For the last couple of years, my family and I (generally 3 adults, 3 children - 9, 7 and 5 yrs) have stayed at the St Moritz during the beginning of the summer holidays and are planning to stay again for two weeks in 2012. We book an apartment as we find it provides good flexibility (family can come and go), great space (3 beds, 3 bath/showers), modern interiors (think Cape Cod) and reasonable value (relative to individual rooms).
We look forward to our stay each year and have yet to be disappointed. The apartment is immaculate when we arrive, staff are always very welcoming and new facilities seem to appear each time we return (outdoor pool, new restaurant, etc). We regularly eat in the restaurant in the evening as we find the food outstanding and the service the right side of "relaxed professionalism". If you do want to venture out, there are some great local alternatives including Nathan Outlaw's Seafood and Grill but we are normally far too comfortable to move from the St Moritz! The restaurant will provide room service to the apartment if you want to eat in, but the menu is brief.
The location of the hotel cannot, in our opinion, be bettered especially for a family holiday. Daymer Bay, Polzeath and even Rock are all walkable (although we do use the car to bring back our surf/body boards!). The start of the Camel Trail is very close (Wadebridge) - fantastic cycling for all ages. We have also found some good riding (Tresallyn) and go-kart racing (St Eval) in the local area. Great surfing lessons on Polzeath beach and the hotel even has a drying room for your wet gear. The hotel has an indoor and an outdoor pool - the former of which can get busy during wet days. The indoor pool is the only part of the hotel that could do with an upgrade, but children don't seem to notice and enjoy themselves regardless. The Cowshed Spa is a delight, although I woud suggest booking treatments before you arrive for your stay.
The hotel is very family friendly (great menus, kids' room, etc) so is very popular with families during the summer holidays. I would suggest booking outside of this period if you are looking for a quieter time (when it would be heaven!). However, if you are looking for a great family hotel which provides boutique style and comfort for adults whilst catering perfectly for children don't hesitate to book during the holiday period. For us, it is the ideal way to get the "Cornish experience" in an extremely comfortable fashion!
