I would not recommend the room we had for a long stay as it was rather small, but for just one night it was absolutely fine. Up in the attic space it commanded a panoramic sea view which is why this is probably the best positioned hotel in Cornwall. Having said the room was small, I must say that it... More

My husband and I stayed at the Driftwood for 2 nights as an anniversary treat. It was absolutely fantastic. A piece of heaven for the weekend. Our room was beautiful, food out of this world and everyone friendly and helpful. Even managed coffee overlooking the lovely garden during a break in the weather! Perfect. Can't wait to come back.

We have eaten at the Driftwood before and I can say that this experience was as good as ever. The food was outstanding and the service first class. There was a minor hiccup with one of our main courses, which was acknowledged, rectified, and suitable recompense made without the need to mention it. A mark of a truly first class... More

Was taken here as a surprise anniversary treat by friends and it was indeed a lovely treat. Driftwood is in a reasonably remote location, there are no other pubs/restaurants within walking distance, but there is everything here you need for a lovely weekend. The rooms are timber built units outside the main restaurant building. Each was large with comfortable king... More

We did not stay at the Driftwood. We celebrated my partners birthday with a dinner here, The dining room has wonderful views. The food was as ever exceptional. The chef manages to impart huge flavours into tiny garnishes which complement the food wonderfully. The Mackerel starter and Lamb Main were of particular mention, although every morsel of every dish was... More

If you want exceptional food, excellent service, deliciously comfortable bed with top quality sheets and pillows, peace and quiet and a good base from which to explore one of the loveliest parts of Cornwall, this is the place to stay. It's interior is tastefully decorated with hints of Africa everywhere. The restaurant at the Driftwood has rightly earned a Michelin... More

We booked this last minute as a week away and luckily for us they had a room with a view over the sea. It is a fantastic location on the clifftop with rolling lawns and secret terraces when you can sit and relax. The winding path takes you down to the 'private' beach with lovely soft sand. The welcome and... More

Wonderful situation on the cliffop. A superb hotel which offers a relaxed, elegant environment to stay. The blue and cream decor throughout is relaxing.Room 2 is a lovely light room with three windows giving panoramic views of the coast and beach. Staff are all friendly and efficient. The resident chef produces a high quality three course menu using local fare,... More

a rare night away for my husband and I. We wanted an escape for the day and night and the Driftwood delivered. I couldn't fault it. A sense of home but with decor to admire. Art to peruse and a view to sink into. Immaculate and intimate, with food to match such a description; very fine indeed.

This was our second visit to the Driftwood Hotel...our first was during September 2014 for an evening, tasting menu, meal which was sublime on every level. Based on that visit my wife and I decided to make the Driftwood our destination for a weeks stay to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary in 2015. We didn't advise the hotel of this... More
