Depending on what you are looking for in a Southern English beachside hotel ( and yes - the beach is a short walk away, the hotel is atop a small cliff with uninterrupted Cornwall coastal views ), this could be your perfect holiday destination. However, as always, I will start with the caveats.... The Whitsand Bay Hotel is isolated. Situated... More

Used hotel when staying nearby, decent food and good service. Nice location and appeared to be well kept, very busy for remote location which I took to be a good sign. Would consider if was returning to the area.

What a structure! Gray stone, imposing and looking out over the sea. The outside is better than the inside. Serviceable rooms, not especially spacious with a very small bathroom and the tiniest shower, ever. We did have one suitcase stand but the suitcases take up any and all leftover space. There is not a lot here that can be called... More

Spent two very pleasant nights here in room 23. Staff attentive and friendly. Very nice traditional old world manor house hotel. Excellent buffet breakfast and fantastic Cornish cooked breakfast available until 0930. Our room was perfect. Very good beach directly infront of hotel. This hotel is an excellent choice if you want to get away from the daily grind. And... More

Excellent lunch enjoyed here with very nice menu, good service and the most wonderful view imaginable. We took advantage of their special lunch time discount offer which translates to very good value indeed. Looking forward to visiting again soon.

This hotel, a lovely old Manor House in a beautiful part of the world, has the potential to be fantastic but is badly let down by poor service and shabby public areas. Dinner was nice, but again let down by indifferent service. My room (room 1) was nice with great views but it isn't a suite (which is what it... More
