We return to Budock Vean every November for an annual get-together of friends and family.
The reception staff are the most helpful and welcoming of any hotel we have ever visited, and they will do anything they possibly can to ensure you fully enjoy your stay.
In fact all the staff at Budock Vean are extremely helpful, friendly, polite and knowledgable and without exception will always go the extra mile for guests without question or hesitation.
We personally enjoy the jacket and tie policy for dinner and it is a pleasure to stay somewhere nice without screaming children, hooray Henry's on mobile phones or intrusive background music. This place is a relaxed quiet oasis of calm - and long may it stay so!
The hotel must be commended for the high quality of vegan food that they prepared and for the wonderful choices available to us - from home made vegan scones for afternoon tea to vegan pannacotta for a delightful dessert. Compliments to all the kitchen and restaurant staff for looking after us two vegans so superbly well during our stay. It certainly shows their ability to cater for all dietary requirments.
The spa staff must be the nicest we have ever met, you can feel absolutely safe in their hands and enjoy the wide range of lovely treatments on offer and perhaps try out treatments that you might think twice about ever having done elsewhere. The special offers of the month also help to make treatments more affordable.
During our stay we also enjoyed a boat trip that was absolutely out of this world from the hotel foreshore along the Helford, guided walks around the Lizard as well as the spa, pool, hot-tub and snooker table all at the hotel.
The only suggestions that we would make are for the hotel to remove the poor goldfish from the gimic fish tank in the gents loo, that the hot tub area is now in need of bit of a makeover and that a hair salon would be a most welcome addition to the hotels facilities.
Repeat guests benefit from a 20% discount - so all in all, we and all our friends will most definately be back every November. We cannot recommend Budock Vean highly enough!
