The renovation is superb and the location stunning. It is let down by some teething problems with the service which at the prices that are charged should not happen. Everyone was extremely polite and tried to provide our simple order for cream tea which did eventually appear, albeit not all at the same time and after some chasing.
Whilst we only went there to eat so could not comment on the rooms, all four of us noticed that the loos were not particularly clean and attention to detail was missing eg no place to put dirty hand towels.
We walked away with the thought that we would return to give it another try, but not for a while when they have hopefully sorted out the teething problems and fully trained the staff.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Idle Rocks has the most enviable location in St Mawes, overlooking the harbour with views across the River Fal to Falmouth. Our 19 bedrooms, most with stunning vistas over the bay, have been thoughtfully designed, each having their own unique identity with fabulous fabrics and decor that leave you in no doubt that you are by the sea. After a long day lazing on the beach, our south facing terrace is the perfect place to relax, have a long drink, and watch the world go by. You may even see your dinner being landed on the harbourside.The Idle Rock's restaurant, run by our head chef, Guy Owen, is a celebration of Cornwall; showcasing a range of fabulous produce that has been sourced locally using only seasonal fresh ingredients. In many cases it will have been swimming right on our doorstep only a few hours earlier and while the food is of the very highest standard our setting is very relaxed. ... more less
