Stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting Cornwall. The hotel is undergoing some refurbishment but this didn't affect our stay. We had our dog with us so was given a dog friendly room towards the back of the hotel which has its own entrance near the car park. The dog friendly room was incredibly small but we didn't mind as it was only for two nights. The room had a funny smell upon arrival but once opening the windows it had gone - I can only assume that it was a doggy smell due to it being a dog friendly room. The bed was very comfortable and we had a great nights sleep. The sound of birdsong was incredible & made the stay very peaceful. The shower was very powerful even though the bathroom was quite small too. Breakfast was lovely & the morning waiting staff couldn't do enough for us.
I think if I was to stay here again it would be good to experience another room -albeit dog friendly and see what else the hotel has to offer. It would also be good to be able to experience breakfast in bed. Apart from that the hotel is good & I would stay there again & recommend to others.
