We stayed here for 1 night in June and picked it because it was conveniently located on our way to southern Cornwall. I had read the reviews and decided I would take the chance, after all, how strange could it be. Well, pretty strange is the answer. We booked 2 Classic Kings with 4 Poster Beds. The rooms are large and we did have terrific views of Tintagel Castle but that is where the "pluses" ended. The "king" bed must be related to King Arthur because it was a standard double bed although it was a 4 Poster. The bed linens are fine but don't make up for being crammed into a much smaller bed than expected. The bathrooms can only be described as bizarre as other people have mentioned. And do be careful. . . we kept slipping into the shower every time we were at the sink!
The full English breakfast was included in our room rate and when we arrived in the breakfast room the buffet had been ravaged by a departing tour group. When we asked, the buffet was eventually replenished but the food was still pretty poor quality and lukewarm.
The public areas are in need of refurbishing with worn carpets and upholstery which is a little hard to take when you can look into the "private" sitting room adjacent to the public lounge area and see a truly lavishly decorated and substantial living room.
The dogs at the front desk were fun and the staff is trying to make the best with what they have.
My recommendation is to organize your trip so you visit Tintangel Castle but stay elsewhere.
