My partner and I stayed at Tregenna last week for 2 nights...I wish it had been 10!
From the moment we arrived and saw the amazing setting for ourselves I knew we had found somewhere special. We were greeted by one of the lovely ladies on reception and speedily checked in. After reading certain reviews on here I wasn't sure what to expect from our room but I'm happy to say I was very pleasantly surprised. The room was very large and dual aspect so lovely and light. We had a super Kingsize bed which was indeed 2 singles zip locked together. Why people have a problem with this we were unable to fathom! There was also a generous supply of tea, coffee and milk which is a rarity now days. Did our bath have a couple of chips in the enamel...yes it did. Did it bother me...not in the slightest. At 5'11 I would rather have a bath that I can actually stretch out in than some new plastic monstrosity that I would struggle to bath my children in! I must add that both the bedroom and bathroom were absolutely spotless.
We were on a £99 for 2 nights b&b deal which included 20% off the evening menu which equated to £18 for 3 courses. For the quality of food this was a total bargain! The pigeon breast starter and game pie main were 2 of our particular favourites. The marshmallow and bubblegum parfait not only made me smile because it was so pretty but tasted wonderful as well.
Some people have commented on the drinks being expensive. £7 for a pint of lager and a JD and coke is not what I would call excessive especially in a hotel.
We also sampled the afternoon tea which was on a buy one get one free deal. All I can us make sure your hungry because its enormous and totally delicious!
Breakfast was one of the nicest I have had at any hotel. All the ingredients used were of a good quality and there was plenty of choice. The lovely chef who was replenishing the hot food couldn't have been more obliging.
We didn't use the leisure facilities but they looked very nice from what we could see.
The walk into St Ives is very steep but the gardens are so beautiful you really won't mind. Most people get a taxi back up to the hotel but we decided to accept the challenge of walking back up...I have just about recovered now :0$
From the beginning every single member of staff at Tregenna went out of their way to make us feel welcome and ensure we had a good stay. I really can't praise them enough. When we were checking out we spoke with Fred (guest relations) and it was easy to see how passionate he is about making sure everyone has a good stay.
My partner and I have both totally fallen in love with St Ives and will be making many more trips back there and we shall of course be staying at this truly fabulous hotel :0)
