“Excellent location, friendly staff, definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed June 6, 2010

We travelled to Perranporth to go to concerts at the Watering Hole, just across the beach.from Seiners, the view could not be better, right on the edge of the bay - the room we stayed in was very clean, the staff were very friendly and attentive, check in was the easiest I have experienced. . We had a bar meal one night which was fine, it is not a 5 Star hotel but is excellent value for the price. The view from the Rocks restaurant is to die for, unfortunately, we couldn't manage dinner due to our scehdule but we did enjoy the view over breakfast. I would definitely recommend it as long as you don't expect a luxury hotel.

One of my best friends got married at Seiners so myself & a group of friends decided to book a few days at the hotel to enjoy the local area.
The hotels main attraction is it's fantastic location-beach side with lovely views of the bay. Unfortunately the rest of the hotel seriously let's it down. The rooms are very dated-bed linen is terrible & the bathrooms are
in a serious need of improvement. Our bath had mould all over it & wood had swelled from being wet. Whilst some reviews have praised the food, we found the service very poor. A number of the items on the breakfast menu were not avaliable on several of the mornings we stayed. We decides to have dinner at the bar one night & ordered steaks. The sauce they were advertised with was unavaliable
& they did not come with mushrooms as advertised. The car parking is awful-very limited. Our friends could not find a space so were forced to pay for parking nearby-which the hotel then refused to reimburse.
The Walls of our bedroom were also very thin-we could hear
everything from next door! Eek.
In short, don't go booking thinking you will be staying in a nice hotel. I would say it is 2* at best. The price
is awful-near on £250 for 4 nights. Rip off. I feel very angry that we have wasted money on this poor hotel.

This hotel has an absolutely fantastic location. You walk out of the hotel and onto the beach.  Rooms have recently been spruced up and the bathrooms are fine. The rooms were very clean, no problems checking in or out, in fact a very efficient manager.
Never going to be 5 star but a great hotel.  The rooms, on the east facing, beachfront side are subject to early morning light, which makes it difficult to sleep in, but nice for breakfast on the balcony. You'll need to take your sundowners at the beach pub which is a short walk away. 
The breakfast included has a nice selection and the dining room is nicely decorated. The "rocks restauarant" is also nice.
Two suggestions I'd make are, that shutters or shutout blinds were fitted to the beach view windows, and there was a choice of a continental breaky. Hotels in scandinavia also give the option of guests making their own lunch (sandwiches) from the breakfast buffett, which you pay a little extra for but saves you the hastle of going elsewhere for lunch.
Altogether, a very enjoyable stay.

Having viewed the website we were looking forward to a really nice quiet weekend in Cornwall. The hotel looked contemporary, clean and fantastically located along with the fine dining restaurant, I was very exciting.

I couldn't have been more disappointed. The reception was the bar, a gloomy slightly musty smelling bar. The bedroom was very dated, the carpet was filthy, I would hate to think what caused the stains!!
The bed was the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in, resulting in a very little sleep. On the second night there was live music in the bar, which was not mentioned to us at any time during our booking or our check-in. It was so loud that the floor was actually vibrating, and didn't finish until 1am, when all the people then left very noisily.
Having complained the receptionist was surprised that we would find this unreasonable!
Fine dining restaurant- it was a nice enough restaurant with a cracking view, but the food was mediocre and was definitely NOT fine dining.

The view was amazing, I would definitely recommend visiting Perranporth to walk along the beach but make sure you stay somewhere else, if you like cleanliness, good food and sleep!

Stayed here for the Triathlon last weekend. Agree with other reviwers that the breakfasts are great wide choice off a menu, the location is ideal too. Nice bar area. But ..... the rooms are dated and although clean, money does need spending certainly on the bathrooms. Our friends stayed in a room over the bar, which was noisy especially when there was a wedding on the Sauturday night. Would stay again but recommend rooms away from the bar area.

How sad that this hotel which has such a beautiful position should have such awful rooms, cramped, dated, extremely uncomfortable beds, not to mention the horrible cheap foam pillows, also no hand towels available which seems rather odd. Despite booking 4 months in advance they had 'no record' of our booking, then with the shock of the room it wasn't a very good start. The room was clean but cheap furniture & the need for redecoration made it look rather unkempt, the windows were so corroded they didn't shut so no maintentance had been done for a long time either. The only redeeming features were the friendly staff & the breakfast.
