A very pleasant, traditional hotel. Although tourism is a key industry in Cornwall there are not as many hotels to choose from for the business traveller as you might expect, and apart from the growing number of chain hotels places like the Restormel Lodge are a rarity in this part of the county. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and decorated to a good standard, although perhaps looking a little dated in the public areas. But don't let that put you off - the food is excellent and the service is very good indeed. Perfectly situated for attractions such as the Eden Project and Heligan you'll enjoy a stay in this hotel.

Many thanks for your reviews on our food & service, as you have mentioned we are only 10 minutes away from the fabulous Eden Project! I am aware of our public areas and this is something we are planning on updating this year!

We stayed here 14-16 February taking advantage of their Valentines package. They pulled out all the stops for our 3 course meal decorating the tables with love hearts & rose petals. The dinner was absolutely delicious & the chilled fizz & chocolates waiting in our room was a lovely touch. Our room was extremely comfortable overlooking the pool terrace & we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Thank you Restormel Lodge.

We stayed for a weekend, as we were visiting family in Newquay. It was well worth the extra travelling. A clean and modern hotel with old fashioned friendliness. We had intended eating elsewhere but as the weather was so awful we had our evening meal in the hotel. I'm so pleased we did. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. Breakfast was just as good, a combination of help yourself and cooked to order. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who were helpful without being intrusive. I would strongly recommend Restormel Lodge.

Just back from a 4 day very relaxing stay in 'sleepy' Lostwithiel and I have to pen my own appreciative comments about this hotel, staff and accommodation. Being elderly and with a disabled wife, we were allocated a lovely ground floor room overlooking the patio and pool, with an en suite 'wet room' almost as large as the bedroom. The room, together with the restaurant and bar, decorated in a relaxing maroon based style - nothing garish about this hotel. Gentle background music in the public areas (hardly noticeable), the lounge bar had some very comfortable seating - if you must have din when enjoying conversation with your evening drinks then there are one or two pubs within staggering distance - not for me,,,,, Staff on reception and restaurant were excellent, friendly, helpful and interested in our stay. One of those rare places to which we would happily return.
As for Lostwithiel, unfortunately suffers from having to cope with the A390 traffic. But walkers can avoid the main road by using the rear entrance to South Street, and hence enjoy some quiet walks browsing some very interesting antique shops - we found some Cranberry glass to add to our collection at a VERY reasonable price.

We stayed for 4 nights in November, what a super hotel, very friendly & helpful staff, they treated us like friends even though this was our first visit, nothing was too much trouble for them. The hotel was very clean & tidy, our room (8) had lovely comfortable beds & was cleaned well every day & there was always plenty of tea,coffee etc. Breakfast was excellent,and always plenty of it. We ate in the hotel each evening & the food was always 1st class, my husband & myself tried different meals each night and we both said we had the best meals!!, the duck was the best I have ever tasted. There are plenty of places to visit nearby& lovely walks by the close-by river. We joined in the Remembrance Day service & parade,it was lovely & we were made to feel very welcome.We plan to come back again soon. A big thank-you to all the staff.
