Thank you for your 5 star review and kind comments about the quality of our food and the friendly service you experienced during your visit with a small group of friends. Our coastal golf course also enjoys the same spectacular views of Whitsand Bay, along the Rame Peninsular – often referred to as the forgotten corner of Cornwall. We hope... More

This is to all intents and purposes a golfing hotel as it is situated within walking distance of the Whitsand Bay Golf Course. However, it is family run and it is also a good hotel for family holidays as well (dogs are welcome). The hotel is solidly built and overlooks the stunning Whitstand Bay. The gardens are well kept and... More

friendly staff (family run) and very good food (although always huge portions...beware small eaters like myself, you have to ask for small portions!!) a clean room, & fabulous views close to rugged coast walks and beaches at Portwrinkle, indoor pool are the positives slightly tatty round the edges (knackered lampshades in the lounge areas is a prime example) so expect...

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.
