Just had 4 nights at this wonderful hotel for our 20th wedding anniversary - didnt want to leave, cant wait to go back, recommending it to all. Only booked 3 days in advance but still managed to get a 'small sea view room' - just right with perfect view across the bay as far as south Devon even. Travel is so easy - train to St Austell then a 12 minute bus trip drops you 20 yards from the front door - so forget the car. Village centre just 10 minutes along the cliff path or 5 min walk downhill - the only snag of course - its a good 10 min steep climb back up which can be hard work after a good meal in one of several village pubs or restaurants.
Made to feel as if at home from moment we arrived - all staff and guests so friendly - it really is just out of an Agatha Christie book set in a cornish country seaside house party ! Make sure you spend sometime in the beautiful lounge. Nothing seems to be any trouble at all. They even allowed us to put our chillers in the freezer and our wine in the fridge for the last night so that it would be cool by the time we got back to the cricket at Taunton the next day.
If you want fish for breakfast tell someone the day before - early b'fast, no problem - special diet, what would you like ? ...... Restaurant food may appear on first sight of the menu to be, shall we say, not cheap by any means - but its worth every penny and cooked to perfection - for example my lamb from the farm next door to Helligan 2 mles away (bus from the front door) was to die for - I can still taste it now over 2 weeks later - the best ever - I want it again, now !!!! Excellent wine list including a superb crisp dry white from a local vineyard a few miles west, near St Ewe chilled to perfection.
As well as Helligan, Eden Project, Charlestown, Fowey all easy on that bus, or even ferry across the bay to Fowey, and from St Austell you can get bus or train to many Cornish attractions or even Plymouth ( international ! ). We also ate and drank in The Ship and The Fountain - both very good although the latters crab cakes could have been spicier - and in a famous cafe/retaurant towards the south end of the quay (name forgotten) which in the evening cooks top quality fish (and not just standard stuff) from named local boats caught that day. Also for a laugh ( and presents) dont miss the newly opened Pirates shop oooo arrrrr !!
