Shun Lee fully deserves its rave reviews. Our stay there was terrific, the best short break we've had for many many years.
Why? First, there's Shun Lee itself . It's just such a lovely place with a great atmosphere, and the setting is utterly majestic. From our double-aspect bedroom - exceptionally comfortable - we took in two stunning views. One over Carbis Bay out towards Godrevy lighthouse, and the other across Porthminster beach to the St Ives seafront and harbour. Sublime to wake up to, followed by a superb breakfast.
Then there's Terry and Paul, who take hospitality and a warm easy welcome to a different level - we just felt so very well looked after. Not only did Terry pick us up and drop us back at the station thoroughly refreshed a few days later, but he then went way way beyond expectation. Clearly, we'd been so blissed out by the Shun Lee experience that we somehow left behind some important items. Terry's response? He drove half-way across Cornwall to catch up with us and deliver them to us in person.
A truly memorable stay, and thoroughly recommended.
