There were 6 of us for a friends birthday lunch, in a very busy restaurant. My friend chose it as we had been here before. Food was superb, beautifully presented and service was impeccable. It was a rainy day but views down the valley were beautiful. Had coffee upstairs in the library this time. Would love to stay here for... More

Fantastic room with a great bed with views over the Tamar Valley and many of the Duke of Bedford's old mines. The place was built for one of his mine 'captains'. Friendly staff and very good food. The founder Sonia Stevenson was the first British woman to be awarded a Michelin star and they keep the standards high.

We stayed in Room 16 - located in the Coach House and classed as a deluxe. The room was inviting with lovely views and comfortable furnishings. Tea and coffee making facilities very nice and just the ticket to prepare us for a long walk in Cornwall after our night's stay. The bathroom was just fabulous, gorgeous double-ended bath, spacious shower,... More

Everything about the hotel was superb, the location is beautiful, the staff are pleasant, helpful, obliging and very efficient. The room we had was large, attractive and comfortable (especially the bed) and the en suite bathroom was equally high standard. The restaurant was excellent with splendid views over the Tamar Valley, lovely staff and delicious food. We were there for... More

Fabulous stay. Booked on a winter break deal. From our arrival to our departure, the whole team made us feel very special. We stayed in the main house which had loads of character, clean and everything provided. The evening meal and breakfast were outstanding, as was the service throughout. Highly recommend, made our 25th Anniversary all the more special.

We have just spent Christmas at the Horn of Plenty, and enjoyed every minute of it. We'd never been there before, so it was a bit of a gamble, but it paid off extremely well. The hotel is lovely: stylish, comfortable and spacious. Our room was fabulous, with comfortable seating as well as a huge bed. The views were beautiful,... More

The hotel is set in beautiful surrounds with spectacular views. However, only four of the sixteen rooms are in the main house so if the weather is wet be prepared to run for it when going to the restaurant. There are four classifications of room and during bad weather the smallest rooms are too small. However, if you are prepared... More

It was a lovely planned birthday treat for Hubbie. Staff were attentive and food simply wonderful. The views were pleasant even though weather was rainy and cloudy . The room was comfy and had all you would need and my husband being a coeliac was no issue and menu could be adapted. The only down side was house keeping and... More
