The Cardinals Hatt
Ranked #7 of 11 Saltash B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 September 2013

For a room that could sleep four - two singles and bunk beds - £80 with breakfast is not unreasonable. However do not think old pub; think motel. There is plenty of parking close to the rooms but accommodation is pretty basic, but clean. Although there is a bath tub, there are no taps so you have to opt for the shower. WiFi does not cover all the rooms so opt for one near to the restaurant/reception if this is needed. The breakfast was excellent and the staff helpful.

We stayed here as a Family. The rooms were Pre-Fab Chalets away from the main building. A Bit dated inside, but had what we needed. They are in the process of renovating the Chalets & it would be nice to what they do with the family rooms.
We ate there on the first night & we all enjoyed it very much. My Daughter is a very fussy eater & the staff accommodated her request of something that was not on the menu without any fuss.
Whilst we were Staying there, there was a Fortieth Birthday on. We saw & heard the celebrations when we went into the main building, however when we got to our Chalet & went to sleep we did not hear a thing.
Our next door visitors car's battery was flat one morning & the staff went out of their way to get a vehicle & jump leads to get it started.
This is a great place to stay & make you base or for a quick visit.
Really friendly & helpful staff.

our rooms or should i say our chalet was great it was clean large our toilet and shower were separate which is a really nice touch.the bed was super clean and there was no bumping into things in the room due to its size.The restaurant has a nice feel to it and the food we had was 5 star at 3 star prices alcohol was at a very reasonable price which made our meal and drink for 4 people much more enjoyable.I would recommend this place to anyone. prior to this find we always stayed at the more well known places near but even with their so called special offers this place is cheaper and has soul. A thorough enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: check your room first number 8 has a 4 poster

A good hotel with clean rooms. They were a good distance from the road so very quiet. The meals up at the pub were tasty and reasonable in price. The outside area was neat and tidy with a nice ambiance. Good place for a beer

Dear AlstonVillians, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, I have to admit I do think we are in a great location here, close enough to local ammenities and some of cornwalls beautiful tourist attractions, but far enough away to have some peace, quiet and relaxation. Saying that I do hope you come back and use us again soon. Many thanks, Ellie Venables

Went to the Cardinal's Hatt for dinner and it was a lovely setting. Had Pork Belly for starter which was delicious. Waitress very attentive and was able to give good advice on ordering. Both had steak for dinner which were cooked as requested and very tasty. Steak came with three massive onion rings which, while nice, made it look like pub grub. Smaller would have been better in this case. Pudding was a baked Alaska which was not cooked well. Meringue was like foam instead of crunchy. Only saying this in the hope that the restaurant consider where they could do better.
Service, food and wine were great. Definitely go back.

We attended our nephew's wedding reception on Saturday and had a fantastic time. The service from start to finish was excellent, the food was first rate and the accommodation was fine. Accommodation was not fancy but everything was neat and clean. The full English breakfast the next morning was enormous - and tasty. All in all it was a fabulous weekend.

Room Tip: Evidently there were four poster beds - but no room was in a bad location.

I arranged for 52 french singers to stay here for 3 nights whilst performing as part if callingtons May Fest. Everything was spotlessly clean. Service was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. Ellie, Liz and their wonderful team worked tirelessly, to the delight if the french group. It was my first ever planned large group trip. I wouldn't hesitate to book there again. Well done Cardinals Hatton, for making 52 people so very welcome to Cornwall.
