Second stay here and was booked through my booking company, so I was a bit dubious but no time to change it. The hotel is perfectly situated for the ferry and about 10 mins drive to the Torpoint ferry. In its day I am sure it was a very grand hotel and has kept may of those features however it still needs to have an uplift. Car Park is always full so you have to park on the road in a residential area, not ideal for families and disabled. The entrance is up steps and stairs inside there is no one to help with luggage so even wheeled cases need to be carried. Reception staff wear fleeces not a proper uniform which gives a poor impression. My room was much better than last time although not a refurbished one the bathroom was so small, you would have struggled if two people using the room. The floor was very creaky and so i was worried about people below me must have been thinking, not a lot i could do really. No duvet but old fashioned blanket and sheets, lots of mains sockets for recharging is good as well as the wired internet.
I ate in the restaurant and found the staff there were fantastic and the food good if a little pricey. You can also eat in the bar and there was a deal of the day on which was cottage pie and a glass of wine for £9 (i think) otherwise I think you could walk into town and find the usual chains.
Thee is a lift to the floors but not sure if there is a disabled entrance.
