“Wonderful home”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

We stayed 1 night at Le Tresanton and were so lucky to be upgraded to room 32 a fabulous new 2 bedroom suite in their most recent addition to the hotel. It was fantastic, so beautifully designed and peaceful with lovely views over the harbour. We dined in the restaurant which was also very good and were made to feel very welcome by all the wonderful staff. I have always wanted to stay here and would go back in a flash!!

Decided we wanted a relaxed leisurely lunch and where better to go? The sun came out and we sat on the terrace sipping our drinks. We said we didn't want to rush and the staff got it just right. I opted for the special of the day, pork belly followed by creme brule and raspberries. My partner went for a croque monsieur with a fried egg. The food was excellent. The detail is what made it; the fried egg was perfect and the pork just melted.
The wines we drank were off a very professional list and well worth tasting. Service was not over formal and just what was wanted.
To sum up this was a lunch we will remember for a long time for all the right reasons.

Five days of total relaxation. One of my favorite short holidays I look forward to each year is our stay at The Tresanton. Smiling welcoming faces on arrival with check in made seamless and our favourite room beautifully set up. It says a lot for the management that the same staff remain in situ long term, continually motivated and professional. The views are stunning. After a day walking the dramatic outrageously beautiful Cornish coastline to return to the Tresanton with a Scotch to hand, in front of a log fire or taking in the last of the sun relaxing on the beautifully positioned terrace watching the sailing boats tack up the estuary before settling in for a delicious dinner created from local produce. What a perfect day. We look forward to returning soon. As per the well named local beer, this hotel is the 'Proper Job' !

This was a treat for my birthday & we spent 4 days here in August. It was utter heaven. Arrived in time for the last buffet lunch of the summer which was spectacular, as were the great breakfasts & dinners, all taken on the terrace overlooking the sea. We haven't had such delicious food in years & I definitely put on extra kilos as everything on the menu was irresistible. To the people who complained about no tea in the room, when we asked the desk, they immediately sent up a tray with an electric kettle, vast supply of teas, coffees & hot chocolate. One of my favorite memories is having wake up tea with my daughter in my room, looking out to the incomparable view. Our rooms were super comfortable, the staff were really kind & friendly & I had a wonderful massage. This is a hotel I can highly recommend & we would love to return.

We spent a great weekend here.It was one of the nicest locations I have been to in the UK. Absolutely idylic! The staff were very attentive and the breakfasts were fantastic. My only criticism would be there were no tea/coffee facilities in the room or a fridge/mini bar.We travelled a longway and needed a cuppa or chilled drink on arrival, but only room service is available.A little bit over-priced for what was on offer, I'm afraid.

Room Tip: Rooms downstairs may be quieter. Our room at the top was noisy at night with the boiler.

We only visited 'The Nook', the small tea room attached to the main hotel. The seating area was lovely with an amazing view over St Mawes and the sea. However, the drinks were far too expensive. Three teas came to £7.50 and were served in plastic cups, which would not normally bother me but at £2.50 a cup I think this is very cheeky. A cup of apple juice was £3.50 (!!), tasted like it was from a carton and was mostly ice. We were not impressed and will not be returning, which is a shame as the location really was great.
