Great weekend at Portwrinkle and the Whitsand Bay Hotel, great food, comfortable rooms and cosy bar and lounge areas. A couple of criticisms, bar closes too early and the place could do with a little investment, just needs smartening up a bit, would then feel a bit more luxurious.

There were lots of positives to our stay, hence the title, but also a few things that were just a few changes away from deserving a five star review. My partner and I visited for 2 nights, with 6 others for a birthday weekend away. It was our first visit, although other members of the group had stayed before and... More

Wow! What a weekend, the staff at and hotel could not have done anymore to make this the best weekend of our lives. The food for the wedding breakfast, the view of the sea from the ceremony room and the efficiency and friendliness of the staff were all second to none. We could not have asked for a better place...

If you want a chill out this hotel and location ticks the boxes. We booked a three night stay offer to incl. Cornish breakfast in Jan.2015 and used the Hotels reasonably priced restaurant each evening. The adjoining golf course is challenging and offers fantastic scenery. The staff are friendly and helpful. Would not hesitate for another visit.

Fantastic venue, terrific accommodation, super staff and excellent food. What a fantastic weekend you provided for our daughter's wedding. I cannot thank you enough. Many of us travelled over 200 miles and were rewarded with a perfect setting and a dream wedding. Thank you all Allen and Janet (the very proud parents)

The Whitsand Bay is "probably the most dog friendly hotel in the west" - I never stopped wagging my tail from start to finish ! From being shown around personally by Emma (Resident Woofceptionist) to sharing my owners sausages after breakfast I had a great time - even the staff were on first name terms when I left. The beach... More

Whitsand Bay Hotel is in an impressive location high up looking down on the bay below. We were received well and felt comfortable right from our arrival. Our room was quite large and furnished in a traditional style with a sea view. When we were there in January 2014 we were looking forward to using the leisure complex, however the... More

A lovely hotel with helpful, warm & friendly staff. Food was both fantastic and plentiful. Great lounge & bar for just sitting and relaxing, maybe chatting with the locals. Family owned and locally staffed. Ideal for a golfing getaway or just enjoying Cornwall. We are certain to return...
