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.

After eating & staying here many times in the past, we were very disappointed with the service we recently received. We were asked for our starter and mains order without being shown a wine list - we had to ask for it. We waited over...an hour for our main course. Whilst waiting we chatted and laughed and made the most of the time. A member of staff approached us and said we looked bored. Far from it, despite the wait for our mains but felt this was very rude of him to make such a silly comment. He made no effort to ask why we might be bored as he thought we were. There was a function taking place in the adjoining room, the Venetian Suite and it seemed all attention was given to that room and its guests. A gentleman on a table nearby commented to the waiter that he had been given the wrong sauce with his meal, it wasn’t as per the menu. Have to say the food was superb, as ever and this experience will not deter us from revisiting for now, but if we receive this lack of service again we will definitely think twice about returning. Hoping standards slipped just for that evening only.More

Arranged with staff night before over their chat to arrive at 5.30, this was cleared apparently by management. On arrival told they didn't know, and were having a handover meeting . Asked to wait and then they didn't call us in. Went back when saw...others being seated. Beautiful setting. Overpriced starter which took an age to come. Chicken Madras as Main meal arrived at 6.50pm, rice and Naan very tasty but the madras was sweet, too tomatoey and had no depth. This was also a birthday meal, that had to be rushed and left no time for dessert. We were not the only table having difficulty, wrong drink and food order to the table beside us. I love the Penventon Hotel, over the years have visited several times and have been happy but last night was a shambles. If you are going to do a pre theatre dinner meal you need to allow the customer time to eat. I had given you time to do this. Please improve your standards as last night really let you down.More

I stayed at The Penventon with a friend for my birthday and it was nothing less than perfect! When walking into my room they had decorated it with balloons and an elephant made out of bath towels, such a sweet touch. I was then later...greeted with prosecco at my door!! We also had dinner in the restaurant and the atmosphere was so calm and welcoming. I had the main chicken dish and it was divine. All the staff were so friendly and accommodating, will definitely be staying again.More

Great service, very good food and exceptional value for money. The roast potatoes could have been better and, as with many restaurants, there was not enough toast with the potted mackerel starter. These are relatively minor when the meal is taken as a whole. You...need a good appetite because the portions are on the large side. Good atmosphere. I would recommend as a Sunday lunch venue.More

Lovely restaurant. We had 2 great evening meals whilst we were staying at the hotel, all of which were delicious and generous sized portions. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Not much of an atmosphere but that was simply due to not many diners...in the restaurant when we were there. We will return when we visit Cornwall again.More

Wow what a wonderful afternoon with the girls. We booked the festive afternoon tea as a treat for our mums & the food, drinks & presentation were fabulous. Out came fresh Turkey & salmon sandwiches, huge homemade scones with the famous Mrs P’s Jam, Baileys...mini cheesecakes & lots of other delicious treat’s. There was even a veggie option that looked just as good. Each of us were treated to a mulled wine which was included in the offer. The atmosphere was festive & the staff were fun & friendly. This is by far one of the best afternoon teas I’ve had, great value & everything is fresh & lots of choice…highly recommend booking one of these, you will not be disappointed!More

The best Seafood special I have ever had. I stay here regularly and love the fact there is a daily seafood special which is always creative and a great combinations of flavours and fresh fish. This week was a WOW, I absolutely love crayfish tails...and never realised how amazing they could taste. Sean the chef prepared me (and everyone else who was lucky enough to order them) the most amazing dish, I’ve never had such well prepared crayfish before. If I had to rate them out of 10 I would go a strong 12. Yes this sounds a both gushing and over the top .. But it’s not this dish was truly that good. So much so I asked if they could keep some back for the next night, which I am sat waiting for. Highly recommended this hotel restaurant if you are in the area.More

It has been a number of years since we last ate at the Penventon. It had got a bit tired. We went this evening after swimming and, although things looked the same, the menu was excellent and the service attentive. We both has the gnocchi...in Jerusalem artichoke veloute. This was very good. The house salad was generous and we struggled to finish the nibbles we had in place of a starter. The wine list looked good. We will be back. It was quiet on a Monday evening but it is always advisable to book.More

We had booked ahead and informed the restaurant team prior to arrival it was for a birthday. It was our Grandma's 93rd Birthday! We had looked at other restaurants and hotels but had decided on the Penventon's afternoon tea. I had travelled for our afternoon...tea. On arrival I had to leave my table to request our coats were hung. At the start we ordered water for the table. That didn't arrive with the other drinks. That arrived just after we had finished our meal. We were never asked if our food was okay. On three occasions I had to leave the table and restaurant and go to the bar to request service. I did ask the woman at the bar if it was normal to not have waiting staff? I have the upmost respect for hospitality and covid has had a huge impact on the hospitality trade. However there were only three tables dining including ours. At the end we decided we would take our remaining cakes and scones. We were given two paper bags as no boxes were available. The scones were wrapped in tinfoil. The server was pleasant. However he appeared to be on his own. We didn't find the service to be attentive or of the standard you would expect within a four star hotel. After leaving all members of the party decided we wouldn't return. We are going to book afternoon tea at another restaurant and hopefully give our Grandma a better experience. It has the potential to offer diners a wonderful experience. The hotel itself looked clean and the decor was pleasant.More

Went for lunch to celebrate my birthday. Ordered the beetroot and feta salad as meal.. service is extremely slow and we ended up waiting 45 mins for service of food and there was only three other tables occupied in dining room. When it arrived, it...was a bowl of salad leaves with four ting squares of tasteless feta cheese and no beetroot. I questioned a member of staff who took my bowl back to kitchen, others at table had almost finished their lunch when my bowl came back with a few added chunks of yellow beetroot chucked on top…. This beetroot had no taste…. How can these establishments warrant the price they are charging for this quality of food. Then I ordered coffee and cake after as feeling still hungry. A catering dry slice of walnut and coffee cake was given over to me.. Terrible.. Come on Penventon, what’s going on..More
