I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights from 24 August 2012-27 August 2012. It is a family run hotel and the owners are absolutely lovely.
The views, which both the conservatory and breakfast area benefit from are amazing. The hotel has a really lovely cosy homely feel to it and the owners could not have done any more to welcome us and accomodate our needs. We arrived quite late on the Friday night (around 1145pm) due to delayed flights which unfortunately meant that the owners had to wait up for us, but they were welcoming and undertanding.
Breakfast was very enjoyable, with a full english breakfast available, but also cereals, toast, croissants, and boiled egg and soldiers.
There is a really nice small bar area at the back of the hotel which was quiet and relaxing to sit in and chat with friends. We spent some time chatting to the owners in the bar and found out all about the local cornish ales (especially Betty Stoggs and her sister). We were captivated by this, and subsequently all tried a glass of Betty during the course of our holiday....even those of us who don't normally drink ale!
I would recommend having a wander around the village of Crantock itself while you are there, there are a number of thatched cottages and lovely village pubs to investigate.
I was in a party of 7 people, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I stayed in a family room, which was a good size and consited of a double bed, a single bed and a sofa bed. The room also benefitted from the beautiful view.
I will certainly be recommending this place to friends and family, and I would stay here again if I'm ever in the area.
