Quiet location high above the sea with amazing views. The outstanding feature of this hotel is the food which was superb at both dinner and breakfast. Service was excellent; friendly, helpful staff. Early morning tea brought to the rooms. Comfortable lounge with log fire. Cornish sparkling wine available by the glass (better than many champagnes). Wine list well thought out... More

We fell upon the driftwood on the off chance we made a booking for that evening and asked if they could get us a lobster which you have to order 24hrs in advance, the chef Chris Eden called us later and said he had sent the local fisherman out so hopefully they would be able to get one for me,...

Brief one night stay. Food was fantastic. My wife chose the best combination from menu - potato risotto with truffle and then venison. Superbly cooked. Excellent night's rest. Back for dinner in a few weeks time and looking forward.

We spent a week at the Driftwood Hotel. They gave us an ocean front king room on the third floor, with a balcony. Words cannot describe how great this hotel and location are! Nice clean quiet rooms with awesome views. Surrounded by many blocks of fabulous restaurants, pubs and bars, as well as shopping and sights! Our room looked right... More

It's difficult to add to the many positive reviews - we spent three days here to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary, and loved it. Relaxed atmosphere, beautifully furnished, very pleasant staff, comfortable throughout, and, of course,truly excellent food, served in an unfussy, generous way. We went out to a pub for some simple food on the middle of our three... More

Lovely location, spacious and stylish room, wonderful food and great service. What more can you ask for? I have rated everything 'excellent' except 'sleep quality'. The bed was too soft for us, but others may disagree. We loved our stay at Driftwood and will be back.

We recently spent a few days at this hotel. It is very evident from the reviews that it's a lovely place with wonderful views and attentive and friendly staff. This too was our experience. Many reviewers have commented on the quality of the food. This is where we have to depart from the vast majority. It was obvious that the... More

A return visit to Portscatho, near St Mawes, for a long week-end break. The hotel is - as ever - bright, welcoming and the bedrooms immaculate, with REN products in the lovely bathrooms. Paul and Fiona run the hotel as an extension of their home, with personal attention to detail. The lounge is comfy with great views - there is... More

What a wonderful hotel Driftwood is. Set in a stunning location with beautiful, uninterrupted views of the sea. Stunning gardens and areas to sit out and relax in. Everywhere was beautifully tended. The food and wine was some of the best we have ever enjoyed. The chef thoroughly deserves his Michelin star. Our room was very spacious by any standard... More
