We decided to spend a week here having spent 3 days on a previous trip to Cornwall. We had been touring and Budock Vean was easily a haven in a desert of mediocre bed and breakfasts. We were not disappointed the second time around. Budock Vean is perfect if you want a relaxing break with golf and spa facilities. The restaurant is superb with excellent quality food and wine and attentive and friendly service. We did find the volume of food a little too much and after 3 nights felt that we were seriously overeating and stopped having the full menu even though we had paid for it. It would be nice to be able to book a lighter (and cheaper) menu as an alternative.

We recommend the afternoon boat trip from Budock Vean and also a trip over to Helford. The hotel provided a little map which we used to do a fantastic walk up through Manaccan to St Anthony's Head and back along the coast to Helford. There is a good cafe in Manaccan called South Cafe which is highly recommended although it seems to be shut half the week.

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.

This was our first visit to Budock Vean (mother-in-law has been 14 times!). Our first encounter was over the phone with Lydia, an extremely helpful and insightful lady in reception who described in detail the room options/amenities and ensured we got the room she felt was right for us. And so it turned out to be - a superior room with beautiful views. First impressions are that the hotel is a bit dated - something from a bygone era but once ensconced it became very evident that first impressions were misleading. Yes the decor is a bit 70's but it is extremely comfortable, clean and efficient. We signed up for dinner, bed and breakfast and the quality and variety of food was impeccable - the best we have experienced in years (and we frequently stay at 5star hotels). A pianist most nights and classical guitarist one night were fine touches. The icing on the cake for us was the levels of service provided by all staff. In all our years of travel the service levels in this establishment were second to none. Also, Martin Barlow, the owner made a point of talking with all guests on several evenings of the week which was also impressive.
Being golfers we were concerned that the hotel only boasted a 9 hole course, but we thoroughly enjoyed the course and played every day. The pool, sauna and hot-tub were all great. The spa was good but the deep tissue massage was not as invigorating/aggressive as an ex-rugby player needed to loosen up tired muscles, even the wife felt it was a little timid. Great staff though and very courteous and friendly.
Any faults? I would have to be really nit-picking to come up with anything substantive. Maybe a trouser press in the room, maybe a fitness centre? I initially thought a jacket & tie for dinner was a little pretentious before I got there, but with hindsight I think it was very much in keeping with the high standards set by owner and staff.
