Our first day in Cornwall and we found this little treasure in St Austell. Car park is £2 for all day. There is a Cafe with tables and benches. Kids loved the beach. Sandy beach with clear view of the sea. A must place to visit for all of the family. There are toilets also.

The bed and linens are extremely comfortable and they even have a pillow menu! The food is perfect, the views and grounds exquisite and the... More

We booked this hotel only a few weeks before we visited it and had a very relaxing holiday with our two children (10 & 4 years). Our interconnecting rooms were quiet and clean and although not sea facing were perfectly adequate for our needs. Bedtime chocs at turndown was always appreciated! The setting of the hotel is beautiful and the... More

I stayed at the hotel for three nights over a weekend, as part of a short trip to Cornwall. The location is good - the hotel was easy to find and a short walk to the coast path or to the beach. St Austell is a little further away but a relatively easy walk or short drive. It is also... More

Lots of car parking. Would love to go back if the prices are not to over the top. Best to phone the hotel direct to... More

Simply the most wonderful experience. The staff and the place made my birthday a truly memorable one. A fantastic blend of art deco splendor mixed with modern comforts. Sheer luxury and if I ever get rich I know just where I want to go on a regular basis! The food was incredible and the spa and massage was too....cannot fault... More
