There are plenty of hotels in Cornwall that are more chic, trendy, perhaps better decorated and so on. But that's not the point about the Budock Vean.
Unlike a lot of the newcomers in Cornwall, the Budock Vean has history. Its an institution. Sure it's not perfect and if you don't like dressing for dinner, please don't book and then bleat about it later.
But if you like a hotel that has squishy sofas, good food, walks, a good pool, spa and people who are civil and have standards, this is for you.
Dogs are also welcome at a price far cheaper than Travelodge, but only in your room and the ample grounds.
The golf is good, the food is good, the staff are unpretentiously friendly and courteous, the management is hands on and personal.
I don't give five dots easily but the Budock Vean gets them for character, charm and comfort.
