When you choose somewhere to go to for the first time on holiday, it is always done with a certain amount of trust in the web-site the hotel have produced, together with being reinforced by any first hand opinions that can be obtained via web-sites such as Trip Advisor. Based on the information available to us, we chose a lengthy 9 night stay at the Tremarne Hotel in Mevagissey in late September in the hope that our expectations would be fulfilled. They certainly were!
We received a warm, personal and very sincere welcome from all the staff there and this extended throughout our stay at the Tremarne as we grew to know Michael, Fitz, Norman and the rest of the staff more each day. Nothing was too much trouble for them to ensure our stay was peaceful, comfortable and untroubled. We stayed in the Portmellon Suite which had its own balcony overlooking the bay – I’m not going to sing the praises of this room anymore for fear that readers of this review will book it up and then we will not be able to return there!
The food was excellent with good choice at breakfast; you chose your evening meal after breakfast from a comprehensive menu in order that they could order fresh ingredients that day; and the food cooked for the evening meal was both well prepared and delicious.
I probably don’t wish to be all that sociable on holiday with others I don’t know, but the infectious enthusiasm of Michael, Fitz and Norman and their staff to provide you a laugh and a joke at appropriate times alongside their exceptional service and quality, makes it difficult not to join in with the general light-hearted conversations before, during and after meal-times. With regards to comments made below (‘Nice place but not for us’), I don’t agree that you have to be a repeat guest or of outgoing personality to welcome social interaction – we were certainly neither – and there is plenty of opportunity for quiet time with partners both at meal-times and in the comfortable lounge area before and after meals.
The Tremarne Hotel is a high quality small hotel, worthy of the recent ‘Best Hotel’ accolades bestowed on it, and we will certainly be returning at the earliest opportunity.
