“Avoid!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2007

Have just returned from a 3 night stay at one of the 'Villas' at Lanteglos. Can honestly say this is the worst place I have ever stayed.

When we first drove up to the place we knew it wasn't going to be good when we saw the state of the laundrette there! Not a very good first impression and then as we walked up past the games room it got worse! It is in a bad state of repair with cracks in the walls and a sinking roof covered in moss! The 'villas' look like prefabs! Really they should probably be demolished and built again as they are seriously outdated.

The whole place smelt of damp and each morning I awoke to windows full of condensation and water dripping down the walls and onto the carpet! I stayed here with my husband and brother - in my brother's room there was a dehumidifier!

The place was absolutely tiny - to describe it as a 'villa' is insulting. At best it could be described as a bedsit. The bowls and cups were minute and were like something from the 1960s - you could barely fit anything in them!

We were supplied with no cleaning materials at all not even washing up liquid. I have stayed in self catering places before and cleaning products have always been provided. We were given a hand out information sheet when we arrived which asked us to dispose of our own rubbish but we couldn't as we weren't supplied with replacement bin liners!

We absolutely hated this place and made sure we stayed out of it as much as possible because it wasn't comfortable at all. We didn't relish going back there each night. The beds were hard and uncomfortable - again no doubt they are years old.

I would advise anybody considering staying here to seriously think again. Next year when we go down to Cornwall we shall be staying at Hengar Manor - what a difference this place is - the total opposite of Lanteglos!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2007

Stayed in a cottage for two nights. Considering other reviews I've read, I was surprised how musty and outdated the furnishings were. The mold/mildew smell was overpowering even with the windows opened. I realise the property is old but for £360 for two nights I would have expected the room to be much nicer (and cleaner.) I would also avoid the restaurant in the hotel and visit The Riverside restaurant in Camelford. One good point: the bathroom was extremely nice and modern.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2006

Stayed in a 2 bedroom self catering "villa" in the well-kept grounds of this lovely hotel. Accomodation was a bit run down but was clean & had all the basic needs. Good value for peak season, especially as the place was quite full, but still seemed very peaceful and relaxing. We often had sole use of the lovely heated outdoor pool, even tho the sun was shining all week! Didn't try the restaurants. Staff were friendly & helpful. Close to some great surfing beaches.
