Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We bagged a very good, very cheap, room on a winter deal while our kitchen is being finished, and couldn't have enjoyed it more. The room was spacious and with excellent views. Breakfast was of a good standard, though not all staff were particularly perky in the morning.
The hotels restaurant and cocktail bar are both great. If it's wet and windy, the nearby Sazerac (on the same street) offers a real treat for drinking and dining, and the Deck (also on the same street) also have great food with a sort of American burger joint sort of cuisine. So perfect location for storm watching while not having to travel too far to find food for anyone.
We probably won't be staying again, though we'd fully recommend them to our future visitors!

This small hotel is perfectly situated. A few minutes from the town and from the canal, and right by the beach. It is also right at the start of some beautiful walks.

We had superb communications from the reception desk from the start and a very warm welcome. What really stood out for us was the consistency of this warm "nothing is too much trouble" attitude. You'll get this from reception, bar and restaurant staff and the cleaning staff too. Even with covid restrictions and some shortages, they work tirelessly and are absolutely charming.

We had two rooms while there, upgrading for a few days when availability arose, to enjoy the sea view and in my opinion, this upgrade was well worth it. The views are spectacular from the room, but if you don't get this, don't worry, the bar and terrace are super places to enjoy your day and catch the sunset. Both rooms were fresh and clean with nice bathrooms, a Dyson fan, and a small fridge. One, a little bigger, had a bit more furniture but both were comfy. I found that the double bed was a bit too small for us, but I'm a bit of a 'sleep princess'.

Because of covid, the restaurant only served food at breakfast time. We either ate out or used the order in services for dinner. You can bring your own food in and use the "cosy lounge" or use their partnership with The Deck and eat in the bar/restaurant area. Both worked well but it would be nice if the restaurant is open for dinner again before long.

Walks around here are plenty and varied; some flat (along the canal, for example) others more challenging as you climb and descend the coastal paths. Thanks to a staff tip, we walked along the beach at low tide through several bays and took the coastal path back when the tide came in. We used the Cornwall map but since the routes are so well marked, you don't need it, though the app has interesting information about the sights and the area.

We had such a good time that we are going back again in September.

We had a superior room at £240 for one night including breakfast. The fixtures and fittings in the room were excellent however a badly cracked floor tile in the bathroom could do with being replaced. Parking is an issue and we ended up a walk away therefore rather than relinquish our space we decided to eat in the hotel in the Elements Restaurant . Just off reception we had checked to see if there was a table and we were told we would be in the overspill room (Cosy Corner Lounge?) This was a small room with a few tables, a bit like a private dining room, it suited us just fine as the main bar and restaurant was very noisy with a number of groups including a Hen Do. Having had lunch in Padstow we opted to start with a couple of cocktails rather than appetizers. They were very good. For mains we both had the chicken saltimbocca with buttered new potatoes and broccoli. The food was excellent and the vegetables cooked al dente. With a bottle of white wine our bill came to £95 including service. Breakfast in the morning was a little disappointing this may be due to Covid and the way it is served who knows. The bacon was very dry almost like it had been steamed and warmed up, the other items were OK but not outstanding. We never saw anyone on the reception desk either before or after breakfast so just left our keys on the desk. I did feel like there should have been someone there to check we had enjoyed our stay, did we need a hand with luggage etc but it all fell flat and at £240 per night we expected a little more.

Over £230 for one night. Whilst the Bed, shower and bath were to a good standard and decor were good you can pay a lot less to stay in nearby hotels which are just as good. I had to run the tap for over five minutes for cold water to get cold water during late evenings as it ran warm for ages. The breakfast was awful. Not nice sausage, cheap bread which was definitely not branded and I spat out the poached egg. Was not golden orange colour which most yolks are, was very very pale. First time in my life I have ever spat out an egg at any restaurant or hotel. Was not asked once how the food was despite only being one of four eating. Me and my partner asked for two teas and were only brought one small individual tea pot whilst a mother and small child both were brought one each. Was not given any instructions or guidance about check out timing, WiFi, in room facilities and was even brought a dud iron when requesting one. Bring your own hairdryer, rubbish unbranded one which frizzes hair.

It seems like all the investment has been made into the rooms but definitely not on the food. For over £200 a night, food should be better.

We stayed at the the hotel the weekend just gone. We had a family room with a cot and an additional blow up bed, there was plenty of room for all four of us and our stuff without feeling claustrophobic. Due to COVID there were some obvious changes in service, ie no room freshen ups while we were there but this is totally understandable. Our many requests of fresh towels and bottles of water were met with smiles and quick service. The staff were really lovely and friendly and definitely helped make our stay comfortable and enjoyable right down to the morning breakfast team having our table ready with baby’s weetabix before we’ve arrived. The hotel is in a wonderful spot with beautiful views over the beach. Our room did not have views but that’s the trade off for having a bigger room to accommodate us all. It’s a shame that our first visit to Cornwall was a bit wet and windy but we’ll defo be back.

Great location with a fantastic outlook over the beach etc.
Friendly, helpful, polite staff, great to sit outside, with a drink people & beach watching.
We also had a room with a balcony which was excellent to sit on in privacy in the sun chilling out or chatting.
Breakfast was well presented, good choice too.
The location is a short walk into Bude town centre (10 mins) with a good variety of shops catering for all needs, inc takeaways, pasty bakers, tea shops for cream teas etc.
It’s well served by Buses and Taxis (obviously this time of year the roads are busy in the town etc.
Lovely location, plenty to do, would definitely recommend a visit to Bude.

