As previously frequent visitors to Budock Vean, we have pretty high expectations of our visits to the hotel. After a three year gap, we decided to return for the Easter week and booked one of the self catering cottages (with it's own garden), and our expectations were exceeded. The staff were, as ever, helpful, friendly, and attentive. The accommodation was spacious, family oriented, and good quality, The food, if anything, has improved, with high quality offerings at all levels (bar lunches and restaurant), whilst the facilities continue to be of a high standard. The pool is excellent, the golf course in great condition, the gardens down to the creek are really maturing nicely, and the hot tub a real favourite! Easter Sunday was well organised with an effective egg hunt and a superb lunch, whilst sitting on the excellent terrace overlooking the gardens in the sunshine listening to a string quartet on the afternoon of the Royal Wedding topped a perfect week. Budock Vean isn't cheap but IS excellent value (not least when I think of what money now buys in the average city) whilst the cost of wine and food is very reasonable. The 65 acres of gardens and grounds are a joy in themselves and the free use of all of the facilities included in the price of the cottage is a real plus. The children simply love the place, with a great pool, safe environment and sympathetic staff. Well done BV.
