“Worth it for the food”
Reviewed 16 November 2012

Just home from my third stay here.
The rooms are maybe a little tired and the housekeeper could be a little more diligent (cobwebs in the window) but they're clean and comfy. Service is friendly and attentive.
The food though, is excellent. A varied menu with food cooked well and nicely presented. Breakfast is very good too.

Arrived at the hotel and greeted by a lovely receptionist who escorted us to our room, which was roomy, well decorated, and with a nice big bathroom. After settling in we went for a drink in the bar - only to find there wasn't one. They will serve drinks from a menu but really there is no atmosphere to sit there in the linge with no bar. Food in the restaurant was excellent.

Room Tip: Lovely hotel to go to if you like complete peace and quiet, but if you like to drink in a bar atmosp...

A superb little gem near Bodmin, a brief overnight stay but enough to make me want to stay here again. My bedroom in the main building was very comfortable, just watch the low beam if you are tall (ouch!). The restaurant menu was impressive with both expensive dishes plus a very good value steak meal, the steak was cooked perfectly and was nicely rounded with some good examples of Cornish real ale. The bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was very neat and tidy with plenty of hot water.

My girlfriend and I stayed here overnight on the 11th November 2012 and we had a good time. We didn't have dinner there as we had already made reservations at Nathan Outlawas restaurant in Rock and the reason we chose this hotel was how close it was to Rock.

The bed in the lostwitheil suite is massive and very comfortable and the bathroom is very spacious with a bathtub and a shower and plenty of room left over. The only let downs in the bathroom were the very weak 'power' shower, the quality of the fittings and the size of the bathub. For the size of the room they could have put in a very nice corner bath or a larger tub which would be nice for couples.

As I mentioned we didn't have dinner but we did have breakfast. The conservatory is a lovely setting for breakfast and the buffet spread was about right for the size of the hotel. The cooked option was very welcome and there was a good choice for all sizes of appetitites.

And what a treat it was. We stayed in the massive Courtroom Suite. It has a king bed up a couple of stairs within the room where the Judge used to preside. Very atmospheric. There is a lounge area with 2 sofas and 2 leather chairs. Tele, fireplace, huge, bright and cheery. The bathroom is also massive. Bath, toilet, bidet, seperate shower cubicle and another chair. And still loads of room left. I didn't like the cold shower curtain sticking to me during my shower, maybe a proper cubicle next time it's decorated would be nice. Tea/coffee making facilities. It really was a gorgeous room. The breakfasts were brilliant and our Anniversary meal was absolutely superb. They are clearly very popular so make sure you book. It's placed very well for visiting the local area. We spent the first day in Padstow. What a great find. Thank you.

Room Tip: Courtroom Suite is the largest.

Myself and a colleague from work just had a brief stop here whilst on business in Bodmin.
I had the Fowey room in the annexe building and very comfortable it was too.
The restaurant is of a very high standard with very attentive staff, and my steak was cooked to perfection, the breakfasts were also delicious.
There is even an outside swimming pool which would be lovely in high summer.
If ever I'm in this part of Cornwall with my own family I would seriously consider staying at Trehellas House again for a night or maybe longer.

Stayed for four nights in October 2012, on the "Bargain Break" tariff. For £55 per person per night we enjoyed bed, breakfast and an excellent dinner including a half bottle each of good quality red of white wine. Hotel is small but very comfortable - we stayed in the separate annexe. All the staff were particularly friendly and helpful. Wifi was available in the main hotel, at no extra charge. Would definitely recommend - a good base for touring Cornwall.
