks Seagulls devouring left over food on the terrace Small portions Cramped restaurant - not the place for an intimate dinner Finally topped off by our waitress announcing our bill...

When you have been wanting to do something for such a long time, you hope it lives up to your expectations. Hotel Tresanton certainly does and gives you more. All the staff without exception were professional and very happy to make your stay one to remember. All the rooms have sea views and what fabulous views they were. The rooms... More

London prices, very mediocre provincial service. Looking a bit rough around the edges - both the decor and the attitude. Just not worth the money. If it had glory days it's passed them. Think Brazilian football team. Come to think about it probably more like the England football team.

A previous reviewer complained bitterly about having to climb up to a room in the upper Tresanton building. When I stayed there for three nights in May, I also had a room on the upper level of the upper building. This meant I had to go out the back door of the upper level of the lower building, walk on...

Had a great long weekend with service, food and the whole experience 1st rate. When the sun is shining and you sit out on the terraces, you will fall in love with the place. Well worth the trip, you won't be dissapointed

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with a stay at the Tresanton 'Claridges of the South West' The service, attention to detail and location is second to none. Our room was lovely, very comfortable, with an amazing terrace and view. Gardens are lovely, valet parking, discreet but attentive service, well trained and friendly staff, amazing views, good food and we... More
