My girlfriend and I stayed at St Petroc's as a treat for my 30th birthday. Upon entering we were greeted by the friendly receptionist who checked us in very swiftly and gave us some very helpful tips on where things were in Padstow. We were then shown to our room which was in the attic of the building. The room... More

Decided to go to St Petroc's for my wife's birthday meal. Really glad we did. Friendly welcome, directed to the lounge for drinks and to consider the menu. Stein's champagne was delicious. My wife has an egg allergy and we were surprised that an entire new menu had been printed for her to set out what she could have. Chose... More

The overall experience was little short of fantastic - for the first time in all my reviews for Trip Advisor I can't really think of one even slightly negative comment. The room was great, the location was minutes walk from Padstow harbour, the food was fabulous (both evening meal,lunch and breakfast)…….and if that's not all the staff were polite, helpful…just...

We spent three nights last week at St Petrocs and had a lovely time. The room was excellent, recently decorated and with a new bathroom, all done to a very high standard with quality finishes and most importantly a comfortable bed. We had opted for the 'winter package' and ate at the Cafe for Sunday lunch and the Bistro two... More

Not only is Rick Stein a great chef but he is also an exceptional hotelier. I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and I have to say I couldn't fault anything.
