Just had a lovely mid week break with my husband and two sons (3 and 5). The resort was everything it claimed to be and more.

The pool was lovely, the log burner and hot tubs were nice little extras, the kitchen was very well equipped and the rooms were very comfortable. We were able to check in early and were made to feel very welcome by extremely friendly staff. The lodge was also very very clean!

We were provided with lots of tourist information in the form of a flyer pack and by the helpful staff. Gwel an Mor provided the perfect spot to explore Cornwall.

We had a lovely meal at the restaurant where again we were made to feel very welcome. Looking forward to going back again next year.

The Morgans,

Fantastic words, thank you so much for taking the time to write, school holidays are always busy times for us we were full again so to hear that you had such a great stay and that we were everything we thought we would be is great to hear.

Your positive comments about the Spa, restaurant and cleanliness will be passed on to all our team, and the best thing of all you will be coming back!!

Thats what we always aim for!

Three of us stayed in the Jago lodge, which I think is listed on the resort website as one of the Tregea VIP Lodges (sleeps 6)
.
Postives of Lodge:
Very spacious, clean, well equipped kitchen, good appliances, good quality furniture, good storage, good sized tv, good views from upstairs open plan sitting room and kitchen diner, comfy beds, good sized wooden sun terrace, nice balcony, great clean hot tub with changing coloured lights!, designated parking for 2 cars.
Negatives of Lodge:
Decor a bit 1990's!, stairs a bit steep, beds could be bigger, hot tub at the front of lodge so all neighbouring lodges can see you!, sun terrace only at front of lodge so no privacy, views of countryside but view of sea very obscured by lodges below, not all bedrooms have ensuite.

Postives of Spa:
Really well designed, very spacious changing area, very clean, well maintained, lovely views of sea from pool, good jacuzzi, good sauna/steam room, great atmospheric lighting at night.
Negatives of Spa:
The pool is only big enough for about 4 adults to do lengths, really needs separate pool for children.

Positives of Resort Site:
Well laid out site, lots of well maintained landscaping, unusual plants and flowers in communal gardens, Good food in restaurant, Secluded location, lots of countryside to explore, good maps of planned walks, stunning beach, access to petting farm, staff helpful and friendly.
Negatives of Resort Site:
Severe speed bumps on drive into site, remote location, Portreath beach beautiful but steep long walk back up to site, Portreath village not very attractive, poor range in restaurants/cafes.

Room Tip: Ask for a lodge with an unobscured view of the sea.

Lotti,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review.

Great to hear how nice you thought the Spa was and how "clean" as we focus strongly on our cleaning of lodges and public areas.

The lodge decors are certainly not 90s, the oldest lodge is only 8 years old, and most of those have been refurbished in part already, but we all have different tastes, and our lodges are not all the same, so maybe next time you will get something different.

If you really like contemporary then try our "Residence" lodges they are cutting edge in terms of interiors and technology, have a look on our website and see for yourself.

Portreath itself is certainly not a Padstow but it does have an amazing beach, three good pubs that do food and a great bakery! The harbour itself is pretty as well, and there are some great walks around it.

Hope you will come back soon and try one of our other lodges, they all have sea views the best ones generally being our VIP or Deluxe VIP lodges.

Stayed here for a second time, Feb half term. Top accommodation. Great location and setting. Great Pool & spa. Lots to do whatever the weather. Would highly recommend. The spa/ treatments are very good. Good sauna and steam room. Would highly recommend the Nature Walks and Feadon Farm activities. Didn't use the on site restaurant this time, wasn't that impressed with it on our first stay. WiFi could be better in the accommodation. Other than these things, think it is a great place and is an easy 5 stars to give.

Room Tip: All the accommodation lodges are great

JF,

Thanks for your positive thoughts about us, I would like to comment on a couple of points you made, the broadband speed has been an issue when we are busy, and we appreciate these days how important this is.

This is Due to our location in Cornwall and the sheer growth of peoples devices, last week with 50 + properties we had over 450 devices attached at one point, that over 4 for each lodge!

The good news is we have just got our first "Superfast" broadband supply and have five more coming over the next couple of weeks, so when you come back again the internet should be cosmic!

As for our Terrace restaurant we have a new executive head chef and team in residence and I think we now have some of the best food on offer in Cornwall, our new menu launches this week and it is awesome.

Can't wait for you to come back and see for yourself!

I will pass on all of your comments to our SPA team who are always pleased when their work is recognised and thank you so much for taking the time to write.

Came for half term. Fabulous accommodation, lovely views of the sea, nice pool. The lodges are very spacious & nicely done. The log burner & hot tub make it a treat. Keep an eye out for their special offers which would make a school holiday trip v good value. We visited some of the local beaches & also enjoyed the walks you can do straight from the resort. Feadon farm & The Terrace Restaurant are well worth a visit whilst you're here.

We had an enjoyable week staying at Gwen an Mor a fortnight ago. The lodge was spotless, well equipped, spacious warm and provided a great view of the sea. The car parking space directly outside the lodge was much appreciated (particularly given the amount of rain). The resort pool was wonderful, very warm and the children had a great time. The jacuzzi and sauna were also very relaxing (there was also a steam room but I did not use it). The onsite restaurant could not have been more helpful and we particularly enjoyed being able to take out meals to the lodge.

My only minor comment would be that I think it is unfortunate that the resort has a rental charge for cots and a £10 per week charge per high chair.. As a family friendly resort I think this is unfortunate, I would not object to paying either a deposit or smaller amount but this did seem a bit harsh.

Overall a great place from which to explore Cornwall. The lodges are amongst the best we have seen and the onsite staff can not do enough for you.
