We visited the Driftwood for dinner twice last week. We only intended to go once but the food was so spectacular that we cancelled our other reservation and returned. Lovely ambience, relaxed but very professional and proper. Would be delighted to stay there. The food was a revelation - well worth a michelin star. It manages to be foodie but... More

We stayed here in early March and arrived on a cold and windy Friday afternoon, but the warm and intimate welcome we received more than made up for this and set the precident for what would be the most outstanding stay. From start to finish we never wanted for anything, the service was the best I have received in any... More

I was very lucky to be treated for the second year running by my lovely daughter. From the moment you arrive you know that you are somewhere special. The hotel is beautiful, tastefully furnished and the surroundings are breathtakingly lovely. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly attentive staff. We enjoyed one of the tasting menus for dinner and... More

We arrived to glorious sunshine. Paul greeted us well and happy. He gave us an individual tour of the hotel!!!! Never have we experienced this before, and I may say What a lovely experience. A sneaky glass of wine as we find the most beautiful situated room we have ever experienced (Room 8). We stayed with a 12 year old!!!!... More

Our second visit to the Driftwood for a meal with family. The quality of the food, its presentation and service were all top class. I would have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant to others and I expect the hotel is every bit as good. Great evening ! We will definitely be back in the future.

We stayed at Drfitwood for two nights and had a wonderful stay. The owner was very friendly and very much visible, which was great to see. All of the staff were extremely friendly and couldn't be more helpful. The food was superb, couldn't fault it at all. The hotel is in a lovely location, overlooking the sea which was very... More

We recently had a short break in Cornwall staying two nights at the Driftwood. Our room was on the top floor with attic beams and low ceilings on the stairs. The room was comfortable but the bathroom was very small. The food was of a very high standard but the wines and drinks were pricey.

Thank you for taking time to write the review, I'm sorry you found are drinks expensive, we have responded to guests requests that we have more top end wines and spirits on our list and many have commented what great value they represent. I am delighted that you enjoyed the food and look forward to seeing you again More

Little to add to other comments. Food outstanding, service faultless. I accidentally ticked 'Wendy A' review as being useful and can't 'in-tick'. It isn't useful but the response together with that from another owner make great reading.

We were welcomed with a brief tour of the hotel and dining room and shown to a delightful quiet room with views over Gerrans Bay. The bar and lounge are oases of calm and the dining room provide amazing food. How you can combine eight or ten different flavours to each dish and make such a rounded and different dish,... More

We arrived at the Driftwood on a gloomy wet evening but as soon as we stepped through the front door we knew all would be well. The hotel is the most relaxing I've ever stayed in and whilst the service lives up to it's high reputation and it's restaurant's Michelin status, it does so without being too stuffy or reserved....
