Great location and I had booked a "superior room with sea views" - which is what I got. Good large room and refurbished bathroom. Comfortable bed - so far so good. Went downhill from there as I had arrived on 1 April and when I asked why my radiators weren't working I was told "there is no central heating after 1st April" ! The night time temps were 4 degrees C and it was only 6 degrees outside at 7pm according to my car thermometer. This is Cornwall - not the Caribbean! I said it wasn't good enough for a room costing over £100/night b&b and eventually the lone receptionist on Sunday evening (this is a big hotel) said she'd bring me up a portable elec heater. Which I then kept and used continuously when I was in the room - which faced north/west toward the sea so sunshine didn't get to the room at all in April. The breakfasts are OK, but the cooked options are kept warm in hot trays - more like a 2-3 star hotel which this isn't. Good marks for fresh fruit/dried fruits and fresh orange juice though - despite the ubiquitous tinned grapefruit segments. Staff seemed minimal and only one eating option was open at this time. If you're going after 1 April and before - what? Xmas? (joke) then take a portable heater with you as I can't believe they have dozens to hand.......
