We have just arrived back from Kings Acre North Cornwall.
The website introduction states that it is a B&B with a little difference, but let me tell you, it is very different and first class.
We booked the indulgence package - to celebrate our anniversary - we were treated extremely well. The package included a bottle of Champaign on arrival, quality chocolates and the bed decorated with petals.
We also had complementary slippers and bathrobes. On arrival we were greeted outside as it was quite dark after a 5 1/2 hour drive.
The check-in process was completed over freshly brewed coffee and scones baked on the premises with jam and cream.Delicious! Note was also made of the type of music we liked.
The themed room was fantastic - the Mackintosh - well thought out and made to make you feel comfortable - a match for any 4* or perhaps even 5* hotel. The bed is sumptuous and just a delight to be in with the tempura mattress.
Breakfast - talk about eating like a king... breakfast was served to music of a genre discussed during the check-in process and the food presentation and quality were surprisingly good and so filling. Caution - if you are going for the Full English Breakfast, make sure your waist band is quite loose.
This B&B also has a fitness room with sauna and hot tub which you can book for about 2 hours a day, for us if was a fantastic way to wind down at the end of the day.
The package also included sandwiches on one of the days… once again they were well presented on a platter with a large salad and 2 rounds of sandwiches made with a mixture of thick sliced bread which looked home made but I’m not sure if they were…. I didn’t ask.
Although the time of year that we visited the area did not produce the best weather, the facilities more than made up for the weather, which was rather wet and windy but was not particularly cold during the day. The B&B come hotel is located in Camelford North Cornwall and is not far from Tintangel - King Arthur country. It also did not take long to get to Rock – the other side of the estuary from Padstow.
All in all, the 3 night package was wonderful, the hospitality and accommodation and food were first rate and worth experiencing more than once.
