I stayed at Tresanton for one night as part of a touring holiday. The valet parking was seemless, and the staff in general were efficient and polite - and at no point did you get the impression it was in order to gain larger tips, as can be the feeling elsewhere. The decor of the hotel is very much casual, rather than glamourous luxury. The terrace has great views, and the ideal spot to enjoy a G&T.
We had a very nice lunch on the terrace, but were distinctly under-whelmed with the evening meal. The tables in the restaraunt seemed very close together, and not at all conducive to a private conversation - my husband and I felt like we were on one large table eavesdropping on ten strangers! The menu seemed strangely constructed, and the food rather bland and tasteless in comparison to other restaraunts with a similar price point. Fine dining is one of our hobbies and we felt that this meal should have been much better for a hotel of this quality.
I did have a massage as recommended, and although the massause was obviously highly qualified and knowledgable, I felt as though I had been beaten up at the end of it, and had some spectacular bruises the next day! I guess the moral of the story is that you need to make it clear if you want a relaxing, rather then "therapeutic" massage. However, I'm sure it did my muscles/joints good!
Overall, I would recommend Tresanton for its ambience and service. I completely understand why the hotel doesn't supply tacky add-ons such as tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms (why spoil a lovely room with a kettle and tea bags). Anyhow, I'm sure that the staff would arrange for tea/coffee to be sent up if requested. I'm sure there were parts of the hotel we didn't discover (were there gardens???), but very much enjoyed our relaxing night there.
