Our annual visit. An excellent lunch enjoyed by all. Lovely hot plates with hot food, can be rare with large groups. Excellent Christmas pud following beautifully cooked salmon. Service remains excellent, especially the lovely Bogdan.

Our lunch yesterday was exceptional, waiters were attentive at our table but unfortunately at the other table they asked for a wine list but this was not forthcoming. The room is immaculate, tea and coffee facilities, television, bath robes and towels very white and thick, lovely....

Breakfast was very nice although poached egg was hard so a bit disappointing. Room was a good size and spotless. i would definitely stay again.

Having settled...

We have stayed here before but never had a better experience. The hotel decor seems to have been tastefully upgraded and the already high level of service has been turned up another notch. There are a couple of small issues to be addressed 1) The main dining room doesn't seem to be particularly flexible on timings aiming to maximise occupancy...

London Savoy standard hotel in a beautiful Cornish coastal setting. Choice and quality of menu exceptional. Comfortable warm room, and lovely indoor pool, perfect for a relaxing break. Service at breakfast a little slow at times. Hotel's Golf course in superb condition for late November. Thoroughly enjoyable stay, thank you.

Everything on hand for a perfect getaway, particularly for, but not only for the golfer. Excellent food, beverages and service at the golf club. Fantastic restaurant, bar, service and facilities in the hotel.

Wonderful short break - lovely staff, great food, fabulous setting. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff; they make you feel very welcome. The food is top quality and the atmosphere throughout the hotel is total relaxation. First class golf course, clubhouse and pro shop. Can't fault it, which is why we keep coming back.
