We stayed in THE COACH HOUSE/SUNDAY COTTAGE part of LANDEWEDNACK HOUSE and our experience was not a pleasant stay at all.In total contrast to the reviews i have read here, we found chef/Antony very rude and incompetent.Parading as a hotelier/manager and not very good at either.We never had the pleasure of meeting the owners, they stayed out of the picture.Which we think was probably a bonus for us if chef/anthony was anything to go by.
The deciding factor for our booking was the use of the outdoor swimming pool, which upon arrival we were informed was not available as it was full of leaks.Antony told us that the following week he was having someone come to look at it.Quite frankly we don't believe a word of that story as our week booked was the last week for the pool season.It's hardly worth getting the pool fixed for winter so the local CROWS/DUCKS CAN TAKE A DIP !!
Our accommodation was not exactly comfortable or enjoyable.There was one "CLAPPED OUT" sofa that seemed to have an iron rod that jabbed you every time you sat on it.The woodburning stove did not have one tool to go with it, nothing to facilitate making a fire.No poker, no tongs, no brush.BIT OF A NIGHTMARE.
What we found most annoying was the hot water issues.Basically when you filled the bath with hot water you had to wait a couple of hours for th water to heat again.THERE WAS NO HOT WATER TO THE SHOWER IN THE TWIN ROOM IF YOU HAD USED IT IN THE BATH ALREADY!!
NOT MY IDEA OF LUXURY AT ALL.
There is a couple of positive things we can say about the place.It was extremely clean and i thought the pug dogs were brill, BUT THOSE TWO THINGS DON'T EXACTLY MAKE FOR A GREAT HOLIDAY.
UNFORTUNATELY OUR LASTING MEMORY OF LANDEWEDNACK HOUSE IS, NOT WORTH THE MONEY AND WISHED WE WENT SOMEWHERE ELSE.
We did not partake in any fine dining for obvious reasons.
