What a fantastic hotel. From the moment we arrived and received a complimentary room upgrade to the moment we left with our free lollipops we enjoyed every moment of our stay at this lovely hotel. The owners have obviously gone to a great deal of trouble to get just the right kind of interior design that exudes taste, class but... More

This hotel is a real gem! Staff throughout the hotel are so polite and could not be more helpful.. We had one of the smaller rooms, however this was well appointed, very clean and very comfortable. Very good value. Staying for 2 nights, we ate twice in the restaurant. This is a 'proper' silver service restaurant and the food is... More

Just returned home from 5-nights at Talland Bay with our two dogs. The dogs loved it as much as we did. The staff are all very friendly, helpful efficient and professional. We had a cottage at the rear of the main building, very pleasantly decorated, clean and warm with a very large comfortable bed. We love the quirky collection of... More

We have visited Talland Bay Hotel many times for lunch with friends but decided last weekend to treat ourselves to a stay there. We booked one of the cottages for two nights which was just perfect. The room was beautifully styled and the bed was so comfy we slept like logs. I am coeliac and eating away from home can... More

This was our second visit to the Talland Bay and it was just as fascinating and enjoyable as the first. The quirky artwork, both in the hotel and in the beautiful gardens, has to be seen to be appreciated. We had our favourite room (28) again, which meant that when we awoke from our comfortable night's sleep, we we were... More

On arrival one is struck firstly by the view and secondly by a mix of modern and traditional sculptures, Parking is highly organised and mainly at the back of the hotel reached by a gravelled driveway. We had a lovely warm welcome by a nice young lady who showed us to our room and explained along the way what was... More

A Sunday lunch with friends, an eclectic mix of artwork made the experience worthwhile. The service was very good and the starters generously proportioned however there was not enough brown bread for all of us and the waiter didn't know if there was more or look for it. The roast beef was not anything to write home about unfortunately but... More

Living in Cornwall we naturally appreciate it's rugged coastline and dramatic scenery but an off the cuff, last minute google search resulted in a real find. The Talland Bay Hotel is immaculately kept; a quiet retreat of cliff top beauty boasting a spectacular vista. On arrival we were delighted to be offered a free upgrade to an impressive room with...
