We stared here for one night while exploring the north Cornish coast.
Upon arrival, the exterior looks very dated and neglected. There were letters missing from the hotel's sign and the paintjob was drab.
On the inside, the decor is still very 1970's Heaven's waiting room. There's a Thora Hird chairlift on the stairs and the carpets are ancient.
However, the hotel has come under new management just recently, and already I can tell it's going to become a fantastic, vibrant hotel. The new staff were amazingly friendly, chatty and sociable.
The view from the hotel looks out over the bay. The drinks are reasonably priced (although I would have liked to have seen one or two local ales). The beachside cafe, which is part of the hotel, has been completely redecorated. We had our evening meal in there. I had the 'line caught fish of the day and chips' which was red gurnard, caught from the bay you can see just out the window. It tasted FANTASTIC. The food here alone is worth the five stars I have given. We also had breakfast here. The two women who served and cooked breakfast were friendly and seemed like really nice people. The breakfast was plentiful and tasty.
Although the rooms look very dated, it had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The bed was very comfy and the area was just so quiet at night. Very peaceful!
The decor is a work in progress, but this hotel is going to be THE place to stay on the Cornish north coast.Highly recommend. Plus we got the room and breakfast for £50. Excellent value.
