Friends booked this for us or else we would have moved on. The Owner seemed to find every request a problem. The rooms were not particularly good and two of us could not be in the bathroom at the same time with any degree of comfort. The breakfasts were meagre and it was a joy to move on to a... More

Dinner was served in the bar area as the restaurant was apparently very busy. Food and drink were very good, both at dinner and breakfast. Tip for all hotels: business travellers do expect breakfast to... More

I have just returned from a 4 night break with my elderly parents. The hotel was fantastic and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Don't listen to the reviews of Room 11 as the issue with the fan was fixed before we arrived. The hotel is oldish and the furnishings and decor enhance the old charm feeling.The beds were... More

Not a bad location, fantastic views but peeling wallpaper and dirty paintwork let it down badly. Staff were great, apart from the creeper, scared my wife, very strange bloke but then again it was Cornwall.
