Stayed here for the first time this week for two nights. I had room 6 which has views over the bay and out to Sea. The room was very spacious light and very clean and the bed very comfortable, the bathroom looked like it had been updated in the last few years and was very nicely done with liquid soap... More

Close to the cove, our room had a lovely sea view, was modern and perfectly clean. There is an elevated, terraced lawn area for catching the last of the day's sunshine with one of their great home brewed ales in hand. Very laid back, dog friendly, happy sort of place. It is old with steep staircase and creaky floors but... More

we stayed here last weekend for a wedding and the whole weekend was lovely start to finish. The room was clean the food was excellent, (we opted for the bar food rather than the fitty pysk restaurant) and the location was stunning. The wedding itself went without a hitch and the staff there all new what needed to happen and... More

We are very saddened to have to write this review. We have stayed here for the last 16 years. Every August. However, we are afraid it's time to find somewhere else to stay. We always stay in the bungalow on the opposite side of the road. Only because it's easier to dry out wetsuits on the decking area. We more... More

Amazing location, the room was excellent, and the staff were really friendly. The restaurant is also worth the visit alone. With their own brewery it had everything we needed for a great stay. Very busy at high season weekend but still very friendly and helpful staff.

Considering the fact that it was peak season, we were lucky to get a room in one of the purpose built bungalow style buildings away from the main hotel. Positioned only 2 minutes from the beach, this is an ideal place if you want to spend your entire time just lazing on the beach. And the beach is stunning! The... More

Stayed here with family for 2 x nights to attend a nearby christening . The rooms are fairly average but clean and tidy with the basics . We had one room ( Double ) actually in the pub and the other two were situated across the road from the pub. The pub itself is a traditional old Cornish Beach side... More

We have just enjoyed a glorious break based at the Driftwood Spars - rather more a hotel than a B&B as the rooms are of generous, tastefully furnished, well equipped and with a very comfortable bed we slept like babies in the fresh sea breeze. The friendly Pub side is charming with great choice of real ale and pub food.... More

Trevaunance Cove is one of our favourite places in Cornwall and we've drank and eaten on several occasions at the Driftwood Spars over a number of years. Each time we said we really must book and stay rather than having to drive away after each visit. Well this year we did! We booked two nights as part of a week's... More

When we arrived, the receptionist seemed a bit distracted which wasn't a good start. We were told our room was on the 2nd floor when the booking confirmation told us that the room was on the 1st floor, so the extra stairs were not welcome. The carpet on the stairs was dirty - even my boyfriend noticed which says something.... More
