If you play golf then it's very good value as golf is free and it's a testing 9 hole course kept in excellent condition. The food is very good with fantastic Cornish cream teas. Rooms are OK but could do with some updating. Service excellent and friendly.

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 our hotel ran out of Cream Tea - we were pointed in the direction of Budock Vean

This IS the BEST place for CREAM TEA - in all our travel's this has got ot be the best we have ever had, and the choices of extra cakes, sandwiches etc was huge

Top Quality

Perhaps we should stay here next time

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.
