The Idle Rocks Hotel is where we spent the first night of our honeymoon (before going on to Cadgwith on the Lizard Peninsula) - and we could not have chosen a better hotel. It is not cheap - but affordable if you know what you want and appreciate good food. The food is excellent - and easily comparable with the best restaurants we have frequented anywhere in the world.The accommodation cannot be faulted - and the situation is utterly marvellous. A good idea, if you in Falmouth, is to take a ferry ride across to St Mawes and avail yourself of one of the finest crab sandwiches it will ever be your pleasure to eat. It is not always possible to get a seat if you are not a guest - but we have always struck lucky. We could not recommend The Idle Rocks highly enough - and shall be returning this year.
- 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
