Staff are friendly and dedicated, food is wonderful and the relaxation area outside the pool is superb (loved the hot tub). The golf course is well maintained. The rooms are clean and big. The decor of the bedrooms is quite old fashioned but refurbishment had started when we visited in June 2014. We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay.

Room Tip: Room 57 is spacious with great views over the golf course. Room 10 (suite) is also very nice.

We have been to this hotel eight times or more now and we have always found it to be excellent. Our recent break was relaxing and the staff just couldn't do enough to ensure that we had a great holiday.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the newly refurbished rooms - we were shown around one and it had been finished to a...

The hotel staff know exactly what their guests expect. Comfortable rooms, dedicated staff, fantastic food, wonderful golf and a micro climate that seems to prove that an English summer can be as good as a Spanish or French one. All of that and Moreen to ensure the staff are always on their toes!! It doesn't get better than this.

Room Tip: The standard rooms are great value and I see no benefit in paying for an upgrade.

The rooms are so clean and well appointed. The decor of the bedrooms is slightly old fashioned but refurbishment had started when I was last there in June. The lounges and bar have had the attentions of a top class designer over last winter and are right up to the minute. The chairs and sofas are very, very comfortable. The gardens are exquisite so you simply don't feel any need to go to Trebah or Glendurgan! The dinners are unfailingly super and worth every penny. Sit in the hot tub and listen to the birdsong. Every member of staff makes you feel welcome, including the outdoor personnel. A wonderful place with peaceful grounds you can get lost in.

Room Tip: Ask for superior room as these have best locations. There are a few rooms which are not but they fa...

This was our second visit and we have booked to return next year- hope the weather is as good as this year ! The staff are all so attentive and helpful, the food could not be faulted and or room had a great view over the golf course. This is now our favourite hotel in the Southwest.

Room Tip: Any room overlooking the golf course.

Having visited this hotel on a regular basis for many years it never fails to impress us with its beautiful situation at the head of a beautiful valley leading down to a small creek.

The friendly service and good food, especially breakfast, all locally sourced is something that is sorely missing in the impersonal chain hotels.

Room Tip: Rooms are in the process of being decorated so difficult to recommend particular rooms

The Budock Vean is every single penny worth. We had a great stay especially the dinner's we could enjoying were super. The Gniocchi's just worldclass. The staff is more than grateful - we always felt as bring a guest and not just work.
We would recommand the Budock Vean as one of the places to go in Cornwall.
