We booked the Garrack through a Groupon offer, always a bit weary of these but we had no need to be, it was lovely. The room probably wasn't one of their best rooms because of the offer but we were very happy waking up to a fantastic view of the lovely cornish sea for 2 mornings. The room was very clean. I dropped an earring under the bed and not a spot of dust under there. The bathroom was modern and clean.
We used the swimming pool and sauna one evening, very peaceful and relaxing and only us in.
An evening meal was included which was very nice, we paid a supplement for the steak and wasn't disappointed. The dining room also overlooks the sea, fantastic views. Breakfast was a good selection, the salmon and scrambled eggs was very nice, there was also croissants, cereals, toast etc. Was nice to let your dinner settle in the comfy lounge by the log fire.
It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach downhill and only another 5 minutes to the shops.
Staff were very friendly and welcoming and the views from everywhere in the hotel make this hotel a very worthwhile stay. Only wish we had stayed longer instead of moving to another hotel higher up Cornwall which was the complete opposite.
