As we walked around Marazion we realised that there weren't that many hotels so this hotel had a captive audience. There was plenty that was good about this hotel including the food, the room that overlooked St Michaels Mount, onsite parking and location. There were however, silly annoying things that spoiled it getting more stars.
First, the car park was full when we arrived and we discovered later that anyone seems to park there regardless of a sign that says non hotel residents will be clamped. It just isn't enforced. A staff member moved their car so we could park.
Second, there was a blood stain on my pillow and a dirty mark on my partner's pillow. The floor had not been hoovered properly either.
Third, the shower curtain was far too long for the rail it was hanging from so it hung in the shower tray in water for germs to happily accumulate.
Fourth, we lost count of the number of times we asked for something in the restaurant and it didn't arrive. The staff were lovely but had no idea how to remember things.
I found the mattress to be far too soft for my liking so bear that in mind if you like harder mattresses as I do. I still slept well despite the seagulls attempt to wake me.
On a positive note, the view from room 9 is a delight and it is beautifully decorated with a queen size bed, window seat and chair, a double wardrobe, small LCD TV, tea & coffee making facilities and sash windows. The bathroom has a shower and a corner toilet making good use of space and again, is nicely decorated. Towels were plentiful and of a good quality and size. This room is on the top floor so you have to go up 3 floors via stairs to get to it. Breakfast is included in the price and was very good as was the evening meal in the restaurant which was always full so booking is a must. Note that breakfast is 8:30 - 9:30 every day. I would have expected more flexibility at the weekends than this.
Overall, it was a pleasant 3 night stay but certainly expensive and with silly things that could easily be sorted out.
