This hotel is a beautiful old building with stunning views and delicious food. Unfortunately, the hotel is in need of a substantial amount of renovation work and the rooms require updating. Our room was tiny and we could hardly get into the shower. Also, the staff are shabbily attired and have no idea how to serve in the restaurant but... More

Spent 2 nights here with 3 golfing friends in early September. All of us agreed the food was really excellent. Great choice, well presented, tasty and generous portions. Following this golfing break my wife and I had a holiday in rural France. We went to numerous restaurants but none of them had such good food or such good value as... More

As a group of eight golfers we had a fabulous time at this Cornish hidden gem this week. The imposing stone building 1880'shas been quite uniquely restored recently and stands overlooking the sea with far reaching views. The interior is just as period with spotless and timeless decor . Our rooms were all different as to size with bath or... More

Had 3 day golf break at this hotel. Weather was 3 days glorious sunshine. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Food (breakfast and 3 course dinner) was good and plentiful with wide variety to choose from. Room 23 was small and cramped but adequate although could do with shower curtain/screen over bath/shower. 3 rounds of golf on an interesting and... More

We found this hotel on the last day of our two week holiday so only had the opportunity to visit it once. The food was excellent with a fantastic choice across all three courses. Only down side was the tea and coffee (which was included in the price). It was served in the lounge which was lovely but it was... More

We booked the bistro for a meal on the recommendation of the self catering house where we are holidaying. Bad decision! Phone booking was fine - I asked for the bistro for Saturday night, but they were full, so suggested the Sunday night. I chose the bistro as we have youngish children and I thought it would be a little... More

It is rare to find a hotel in such a wonderful location, offer a 2 course weekday lunch at £11 - but to be able to do all this and turn out food at such high quality is very rare indeed. The hotel is located at Portwrinkle which is close to Downderry in South East Cornwall, definitely worth a visit.

As a family we have visited Whitsand Bay Hotel many times over the years and it always feels good to return. It is a family run hotel, with all the staff being very helpful and pleasant, plenty to do for families on site and near. Wifi is free, but mainly around the reception area, which was great for us because... More

This is a wonderful place to eat, and is in a beautiful part of Cornwall. It's well worth the effort of searching out the place and having a meal there. The hotel has a lovely feel to it, quintessentially English, very much like a gentleman's residence - high moulded ceilings, broad corridors, beautiful stained glass window on the stairs, panelled...

Been here before and knew what to expect which is a traditional hotel in a great setting attached to a well presented golf course. We booked late and had an amazing 2 night bed and breakfast offer which also included a free (and decent) cream tea. Yes it was a small twin room on the top floor, but this was... More
