“A Nice Venue in Cornwall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

My wife and I together with our 4-year old son stayed at the St. Moritz in a suite for four nights over the Easter holidays - a time when the sun was out most days, but the temperature still quite chilly.

This is a well maintained modern hotel within easy walking distance of the beach and coastal trail. It is also an easy walk to Polzeath Beach, the main surfing beach for the region. We arrived by train from London (4 1/2 hours from Paddington Station) and were met at Bodmin Parkway station by a hotel-arranged taxi for the 30 minute ride (£35) to the hotel. While it is not necessary to have a car while staying at the hotel (the hotel does provide free car service to restaurants and other venues in the immediate area), it would no doubt be desirable should you wish to venture much further afield.

Prior to our arrival, I had been contacted via e-mail by Britt Loe, the Guest Host for the hotel. She arranged our taxi service, made dinner reservations, scheduled a babysitter so my wife and I could have an evening out alone, and suggested a whole range of venues and activities we could explore during our stay. Britt was especially welcoming and very helpful - a real plus for the hotel. That said, all the staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. The fact that the owner-manager is always on site and ready to address any issues that may come up is also a plus for the hotel.

Understand that the hotel is not right on the beach or even right above the beach. It is about a 10 minute walk down the hill to the Coastal Path and on to the nearest beach. The ocean can be seen from the higher floors of the hotel, but not from the ground floor suites or the restaurant. This is not a problem as walking to the beach or down the hill to see the ocean is a matter of only a few minutes. We did this many times during out stay and our 4-year old led the way in both directions!

Our room (ground floor double suite with garden view) was a very well appointed suite with separate bedroom and a living room-dining room combination and a large, fully equipped kitchen. The room was immaculate and the furniture very comfortable, including the king size bed. The kitchen came equipped with stove, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer and washer/dryer together with all manner of kitchen utensils, pots, pans and dishes, toaster, microwave, electric hot water heater, coffee press and teapot. One could rely entirely on self-catering if desired as the kitchen is so well equipped. There is a large room safe in the bedroom closet as well as plenty of hanging closet space and drawers. We did think the John Lewis dresser was a bit cheap given the rest of the furnishings as the drawers did not have guides making sliding them in and out something of an inconvenience. The bathroom was fine, though there is perhaps insufficient space around the sink and the lighting could have been brighter. The Cowshed products were a nice touch and the big towels and bathrobes a definite plus. The extra bed for our son fit easily in the living room (at an extra charge of £25/night).

The indoor pool is quite nice and my son liked it immensely. The outdoor pool is big and looks very pleasant but due to the cold weather was not open during our stay. My wife availed herself of the Cowshed Spa and found the facial and massage to be up to her standards, so much so that she now intends to utilize the Cowshed Spa in London.

We ate all our breakfasts and one dinner in the hotel dining room as breakfast was included in the room rate. The breakfast buffet and hot dishes available on order were fine, though a variety of omelets and perhaps a bit more healthier fare would improve the offerings. The coffee, however, was consistently dreadful over the whole 4 days, even though brought to the table in an individual press. It got to the point where we would make our own coffee in the room rather than order it during the hotel breakfast.

Our one dinner in the hotel restaurant was good, much better than expected. The food was good -- the butternut squash soup was excellent, the fish was nicely cooked and the selection of local cheeses for dessert was very acceptable. The wine list was fine, offering a number of options, though a few more offerings by the glass would be an improvement. Also, keep in mind that the hotel positions itself as family friendly, so if you are planning on a romantic dinner with your spouse, a later reservation - particularly during school holidays -- is probably warranted in order to mitigate disturbance from nearby tables. There is also a large bar area just outside the restaurant where one can have a before or after dinner drink if desired.

All in all, a well run hotel, very comfortable and well located. We would recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: First floor garden suites are very nice.

Have just spent 3 days at the St Moritz and couldn't recommend it more highly. It's perfect for those with small kids although ours are a bit older and still enjoyed it. The rooms are spacious and contemporary and we had wonderful views over the gardens to the sea. We had an apartment and there was plenty of room for the 4 of us. It was great having our little kitchen (superbly kitted out). Breakfasts were good and the meals in the bar were particularly good value - a very relaxed vibe and friendly service throughout. I would definitely recommend for families but not so sure for those who don't want to have lots of kids running around!

We came across this Hotel on a discount website and stayed just before the Easter Break where we got a great deal of 3 nights for the price of 2! We loved it, the room very really well decorated, clean, modern with one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in (with wonderful cowshed product in the bathroom!) The staff were so friendly and helpful and what a bonus to have the Hotel Landover to take us to a restaurant nearby and pick us up! The cowshed spa was great and I had the luxury pedicure which I can highly recommend. We were a couple away for a quiet break and it was perfect but the Hotel is very geared up for families and children also. We would definitely stay here again (out of season when nice and quiet) and would highly recommend.

We have stayed here twice, once over New Years 2012/2013 and again just last week over Easter. Each time we have taken a groundfloor 1 bed suite for us and our 2 kids (2 and 3). The hotel is superb for Children and highly recommended. We had friends who joined us and they took a 3 bed apartment which at £1500 for the week looked excellent value. (we paid almost the same for 4 nights). It is therefore not a cheap break, but it is actually good value with it. The pool is clean and although the outdoor one has been closed on both of our visits, I am sure it is lovely in the summer. The hotel is close to Rock and Polzeath and my morning run along the cliffs was really stunning - it was cold but sunny and the place glows in sunshine. My wife has used the spa, and says it is very good, although it does lack a spa wet area, but still all in all a great family break and highly recommended.

The staff were extremely helpful and the room was gorgeous with one of the most comfortable beds I've ever come across! Had really nice extra touches like fresh milk, hair straighteners and board games in the room. The breakfast was also delicious.Would definitely look to stay here again

Stayed at this hotel in November 2012 for one night, very nice and modern hotel, grounds great, beach close by walking distance, plenty parking.
Rooms clean, modern, bed very comfortable, staff were very friendly, helpful. I paid for the cosy room stay which was very good value for money, I would stay at this hotel again and would recommend this to family and friend.

The food in the restaurant, was excellent, service very quick, plenty of choice for us. We used the swimming pool, which was quiet whilst we were there, I would us the Spa next time round.

Nothing bad to say about the stay, really enjoyed it..

Room Tip: Choose a room that is not on the ground floor, near the entrance doors.

Room Tip: not many have sea views if you want that
