Friendly manager ( who has been there for 3 years ) he stayed on when the hotel changed ownership in 2015 . Helpful staff . Bistro dining in the conservatory which is also used for breakfasts .

With such great reviews, one expects a lot. Talland Bay is a delightful hotel, with pleasant staff. Our room was lovely, spacious, big enough for a travel cot and a dog and we could fault nothing in our room bar a couple of high cobwebs above the bed. The cream tea was lovely in the lounge, the brasserie dinner (we... More

We visited this hotel during an oldtimer trip through Cornwall. This place was truly magic. We received a warm welcome and were treated like kings. We received aa free upgrade of our room. Dinner was really exquisite ! Will certainly come here again !

The food was spot on and the atmosphere friendly and intimate. The place is a little quirky in places with regard to decor, which was fun however the... More

We have just returned from a fantastic short break at Talland Bay Hotel. We can only reiterate what everyone else has said: a warm welcome, fantastic service, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, superb food and the icing the the cake for us was the outstanding welcome given to our dogs. Despite being in a dog-friendly room there was no evidence of... More

We went for a four night break in January , the weather was wet & windy & we were looking forward to four days of cosseting . We... More

I visited with my hubby for a 3 day break for my hubby's 65th birthday. The room we originally booked was unavailable due to an electrical fault, which can happen at any hotel. We were offered another room which was just as fantastic as the first one. Very large bed, in a spacious room with views over the hotel grounds... More

Great service' fantastic fine dining, really good location on the cliffs above the bay' ideal for walkers. The only thing I didn't like were dogs in the Brasserie during Breakdast and Dinner. I knew it was a dog friendly hotel but call me old fashioned but I thought that was a mutt too far. Other than that minor observation it... More