Alex.

In ordinary circumstances I’m sure you’d enjoy this nice hotel. We happened to check in during Storm Eunice, staff were friendly and polite. We had paid for a two night break in advance. Within a couple of hours of checking in the hotel lost a phase of its electricity supply. As such our room had lighting and sockets but no heating, no hot water, no tv signal and no internet. We were booked in for an evening meal but the hotel’s restaurant could not function and the bar was limited to anything that didn’t require electricity. Now we aren’t unreasonable and the storm was no one’s fault, so we grinned and bared it with the rest of the guests. Overnight the electricity was not restored and by the morning the room was cold as you’d expect it to be in February. We couldn’t shower because the hotel’s boiler wasn’t working due to the electrical outage. First thing in the morning I went to the reception to get an update and was informed by the receptionist that the local electricity board hoped to have the electricity restored by 6pm later that evening. Without any guarantee of the electricity being restored and not overly keen on staying another day without the basic facilities of a hotel, I asked if we could check out and not stay for our second day. I was informed that the hotel was unable to authorise a refund for the second day and that if I did choose to check out then I would have to email the hotel the following week but they could not guarantee any refund would be issued. It was suggested I should claim off of my travel insurance (which if you are anything like me you don’t take out for a UK weekend break). I explained politely that I sympathised with the situation, I didn’t expect a refund or compensation for the first day without facilities but as the hotel couldn’t offer me the basic services for the forthcoming second day I’d just like to check out. My pleas were in vain. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise that if the hotel won’t allow you a refund for the second day when you are still pre check out for your first day and whilst you are there without any facilities, then once you’ve gone you have zero chance of a refund. So with only Hobson’s choice, we stayed. We went out for the day in the hope that the electricity would be restored by the time we got back. It wasn’t. At 5pm about 25 hours after it failed the electricity was restored. So the bottom line is, as they had my money in advance and despite the fact they knew they could not provide me with the hotel’s advertised services, they put their profit before my customer experience. I’ll leave it to you to judge whether my expectations were too high in the circumstances.

We enjoyed our 3 nights stay in this independent hotel overlooking the beach.
There is limited parking at the front and rear which you cant book and some on road parking on the narrow lane at the front. Its all a bit tight and as the road is a dead end with no turning you need to reverse out if you cant park in which case there is a Sainsbury behind the hotel but you have to pay.
The location is superb being quiet with easy access to the beach , coastal path and town.
Our room overlooked the beach with a juliet balcony and well placed chairs so you could sit and enjoy the view even on a rainy day. The room was large, light, airy, comfortable and well designed and had a good sized bathroom with walk in shower and free standing bath but was let down by basic maintenance issues with cracked floor tiles, large areas of missing grout and a shower head that spurted water everwhere.
We tried breakfast on the first morning but this was quite disappointing with nice pancakes but no maple syrup, terrible orange juice and a fruit bowl that was mainly hard melon also the coffee was from a pod machine. On the plus side they did have g/f toast, service was good and its a lovely view to have at breakfast.
Staff are a real asset with everyone we met being friendly and efficient creating a welcoming vibe.
The beach is tidal with an open sea pool to swim in and the sand dunes make a nice place to sit. The surrounding coastal path is a reasonable easy walk and Crooklets Beach was worth a visit.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would return.

We recommend doing a Treasure Trail to get to know Bude, we do the UK Treasure Trail ones. To eat our favourite meal was at 2 Belle Vue Avenue and the best coffee and pastry was The Cornish Bakery.

This is an expensive hotel. It’s not worth the money. Suggest you book into the Premier Inn down the road for exactly the same level of quality for a fraction of the price. The rooms are fine but not really of a standard that’s worth how much they charge. Breakfast - terrible. Super cheapo bread for toast, overcooked eggs and overdone bacon.

Shan’t be coming back.

Oh here’s a tip ; go to the Temple restaurant- it’s awesome

We have eaten in the restaurant previously and have had some excellent food, superbly prepared and served, and with imaginative touches (the smoked beetroot was memorable). So four of us visited again on Tuesday for a special Birthday dinner. On a previous visit the restaurant had been nearly full and had a real buzz to the place – on this occasion we were the only diners – that should have set alarm bells ringing.
We were all VERY disappointed – to describe the food as mediocre would be praise!
The main menu says “please ask to see our vegetarian/vegan menu” so we did and no member of staff had any idea where to find one. After a long wait someone had printed one off and gave it to us – there was very little on it that wasn’t already on the main menu to make it not worth bothering with. I won’t describe every dish we had but anything that was described as “crispy” was in fact rather soggy and flaccid so much so that one of us complained about a dish described as curried crunchy cauliflower. This turned out to be chunks of cauliflower covered in some rather greasy batter with a squirt of mayonnaise that had had some curry powder added to it. In fairness this item was removed from our bill but it just shouldn’t have been served in the first place. The desserts were uninspiring so we skipped them.
The food was not well-presented but was presented in a friendly if somewhat casual fashion.
All in all a very disappointing and expensive experience. And to add insult to injury three out of the four of us had upset stomachs during the night,
