Visited this hotel in the height of summer for a short family break. Couldn't ask for a better location with parking on site which is definitely needed in Padstow , although the car park is always full as spaces are limited. The staff are great, very helpful, friendly and polite. The hotel is good but a little dated in places and the bedrooms although large could do with modernising . We had a ground floor room that opened out onto the lawn with great views over the estuary . Hotel is situated right next door to rick steins seafood Resturant . Breakfast was good with lots of choice although I think it would be better if buffet style. Literately a two minute walk into the harbour with a great choice of shops and restaurants . The big negative for me was that there was no safe in the room although you could leave with reception , wasn't impressed with this and wifi was practically non existent , never once got it in our room and generally had to go and sit in the reception area if you wanted a connection, not really acceptable in a four star hotel. But yes would go again as overall good.
