We had lunched nearby, the sun had come out and the prospect of a cool drink in the sunshine overlooking the sea was very tempting. We sat just inside, out of the wind next to huge windows and enjoyed a beer and a glass of wine in comfortable armchairs with sea views whenever we glanced up from our books- a...

We must be on visit number 15-20 (lost count) to the hotel and still love it! We decided to try Room 4 this time as have the convenience of staying in the main hotel rather than the coach house. The room wasn't noisy which was a surprise as it's right by the entrance to the 1st floor corridor. It was...

Having either walked or driven past this hotel on several previous trips to Cornwall and looked longingly at it, we finally booked a short break here. We took the Taste of the Bay option, which meant that we spent a lot of time eating! Bed and breakfast with two dinners at the hotel restaurant and 15 Cornwall plus a lunch...

We have just finished a fantastic week here. The whole family (2 adults, 2 year old and dog) enjoyed it immensely. We stayed in a coach house first floor better suite - a main bedroom and a side room with a single toddler bed, decent hallway space and good bathroom. Food and restaurants in the hotel work really well and...

Dear Mr Lomax, I am sorry to read about your frustrations when trying to book with us recently. We do try to be as flexible as possible but we have a limited number of larger family suites and these are very popular. I would like to be able to talk to you to see if there is anything further we...
