This hotel never fails to please- as good for a solo business trip as for a social visit with friends- fabulous service as ever and the perfect location for visiting this part of Cornwall. The smaller restaurant was closed but dinner in the bar after a swim and a laze in the hot tub was just right

We found we had been upgraded to a superior room and were greeted with champagne, chocolates, fruit and a wonderful sea view. The staff were pleasant and helpful, and the food excellent. We enjoyed the indoor po ol and the spacious lounge. We will certainly use the Brend Hotel Group again. Frances

We have stayed at The Carlyon Bay three times now and cannot fault it. Our latest visit was shortly after the Restaurant's refurbishment and we must say the Brends really have maintained their high standards here! As always the food and service were of 5* standard and if you visit the green room before dinner you'll find the canapés served... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time and are already thinking of returning soon. With a golf course included in the deal we were really happy that we chose Carlyon. The views from the course were outstanding

My wife and I run our own business and we wanted some time out to review and clarify our business strategy. We organised an "away day" sandwiched with a 2 night stay. Absolutely brilliant. Relaxing and reinvigorating. Hotel facilities and food were excellent, superbly complemented by the brilliant staff, who couldn't be more helpful and completely genuine in their interest... More
