Just back from a two-day spa break at this wonderful location on the Helford River. We booked last minute and prices for the Runaway Retreat were so reasonable we expected something quite average saved by the scenery. We found instead a gem of a hotel with helpful and friendly staff, excellent food and spa therapists who really knew what they were doing. Certainly among the best treatments we've ever had - and we're experts! Yes, the atmosphere is a little old fashioned = certainly a perfect setting for an Agatha Christie - but we enjoyed dressing up for dinner after a coast walk, a good swim in the pool which looks out over the gardens and golf course, and a steam in the sauna and outdoor hot tub. The four course dinner was light enough for us to do it justice and our rooms were spotless, well decorated, spacious and very well serviced. We'll certainly be back.
