My elderly mother and myself stayed for a few days recently at the new recently refurbished Idle Rocks. Upon entering on the first day to our departure we were treated exceptionally. All of the staff were very attentive, polite, courteous and nothing was too much trouble. We are regular visitors to St Mawes and often call in for drinks and we have to say that the refurbishment is absolutely first class. The decor and ambience is very relaxing and the background music is soothing. We had a juliette balcony room which was just stunning, aside from the fabulous views which you have from almost everywhere you are seated in the hotel, the style and decor is just beautiful. It was a very spacious room with a gorgeous bathroom and every facility you would expect in a hotel of this standard.
We would definitely recommend the Idle Rocks and look forward to returning in the near future.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Idle Rocks has the most enviable location in St Mawes, overlooking the harbour with views across the River Fal to Falmouth. Our 19 bedrooms, most with stunning vistas over the bay, have been thoughtfully designed, each having their own unique identity with fabulous fabrics and decor that leave you in no doubt that you are by the sea. After a long day lazing on the beach, our south facing terrace is the perfect place to relax, have a long drink, and watch the world go by. You may even see your dinner being landed on the harbourside.The Idle Rock's restaurant, run by our head chef, Guy Owen, is a celebration of Cornwall; showcasing a range of fabulous produce that has been sourced locally using only seasonal fresh ingredients. In many cases it will have been swimming right on our doorstep only a few hours earlier and while the food is of the very highest standard our setting is very relaxed. ... more less
