Stephanie who owns this hotel is obviously very much attuned to the building and location as this has been sensitively designed throughout to modernise without losing natural features. We really loved it.
Creams, soft greens and exposed brick, with solid wood and brass combine to give a really natural feel to the public rooms. The coffee lounge has pieces from a ship wreck which form the counter and shelving and the ships’ wheels and portholes somehow blend this hotel with the very essence of Marazion and the sea.
This is also a place that hasn’t gone down the ‘cool’ route of endless polished floors and most areas are carpeted. The advantage? Yes, you can hear each other and there is no noise that disturbs those upstairs in the bedrooms. All the decor combines to give a relaxed and comfortable aura to the hotel
And then you are shown to your room. Well we had rooms 2,3 and 4 and they were all lovely. Room 2 is superb, in creams and white with a throw and cushions in the blue greens of the sea. A soft and cosy 6’ bed doesn’t dwarf this large and airy room and there is still space for two comfortable easy chairs, from which to take in the beautiful view of St Michael’s Mount.
The rooms have ample storage and lots of thoughtful extras even to a basket for recycling. The bathrooms are modern with electric showers and in room 2 there is a wonderful mosaic in the middle of the homey coloured tiles.
Room 3 is slightly smaller with twin beds and a large modern power shower instead of a bath and room 4 is another double again with a sea view. These are really tasteful and comfortable bedrooms.
Home cooked English breakfasts, with endless supplies of fresh and HOT toast and tea and coffee served by friendly staff. The special feature for this meal is the supply of freshly prepared fruits and yoghurts which were a lovely touch.
Evening meals were good, plain English food, with some fish dishes and a few different specialities. The food was well-cooked and presented and there were wines to suit us all.
The dining room is informal and with a relaxed and homely feeling – not perhaps for those wanting an ‘a la carte feel’ to their dining, but somewhere to relax with friends.
The bar is next door and people wander in and out between the restaurant and bar, but as you wind down, this is part of the charm. Locals come and frequent the small cosy bar, along with some of the staff and you soon feel part of the Marazion family.
There is also the coffee lounge serving soups, daily specials and of course beautiful home-made cakes. This is a real treat and one of the best 'tea-rooms' we have ever been in.
We stayed here for 5 days – a disparate group from a 12 year old to an octogenarian and we all loved this hotel and the place generally. We watched the fresh fish and groceries arrive, heard the Doombar roll in and watched the tide wash in and out over the causeway to St Michael’s Mount.
All the local shops are friendly and there are a number of places to eat with a variety of menus from bar food to modern English haute cuisine. The little town has a unique and almost mystical charm.
The Marazion Hotel staff are really friendly and will do anything they can to help, without ever intruding on your peace and relaxation. This is a really lovely place to unwind and get away from it all.
