“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 3 July 2007

We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights. The service was first class, the room was spotless with plenty of drawer and wardrobe space. Sue and Paul were excellent hosts and with Graham serving a supberb breakfast with a fantastic outlook over the bay, we could not have asked for anything better.

After a previous report we were worried about the comment that the hotel smelt of smoke. It did not, neither did it smell of fried food.

We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

I have stayed here on and off for many years, and have always wanted to come back. This is one of the friendliest, cleanest and most helpful hotels in Cornwall.

In the last two years unfortunately I have had to stay alone, but found by staying here that this was no problem whatsoever. I felt safe, comfortable and relaxed knowing that the warm and friendly staff (Sue and Paul) were there at all times.

The rooms were beautifully cleaned (and that says a lot from me as I have high standards) as Marilyn does a brilliant job. The breakfast was superb and plentiful, and was served up with a warm greeting from Graham.

I would recommend anyone would enjoy this warm friendly hotel. I will definitely go back again.

Reviewed 20 May 2007

We booked this hotel as we were going to the Jamie Oliver Fifteen restaurant and needed somewhere nearby to stay and were very disappointed. The B&B we were originally booked in had to cancel our booking and recommended The Windward Hotel as an alternative, I looked at the website and booked a 'sea view suite' and from the pictures and the website was expecting a stylish, contemporary hotel.

The owners were very friendly and helpful and the room was spotlessly clean but the decor was depressing, dated chintz and the whole place smelt of cigarette smoke and fried food. The breakfast was grim, and the prices in the bar matched a top London hotel. Their website is beautifully designed but unfortunately the hotel did not match up to it at all, one of the worst places we have stayed in a very long time.

  • Liked — Clean room and nice terrace with good views of the beach
  • Disliked — Nasty decor, overpriced bar
