Oystercatcher
Reviewed 15 October 2012

Arrived at the premises on 25th September and shown to our room which was very well proportioned, clean, tidy, well furnished and had the most fantastic view of the entire bay, which is approximately 5 minutes walk away. We joined up with the rest of the group who had travelled from all parts of the UK and France. The staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble and they catered to all of our various needs. The staff engaged in conversation as if we were locals and were indeed very helpful regarding local things to do. The food and catering service was well above the standard we expected with good value for money and plentyful, and each day had a varied specials board. We dined on four occasions each time fifteen people were in the party and meals were served to everyone at the same time. Credit to the chef and staff. The manager Marcos was a most accomodating person and even helped out in providing a special surprise for one of the group - St Austell Brewery you have a manager of credit and very high standard. The bar was a pleasure to relax in and to be thanked by the locals and the staff of the Oyster Catcher for ' the best monday night in many a year with our company and the surprise trio of musicians we had provided' was very sincere and we thank them for their company when enjoying a pint or two.
I would have no hessitation to recommend the Oyster Catcher as a very high standard well equipped self catering place to be and we will certainly return again

3 generations of our family spent a most agreeable week in the clean, spacious and well maintained flats at the Oystercatcher. Spacious bedrooms and living areas all with well equipped kitchens.
Superb views over the clean (blue flag??) beach a mere 5 minute walk away where surfing is the order of the day.
Dog friendly accommodation and bar/restaurant a major plus for all us dog owners and lovers.
The staff were nothing but helpful and cheerful and nothing seemed too much trouble for any of them whether dealing with 15 of us in house or offering advise and arranging restaurant bookings on our behalf.
The food in the bar was excellent value for money and offered sufficient choice between the menu and the specials board to warrant us eating there 4 nights out of 7.
You could do worse than a couple of sun-downers sat on the spacious terrace whilst enjoying the stunning views and eventual sunsets before the night just slowly ''rattles'' away !!

Room Tip: The standards in all rooms occupied during our stay was excellent. Avoid rooms 3 & 4 if you spec...

We stayed at The OysterCatcher for 5 days between september 23rd and 3rd october. Considering the time of year we were very lucky with the weather, and the beach is only a 5 minute walk away. The views of the bay from both the bar decking and the apartments are beautiful. There was a large group of us staying and the friendly staff were only happy to cater to all of our varied needs. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff always engaged in conversation. The bar is always busy, but in a family and friends way, not a drunken seasonaires sort of way. The Oyster Catcher is also dog friendly. We stayed in apartment 4 and found it plently big enough and lovely and clean, although the shower was a little temperamental. The food at the Oyster Catcher was very good value for money with large portions and a specials board every day. Local cider is good too :) We held a small(ish) birthday party for my dad one night and Marcus and the staff working that night were only too happy to go that extra mile to help us pull off a suprise that he had no idea about. I really cant reccomend this place enough and will definatly be looking into going back.

Room Tip: Room 4 is the most spacious but has no view of the beach or bay.

Clean neat, tidy and spacious accomodation, with decent furniture, but more impressively with breathtaking views. Food and service in the bar absolutely spot on, not only good value for money, but good full stop. Ate there 4 out of 7 nights, so the choice is also good.
Welcoming and friendly staff. Not much more you can ask for on a break, be it short or long. No hesitation in recommending it.

Room Tip: Ask for bay view

Arrived at Oystercatcher with huge broken suitcase,a member of staff, a slight young lady offered to take it to the room and did so with amazing strength and humour,The staff here are brilliant, busy but well mannered, cheerful and offer help willingly.
Our apartment (flat 4) was delightful, fresh, comfortable, well stocked and modern. It had a v good freeview tv It was acceptably clean but not spotless, a few crumbs in the drawers and appliances, nothing major.The bathroom, though freshly painted and spacious, did have mould on the wall. p.s. we all thought beds a little on the hard side.
After shutting the inner porch door however, we discovered the door handle was broken and could only be opened by somebody from outside, the management then quickly came to rescue us, but did not mend the door, despite being told a couple of times,so we had to wedge it open all week for safety as we would not have be able to escape in an emergency.
Parking is good, the bar and decks are lovely, food is good and the Oystercatcher is lively, but not intrusively so, you can join in or retire to your apartment.
Polzeath in general is an amazing place, with everyone I spoke to being friendly and lovely. We were made to feel very very welcome and looked after all week by everyone, thankyou all.

Room Tip: Flat 4 is the only 4* room, the rest are lower rated, but flat 4 is also the only one without a sea...

On arrival it looked a beautiful location looking over the sea. We were happy to be pending a couple of hours here. Afternoon menu was only option as arrived after 3pm so a different range of burgers all round. Our daughters meal was not brought out and when we asked, we were told we had not ordered it. Waitress was very rude and unhelpful. The food that was delivered was lovely and worth the money!

We were staying a couple of minutes walk from the pub and ate here 3 evenings. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and lovely food. We enjoyed all our meals each night and could not fault them at all.

Didn't give a good rating for stay as this is based on their own apartments which we weren't staying in so cannot comment!
