4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

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....

Driftwood is such an outstanding hotel that the weather is irrelevant (and, quite honestly, the forecasts sometimes seem to predict worse conditions than prove to be the case - which was our experience during our most recent visit to this gem on the Roseland Peninsula). It's easy to run out of superlatives for Driftwood. The breathtaking sea views, the delightful... More

This review is a little late. We stayed over the Valentine's Weekend which my husband had booked as a surprise for me. I was enthralled. The location is breath taking and we spent a memorable time walking and beachcombing on the private beach. The hotel is quirky. Not lush deep wallowing luxury as in some five star establishments. To us... More

From the moment we drove up until we left the service and food was amazing. When we arrived immediately asked if we would like tea or coffee in our room. When it was time for dinner we enjoyed drinks and detailed explanation with dinner and wine pairings at the lounge before even getting to the table. The restaurant manager Matthew... More

From the moment we arrived to the moment we departed the staff, service, hospitality and comfort could not be bettered. The rooms were clean and spacious, the food out of this world and the bar selection superb.

We spent a wonderfully special Valentine's weekend at Driftwood Hotel and it was so good we didn't want to leave, so we extended our stay.

Have enjoyed this Hotels offering for evening meals on a number of occasions over the past few years. Prices are not cheap in my opinion, but when I want to celebrate a special occasion, this Hotels Restaurant never fails to please.
