Where do you start?! Fabulous location, staff were incredible, relaxed atmosphere, gorgeous rooms and the most wonderful food. Really can't say enough good things about Driftwood - if you get the chance then it's definitely worth a visit.

We stopped here for three nights and ate in for two. The room was comfortable, nice bed and shower, no coffee/tea making facilities but the staff were always on hand to bring them to the room at no charge and you could order your morning tea with a knock on the door as you holiday alarm clock. The location is... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights recently and were very impressed by the location (made even better by the beautiful weather). Driftwood has beautiful gardens which go down to the cliff's edge then steps leading down to a private beach with wooden seats to relax in and admire the view. The rooms are lovely and beds very comfortable.... More

Another wonderful stay at Driftwood. Paul and Fiona, you really are the best hosts in the country and you know why!! We love the time that we stay at Driftwood that is why we keep coming back. This time was really special because of the extra, unexpected night, which was spent in the Cabin, an experience that I don't think... More

Beautiful sea views from the restaurant. Had the epic 10 course taster menu- which did not disappoint. These guys can cook and more than deserve their status. Good service and left the restaurant having had a memorable experience. Saving up to come back again.

We stayed here for three nights in June and what a wonderful experience it was - a beautiful room with sea views, an excellent lounge and bar for drinks before dinner and wonderful food created by their marvellous chef! The gardens are lovely and there is a great little path down, to what in reality is almost, a private beach.... More

We had two nights here - the hotel is wonderfully relaxing and has a plush family home feel. Every meal we had was delicious and the food was certainly the highlight of the trip. The hotel sits on the coast path with access to the most stunning walks. If you get to the coast path and go left (west) you... More

Sublime hotel, go if you can you won't regret it. Worth every penny and more both for the hotel and the food. The views are exceptional, the bed so comfortable and lovely touches like books, dvd's Roberts radio, just like home. We had to have a country view room as we booked late but in fact they undersell this. It... More

We visited this hotel in November and loved it. Rooms were lovely, with stunning views of the sea. Staff were friendly and helpful and food in the restaurant was delicious. We would definitely return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Imagine your perfect holiday - a stylish, privately run Cornish Beach House Hotel, overlooking the stunning Gerrans Bay, near the pretty village of Portscatho, near St Mawes South Cornwall. Driftwood is like no other boutique hotel in Cornwall. Driftwood has the friendly informal service, a michelin star restaurant, and the efficiency you would expect. Where else can you walk down a wooded path, to your own beach and cove? Where else can you lie back on a steamer chair, with a glass of wine, and enjoy an unbroken sea view. Where else can you eat the best, locally sourced food, perhaps lobster caught that morning, or crab from the bay? Whoever you are or whatever your looking for, whether that be a family holiday, a boutique or romantic hotel in Cornwall, Driftwood is perfect for all your needs. At Driftwood, families can be as well looked after as romantic couples or small groups of grown-ups. ... more   less
