The hotel is in a stunning location with lovely views over the beautiful gardens and sea. The service was good and all staff were excellent. We ate in the hotel and the food was good but the dining area was very cramped with tables too close to each other, breakfast was excellent. We took a late booking and only room... More

Stayed for a few days with my family at the charming little beach hut just across the lawn of Driftwood Hotel. A perfect way of spending a few days with family or friends. The hut itself was rather simple but charming, although we where a bit bothered with the nasty small that came of and on, especially after using the... More

I booked two nights as a surprise to celebrate my husband's Birthday. The restaurant was the first reason I looked it up and the views were the deal maker. When we got there the room was lovely, views from both windows and it felt like a hideaway. The surrounding gardens and beach views are so good to wake up to.... More

Booked this hotel for a surprise romantic getaway with the other half, the location is breath taking, the gardens are beautiful and the beach is secluded and peaceful. We stayed for 1 night in room 8, the room was clean with a very big bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had dinner here on the night and it... More

If you are looking for a place with an amazing waterfront location with wonderful coastline views, with easy access to much of the best Cornwall has to offer, then the Driftwood will be perfect. It is located about 10 minutes from trendy St. Mawes but without the congestion (and noise); access to some locations offers the option of a fun... More

My husband and I, together with our 11 year old grandaughter and her friend, stayed at the Driftwood two weeks ago. We had a wonderful holiday, the hotel is very comfortable and the owners and staff are very professional, welcoming and friendly, without being intrusive. The location is beautiful and the beach peaceful, whilst its rocks and pools are fun... More

We stayed at the Driftwood with our young daughter as part of our summer holiday. This hotel is in the most beautiful location and our bedroom suite, which had a small single room attached for our daughter, looked out over the sea. The interior design is tasteful and fits well with the coastal surroundings. The staff are helpful and well... More

Visited this as a family of four - 2 adults plus a 6 and 3 year old. It's one of those places where you are instantly at ease and relaxed at. The website photos don't do justice to the beach which was far far larger than we thought and was absolutely deserted. The food was top notch for us (we... More

My brother in law and his partner had visited this property last year and spoke well of the cuisine. Looking for a couple of extra days at the end of our annual holiday we booked into Driftwood, and we were not disappointed. The hotel does not naturally cope with children when it comes to dining, but with a little persuasion... More

We spent two nights here and I wish it could have been longer. There are so many wonderful things about this place and they have been said already on TA. I was immensely relaxed from the moment I arrived. The staff were just incredible, friendly and attentive but never overbearing - we always felt we had space and privacy. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Imagine your perfect holiday - a stylish, privately run Cornish Beach House Hotel, overlooking the stunning Gerrans Bay, near the pretty village of Portscatho, near St Mawes South Cornwall. Driftwood is like no other boutique hotel in Cornwall. Driftwood has the friendly informal service, a michelin star restaurant, and the efficiency you would expect. Where else can you walk down a wooded path, to your own beach and cove? Where else can you lie back on a steamer chair, with a glass of wine, and enjoy an unbroken sea view. Where else can you eat the best, locally sourced food, perhaps lobster caught that morning, or crab from the bay? Whoever you are or whatever your looking for, whether that be a family holiday, a boutique or romantic hotel in Cornwall, Driftwood is perfect for all your needs. At Driftwood, families can be as well looked after as romantic couples or small groups of grown-ups. ... more   less
