We had two nights in the Riverbank suite, which is in a small lodge outside the main building. It's by the small river that runs through the grounds of the hotel. The rooms are warm, with plenty of space and all the facilities you would expect. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine, which was a nice surprise.
The bed was comfy and warm. The bathroom was very modern, with a spa bath and TV. There is also a small lounge area off the bedroom.
We had dinner in the restaurant on both nights. We were invited to the bar before the meal and served with canapés as we decided what to eat. There was a good choice of meat and fish dishes, all locally sourced. A wide selection of wines were available at reasonable prices.
The food was excellent - served hot and with generous helpings. There was no rush to get us out either. A very relaxing and enjoyable experience.
We decided to have breakfast in our room. A phone call to Reception to place the order was all it took and there was only a very small supplement to pay (as long as you had breakfast before 9.45am - after that it costs a lot more to enjoy breakfast in bed)
Staff were helpful and friendly and the general feel of the place is good. Yes, there are a few things that could be improved in relation to the decor around the place, but it's clear that a lot of work has been done to improve facilities and more will be done.
Well worth it for a special occasion or romantic break. A good base for visiting Newquay and surroundings areas.
