“Peace and calm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013

My brother-in-law died in tragic circumstances on the rocks at Constantine Bay. I had no idea what to do to help and tried to book myself, my sister, his son and step daughter into rooms in Bodmin, where his daughter and fiancé live. I struggled to find anywhere as the Royal Cornwall Show was on. I was directed to try at Lanhydrock Hotel and they had miraculously had 2 cancellations, which I took.
After an 8 hour journey and feeling the end of the world had come we all arrived. The hotel staff understood our needs and offered us nothing but kindness, discretion and service - we were also given the owner's personal mobile number in case we needed anything at any time of the night or day.
As we had eaten little for 2 days we were offered smaller plates and encouraged to choose whatever we felt we could cope with. The food was excellent and the service so warm and so very gentle. The good humour of the Maître d'hôtel even managed to make us laugh.
The rooms were so comfortable and remarkably we all slept well. We stayed 2 nights and would certainly like to return one day in happier circumstances. The view of the well-kept golf course was delightful and breakfast, like dinner, was an assortment of freshly prepared local produce and very good value.
This hotel deserves all its praise and more.

Room Tip: All excellent rooms as far as I can ascertain

I am sorry but I am out of line with other reviewers who have given the hotel five stars. I agree the staff are very friendly, helpful and charming but the food wasn't very good at all and the place is a bit like an aircraft hanger. I didn't really enjoy the stay and I would compare and contrast with Hotel Cornwall where I enjoyed the stay and the food. Perhaps its me?

Lovely hotel, late arrival but reception still pleasant and welcoming.
Breakfast and bar area really nice, staff polite but not over attentive. Great food quality, freshly cooked as opposed to hot buffet style and choice.
Bedroom overlooking golf course, beautiful location and views.

Attention to detail in room decor which was modern but different to anywhere I've stayed before.
Would definitely return here and would hope to stay longer next time.
Highly recommended. I don't play golf but seems like a great location for this to me!

Maybe should consider a sign on the road from Exeter. I was a single female traveller unfortunately in dark and fog and sat nav took me down the country lane next to the venue so just beware. Easily rectified though!!

Room Tip: Not sure if they all overlook the golf course but this was definitely a plus for me!

Attended the hotel for a function. We had a nice function room overlooking the course with a balcony, so a perfect venue. A buffet was provided which looked excellent, but cheap margerine in the sandwiches ruined them. Why use margerine, ugh.

From our golf club on 19th to 21st of April it was our Captains away weekend, we have used this hotel and golf before and knew what to expect. In our party there was over 60 people. There was not one complaint from our group, the rooms were clean and tidy in excellent condition, a credit to the owners.
The golf course is a test of skill and well maintained, good course management is needed on certain holes.
That is the outline of what to expect. Now it gets better :- The food is of a very high quality well presented, plenty of it too , the chefs are approachable and up for a chat (when they are not busy and that is never).
The desk clerks have always a smile on their face and prepared to share some banter with you, now the service in the restaurant, the waiters and waitresses, nothing was too much trouble for them, polite, smiling and very efficient at their work, you have to remember we all sat down to eat at the same time and their were over 60 adults in our group, it must have been a nightmare for the chefs and staff, they all come out of it with full credit. The bar staff were friendly, polite and competent at their work, it must give them great pride to work in a great hotel.
It was our Captains weekend away and all the staff from at the hotel made it a great weekend for all of us.
I for one will be back to this great hotel.

Spent 5 days here at a conference, for which there were good facilities. But the main things are the staff, who were unfailingly helpful and the food, which was excellent, especially the "traditional" puddings. Well priced.

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the golf course (1st or ground floor).

We stayed at the hotel for two nights, the staff were so friendly and helpful. A real pleasure to talk to them and they clearly enjoyed what they were doing. The rooms were really nice, modern, clean and nice views of the golf course. The food was really good and very good value in the bar.
We will most certainly be staying here again this year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking the golf course.
