My husband is in the airline industry and we travel a great deal and stay in many hotels around the world, so perhaps I have overly high standards and expectations.
We stayed one night last week at the Trebarwith, we used other trip advisor reviews to choose this hotel. Unfortunately the reviews from others was not our experience.
This hotel has huge potential, but it has not been capitalised on and instead is a large, old run down establishment. - the magnificent views and fabulous location on the beach is it's savings grace.
We were fortunate to secure one of the best rooms in the hotel, it was at the front, with a bay window looking over the sea with a small double four poster bed. We paid the same rate 118 pounds the previous night at Watergate Bay Hotel, which was truly divine; and in my opinion, much better value for money.
The room was old and in fitting with the hotel it was run down, the bed was hard, small and uncomfortable with biscuit thin pillows, on the up side, the bathroom was very clean it had a bath and a great shower and the views were magnificent and you really can see the sea from your bed, which is lovely at sunrise.
When we arrived I wanted to have a swim at the beach, when I asked for a towel I was refused, apparently towels are only for the pool, (which I never bothered to look at).So if you stay here, either take your room towel or bring one with you
The beach itself is gorgeous and I had a great swim in it, the sand is pristine and the steps from the hotel lead straight to it.
While we were there 90 % of the guests were over 60. The handful that weren't were a fabulous group of ladies I met who will be the most memorable part of the hotel for me.
Breakfast was included in our rate; however, it was poor quality produce, we couldn't eat it and checked out.
All in all, the hotel was fine, it just wasn't great.
The bay window looking over the ocean has a children's room connected to it with bunk beds, make...

Sorry we didn't quite meet your expectations in terms of being 'dated peoplewise and buildingwise.
As far as old people are concerned we encourage all ages to stay with us and generally this is what happens, we do get more youngsters during school hoilidays and more senior age people during September when schools have gone back. We get young people coming back so many times they are now old!! We have had the hotel for 48 years and seen some people every year!
I know we are dated, its no secret the place is steeped in history and are working on avoiding the 'rundown' look whilst trying to stay solvent and we are making good progress.
You can hire towels for the beach and pool so I am sorry if this was not clear.
We have 2 BA pilots who regularly stay here and love the place so if you are in the Airline Industry please do not feel the need to divert to another destination.
