We stayed at the seafood restaurant and our room was small but lovely. Tastefully decorated, beautiful bathroom and very clean. The breakfasts were probably the best we have ever had, make sure to order a hot breakfast from the a la carte menu and try the homemade granola as it is very good!
Reception staff were very friendly and accommodating.
We had dinner at the restaurant once and the food was very good. I agree with some reviewers that the service could be quicker and more attentive but we didn't mind pouring our own wine and water after the initial glass as the place is not pretentious and has a relaxed feel. Yes it is expensive but we found it to be worth it and we would go back.
It is true that rick stein seems to own most of padstow but we found this to be a positive among some of the cheap souvenir shops, fish and chip places and italian restaurants. If you intend to go to any of his restaurants, make sure you reserve a table in advance or you will be disappointed!
A few negatives of our stay we're finding a bit of plastic in our scrabbled eggs and salmon (should not happen at a restaurant of this caliber), the noise from another room's water pipes, patchy wifi and expensive off site parking but otherwise I fully recommend staying here.
