Bedruthan Hotel & Spa
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Mawgan Porth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Myself, husband, 2 year old and 3 month old baby recently spent a week at The Bedruthan Hotel and I have to say it was fantastic! From the minute we arrived we felt relaxed which is not common when you have a toddler and a baby in tow. Our room was great, we had a Villa which had a separate room for the kids. The view from the room was beautiful, I don't think I would ever tire of looking out across the ocean, so stunning. Right outside our room was a patio and then a play area which our son adored. He was so happy running around on the pirate ship and jumping on the trampoline. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much, always getting us a bouncy chair for the baby while we ate. We didn't take advantage of the baby listening as we felt our baby was too little but next time I will definitely take advantage of it. We ordered room service and they even brought us cocktails to our room. The pool & spa was fab too. My only criticism was that the sandwiches at lunch were not great but this was minor. We had a really wonderful holiday and came home feeling refreshed which I never thought I would. We can't wait to come back next year!

This is possibly the best Hotel I have stayed at. The staff are so accommodating nothing genuinely is too much trouble. The view of the bay is absolutely stunning and there is nothing more relaxing than sipping a glass of something watching the waves. They have an excellent balance of family and adult space. Don't forget to try the spa, and book yourself a treatment you wont regret it. This really is ideal for all. I can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Spend a bit more and have a sea room you wont regret it.

lovely hotel from the great welcome from checking in too the goodbyes. But if you are a solo traveller try and book a double room or stay at sister hotel scarlet (same owners slightly below bedruthan)as single rooms are rather small hot and stuffy due to enormous glass windows with rather small window on top for opening (you do have a fan in room as no air conditioning). the room is new has all mod cons and excelent choice of coffee teas, and loved the fridge with fresh cornish milk in!.wild cafe is fanastic great fresh food, wine without sulpher and not over expensive.ian on the bar making incredable cocktails just by interviewing you for your tastes and dislikes.great spa and pool, but book a spa day at the scarlet (especialy the journey and if you can get the therapist sarah even better)you will come out so relaxed and renewed.
this is a family orientated hotel so there seemed to be kids around even out of half term, there are quiet lounges adults only so be aware of this.

Room Tip: avoid single rooms too small hot and stuffy ( though fan supplied) modern but due to very large glas...

Bedruthan staff work really hard to make holidays at their hotel special. They are all genuinely friendly and helpful. The hotel is perfectly situated overlooking a beautiful sandy bay. The food is amazing at Wild cafe with a varied choice of specials (sometimes a little overpriced) and a la carte offer (much better value).
Bedruthan offers luxury and relaxation; it's not cheap but you feel special. They are very well suited to looking after young children (crèche and kids clubs) but perhaps could be cleverer at adapting their offer to teenagers For example they could open up adult only areas (like the bar terrace or hydro spa ) to over 12s if accompanied by parents. Our two teenagers enjoyed surf school and learnt quickly how to get up on a board.

As others have said the outside appearance isnt aesthetically great. Fortunately we had already seen such reviews before hand so we were prepared.

Once inside though, the place is great.

We went as a family (with an almost two year old). Sadly we didnt get to take advantage of the baby listening service, or the crech facility (or the adult only bars/dining). But that was partly personal choice / mostly babies choice.

But the facilities for children (of various ages) were superb. From indoor soft play, to outdoor park, out door wendy house, football pitch, tennis court, swimming pools etc etc.

The Wild Cafe area served a superb breakfast. It was geared up perfectly for little ones (including child friendly cuttlery and plates etc). The staff throughout the hotel were always very attentive and helpful. We found them all happy to engage the little ones too.

The staff in the Wild Cafe probably deserve extra praise though. The mess that one baby/toddler can make is amazing - yet they have to tolerate (and clean up afterwards) all of us. Never once did we feel we were putting anyone out. They were also all too happy to assist with any ad hoc requests/requirements (no ask was ever declined).

Whilst all this review is child-centric, our view was that it would still be ideal for adults. There are plenty of provisions made to make avoiding them possible.

One small gripe would be the adult food in the Wild Cafe. We were kindly accomodated to eat at the same time as our child (i think officially adult dining started an hour later). But we werent that impressed with the food. And it wasnt overly cheap either (from memory about £12 for a burger and chips). We only ate in there once (aside from breakfast... which was exceptional).


All in all... we would definitely stay there again a) for the hotel itself b) its location (Padstow 15mins away, St Ives and Eden Project maybe 40mins and Bedruthan steps about 5 minutes down the road). There's also a beach 5 minute drive away.

My partner and I took advantage of a Facebook offer which alllowed us one night's stay with a 3-course meal and prosecco and chocolates on arrival for £140. We were also able to use the spa facilities all day the following day.

We felt relaxed from the minute we arrived even though it was during a storm, driving rain and thunder and lightening. We sat in front of the window of our sea-view room and watched the storm brewing over the sea drinking our prosecco which was amazing.

We went down for dinner to the Herring Restaurant and enjoyed a fantastic 3-course meal. The cheese board and chateaubriand were particularly good. The breakfast included all locally sourced ingredients and they put the couples and the families in separate areas of the restaurant which I thought was very good.

The spa facilities are great, we particularly enjoed the hydropool which looks out over the sea.

A one night stay left us feeling very relaxed and as if we'd been away for longer.

My wife and I booked a mini spa break break at the Bedruthan as a special treat to ourselves just before our second lovely little one arrives, to relax and unwind for a couple of days.

For the most part the stay was very enjoyable and relaxing, however there are a few issues that let it down a bit for us.

The Spa was absolutely brilliant, the therapists were lovely, the facilities impressive, clean and not too busy. We relaxed for hours here and enjoyed every second. 10 out of 10.

The hotel has many activities and facilities which were all clean and well maintained, again top drawer.

The quality of the food on the whole was very good, especially breakfast. The Wild Cafe had a really nice chilled atmosphere with great views, however one of our issues was the service. The staff were polite and helpful but really lacked in attention to detail mainly down to the fact there were so many tables to serve, small things like forgetting items we had asked for and not being very knowledgeable about the food and info for allergy sufferers. We booked a table in the restaurant based on some dishes on the menu advertised in the restaurant during the afternoon only to find when we arrived that evening the menu had changed and the items we wanted were gone.

The room was by far the biggest let down for us. We did only have the standard room, however as standard I would still expect a good quality mattress/pillows and air conditioning. The mattress and pillows were really not very comfortable and the room was so unbearably hot that we hardly slept all night. We would have kept the window open but outside our window was a large fan or refrigerator unit which made a loud whirring constantly, therefore we were forced to boil. Our reply from reception regarding the heat of the room was, "it has been really warm the last couple of days hasn't it!", it's only May, not the height of July/August! Come on Bedruthan, loosen the purse strings - even the budget chain hotels have decent mattresses and air con these days! Other than these issues the room was tidy, clean and well presented with a nice bathroom.

The location is great with stunning views over Mawgan Porth and only a short walk down to the beach and village. Mawgan Porth still has a really nice "proper rural Cornwall" feeling that you don't get in the likes of Newquay.

In summary I feel that this hotel is a good mattress and air con away from a 5 star review.

Room Tip: Room 34 has a noisy fan/refrigerator unit outside the window so couldn't have the window open.
