We have been here a number of times before and I have experienced a slow decline in the standards. Firstly the decor was drab and in need of a makeover. Next In the past there has been a full al a carte menu this time not so. The choices were limited. I feel that this particular hotel has decided to... More

Lovely room for two. Shame there were a few things missing that you normally get in other hotels such as a bottle of water so you don't have to drink tap water from the bathroom or a packet of biscuits to go with your cuppa on arrival...but the bed was comfy and the room was clean so that's the main...

Went to Kitley today for lunch - our anniversary so wanted more than a pub meal - and had a wonderful meal. The food was superb - then new chef really knows his stuff (though actually we really liked the food by the lady chef who used to be there a few years ago too), the service was helpful and... More

Kitley have restored my faith in their service by providing an excellent high tea. Originally, we had a very poor experience due to an exceptionally busy mother's day, however they surpassed themselves by putting it right. Polite staff, quality scones and sandwiches, perfectly brewed tea and coffee mixed with polite, prompt and friendly attendants.

We stayed overnight with breakfast included, as we were attending a business seminar/lunch the next day. The standard rooms are all in the attic style top floor. This generally means that at some point in the room and or bathroom there will be a sloping area of ceiling. Decor was tasteful, our room recently decorated, however typical of old buildings...

Visited April. Staff were friendly but Afternoon Tea was a big disappointment. The sandwiches were average, the scones were heavy and the cakes all contained thick buttercream - much too rich. The dining room was ok, but nothing special. Had Afternoon Tea at The Cornwall Hotel near St Austell today which was far superior and worth the journey. Shame, as... More

We stopped here recently and found all the staff very friendly and helpful, it was very relaxing, the grounds were amazing and was lucky enough to see an owl flying one evening. We don't own a car! (Shock horror!!) But the taxi from Plymouth was about £15 each way, Lovely atmosphere and can't wait to come back again!
