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

If you want solitude, views and outstanding food then this is the place for you! Stayed for 2 nights this week, was'nt sure what to expect and arrived bored with Michelin starred fine dining that just looks pretty but fails to deliver on many levels. The dining room is stunning with views to die for and mirrors positioned so that... More

There are very few hotels that my wife and I would say are worth a return visit; this one is "a must". It is an ultimate haven of peace; excellent rooms, most with spectacular sea views, beautiful gardens with carefully placed seats that offer maximum privacy if required, a private beach within a five minute walk and a Michelin star...

This was our second visit to Driftwood, this time to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. We stayed three nights along with my wife's parents, as our guests, and were joined by four other family members for a celebratory evening meal in the hotel's first class restaurant. Driftwood is a gem of a hotel, very relaxed in style but high on... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed for many more. Although the final few miles of approach through narrow Cornish lanes could put off the more cautious drivers with expensive cars, the eventual arrival is well worth it. The hotel is tucked away in a gorgeous part of the county with an almost private beach... More

Wonderful service, of an extraordinary level. Staff went out of their way to be of service. Food was of the highest order and certainly very tasty, breakfasts were particularly good. Scenery and the setting was noteworthy and comparable to Portugal and Spanish venues. Bed and room were wonderfully comfortable and we loved the relaxing sound of the sea. Only down-side... More

We stayed three nights at the Driftwood as part of a tour of Cornwall including golf. It was pretty tricky to find despite the Satnav, but once there we spent 3 days being spoilt. The staff are amazing and nothing is too much trouble. The food is all you would expect from a high-end restaurant and didn't disappoint. The hotel... More

Driftwood is in a lovely location, perched on the edge of the hillside overlooking the sea and it's very own beach. The staff are very attentive and it's clear that they care greatly about their guests comfort during their stay. Unfortunately we were unable to have dinner at the restaurant due to illness but the breakfast in the morning was... 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
