“Nice Location, Hotel not so great”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2007

Bowood Park Hotel and Golf Course is located in a lovely part of North Cornwall, close to many popular attractions such as the Eden project and the port villages of Port Isaac and Padstow. We only stayed here for one night and were fairly glad for that. Upon arrival, reception was not staffed. Dinner was a little too "artistic". More attention should have been devoted to the taste and texture as opposed to the presentation. The room had the worst mattress of any bed I have ever occupied. From another reviewers comment, this bed certainly had springs.. Many of them were digging in me all night. The walls are paper thin, so from what I heard, many of the beds seem to have similar "spring" issues.

In my opinion, its more of an upmarket B&B than a hotel.

Wouldn't stay here again..
