Having booked our first child free holiday since the children had fledged we decided to have a relaxed journey home to the midlands. This hotel was all we expected it to be and more. It's lovely to have individualized rooms in a characterful property rather than a standard souless room in a modern chain hotel.
We had a room on the top floor with a view out across the bay. Though it was the hottest part of this summer, we kept cool with several skylights and a very efficient fan. There was a wardrobe in the eaves and adequate drawers and shelving for storage.
The staff were very helpful and directed us to potential eateries and we had a call the evening we were to arrive to ensure there was someone at hand at reception.
Breakfast , again, is a treat. The dining room is spacious and comfortable with lots of reading material to browse. Eggs Benedict were spot on and kept me going until my cream tea in the afternoon on St Michael's Mount.
Would definately return or visit their sister hotel in Brighton.
