We have been going to the Thurlestone for 11 years & have just returned from our annual visit, sadly only for 2 nights as it takes us a while to save up for this treat. I may be biased as I have been staying for a while now but this is without doubt my most favourite hotel ever. As soon as I step foot in the door the outside world disappears, all the stresses and strains of every day life dissipate and I become who I want to be, happy, carefree and truly pampered.
There is constant improvement going on at the hotel. The latest of which is the new voyage spa, well done Thurlestone, just fabulous. The decor is beautiful and the facilities are great. I also had a massage which was excellent.
The staff are amazing as ever, nothing is too much trouble and they treat you like old friends but with a dash of good old fashioned customer care & traditional hospitality. You won't find any spotty teenagers here dissatisfied with their job and a couldn't care less attitude. These people are professionals, from housekeeping to management.
We were also treated to a free room upgrade which made our day, however all the beds are really comfortable and the views amazing so it really doesn't make that much difference now all the rooms have been refurbished.
The food is great as good as any high class restaurant and the quality of the produce is fantastic.
My advice to anyone thinking of staying here, don't think just book, you won't regret it, and if you do quite honestly there must be something wrong with you.
So yet again I come away from Thurlestone with a little lump in my throat, until next year and believe me it can't come quick enough.
