We have just had a five day stay at the Tregenna Castle which was wonderful at every level.
The hotel grounds were impeccably maintained and the hotel has superb views over the town and to sea. Our West wing rooms (our first night was in a non-sea view room) were warm, well-equipped and comfortable. The rooms were kept spotlessly clean as were all the public areas.
The catering this year was spot on. We ate in the Brasserie Restaurant once and had a very pleasant meal. Breakfast was excellent with well cooked porridge and beautiful smoked haddock with a poached egg as special highlights. My only small gripe is to ask that the management reintroduce pots of tea and coffee at breakfast time rather than the current do-it-yourself arrangement. I know it would need more staff and staff cost money but it would make such a difference to the quality of the breakfast time experience.
One of the real joys of staying at the Tregenna Castle is the quality of the staff team. It feels almost mean to single out individuals but BIG thank yous to Fred who found time to answer my questions about the history of the hotel and share with me fascinating facts I had never known about the past in St Ives; to Fiona in the Brasserie whose quiet, unshowy, friendly efficiency made our morning coffees and afternoon teas so very pleasant and to Illona in Castle Beauty who retains my wife's vote as the very best beauty therapist anywhere.
We only got to Cornwall once this year but we had a wonderful almost magical time at the Tregenna Castle.
