Read the reviews on Trip Advisor after booking, I was fearful of what to expect at Tregenna after so many negative comments! I stayed at Vow Cottage for a week over Easter with my partner & 14 and 10 year old boys.
We were extremely pleased with the location of the Hotel which overlooks St Ives; the views were awesome. The Hotel is 8 minutes walk from the Seafront in St. Ives.
The vast Grounds and gardens of the Hotel are very well maintained, really pretty with plenty of areas to sit and walks to explore. We played on the 18 Hole par 3 golf course and all thought it was very well maintained and fantastic to play.
The facilities were beyond our expectations. The indoor pool was warm, the sauna and steam room were fine. The Jacuzzi was ok, but could have been a few degrees warmer. My boys made full use of the Tennis, table-tennis and badminton facilities. One negative was that only one of the 3 Tennis courts was in operation, as the other 2 need maintenance. We used the gym each day, and with over 25 treadmill/other machines it was more than adequate.
The Hotel Reception, restaurant, bar, and other public areas were 4* as are many other areas of the Hotel. I would be guessing, but I assume the whole hotel isn't 4* because of the decor/facilities in the Hotel Rooms and some of the decoration in the gym/pool/changing rooms.
The Reception and Gym staff were all helpful and dealt with all of our requests. We ate outside on the superb new decking area overlooking St. Ives Bay and all enjoyed our food.
We stayed in Vow Cottage which is approx a 3 minute walk from the Hotel. Its a detached 3 bedroom cottage overlooking the Sea. It was very tranquill; we were able to hear the waves on Porthminster Beach. Well furnished, it had everything we needed, along with lots of 'character.'
We thought the Hotel was great value for money and don't agree with all the negative comments on this site. We will be returning to Tregenna, not to buy one of the Time-Shares in the Lodges (as fantastic as they look) but to enjoy a geat Hotel within walking distance of one of the best holiday destinations in the UK.
