“disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Single occupancy of a double room. Amazing views, great tea tray and very friendly staff. But room was shabby, and dirty. The 'ensuite' was a shower in the corner of the room with a curtain, which must have been there for 40 years. It was very cold (in July) and the tiny electric heater in the room did not do the job of warming the room or drying my soaked-through clothes from walking in the rain. The whole place is in dire need of re-painting and updating. There was a quiz that night which was very noisy (why? there were only about 5 people there yet they were using the amplifier!!)This is such a superb location, such a disappointment to find that there are still places like this in the 21st Century.

We have visited the bar at the Well Parc on several occasions. They have a fantastic view. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxing. They have very good live bands playing excellent music suited to all tastes. We did not have a meal but the food that was being served looked very appetising. They do a lot of work for charity which is good to see in this day and age. The décor is basic, but it is very clean and gives it a relaxing atmosphere. It makes a change from all this modern bars which are more suited to big towns than Cornish villages/seaside towns. We are looking forward to our next visit at the end of the month. We travel from Boscastle regularly for a good evenings entertainment. Keep up the good work

This is not an hotel. It is not a pub. Nor is it a restaurant. It is hell. We have visited Trevone for years and always thought that the biggest potential therein is the pub. But the owners focus on, well, folk who want awful food, poor drinks and dreadful service, How does it survive? Probably because the publican owns the freehold and therefore that subsidises the dreadful fare. Tonight we experienced banging rap. It is a beautiful evening but the landlord favours plebby awfulness. He has the typical Cornish business brain of "i'm right and rubbish is acceptable" rather than a more sophisticated "what does the customer want". Shall be picking things up with Trading Standards - this place should be closed

I unfortunately decided to have a meal here recently. To say Well Parc is dated is an understatement. That in itself would not appear be a massive problem, however the place is genuinely so run down that it has to be seen to be believed. Yes the patrons appear to do a lot for charity, but perhaps a little more effort towards their paying customers would be more honest and appropriate.....they are charging 'proper' prices but providing a substandard product. Check out the light by the main entrance sign and the state of the refuse strewn bins to the right of the bar entrance if you doubt my words. I am amazed the electrics i saw passed any official inspection?Lastly, one of my guests had lamb and if it was barely warm. Dismal.....less charity and more (or some) business focus to be fair to your clients.

Firstly, I have to say that I haven't actually stayed here but have visited the bar for drinks whilst on holiday nearby. The real give away to this place is the menu.... absolute classic 1970's fayre. It is hilarious, but maybe not if you have to order from it. The owners haven't changed the place since they moved here in the very early 80's & I don't think the place had changed for some time before that! If you liked the 70's and want to go back in time great, if you are a modern yuppie type avoid like the plague.

It is a shabby place.could be so much better.it needs updating.i stayed in sept. 2011.to the lady who says everyone should give them a break because they do a lot for charity ill say this.what difference does that make? Who thinks about that when you're stood for nearly 20 minutes waiting for a drink? The service was poor and the food average.but the views were great and they have got a gorgeous black Labrador.so not all bad.

Stayed for a fortnight this summer. Weather could have been better but the Well Parc was excellent, as usual. It's clean, comfy, reasonably priced and very welcoming. The views are astounding and Trevone and rest of the North Cornwall coast is right there on your doorstep. Simply stunning. See you next year!
