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

The clifftop location affords a wonderful view over Carlyon Bay, also the rubbish bins unless you specify (and pay for) a sea view. Having said that, the location is very quiet, being on a private road. When we arrived, the person on reception was chatting on the phone, so we had to wait until the conversation finished before we could... More

Stayed here for a week in June. George and his staff were very welcoming and friendly. Enjoyed the food , both in the bar and the restaurant. It was well cooked and very well presented. Our rooms were very comfortable and we could see the sea! A good base to explore the area. George had lots of local information which... More

My husband and I stayed here for 7 days and felt very welcome and comfortable. Our room appeared recently refurbished and had a great view over the bay. The staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The menu was a bit limited, but the food was delicious. George and Jasper were always on hand and were good at creating a... More

Superbly located hotel with a beautiful sea view. The room was of a reasonable size and well presented with the shower room looking like new. There is clearly ongoing investment in the hotel, with modern double glazing and well presented public areas. We found each staff member we met to be friendly and informative regarding local attractions and knowledge (the... More

We first stayed in this hotel 33 years ago and found it a delightful start to our married life. Recently we returned and we were not disappointed. We were greeted by a charming receptionist who took the time to listen to our story and even photocopied the old invoice we had brought with us. We were escorted to the same... More

I arrived at tea time and had to wait for about 10 mins before somebody came to check me in. My 1st encounter with the manager (?) Jasper who was rude and sarcastic in some way every time that I saw him. He started by making derogatory remarks about my booking agent and employer. I was working in St Austell... More
