We have just got back from 2 nights at this hotel and I have to agree with many of the previous comments. When we arrived our greeting was efficient and impersonal but overpowered by the stench of the dog's (untouched) fish dinner in the reception room.
Our booking was incorrect and even though I had made 3 telephone calls with the hotel about the needs of our booking these had not been noted, The details that I had been given and had thought I had booked, were not possible to have. We were able to reselect rooms but not one the ground floor as requested (I had recently had a fall and finding stairs difficult).
Our room was clean but very dated and did not have a sea view. The bed was clean and comfortable with nice linen and towels were fluffy and white.
Our daughter had a very average room with a nice view over the garden to the sea but the 'ensuite' was half of the wardrobe. To be honest I thought this was one of the most oppressive and unpleasant 'ensuite' that I have ever seen.
The owners could hardly mange a smile if we encountered them in the hotel although the staff at breakfast were very efficient and friendly, The breakfast itself was plentiful and well cooked, although, as previously said kept warm on a hotplate and so was tepid if not newly added.
An expensive hotel for what it really offers and not one I would recommend. We stayed the previous night at a newly refurbished hotel in nearby Bude for the same price. There we had a double bedroom with new lught coloured fittings, a modern bathroom and also a lounge with kitchenette. No comparison.
Advice to the Bossiney ..... you can only make one first impression ..... the dogs dinner turned our stomach.
