Got a cheap deal for a long weekend break, so with low expectations off we went back to Cornwall. Room was pretty tiny & drab; ceiling, walls, bath & decor need doing, but apparently getting done room by room, which is understandable considering costs. Anyway, we weren't there to stay in the room all day!! First nights dinner was grim, fish had obviously been cooked then reheated, soggy & greasy. Room was cold in the evening (9pm), told reception, they said "Chris will sort it", went back to the room, thinking maybe he's coming tomorrow, he turned up 30 minutes later much to our surprise; and he was very friendly, fixed the heating in 2 minutes, and off he went again. That's service!!
Breakfast was great, and every other dinner after that too, reasonable selection. Chef very willing to make my small son a sandwich in late afternoon for 2 days (as dinner isn't till 7pm-so a bit late for him, but he loved staying up late!!).
Waiter we had (Adam??) was brilliant, hard-working, but very friendly & helpful. Reception staff were great, very friendly too, with all their info, booking in, checking out etc etc.
Swimming pool was small but perfectly formed; great for families, not for swimming lengths. Spent a lot of time in the pool, was nice & warm, clean and good music, was also a sauna but didn't use it. Changing rooms were small but adequate, & showers had nice hot water, brilliant!! no complaints!! Also a pool table & table tennis near the pool.
My wife had a spa treatment down the road at another hotel nearby, and said it was brilliant, don't know the name though.
3 minute drive (or 15-20 minute walk) to Fistral Beach, town centre etc etc.
Overall, very good value for money; if you're expectin the Ritz, don't go here, but if you want nice food, surroundings, pool, beach, etc etc then it's perfect!!
