The manager/owner of this hotel really needs to go on a customer service course. Very rude, and not at all helpful. Pretty much ruined our weekend away. A real shame, as the members of staff are really nice, and more than helpful. The hotel is very dated, and could really do with a complete makeover. Such a lovely position, such... More

Very friendly staff, easy to book... Found hotel online but called to make booking, the manager was very accommodating and charming, all front of house and restaurant staff were also helpful and approachable. We selected meals from the bistro menu 2 nights out of 3 and the food was excellent. Breakfast also delicious and flexible in choice. Our room was... More

We stayed here a few years ago and thought we would stay again this year. I read the reviews with interest and although there were negative comments the majority were good so we booked. The location is as amazing as I remembered and we were glad we paid extra for a sea view. The room was large and the bed... More

The location of this hotel is certainly terrific. Unfortunately I travelled by myself, hence, stayed in a single room on the top floor. Insanely hot in there, but the set up was allright, nothing "WOW" about it. Shame primarily for the set up of the reception: I was "welcomed" by someone who gave me my key, told me that my... More

There are a lot of positives about this hotel, great location and spectacular views! The lady on reception is fantastic and although always busy was incredibly helpful and cheerful throughout our stay! The bar and reception area are very good and decorated to a high standard. Breakfast was very good for the cooked option but quite limited in terms of... More

The hotel has fantastic views across the bay and the hosts were accommodating allowing me to check in early so I could get ready for my friend's wedding. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely; I had tasty scrambled egg with a generous helping of smoked salmon.

Even though we didn't get to spend the night, we arrived after 1.5 hours of searching for somewhere to sleep and the concierge informed us that there was "no room at the inn". Now 10.30 we were hungry and tired and somewhat regretting our impromptu journey from London to Cornwall. However, he proceed to phone the other local hotels to... More

Almost everything about this hotel was very good. Fantastic views, comfortable rooms, very good breakfast, and most of the staff were very warm and friendly. The hotel is a little walk from the coast but that should not put anyone off.

Nice roomy hotel with fantastic sea views and very close to the coastal footpath. Reception was very friendly and efficient, rooms comfortable although would recommend to avoid the annex if it is cold as it was cooler than than the main hotel. Breakfast repetitive but adequate and the choice of meals for the evening meal was really good. Preparation and... More
